How to make love like a pornstar

Swingland = mildly entertaining although could have been better

Girlvert - this is very graphic about what was going on.

What are your recommendations for a trash read. Something that you really shouldn't but when you start you just can't put it down. Having been reading some heavy material recently being able to switch off and read trash like this is a relief.

So what makes your trash reading list?

Only one I've read had the cover torn off so that it could hidden from parents. I can only recall a lady a pot of fish paste and a cat. The rest may come back during therapy. If it helps the book was pink and some of the pages were stuck together.

Clive Cussler's crap. Some of it is real shite and even I have to draw the line somewhere. But I've enjoyed the Isaac Bell series, and many of the Dirk Pitt ones (except for the one where he disguises himself as a 70s gay stereotype - that is toe curlingly bad). Have to admire a guy who writes bestselling books featuring cameos of himself and doesn't get those sequences struck out by an angry English teacher.

Fans complain about the film adaptations like Sahara and Raise the Titanic, but believe me they make the books look good.

That's what I was thinking when I saw the word "trash", IRRO's definition seems a bit more, um, adult.

The Dirk Pitt books are great fun if wildly silly. The last I read was about finding a medieval ship with a sercet book in a desert whilst the NUMA head honcho singlehandedly rescued a captive from a mass terrorist camp, throughly enjoyed it.

Some people at work are into a "Lost in Space" series. This sounded great, a bit like Blakes Seven but way more complex and different series giving you the same events but from other participants' perspectives.

This is a great idea, I'd love to read (say) Saruman's story from Lord of the Rings, or how Sauron recovered from defeat and built his power again despite not actually exisiting physically.

I just find it an easy read. Finished Girlvert and I have to say it should be on the reading list for all 15 year olds, they would then realise that porn sex isn't "normal" sex. It's a brutal read and she was on cocaine for her entire porn career.

I've now moved on to this Sinner Takes All: A Memoir of Love and Porn by Tera Patrick.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nineteen-Stars-Military-Character-Leadership/dp/0891411488 19 Stars.

Although I'm also reading this as well which certainly isn't a "trash read".

Does 50 Shades of Grey deserve a mention?

Haven't read it myself. It was featured on Room 101 and I heard excerpts. I don't think it's one for me.

Believe it was picked to go into Room 101.

How on earth did Clive Cussler become a best selling author? I think I've read two of his, one was about a secret undersea lair where mutant people with gills based themselves prior to hijacking ships.

Made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

My favourite trash reads are Wilbur Smith. Especially the historical fiction ones set in Africa. Men of Men is outrageously good, so good in fact it's verging on something beyond a trash read IMO.

'Raise The Titanic' was the big one, I believe. High concept and easy to market. Wasn't it also responsible for the movie that bankrupt Lew Grade?

Otherwise, he's successful for the same reason Dan Brown is; he is (or was, at his peak in the 80s) able to set up a good mystery and keep readers turning the page to the end. I re-read one of his early books recently, and it was completely wacko but still good fun.

That's a bad read rather than a trash read. I tried reading it as well as flicking through it for, um, research but it was very disappointing on both counts.

Trash reads are meant to be fun, I even enjoyed the film of Dan Brown's Angels and Demons as it was done in the same tongue-in-cheek way.
