Various media have mentioned a “mutual
involvement with an adult film star” – is this book really just about a fight over a girl?
“When women go wrong, men go right after them.” –Mae West
There was a broken person at the center of our friendship that we both had feelings for. Like most men, for a long time I thought I had to rescue women. But being the white knight is exhausting, and my armor has been put away for some time. Because I was raised by my mother I have a great respect for women, and respect for women and pornography do not go hand in hand, in my opinion. In this case the woman in question was a vision of lust for many men, but our involvement with her was not the basis of the book.
When I originally set out to do this book there was a lot of malice in my heart, but one of the most important lessons I learned while doing the project was forgiveness. It’s funny because if you watch my Twitter feed you will occasionally see a big name adult film star “chime in.” This is a world I would barely know if not for Michael, but I think because I pride myself on meeting people as who they are, not who they were, I have lots of friends from different walks of life.
