Coming Out Like A Porn Star

Edited by Jiz Lee

This one-of-a-kind book shares intimate personal stories of porn performers "coming out" to family, friends, partners, lovers, and community. The contributors represent a wide range of races, ethnicities, and genders. They include Joanna Angel, Annie Sprinkle, Betty Blac, Nina Hartley, Candida Royalle, Conner Habib, Dale Cooper, Christopher Zeischegg, Cindy Gallop, Drew DeVeaux, Erika Lust, Gala Vanting, Casey Calvert, Lorelei Lee, Stoya, Ignacio Rivera AKA Papi Coxxx, and many others.

Jiz Lee is a genderqueer performer who, fascinated by the radical potential of sex, love, and art, has worked in over two hundred projects within indie, queer, and mainstream adult genres, written on gender and porn in "The Feminist Porn Book," and taught queer sex workshops.

"This revealing, moving, and often surprising collection lets you go deep inside the lives of generations of porn stars and explicit performers. It's an absolute must-read for anyone interested in sex industry politics, sex-positive culture, and porn studies––and for anyone whose friend, lover, or family member has taken their pants off in front of a camera. One after the other, these memoirs add up to a powerful, if ironic, conclusion: Porn stigma is the biggest problem many adult performers face, and it is at least as likely to come from our feminist moms as from prudish conservatives. Once you've heard the clear, articulate voices of these porn stars, you’ll never look at a sex movie, or the people who make it happen, the same way again." -Carol Queen, PhD Real Live Nude Girl: Chronicles of Sex-Positive Culture

"Coming Out Like a Porn Star fundamentally changes the cultural conversation about porn performers. Never before have adult performers been given the space to talk about coming to terms with what they're doing with their bodies, their careers, and their lives. It is in this space that we find out they're neither victim nor villain; instead we encounter people whose inner strength and thoughtful, well-articulated sense of self can teach us a thing or two about how we can better relate to our loved ones, ourselves, and society at large." -Violet Blue, journalist and author of The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy
