Onetime porn star Farrah Abraham and adult-film legend Sasha Grey both believe they are better at writing erotica than “Fifty Shades of Grey” author E.L. James, according to several reports.
Abraham, who gained notoriety after appearing on MTV’s “16 and Pregnant,” is apparently working on a novel that she thinks will outsell the famous “love story with a kink,” Enstarz wrote. The 22-year-old reality-television personality told the site that “‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is gonna have their money,” but probably meant her novel is “going to give it a run for their money.”
Grey, the XXX-rated star who gained notoriety after she appeared in 271 movies before she retired at 23, has also penned her own erotic novel and told celebrity-news site TMZ that hers is way better than James’ best-selling series. The 25-year-old beauty, who has won at least a dozen awards for her work as an adult-film star, went on to contend that James doesn’t have any significant experience when it comes to sex and that she, as a former porn star, is more qualified to write about it.
When Grey was asked by TMZ whether her book is better than James’ novel, she replied, “You’ll have to read it.” Then, she added: “I think it’s a different book. It’s erotic, not a romance."
Grey also confidently answered, “Hell yes,” when questioned whether she was experienced enough to write on this topic. As far as making $95 million the way James did, she said she has “every hope” she’ll be able to bring in that type of money.
