Joanna Angel and Four Other Porn Stars Offer Up Their Summer Book Picks

When they're not too busy performing DPs, TPs, group scenes, facial free-for-alls, and other wild sexual stunts, porn stars live just like the rest of the literate world. They enjoy a little downtime, a bottle of fine wine, and a good fucking book.

So between handing out WTF Awards, kicking it with Christians, and interviewing Ron Jeremy at Exxxotica Miami Beach 2011, Cultist asked five sex pros for their summer book picks.

See the cut for porn star-approved reading options that range from the religious to the scientific and beyond.

Ashlynn Leigh

Sticking with one of Planet Earth's most reliable bestsellers, Ashlynn Leigh suggests you pick up The Bible this summer. Aside from the Good Book, though, she's pretty much a magazine gal. So if you need a respite from the Word of God, Ashlynn says: "Go with Cosmo."

Upcoming Events

Joanna Angel

The sex game is a total time suck. So smut director, founder of BurningAngel.com, and print media aficionado Ms. Joanna Angel doesn't get to devour as many books as she'd like. "I really love to read. But unfortunately, this industry is very fast-paced and busy," she says, shaking her head. "The last book I read from beginning to end, though, was The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. It's about a race car driver who has an almost human dog."

Kristina Rose

It owns the Guinness World Record for most translated book by a living author. And it's also one of the best-selling novels in human history. But now, after years of procrastination, you've finally got a reason to read it 'cause Kristina Rose recommends Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist. "It teaches life lessons," she says. "It's very enlightening."

Superstar XXX

"My favorite author is Eric Jerome Dickey," Superstar says. "He's a fictional, romance, black novelist. I love him." And out of the entire Dickey oeuvre, Superstar suggests Milk in My Coffee most of all. "It's about a black guy fucking with a white girl," she explains. "It's sexy. They do a lot of fucking. It was a great book. I love it."

Indigo Augustine

You wouldn't expect a lot of adult film actresses to be amateur physicists. But you'd be dead fucking wrong. Just take Indigo Augustine, a fan of both supergenius Steven Hawking and Columbia physics prof Brian Greene. "I'm really big into theoretical and quantum physics," she says. So follow Indigo's example and get smarter this summer by snagging a copy of Hawking's Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays or Greene's Elegant Universe.
