    Received this through First Reads Giveaways but I didn't enter the giveaway for myself I entered it for my granddaughter yes I know that seems uite odd but she is an author of women's erotic fiction so I thought this might be something she'd enjoy or could utilize I myself do NOT think that this is something I'd enjoy at all so I didn't even bother cracking the cover However I waited until my granddaughter finished reading this and then asked her to write me a review and give me a ratingHere goesMy grandmother gave me this book and I was excited I am uite the fan of Asa Akira's work actually I'm not ashamed to admit that I own a couple of her dvds and I really enjoy themAs the grandmother I must admit I didn't need to know THAT about my granddaughter but moving onSo I was thrilled at the chance to read this account of her life and have a look at the porn industry from an insider's perspective But I was VERY disappointed I admit I expected some measure of superficiality from Akira I mean for God's sake she's a porn star but the level of ridiculousness and shallowness was unprecedented I hated the tone of the book and the content was unbelievably absurd I just was NOT impressed with this book at allI think I'll stick to watching her bounce up and down on oh yeah grandmother has to type this up Better stop there p I love you Gramma And that last bit was just to tease you No need to ACTUALLY put it in your reviewWon't she be surprised to find out I DID? Ha

    Wow what the hell did I just read?Well I'll TELL YOUI love memoirs They are so incredibly educational You can read textbooks you can go to class you can read the news but there is nothing educational than someone's life story How they lived how they currently liveit's informative to say the least People no matter how uninteresting you assume they may be have lots to teachAsa Akira is not uninteresting She is however a porn star Most people cringe at the word porn This is normal I've seen documentaries about what porn stars do with themselves after they leave the industry It is mega sad And their time within the industry? Also mega sad But Asa Akira paints us a different picture She is very happy with her life I can't tell whether I hate this woman or love her I'm still trying to decide Asa lives her life authentically She doesn't care if people think her job is gross She doesn't care if you don't like her She is happy she isn't hurting anyone and she just wants to live her life as genuinely as possible That's something I truly admire I think it's great that she can live the way she wants to and doesn't feel pigeon holed to a certain standard I think we should all embrace that and try to live outside of others expectations Be yourselfOn the other handsome of her views just don't jive with my ownI'm not a huge fan of her humor When she is confronted with something uncomfortable such as rape she'll make a joke out of it I understand that some people do this in order to deal with it because otherwise they'll just be depressed She jokes about eating disorders domestic abuse and rape in this book If this is something that really bothers you I wouldn't suggest reading this because it comes up a lotAlso I'm not a fan of her outlook on domestic abuse and abortions She goes to the clinic for her second abortion and she thinks this is like just part of growing up? I was confused by her logic here She couldn't wait to be like her friends? Now I'm 100% pro choice A woman should decide what to do with her body However I don't think aborting a fetus is something to take lightly or something that someone should just look at as a part of life So that was weirdThe way her husband treats her kind of scares me I understand a lot of people are into rape fantasies and rough sex but when I was reading about how her husband hits her so hard she ends up having a painful jaw the next day bruises and a swollen lipI was cringing That's frightening I think her editor just sort of gave up on her really She kind of just rambles about certain topics and it reads very much like a diary There's no rhyme or reason to her chapters they're just sort of all over the place I guess I would have enjoyed the book if there was organization going on but overall I was VERY entertained by this memoir I couldn't put it down it was just so incredibly fascinating Also I now TRULY have a firm understanding of how destructive and terrible drugs are she goes into serious detail on like every drug under the sun in this book

    WARNING This review covers a porn memoir by a porn artist so my review will include crude language You've been warnedI am a big fan of smut a big fan of porn a big fan of fucking and being fucked a big fan of erotica a big fan of many things others might consider dirty or slutty or depraved I just love sex So the thought of reading Asa Akira's porn memoir was than a little titillating Too bad the book wasn't as titillating as the thoughtThat's not to say that it was without an ability to arouse There were a couple of times when Akira gets really into the reasons she loves to fuck or when she describes her favourite porn scenes or her private sexual life that she actually gets the blood pumping down to a reader'slistener's genitals it was particularly nice to hear her own voice in my ears when it came to those moments She is an excellent reader of her own book I have to give her credit; unfortunately those moments are in the minority Much of Akira's book is about the rest of her life Now that wouldn't be a bad thing if I wanted to read her life story but I was much interested in her porn life than her shoplifting exploits and drug exploits and private school exploits as a hyperprivileged NYC teenager That section of the book was where I began to sour on the whole Insatiable experience actually It was where I struggled to empathize with Akira where I began to dislike her a little bit which really makes me hugely sad since most of the folks in porn I've come in contact with are pretty fantasticAkira's narcissism a basic reuirement for porn work one would imagine was a little too obvious to be a sexy uirk It led down paths of disdain for others flirted at times with uncomfortable levels of intolerance such as her feelings about her bisexual ex and as a bi male I found this difficult to listen to and revealed a sort of nasty conservatism that made it increasingly difficult to stay on her sideBut then she'd crack out a funny little haiku or tell a story about how a beet salad turned an anal sex scene into a fearful seemingly bloody it wasn't bloody mess and suddenly I was enjoying myself again Unfortunately she wasn't able to sustain these moments and by the end I found myself shrugging with the thought Is that all she's got?If however some of her peers follow her path to writing and recording their own memoirs that will raise Insatiable in my estimation And if it inspires other nicer people from the porn industry to share their experiences then it will have been worth the listen if only just to have provided a base for future judgment of the genre

    For a book that starts out in the middle of a vivid pornographic scene Insatiable was far relaxed and light of a tale than would be expectedAsa Akira prides herself on doing what she loves and being unashamed about her sexual freedom She jumps around tales from her years in the adult entertainment industry as though they are basic descriptions of going to the grocery store or walking the dog and not taking enemas to prepare for scenes or arguing with her husband over how many men in the scene she will actually have sex with and which ones are just filler cast Aside from some of her politically incorrect slurs and slams there's an innocence and sweetness to Akira even under her vulgarities that makes you wonder just why or how she ended up where she is but she is very clear in the fact that she's where she is because it's where she wants to be She's a private school educated granddaughter of a dignitary two parent household having spoiled brat who just happens to like getting paid to have sex She makes no apologies for it And in that you have to raise the feminism flagHowever as she recounts tales of joining a polyamorous relationship because it made her feel safe or coming down from a rather intense crack cocaine binge or the need for the love and attention she gets when performing it's hard not to see that maybe she's been lying to herself a bit and that sex is just another of her addictions It's eually hard not to wish she'd given some thought to how or why she is the way she is but then I guess that would have been the cliched book we're all used to Some interesting themes in this book include her description of the social acceptance hierarchy where there's normal people who look down on porn stars who look down on strippers and the rise of female directors in adult entertainment Some moments are laugh out loud funny even if they are eually crass such as her random haiku's She does touch on sad things but never seems to stay there long which makes me as a reader think that she hasn't fully come to terms with those just yet At least not enough to write about them yet For those wanting to take a look at the life of someone vastly different from their own this is the perfect OMG AYFKM tale

    can't tell you what compelled me to purchase and read porn star or anal ueen in Akira's own words Asa Akira's Insatiable Porn A Love Story Well it might have partly been the alcohol flowing through my veins at half past midnight in the lead up to one hell of a Sunday morning But that's a story for another day and another place Anyway when I saw the beautiful cover sitting on my Kindle I decided to dive in each page a slow reminder of what I had gotten myself into several nights before1 Who is Asa Akira?To be honest I had no idea before I dove into this book I'm not into porn nor do I have some boyfriend stuffed away in a dark office that consumes it like candy Akira is a hardcore porn star and an award winning one at that You know all the stereotypes about porn stars? Yes she fits pretty much all of them except she's Asian Japanese to be exact Fake breasts skimpy outfits tiny waist and very very into sex of all types with all varieties of people2 What is Insatiable about?Basically think of a memoir and throw that thought out Akira's memoir is of a retelling of a lot of events in her porn life We don't really get to know her beyond her reactions to various scenes various male performers her husband also a porn star and their Ds relationship and her strange relationship with a family in Florida when she was a stripper Oh and her adventures as an escort and sugar baby If you were ever wondering what it was like for an older man to dote on you for a lot of money you can find your answer hereIf you're expecting than just 75% retellings of porn scenes this book might not be for you but if you're interested in the reasons why women get into porn are empowered by porn and why women are so into sex you might consider itNone of that answers WHY I read INSATIABLE In fact I don't think I know that myself It was a thing that happened that I kind of regret because it put my mind firmly in the gutter and it was very hard to leave It's not really a memoir Think of it as a porn star's journal of conuests events and memorable scenes It'sdifferentThere isn't much to say about it than that I liked what I read but so for the tales than for the substance There is no substance here For that you might want to turn to retired porn star Belladonna's 2020 special that aired a few years ago that she uickly disowned if you can find it Now THAT was eye opening

    Any negative review of this book is bound to add to the controversy and perhaps lots of people will find the book interesting but it's not something I'll be spending much time on The book is simplistic like it was written hastily or carelessly and the substance is mostly raunchy stories from Akira's life designed to titillate It's sort of 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 overcame some of her ego and felt liberated from the personal need she has of doing all the work of maintaining her image what would she say then about her life and her industry? In another state of mind Akira might get in touch with an appetite for pursuing the activities a life in porn prevents one 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 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 enough of a break from the sex industry in her adult life to be able to identify herself with other things it's possible that she just doesn't know what it would be like Either way I can't tell who Asa Akira is from the third of the book I read and I don't care to invest time in finding that out

    Asa is a delightful creature same age as me but so so differentShe may not be a brilliant writer or great at structuring her memoirs heck she's not even good at reading her own stuff out 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 on a long drive and her fragmented storytelling was actually like sitting down with the real Asa over coffee getting to know her life through tangled disorganised spur 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 type of experience when you readlisten to this but whatever your opinion is on porn Asa's book is worth a funny enlightening portrait of a modern woman

    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 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

    InsatiablePosted on May 17 2014 I had high hopes for Asa 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 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 form of Penthouse Letters style prose My take is that it’s a distraction By focusing our gaze on the sex Akira deflects the attention away from herselfWhat I wanted from Insatiable was the side of Akira we haven’t seen yet and she noticeably shies away from the interior reflection reuired of memoir Perhaps this is a survival skill inherent among those in the sex industry It’s easier to 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 JFK or the nature of small talk made around stripper poles It’s understood that these are on 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 of porn and prostitution This is the kind of 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 one to be sureI’m reminded of the album cover of KISS Unmasked It is paneled in the form of 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 obfuscate not uncoverI feel the same way about InsatiableIt’s clever and shows a lot of promise Akira’s narrative is fast paced the content readable and at times laugh out loud funny If you’re a fan of Asa Akira this is an enjoyable though not essential read
