To wonder why any woman would work as a 'pornstar'....

...unless it was the only way
a) to make ends meet and put food on the table and secure a roof over their family's head, or
b) to pay for an expensive drug habit....

Surely it's not just prostitution in private (which is bad enough), but prostitution broadcast to the world! I just can't imagine why anyone would do it as a lifestyle choice?

I can't either. Surely, unless you're a raging exhibitionist, it has to be for the money?

Sadly, from what I've read, a lot of women are coerced into it, and it's not uncommon for trafficked women to be forced into this.

Really don't think women do it because they love sex. hmm

DixieNormas Thu 31-Mar-16 22:06:42

Plenty do it because they want to

Don't fancy it a a job myself though to be completely honest I also don't fancy being a gynaecologist or dentist either. The last two are enormously good for people's health but I still don't fancy eyeing up someone's flute or manly teeth, thanks all the same grin

Different attitudes.
Some women find it easy, good money.
Easier and better money than working all day in a shop.
Flexible hours. Various perks.

Obviously it's a damaging thing to do to yourself if you get trapped in it long term.

It must pay well. In the past people would have used phone chat lines etc but now with the Internet everything is visual.

Flashbangandgone Thu 31-Mar-16 22:08:30

Ok, should have added a third criteria:
c) forced to do it.

Manky teeth, damn phone blush

All of the wealthiest most famous porn stars have committed suicide.

Most pornsters try it for a bit but don't get anywhere with it.

Some people can completely detach emotion from sex.

So I suppose they see it as a way of acting/performing for money.

FarrowandBallAche Thu 31-Mar-16 22:10:33

I think it's naive to think that women get into this kind of industry because they like having sex.

The majority of women like sex but aren't pornstars are they?

Flashbangandgone Thu 31-Mar-16 22:11:05

a sex chat line worker is completely in a different league to being a pornstar surely!

peggyundercrackers Thu 31-Mar-16 22:12:18

I would have thought money.

TheEntWife Thu 31-Mar-16 22:12:21

I think some women measure their self worth by their sexual attractiveness. To some extent we probably all do but for some women involved in porn it seems o be the more people who buy their product the more self esteem they have.

It is a twisted psychology ultimately as eventually they will fall out of fashion or have to resort to more shocking acts to keep their fan base and thus their self worth.

My theory anyway.

manifestdestiny Thu 31-Mar-16 22:12:50

I've thought about it as a backup!

Shitloads of money, all sexual health is checked very regularly, sometimes the sex would be good I would hope and i love sex, so if I was single, I would do it and try out a few fetishes

ElephantSuperhero Thu 31-Mar-16 22:13:13

I follow someone on instagram who is a former porn actress.

She has married someone very rich and presumably has her own wealth too from her career to has a very naice lifestyle with nannies, swimming pools, Louboutons and swish holidays.

I'm guessing she just went into it for the money...

MrsJayy Thu 31-Mar-16 22:13:22

I watched a documentary by an ex pornactress who is now a phsycotherapist it really was grim and nasty the women are descensitised to it they are physicaly and emotionally damaged some said they loved the sex the drugs and lifestyle to start with but once they burn out they are chucked away for somebody younger and fresher the men work till they are older the women are just an orifice just grim.

Many have been victims of abuse.

They rarely do it because they 'just love sex.'

perrita Thu 31-Mar-16 22:16:29

I can't understand it either. I don't believe that women ever really "choose" to go into it, rather feel it's their only option or are incredibly naive and think it's easy money.
