Former porn actress tells young women “Don’t do porn”

From the Independent, former porn actress Bree Olson has a message for young women, which is “Don’t do porn.”

She entered the porn industry voluntarily, but no longer wants to be a part of it. She no longer wants her pictures on the Internet and doesn’t want to be treated the way she has been treated as a porn actress. People treat her like a sex offender and believe she shouldn’t be around children.

Please watch the video of her speaking.

People should not be treating this woman as a sex offender. The real sex offenders are the pornographers who lured her into a harmful industry and abused her. The shame belongs to them. She did nothing wrong and should not be ashamed.

  1. “People treat her like a sex offender and believe she shouldn’t be around children.”

    Weird, considering that most people don’t much care whether their children watch porn … or at least don’t do much to prevent their teenage sons from watching it.
    So, their sons looking at a naked woman in a porn film is okay, but a fully clothed woman who behaves like a normal human being is suddenly dangerous? Oo

    And really, can’t people tell the difference between a porn actress and a sex offender? That’s rather disturbing. I mean, you never know, they might hear that a man raped a woman and then conclude that he’s a porn star and was just doing his job.

  2. Why is it that after all that she still has to say “there’s nothing wrong with porn” and how it can be “fun” if it ruined her life clearly there is everything wrong with porn.

    Why are those bullshit disclaimers necessary when she is telling not to do porn?

    • She’s still young and has only recently left porn, so she hasn’t had a chance to do a lot of processing yet. She obviously went into porn believing it was okay, and now she’s realized she gets treated really badly, but she is attributing this treatment to “stigma” and people being assholes, and she hasn’t realized yet that it’s the whole industry that is treating her badly and that the perpetrators are mostly men. I bet she’ll realize this in time.

      • Thanks for saying this. I was skeptical of what she was saying in the video (about the problem being stigma and not the nature of the industry itself) and it’s a relief to know you don’t agree with that aspect of it (because often people who call themselves feminists, and whose blogs I read, turn out to be funfems/ ‘woman is an identity’ fems).

        Also the interviewer is male. Males being involved in any video/project like this makes me question whether the goal is women’s liberation, or convincing people to respect women, specifically so that women aren’t discouraged from going into the pornstitution industry which ultimately benefits men (b/c even if women make a lot of money like Bree said they can, the risks and negative effects of the industry are substantial.).
