[A Must Read] The Confession of a Porn Star

Hello people! It’s a great day! Sometime last week, we started to x-ray the issue of pornography. Do CLICK the foregone link and read it, just incase you missed it. One may wonder why in the world are we discussing pornography in a blog that is staging a campaign against sexual assaults. Well, I’m just thinking that there might be  some connection between the use of porn and the unbridled sexual passion experienced in our days. Fine! We all have the urge for sex reposed in us. I wake up some mornings and I feel like ‘it’ so badly. I turn to the other side of my bed, all I see is nothing but a pillow… yea! I’m yet to be married. But I always remember the words of a wise man which goes “Never allow ERECTION to give you DIRECTION.” 

Still on porn: there’s a likelihood that you reading this blog have seen a porn movie. You know how you do it… with the remote in your hands and you just keep fast-forwarding to the ‘main show’. With the internet, porn is easily accessed by all. Maybe you gat some of those stuffs in a passworded folder in ur mobile gadget. Don’t get fooled to believe that porn represents a real life situation. You know these porn guys and gals are always energetic… yelling and screaming and just keep mesmerizing you. A man or woman, after seeing such a movie then turns to his or her partner and wants them to transform into the porn stars. Porn is a script, it doesn’t represent a real life situation. If you have some knowledge of movie making, you can attest that after stripping, the movie director can decide to shut all cameras and resume shooting maybe in another six months. Between the kissing and the touching and all the mmhhmm….. many months can elapse. But after joining tape to tape, they come out with 30 minutes ‘steamy hot’ sex scene to fool you. So, you keep seeing your spouse as a ‘failure.’ No! You are the one that’s been cajoled by people who out are to make hard Dollars.

I love to work with statistics and raw facts, so I gat some interviews with Porn Stars to show you. After reading this, you have your conclusion to draw. See for yourself:

  • Only 17% of performers use condoms in heterosexual adult films; in 2004, only two of the 200 adult film companies required the use of condoms
  • One male pornographic performer, Rocco (600 films and 3,000 women), said: “Every professional in the porn-world has herpes, male or female.”
  • Dr. Sharon Mitchell confirms the STD prevalence in an interview with Court TV, in which she states: “66% of porn performers have Herpes, 12-28% have sexually transmitted diseases, and 7% have HIV.”
  • Porn actress Erin Moore admits, “the drugs we binged on were Ecstasy, Cocaine, Marijuana, Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and alcohol.”
  • Tanya Burleson, formerly known as Jersey Jaxin, says, “Guys are punching you in the face. You get ripped. Your insides can come out of you. It’s never ending. You’re viewed as an object—not as a human with a spirit. People do drugs because they can’t deal with the way they’re being treated.”
  • In 2004, Dr. Mary Anne Layden reported before a Senate subcommittee: “Once [the pornography actresses] are in the industry they have high rates of substance abuse, typically alcohol and cocaine, depression, borderline personality disorder. . . . The experience I find most common among the performers is that they have to be drunk, high or dissociated in order to go to work. Their work environment is particularly toxic. . . . The terrible work life of the pornography performer is often followed by an equally terrible home life. They have an increased risk of sexually transmitted disease including HIV, domestic violence and have about a 25% chance of making a marriage that lasts as long as 3 years.”
  • In 1997, Eric Schlosser reported, “The highest-paid performers, the actresses with exclusive contracts, earn between $80,000 and $100,000 a year for doing about 20 sex scenes and making a dozen or so personal appearances. Only a handful of actresses—perhaps 10 to 15—are signed to such contracts. Other leading stars are paid roughly $1,000 per scene. The vast majority of porn actresses are ‘B girls,’ who earn about $300 a scene. They typically try to do two scenes a day, four or five times a week. At the moment, there is an oversupply of women in Southern California hoping to enter the porn industry. Overtime is a thing of the past, and some newcomers will work for $150 a scene.”

Hellooooo! Have you seen for yourself? The porn stars are people who are drunk on hard drugs, they don’t have a life of their own anymore. Some of them have contacted HIV/AIDS and other deadly sexually transmitted diseases in the industry. I am particularly touched by the words of Tanya Burleson, that is why I highlighted them in red: “… You’re viewed as an object—not as a human with a spirit…” The truth be told, many porn stars are not happy with the lives they live.

In our next post, we shall examine the impact of pornography on marriages. It will be an eye-opener. Do watch out for it. Hope I didn’t mess your day up with this? Sorry if I did. I’m only after a sane world where inspite of the sexual passion reposed in us, we can still be in charge of our bodies. Don’t you think that’s what distinguishes us from the animals?

Alright! I will catch you at some other times. Remember: “NEVER allow ERECTION whether of the penis or the clitoris to give you DIRECTION.”
