I find it funny that I would be addressing this topic in an actual publication, but it seems as though people want to try to use my background as a Porn Actress against me when they get mad, jealous, or angry; as a tool to try to insult me and put me down when it comes to my politics and views even though I have addressed this openly and publicly numerous times before in social media and in publications!
The whole thing seems very childish to me, as most people who try to use my background against me are either jealous, the biggest hypocrites, or have skeletons in their closet as well! They are usually ones who post pictures of themselves in bikini’s or scantily clad, post pics of others (male and female) scantily clad, drunken idiots, or holier than thou folks! I have NEVER made the claim of being a perfect person! In fact, if you didn’t know this little tidbit…. There are no perfect people in this world today; everyone sins in one way or another at one point in time. If you are looking for the perfect person, you will have to wait for the second coming of Christ so you may be waiting a while!
Most people who resort to this method act as if I have intentions on running for a major political office (which I have stated numerous times I am not interested in) or as if I were already a Senator, Congresswoman, or POTUS in need of being taken down! MYLANTA people! Just because I’m very vocal , opinionated, and have a sense of humor; does not mean I shouldn’t be able to have an opinion or speak my mind like everyone else because of a choice I made in my 20’s (and by the way, I am currently 40 years of age at this time)! People do grow up and people do change! It happens everyday believe it or not!
***A Brief Overview of My Adult Entertainment Life***
I entered the Adult Entertainment Industry as a Dancer aka Stripper when I was around 19 years of age. I was living on my own, paying my own way through college, and needed a job that would allow me to still attend school, study, and make money at the same time. Between the ages of 19 and 20 I was engaged, but it didn’t work out and I ended up being a single mother on my own. Stripping allowed me to work, continue my education, and be at home with my child all at the same time. Most people didn’t even know about my Stripping Career as I lived very “conservatively” outside of my work.
It was later at the age of 25 (1999) that I entered into the Adult Movie Industry. I had met my husband (who was also a Stripper at the time) and we had 6 children all together when our families were combined. We had friends already in that part of the industry, so it was very easy for us to get into at a higher billeted slot with major companies. At the time, it seemed to make more sense to make more money, work fewer hours, and spend more time with family at home. Again, same scenario! We were both still very conservative in our personal lives outside of work!
At that time we would commute to California for work, stay a few days, shoot our scenes, get paid, and come home. It was just a job to me, not who I was as a person. Work stayed separate from our private lives. We didn’t stay in the Porn World long. We didn’t care too much for that part of the industry, as most entertainers lived it as a lifestyle instead of it being just a job. In fact the last time I actually was on set and shot a film was in 2001. What most people fail to realize is: Anything afterward 2001 on my profile are actually compilations of old scenes that were sold to other companies later on, so the release dates look more current as they are published by the release date of the new companies film!
What many people don’t know is that not all of the Adult Industry Movie Companies are the same, and everyone’s experiences in that world (just like in the “regular world jobs” are different! Most of the horror stories you hear are stemming from the lower end producers, amateur porn companies, hit and run companies, and people calling themselves companies that are actually dealing in Prostitution and the Sex Slave Trade. The Major Companies that I worked for (such as Vivid, Elegant Angel, Evil Angel, and others) actually pretty well-regulated and require STD Testing every 28 to 30 days (which you pay for on your own through accredited companies such as AIM). If you do not have your up to date test you do not shoot your scene! (which makes it a lot safer than picking up a one-night-stand in a bar or other location). If you were high, drunk, or couldn’t do your job, you were sent home without pay! Most people think that all Strippers and Porn People do drugs! I didn’t do drugs back then and I still don’t to this very day!
There was no hanky panky on our sets it was all very professional, and we all did our jobs and went home. We as Adult Movie Actors and Actresses also have to show 2 forms of identification (social security card and drivers license) and are required to fill out W-9’s and/or W-2’s (depending on if you are a Contract Entertainer working full-time for a company or an Independent Contractor) and even pay taxes (unlike many people in the “regular” world)! Taxes are taken directly out of our checks just like any other job! The Industry also requires all actors to wear condoms for safety as well. The official law known as Measure B was passed in 2012, but most of the bigger companies were already practicing it. Are there screw-ups, bad things occurring, and horrible things happening in the Adult Entertainment Industry on the whole? YES! Is there drug and alcohol abuse and rape, YES! BUT…. The same thing occurs in the “real world”, even in our US Military and Government (that’s not an excuse either, it’s just fact)! I can only tell you about my personal experience in the Industry!
I have always been very open about my background as an Adult Entertainer, in fact I have written about it in other publications and my own Personal Facebook Page, Public Figure Page, and Entertainment Page numerous times! I also have no problem talking about my career when people private message me their questions as well! Everything is public, online, and easily accessible these days, so it’s not like it’s been buried or lost like Lois Lerner’s emails or the story on Benghazi! I can even be found on IMDb (the Internet Movie Data Base) and many other Public Websites if you really feel like digging! It is not a big secret that I keep hidden nor talk about! I have always answered question openly and honestly when it comes to my background. I also speak out against the atrocities and dangers of the Adult Entertainment Industry as often as I can as well!
People can be rude and cruel when they use a background such as mine against me. They want to keep harping on my past, yet overlook what I have done to change things, and have become in the present day! Some people have even gone as far as to tell me I was going to hell because of my past! My response to them is usually something like: “You and your hypocritical judgmental behind will get there before I do, so please save me a seat!” Lol! (I have a humorous side when it comes to this topic at times)!
I often get asked would I do things differently if I could go back in time. My answer would be NO! I have had numerous jobs and careers in my life and the Adult Entertainment Industry was just one of them! My past is what has made me the person I am today, and I wouldn’t change that for the world! What I do find very interesting is that; people will accept a Clergyman or a POTUS who has done and/or sold drugs, a Professional Athlete, Musician, Senator or Congressmen who has committed anywhere between domestic violence, fraud, and being a racist Klan Member and Dragon to murder; easier than they will accept someone who has an Adult Entertainment Career in their past!
For those people who want to continue to judge a person by their past without really knowing where they’ve been, who they are as a person, and where they are now in life; go right ahead! By all means keep being hypocritical and judgmental! Your opinions of me don’t pay my bills! In fact, I feel sorry for you! Not only are you only making yourselves look ignorant, you may be missing out on some of the best friends you ever could have had!
Oh and by the way….
If you’re going to come after me calling me a Hoe or any other various slang terms, please know that doesn’t phase me anymore! Also make sure you yourself don’t fit the definition as well! If memory serves me correctly, it is better to be a Plain Hoe rather than a Dumb Hoe! Lol! People (both male and female” are Hoe’s everyday in this life, it’s to what degree of a Hoe you are! Lol! “Regular People” go to clubs and various other places to pick up others, buy drinks and gifts, play on dating sites, etc… in order to get one to sleep with another. In essence that is still being paid for sex if you really look at it! The only difference between an Adult Entertainer and a “Regular Person” is the Adult Entertainer is getting paid a lot more, whereas a lot of “Regular Folks” are receiving way less in return or pumping it out for free! “Don’t hate the player, hate the game”! #RealTalk Lol!
