Steven Soderbergh is an Academy Award Winning director of such films as Sex Lies and Videotape, Traffic, Erin Brockovich & The Oceans 11 franchise. His latest film, The Girlfriend Experience is a film about a $2,000 an hour call who juggles a boyfriend and the demands of her profession.
The film stars Porn Actress Sasha Grey in the lead. As far as I can tell this is the first major mainstream release of a movie with a Porn Star as the lead, or at least a Porn Star who still works in Porn. I don’t know if you think it’s significant but I think it definitely reflects a change in the way the mainstream now more readily accepts people in the adult industry.
While the movie does have a Porn Star as the lead it is said to have very little nudity and no sex.
In case your a porn junkie like me here’s some links to Sasha Grey’s work.
