Despite most porn being made available for free online these days, there’s still clearly a lot of money to be made in the industry.

With thousands of pounds being up for grabs per shoot, the amount of money can be an attractive offering. But there’s a darker side to it all, something that Bree Olson knows all too well.

Olson worked in porn for six years and now has a very stark warning for anyone thinking about starting a new career in the industry. She says: “I send a very strong message to young girls – don’t do porn.”

She got into the industry as a 19-year-old student, attracted by the huge paycheques. But she finally quit when she was 25, sacrificing a salary that sometimes saw her earn $60,000 (£42,000) a month.

In a new video with YouTube channel Real Women Real Stories  she has shared her experiences of the industry and life after it. And it’s fair to say, she doesn’t paint a pretty picture.

Bree explains:

The words are something I didn’t expect to affect me in my everyday life. When I go out, I feel as if I’m wearing ‘slut’ across my forehead. The names that people have called me. It’s as if you could take out those names and print them and put them on a ribbon around my whole body – all those things people have written about me online – that’s how I feel when I walk out on the street.

She is now trying to forge a career as a ‘mainstream’ actress, though she really struggles to be accepted by people because of her porn career.

There are days to weeks at a time where I don’t leave my house because I don’t feel like facing the world that has been created out there for me. I get so disappointed when I go out and meet a new friend and it turns out they don’t want to be my friend any more. Sometimes it’s just easier for me not to leave the house.

Bree explains that if she returned to the industry she could earn $20,000 (£14,000) just for one video, though she says it just wouldn’t be worth it for the way society would treat her and what they’d say about her.

People treat me as if I am a paedophile, they don’t treat me like an ex-sex worker, they treat me like I would somehow be damaging to children.

The interviewer then asks her how she would like to be treated, but it’s too much for Olsen to take as she breaks down in tears.

I don’t think it’ll ever happen. That’s why I don’t think about it.

The video does make very difficult watching throughout, but it does serve as a harsh reminder of how a career in porn can really effect your life.
