Retired porn star/Entourage actress Sasha Grey is cashing in on the erotic novel craze brought on by E.L. James’ Fifty Shades Of Grey. And who better to compete with that franchise than a woman who starred in over 200 adult movies?
Deadline reports that Grand Central Publishing and Little, Brown UK have offered her a publication deal for an erotic novel called The Juliette Society.
“For the very first time I can create my own world, my own characters, my own story, and express my own vision with publishers who are just as passionate about the subject matter as I am,” Grey said in a statement.
“I’m not interested in trying to reinvent the erotic novel, but I look forward to taking it back to its source as a salacious treatment of sex, particularly female sexuality, as something mysterious and sensual. Me sensual? Go figure!”
I know what you’re thinking, a porn star, writing about sex? Typical. But, Grey, named after Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, was always the most well-spoken, least fake, most famous woman at the AVN Awards…
Yeah, she’s famous for hardcore gangbangs, but at least she’s selling her stint in the literary world as having an “assertive female protagonist,” something Fifty Shades is sorely lacking.
