With her first erotic novel, out in Brazil this week, US ex-porn star Sasha Grey says she aims to forge a new path in literature while promoting women’s self-empowerment.

The 25-year-old was mobbed by 1 000 fans Wednesday at a launch in Sao Paulo for The Juliette Society, — a book she hopes will emulate the success of 50 Shades of Grey, the 2011 erotic romance novel by British author E.L James.

20th Century Fox has already bought the rights to turn the book into a movie.

The novel, already out in the United States and soon to be published in 40 countries, tells the story of Catherine, a seductive film student who discovers her sexuality in a club frequented by some of the world’s most powerful people.

In the club, bankers, media barons, arms traffickers, decorated military officers and even high members of the Catholic clergy mingle to relax and satisfy their deepest and kinkiest sexual fantasies.

“Catherine enjoys being sexually dominated, but she knows how to take control and have the power,” said Grey, a round-faced Californian whose real name is Marina Ann Hantzis.

“Like Catherine, I was a young woman with a lot of sexual fantasies,” she added, arguing that the written word offers “a lot more creative freedom” than pornographic films.

Asked her views on feminism, the former pornstar told AFP: “I consider myself a self-empowered woman.
