Have you ever wondered what the life of an amateur porn star is like?

A 19-year-old who is an amateur porn actress has opened up on a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread and candidly revealed her experiences. 

Since the hype of Hot Girls Wanted, an amateur porn documentary produced by Rashida Jones, Reddit user missphilly101 sheds light on the industry.

The teenager has been an active part of the industry for around eight months, she has a boyfriend, works as a waitress, lives with her parents and studies a Bachelor of Chemistry…

On her boyfriend’s reaction:

“At first, he was mad. I told him after my first shoot that I was going to start doing porn and I told him that I did one already. He got really upset – started crying and everything. He said he wanted to spend some time away from me for a little.

“After about two days of not speaking, we sat down and had a grown-up conversation about it and I told him that I wasn’t going to sacrifice the opportunity I was getting for our relationship.”

On her relationship:

“What I do and what I feel on camera is completely different to what I do and what I feel in the bedroom with my boyfriend. At first I was frightened that sex between my boyfriend and I would become less enjoyable, but it didn’t. It enhanced it more than anything, I’d say. When I have sex with my boyfriend, I do it with love. It’s an act of pure love between us. On camera, it’s just sex. Meaningless sex. With my boyfriend I give it everything. Everything is real. There’s emotion. When you’re getting f****d meaninglessly so often, there’s something wonderful about having sex with someone you actually want to.”

On money:

“Most days I only do one, which can last from anywhere from two to ten hours. The most shoots I’ve done in a day so far is four. I made about $2000 give or take a few tens that day, before taxes were deducted. I usually do about one a day, twice to three times a week if I’m lucky.

“I can sometimes make in one day, what I make in two weeks with my waitressing job. It really is purely for the money. And I like sex – but I have a boyfriend for that, so I don’t do it for the sexual pleasure at all.”

On the industry:

“Some amateur companies are pure filth. Just out to prey on young girls and exploit them without paying them. They do get tricked. Some of the directors will try and push them into it. They’ll shower them with great words and tell them how great they are. They’re slimy, they will cajole young girls who are new to the business and don’t have a clue. That’s why it’s best to get yourself with an agency (even if a little one) that’s been doing what they do for a long time and know what they’re doing. It also helps to be headstrong, and not be meek. You really have to be streetwise, educated on the matter and don’t be a pushover. If it sounds too good to be true, then it pretty well f***ing will be and you should get out of there.”

On the best part:

“Very occasionally. I have been turned on and I have had a real orgasm on camera. I mostly get turned on when I’m shooting with super hot girls. The pay isn’t as big for girl on girl shoots, but they’re usually my favorite. Because I know that I’m not really romantically interested in females, I feel a little better about doing it and I let myself get more into it. Do you get what I mean? Like when I’m with a really hot girl, I can get right into the sex because I know there’s really not a part of me that could be emotionally tied with her. Although I know I love my boyfriend and I’d never cheat on him, I feel more guilty about it when doing guy-girl scenes, because I know I can fall in love with men.”

On the challenges: 

“A lot of the times I’m genuinely not aroused at all. I can get aroused but with a lot of work and mental stimulation of my own. Luckily for me being a female, it’s not easy to tell if my arousal is ingenuinie or not. I don’t have to hold an erection. Which is what I’d say is a challenge for the male performers. Sometimes they just can’t hold the erection. So we’ll have to keep stopping and starting.”

On safety:

“I’ve had sex with about 30+ different guys and about 40+ different girls since I started doing porn.

“With professional amateur companies, they are just as rigorous with STI testing. Every 14 days is what most companies have in place, some 28. They’re not paid for by the companies in amateur porn, though. They’re mandatory and you have to provide documentation proving you’re clean and you have to pay for it. It’s not cheap, either. So, there really is no high risk at all. Sexual health is my priority in all of this, and I wouldn’t dare take the risk if I wasn’t sure.”

On why:

“Truthfully? The money.”
