Amazon said I might like this so I bought it. Does this make me easy?

OK, so the blurb sounds fun - "a candid, sexy, and outrageously funny look at what an actor can - and will - do to survive in Hollywood," when that actor finds himself working in X-rated films... It's got blurbs from Bruce Villanch and Chi Chi LaRue, so how can I lose?

Later: it's been a while since I read the book, and I find that I can't remember much about it, despite having marked a page or two for possible quotes - guess that's a sign that it wasn't exactly riveting! It does include more detail about the day-to-day life of a porn-film actor than some readers might be comfortable with, and while there is humor and some amount of character development, it tends to read more like a series of incidents illustrating the badness of taking drugs or of cheating on one's lovers or of sacrificing love to stay in the closet... I don't know if it was written with intent to warn people about the perils of life in the fast (and x-rated) lane, but it might just dissuade some from taking that course - if they read it before they've already gone too far!
