Asa Akira (28) has already had an extremely unusual life. Educated at the United Nations International School in Manhattan, she soon was earning a good living by stripping and working as a dominatrix at a sex dungeon. Akira has now built up a reputation for being of the most popular, hardworking, and extreme actors in the business, winning dozens of awards for her 330+ movies, including her number-one best-selling adult film series Asa Akira Is Insatiable.
In Insatiable, Akira recounts her extraordinary life in chapters that are hilarious, shocking, and touching. In a wry, conversational tone, she talks about her experiences shoplifting and doing drugs while in school, her relationships with other porn stars (she is married to one) and with the industry at large, and her beliefs about women and sexuality. Insatiable is filled with Akira’s unusual and often highly amusing anecdotes, including her visit to a New Hampshire sex shop run by a mother and son.
In a world where porn is increasingly becoming part of the mainstream, Akira is one of very few articulate voices writing from the inside. She has something important, controversial, and astonishingly interesting to say about sex and its central role in our lives and culture.

Somebody looking for the thrill of reading porn rather than somebody hoping for a good nonfiction insight into the industry.
It was written by a still immature narcissist looking for self assurance and agrandizement.
Whiny little girl voice.

Entertaining. Exactly what you'd expect.
Depends on the friend... The book is the very explicit story of a major porn star.
I doubt it. Kind of seems like she'd be a one trick pony book wise.
She reads well and expressively. She'd probably be a pretty ok actress. I believe she likes what she does. I think some of it was just sort of trying to pander to her fans and not really genuine. I found it kind of um... patronizing? but overall ok.
eh It was OK. It had some funny parts.
