Humanizes the porn industry, showing that it is a legitimate industry with quite willing participants. Like with many things, there is a dark side which grabs the headlines. But this shows the people who enjoy their profession and make good money doing what they love to do.

Actually, the movie is barely R-rated. It could have been PG-13 with just a few quick edits. Naked Ambition appears to have been the director's earnest effort to portray the pornography industry with respect and affection, and for a wide audience.

But the movie only scratches the surface. There was so much more I wanted to understand. Especially why pornography has lost its stigma, why so many attractive young women in America (that is, not in impoverished Eastern European countries) choose to abandon almost all chance of a normal life, of marriage and career, for a few years of "stardom."

I wish the director had asked the parents of Sunny Lane, to be nominated that night for "best new actress," why they would attend the awards. Giving tacit approval to their daughter's career choice, they appeared to be middle-class and uncomfortable. I saw them as not wanting to break all bonds with their child even as they lamented her actions. An American tragedy, and I'd have liked to have heard their perspective.

Also, to have portrayed Larry Flynt as a defender of the First Amendment is either insincere or naive. To my eyes, he's been in the front ranks in the degradation of women, maybe more responsible than any other for the end of erotica and the rise of pornography.

This film was interesting -- how could it not be -- but missed telling the whole story. Or even the most important parts of it.

It's available on Netflix, where I found it suggested to me.

It showed the emotion, anxiety, and passionate desire of some porn actors to win the AVN (Adult Video News) awards in 2006. Some actors said in front of the camera they did it because they loved it. Like a well-known actress who quit it in 2000 only to came back to this career in 2006 because she found out it really showed who she was.

One of the interesting scene showed 2 vibrators created by an engineer from Taiwan. The first one's top part can vibrate at different frequency than its bottom part. The second one looks like the jaws of a crocodile. He said it stimulated both the G-spot and the clitoris at the same time. Consequently, it can bring on orgasm in 5 minutes.

Overall it satisfied my curiosity and provided me with 90 minutes of fun.
