Talking Porn With Grandma

Last weekend I attended a beautiful wedding in Vermont with a gaggle of relative strangers. The weather was perfect, the occasion joyous, and as we drove through farmhouse dotted fields on our way there, I briefly considered inventing a new identity. I usually have this fleeting delusion when faced with a weekend of small talk—that is, even when not working on a book about porn. And in fact, I will admit that I have invented an alias or two back in my bar hopping days with disastrous results. Alternatively, my friend B and I decided that when faced with the, “how are things?” question, we would cut to the chase and respond that he recently endured a grueling divorce and I was writing about porn. Full conversation stop. We arrived to the Friday rehearsal dinner where thanks to my husband’s shameless wife-promotion I was greeted time and time again with, “Oh yes, you’re the one who writes about your husband filming porn.” They beat me to it.

Now, with a blog called I Married a Pornographer that is to be expected. But somehow through word of mouth the fact that Robbie filmed a reality TV Show about porn stars has morphed into the two of us producing School of Cock. I realized quickly by some odd looks and tentative questions that we were the “LA porn couple.” Our new persona completed by accidental rosy sunburns and pastel outfits. While being rather pro-porn these days, I don’t particularly mind this misinterpretation, but it does make for some interesting chitchat with Mr. and Mrs. so-and-so who knew my suspender-wearing, pubescent hubby. Needless to say, I moved straight to the vodka and made away with a slight hangover and my one-minute pitch perfected, which, of course, is the plus side. That, and hoping the bride’s Grandma will now read my blog.
