Riley Reid thought 'she hated porn' so almost quit the industry

Riley Reid thought 'she hated porn' so almost quit the industry

Pornstar Riley Reid has said she almost quit the adult industry due to having feelings of resentment towards it.

Porn star Riley Reid has admitted that she once considered quitting the adult industry as she thought 'she hated porn'.

Reid is one of the most famous porn stars on the planet, and that has brought some difficulties for her in terms of relationships.

The 31-year-old is now married to Latavian free-runner Pasha Petkuns after the pair tied the knot in 2021.

Reid and Petkuns live in a mega £4.5 million mansion with 3.6 acres of land in Los Angeles.

The couple also have a baby daughter named Emma, who was born in July this year.

But relationships haven't always been plain sailing for Reid, as a previous relationship nearly made her quit porn.

She opened up on her previous relationships recently on the No Jumper podcast with host Adam.

Reid said: "My ex was so anti-porn, I almost quit porn because I thought I hated porn, but then I realised I just hated him.

The porn star then explained that tensions with her ex-boyfriend escalated after Reid became more successful shooting a**l scenes.

She said: "That was where his super, mega insecurities and our relationships started to get on the rocks because it was starting to affect our at-home life.

"You know when you're doing anal, you can't eat certain foods, can't do certain things."

The host Adam then asked: "So it's like reminding him of the reality of your job too much?"

Reid agreed with the host, and also added: "But when I have a special anal scene, I have to tell him 'I just have to have this, this...'

"So things like that were triggering because it was like 'when she isn't eating normal, that means she has a**l the next day'

"It was emotionally draining and exhausting," she concluded.

Reid's comments on the podcast are not the first time she has opened up about past relationships.

Before marrying Petkuns in 2021, Reid took to her Instagram account to make an honest confession about what her previous boyfriends thought of her job.

She said: "Never have I ever had a boyfriend who was proud of my job.

"I’ve had two ‘normal’ boyfriends in my adult life, normal being they don’t do porn. Both of which ended in an ultimatum, porn or them.

"I always chose porn. I’ve struggled with that choice though, wondering if I’ve made the right decision."
