Technically that’s true, but that still doesn’t make it right. “For females, the average duration of a career in pornography is less than six months, and upwards of 30% of females leave the industry after shooting just one video. For males, the average duration of a career in pornography is around five years.”

Jenna Jameson wrote a book about how coming from an abusive childhood led her to accept things in the porn industry that were both painful and degrading. This is pretty common. It’s called “How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale.”
