Sasha Grey’s R-Rated Role, Plus Other Porn Stars Who’ve Gone Legit

sashagrey 052209 magnoliapictures m jpg
Porn Star Sasha Grey is in her first movie rated…not XXX. As in, you can actually take your parents to this one! “The Girlfriend Experience,” about a $2,000-an-hour Manhattan call girl. hit theaters this weekend and it’s been getting lots of buzz—and not just for Steven Soderbergh’s directing skills. For those of you who are not dictionaries of porn stars (I include myself in that category, by the way), Grey started her adult film career at 18. Since then, she’s been in more than 150 films, including, “Sasha Grey’s Anatomy,” “House of Sex & Domination” and “Teenage Whores” (parts 2 and 3). Soderbergh even admits he didn’t choose her for her acting merit. “I was very much counting on the fact that the interest in her would be greater than the interest in the movie.”

This got me thinking—are there any other porn stars out there who’ve made the switch to actress? Actually, the answer is yes.

Human Sperm: An Effective Skin Softener

The obsession with staying youthful has led many to paralyze their faces with toxin and completely alter the face they were given. But the beauty industry offers an even more bizarre way to keep skin soft and supple. Beauty insiders are touting spermine, a powerful antioxidant found in human sperm, as the solution to diminish wrinkles and smooth skin. Bioforskning (yes, that’s the actual name), a Norwegian company, is now synthesizing the substance in laboratories and selling it. And stateside, some women are shelling out as much as $250 for a spermine facial at spas. They could keep their money and head to a college dorm, where, I’m sure, the occupants would be more than willing to give sperm facials for free. There’d probably be free beer, too.

    Jon And Kate Plus 8 Premieres, Still Hating The “Media Storm”

    Last night, while most of us were recovering from a long weekend of food, booze and sun overexposure, the new season of “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ premiered on TLC. It seems Jon and Kate and their 8 kiddos are suffering from a bit of overexposure themselves. Ever since allegations of marital infidelity (Jon’s been accused of cheating on Kate with a young school teacher, Kate’s been accused of cheating on Jon with her bodyguard), the surly couple has been popular tabloid and blog fodder, creating a trail of paparazzi everywhere the family goes, much to Jon’s and Kate’s chagrin. “The media storm stuff? I hate the media storm stuff,” Jon says in a voice over on last night’s episode. “I did not sign up for public scrutiny of everything and neither did Kate.” Oh, no? Well, what did you think you were doing when you signed up for a reality TV show and invited cameras into your personal lives? Keep reading »

    Quote Of The Day: Brooke Shields Wishes She Had Done It Earlier

    “I think I would have had sex a lot earlier! I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22. I had the public and all this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning when it was sort of OK. I think I would have been much more in touch with myself. I think I wouldn’t have had issues with weight–I carried this protective 20 pounds [in college]. It was all connected. And to me, that’s a health regret.”

    As someone who waited until I was nearly 21 to lose my virginity, this revelation from Brooke Shields in Health magazine is fascinating to me. I’ve often thought the same thing, that if I could go back in time and do something differently, I would lose my virginity earlier. My reasons don’t have to do with body image — waiting just ended up being a huge letdown! Looking back, would you change when you lost your v-card? Keep reading »
