Portrait of a Porn Star

Portrait of a Porn Star

“’I worked as a waitress as a job for a year in high school and not only did it interfere with my school where I was barely sleeping and wasn’t doing my work, but also I was making $400 a month after taxes. I felt like I was being degraded and treated like s–t. My boss was horrible to me,’ Lauren said. ‘For people to tell me that doing porn and having sex, which I love, is more degrading than being a waitress and being somebody’s servant and picking up after somebody and being treated like a lesser, second-class citizen, that literally makes no sense. To be perfectly honest, I felt more degraded in a minimum wage, blue-collar, low paying, service job than I ever did doing porn.'”

Fascinating dichotomy between the freshman women’s studies and sociology double-major and the successful porn star. Reading this forced me to re-examine my internal belief system. She’s a feminist Republican porn star. Good luck putting her into a box. See the Jezebel article that linked me to this one here.
