Joi Lansing: A Body to Die For by Alexis Hunter

The seductive yet destructive climate of Hollywood
Hollywood, California (PRWEB) May 12, 2021

Joi Lansing may have been the last of Hollywood’s blonde bombshells, but she was also victim to its vile, indeed murderous system of control. With Joi Lansing: A Body to Die For, author Alexis Hunter, herself a victim of studio “indentured servitude” and Lansing’s partner and spouse during the starlet’s final years, offers the tell-all now available in a new, frank edition set for these post- #MeToo years, and just in time for the tenth anniversary of marriage equality. More so, the author is currently in talks with enthusiastic producers to cast this vital story as a film or mini-series.

Hunter, a quiet activist over decades for the rights of women and the LGBTQ community, was forced--like far too many--to endure a hidden life during her years with the noted s*x symbol. “I had to pose as her little sister”, Hunter explained, “and was given the name Rachel Lansing” to explain their shared life. It is rare that such a romance can exist amidst the seductive yet destructive climate of Hollywood. Indeed, the pair forged a lasting relationship cut brutally short by the encroaching cancer Joi developed following years of breast- and buttocks-enhancement injections by a rabidly profit-mad industry. Told with a still palpable love by the author, the book places the reader into the heart of a relationship that couldn’t have known it was destined for such a meager shelf life. Joi Lansing, actress and vocalist, was the tragic biproduct of male-led business thriving on the distorted body imagery of women, particularly in the time of #BeverlyKills, which we apparently are not as far removed from as we’d thought. The book is a must-read as our society re-evaluates whether or not we’ve done all we can to assure this tragedy doesn’t happen again. As Hunter states in this unfortunately timeless tale, “Joi died for beauty”.

The 2021 edition of Joi Lansing: A Body to Die For by Alexis Hunter will be available as a download on June 24, 2021, LGBTQ Pride Day and the anniversary of the Marriage Equality Act. It will soon be published in book form. See BearManorMedia.com for more information.

Harvey Weinstein didn’t invent the humiliation of s*xual harassment but his case has finally brought the topic to millions of discussions, texts, opinion pieces and placards. It’s NEVER time to shut it down as the silencing of the victim, since time immemorial has allowed oppression and abuse to continue. With a passion. On this week’s edition of “She’s Raising the Bar”, hosts Laurie Towers and Elite Ziegelman engage in the discussion with a Roundtable of a veteran model, a dancer and a poet to explore the many faces of s*xual harassment. To some startling results.
