I think I fell in love with two porn stars this past month: James Deen and Sasha Grey, two incredibly smart and talented performers. Online fashion magazine Lifestyle Mirror has had me do a few pretty cool things for them that I’m still completely gobsmacked I got to write.

James Deen taught me how to sext. Sasha Grey talked to me about her new book, The Juliette Society, and French films. And I recommended a slew of erotic novels to add to your nightstand, specifically 11 Steamy Summer Beach Reads.

All around, I’d rate the great time I had working on these pieces an A-plus. Or would it be an NC-17…?
