Sex Lives - Netflix
Sex Lives begins with an American Idol type audition process and ultimately follows the 6 selected female participants through a variety of daily challenges and nights out in South Beach. Half of the women chosen are aspiring fashion models, while the other half are aspiring adult actresses. Thus the house is broken into two competing groups, Team Models and Team Pornstars. Each morning the Sex Lives mailman delivers the day's erotic activity, which the teams compete in for a variety of rewards. Similar to The Real World, a confession booth is available for the roommates to vent and express their true feelings. The show features three porn stars as Team Pornstars and those three stars include Brooke Banner, Morgan Dayne, and Britney Blew.
Runtime: 30 minutes
Sex Lives - Full Service (book) - Netflix
Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars is a “tell all” book about the sex lives of Hollywood stars from the late 1940s to the early 1980s by Scotty Bowers, with Lionel Friedberg as a contributing author. Bowers makes many claims about the sex lives of many people, most of whom were associated with the Hollywood movie industry during that period. The book, which was vetted by a libel lawyer before publication, was refused by several publishers before ultimately being accepted by Grove Press and Grove/Atlantic. Matt Tyrnauer, director of Valentino: The Last Emperor, is currently in production on a documentary film about Bowers's life.

Adam Tschorn, writing for the Los Angeles Times, described the book as having an uneven, at times choppy, pace and much purple prose, highlighting a passage in which Bowers describes how he milked a cow. Although he considered some of the details too much for the general reader, he wrote that the book was “a good trashy read”. Matt Tyrnauer, a writer for Vanity Fair, described Bowers as “like the Kinsey Reports live and in living color”, if the reader believed him. Joanna Walters, in The Guardian, wrote that the book was a “titillating catalogue of sexual intrigue.”
