LOS ANGELES — Joanna Angel is bringing her writing talents to the pages of Men’s Health Magazine as guest contributor.
In her newest column for the magazine, the adult performer/director, author and entrepreneur explores sex and sexuality from her unique perspective, offering up unique commentary.
“Exercising my writing chops in these new outlets has been a wonderful experience,” Angel said. “Whether I’m working on an advice column, a Top 10 list, a novel, or a two-page script that leads to strangers boning, I put my heart into it all. Writing is, after all what I went to school for once upon a time.”
Angel’s first article, “The 17 Best Movie Sex Scenes, According to a Porn Star and Director,” highlights the star’s favorite erotic moments in films such as “Mulholland Drive” (“the sex scene is beautiful and incredibly romantic”) and “Boogie Nights” (“it’s one of the few instances where a movie shows a woman in porn not as a victim, but as a sexually-empowered woman who has a lot of fun doing her job”).
Her counterpoint piece, "The 13 Worst Movie Sex Scenes of All Time" conveys a big "meh" to the sex scenes in movies like "Secretary" (“I'm not a fan of the spanking scene… there’s a certain finesse that goes into the proper BDSM thwack, and [James] Spader's form was stiff, like he was hammering a nail into a wall”).
Angel has written for other outlets, including a sex advice column for Spin Magazine - and the star recently wrote, released and received critical and fan acclaim for her new fiction novel, “Night Shift: A Choose-Your-Own Erotic Fantasy.”
“Writing is a comforting creative outlet for me, and I am thankful to Men’s Health for letting me write about what I know best and have fun with it,” Angel said. “I like sharing my opinion about what makes me happy and what inspires me, which is great sex.”
