Naked Ambition Book Signing @ Book Soup 11/9/07
Naked Ambition, book of photos of the adult industry by photographer Michael Grecco
"Like everything else in this business, this is chaos." This is what Lonn Friend, Naked Ambition writer, told me when I showed up at the Naked Ambition signing at Book Soup in reference to the way the event was going. For an event full of porn stars, it was actually quite tame, and not so much chaotic as lackadaisical. But, I love a good porn event: here are some pics of the girls whose photos appeared in the book, as well as the photographer and writers.
(L-R) Porn Stars Alektra Blue, Kirsten Price, Michelle Aston, Jessica Drake, Naked Ambition photograher Michael Grecco, Carmen Hart, and Nautica Thorn.

Dave Navarro and Naked Ambition writer Lonn Friend. Navarro wrote the forward to the book, which reminds readers that "Rock stars and porn stars spend their lives on stage or screen acting out their innermost desires." And, I'd add to that, the innermost desires of a lot of other people.
