Most folks don’t believe my life story, when I tell them over drinks or by the pool, with just the facts. I’m too smart, too pretty: the facts just don’t seem to square.
But me, I’ve been a porn star, a prostitute, a pawn, and a king. Whoopsie, that’s Old Blue Eyes! I’m not plagiarizing his song, but I’m singing a similar tune.
The truth is, I’m just a simple girl from the little town of Sikeston, Missouri. I’m the youngest of eleven that my Momma raised to be strong, proud, and sassy.
I never graduated from high school, but I reckon I had the good fortune of what they call here in Vegas “Kismet.” See, the breaks just fell my way.
Larry Flynt took a liking to me, and from my first shoot with him, all I had to do was act naturally; not really acting at all. I became a contract girl in the porn industry, an HBO television star, a Penthouse Pet, and a XXX-Hall of Famer, baby. I’ve seen it all and done more!
My story is something of a campfire tale. A little bit of fiction mixed in the stew of a life story.
Anatomy of an Adult Film is a partnership between me and R. Richard, who approached me with the idea some months back. He’s an established writer of erotic fiction, and the concept of detailing my life alongside the components necessary to get me on the screen was very appealing.
Writing this book has been an exercise of changing names to protect the guilty. The truth can be told, but only like a song or a piece of art, embellished and sometimes reinvented.
Creating characters, especially Double Dynamite and Texas Lightnin’, was akin to getting to play dress up, the entire process has just been a blast. I wear the costumes as well as I take them off.
I’m so honored and thankful to my dear friends Larry Flynt, Ron Jeremy, Nina Hartley, and Axel Braun for giving me shout outs on the back cover.
So, sit back while we take you behind the scenes of porn sets, brothels, and strip clubs.
It’s a steamy ride, so don’t be afraid to dog-ear a page while you set the book aside and give in to the urge to fuck, diddle, or stroke … I won’t hesitate, and you shouldn’t either!
