LA Weekly Devotes Cover Story of New Issue to Sasha Grey

LOS ANGELES—For anybody outside of adult (but inside Los Angeles) unfamiliar with the name Sasha Grey, the new issue of LA Weekly, out today, should fill in that blank in their cultural vocabulary. Splashed across the cover of the issue is a greyscale headshot of the 2008 AVN Female Performer of the Year, flashing her trademark smirk, below which streaks the headline of the accompanying feature inside by Art Tavana: "Who Is Sasha Grey? My Day With L.A.'s Most Misunderstood Sex Symbol." While the story gives little ink to her porn past, it does credit Grey with having "redefined porn's appeal in the mid- to late aughts" and "helped usher in the wave of BDSM-positive books and films, like the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise." (Uh ... thanks, Sasha?) For the most part, the piece covers Grey's ventures as a novelist (she recently completed the sequel to her 2013 erotic novel The Juliette Society) and a DJ (she's touring North and South America this summer and documenting it in VR) ... as well as her ongoing suffering from a chronic sinus inflammation. Ruminating on her influence on the global zeitgeist, Grey at one point muses, "To see some of my choices reflected in the culture around me was really mind-bending. As far as a legacy, this was something that was hard for me to judge or realize until 2013, when I was on tour most of the year. From Brazil to Russia I met young people that I inspired to take chances and understand their own worth; it was the first time I felt like I had a responsibility to my audience." Asked for her take on the mega-profile story, Grey joked to AVN, "Who is Sasha Grey anyway? I'm glad they wrote this story because maybe I'll find out." Read the entire feature here or pick up a copy of the issue wherever LA Weekly is distributed.
