Mia Khalifa opens up on struggle in porn industry: My family disowned me when they found out

Former adult film actress Mia Khalifa has been speaking out about the porn industry for a while and in a telling interview with BBC, explained the reason behind doing so. The 26-year-old worked in the porn industry for three months in 2015 but still ranks on the top spot on certain adult film sites

While sharing her experience of working in the adult film industry with BBC, Mia said that several others with similar stories reached out to her after her recent interview was published, in which she discussed the various aspects of the porn industry.

After the interview came out, people started reaching out. All of my emails – my manager checks them. When he gets stuff like that, he filters them and sends them to me. And reading the words of some of these girls, who have been sex-trafficked and forced into porn, and all of these stories of girls whose lives have been ruined by it and by men, who have taken advantage of them, and by contracts that they didn’t even understand the jargon of, it makes me feel like, okay, maybe it was good that I started talking,” Mia said during her interview with BBC Hardtalk.

Some people can also relate to Mia, she said, adding, “That I posted this interview and that I am speaking out now, because other people feel the same way, and even if they do not relate on a deep level as doing porn, they can relate on the level of being insecure and being pressured into doing something that they did not want to do
