Sasha Grey ‘The Girlfriend Experience’: Steve Soderbergh Directs Best Adult Female Performer Winner

The Girlfriend Experience Steven Soderbergh
Sasha Grey stars in The Girlfriend Experience, directed by Steven Soderbergh.

Set at the time of the 2008 US presidential elections, The Girlfriend Experience follows Manhattan escort Chelsea (21-year-old Sasha Grey, voted best female performer in XXX films last year), a savvy businesswoman who offers the “girlfriend experience” to her clients: dinner and movie dates, chats, sex – and even that most indecent of habits, kissing.

Sounds like fun? Perhaps it is, but then there’s both the boyfriend (Chris Santos) and a special writer (Philip Eytan) from Los Angeles.

Sounds decadent? Well, that’s nothing compared to the free fall of the global economy thanks to the (truly) obscene behavior of bankers and their politician-whores.

While the world financial markets crumble, Chelsea gets laid – and ponders about how to best invest in her future.

Written by David Levien and Brian Koppelman, and directed by Steven Soderbergh, The Girlfriend Experience opens in UK cinemas on Dec. 4.

A curiosity: According to the film’s press release, Sasha Grey’s last name “represents two things: Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Grey and the Kinsey scale of sexuality (homosexual to heterosexual, a grey scale in-between).”

Also in the Girlfriend Experience cast: T. Colby Trane and Peter Zizzo.

I think this film will definately be interesting. I’ve always thought adult film stars were basically just regular actors without all the luck.
