How to...Make Love Like A Porn Star By: Jenna Jameson Review




For anyone who doesn't know (I think most of us do though) Jenna Jameson is a very famous porn star. How to...Make Love Like A Porn Star is her autobiography filled with tales from her childhood that was filled with rape, abuse, and more. The book is also about her transformation from an awkward teenager to being a beautiful woman and porn star. If all of this makes you uncomfortable then feel free to not read the rest of this review.

So I actually bought this book for my friend last Christmas and after she read it she let me borrow it. Yey for book friends! I needed a read for the autobiography genre in the Insane Genre Challenge, so I thought why not? This book was definitely interesting to say the least.

Okay, let's be adults here. I've watched porn. I'm well over 18 years old, I've watched porn, I've watched porn with Jenna Jameson in it, and I don't have anything against porn. If you do, then this may not be the book for you since we get all sorts of details about the porn industry. DETAILS.



When I say details, I mean details. Some parts are very graphic in nature and extremely descriptive. Just to warn you! Also there are some triggers to keep in mind in case you are sensitive to those: rape, abuse, and addiction being a few.

Other than the interesting tidbits we get about porn behind the scenes we get a lot of Jenna Jameson's life story. It was really fascinating to read about all the things that Jenna went through in her childhood, teen years, and young adulthood. Let me just say, Jenna has been through a lot of shit. There are a lot of shocking things in the book and there are some very interesting parts about people she has dated/slept with. Including some celebrities! The part with Marilyn Manson was quite hilarious I might add.

Overall How to...Make Love Like A Porn Star is a pretty good read. A little bit raunchy of course, but there is a lot more to it than that and it's all incredibly fascinating. After reading the book I really believe that Jenna Jameson is not only a beautiful and intriguing person, but also a fighter who never gave up on what she wanted to achieve. Kudos to her!

I recommend this book to anyone who loves autobiographies and to anyone interested in what goes on behind the scenes in the porn industry.

  1. I've always wondered about her childhood, because when she was on Oprah, she didn't really get into the details. I'm no stranger to porn, and I've seen some of hers. I admire her for becoming secure with her body and letting loose like that, with a past like hers. I may pick this up from the library one day. I'm planning to read lots of autobiographies this year. Great review!

    1. I definitely recommend it since you are already a bit interested. I think it's so fascinating how she was such a shy girl and very mousy, but then ended up in porn!

  4. I've heard a lot about this book, but I thought it was fiction. Wow, I had no idea it was an autobiography and, well... I really don't know her, but I'm happy it wasn't bad for you.
