I have not finished the book yet. I am on Chapter 8 right now. All, I can say so far is that I am very Impressed. Ms. Thomas takes you from the start of a young Lady in dancing in a topless bar to much much more. She even takes you into the minds of what a Lady is thinking. Plus, how nervous she is step by step. As she moves up in the adult entertainment world. Ms. Thomas even tells you the technical side of things too. There really is a lot that goes into a movie and the steps to become a star. This book is a must read for anyone that wants to know about how a movie is "filmed" or anyone intrested in a career.

Ever wonder what goes into making a porn film? Sunset goes into behind the camera she leads you through the preparation, location and staffing from top to bottom, and little secret things one would never think of. Sunset a.k.a. Princess of Porn is a lady who has gone through all phases of what some may think as the taboo world, a world she feels comfortable in, a world that has been with us since the beginning of time. She sets forth her philolgy on this suject. This is not a story of her life you can find that on internet, this book brings to the reader her philosophy of being in a star role, and yet keeping her feet on the common ground.

I found the book interesting,entertaining and educational.

A great, fast readable book that will tell you lots on the West Coast porn industry and more! If you know (and have seen) the work of Sunset Thomas, when reading the book, you'll probablyalso see which movies, and which porn stars and directors she refers to. which makes it all the more fun to read (in a gossipy way!). While the first part is really on how some porn actresses start and live the life of porn movies, the second part - even more interesting - is about the extras: brothels, private parties, etc. - I am sure more could be told on these - perhaps on a sequel??.
overall a afun, kinky and enjoyable book to read!

certainly the first 5 or 6 chapters are truly an anatomy of an adult film. Actually, probably really good and down to earth information for anyone thinking about getting into the business. The last 8 chapters or so are much sexier. Although still not as titillating as reading truly pornographic literature, it was reasonably exciting. This is the first book of this type I have read; a friend promised to send it to me if I wrote a review. Overall, it was a quick read and the last half was entertaining. Go ahead and read it one weekend, but don't expect a blockbuster novel.

Buy this book if you are interested in it. It's a great book. It goes from 1st person to third at times - so just be ready.

If you really have zero concept of what goes into making a porn, or even any kind of movie for that matter, then maybe you'll get something out of this book. Half of the book is her re-telling some stories about herself (with some dumb moniker for reasons unbeknownst to me) and some other porn chick having some off, and on-screen fun.

Very juvenile dialog, and with such big surprises as: she screws for money! Whoa.

Much, much better porn books out there - I'd suggest skipping this one.
