Porn Star Sasha Grey: Next-Gen Jenna Jameson, and beyond, with her new book NUE SEX

Sasha Grey is the next-gen Jenna Jameson–more psychological, provactive, and way more mainstream. Sasha Grey is pioneering a new archetype of American porn actors.

Appearing in shows like Entourage and the film the Girlfriend Experience Sasha Grey isn’t backing herself into a corner. Unless it’s the plot of one her XXX movies.

Half Greek, Half Bad Ass -- 100% Deviant, Sasha Grey

Sasha Grey’s new book–NUE SEX— like her porn performances, take you prisoner. Whether you like it or not, you can’t break free from what you are seeing. She is an artist first, pornstar second.

Preordered on Amazon, I waited through two delays for NUE SEX. It finally arrived last week. And in a word it is, psychological.

While the explicit content surely isn’t for everyone, the dialogue is an important one. Usually in porn you fast forward through the dialogue. This isn’t the casewith NUE SEX.

This book gets you inside her head. And I dare say it’s as dark and beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

One of my favorite excerpts from NUE SEX:

Negative stereotypes exist for a reason, but I don’t believe these stereotypes reflect the true nature of the adult industry as a whole. I do believe that people who fit such stereotypes don’t belong in the adult industry. This brings me back to the gaze. At the beginning of my career, I thought that part of my job as a porn star was to be a chameleon—similar to a real model—to have the ability to go from innocent girl next door to the mean, dominant bitch. Unfortunately, there are a lot of creatively challenged pornographers, and their lack of passion showed me that if they didn’t know what they wanted, I could never have a purpose in their films. This realization helped me even more on my journey as an artist. If, as a director (and I use that term loosely), you don’t know what you want, but your still throw me in fluorescent clothing or a schoolgirl uniform (you get the picture), I will use this to my advantage to make that scene completely mine, based on the performance.
