After Porn Ends – When Pornstars Retire

by Raunchy Republic Manager on June 23, 2013

After Porn EndsIf you have ever wondered about the lives of pornstars after they decide to quite the adult movie industry then you really need to watch the documentary After Porn Ends (2010). This documentary features some of the biggest names ever to come out of the pornstar ranks and their stories may surprise you.

We all tend to make assumptions about pornstars. This documentary may affirm some of those assumptions for you but it will also challenge them. Asia Carrera is one of the stars who will surprise you – she is a card carrying member of Mensa.

As with most documentaries this one delves into their lives and allows them to tell their stories. They each finish by stating their plans for the future and where their lives are going now. The documentary producers obviously followed up to see if those plans succeeded as the film ends with an update of what happened to each of them during post production.

What we found interesting were the opinions expressed regarding the regrets some felt stemming from working in the adult movie industry. Others weren’t so apologetic and look back on their time with fond memories. And yes, some are now parents and they have to deal with their children learning of their past. How would you handle knowing that one of your parents was once a pornstar?

An organisation mentioned in the documentary is the Pink Cross Foundation. This was started by former porn star Shelley Lubben who is also featured in the documentary. Their mission statement is:

Pink Cross FoundationA humanitarian outreach and international movement will respond to needs of people who are victims of pornography and sex trafficking. Our mission is to share the good news of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

While they are “faith based” and apparently very evangelical they do work hard on helping pornstars leave the industry and try to start a normal life . You can’t help but feel there is a great deal of hypocrisy from Shelley since she was never forced into the porn industry and happily accepted payment for her performances in adult movies. Still, she wants to help and some stars seem to want that help so there is no harm in what they are doing.
