Blackburn describes how the character of Coley took on a life of his own; how Lon, the intended star of the story wound up being a supporting character once he decided to use Coley in it; and how the story in this book would not have worked without the sex scenes.

Synopsis:
Jessica introduces her friend Kit to her new roommate, Coley. Kit can't believe the stories Jess tells about him. Hoping to "wean" Coley off boys, Jess suggests Kit take Coley for a drive. He relates the parking lot incident which led to him getting an offer to become a porn star. He meets millionaire Quincey Quarterman, who tells him he bought out the contract from his brother, and took care of Coley's trouble with the police. Coley agrees to star in Quincey's film, to be written & directed by Harry "Lance" Larue, an aging ex-matinee idol who seems to dislike everybody-- but takes a liking to Coley (as does just about everyone else who crosses his path). Kit decides to make it with Coley, thinking she can "teach" him a few things-- but they prove to be almost equally matched.

She moves into Quincey's mansion, and is bugged at how close Coley & Kit have become, even though she got them together in the first place. She tells Coley sex will not ruin their friendship, and so she finally joins the growing list of his lovers. Allan (Quincey's butler) tells Coley he can't get him out of his mind, and asks what's up with all these girls. Coley says nothing's as "cut and dried" as some like to think. Later, Coley has a foursome with Allan, Jess & Kit. Coley then relates to Quincey & the others the story of how he acquired "voodoo" powers.

Synopsis:
Coley dances for a group of Occult Researchers. Harry appears on a late-night talk show. Coley meets his co-star, Lon Ireland, and the two begin working on the film, while also developing a relationship. All the advance publicity attracts the attention of Rev. Swinborne, who begins calling Coley the embodiment of Satanic evil. Quincey reveals he sent a tape to Swinborne just to stir up more publicity. Harry hopes he isn't going too far, and Coley appears on another talk-show. Things get more complicated as Lon falls for Coley, Coley reveals he's in love with Harry, and Jessica, increasingly jealous, dumps Coley. One of Swinborne's people approaches Jessica with an offer to help her get Coley back (while "putting the fear of God into him"). Coley finds Police Chief Tanner taking pot shots at a stray dog, whom Coley manages to save-- and adopt.
