New documentary, fine-art photography book examine the lives of porn stars

"Aroused" in theaters, on iTunes and Amazon

LOS ANGELES - Ever wonder what makes young, pretty, "good" girls pursue careers in porn?
 
So did Deborah Anderson, that's why she made a documentary and fine-art photography book on the subject. "Aroused" opens in select theaters Thursday and is available for download on iTunes. The book is available on Amazon.
 
Many of the 16 adult-film actresses featured in "Aroused" attended the film's premiere Wednesday night at the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles and hung around afterward to autograph the coffee-table book.
 
Anderson was inspired to explore these women's stories after casting a porn star in a photo shoot for a magazine. She was struck by the woman's warm personality and her stories of harsh treatment from the public despite contributing to a widely consumed product of a billion-dollar industry.
