When Belle Knox, a 19-year-old Duke University student, was “outed” as a p0rn star years back, the conversation spread far beyond Duke’s campus.
A flurry of tabloid reporting placed Knox at the center of a media firestorm, where she was the subject of fascination, scorn, public shaming and threats.
Eloquent, educated, entrepreneurial and willing to speak her mind, Knox published public replies to her detractors, but even those replies were met with skepticism and scorn.
But the question is why are these people getting into p0rn?
This is a question I have been meaning to ask people here on nairaland. Have you ever wondered why p0rn and nud1ty sells? Even here on NL?
To move the conversation about women in po0Rn beyond slut-shaming and stereotypes, two p0. rn stars and one former porn star spoke to the Huffington Post about their careers, the process. rn industry and the public’s misconceptions about what it’s like to get paid to have £3x.
Stage Name: Stoya
Profession(s): P30rn star and author
Why she started doing porn: “It sounded like fun.” Stoya’s first 3r0t1c photoshoot was an experiment: Her then-roommate took topless photographs for a living. After that, erotic modeling became a hobby: “I was a personal assistant for a guerrilla marketer in Philadelphia at the time. And in my free time I would go and people would pay me to take pictures of me.” A p0rn0 production company that purchased some of her photos eventually recruited her for a softcore DVD.
What she likes about her job: “I get to show different sorts of ss3xualil1ty and s3cual tastes and acts in what I feel is a pretty freaking ethical and enjoyable way.”
These are questions that need answers and not you all trying to form holier than thou.
Here is another young Kenyan lady that declared openly that she's a p0rn start.
She wasn't shy about the line she's chosen to follow as a career.
