Absolute Mayhem

Confessions Of An Aussie Porn Star




How a girl from Brisbane became one of porn’s biggest stars

How a girl from Brisbane became one of porn’s biggest stars

'Do you really want to know what it's like to be a porn star? Brace yourself, because I'm not going to pull any punches. Here's what a "busy day at the office" might mean for me . . .' So begins the no-holds-barred autobiography of Brisbane-born Monica Mayhem - a porn star and proud of it.

In her funny and disarmingly candid voice, she reveals the ins and outs of making it big in Los Angeles, the pornography capital of the world. Just how did a girl who was taunted at school because her eyes were 'too big', and who carved out a respectable career for herself in the financial markets of Sydney and London, go on to make over 400 hardcore adult movies win numerous industry awards and even land herself a role in the first Sex & The City movie?

Absolute Mayhem lifts the lid on the sex, rock and mayhem of Monica's truly extraordinary professional life - and unveils the private person behind it all.
