How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale tells the story, in her own words, of the ascent of Jenna Jameson from teenage stripper in Las Vegas to the biggest name in the world of adult entertainment. Dan Ackman in the Wall Street Jounal wonders if it really is a cautionary tale. Perhaps caution lies in its length.
It includes stories of her sexual abuse, rape, drug addiction and numerous heartbreaks. But as the story is ultimately a “celebration of survival and victory on your own terms,” it is not quite clear where the caution lies. The memoir is 579 pages (including pictures), despite the fact that the author is just 30 years old. That’s about as long as the autobiography of 59-year-old Gen. Tommy Franks, which is also published by ReganBooks this month.
