Former Porn Star Lana Rhoades Says She Wouldn't Return To Career For Any Amount Of Money

Former Porn Star Lana Rhoades Says She Wouldn't Return To Career For Any Amount Of Money

Lana Rhoades says she would never return to her porn career, no matter how much money she is offered.

The former adult entertainer does not look back on her time in the industry with great fondness, and has spoken out previously about the trauma she experienced.

She recently opened up about the impact her time in porn had on her and why there isn't enough money to tempt her back.

The 25-year-old told the Daily Star: "I can’t hide from it. Wherever I go everyone’s seen me get f****d and I’ve just got to do the best that I can with it."

She went on: "I’m not saying every scene I did was horrible, but there are a handful that were enough to do damage.

"There were three to five that were really traumatic for me – whether it’s being sent to a set with someone who was way too old… or being pressured into doing something that I was scared of doing because it was too extreme, that can definitely be very traumatic.

"I have had friends who have been choked out so much they’ve actually passed out during a scene.

"There’s just really crazy stuff going on that damages people’s bodies for the rest of their lives."

In an interview with Playboy last year, the mum-of-one said there were some scenes she was asked to do that left her suffering from panic attacks.

And while she says she was never forced to do anything, there was an expectation.

"You could get into the industry and say, I would never do a gang bang and I would never do this. You know that getting into it," she said.

"But [agents] say things to you over time to sort of – what would the word be? – groom you into doing more.

"They’ll say things like, 'Oh, all the good sl**s do this. That’s how people are going to love you. If you do this, you have to do this and that'. You don’t want to let anyone down, so you end up doing it over time.

"I definitely deal with depression and suicidal thoughts monthly because of my past in porn."

Lana now makes her fortune from social media, using Instagram to grow her brand, while still posting to her OnlyFans account. She is also a successful podcaster.

And she says she would never encourage another woman to go into porn when there's millions to be made on your own.

She added: "In the industry, I did not get paid s***. I probably had $100,000 (roughly £81,000) when I quit shooting porn, now I’m a multimillionaire,” she claimed.

"That’s what I warn girls, it’s not all that glamorous, it’s not even well-paid. It’s much smarter to go into Instagram or just do an OnlyFans."
