She was one of the biggest pornstars in the world, but Lisa Ann says fans became so confused with her online persona that they used to offer her money for sex.
The 47-year-old recently retired from the industry and has opened up about the darker side of porn, saying she used to get into arguments with guys in clubs who thought she was a prostitute.
Speaking to LADbible, Lisa, who is most famous for satirising Republican politician Sarah Palin in 2008 film Who's Nailin' Paylin?, says she was 'fighting an uphill battle'.
She said: "I know that a lot of women in the business, when they're not working, they escort. And that was another thing that pushed me out of the business, because I realised I was fighting an uphill battle.
"I was one of the only girls in the business who didn't escort and I had to understand that when I was in clubs and guys were arguing with me, saying, 'the last girl that was here did it, why won't you do it? You f*** on camera for money, what's wrong with me?'"
"I'd spend so many hours a night during my last couple of years on the road debating with people, and then at the end of it have them pretty much tell me to f*** off."
And though a certain amount of her fame is thanks to the internet, Lisa says it has also led to a whole new wave of fans who feel they know her and have the right to contact her.
She said: "It is so annoying. It shows me how confused people are, that they've built this one way relationship with me they feel entitled to my time.
"Before the internet I would go to Huntington beach every day and go anywhere I wanted, and then I was suffocated. Now it's free, people have so much access, they're confused and they think they have access to you as a person.
"And when a million people a day are asking for your time, it makes you feel the world has gone insane, because what makes them think I want to be alone with them?
"I've realised that the accessibility to the free content and the hours some of these guys watch just confuses them."
And Lisa, who now hosts a Fantasy Sports podcast on SiriusXM, believes this is a problem that is only going to grow if action isn't taken to prevent younger people from accessing explicit adult content.
She said: "In the 90s, there was no way to see porn if you were under 18. Kids are starting to watch porn at 10 years old, so by 18 they're addicted - they don't know they are but they are.
"At the age of 10, they don't wrap their head around the fact that we're stunt people, sexual stunt people, we get paid to do this but it doesn't mean we want to do it with you.
"And they're seeing so much content that they don't understand why you wouldn't want to do it with them. So we're allowing the access for free, we're allowing it for under 18 and confusing the mind of many."
