My life as a porn star

my life as a porn star

My employer and friends were all accepting (and even enthusiastic) when I came out to them about my new side-job. I decided, though, that I would wait until I retired from the industry to tell my mom that I'd been making adult films... if I ever told her at all. My rationale at the time was that I didn't want her to worry about my health (despite my studio's strict adherence to safe sex practices ), but in retrospect I realize that was just an excuse. My real fear was how she'd react if she found out that her angel-lamb is actually a gay porn star. Would she be disappointed in me? Would she be ashamed?

Siri goes on to talk about the difference in pay scales for men and women. Unlike most other professions, women tend to earn more money than their male counterparts in the porn industry. However, what she says about this makes us understand the reason behind this disparity.

The 28-year-old adult movie star and director was so sure of his career choice that as soon as he was legally able to, he took the plunge... so to speak.

Sky and Bill met in 2002 while working together at an independent film-production company. They have a seemingly solid marriage. It's only when Bill thinks too hard about what his wife's been doing in the year since she quit her job as an executive assistant to become a full-time porn star that things get difficult. Occasionally, he can't keep from mulling over the fact that he's home alone while she's getting it on with another man. "Sometimes I think about it when she works late and I'm going to bed," he says. "It's not negative, though. It's more like, eh . . " He trails off with a what-can-you-do groan.

The label "porn star " is overused, but not in Courtney Cummz's case. She's been in porn for a decade, has guested on Howard Stern's show, and has 300,000 Twitter followers. She spoke candidly about how young women are mistreated in the industry, her boyfriends' reactions when they find out she does porn, and how much she likes anal. (A lot.)
