There has been a lot of talk lately about the #MeToo movement and xxx star PR, which is an international call to action against sexual harassment and assault.
More than a few people in the porn industry have been outed, but still, performers in the adult industry have been leery of coming forward fully with their own stories for two reasons – first there are those who have come forward and been busted in a lie. Those who lie about any abuses they’ve received hurts those who are the true victims. The other reason some don’t come forward is fear. Fear of being blacklisted and even worse, fear of being physically assaulted. Read more about fake PR.
Anyone who decides to work in the porn industry eventually learns there is a raw, hard truth in the old saying, “You get what you pay for”. When it comes to selecting an agent, publicist, or photographer: for all intents and purposes you ARE the people you associate with. Their honors and accolades reflect on you, as do their shames and misdemeanors. The good will or bad will they have built up in their business relationships can help you ascend the heights of superstardom, or make people want to never work with you!
People always seek out friends, services and resources to match their needs and tastes, but you really see this come into play when they have relocated, the way the majority of adult performer do. Folks in the adult industry find each other and form bonds. Sometimes they offer to “help”, make introductions or perform functions for one another.
And, as anyone who’s purchased a sack of ten oranges for a dollar from a Mexican family standing roadside knows, “you get what you pay for”.
