In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Jenna

Friedrich --

Are you a fan of the porn star Jenna Jameson? She's an interesting figure, very entrepreneurial and in-charge. Many women like her and her videos, especially "Dreamquest," which is full of fairies, elves, chiffon, and sparkly things.

There's nothing about Jenna that suggests the victim, and she's mischievous and rowdy, but in a cute way. It may be key that, despite how explicit her videos get, she holds a little something back. She seldom takes it up the butt onscreen; she seems to prefer doing scenes with other girls; and she limits the number of Jenna videos released each year. In other words, she keeps her fans a little hungry -- smart girl!

Jenna has become a kind of you-go-girl role model for the young and the sexually out-there; according to South Africa's Sunday Times, Britney Spears is such a fan of Jenna's work that the two have become friends. The story is readable here.

Jenna's also the most popular porn star in history. If you look at her early videos, you can see why: she's very cute, has some sweetness and a lot of personality, moves like a dancer, and often seems genuinely into the sex (ie., not in the usual bored/over-enthusiastic way). Her more recent videos are less pleasing. Her skills and talents are what they always were, and her personality and responsiveness don't seem to have grown jaded. But she's gotten way too much plastic surgery, and these days looks like just another overly-Photoshopped flashy blonde. Physically, she's no longer as enticingly idiosyncratic as she used to be.

But the Jenna phenom just keeps rolling along. She's become her own producer, and mentors younger porn stars. And now, this press release just in:

New York, NY (October 11, 2002) -- ReganBooks, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced today that it has secured world rights to a new book by the world's leading adult film star Jenna Jameson entitled HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR.

In a steamy, fun, and intimate guide, Jenna Jameson takes readers on-set, on-stage, in the bedroom, backstage at the strip club, and more, using her life experiences as the framework for an explicit how-to on achieving a love life like hers. HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR will bring Jameson's sexual education in the adult entertainment industry out from behind closed doors and into bedrooms everywhere. Whether you want to learn to make love to a man or a woman, Jenna will show you how.

With detailed instructions for acts of love and lust ranging from strip tease to oral sex, HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR leaves no pleasure unexplored. In the section, "The Wicked One," you'll learn everything from how to accommodate extra large penises to light bondage and how to properly drip candle wax on each other. In another section, "Silver Screen Confidential," you'll not only learn how to dress the part, but what scenarios to use to let your inner porn star out. Jenna reveals what her lovers do for her that keep her interested and satisfied despite her vast sexual experiences, and she reminds us that although many things contribute to a great sex life, intimacy and love are the keys to sexual exploration with your partner.

ReganBooks president and publisher Judith Regan notes that "Jenna's enormous fan base has been waiting for a sexual tell-all from the most popular porn star ever, and she is giving them what they want in stunning detail."

The book is expected to go on sale in the summer of 2003.

Best,

Michael
