As the title suggests, portraits of noted adult film performers, both male and female. Each subject is featured in two images — one clothed, the other not — on facing pages, with the question of which is the more revealing left unresolved. Introduction by Gore Vidal; essays and commentary by assorted other luminaries including Lou Reed, John Malkovich, John Waters, Nina Hartley, A.M. Homes, and others. Followed by short biographies of photo subjects and contributors.
