GIRLVERT - Oriana Small
Sub titled a "Porno Memoir" its actually about a woman so badly damaged that she got into porn to have some self esteem. And it wasn't high end porn either it was bottom of the draw violent gonzo where the female performer is totally degraded.
A product of drug addicts she ended up with a major cocaine habit on which she blew all her income. That, and being saddled with a boyfriend who was more pimp than friend she did eight years in this scene and ended up with nothing.
The book finishes with her marrying a guy in the porn scene, she's sobered up and is now a performance artist, which I believe is code for she still does porn but its not as nasty and vile as what she was doing.
This is a very sad book, the fact that a teenager is so badly damaged prior to getting into this scene is an eye opener and I've been around.
Its also poorly edited and reads like its been dictated straight off a recorder. Not a nice read at all. If you watch too much pornography read this, its an instant cure.
