Book Review: Asa Akira Insatiable: Porn - A Love Story


SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!


If you are reading this book hoping to find a how-to guide for breaking into porn and being a great porn star then you should look elsewhere. Asa Akira: Insatiable Porn - A Love Story is one of the most honest and open hearted memoirs you will ever read. It is better than sitting down with Asa herself and hearing the stories of her life. It’s like almost being a witness everything she has done in her life, from doing almost every kind of drug as a teen to finally finding her one true love. Asa does not hold back in this book, which is what makes it such a great read. From start to finish she takes you through every up and down in her life, and has no regrets or remorse in sharing with herself with us. This book is more of an inspiration about life, about not being afraid to do something, not sitting on your ass at home and wishing you did. From the start Asa knew she wanted to be in porn, and despite what friends may have told her, what fears may have come up when one her way to her first porn shoot, she kept on going forward and didn't stop until every man and woman was getting off to her. And even then she kept going on to direct her own movies and has everyone get off on what her vision of sex on film was. This book is a testament to living life your way, with cute haikus thrown in-between.

When she gets into the highs lows of her life, she really goes into it. When she talks about the copious amounts of drugs she used as a teen and even while she was well into her porn career. Some of those stories were pretty fun and cool stories, while others like the time she smoked crack for the first time, were big eye openers. In all those drug related stories, it wasn't about escaping or trying to forget some horrible tragedy, it was just about a young lady having a good time. In Ch.10 when she met Maury, getting him high not only saved his marriage, but helped him in general. You always hear from pot smokers, that if the world smoked weed it would be a better place. And in Maury’s case his world became a whole lot better. One of my favorite chapters in the book is the one about Florida. Just the way she describes it is exactly how a person from NY would describe it. While I do have family and friends down there and like to visit for vacation purposes, it’s really not the greatest place on earth to live. Describing how white trash it can be, when a Mother/Daughter duo get into porn together or a man goes on a shooting rampage because he can’t take a doggie bag home from an all you can eat buffet. Another one of my favorite chapters is when she talks about how she tried to control herself during a blow-bang and was only going to have sex with 3 guys, but a magical 4th guy manage to get him some without her knowing. Because those kind of scenes are what really get her going it was like she was on an ecstasy high that day and the fact that a 4th guy managed to get in was funny as hell.

In the book she also writes 3 letters: A letter to her Mom, A break-up letter with Gonzo, and A letter to a child she may or may not have. I felt these letters were the deepest parts of the book, because it felt like she was exposing herself even more to us. In the letter to her mom, she tells her mother about how everything went on her first day, the people she met, what got to do, etc. It was filled with the hopes of a young lady trying to make it big in the industry. The break up letter was probably the most positive break up letters I have read. If you ever gotten a break up letter, you would hope you got a letter like that. In it she talks about how much she loved Gonzo, but was moving on to do features, and while Gonzo will always be her first love this is a new chapter in her life and she hope that Gonzo will be happy for her. Being able to take that next step in a career is always the hardest step to take and in that letter she shows how nervous and excited she is to take that next step in her career. And in the letter to her future child she may or may not have, I feel is Asa really wearing her heart on her sleeve. She tells her future kid how she met her father, and how much she loved him. Telling her kid that she hopes she made her happy growing up and that if she hurt them that she still and always will love them. After reading that letter you’ll definitely want to go out and hug your own children or even your parents.

This book is full of moments that will have you shed a tear, and have you laughing out loud. Worth reading more than once and front to back, Asa Akira’s Insatiable is an amazing read. If you ever wanted to know more about someone in the most honest way this is the book to get.
