Sasha Grey, born Marina Ann Hantzis in 1988 in Sacramento, California, adult film star and performance artist, is to release a monograph NEU SEX this late March. Grey has had her hand, physically and figuratively, in more than just pornography, including photography, writing, and music.  According to her agents, the Agency Group Ltd, "[Grey] has a strong interest in the films of the French new wave and as such before deciding on her present stage name she was toying with the name of Jean-Luc Godard's ex-wife Ann Karina. In interviews she has stated that the name Grey represents two things Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Grey and probably most important the Kinsey scale of sexuality; homosexual to heterosexual, a grey scale in-between."  According to Grey,  documenting herself "became a necessity" if only to take back a little more creative control.  NEU SEX will drop March 29, 2011, from Vice Books.
