‘Win It’ Wednesday: Sasha Grey Book

Written by PETA | May 4, 2011

Sasha Grey, who struck a pose in a PETA ad promoting spaying and neutering, is letting her artistic side show in her new photography collection, Neϋ Sex, which she calls a “visual mosaic” of thought-provoking artistic expression in self-portraits and photographs.  

Sasha’s first photography show goes on display at a Los Angeles art gallery today, but two PETA Files readers will be able to peruse the whole collection at home anytime they want. Just tell us what you have done to promote spaying and neutering, and the two most inspiring answers will each win an autographed copy of Neü Sex.

The contest will end on May 18, 2011, with the winner chosen on May 20, 2011. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.  

Good luck!

    Every dog or cat I have owned has been spayed or neutered, and I also volunteer with local groops that seek to ensure animals get good homes and spay/neuter any animials that they aid in the addoption process of.

    13 years ago my sponsor said “You want a girlfriend? How about you get a dog first, and see how that works out.” So, off to the Humane Society I go….and fell in love with the most beautiful Belgian Tervuren ever! Well, since then, the girls have come and gone… (well, some more than others… ;>) but my “Recovery Dog” is still with me, and she is doing great!! Anytime I hear someone even thinking about getting a puppy….I am right in there….saying “you REALLY need to go to the Humane Society, and at least look them over first!” Truly, only a Higher Power could have brought such a loyal companion into my life! (Sasha…SO proud of you!!!! Great job, and I hope the best for you!!!!)

    As a veterinary technician I see the horrific results of animals that have not been spayed or neutered (owners having to give them away due to aggression, unwanted puppies or kittens being tossed into the trash, testicular and ovarian cancer). At our clinic we emphasize the spaying and neutering of pets daily to clients. I also personally think it should be some sort of law that you MUST fix your pets unless you’re a licensed breeder… i could go on forever but I hope my point is made :)

    every pet i’ve ever had, i’ve had spayed or neutered, and i’ve got friends who work at different animal clinics, and i keep their business cards b/c not only can i refer people to them to get their animals spayed/neutered, but i also know that pets adopted from them will be spayed/neutered. getting a free book would be a nice validation.

    Here in Russia too much stray animals. They multiply without control; gather into flock; attacks on people with heavy harm to health are not rare. To defend society from stray animals` aggression human beings from time to time arrange real genocide! It`s horrible and disgusting! First human takes full responsibility for an animal. Then after playing a bit with puppet or kitten this “human” throws it on the street. Cruelty comes from cruelty. I had a little cat, I loved her so much. Due to life circumstances I was to leave my hometown and leave my kitten with my aunt. Recognizing full responsibility I spayed my cat. Now Myra has an opportunity to leave in near to nature conditions. She hunts mice, communicate with other cats, sleep in the warmth. She lives full-cat-life and at the same time surrounded with human care. My aunt unfortunately doesn’t have necessary conditions and opportunities to support a large number of cats. If not spaying my aunt had to choose between throw out kittens from Myra or even kill them. I am sure I did everything right. With my friends we often discuss problem of stray animals in Russia. We all have pets and we sincerely concerned on the problem of inhumane treatment of animals. We organized the club, members of which do simple things. We find stray animals and bring them home, wash, medical care, spaying and neutering without fail. Then we look for new owners via social networks. Of course, it`s a drop in the bucket. But we do not lose faith, that our activity will inspire other people and they will treat animals with more responsibility.

  • Kelli says:

    Every dog I’ve ever owned has been neutered, and I encourage every other pet owner I know to spay or neuter their animals. Adopting from shelters helps too since they perform the surgery on all incoming animals.

  • Kristina says:

    My parents didn’t support spay or neutering, and always let their male cat roam the neighborhood. I sat them down, had a good talk with them and convinced them to get him fixed.

  • Shari says:

    Joined a Trap-N- Release program here in San Antonio,Tx. And so far I did 75 cats/ kittens. Tamed a few and placed kittens in adopted homes! I also pick up and take in my co- workers pets to get spay because they can’t get off work during the week to get it done at the low coat shelter. It helps saves them money and their pet gets fixed! I pass out Peta Leaflets and post them all over, I was just doing that this morning! Laundry Mats are the best places to leaflets! Also Apartment Complexes were their are hundreds of people in a small area! They often start attending protest with me because I leave extra leaflets on Circus Abuse, Anti-Fur, extra… Animal Birth Control leaflets ( getting a pet fixed ) is usually the first step to becoming involved in protesting more animals and becoming a futures activist!

    My signature for every email is Bob Barkers quote that he would say at the end of every Price is Right episode. “Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered” Aside from generally talking about it to friends and family, I thought this was a cute way to keep it in peoples minds.

  • Célia says:

    I advertised PETA ad in which Sasha Grey poses to many friends and family here in France, explaining them who she was and everything… after the first shock, they understand and the message gets accross really well, because it’s fun and daring what Sasha did!!!

  • Seth says:

    Is she a vegan?? If not, than this is irrevelant.

  • diabolus999 says:

    I only own gay animals!

  • Nicole Lee says:

    I found a kitten inside my managers engine & couldn’t manage bringing him to a shelter to just sit… and I knew the responsibilities of having a kitten of getting him his shots & neutered because I see all those cats, dogs & other animals sitting in shelters because of carelessness & neglect that I couldn’t imagine bringing anymore kittens into this world to not be loved and sitting in a cage! I also couldn’t handle another cat like mine … he’s a character all by himself! I feel bad for so many animals that sit in shelters because they were born into this world without knowing what was going to happen to them…. please spay or neuter your pet! Please please please!

  • Andrew says:

    I always encourage friends to get resuce dogs because 1) it saves an animals life 2) the contracts generally state that you will spay/nueter your pet or in the case of my county you pick them up from a local vet or humane society after they’ve already had their surgery 3) it save a fourtune over the life of your pet in licensing fees. I also encourage friends to spay/neuter their pets they already have because if they do have a litter it’s uncertain and unfair to those little lives if you can’t find a good home for them.

  • @dougiejam says:

    Australian fan here, we love you down under Sasha. You rock!

  • thc says:

    i squirt sunblock on my friend’s pant legs whenever they show me their new dog. i then say spay or neuter or next time that won’t be sunblock.

  • Diego says:

    I come from a pretty impoverished country in which is common to see stray dogs everywhere. It’s also pretty common to see them being mistreated in many ways and few people care about that. My grandma loved dogs and very often we would go to the park nearby, get near the dogs (the ones who weren’t aggressive at least) and take them to the local veterinarian to be neutered and checked. Unfortunately she started to get sick and I had to focus on school. If I ever have kids, I swear I’ll do the same.

  • Paul says:

    I once rescued a dog from a drug addict. The dog was seriously malnourished, and I wondered whether the owner had fed drugs to the dog, as he had some behavioral and health issues. At the time that I rescued him, he even had glass broken glass in his fur. After getting him checked out at a vet and nursing him back to health, I found him a good home. But a few months later, when visiting him, I learned they still had not neutered him. After some questioning, that mostly consisted of an insistence that they didn’t support neutering, I learned that the question was more financial: they were cash strapped and couldn’t afford it, and were merely reluctant to admit to such. Living paycheck-to-paycheck myself, I hadn’t been able to afford it initially either, so I understood completely where they were coming from, but decided it needed doing, so I took the cost upon myself. The dog is now very happy, and 100% healthy.

    I’ve posted PETA stickers everywhere I go, commented on friend’s status whenever they say they want to breed their dog (I continue until they give up). I’ve come across neighbors encouraging to spay and neuter they’re dogs. Post my fb and twitter status so many times encouraging ppl to spay and neuter.

    Throughout my college campus, I have spread flyers and small cards that say why you should spay/neuter your pets, and the name of the nearest animal shelter that spays and neuters–affordably. As much as it disappoints me now, no one will spend what they feel is a lot of money on something that they think their dog or cat doesn’t need. I was in the same sort of mindset: “My dog doesn’t need to be spayed. I’d rather spend that money on dog food or save it in case of an emergency vet bill.” But one day, she did need it. My normally energetic dog, Mona, was sleeping too much, not eating, and the look in her eyes wasn’t the same. We took her to the vet, and it turned out that she had pyometra. We needed to have her spayed immediately; and so we did. A week or so later, my border collie was back to her normal, happy self. It’s not just important to spay/neuter your pets because there are too many and those puppies or kitties have such an uncertain fate. It’s important to spay or neuter your pets because if you don’t, you may lose them to a disease you never saw coming.
