A lot can change in 10 years, especially if you work in a profession like porn that is constantly bringing new stars in and pushing old ones out. So for the latest episode of "Ask a Porn Star," which provides insight into adult film stars' lives, the site WoodRocket asked porn stars to try and envision what their lives will be like in 10 years.
"Like a snowflake, every porn star is different," porn director and WoodRocket creator Lee Roy Myers told Complex. "We wanted to find out just how different. And since they already have lots of porn awards differentiating their sexual skills, we decided to ask them where they saw themselves in 10 years. The answers we got led to much better insight into the person that has been nominated for a Best Double Penetration Award than the penis-shaped award itself."
Many of them admitted they don't really know what their futures hold, with some unsure about whether or not they have a future in porn. "46 year old p*ssy—who is gonna look at that?" Aiden Starr wondered. "I don't know I want to look at it."
Some sounded more optimistic. "I see myself in 10 years as a well-known porn star who has achieved the respect and equality as a porn star, knowing the scene and that people can depend on me," Lauren Phillips said.
A few suggested they might get into directing or producing porn—several of them used the phrase "behind the camera"—while others imagined exiting the industry entirely. "Maybe I'll be a street sweeper," Starr said.
Other possible post-porn professions included a veterinarian and a doctor or nurse, and Sasha Heart said she plans to be a stay-at-home mom. Many of the porn stars also mentioned that they would like to be married sometime over the course of the next decade.
But the best 10-year plan award definitely goes to Arabelle Raphael. "I want to live in the middle of nowhere and have a crazy cat lady sanctuary and not talk to anyone," she said. "My husband can maybe come."
Way to dream big.
