Warning from a former porn star

Former porn star “Bree Olson” recently spoke out in the media about the difficulties she’s faced since quitting the porn industry. Her message, “Don’t get into porn!” Now before you go and rush to look her up, don’t! We can guarantee her images will be triggering if you’re struggling with porn.

In a recent YouTube video interview Bree said, “When I go out, I feel as if I’m wearing ‘slut’ across my forehead. I have really gotten to the point where there are days to weeks at time where I don’t leave the house because I don’t feel like facing the world.”

At the height of her career Bree was clearing up to $60,000 USD a month but she receives no money for her porn career now, even though her images and porn videos are still viewed countless times on the internet. “I could go back to porn today and make that — I could make $20,000 in one week if I wanted to. I don’t, because that’s how much I don’t want my photos on the internet,” she said.

And as for those photos and videos that remain, Bree says that she gets nothing. In a recent blog on the Daily Dot she summarized, “There are no royalties in porn. I see ads to this day, and my movies are everywhere on the Internet. These faceless people behind the industry still make millions and face no repercussions, and I am left to try and come up with ideas of how to have my own business because there’s not much else I can do. We are the only entertainment industry that doesn’t offer talent royalties after they are gone.”

Not only has Bree’s career choice landed her broke it’s also had massive implications on her future. “When I go out, I feel as if I’m wearing ‘slut’ across my forehead” she said online.  “I wish people would treat me like they would treat a married registered nurse with 2.5 kids in Indiana. That’s how I wish people would treat me,” she cries…. “I would be so happy.”

For us, Bree’s story highlights some of the things we don’t think about when we view porn. What’s happening on the other side of the camera? How is it affecting the lives of the porn stars? These performers are real humans. People with feelings and emotions. Smart women who are stuck in a rut. Future mothers. Somebody’s daughter. They’re a whole lot more than just images on a screen put up for viewer’s pleasure.  We have to seriously think about the implications that “free porn” is having on their lives.

Unfortunately for Bree, even after all of the pain, she still says that there’s nothing inherently wrong with porn. Something that we here at Guilty Pleasure strongly disagree with. But surprisingly so, Bree cautions young women against entering the adult film industry because of how society will treat them.

“I send a very strong message to young girls: don’t do porn. As much as you want to embrace your sexuality and say ‘I can do whatever I want with my body’, you’re going to have a life of crap in front of you. You can never work with children after you do porn, you can never work in the medical field after you do porn. These are things that teenage girls don’t think about. How people treat you for the rest of your life — it’s not worth it.”
