NEW YORK CITY – (July 14, 2004) – The Vivid Girls, the world’s most elite adult film stars, have written their own version of the tell-all book, How to Have a XXX Sex Life: The Ultimate Vivid Guide, which will be published Tuesday, July 20th by the ReganBooks division of HarperCollins. Alternating frankness with a playful tone, the adventurous actresses from the leading adult film studio use a blend of specific tutorial, real life anecdotes and erotic fantasy in the hardcover book.

Co-authored by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman the 352-page How to Have a XXX Sex Life: The Ultimate Vivid Guide will inspire men and women, singles and couples – anyone who wants to have better sex and healthier, more exciting and satisfying love lives.


Vivid Girls Savanna Samson and Sunrise Adams, along with other top Vivid contract stars like Jenna Jameson, Briana Banks, Mercedez, Tawny Roberts and Dasha, provide much of the narrative for the book. They demonstrate why they are at the forefront of an amazing phenomenon: the increasing acceptance and unabashed enjoyment of adult entertainment as a mainstream offering.


How to Have a XXX Sex Life: The Ultimate Vivid Guide is the single most comprehensive erotic guide a major publisher has ever dared touch, according to ReganBooks. It is more than just an instructional manual with a list of positions and techniques; it features a treasure-trove of red-hot tips on flirting, playful suggestions about foreplay, and in-depth discussion of the dos and don’ts of the most exotic sexual acts imaginable. Since the writers are the best in the world at what they do, the validity of the information is irrefutable. What makes it more fun is that the narrative is tied together by real-life adventures of the wildest, most passionate women on film.


It all begins with communication, says Jenna Jameson, who has been called the woman who “put the star in porn star” by Rolling Stone magazine. “It’s really important for a man to communicate with her, to ask what technique she likes,” Jenna tells readers. “There are so many ways to do it, and every girl is different.”


According to Savanna Samson, who won the AVN Award for Best Actress in a Film in 2004, “fantasies are healthy…a lot of my fantasies have a lot to do with stuff I have done on camera first that I would like to re-enact and experience in my real life. My mind continues to open and I am so much more free than I ever was.”


“The best part of being a porn star is that it is totally positive in its own way,” writes Sunrise Adams (her Vivid film Heart of Darkness won the AVN Award for Best Film in 2004). “I like knowing that I’m fulfilling people’s fantasies and desires, maybe even helping their own romantic relationships.” 


Watching adult films is itself an educational experience, according to Mercedez. “You know the guys who are going to be the worst in bed are the ones who have perfect hair and perfect tans,” she writes. “I’d much rather go with a regular guy, especially one who says ‘I watch porn all the time.’ Those are the guys I want to take home. You know they will be open to trying stuff.”
