12 Cringeworthy Truths Nobody Tells You About Porn

Porn is not exactly enjoyable as the stars in the videos make it out to be.

It is quite the contrary.

For most  pornstars, it is a job, and from what the retired pornstars speak – a job, they are glad they retired from. While most of us sit on this side of the screen and enjoy the seemingly perfect scenes of apparent lovemaking, the other side hides grim secrets between cuts and after movie shoots.

In short – the world of porn is not hunky dory at all, as you will see.

1. Women porn stars have been raped

PORN-1

If you read the online news keenly, you might have stumbled on to the news where the famous pornstar Stoya accused her ex James Deen of rape.

Most of us might argue – “She is getting paid for it! How is that rape?!”

But it is. Even in the realm of sex workers, the issue of consent is still valid. Many female pornstars backed Stoya’s claims and came out to confess that James Deen had raped them too. Some say that the Stoya incident is just the tip of the iceberg. Things are just starting to open up.

2. Women porn stars have been physically assaulted too

PORN-6

When Stoya came out with her story of rape, many porn stars came out with stories of not rape, but physical assault by the same guy. Then it came to light that women being physically assaulted are completely routine in the industry.

Female pornstars are hit and made to do things they do not want to do at all. Some have been slapped right across the face – and not in the sleazy BDSM way. The kind that leaves bruises and broken cheekbones.

3. Hardcore porn promotes violence, as studies have shown

PORN-12

Watching porn over a long period of time desensitizes you. You, me and everyone who has been seeing porn for more than a couple of years. This issue led to the creation of “hardcore” pornography.

The statistics of assault on women in the videos itself is unsettling. Almost 88% of all the hardcore porn videos portray violence towards women in one way or the other.

This trend has increased instances of negative attitude towards women, and high incidents of aggression towards women.

4. Many porn movies are illegally made on prostitutes without their consent, who later suffer from PTSD

PORN-3

Many amateur producers, who do not have the budget to hire professional pornstars, hire prostitutes and film them without any signed consent.

These prostitutes complain of assault and forced rape and suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – the same thing soldiers suffer from after they come back from war.

5. Sometimes the duration of the shoot gets really stretched and things get uncomfortable

PORN-4

The shoots do not last for just the time you watch it on the computer. It is like a movie production, and things get uncomfortable after some hours into it. There is chafing and exhaustion and physical tiredness.

It’s sex, but even sex is not enjoyable if done continuously for hours and hours without breaks.

 

6. Porn stars find it very difficult to have a meaningful relationship in their personal lives

PORN-9

Would you date a pornstar?

They are part of the social stigma associated with their profession. They rarely find a person who will love them unconditionally. They almost never find a fulfilling relationship. Some do, and they are the ones we focus on while the rest just get on with their lives.

 

7. There is no real safe sex – because the audience doesn’t want to see condoms

PORN-7

The audience, as the production houses have realized, doesn’t want to see condoms in the sex acts at all. Only ONE production house in LA has a rule of mandatory use of condoms.

And, in a profession where sexual partners change every week, STDs are widespread. Herpes, gonorrhea, and syphilis is rampant too.

All because the audience doesn’t like to see condoms on screen.

 

8. Not all men are confident porn stars. They inject a chemical into their penis to get it erect.

PORN-2

While a lot of guys must be surprised to see the male pornstars go at it for hours, it is not really the complete picture. Many male pornstars struggle to get an erection in front of a film crew and glare lights.

Many pop viagra pills and even an injection called Trimix to get it up and keep at it.

9. Those anal shoots men love to watch are inhuman for women porn stars

PORN-10

While anal sex is a fetish of many men, anal sex is extremely inhumane towards women – not just the act of it, but the preparation before it –

The female porn stars eat a lot of laxatives to rid the solid waste from their colon.

They observe a 48 hour fast where they drink just lemon juice.

They bleach the area around the orifice.

They use Amyl Nitrate on the rectum to loosen the muscles and reduce trauma from the act.

Awesome, no?

10. Many female pornstars have committed suicide and many have died of STDs

PORN-11

Before the strict rules of getting tested for Sexually Transmitted Diseases came into force, the industry was ravaged by these. Back in the 80s and 90s female porn stars were assaulted without the fear of being in the spotlight.

As a result, many of them committed suicide. Former porn star Shelley Lubben on her site lists 400 pornstars who have died of either an STD or suicide. 70 of these have been suicides.

11. Since the pay for doing gay porn is more, straight men do it for the money

PORN-13

Not all male pornstars who act in gay porn are gay.

The basic pay of a pornstar who acts in gay porn is more than that of a pornstar who acts in straight porn. This is the reason why some straight pornstars deliberately act in gay porn for the money.

The same goes for women pornstars. Not all of the pornstars who act in lesbian porn are lesbians.

The industry term for this phenomenon is Gay For Pay.

 

12. Many pornstar agencies cater to powerful people – where pornstars essentially become hookers

PORN-8

Porn movies recruit pornstars from pornstar agencies – just like movies and fashion shows recruit from talent agencies. All this is good and all but some of the top pornstar agencies supply these pornstars as call girls to highly powerful people around the world.

They are essentially pimping with a legitimate front of a porn agency.

Most of the pornstars are lured into the industry because they have had bad childhoods, because they were poor, because they were naive, because they didn’t know that they could have had a better life.

Because most of the ex-pornstars complained that once they got into the industry there was no way they could have gotten out. That’s why most of the things revealed here are from interviews by ex-pornstars.

But there is also a group of professionals who voluntarily ventured into the profession and had a good life.

Good for them.
