Within a short time on the scene, he was something of a celebrity in his field, having been introduced to wealthy, weird, and wonderful eccentrics and famous—and famously closeted—eurotrash personalities and the celebrated elite. However, working as a prostitute turned minor league once gay adult film legend Chi Chi La Rue took Polaroids of the naked and aroused Shaw and launched his career. The rest is history, as is documented in more than fifty films that won him numerous honors.

Adult film superstar Aiden Shaw has been long admired for his physical attributes, but for anyone who hasn't discovered his literary endeavours, he's a splendid writer, as well. His recently published "Sordid Truths, Selling My Innocence for a Taste of Stardom" is a prequel to his 2006 autobiography ("My Undoing, Love in the Thick of Sex, Drugs, Pornography, and Prostitution") which detailed his life in the adult film industry. "Sordid Truths" takes the reader from 1997 San Francisco, where the sex- and drug-addled author is besieged at a local "town meeting", back to his first job as a rentboy in 1980's Brighton, and then moves forward again through time, charting, with startling honesty, his ascendance as a well-paid sex worker in London, and culminating with his life-changing meeting with porn impresario, Chi Chi Larue. In between, Mr. Shaw falls in love, has lots and lots of sex, abuses various drugs, hobnobs with movers and shakers, suffers the betrayals of friends and the deaths of loved ones, and still manages to emerge with a certain sense of honor. In fact, it is through his interactions with many of his clients--the punters--that Mr. Shaw's humanity is best illuminated. His empathy with these men is conveyed in scenes of such wit, pain, and authenticity that his notoriety dissolves, and a certain generosity of spirit, elemental truth and unexpected kindness, emerges. As a sex worker, the young Shaw is engaging and eager to please but he's also empathetic, and I think that's largely a key to his success in the business.

The book itself is simply and beautifully written, with attention to detail evoking such pleasures as Sticky Toffee Pudding and the velvety texture of downy flesh.
Mr. Shaw has imbued his story with enough juicy details of his life in the sex industry to keep things interesting, and he's included personal anecdotes of his love life as well. I was touched by his insecurities regarding potential boyfriends--his uncertainty is refreshing, and anything but jaded--, and impressed by his refusal to portray himself as being anything more or less than the person he is. By the end of the book, I felt that this is a man who is as lovely on the inside as he is on the outside, and one who lives his life on his own terms.

Highly recommended!

Mr. Shaw has written yet another fantastic book with pure honesty, rawness, and REALNESS. I read this book in one sitting. He holds nothing back. Props to him.

This book is an eye opener in describing the daily lives of sex workers. I am amazed that these beautiful people abuse their bodies to the extent they do and remain physically attractive for even the short run. The quantity of drug use, long nights, fast living, and so on is mind boggling.

The book is a good read but certainly not great literature. More like a diary, it gives us a close look at a fascinating way of life.

MEMOIR | Hopefully you know who Aiden Shaw is by the "Sex and the City" reference alone. However, in case you are too young or too prude to know, Mr. Shaw was one of the highest, if not the highest paid gay porn star in history.

British born, he made his way through the California porn industry with his rugged good looks and one of the largest dicks in the industry. Today, retired and HIV positive, Shaw has turned his attention to other pursuits. To date he has written 3 novels, 2 biographies, (one of which became a best-seller), 2 books of poetry, produced and written 2 albums, and managed to get a masters in Creative and Life Writing.

His newest book, "Sordid Truths," tells the story leading up to where his first biography "My Undoing: Love in the Thick of Sex, Drugs, Pornography, and Prostitution," begins. Starting with his first trick, the story documents Aiden's journey of going from a college dropout, to prostitute, to drug dealer, and eventually porn star.

One cannot help being a little cynical when picking up any book by a porn star (yes, there are many). Despite many of us believing we are open minded and liberal, many still believe deep down that porn stars are just uneducated meth-heads whose parents never loved them--and at first "Sordid Truths" reads as much. Alternating between graphic, blush-worthy sex scenes and long-winded monologues, Aiden attempts to show us how despite being a whore he is also smart, witty, and maybe a little deep.

Yet by the end of the book you find yourself caring about what happens to Aiden next. You feel for him and begin seeing similar traits of yourself and people you know in him. The real sordid truth is, deep down he is just like any of us. Despite having a beautiful body, an amazing cock, and money out the ying-yang he is horribly insecure. He wants us to know that he is more than a sex machine or a whore and that the path he walked down could have been chosen by anyone of us. As corny as it sounds, at the end of the day he just wants to be loved. While not a piece of award winning literature "Sordid Truths" in the end, is a thoughtful, sexy book, that will heat up any a cold night.
