If Cats Are Aisles Apart, Can They Fight?

We admit it, we have far too much fun making fun of the media for our recently announced retirement to last (we suspect this is the only thing we’ll ever have in common with Michael Jordan). Our problem today arises from what appears to be a general lack of, well, knowledge on the part of The New York Post’s Sara Nelson. In writing about the so-called porn star catfight (please tell us she didn’t choose the headline, otherwise our estimation of her will drop a further notch), she seems to think that Jenna Jameson’s new book (How To Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale is going head-to-head with Candida Royalle’s new book (How to Tell a Naked Man What To Do. The former is an autobiography (or as close to one as is possible when a co-writer is used), the latter is, for all intents and purposes, a how-to manual. Probably these will appeal to different audiences.

What Nelson seems to be missing is Jameson’s other book: How To Have A XXX Sex Life — wherein specific advice is offered to those looking to recreate the magic they see in the movies. Though not really written by Jameson, it does seem to cover the same subject matter as Royalle’s (setting the stage, etc.). Probably this book appeals to the same audience as Naked Man.

Just to prove that we don’t go out of our way to nitpick, we’d like to point out that we didn’t even mention that the two books supposedly duking it out are being released more or less two months apart.
