Mia Khalifa explains the changes she wants to see happen in the porn industry

Mia Khalifa has explained what changes she'd like to see implemented in the porn industry.

The Lebanese-born influencer and sports broadcaster was once the top-rated star on Pornhub, causing controversy in the Middle East after she performed sex scenes in a hijab.

She has since revealed that her headline-grabbing three months in the industry were the worst of her life, and she wants the industry to evolve to prevent other people going through similar experiences to her.

"I feel like the age should be raised for a production company to own your rights to 21, at least," she told Emily Ratajkowski, on her podcast High Low with EmRata.

"If you wanna enter the sex work industry, by all means, do it after 18. That's the legal age, that's never gonna be fought.

"You have to be really realistic about the safety and ethics around sex work because it's the oldest profession in the entire world. The oldest profession, it's never going away.

"The more you tighten restrictions on it, the more people will find a way around it, and that could be said for anything - the prohibition era exists for a reason."

Nowadays Khalifa has left porn behind and is making a lot more money on OnlyFans.

Asked how she feels about the platform, the 29-year-old said: "I'm so torn about it. I really wish that they would stop putting so much emphasis on the celebrity creators and the people that didn't really build a platform.

"When they changed all those rules to try and accommodate the people who were fine, and getting royalty cheques, that's where my issue with OnlyFans comes in."

She continued: "I should not be biting the hand that literally feeds me because it's also the place where I found a lot more of my bodily autonomy, I was able to take that back.

"My OnlyFans has always been non-nude. It's very suggestive, anything that I post on OnlyFans I feel like could be posted on Instagram and it would be completely fine."

She added: "I am doing it my way, in a way that I feel comfortable, and it is great. It is really good to have that for myself and be able to take that back.

"To share images of me, who I am now - not the child that is being circulated on the internet that I wish I could back away in that box where she belonged."
