About Asarotica: “What do porn stars find erotic?” is a question that has baffled the minds of adult film fans for decades. Thanks to adult film star and best-selling author of Insatiable and Dirty Thirty, Asa Akira, we finally get our answer—everything!

No one knows the world of sex and eroticism better than those in “the industry.” They’ve seen and done it all, from the weirdest fetishes to the most extreme positions, and now in this hot, new erotic collection they are going to test our own sexual repertoire. Asarotica features twenty-two erotic short stories by some of your favorite porn stars: Joanna Angel, Kayden Kross, Nina Hartley, and Asa Akira herself, among others.

Original, authentic, eye opening, and arousing, Asarotica guarantees to “get you there,” and to inspire a whole new generation to seek out unexpected pleasures…in books or in the bedroom.
