Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Entertaining. Exactly what you'd expect."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends on the friend... The book is the very explicit story of a major porn star.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Asa Akira? Why or why not?

    I doubt it. Kind of seems like she'd be a one trick pony book wise.


    What does Asa Akira bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was Insatiable worth the listening time?

    eh It was OK. It had some funny parts.


    Any additional comments?

    eh...

    Avid Audio Book listener. Usual suspects are Leadership, Business, Philosophy, Biographies, and Random Fiction. But once every couple of months I choose a book I might not have picked...ever...but with good reviews.

    "Telling her story"

    Its a story about Asa finding herself through her work in porn. She reads her story well. It is interesting to hear her words and inflections about it. Especially the ending letter. It is worth a fun read. Think her reading the book actually adds to the reality of her life.

    Story
    "Starts strong but lacks coherence."

    Asa is pretty hilarious on twitter and is obviously a pretty great performer in her genre and I enjoyed a lot of this book as a result of her wit and her insight. I've always liked her voice and her narration is very good too. The only problem is that about halfway through the book it feels like she has simply run out of things to say. The book keeps going though so we are treated to her narrating her old diary entries and random letters she has written to different people. That said, I laughed a lot at her story of the glory hole drill and her description of falling in love with her husband during a gang bang. It's priceless to get a perspective on the world from a person whose life is so different to mine. No regrets in listening to it but you probably only want to download this if you're already a fan.

    "it is good to listen to if you are doing busy work"

    i did not find it as interesting as other celebrity autobiographies - maybe i was expecting more emotional insight. a lot of it seemed tongue in cheek but Asa is charming and sarcastic.

    Story
    "Terrible narrative, bad annunciation."

    I thought a book about a girl in porn would be good but it turned out to be a bad narrative with terrible annunciation and stories that just came out of nowhere they weren't very exciting and more boring and predictable if anything.

    "Funny and insightful."

    A surprisingly good book, and intriguing look into a world most people really know very little about.

    Having this book read by the author makes all the difference in the world.
    The recording quality was very good.

    Have not read print

    Err Assa Akira


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The double anal scene

    Story
    "It's Like Grabbing a Coffee with Asa"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it, although I don't think it's to everyone's liking. The subject in itself, and her frankness is sure to scare the more... prudish segments on society off.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it's not a story - don't go into this thinking it's gonna be nicely structured and follow some sort of narrative. I don't know why, but it comes out as conversation (whether she intended this or not). Imagine sitting down for a coffee with Asa, and she's telling you about her life without a script or plan, just talking.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Asa is not very good, she's not clear at times, going on mumbling, and especially the haikus were absolutely impossible to hear. I was listening to this in a car most of the time, but even without the possible engine noises, she's not trained (obviously) in narration.

    But, on the other hand, I was happy that she was reading it herself.


    Could you see Insatiable being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    No, there would be no point. Her experiences as a human are in no way extraordinary.


    Any additional comments?

    Her passion for her work might give you a new view on porn.
