Jenna Jameson
PAGE 3
Jenna didn't grow up dreaming of becoming a porn star. In fact, she says she always imagined having a career like Oprah's. "I always felt like I needed to be in front of an audience, and I wanted to touch people's lives," she says. "You know, I may be touching them in a different way."

As a young starlet in the adult film industry, Jenna says she set high standards and stuck to them throughout her career. "I wanted to be the number one porn star in the world, and I wanted to do it with dignity," she says. "I wanted to change things because this industry was run by men."

While filming explicit sex scenes, Jenna says she called the shots. "I really didn't understand how women could do something so incredibly personal and not be serious about it and say: 'Listen, I am not going to have sex with more than one man in a scene. I'm not going to do it in the back,'" she says. "I changed the industry for up-and-coming starlets."
