Back in January 1995 in Los Angeles, California, a Singaporean pornstar named Annabel Chong took cultural rebellion to an extreme, on terms that had never been negotiated before. She was filmed having sex with a long receiving line of men, servicing them 251 times over a ten-hour period to set a new world record: The World’s Biggest Gangbang. 

Now bestselling author Gerrie Lim, Annabel’s longtime friend and confidant, revisits those events and reexamines those scenarios to shed new light on her legend, to discover why such an enduring curiosity about her exists, and to learn why she is still regarded in her own native Singapore as something akin to a mythological figure. As Lim writes, “she did this gangbang as a gender studies/liberal- progressive/feminist statement to subvert gender stereotypes, but no one got it.” This book, featuring many of the author’s own conversations and correspondences with Annabel over the years, is the first serious inquiry into the fascinating persona of a seldomdiscussed, yet often secretly venerated, Asian celebrity.
