Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.

Why one porn star thinks the industry is destroying itself / Nerve

 

 

MLNP Star Danny Wylde recently wrote this thought-provoking piece for Nerve and we highly recommend it as a must-read. 


 

Written by Christopher Zeischegg (aka Danny Wylde) for Nerve. Originally published on July 18th, 2014.

“I’ve been working in porn for eight years, and for eight years, I’ve been defending it. First, it was from friends and family. Maybe I didn’t care about the industry itself, but I defended myself as a part of it. I didn’t want those closest to me to believe I was a fuck-up while I was fucking for a living.

In most ways, I wasn’t. I used porn to help pay my way through college, and I stuck with it long enough to earn myself a legitimate career.

Porn became important to me over time. I involved myself in the politics, befriended my colleagues, and became entrenched in the feedback loop that made me feel like I was doing something with my life. Porn gave me a sense of purpose. So I defended it some more.

I stood up for our productions, our health practices, and our rights as performers to use our bodies to make a living.

Then, one day, I was forced out of it. Well, at least the fucking part. My frequent use of performance-enhancing, erectile dysfunction drugs landed me in the hospital. A doctor’s orders meant that I could never have sex — professionally — again. It wasn’t the end of the world, but my career was over. Just like that.

My change in circumstances required a re-evaluation of what I stood for, and why. There was no way I could turn my back on the industry. However, I’d witnessed a deterioration in the rewards of my career at a time when the risks seemed greater than ever before. My experience gave me the utmost respect for those who braved the life of a performer. But I could no longer be a steadfast advocate for much of XXX industry practice.”
