Gram Ponante Writes eBook on Directorial Debut

LOS ANGELES—Adult industry writer Gram Ponante has released an eBook that covers his experience directing his first porn movie, The Facts of Life: A Porn Parody.

Coinciding with the release of his movie through DreamZone Entertainment, Ponante's 60-page book details his process of writing, casting and filming a porn movie.

"I didn't have the budget for anal," Ponante writes in his new ebook, A Porn Valley Odyssey: Making 'The Facts of Life XXX, "but that didn't stop me from directing The Greatest Porn Movie Ever Made."


The making-of book places the current porn parody craze in context.

Ponante was tutored by Lee Roy Myers, who also provided the novice director with a professional crew, including Paul Woodcrest, Seth's Beard, Chad Pole, Glenn Alfonso, Freddy Fingers and Hi-Fi Al.

Ponante wrote what he calls a "Terry Southern-esque" script  of the goings-on at Yeastland Academy and cast Kristina Rose, Ashli Orion, Raylene, Lee Bang, Ryan McLane, Kodi Gamble, Bobbi Brixton, Coffee Brown, Anthony Rosano and Rocco Reed, with a theme song by his band, Fogelfoot.

"I've been covering porn sets for years for great publications like AVN, Genesis, Hustler, Playboy and XBIZ," Ponante said, "and I knew that directing a porn movie took a particular genius of organization, compromise, and patience, if not a genius of artistic talent."

Ponante said that stepping into the director’s chair for the first time gave him a newfound appreciation for what it takes to make an adult film and the people who do it.

"Directing my own two-day wonder gave me an even greater appreciation of the men and women in porn who work for a living," Ponante says, "and who are able to siphon off a little bit of truth, beauty, and humor from the creampies."

A Porn Valley Odyssey: Making The Facts of Life XXX is available for $5.99 at and on Amazon's Kindle Shop.
