Adult stars all gave the same answer when asked about negative impact career had on their lives

Adult stars all gave the same answer when asked about negative impact career had on their lives

They have opened up about the negatives of their careers

Let’s talk about porn.

Okay, now I know I’ve got your attention - let’s actually talk about the porn stars who are baring all (pun intended) by sharing their experiences with the industry, and it’s the exact same thing.

Pornhub, RedTube, and whatever else tickles your fancy - there’s always a site to keep you going. But do you ever think about how filming constant sex scenes for the enjoyment of the public can negatively affect the lives of those trying to earn some cash?

Recently, Pornhub’s Hall of Fame winner, Riley Reid opened up in an emotional YouTube video about how her decade in porn has ruined her ability to have a normal life.

Speaking to her fans, she said that if someone was asking for her advice on joining the industry, she said: “I tell them that it makes life really hard, it makes dating really hard, it makes your family life really hard, it makes intimacy hard.”

And she’s not alone in her struggles for a normal life.

Angela White, an Australian pornographic film actress and director told You Can't Ask That: "It is difficult to find a partner that you truly connect with.”

Even though she has had a renowned career in the industry, like many others, it appears like they’re all saying the same thing and it’s not just the women.

Even the men find it hard outside of the set.

Christopher Zeischegg, aka Danny Wylde, was being paid $4,000 per month to film six days a month when he recognised that taking Viagra to prolong his erections was an issue.

He went on to develop Priapism due to the Viagra, which is a disorder in which the penis maintains a prolonged, rigid erection in the absence of appropriate stimulation.

He shared that when he found out about the side effects of the drug (it could lead to erectile dysfunction) he quit his job the next day, but quickly realised that he developed performance anxiety without the little pill.

He said to The Independent: "There should have been no reason that I needed to do that. But I had developed this idea about myself, and I didn't want to let my partner down, or make them think that I was anything less than a 'porn star' in bed."

Surprisingly, a lot more porn stars feel the exact same way.

Speaking to MARCA, three other X-rated stars shared their outlook on sex, relationships and the adult film industry.

Porn star Arianna Kody revealed that working in X-rated scenes has ‘kind of ruined sex in my personal life’, with Nikki Stern agreeing.

Rubi Valentine said that she’s only now ‘getting back to basics’ in terms of intimacy after years in the world of porn.

She said that she now really likes ‘holding hands and kissing’.
