Lana Rhoades has said porn is '100 percent fake' and that adult movie stars are treated like 'circus acts'.
The former pornstar was once one of the most well known names in the business, but has since shunned the industry and is now outspoken about the negative way actors, particularly women, are treated.
Her opinions certainly haven't changed, as demonstrated in a recent interview on The Skinny Confidential podcast.
At one point in the episode, host Lauryn Evarts Bosstick says, "Let's blow the cover off porn – how real is it?" to which Rhoades replies, "100 percent fake."
She continues: "It's like circus acts as a performer, when I was doing it, it was like what face can I make? What sound could I make? What can I do in this movie to make it the best one?"
The 26-year-old social media personality, real name Amara Maple, went on to explain that she doesn't 'even like sex', adding that she's more or less 'asexual'.
"I don't even like having sex, honestly I'm pretty much asexual," she says, later stating: "I never hook up with people, I don't find people attractive and I've always been like that. It's not like there was a change after doing porn."
Later on in the interview, Bosstick highlights the fact that Rhoades only ever made porn movies for eight months, and yet she rose to fame in the industry very quickly.
Nonetheless, it was enough time for the star to realise how must damage it can cause, saying: "I don't think it's [porn] good for anyone, they should make it illegal."
Rhoades was just 19 at the time that she started her career in the adult entertainment business and had only ever had sex with one person.
Her goal, she explained, was to make a better life for herself, and hadn't thought about the ramifications of what she was getting into.
"I wasn't mature enough to realise what actually went into it and very, very quickly I realised this isn't for me," she said.
A clip of the episode's snippets was shared on TikTok where dozens of people shared their support and concern for Rhoades.
"I feel so sad she sounds traumatised," wrote one, while another said: "Lana seems like such a bright and kind soul, I hope she's doing well."
Thankfully she is doing well, having recently said she's now making more money than she ever did while working in porn.
What's more, earlier this year she gave birth to a baby boy named Milo, who she's described as her 'best friend in the entire world'.
