Erika Moen is a wonderful artist that that runs the web site "Oh Joy Sex Toy". She and her husband both review sex toys, while also illustrating stories and other things in life. She is quite the insightful person, if you haven't been following her work.

Recently, she illustrated a conversation she had with a friend of hers. She talks about receiving an invite to work with James Deen, and her hesitation to do so. It's called "Talking Porn".

She brings up a lot of interesting points. I am always fascinated by people's decision to go into porn. Media tries to paint a broad, abusive stroke, and even like minded liberals, many of whom identify as feminists, seem to want to cast stones and make generalizations towards women who decided to go into sex work,

Moen mentions "Coming Out Like A Porn Star", a book by Jiz Lee. I haven't gotten my hand on it, but I hope to very soon. 

I don't know if I have a point. Perhaps I was looking for thoughts from others?

I saw that comic awhile back, and can I just mention that I'm incredibly jealous that she got invited to shoot with James...because I love him. It had some good points though. Of course there are horror stories in the industry, and people with sorted pasts that get into porn. But you know what? That's true of literally every industry there is! Which is something I stress to people a lot. The porn industry and working in porn has the same basic makeup of any other job in any other industry out there. It's really not as different and mysterious as people make it out to be.

People ask me all the time how I got into hardcore porn and I have to tell them, "Sorry, it's not a very interesting story." And it's the same way for pretty much everyone I know. No drama, no intrigue, sorry.

I also live a fairly normal boring life outside of porn. I'm married to my partner of 8 years, I have two dogs, I've been pursuing a degree in Philosophy (and kicking ass at it btw), I have a good relationship with my family, I decorate my door with entirely too many decorations for the holidays, and most nights I'm at home watching netflix with my dogs. lol My point being of course, that for the most part, we're all just regular people. I wish people would treat us as such.

Yeah exactly was Arielle said. I'm such a boring person in real life. I watch netflix and spend time with my cat/family. I like live at my sisters house because she's more interesting hahaha. Plus she feeds me but that's a moot point.




Also- many of us porn stars (not all mind you) are like .. For lack of a better of word.. Slobs in real life xD. I don't mean like we're dirty and don't take care of ourselves. I more mean many of us spend our normal non-work days in sweatpants, no makeup, and our hair thrown into messy buns. There's a comic that perfectly describes


Only not a date- us at work xD

I also am super boring in my muggle and at home life. I work a full time job and then get a drink with friends, work on cosplay, or knock the fuck out to sleep soon as my bra hits the floor. People also seem to think my online personality is really bubbly and whatnot. I will say right now, I'm not without prior reason lol. I met a guy I've only communicated online with and he described me as cat Daria when we met IRL, even down to the voice. I can get excited for things, but most times I'm very stoic and the very definition of resting bitch face. Basically, we're normal people working a job, be it full time or part time, like everyone else.

Your online personality is more of a "Fuck you, you're awful. Also fuck you guys, you're terrible people. Also you are wrong because *source* and why is all of this bad shit happening to people in the world?"

You're pretty damn blunt... I don't see the bubbly. 

When Xoe has time I should have her reply with what her 'normal' life is... then again her explanation may be terrifying.

I think it comes from your work being more fun and entertaining than a regular 9 to 5 job, gives off the perception that your home life might also be more entertaining than our own.
