The Devil Made Me Do It

eBook (PDF), 302 Pages
(5 Ratings)
Price: $6.49
A rollicking, ribald, account of the making of Gerard Damiano’s 1974 sexually explicit film, The Devil in Miss Jones, is followed by a fast-paced, humorous look at the rest of her life by the film’s star, Georgina Spelvin. “I honestly never thought anyone I knew would ever see the thing!” she wailed when the film’s box-office success threw her into an unexpected and uncomfortable spotlight. Ironically, a spotlight was exactly what she had come to New York to find as a young dancer from Texas in 1954. She did find it, briefly, in the original Broadway production of The Pajama Game. Twenty years later, it glared unrelentingly on what she now describes as her “dubious achievement award.” Demons – including “Demon Rum” – are met and dealt with. Ultimately, it is a love letter to her mother.

    "From I love Georgina and her fantastic new book, July 2, 2008" "The Devil..." is heavenly! I'm so thrilled to finally get to read about the life of this amazing, wonderful, sex Goddess and performer. She inspired me greatly, and changed my life forever for the better when I saw her for the first time in the Devil and Miss Jones. Georgina Spelvin has always been in a class by herself, and her book reflects that, because it is too. She generously gives readers a great feel (pun intended) for the Golden Age of porn, and what life and sexuality was like in the 60's/70's for the sexually liberated and talented. This book is also very relevant for today's world. I've read and enjoyed many sex worker autobiographies, and this is certainly one of the best--and perhaps the most sincere and from the heart of them all. Well written too! -Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D.--Huge Georgina Spelvin admirer. Porn star turned artist/sexologist.
