Sasha Grey discusses pornography, lessons learned about sex, film and literature, and the humid state of American fantasy on the Deep End, hosted by author Walter Kirn. Following the successful release of her novel, The Juliette Society, we explore sexual politics, the truth about the money in XXX, what Miley Cyrus means to culture and where 50 Shades of Gray went wrong. Sasha reads from her novel in an unforgettable interlude, and she explains how she became a slave to great cinema and so much more in this uncensored talk with the sexual superstar.
An accomplished and explosive former pornographic actress, Sasha Grey has ventured into mainstream film work, (starring in Steven Soderbergh's "The Girlfriend Experience," among other films), music and writing. She has released two bestselling books; "Neü Sex," and "The Juliette Society," and has become one of the most recognizable figures to ever emerge from adult entertainment.
