An adult film actress and escort has spoken in depth about what it’s actually like to make pornography for a living – and how important social media is for her career.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, 25-year-old Lana Jade has revealed what goes on behind the scenes on a porn shoot as well as a whole host of other intimate details of her life as an adult film star.

The incredible rise of social media means that marketing is now key for anyone in the industry and Lana says Twitter is the most effective tool for sex workers to ‘sell’ themselves.

She told the Daily Mail:

It’s crazy how good Twitter is for marketing within the sex industry.

Twitter doesn’t have the censorship issues that Instagram has, you can see full-on porn on Twitter.

According to Lana, consent and safety are also massively important, and every actor has to present a blood test from the last week proving they are disease free before they can work.

Consent in the porn industry has recently hit headlines after a number of adult actress accused male porn star James Deen of rape.

“Before anyone agrees to a scene you talk to the company directly about what your limits are and what you agree to do on camera,” said Lana.

The Sydney based star believes the stigma attached to sex work means a lot of women in the industry find it difficult to seek help when they are abused.

She told the Daily Mail:

We get victim blamed simply for being in the industry. Being in the sex industry, doesn’t give people the right to abuse us.

For some reason society feels that because we use our body to make an income, it somehow allows others to abuse us.

Lana does most of her work in the relatively small porn industry in Australia.

She says most of the films are pretty ‘basic’ compared to what comes out of America:

It’s pretty much your basic stuff like boy/girl for a basic sex scene, girl-on-girl or multiple people.

But because it’s such a small industry Australian actors can’t make a huge amount of money just from porn.

Lana uses it to supplement her other work as an escort and, like many other escorts and glamour models, uses porn to build her brand in the sex industry.

However, she says the biggest misconception about sex workers is that all of them are somehow forced or pressured into the industry.

“I don’t have to do sex work, I’m educated, I’m highly intelligent, it’s not a fallback career,” she says. “This is what I choose to do.”

She says:

If people judge me on something that makes me happy and earns me more than if I worked 50 hours a week for someone else – that’s their problem not mine.

That is definitely fair enough.
