This Book is a Satisfactory Attempt
on July 25, 2000
As an occasional writer in the adult industry for the past seven years, I felt compelled to give a looksie at GET PAID FOR SEX. Let me say right of the bat, the book is not nearly as good as Ana Loria's more recent 1-2-3 BE A PORN STAR book, but it is also a much more ambitious effort. GET PAID FOR SEX tries to cover just about every possible way you could get paid as a worker in the adult industry. This was probably too big a job because the book suffers for lack of details. However, that being said, I still think it is a fairly admirable first attempt and I'm somewhat puzzled by all the vicious reviews below because they are terribly inaccurate. The book does not simply cover sperm banks, as so many people claim. (I suspect this is an effort by one or a few people who are threatened by the book's content.) Rather, it has an extensive section on how to be a tantric sex instructor, a small section on how to be a porn star, another small section on how to be a phone sex operator or dancer/escort/model, and final brief treatment on how to set up an internet sex site. The book is far from thorough and it is not going to make all your financial problems suddenly go away while providing you with easy sex. But I can see it being a useful resource for someone casually curious about what to do to pursue paid sex opportunities.
