Jenna Chides Library over Book Ban

(SCOTTSDALE, AZ) -- Adult superstar Jenna Jameson says it is "ridiculous" that the Houston Public Library has bowed to pressure from the mayor and banned her autobiography.

Last month the library ordered its twelve copies of "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale" removed from circulation after a complaint about nude photos in the book, published by HarperCollins, a company owned by Rupert Murdoch and his News America Corp. The complaint made its way first to a city council member, prompting Mayor Bill White to demand that it be banned.

"I think it is ridiculous and dangerous for a politician to dictate what kinds of books a public library should or should not have on its shelves," said Ms. Jameson. "The selection of books should be solely up to the library director, not a mayor who is acting with political motivation. What's even more weird is that the original complaint came from a councilwoman named Pam Horn, who admits she never even read the book. A library spokesman told the Houston Chronicle that there was a waiting list for all 12 copies of the book owned by the library, so it was never even a question of being on display."

"If they are worried about whether kids are going to get hold of my book, the library director and Mayor White ought to take a cue from President Bush, who told C-Span the other day that 'we are a great society because we're a free society' but that it is up to parents to monitor what their kids are watching and reading."

Ms. Jameson noted that her book contains very little sex and that the photos in it are no more revealing than the photos found in many other books and periodicals routinely available in public libraries nationwide.

"Since the Houston library system has banned my book, we are offering a special 20% discount to fans in Houston who purchase it through my ClubJennaMall.com website," said Ms. Jameson. "They just need to go to the site and select the "Contact Us" button and send us an email with their name, phone and address. We'll personally contact the reader to complete the transaction."

Co-authored with former New York Times reporter Neil Strauss, the book was on the New York Times bestseller list for much of the summer and remains one of the top selling books on Amazon.com. It is a frank and candid look back on a series of life choices that Ms. Jameson made as she came to dominate the adult film industry.
