Roxana Shirazi

"The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage"

New York Daily News: Roxana Shirazi engaged in some risky sex while hanging with rock's raunchiest hair bands. But the unrepentant groupie is courting bigger danger with her memoir, "The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage." Shirazi says several editors and agents passed on her manuscript for fear of a fatwa - the Islamic death sentence that once put "Satanic Verses" author Salman Rushdie in fear of his life. But her two champions, authors Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, finally persuaded HarperCollins to publish it under the new Igniter imprint. It's not hard to see what might incite the mullahs in Tehran, where Shirazi lived until she was 10. "I haven't attacked Islam itself," she tells us. "But they probably don't think I should be writing about doing sex during my Koran classes >>>

Mullahs don't give rat's ass about what she did with her vagina

by Rominajan on

Cheghadr shomaha Khareen....Do you think the Mullahs of Iran give a damn about what she did with her vagina? They are probably saying to themselves; "Too bad we didn't get the chance to have sex with her?"

They don't care, I think she is insulting the Persian culture and disrespecting Islam by wearing hijab and at the same showing her body.

I am reading her book now and is daring...

by Sheila K on

and is not for the faint of heart. I hardly believe that her experience with Rock'n Rollers was merely a Master's degree research or experiment. She was horribly abused as a child and I find her story too close to home. For an Iranian, and an Iranian woman, I find her extremely courageous, truthful, and unapologetic. 


If you do a quick Google search

by Sabzi_Polo on

and read any of her interviews, you will see that she was working on her Master's degree when she was out meeting rock n' rollers. She didn't write a tell-all book on her wild escapades, she also wrote about feminism, Middle Eastern cultural issues, immigration, sexism, and abortion.

Why do Iranians insist on putting up a perfect moral facade? We are humans and we are far from perfect.

Some people are just fucking stupid beyond belief.

Stop stoning her cause she's a woman

by Sheila K on

We are such misogynist people making judgement about a woman who is not a conformist, but very honest and fearless. Why don't you like her? Az cheshmetoon oftaad?

I just purchased her book and I shall read it. There's more to her story as she was sexually abused as a child. Oh no! That doesn't happen in Iran! Our moral grounds are way higher than others.

this is sort of news but is not really.

Why am I wasting my time reading about this!



More power to her

by cyclicforward on

She likes to live this way, that is fine by me and she has every right to do what she pleases. Be koori cheshm harchi mullast.


Disgusting indeed

by Iraniandudee3 on

It's her choice to be a shameless women with no class, honor, or values, to be used like a tool, but to try to involve nationality and culture into this is just being an attention whore, a shame really.


Iranians might be mostly secular, but they're cultured and don't aprrove of such acts. We're not Americans or the dutch to approve of such liberal acts and view them as positive when it's clearly some negative garbage.


Turban as a Knee Pad

by Ahura on

I hope she does not get the “stoning” verdict; at least she is on the level.

On an irrelevant issue this so called man of God cleric has found a new use for his turban, namely as a knee pad. See it at your own risk.



sure she is a slut but

by azadi5 on

at least she is not like a lot of iranian closet sluts who act all virgin like when it's time to get married, but before and after that it's not much different from this girl. at least she is honest about it.

It's her life and her choice

by Onlyiran on

what's it to us?  



Ali P., do you know any other kadivar

by oktaby on

that qualifies as a slut right next to AN & Majlis and sells their mother for a buck?


Alice In Wonderland

damn she had slept with my

by Alice In Wonderland on

damn she had slept with my idols!!!!I grew up with their songs while she was enjoying them lol....

anyway there's a lot of groupies like her....she is not the only not a big deal! Iranians have always problem with sex, at least she is honest....there are so many iranian girls that acts like "virgin Mary" in public and in private are sluts!

You mean Mohsen Kadivar??

Anahid Hojjati

Live and let live

by Anahid Hojjati on

Iranians have bigger problems than worrying about her. Anyone who makes a big deal of this has his/her priorities wrong.


She is who she is and not pretending or deceiving

by oktaby on

We have had enough moral judgement for a life time. I'm sure most of those passing judgment don't have half her decency.

Not my cup of tea but she is living her life. You want to see a real slut look at Kadivar, Majlis, AN.... and rest of those who will sell their mother for a buck, let alone honor, people and country.




by Mehrban on

In some ways I appreciate her as I am so sick of the pretense of piety from the Islamic Republic.  I am glad she is saying that she is Iranian, because she is.



by smr00 on

Its one thing if you want to write about how your a whore and live an unfortunate, pathetic, meaningless life (and somehow have absolutely no concept of this)..but why bring iran into this? why bring our culture, country, etc into this?
