    Default Ex-Porn Star Reveals the Horrors of Working in the Sex Industry

    Ex-porn star Vanessa Belmond left behind a years-long career in adult entertainment, and is hoping to help others do the same.

    The 25-year-old, who performed under the name Alexa Cruz, has become an anti-pornography advocate to spread awareness of the dangers perpetuated by the adult film business. Belmond is so devoted to the cause that she volunteers with AntiPornography.org, a group that fights the porn industry.

    In a profile published on the organization’s website, the former adult actress said that she started working in the industry when she was 18. She decided to quit in March after she realized the emotional and physical toll the job was taking on her.

    “I am now volunteering for AntiPornography.org and supporting their vitally important mission by speaking out against the devastating harms of pornography, prostitution, stripping, and related forms of sexual exploitation and abuse,” she said.

    Belmond recently shared her story on the British television show titled “Date My Porn Star,” a program hosted by three porn fans examining the industry. In it, Belmond explained the lasting impact her former career will have on her life.

    “Nobody really wants to date a porn star, stripper or escort. Also the whole family thing and having kids, I’m like ‘who’s gonna have kids with an ex-porn star,’” Belmond said, according to the Christian Post. “And even when I’m 60 I’m still gonna have this porn on the Internet. It’s like having a virus or something that never goes away.”

    Watch her discuss it below



    Belmond shared that she was infected with chlamydia numerous times. She said she once had gonorrhea and has had to repeatedly fight off bacterial infections. Belmond also gave graphic details, many too explicit to describe here, about injuries from sex acts she performed on shoots. Some scenes left her with tearing and bleeding and required heavy pain medication to endure.

    In a separate interview with AntiPornography.org, Belmond described her experience sharing her story with ”Date My Porn Star.” Her passion for advocacy was evident, and the show’s hosts – Jonathan, Kevin and Danny — were visibly moved by the former adult star’s story.



    Belmond’s story comes after another ex-porn star, Brittni Ruiz, denounced the industry earlier this year and announced she had become a Christian. She’s now speaking out as well about how her life has changed since leaving porn.

    Like Belmond, Ruiz has said that the experience was damaging

    It was so terrible that she stayed in it for 7 years...

    Look, I'm sure it is not pleasant, but you can't be sure either if these people are looking to extend their career after the porn career is basically done.

    Alexa Cruz

    Mini Biography
    A sizzling new addition to the pornographic community, Alexa Cruz has been off to a promising start. Amazingly pretty-faced with hair alternating between shades of brown and auburn, Alexa began her career in 2007. Her enthusiasm for sex is equal to her energetic and passionately-driven performances as shown in generally every film she has appeared in. Her film appearances are strongly rooted in interracial and all-black productions. Admittedly she loves all aspects of sex and her fans can expect to see Alexa in almost any and every kind of scene and scenario imaginable. With roughly 30 films to her credit and nearly half-a-decade of experience in the industry, the future of Alexa Cruz is shining brightly.

    I have no sympathy. Nobody forces these women to do this for a living. And yes when you're 60, you still have to live with the fact that you did porn. Most of us have regrets in life we live with, makes you who you are.

    Plus, I think women get paid more than men, and I'm sure they have control over what they do and what type of scenes they do. This woman is probably getting all uppity after her "prime" was over with.

    Do you hear Sasha Grey getting all uppity? I'm pretty sure she quit and she did about everything you can do. I'm sure she would probably tell you that it was all her doing also.

    Didn't Linda Lovelace pull all of this same stuff back in the day?

    Oh come on. Where is the adventure with journalists and the puns they LOVE to use in headlines.

    Shouldn't it read "Ex-porn star reveals the whorrors of working in the sex industry?"

    I lose sympathy when this woman says that she stayed in the business 7 + years. I'm sure these girls are naive when they break into the business at 18 or 19 years old, but this woman stayed well after that.

    Uppity? She was approached by some Brits to take part in a documentary. Like that business is full of decent people . I have no skin in this game so i could care less. I just thought it was interesting.

    A lot of them were broken or damaged in some way before they began.

    I doubt it is much different than turning to a bottle or a needle or any other form of destructive behavior, in an attempt to deal with some kind of pain. Some are running from bad home situations, often including sexual abuse. Some just want approval or some form of love or adoration. They walk in with absolute boundaries and one by one, the boundaries fall away. Apparently it is something that is hard to walk away from, perhaps much like spousal abuse. Most women who get their ass kicked by a lover stick around to have it happen again. It's easy to say "why don't you just leave", but there has to be some dark psychological reason why they don't.

    If it's so bad, and I believe it is...there has to be a reason beyond sheer stupidity for them to continue. It isn't because they "really love sex".

    I'm not saying that the porn biz is full of great people... But my heart is not bleeding when I hear her "story".
