The entertainment industry is for tough people. It takes a lot of patience, hard work and putting up with people’s shit on a daily basis. Yes, of course, there is hard work and sweat, more than what a normal job demands. But there is another ugly side too. In an industry like porn, it is not always plain and simple.

For women, it is more so and probably the worst. From sexual harassment to verbal as well as physical abuse, women go through a lot.

What goes on behind those scenes is quite a contrast to what we are fed with.

Here is some proof of that. These 10 popular ex-porn performers tells us the bitter truth behind their most famous scenes:

1. Alex

Alex revealed that one of the scene she did was the most brutal and scary. Her co-actor in the scene had a natural hatred towards women and was known for being brutal. During this particular scene, he had worn his solid gold ring the entire time and continued to punch Alex with it. Because of the unbearable pain Alex had to actually stop the scene while it was still being filmed.

3. Jessi

Jessi recalls the most degrading, embarrassing and horrible thing that happened to her while working as a porn star. She was shooting an interactive DVD which takes several hours of shooting time while she was running a fever of 104. She cried and pleaded but her agent would not let her go. In fact she even had to do a scene with someone on her ‘no list’. Jessi freaked out and started bawling at which point they stopped filming and sent her home, albeit with reduced pay as they could not shoot the whole scene.

4. Andi

Andi says that the so called ‘glamorous life’ of porn lead her down to the road of drugs, uncontrollable drinking and even depression. She discovered that these were part of the lifestyle and that after doing several hardcore scenes, she couldn’t do it anymore. She ultimately quit after being in horrible situations and experiencing extreme bouts of depression, being alone and sad.

5. Regan

Regan recalls an incident where during the filming one particular scene, she couldn’t breathe. She was being repeatedly hit and choked. Despite her protests and evident upsetting plight, the crew did nothing. They kept filming even when she asked them to turn off the camera and they kept going.

6. Anita

Anita says she get herself tested once a month for HIV as she has been a performer for the adult film industry in many countries and states. It was during one of these visits that Anita got to see those performers that nobody knows about—that nobody claims that got HIV. The horrible truth and the sheer size of such cover ups shocked her.

7. Jan Meza

Jan Meza, who now works for the Pink Cross Foundation for spreading awareness about harms of the pron industry and helps other porn artists get out of its claws, says that she was forced to whatever the producer said and accept it without protest or there would be no pay. She admits lying to her fans about living a fantasy life and making it seem like she loved it all, which was far from the truth.

8. Jessie

10. Genevieve

Genevieve says that the abuse and degradation she faced as a porn star was rough. On one occasion, she reveals being bathed in sweat and in deep pain. It was a horrific experience and her body was unbearable pain because of which, she says, she was irritable the entire day. However, the director was immune to all this, not caring how she felt and only wanted to finish the video.

Reading through all their experiences, we can best sum up the entire facade as “All That Glitters is Not Gold”. Next time we envy the stars and their so called wonderful life, we should definitely think twice.
