Lana Rhoades reveals she's now a multi-millionaire since quitting adult film industry

Lana Rhoades previously said she wants all her old Pornhub videos deleted

Retired adult film actress Lana Rhoades has revealed how she became a multi-millionaire since retiring from the adult entertainment industry.

Lana Rhoades had previously been one of the most-searched actresses on Pornhub, but has now retired from the adult industry to pursue a career as an influencer.

She is not the only former porn star to successfully make the switch from the adult entertainment industry to influencing.

Former PornHub number one Mia Khalifa did a similar career move, leaving porn behind for a career as an influencer.

Rhoades has now opened up about making the transition away from porn, as well as revealing some of her experiences while working in the industry.

The main takeaway that Rhoades, whose real name is Amara Maple, was the realisation that if she had a large enough platform being an influencer could be extremely lucrative.

Speaking on the Tap In podcast with YouTuber Harry Jowsey, she revealed that while working in the porn industry she met a YouTuber who claimed to get paid $15,000 for posing with a jeep, and keeping their clothes very much on.

Rhoades said: "And I was like, 'Wow, I get paid $1,200 to do this disgusting sex scene, why the f**k am I doing this?'"

The former actress worked in the adult industry for around eight months before leaving to try and carve out a career as an influencer.

And things have been going very well for Rhoades since she left the industry.

Speaking to the BFFs podcast, she said: "The industry I did not get paid s**t, I probably had $100,000 in my bank account when I quit shooting porn, now I'm a multi millionaire."

Despite her rising to the top of Pornhub to become the 'number one' model on the site, unfortunately due to not having the rights to the videos she features in, this didn't do a great deal for her financially.

This is similar to the circumstances with Mia Khalifa, who revealed the shockingly small amount she was paid despite becoming one of the most popular models on the site.

More importantly however, Rhoades explained that her not having the rights to her videos means that she can't have them removed.

She said: "So Pornhub, a lot of the videos I have no rights under over or otherwise I probably would have deleted them all by now."

The influencer revealed that she does have regrets about her career in porn, saying: "I do, I honestly tell people if I could go back I would give up everything to have my dignity and respect back and for people to not be able to see me in that way."
