Pornography? Why?

In college, the fish and funnel video described in WTSP article "Hardcore porn, racist e-mail found on Tampa Bay Storm coach Tim Marcum's computer" made its way around campus. It was disturbing. Of course, more amusing pornographic films made their rounds as well, including Love Muffins and Women in Black 2. Watching these films, I wondered what path takes a person from adorable child to licking someone's butt on film.

I know that "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale" by Jenna Jameson and Neil Strauss is a memoir and is available. That book actually came out the year I started college. However, the reviews of the book have always steered me away from it, describing it as "pandering" and "about 1/3 full of nude pictures."

Recently, I came across a blog by a former pornstar (pictured above, on the right) who went by the name "Ashlynn Brooke" in her pornography days. She is now going by "Ashley" and is accessibly chronicling her memories of her journey from curious high schooler to on-camera butt-licking. So far it's interesting and easy to read. If, like me, you wonder how people end up getting paid for presenting their naughty-times, you might want to check Ashley's Blog out: http://all-things-ash.com/
