In sports, when you retire, whether it’s by choice, injury, or being forced out, it hurts. It’s what that person does in the next portion of their life that defines how they will be remembered.
Jose Cancesco, hit over 450 home runs but will be remembered for turning on the game that made him. Now he’s a baseball joke. Rob Black had a run and fucked it up. Now he’s hanging on by a thread selling out the one thing he says he loves. Desi Foxx and Shelley Lubben…they couldn’t deal with not being in the game anymore. So what did they do? They started a new game: Speak out against what they can no longer have.
I don’t think porn is a career choice that should be taken lightly. If you choose to do it, great. I’m not gonna judge you either way. If you choose to leave, more power to you. People say I pick on those who leave the game. Ask Remy LaCroix if that’s true. I talk to girls every day who no longer work in adult and I’m glad some of them got out. It’s obvious porn isn’t for everyone. Am I mad or do I hold a grudge that Jessie Rogers left porn? Absolutely not.
When Rogers first left, there were all kinds of rumors – pregnancy, she and her BF getting married, syphilis, high end escorting, drugs, you name it. I could have gone to town with the stuff I heard. I didn’t. It wasn’t until she suddenly went all “I’m pro condom” on everyone that she irked me. The world is full of bandwagoners. She’s one of those people…
She wrote a blog post for BroBible (since deleted but mirrored here). I suggest everyone read it.
Coming in to the adult industry at 18 years old, everyone glamorized it to me and told me it was safe. But I found out a lot the hard way.
She shot for over 2 years. Surely Jessie could have figured out it “wasn’t safe” sooner than that. Jessie, you didn’t feel safe? You had your “driver” friend/drug dealer/hook up a specialist to protect you. Maybe the flights to Dubai weren’t safe? I know flying over the ocean scares me.
What made me really step back and think twice about the industry was when they had the syphilis scare in the summer of 2012.The way they were handling it was very unorganized
This is true. I can’t remember but who was the agent that DIDN’T want his girls shooting then? Was it the same guy you were rumored to have tried to get to rep you? But why would you want new representation? It’s unsafe remember?
I know I can’t speak for all adult entertainers, but I can speak for some performers because I befriended and even dated a lot of people in the industry,
Yes, you’re correct, there are girls and guys who want condoms. There are more who don’t. I still have to wonder, with so many industry friends and boyfriends, why did you hang around so long? It would seem these friends would tell you how unsafe and horrible porn is…
They say there is a “choice,” but if you choose to work with a condom they will flat out tell you that there are hundreds of other girls willing to work without one.
Would a director hire Jesse Jane to do an all BBW orgy? No. Why? Well that’s not what they are looking for. If the scene is a non condom scene and you want condoms – well you’re shit out of luck. Oh wait, I know, let’s make everyone wear condoms so Jessie can keep her rates up. Wait, you don’t wanna shoot anymore, right? LOL
Condom scenes are shot everyday. I think some of you like to pretend there is this huge condom conspiracy out there. Sorry, there’s not. Condom work is out there, just not as much.
My ex, who is an active performer, told me he once broke his dick on a porn set. As a result, he was out of work for about six months, lost a lot of money, and was never compensated for not being able to work because of his injury
Yes, that’s sad. Condom wouldn’t have saved him.
I had a similar injury experience on a porn set on November 2012. As vulgar as it sounds, my asshole was torn open and bled for 3 days by a girl who didn’t know how to use a toy properly
Another sad condom can’t do shit for you story. Even with AB332, I doubt they have toy in the ass training.
My Employer, like any other job in California, would be required to take care of my medical follow up since working their job caused me to get hurt
Maybe, but you could look at it like – when an “employee” no shows at work to fly off to Dubai, normally that “employee” gets fired, right? Can’t have your prince and eat it to. Well, maybe YOU can..
when I went to my doctor, I found out I had contracted herpes, which is something very common in the industry
Wow, common huh? Jessie, did you know that roughly 1 in 5 people have Herpes? And to make matters worse they say 90% dont even know it. So do you know were you got your herpes from?
So think twice if the opportunity to have sex with a porn star ever presents itself
LOL wait… So the public isn’t supposed to have sex with pornstars cuz they might get herpes?? You have herpes and aren’t shooting porn anymore. Will you still have sex? Maybe for money even if times get tough?
The 10-to-15-billion dollar adult film industry
I don’t get why an industry that makes more than all professional sports combined,
Wait, so you’re saying that 10-15 billion is more money then baseball, football, and basketball combined? Sorry Tay, I’ll leave hockey out of this.
Revenue in the NFL reached an estimated $9.5 billion in 2011-12. That is up $500 million (5.6%) from the year before, and $1.8 billion (23.4%) more than Major League Baseball ($7.7 billion)
Hmmm. Do you make this shit up as you go, or did AHF give you cue cards and pay the ransom for your dog?
Doing films with condoms doesn’t cause friction or irritation with girls at all
While the idea of you personally doing a vagina wet test is kinda of hot, you didn’t. So you really have NO way of knowing which girls have vag issues and which girls don’t. There are lots of NON porn girls who don’t like condoms. In fact, a quick Google search came back with this. So there is at least one women in the US whose vag gets irritated by a condom. I don’t know her, but I doubt she fucks four times a week for hours on end at her job.
and my agent was a dick about me re-booking
And why is it, in an unsafe industry like porn, one running over with STDs and horrible bosses, instead of quitting, you tried to change agents? Then when you couldn’t, you retired? Coincidence? Maybe…
Pet your dog for me. I’m glad he’s safe.
