Could porn star turned novelist Sasha Grey be next EL James?

London, May 05 (ANI): Ever since EL James’s Fifty Shades of Grey shifted 40 million copies around the world last year, publishers have desperately required a successor, another sex-riddled bestseller to tempt us into illicit blushes.

Into this breach now steps the latest hopeful, former porn superstar Sasha Grey, whose direct-to-DVD movies include ‘I Wanna Bang Your Sister’ and ‘Buttman’s Stretch Class 2,’ the Independent reported.

The 25-year-old has reinvented herself as a novelist with her first book, ‘The Juliette Society’, which is at least theoretically Fifty Shades’ successor, as it too explores the mostly unspoken world of bondage, discipline and sado-masochism.

The book revolves around a woman’s introduction to a highly secretive sex k club.

It will be published in 20 territories around the world, and Hollywood has already snapped up the film rights.

It was Grey’s agent who first suggested her to write a book, back in 2008.

Many of her fans agreed, but it was only when James’s erotic trilogy breathed new life into a very old art form that she decided to give it a go.

Grey told the publication that she wanted to create characters in a world that felt grounded within the fantasy world, but she didn’t want a cliche woman looking for Mr Right.

She says that sex is not always fun, but she didn’t want to write about this dark side from a negative point of view and instead, she wanted to explore it.

She also wanted, by her own admission, to cash in on a potential cash cow.

Grey retired from the porn industry four years ago, and has since dabbled in acting, and written a succession of screenplays that haven’t been picked up.

But with the novel she has already made more money in publishing deals than she did as an actress.

Though Grey purports first and foremost to be a film fanatic, her failure in this to date has made her success at fiction all the sweeter.

“You’d think an educated woman might have more profound things to spend her time thinking about than the most satisfying way to articulate ejaculate,” she writes at one point.

“I’m not so sure about that… The big bang created a universal body made up of solar systems – giant wombs, incubators for the planets, which are cosmic eggs waiting to be fertilised with the seed of life, which is: come. And that, in essence, is my sexual theory of life, the universe and everything,” she writes.

Grey, who is at her rented Paris apartment, is working through last-minute edits on the book and DJing in nightclubs around the city. (ANI)
