Lana Rhoades, an Illinois-born former adult actress, made news this summer when she spoke out about her awful date with a Brooklyn Nets player. The 26-year-old is now stirring up controversy after giving her opinions on the porn industry many years after retiring.

The former porn star claimed in a recent interview that she is asexual and wants porn to be banned from production. Rhoades discussed her sexual orientation and the adult industry in the podcast. “I don’t think it’s good for anybody,” she said during the interview.

Lana went on to claim that her perspective on life before and after she started doing porn is “very different.” Rhoades claimed she had no idea what she was getting herself into when she initially started making X-rated videos. “I also had only slept with one person at this point. So, I was very sexually inexperienced,” the new mother of one recalled.

That’s why and for whatever reason I never comprehended like, to do porn you actually have to have sex with people. It’s just the idea of, oh okay, I’m going to be like Anna Nicole Smith or I’m going to be like Holly Madison or this person it was like an idea in my head but I wasn’t mature enough to realize what actually went into it.

Lana further added, “very quickly I realized this isn’t for me,” notably because it was a “job” that didn’t allow her to choose who she was having sex with.

I mean, essentially you’re having to have sex with people that you didn’t choose to have sex with that you might not find attractive you might actually think that they’re disgusting and you have to have sex with them because it’s your job. How should a 19-year-old girl be put in that position having to have sex with people that they don’t really don’t want to touch their body at all?

Rhoades left the industry after an eight-month stint. She has now started her own successful clothing and lingerie brands. The social media influencer feels that porn should be “illegal” now that she has distanced herself. At the same time, she admitted to being “pretty much asexual” and that she doesn’t often “find people attractive” or “hook up” with them.
