Porn Stars Reveal The Worst Reactions To Their Job — VIDEO

Until our culture becomes a lot less sex-negative, careers that involve sex will continue to be stigmatized. This is true particularly for women, whose morality is still tied to chastity — a notion reinforced by most major religions. In a new WoodRocket video, porn stars describe the worst reactions to their jobs that they have encountered over the years, and it gets pretty heartbreaking.

Discussions of being disowned, losing friends, and being called nasty names abound in this clip, so be warned. On the upside, a good number of performers have very few negative reactions to share, which just shows how polarizing the subject can be.

Not only can porn actors face negative attitudes from friends, family and strangers, but also corporate America. In 2014, Chase Bank shut down hundreds of accounts opened by folks in the sex industry, and other adult stars have reported issues with companies who have policies against processing adult-oriented transactions . This is a problem that is getting more and more press these days, but still needs more visibility — and the right kind, at that.

Watch this SFW video to see the kind of prejudice and acceptance porn stars have faced for their career choices:
