Adult entertainment's growth as a mega-industry in the internet era is hardly a new story. According to a 2013 Huffington Post article, 30% of all data transferred across the internet is sexually explicit in nature, with sites generating more visitors each month than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined. As a business, its existence hangs on its actors, who seem to continue emerging amidst promises of riches, a glamorous lifestyle and a window into the world of fame.
Many of those with experience in the world of adult entertainment know better. While most people have at least some awareness of the dirty, seedy underbelly of the adult film business, those involved have had to face the exploitation, unfair and abusive practices head-on and may do not get out unscathed. Horror stories from the industry include tales of coercion and rape, sexually transmitted diseases and infections and men lording their positions of power over vulnerable women.
Although the industry itself has been slow to react in an attempt to curb some of these sordid practices, those within the inner circle have continued to step forward and share their own stories. While some adult stars may indeed enjoy their profession and willingly accept their role within the framework of adult film, others have openly expressed their disenchantment with what has come to be a great professional and personal regret. Here are 10 adult actors who have openly expressed a hatred of their job:
10 Linda Lovelace
9 Jenna Jameson
8 Brenn Wynson
7 Shelley Lubben
6 Danielle Williams
5 Alexa Cruz
4 Andi Anderson
2 Ashlynn Brooke
1 Anita Cannibal
A veteran of more than 14 years of industry experience, Anita Cannibal has seen it all and probably done it all as well. She recalls an HIV crisis that rocked the business in 1998 and remembers seeing HIV-positive performers being systematically dismissed from the set so that they wouldn't be identified as actors and, thus, wouldn't count towards any damning statistics. It is hard not to respect the word of a wily, world-weary veteran when she says, "There are a lot of cover-ups going on. There is a lot of tragedy. There are a lot of horrible things."
