Hello Lovers!
Everyone has occupational hazards , no matter how glamorous or fantastic it may be. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Oh yeah, Venus, it’s torture to have sex with hot men and women all day, the constant orgasms must be torture.’ Well, looks can be deceiving at times. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, but , yes, even being a porn star has its own set of pros and cons and I am going to share my personal lists with you.

Pros

Your dating pool expands overnight
It really is an incredible perk of the business; constant access to hot, well hung bodies that will understand what you really do for a living is an asset for sure. True, I am still looking for Mr. Right and it is a challenge but I meet a fantastic group of potentials at the office.

You get gifts
Whether it’s a prominent fan or an adult industry manufacturer. You get stuff. Cool stuff. I am truly blessed because I have romantic fans. Flowers, clothes, jewelry, and art. I seriously receive the most amazing stuff. I not only receive some of the most fabulous sex gear, but I also get to try out the latest and greatest toys before they even hit the marketplace.

Name recognition
Whether it be an upgrade to an amazing suite at a fine hotel or jumping the line at an exclusive club, being a porn star has its privileges. I get comp’d. A lot. And it is sweet.

Globe trotting
Do you like sex and travel? Then being a porn star is definitely up your alley. I have been places and exposed to cultures I would never have known about because of my career. You definitely get a good view of the world in this profession.

Cons

Your dating pool expands overnight
But now everybody wants you and I mean everybody. Online stalkers, real life unwanted attention and being hunted in some kind of creepy “how many porn stars can I bang?” contest are among my personally experienced scenarios. All that exposure can leave you feeling, well, exposed. It’s hard to find a quality man in a sea of mediocrity.

More perks than cash
Sure, you get cool perks and have a blast but turning a buck ain’t easy, especially if you are new in the scene. You have to work your way to the upper echelon if you are going to turn some coin, especially in the TS world. I am really thankful I was born with a natural ability to market myself and have built a successful empire because of it. Booking the gig and performing isn’t enough. If you aren’t business savvy in the Industry you can severely limit your earning potential.

Plastic people
It really is hard to know who likes you for you. There are people trying to get ahead in the Industry and they will use you as a stepping stone to do it. The Industry is full of men who profess to have feelings for you, but are only looking for the arm candy or a one night stand. I’m all for fun, glamour and surface as long as it’s disclosed, but when you are a porn star it can be hard to tell who loves you for being you at the end of the day.

You’re not really a celebrity
You are a celebrity of sorts, just in a parallel universe. You aren’t demanding multi-million dollar contracts and on screen opposite a star studded cast. You get all the notoriety without the Swiss bank account. If I were as rich as everyone thought I was…..sigh….

But in the end it’s all good. I travel the world, meeting interesting and exciting people and get to bask in the adoration and love of millions of amazing fans. Pretty damn good for a girl from San Francisco who has wide eyed goals and  big dreams. Pretty damn good and getting better every day.

XOX,
V.
