Interesting as a biography and as the story of one woman's journey from prostitute to porn star to performance artist, but her overly-rosy view of the sex industry doesn't jive with me, and I am a hard sell on the notion that simply shocking people constitutes art. The pictures make this a book not to be read in public.

So helpful to read. Thank goodness I don't have to choose between the whole interpersonal, multidimensional experience of being and hot sex. I read this way back in 1999 of something, and it was marvelous. It still is!

Wow! Wow! Wow!

I read this book years ago. I read Jessica Goodman's copy when we were housemates, and I enjoyed it so much.

Annie Sprinkle is a hoot and a holler, and I admire her so much.

All sex radicals and pleasure activists should read this book!

Annie might be one of the most sexually sensational lady ever! This is a quick read with lots of fun pictures and stories of radical sexuality. I love it.

It's a more in depth history of Annie Sprinkle's A Herstory of Porn. Great autobiographical scrapbook of her career.
Terese Matheson
Interesting documentary of Annie Sprinkle , leaving her Ellen of no substance behind, and blossoming into a radiant , orgasmic and lushious adult film star ,
