Sasha Grey — it’s all about The P.S.E. in The G.F.E.

Sasha Grey gloryhole movies

Last night I was flipping through the pay-per-view movies on Time Warner Cable with a pal o’ mine who was over for a slumber party.

“The Dark Knight?” I asked.

“No,” she said. “I’ve already seen it.”

“Me too.” I scanned the menu more. “Slumdog?”

“Seen it.” Then she said, “I wanna watch Milk! Or The Wrestler!!”

“Seen ’em both,” I said. Then I saw something surprising. Most of the pay-pers cost $3.99, but they had one that was $9.99. Why? It hasn’t been released yet. It’s a premium sneak preview thing…see the movie before it even hits the theaters.

And the movie? The Girlfriend Experience starring Sasha Grey.

We looked at each other, and without saying a word, I shelled out the 10 clams.

10 doll hairs.

10 scheckles.

You get the idea.

I’ve always sat on the sideline when it comes to Sasha Grey.

I interviewed her once.

We took a trip to the gloryhole.

For her 19th birthday, I got Sasha some Big Black Dick.

After all that, I’m still not sure what to make of her.

Some of my friends had no problem stating how they felt about her: the first time I strolled into Adrianna Nicole’s apartment, she had a heavy bag handing from the ceiling, and right where you’d punch the shit out of it the words “Sasha Grey” were scrawled in white letters.

Time to take my stance! Here’s my official take on Sasha Grey: either she’s a genius, or she’s got quite a library of the “For Dummies” titles.

Existentialism For Dummies.

Surrealism For Dummies.

Jean-Luc Godard For Dummies.

That sort of thing.

Really, I want to believe Sasha is the genuine smarty-pants she comes off as. Really, I do. And I have no reason to believe otherwise.

So how come I feel there’s something fraudulent about her?

You probably know this, but whore mongers (AKA “hobbyists”) are always on the hunt for G.F.E. (girlfriend experience) when they’re buying their whore. G.F.E. is exactly that: share a glass of wine and some conversation as she rubs the tension of a long day’s work from your shoulders before a bubble bath and some french kissing and a round of passionate lovemaking.

To me, G.F.E. never made sense. If I’m gonna splurge on a whore, then come piss in my mouth, bitch, right after you tell me I can never please you in the sack. Spank me, make fun of me, fuck me, blow me…but for God’s sake don’t fucking close your eyes and make out with me.

Which is to say the last fucking thing I want from my whore is a girlfriend.

Some hobbyists prefer P.S.E. — “porn star experience” — which is a little more to my liking…if I’m buying a whore.

How did I get off on this tangent?

I was pulling for Sasha and The Girlfriend Experience the second the movie started. I really wanted to see Sasha transcend porn to The Big Time. I really wanted to like the movie, too. Who knows…you might like it. I mean I didn’t hate it…but it wasn’t very good.

The Girlfriend Experience was mediocre at best. I won’t give anything away, in case you do see it…except to say the most powerful part of the movie is the closing few minutes, when Sasha meets her Jewish, diamond-and-gold peddlin’ client.

If only the rest of the movie had 1/10th of the power that scene delivered.

Give Sasha the credit she deserves: she came to LA with a goal she achieved. That says a lot. But, as the credits rolled, I wondered why Soderbergh even cast Sasha? (I found my answer here after writing this). Was he going for authenticity? Cause if that’s the case, Porn Stars and Escorts ain’t even close to being the same Bird. Even though some of them are the same Bird.

I’m not out to shit talk Sasha Grey, but really, The Girlfriend Experience is poor.

Sasha Grey = Traci Lords = Nina Hartley = Katie Morgan.

Or, maybe it’s best to say Sasha’s mainstream acting ability lacks any sort of range…take a look at the pic I posted, and that pretty much sums up Sasha’s big screen acting debut.

It pretty much sums up the movie, too.

Oh well…at least I didn’t have to deal with traffic on Sunset to get to the Arc Light, then pay to park, and then shell out another sawski or two for popcorn.

  1. Hmm, The Girlfriend Experience.. “a movie about a high-end Manhattan call-girl…”. First question: who plays Eliot Spitzer? By the way, a few months ago, when I mentioned that the Dark Knight should have won best picture at the Oscars, you claimed you’d never seen it. Now you’re saying you have? Also, Billy, I don’t think anyone’s reading your blog anymore. The last 10 odd entries have had no comments at all. Bring back the good old posts – showing us previews of upcoming BonB scenes, behind the scenes stories & pictures, and so forth. I don’t visit a porn blog to read about politics.

  2. Oh Bill!

    I can’t believe there is even a debate! Of course Sasha Grey is a fraud. All porn is fraudulent. No one “acting” in porn is actually enjoying themselves, or doing it because that is what they want to do, so of course they are faking it, which everyone knows. So, if Sasha Grey fakes a lot more than just the part about really loving being throat fucked by several black men, one after the other, then why shoudln’t she fake the part about having read lots of books with big words in them? What’s the big deal?

    And you say she can’t act? Well, whose fault is that? You are the one who tells all the new talent to look straight into the camera all the time. That is just about the one rule a decent film actor never breaks, and it is the one thing you claim to have brought to the “genre”.

    The fact is, Sasha Grey is hot. She looks great and makes every man who sees her on tape want to be the man on tape with her. No wonder some other porn girl puts pins in her likeness at home. For all her qualities, compared to Sasha Grey, Adrianna Nicole is fat and ugly. She hates her because she is not as hot as Sasha. No mystery there.

    Why did Soderbergh put her in his film? Cause he wants to fuck her. And so does every man who shells out ten clams to watch his shitty film where the actress looks into the camera all the time and looks like she is trying not to smile(the fault of one of her early directors).

    Hate, hate, hate

  3. Billy:

    I am glad that someone from inside the industry finely decided to comment on this chick. You really can’t hate on some one with a plan. But the way she has been inching her way over to mainstream media kind of reminds me of Madonna….(with at the porn…but heavy on the whoring.
