LOS ANGELES — Veteran adult industry writer Gram Ponante has completed a book about his experience directing his first porn movie.
Titled "A Porn Valley Odyssey: Making 'The Facts of Life XXX,'" the book is delivered as a 60-page PDF with a password to an exclusive on-the-set gallery and original music.
In the book, Ponante chronicles the trials and tribulations of helming the parody, which was shot in November 2010 and is scheduled for release this spring.
"I worked within a rigid and exacting process codified and maintained by an establishment every bit as entrenched and exclusive as its nearest counterpart over the hill in Hollywood," he writes in his introduction. "I had followed Porn Valley's rules, and produced a Thing of Beauty; a pornic adaptation of the 1980's sitcom 'The Facts of Life.'"
Ponante, who has written about adult since 2002, maintains a regular blog themed Porn Valley Observed at GramPonante.com. In addition he is a regular contributor to Fleshbot, Hustler and Genesis.
