Whoa, Sasha Grey is looking a little worn in the face at the AVN Awards the other night:
Where is that fresh faced teenager of yesterporn?
I'm following her career now- she won the Jenna Jameson Award for Best Crossover Star.
Did Jenna Jameson ever crossover? Not sure into what. But Sasha has crossed over into acting and modelling for the likes of American Apparel:
Like most of our great morning debates, yesterday's breakfast conversation was ignited by none other than Tyra "Big Fat Prude" Banks. Tyra, who has never drank alcohol, smoked or used drugs in her entire precious life, enjoys judging lesser humans on her talk show.
She was interviewing a teen stripper who had big dreams of "getting into" porn someday. Her daddy was there encouraging her to "do whatever she wants" in life because he loves and supports her. The teen said she would never get herself into dangerous situations
or have sex with a stranger for less than $1000!
Thanks to the skyrocketing careers of Jenna Jameson and Sasha Grey, all the young pornstar wannabes expect that they will get $$$$$paid$$$$ one day and live in mansions and "retire" by 30.
It is great to have dreams, right Tyra? You essentially sold your body for $$$ so you know about this stuff.
Here was the crux of our breakfast debate:
Can you somehow work your way through the porn system and come out completely emotionally unscathed?
Is it possible to be stuffed/pummeled/slapped/gangbanged/degraded on film for ten years without hating yourself or acquiring a substance abuse problem?
I tried to argue yes. That at least ONE famous ex-pornstar had to be issue-free and content.
Perhaps they have a false sense of empowerment and control because they made tons of $$$$$.
Tons of $$$$ might justify that career choice?
After receiving the award for Best Double Penetration Sex Scene of 2009, there really is nowhere to go but up! Or American Apparel.
