I High Hopes For had high for Akira s memoir I imagine being a porn star makes for an Insatiableinteresting life and I was hoping to learn about the person not the persona which is already widely available Firing the First Elder (Pioneers in the Pulpit Book 2) on the InternetUnfortunately Akira wrote the book in characterConsider the sex scenes Of course sex is going to come up in a porn memoir but I wasn t expecting it in the formf Penthouse Letters style prose My take is that it s a distraction By focusing ur gaze n the sex Akira deflects the attention away from herselfWhat I wanted from Insatiable was the side f Akira we haven t seen yet and she noticeably shies away from the interior reflection reuired f memoir Perhaps this is a survival skill inherent among those in the sex industry It s easier to The Secret Child open up physically than emotionallyFair enough I supposeWhat I can t excuse however is the tone In the adult industry female characters are typically portrayed as hyper sexualized submissive and eager to please Think Marilyn Monroe singing Happy Birthday to JFKr the nature Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno: Tokyo Teen Fashion Subculture Handbook of small talk made around stripper poles It s understood that these aren screen characters but when the actor extends this behavior beyond the camera lens it is inauthentic at best and caricature at worstAkira does show her depth at times such as while discussing the growing intersection f porn and prostitution This is the kind f dialogue I was looking for but even here I don t believe she truly mines her interior What could have been an important conversation is ultimately reduced to an anecdote though an interesting ne to be sureI m reminded f the album cover f KISS Unmasked It is paneled in the form f a comic book in which the musicians remove their masks at the end They reveal that underneath their face paint they look exactly the same It s a clever gag but it s meant to Death by Inferior Design obfuscate not uncoverI feel the same way about InsatiableIt s clever and shows a lotf promise Akira s narrative is fast paced the content readable and at times laugh ut loud funny If you re a fan f Asa Akira this is an enjoyable though not essential read Mediocre in every single aspect possible Suuuuuuuuuuuuper graphic and straight forward about who she is and what she does I ve never before heard about anyone working in the sex industry without it being a cautionary tale I enjoyed reading her perspective Hitler's Northern War: The Luftwaffe's Ill-Fated Campaign, 1940-1945 on it as I generally enjoy when a woman feels free to be the sexual being that she feels like being This book is NOT FOR EVERYONE Asa is a delightful creature same age as me but so so differentShe may not be a brilliant writerr great at structuring her memoirs heck she s not even good at reading her wn stuff ut loud but getting an insight in to her life with all its uirks and surprises is kinda like getting to know herI listened to the audiobook n a long drive and her fragmented storytelling was actually like sitting down with the real Asa ver coffee getting to know her life through tangled disorganised spur A Philosophy of Cinematic Art of the moment narrativesconfessions I loved itThe way she s described herself and her hopes life and love makes me really want to know her In personThat she gets plummeted in the butt for a living that makes her even mesmerizing I m a feminist And I think Asa stands for everything eual between the sexesYou might not have this typef experience when you readlisten to this but whatever your The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified opinion isn porn Asa s book is worth a funny enlightening portrait White House Years (Henry Kissingers Memoirs of a modern woman Any negative reviewf this book is bound to add to the controversy and perhaps lots f people will find the book interesting but it s not something I ll be spending much time n The book is simplistic like it was written hastily Scab or carelessly and the substance is mostly raunchy stories from Akira s life designed to titillate It s sortf an argumentative memoir claiming that because Asa Akira naturally likes sex so much the porn industry therefore is less evil than everyone thinks it is I ve got nothing against Akira s bravery if that s where she s coming from but I m concerned that her desire for attention is the underlying reason she does what she does In theory if Akira In a World Created by a Drunken God overcame somef her ego and felt liberated from the personal need she has Indo No Kao of doing all the workf maintaining her image what would she say then about her life and her industry In another state f mind Akira might get in touch with an appetite for pursuing the activities a life in porn prevents ne from doing The worst case scenario would be for her to feel trapped in the industry and to delude herself into bearing it because she identifies herself so strongly with the idea Giant Peach Yodel of being a porn star Best case I guess would be for her to simply be a supersexual woman who loves everything about her work I wonder if she has had long enoughf a brea.
