Victoria Coren Mitchell - Writer, Broadcaster & Poker Player


Once More, With Feeling is the story of the year that Victoria Coren and Charlie Skelton spent trying to make the greatest erotic movie of all time. Nothing stood in their way – apart from their conservative families, stammering English reserve, and total lack of experience. They travelled from London to Las Vegas and Los Angeles to Amsterdam, falling in love with porn stars, buying costumes in charity shops, struggling to choreograph their fantasies, getting fleeced by hookers and spooked in brothels, and constantly pressing the wrong buttons on the camera. The book is deeply honest, very funny and extremely embarrassing. Safest to buy it online, here.


It is a relentlessly funny book and I couldn’t put it down.” The Observer

Told in crisp, accessible prose, it is extremely funny and surprisingly heartwarming.” GQ

You will not read a funnier account of shooting a porn movie.. a laugh-out-loud book, absolutely inoffensive. One of the great pleasures is Vicky and Charlie’s stripped-down honesty. Readers liberal or conservative will find plenty to think about, and not many books can do that and make you laugh.” Jeanette Winterson, The Times
Complete Winterson article.

It’s a gripping adventure, and obviously the funniest book you’ll read all year.” Caitlin Moran

Thoroughly amusing and entertaining.” Mail On Sunday

A truly hilarious account of two innocents adrift in the porn industry, but it is so much more than that.” Attitude

Exceedingly funny…This book is not only a diary of making a porn film, it is also about a male/female platonic friendship and that weirdly common growing-up crisis that people experience around the age of 30.” Tatler

Funny, insightful and not at all unpleasant. Well, okay, maybe a little bit unpleasant but you can always avert your gaze.” Jonathan Ross

A guilty treat.” Sunday Herald

All in all it’s a most peculiar story, but told in a highly entertaining book.” Fiesta

An eminently readable account of utter filth. Just my cup of tea.” Griff Rhys Jones
