Porn Stars Stoya, Asa Akira & More on the “Damaged” Myth | Iris

published on July 2, 2020

women that choose to either like do porn

or do sex work there's this whole idea

of like you have to be being made to do

this someone's pimping you out someone's

exploiting you or like who hurt you

I think in some regards like there are

people who have been hurt but I think

that is totally isolated from their

decision to be in porn or their decision

to be in sex worked in the first place

for sure there's a stereotype of a porn

star

there's for sure that idea that comes to

your mind

I mean anyone's mind even mine before I

started and porn that you know oh if

she's in porn she must have gone through

some kind of trauma or she's a drug

addict or there must be some reason

she's doing porn that's not a love of

porn but it's not everyone's story and

it's not even most of our stories I

think it just comes with this idea that

people can't wrap their minds around a

person taking ownership of their body

and like their decisions having nothing

to do with what another person thinks it

either turns into this idea of like

exploitation or it turns into this idea

of like demonization I remember like

growing up like my family would be like

you don't want to be one of those girls

and I'm like but wait I kind of do like

I think the world doesn't like when

women are in control of their own

sexuality and I think being an

exhibitionist is definitely a part of

that a lot of society just wants us to

like not only to be like these like

timid prudish women like they want us to

want that too I said there's one thing

like I wish I knew getting into the

industry having to constantly like be

like oh yes it can be feminists oh yes

it can be ethical like having to

constantly defend the fact that porn can

be healthy and that sex is not a bad

thing

porn has given me a safe outlet to be

sexual the people that I'm working with

are tested the sets that I work on are

controlled environments when I'm on a

porn set it's kind of just like a next

mention of my regular sex life being in

the sex industry has definitely made me

more comfortable in my skin and made me

more steadfast in what my boundaries are

there's a lot of things I love about

doing porn and some of the opportunities

that it's afforded to me but one of the

coolest things I think is having done

having done adult foam now for almost 13

years I have this library of

documentation of myself sexually I have

basically a sexual scrapbook of my

sexuality over a decade of time and I

think that that is so cool it's

wonderful to be able to have an archive

of yourself

that's so explicit I often do scenes

with lovers or with people who have

crushes on so I am engaging with my

co-stars in a way that's very genuine

and very expressive also as like someone

who's an exhibitionist of like how my

body is responding sexually like what it

sounds like when I come what kind of sex

acts my body likes to do I watch every

single one of my scenes I've ever shot

there is not a single porno out there of

myself that I haven't watched beginning

to end it's kind of like keeping a diary

and then going back and reading your

entries and like reliving the memories I

like that my job is something that I

care about and something that I love to

do and something that's exciting and you

know I get to walk onto a set I get to

get my makeup done I get to feel pretty

and I get to like be part of creating

something that people are gonna enjoy as

weird as it sounds like I think the way

kids grow up thinking like I want to be

an astronaut or I want to be a doctor

like I grew up thinking I want to be a

porn star

I was always really fascinated by sex

and it's just so curious about anything

sexual and I would have regretted it if

I had never done porn like I always knew

that if I don't do porn I will forever

look back on my life and wonder like

what if
