Porn a Love Story

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Asa Akira (28) has already had an extremely unusual life. Educated at the United Nations International School in Manhattan, she soon was earning a good living by stripping and working as a dominatrix at a sex dungeon. Akira has now built up a reputation for being of the most popular, hardworking, and extreme actors in the business, winning dozens of awards for her 330+ movies, including her #1 bestselling series “Asa Akira Is Insatiable”.

In Insatiable, Akira recounts her extraordinary life in chapters that are hilarious, shocking, and touching. In a wry, conversational tone, she talks about her experiences shoplifting and doing drugs while in school, her relationship with other porn stars (she is married to one) and with the industry at large, and her beliefs about women and sexuality. Insatiable is filled with Akira’s unusual and often highly amusing anecdotes, including her visit to a New Hampshire sex shop run by a mother and son.

In a world where porn is increasingly becoming part of the mainstream, Akira is one of very few articulate voices writing from the inside. She something important, controversial, and astonishingly interesting to say about sex and its central role in our lives and culture.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 31, 2014 – In this no-holds-barred memoir which at times take on the form of letters, haiku, and diary entries Akira shares her personal experiences working as a celebrated porn actress. Hopping around chronologically, Akira covers her years growing up in 1990s New York City, where she had an early sexual awakening, formative experiences with drugs, and several run-ins with the law. Telling of her working life in L.A. and the disciplined regimen of pornographic actors, she explores the intricacies of the industry, including the differences between "gonzo" and "feature" porn. A chapter titled "Sh*t Pornstars Say" explores the common banter of pornography, and a section called "Food Porn" chronicles her obsession with eating. Also covered in great detail are the preparations that go into shooting each scene. While some of her stories seem pointless, she gives intriguing insight into the industry, particularly the bits about porn stars' private and public lives and her own attempt to maintain a meaningful romantic relationship.

Customer Reviews

overall very revealing

very honest and revealing, except for the ridiculous next-to-last chapter which was the "letter from Mom". I liked it. Akira is a little messed up in her thinking sometimes, but she's human like the rest of us, and we're all messed up somehow...


I never thought that the adult movie industry would be like this. This book blew my mind away. Really good.

LOVED! easy read. Please make a second book!!
