The Dark Side of the Porn Industry

0

According to covenanteye.com’s porn statistics, there have been 600,440,991, and counting, online searches for porn since 2014.  The porn industry makes between 10 and 14 billion dollars in annual sales. As quoted from the Huffington Post, “porn sites get more visitors than Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter combined.” But, would users still find porn desirable if they knew the disgusting, vile things that happen behind the camera?

Porn is not as simple as two people having sex on camera for money. Female porn stars are usually manipulated, abused, and raped. Women become porn stars believing it will give them a ‘glamorous’ life. In reality, it doesn’t. The women become emotionally numb and most of the times turn to hard drugs for comfort.

It’s also not uncommon for porn stars to be threatened into doing scenes. The girls will go to the set, expecting to do one thing, then get told they’re doing something else last minute. And the worst part is if they don’t do it, they won’t get paid. The ‘something else’ they’re being told to do last minute is usually something violent, that the women aren’t comfortable with. Ex-porn star, Linda Lovelace, said, “they were playing musical chairs with my body.”

Another thing to be aware of is the fakeness of it all. The men you see in porns are on steroids. Their erections aren’t natural either, it’s Viagra. Porn users don’t see all the sick things that happen behind the cameras. All the dark secrets are hidden behind a well-edited film.

If you’re having a hard time believing all of this, there are lots of ex-porn stars’ testimonies to back me up. Here are a few of the many.

  • Jessie Summers- “I also did a scene where I was put with male talent that was on my no list. I wanted to please them so I did it. He put his foot on my head and stepped on it while he was doing me from behind. I freaked out and started bawling; they stopped filming and sent me home with reduced pay.”
  • Andi Anderson- “After a year or so of that so-called “glamorous” life, I sadly discovered that drugs and drinking were a part of the lifestyle. Before long, I turned into a person I did not wan to be. After doing so many hardcore scenes I couldn’t do it anymore.”

Overall, porn is not what’s it’s cracked up to be. By watching it you’re supporting the disgusting acts that carry on behind the cameras. Unfortunately, the chances of pornography coming to an end are slim, but you can help yourself by not watching it.
