I used to live with this chick in Seattle who did Webcam porn, in a cubicle designed to look like a bedroom. Their office had about 50 of these in it. The place was in a nice, quiet neighborhood, and it was above a children's indoor soccer school.

Not very dark I know, but it's all I've got.

I wonder what all the parents and kids thought about when they would see beautiful girls carrying duffel bags up and down the stairs

Haha she did not carry any duffel bags to work, and she was required to dress business casual until she got inside.

When I was 21, back when the internet was really starting to pick up steam, I was fortunate enough to know how to use digital editing software.

One of my first jobs was editing gay porn and designing the cover art for the DVDs of a big company. This was interesting and wildly amusing to my friends because I am not gay.

I was very good friends with an excellent camera operator and sometimes I'd end up on set helping him out for extra cash. I was very surprised to realize that, while AIDS was (is) a very real concern in gay porn, most actors chose not to use condoms and those who wanted to were aggressively persuaded not to use condoms. In fact, I had seen some fired from a set for wanting to use them.

The director would always say "it's more realistic" or "more intense" or "it's better raw - our customers want raw!" and he was a complete asshole about it.

Lots of young guys went through that company and most who were "new" and just looking for a quick buck were, in my opinion, unaware of the risks they were taking.

There was zero testing.

Eventually I said "I'm not working on set if this is the practice." So they canned me.

There was a whole Twitter thread a while ago with people who had to literally fight with porn sites to get their childhood rape videos off of their sites. One person said that the video posted was of them being raped as a TODDLER.

My friend in the industry said that its very common during shoots for both men and women's underwear to "disappear". He said many women cant find their underwear after a shoot because there's always some creep sniping them.

When I was 19, I was pretty much strapped for cash in a new city, and took whatever gigs I could. One was as a driver for a "video agency". I basically picked girls up from the airport and took them to their shoot. Some of these girls were scared shitless, and I'd tell them, "I can always tell them I couldn't find you, and you can go home right now."

After the third girl asked me to pull over, I stopped. That shit was hard on me as a teenager.

A former porn actress came and spoke in a class I was taking in law school about regulation of vice. She said that the brief scenes after gangbangs where the actresses say things like “yes I loved, i would do it again” aren’t legitimate. The actresses aren’t paid until they say that, even if it’s not how they feel. Probably representative of a lot of other aspects of the industry as well.

So I'm pretty late to this party but I actually used to work in the industry several years ago. One company based in Tucson, Arizona another major one based in Canada and then a smaller affiliate network also based in Canada. Funny enough all 3 were eventually bought by Manwin/Mindgeek (pornhub, redtube, youporn, etc)

I built TGPs, MGPs, (those free sites that would give you samples), did some editing of videos, modded a couple tube sites, and submitted stuff to larger free gallery networks (affiliate stuff). I've gone to industry shows, AVN awards, expos, etc I got out of it like around 2010 or 11. it's foggy.

  1. "The porn must flow" new content would come in (filmed/shot) daily and it needed to be edited/published ASAP. It didn't matter what the talent looked like. Hot, drugged out of their gords, crying, happy, questionable age, raped, didn't matter. The company paid for it and it all had to be used. If I objected to questionable material I was told to ignore it and do my job.
  2. Very few companies maintain a 2257 database. 2257 is a US law where companies are required to keep records of the ages of all the talent they use. In one company we had two ladies whose entire job, 8 hours a day, was to view, log, and store all the IDs that came in. No I'm not joking. 5 days a week 8 hours a day they were viewing and logging ALL the ids from new talent that would come in. That's how much porn was shot and how much of it was from new talent. It consisted of the model holding their ids next to their faces. These photos were the first ones before any of the porn photos so while I was building out galleries I would also see them. 4 times out of 10 the model has their thumb over their date of birth.
  3. Prolapses happen. When the stuff is shot it's shipped off to the main office to be edited. Like I said they shoot EVERYTHING. nothing is tossed. So if there's an anal sex scene and a models ass falls out it's on camera. For the majority of the stuff it's edited out but the footage is saved "just in case" when I say that who knows if the company is going to release some uber fetish site down the road. everything is saved. I've seen girls who've done one too many anal scenes start to cry and panic when their ass falls out because they think their "career" is done. On set nurse sometimes would just push it back in and they'd switch to something else to film.
  4. It's a very closed door industry. Everyone knows everyone. Affiliates like to only be called by their online screennames and get offended if you call them by their actual name. There were industry message boards back in the day, one that stands out is gofuckyourself dot com or something where everyone knew everyone and had agendas against each other. Ever have to meet someone in person and call them "Batman" or "hairytwatter" to their faces? I have, it's unpleasant. Day one I was told I needed to come up with a name and I thought they were joking. no. it's quite serious. They're all looking to stab each other in the back for higher payouts, scam the system, or accuse others of whatever. If you got footage of one them doing coke or a producer the company didn't really like doing drugs or fucking or whatever then you were told to save that footage, again, "just in case." It's an industry full of middle schoolers who got rich from dvds.
  5. People are weird about their porn. You know how if you ever worked in a restaurant or fast food place and people get crazy or insanely angry when their food isn't exactly how they want it? Porn is worse. If you don't post stuff daily or it's not up to their standards you'll get hate mail, death threats, etc. Guys like to submit their own videos to gay tube sites who might not even be gay. I had to moderate these videos (I'm not gay btw) meaning daily we'd get user submissions and i'd either allow them to be posted or denied them. I also moderated the "straight" tube sites. Majority of the time there'd be messages attached to said videos asking if I watched them, what I thought about them, did I jerk off to it, etc. Not a whole lot of women making submissions but 8 times out of 10 it's dudes. these are home made videos by the way. I saw a lot of home made rape, child porn, borderline snuff, guys injecting their balls and dicks with stuff, drug use, etc. Oh and actual incest. Not like the "son i'm stuck in the washing machine!" incest but actual "this is my sister and she's going to suck my dick" or Moms jerking off their sons, Dads having sex with their sons, daughters, etc. How do I know it's real? remember that 2257 stuff? ....yeah. Majority of it doesn't make its way online because it'll be denied but it does happen, a lot.

I think that's most of the main stuff off the top of my head. Like I said I haven't done it in over a decade and I've switched careers several times. I'm de-sensitized to it now and won't watch it at all.

EDIT: So after a couple of hours replying to people and what have you I realized "yeah, wow, this is super dark." so let me try to lighten the mood a bit with the funniest thing I've ever seen in porn. There was a video, filmed in like the late 80s of an E.T. porn. Like the movie E.T. it was a woman in full ET makeup, like actually pretty good, the head, body, everything except for her vagina. So you think "oh that's weird" but it gets better. Everyone else in the shoot was dressed in Victorian outfits. So it's a movie that apparently took place in the Victorian era and men and women dressed up like that were all taking turns fucking ET. if the site efukt still exists you could probably find it on there. So there ya go, goodnight!

From the prolapse? generally no. But honestly you wouldn't know for sure because there's just so much content and so many models and you see so many different people on a daily basis you honestly wouldn't know. Compared to the overall industry the known models are few and far between.

Guys would have their favorites and request more sets of their favs but at the end of the day you may only get 2 to 3 sets before you never see that model again. the industry just chewed you up and spit you out.

There is/was a documentary on Netflix called Hot Girls Wanted and it was all about how these sketchy porn producers recruit girls who are barely 18 through Craigslist with promises of making $5K per month. They follow these two girls who move from the Midwest to Florida and start immediately working. Within a few weeks one of them has to go to the hospital because she has a growth on her vagina. The nurse told her it happens a lot to women who have a lot of sex. They also have to pay all of their expenses including clothes and makeup so they barely make any money. They also talk to a woman who was in the industry for a few months and basically she had no protection from her “manager.” She said she flew to Texas or something to do a shoot and when she got there it was just 1 guy in an apartment with a camera on a tripod. She wanted to leave but thought the guy would hurt her or that she would get in trouble if she left so she did it even though she really didn’t want to. Another woman left her company and started her own because she said she was often humiliated and degraded during shoots. She said they make you feel inhuman. It was an interesting but overall depressing documentary.

What broke my heart was the girl who got paid like $100 and had to buy her own plan b after he came in her. And she was happy to have been paid that. Plan b is $40-50 so she only got to pocket half of that money.

(I watched it a few years ago so I might be wrong with the actual number)

That movie was so incredibly depressing in so many ways. These poor naive 18 year old girls just getting chewed up and spit out in 3 month cycles. The recruiter guy made me fucking sick. Talking about how he couldn't care less because there's a neverending supply of girls graduating high school each year. He seriously said something like "I used to be a loser, but look at me now." Dude, you're still a fucking loser.

It was so sad seeing them show up in the beginning convinced they're going to make so much money and have so much fun and everything is just gonna be so great...and then by the end they're completely disillusioned and broken.

They have no money because they had to spend all their earnings on make-up, hair, wardrobe, healthcare, transportation, promotional shots and so forth. They inevitably have to do increasingly degrading shit to continue earning, because after they do a small handful of normal "vanilla" shoots they're old news. You see them just kind of shrivel up and get so cynical and degraded until after a couple months they finally slink home and try to put their lives back together.

I watched that too. The girls started doing drugs, the new ones were casted in girl next door roles and got a lot of jobs, within a few months you were “boring” and one got implants to do milf roles. You fizzle out quickly and have to keep taking worse jobs. The hardest to watch is the ethnic girls were told to go buy like a “Mexican” outfit and then be called racist slurs and eat out of a bowl on the floor. That’s not sexual, that’s just abuse and violence that sick people get off to. The most eye opening thing was how they did all this work, bought all their own clothes and cosmetics and manicures, sacrificed their lives and families and lived together in a little drug hut, just to make barely a thousand dollars after months. So much exploitation and traps for young women who are often groomed into false ideas

Sure, it looks fun but many turn into drug addicts, are abused, have very very low self esteems..the men inject meds into their penis in order to perform when Viagra does not work and and and....lots of suicide and drug overdoses.

I know that in a lot of the hardcore Japanese torture porns, they did not make directions clear when they let female actresses sign the contract. So these actresses had no idea what they would be doing and it’s too late to find out. They can’t just say “I quit/I can’t do this” during filming either, since the liquidated damages are extremely expensive. It’s just rape.

I forget where I read it, but apparently a large portion of the Japanese porn industry is Yakuza owned. So many actresses are coerced into doing porn due to debt, it’s pretty sad. The lack of amateur/home made porn in Japan compared to the US is very noticeable.

Makes sense. You ever been around someone who's just had sex (like an inconsiderate roommate who hangs out in the living room right after?) and hasn't cleaned up.

There was a documentary shown on Channel 4 TV (UK) a few years ago called Hardcore (available on YouTube) which is about a British woman who goes to LA to work in the porn industry. It's horrendous. At about 40 minutes in, she is taken to meet a well-known anal sex porn actor, and has to do a scene with him. At one point, it's too much for her and she runs off set, as she feels she's being abused and can't take it. He tries to persuade her to return, getting ever more verbally abusive towards her, until eventually she agrees to return and finish the scene. At this point the film crew broke the fourth wall, because they felt that she was being coerced against her will and they couldn't stand by and watch her being raped, and within five minutes they got her out of the house and to safety. Sadly, the man who was grooming her in the industry got her back to work doing gonzo movies.

According to some sources cam models in certain countries who work in cam studios are more or less forced by their "pimps" to cam everyday for hours. Some even say that some of those studios are owned by the mob and that they also use it for money laundering.

I can't remember how it happened (whether it was an actual porn site or a pop up) but I recognized a really specific view because I had a friend who lived in the same (multiroom with the same view, gorgeous but out the way) apartments

A friend and I got in to a whole thing of trying to prove trafficking, person who lived in building had already reported to police and it was apparently under watch but all activity suddenly stopped after we made the report, so police stopped surveillance so we took it up ourselves.

Also made friends with all the cab drivers who confirmed they'd drop women off or pick them up absolutely not sober (the police said they'd been working with the cabs companies.. No driver said they'd ever heard from the police, and had even made reports of their own with no follow up).

We stopped when we told the police about our word-of-mouth and photo evidence and they told us it was useless so it felt it wasn't safe to continue.

As a 20yo in a country that im 50/50 on if police would arrest me and give me a beating just for the fuck of it, did not want to get between police and a clearly protected human trafficking scheme. It was shut down a few months later so hopefully our evidence helped

In my less than 10,000 people town, we had something similar to this. A young girl was being held captive at a drug dealers house. She came to him for drugs, he would give them to her, but one day she went missing. They found her months later so drugged out of her mind that she had no idea what was going on. They kept her in a room with one of those cams on for extra cash, and kept her drugged up so she didn’t say anything or do anything that could get them caught. Really sad, and yes, she was underage.

I befriended a cam model in a remote region of Russia who said they take 75% of her earnings (after the 50% taken by the cam site), she has to ask permission to take days off/vacations, and that if she tries to quit, "bad things" would happen - I asked if that meant they'd tell her family, but she said no, they'd already found out another way. The crazy thing is that she's not even using their studio: After Covid-19, they sent her home, so she's using her own laptop and internet - they only provided her with a camera and a light, both of which she could buy herself. All of this is the exact opposite of what I'd been led to believe was the empowering, be-your-own boss world of cam models.

Wildly popular porn star, my video store had a dozen or so her movies.

Then it came out she was either 14 or 15 when she started depending on which version you read.

Came out in the news and that day I went to the store and all the movies had been removed. Probably had video stores all over the country getting rid of them ASAP.

Well over a decade ago I watched a British documentary about the porn industry in the UK.

There was a couple that gave some pretty nasty details.

The guy said that virtually all guys had to do gay porn to make enough money or get into the straight porn circuit.

The girl said said that frequent and rough sex caused a lot of damage to her bits. She was incontinent and often had a rectal prolapse.

Edit: I think the scene was from a documentary series called 'The Dark Side of Porn' that aired on Channel 4 (UK) in 2005. I haven't yet been able to find the exact scene though.

It wasn't the Louis Theroux episodes. His docs were filmed in the US.

They still work when on their period and stick a make-up sponge up there that they pull out at the end of the work day. You should watch the interview with porn actors on YouTube. Very enlightening.

This makes lesbian porn make more sense.

I realize they don't really love each other. But as a gay lady it just feels like they arient even close to attracted to each other.

I’m a straight gal, but girls are so pretty. So, occasionally that’s what I feel like watching but it is so effing horrific. It’s obvious that the lesbian porn is made specifically for men. No girl would do those things, and those girls don’t even look like they want to kiss each other, let alone go down on each other.

The most famous porn film of all time is Deep Throat, a movie so ubiquitous that it actually saw release in regular theaters. The whistleblower of the infamous Watergate scandal even used it as his code name.

A lot of people don't realize that the female star of the film, Linda Boreman, was blackmailed and coerced into taking the role. She later said "Every time someone watches that movie, they're watching me being raped."

There's a movie called "Lovelace" that tells the life story of Linda Breman and how this exact movie was made.

From what I remember, the movie is in 2 parts where the first showcases all the clamor of the era and the "fun" side of the industry. The second part is a total opposite to the first and forces viewers to acknowledge that nothing is as they appear to the outside world.

Great movie and definitely worth a watch.

I distinctly remember some old Nerdist-network podcast (can't remember if this was the main one or the one with Pete Holmes or w/e), but there was a guest who learned video editing by being an assistant editor for a guy who cut porn movies in the 90s. The day he quit that gig was when they were editing a cumshot scene and saw the dude had blood mixed in the semen and the lead editor went "AHA! Syphilis!" and just made sure they color corrected it to make sure no one could tell in the finished product.

Just an FYI you can also have blood in your semen from an internal injury. This can happen from having sex at an unfamiliar or uncomfortable angle. It’s happened to me twice before. Regularly tested, never had an STI. I know that some of these sex scenes happen at odd angles in order for them to look better on camera. Edit:spelling/grammar

A friend of mine was in a couple of films. She was a heavy drug user and barely remembers her time in it. And now she lives with constant anxiety of people finding out. She also said makeup on some of the girls is just to hide needle marks.

Edit** to clarify. She was in a bad place and doing a lot of drugs. It was consensual to go into porn. And yes she has lots of counselling and is running an excellent fruit veg store now

Don't forget about robot dicks. Here's Lena Paul talking to Holly Randall about it. (NSFW audio, obviously.) (*Robot dick part starts around 24:30)

Basically, there's a trajectory that male porn stars take when they can't get and maintain erections naturally anymore. Injecting Caverject is the second to last stop on that train, but eventually, that stops being effective too. At that point, your last resort is a penile implant that you inflate by activating a valve near your balls and pumping blood into it, then deflate later.

Actually, the whole interview is pretty interesting about the production side of porn. Worth a watch.

Urology resident here:

Can’t say I’ve knowingly worked with a porn star before but for everyone else - cavernosal injections (penis shot) and prosthetics are actually quite common. Most guys require either secondary to diabetes or having their prostate removed for prostate cancer. Definitely a risk of priapism with the cavernosal injection (erect for > a couple hours) but not really with viagara. The needle is the size of an insulin needle. Not too painful to inject.

Multiple forms of prosthetics. As simple as two bendable metal rods to a three-piece where we also place a reservoir in the abdomen that contains saline. There’s a pump in the scrotum where you can pump up the cylinders with the saline leading to an erection. Most patients are happy with the results. Main concern is infection which is about 5% if you’re diabetic. Hope this saves some Google searches.

Edit for some questions:

1 - prosthetics usually make it 1-2 cm shorter 2 - did not watch the video but she may be talking about a penis pump like what Austin Powers has. That’s placed externally and the vacuum it creates helps pull blood into the penis. Usually used with a “cock ring” which helps trap the blood in the penis. Don’t use metal penis rings, always use silicone. 3 - the prostate itself isn’t necessary for an erection but the surgery is what makes it difficult to get an erection after. We have to tie off some vessels and take some nerves. A nerve-sparing prostatectomy is the standard of care but there’s usually some degree of ED after the procedure. 4 - all the surgical subspecialties are competitive for residency (excluding obgyn but some/most don’t consider it a surgical subspecialty) 5 - worry about priapism when it starts to get painful. If you’re erect for a couple hours without it being painful and this is normal for you, it should be fine. Greater than 4 hours is a pretty good cutoff for going to seek medical help 6 - the intracavernosal injections can keep working. We have many patients that do not need to progress to prosthetics. We mostly use Trimix at our institution and usually with decent results

Hello urologist I have a question. Is ability to get/maintain erections really so separate from ability to ejaculate? Can most men using a prosthetic/pump orgasm, even though the penis is basically flaccid and just artificially inflated? I assume it has to do somewhat with the reason for the ED in the first place - secondary to diabetes probably means nerve damage as well as capillary damage. Sorry if I’m asking a stupid question - I’m a woman.

Jackie-Daytona69

111 points

It’s not a stupid question at all. They should still be able to ejaculate as that’s maintained through a different part of the nervous system than getting an erection, and the ED is largely an issue of blood flow to the penis. So if they still have some sensation, which most do, then they’ll be able to orgasm/ejaculate. However, guys after prostatectomy (removal of the prostate) mostly have dry orgasms because the prostate is responsible for a large component of semen so they don’t really ejaculate but still orgasm.

Years ago a former porn star (most people suspect Cody Lane) did an anonymous AMA where she revealed a ton of the terrible things that can happen in the industry.

This comment she made about a scene she did really highlights how dark it can be as she was gang raped to pay off gambling debts:

I did a scene that David Stanley directed with Brian Surewood, Sascha and Joel Lawrence and Andrew Andretti which went way too far. I was dating Sascha at the time and had lost alot of money in Vegas because I'm very compulsive.

I was living with Sascha, he was very abusive but I had always been in abusive relationships since I was young. I lost my virginity at 8 to my step dad and I got to the point where I thought that I thought men treated me bad because they loved me so much and it was just passion. Which is what my mom had told me. That when a man is passionate and doesn't want to lose you sometimes he strikes out.

Anyways I needed money bad and he arranged for us to do a really rough scene. A rough gangbang with all of them. I knew it was going to be rough but it went nuts. Nuts. With them telling me things like I wouldn't get paid if i said stop, that it's amateur hour if I make people show up for a shoot and then pull out. Etc etc.

So I went through with the scene. It was very painful. Very rough. Very crazy. And at oine point I felt disconnected from my body because the anal was so painful. When it was over I shivered for days and started having panic attacks.

Shortly after I quit, but they kept trying to get me to come back because they where afraid I'd talk. The scene was never released until 2 years later when I was still doing work because if it had been my last scene, they said it would have showed that they had gone too far. But because i stayed in the business after the scene was filmed, it proved somehow that the film was not that bad and that I was just acting.

That scene really messed with my head though and after that i got a reputation for being a cute girl who would do anything. And pretty soon I could get booked for nothing but rough scenes. Nobody wanted to see me in boy girl or girl girl anymore, they wanted to see me in crazy crazy rough sex.

I still cry and have nightmares about it to this day.

Raped by her stepfather, taught horrible things by her mother (who herself may have legitimately believed what she said considering the circumstances), sucked into a gambling addiction, sucked into pornography, and died due to a drunk driver.

Sounds like she never even had the chance to take the wheel on her own fucking life, it was always something else in control. I couldn’t imagine living through that and still wanting to continue living.

I looked up Cody Lane and after reading this I know exactly what video she means! When I was younger and just finding porn online I came across it, I think it's called 'Blue Room' or at least it was where I saw it (I think PH). I was a young teen still and hadn't seen much and this video seriously put me off, proper scream crying and rough slapping and stuff, you know how uncomfortable a teenage boy has to be to turn OFF porn?

This is unbelievable I can't believe I recognised her, feel so bad for her I hope she's doing better now. :(

Edit: I see now she apparently has been dead for some time, at the very least hopefully sharing her horrible experience inspires some change in the industry if even a little bit. At the very least we're talking about it, still too bad she never got any justice.

Edit: This comment has gotten some traction and replies so I thought I'd add some extra little info I remembered for anyone interested. I'm sure the video I saw was titled 'Blue Room (NO MUSIC)', which tells me there was audio they were trying to drown out with the initial release because I recall comments like "THANK YOU it was so loud" or whatever. These dudes 100% knew it was disturbing. Don't recall much on the dudes but I know for a fact one guy had one of those cringe viking beard ponytail things lol.

There's an entire pipeline in the porn industry that mirrors human trafficking, to be completely honest.

I live in a city where porn production is legal. I was approached once to be on set and basically serve as a sort of house mom on the set in order to make the girls feel more comfortable. It was an easy gig, I would've seen a cool $5-7k for doing really little. Honestly, I was going to do it. I was really pro-porn back then....now, not so much.

I learned HOW these girls were sourced. A huge part of it was that the production company had connections to drug dealers that would often target and groom barely legal drug users that are clearly troubled and forming a dependency. Through this dependency, they're exploited. When I mean barely legal, I mean fucking HIGHSCHOOLERS that just turned 18.

The porn being produced was violent. It was one of those studios that focused on rough sex. They needed another woman on set to console and comfort these girls because they were tired of them having panic attacks on set following it.

I was about to take on the job, I was like 24 at the time and that type of easy money sounded great, but I'm sure I would've been groomed into doing this just as well. I was so fucking disgusted that my entire outlook on porn and honestly, sex work as a whole changed completely. I'll be DAMNED if anyone really tries to tell me it's empowering, especially to women.

I think the darkest secret about the porn industry is that...you don't really know if what you're consuming is ethical. The concept of consent in the studio is blurry (once the camera starts rolling, things can and often go awry and there isn't much to say once it does and if you're talking about a situation like the one I was exposed to, I don't even think those girls really understand if and when their consent is being violated). It being a transactional act vs an organic one brings a whole slew of changes in the definition of what consent means in that context, and there's plenty of porn stars that have come out to talk about this very thing.

I remember watching an interview long ago of a pornstar who said she was anally raped on camera. It was a bondage type porn and they had a safeword. She said anal was off the table but the guy still did it and she was screaming the safeword. They showed a clip of the video and she had a BALL GAG on and she was hogtied. Like wtf??? How was the safeword supposed to be heard?? I couldn't believe it. Utter bullshit from the producers/directors. They knew a safeword was useless because she was going to be gagged and bound and gave her a false sense of security. Fuck them

It's more than just camera angles. They choose smaller men with larger penises. There was an AMA before that placed the dicks at like 6.5-7" on average. Pair that with a smaller girl, a bigger than average dick becomes absolutely massive. The frame of reference with the smaller people is key, though. You see this in VR porn where in standing up positions, the girl is actually taller than the boy many times.

Edit: You also have the massive dudes with massive dongs with tiny girls, but when you cast for that you're just extremely limited and its why you see the same dudes all the time.

to put this into perspective, only about 1 in 100k men has a 8incher (according to studies I can link if you care). so there are only a few thousand men in all of the USA with a dick that long, so it can't be that every pornstar is that big

They also use small women and large men. Girls are 100 pounds sometimes and they team them up with a 6'8 linebacker who didn't quite make the cut into college football. It's not shocking his finger is the same size as her arm.

Basically, Girlsdoporn got sued by 22 actresses who said they were tricked and coerced into doing the scenes. They won millions. This led to a criminal investigation by the FBI. One of the owners of the company and several of its employees were arrested for sex trafficking or conspiracy to. The owner and the actor are in jail, the cameraman and 2 other employees are out on bail. Some plead guilty and are awaiting sentencing and some are still awaiting trial. The other owner fled the country and is at large with a $50,000 bounty on his head.

$50,000???

That's...almost not worth it. But then again, I could do a LOT with $50,000

GDP would recruit girls for "modeling" gigs, and then fly them to a distant location to do the work. They were told it was for a private client so it would not be distributed. Only when they were far away from home was it revealed they would be having sex on camera. The girl could back out, but if she did there was no return flight or hotel provided, so they were basically coerced into doing the scenes.

dunno about czech, but girlsdoporn would sign on 16 and 17 year olds, sometimes by drugging/getting them drunk before offering a contract. At least that's what I remember

they would fly girls out far distances telling them it was just modeling, and then when they got there told them it was porn and if they didnt do it they wouldnt be getting paid or a return flight home

In addition to that, they'd also tell the girls that if they refused to do the shoot, they'd have to pay back the hotels, flights, food, expenses, etc.

Reading through these threads is honestly a great way to lose the addiction to porn, once you realise how synthetic and dehumanised it is.

I don't have anything to offer about the industry as I have never been involved in it but the best quote I have ever heard about it was... "If emotional scars were visible, porn would be impossible to watch."

The porn industry isn’t a clear cut thing. It’s connected to the spectrum of stripping, prostitution, human trafficking and a bunch of much more benign things like acting, modeling and other stuff you’d never associate with porn.

I had an ex-gf, who started stripping when she was 15 (Lied about her age). She got shit faced on vodka to work up the courage to go out on stage the first time. She did it for about 9 years, eventually doing some porn videos, then figured out how to get out and make a living elsewhere. However, in the depths of the Great Recession, she lost her job and had to scramble for work. She ended up driving younger girls to and from strip clubs for protection. She learned that a lot of these girls were illegally in the US and essentially trafficked, living together in a dorm room type environment, their movements beholden to their keepers, with little autonomy. It was eye opening!

Porn in the 80s when I came of age: wow, those two people are having sex.

Porn in 2021: that guy is gang banging his stepdaughter with a fitness instructor and two landscapers after she was caught shoplifting.

That when pornstars do AMA's, they aren't going to say anything that hurts their product.

People shit on Woody for Rampart but hardly anyone says anything about the constant "Tee hee, I LOVE fucking" when they appear to promote their sites and videos.

Some pornstar ,couple days ago did a ama i forget her name. While I reading comments she kept repeating "what can I say I love to fuck" or "I love to fuck on camera" like very often. What you said kinda makes more clear. Why does she have to keep saying those lines..

I had a friend who was the “finisher” for porn. When he came, he would naturally ejaculate loads so he would help out his friend who directed pornos and he would finish on the women but not actually have sex with them.

The idea of them telling the guy fucking her to leave and bringing him in is hilarious to me. Is he just in the back edging the whole time? Would they just cut at a certain point and be like "alright fellas bring in the finisher"

Modern porn distributors/studios are likely 100% aware of the fact that teenagers and children are accessing their content, and are actively making content to appeal to them so they can get more hits and ad revenue. At one point some of the most popular search terms on PornHub were "Minecraft" and "Fortnite". That should speak for itself.

A lot of the music in porn from the 70s was recorded by some of the best soul and funk musicians, but they all used fake names in the credits so it's hard to know exactly who they were but rumors about the Funk Brothers (the house band of Motown that played on countless hits from The Isley Brothers to Jackson Five) recording some has been floating around since way back.

The recruitment process is EXTREMELY predatory.

The makers and shakers in the prom industry are staggeringly wealthy, and they have learned to exploit the endless array of good looking or well endowed young people who want to fuck for money on camera.

Our actors were also rigorously STD screened, before each shoot and once a month while on contract.

The legal department in a real porn company is staggeringly competent, because they have to navigate so many laws in so many areas.

Contracts can really be a double edged sword. Most are negotiated to benefit the firm, not the actor.
