Hitting the Porn Star Wall

At some point in most people’s lives, they hit “The Wall”. For me, it was the day that I quit smoking 11 years ago. I gained 50lbs over the next six months and have been battling the bulge ever since.

Porn stars are the same. Sure, most of the time they can pay their way out of “The Wall” and get some plastic surgery to prevent it from happening, but eventually it happens to everybody.

She was a bit of a minor celebrity back in the 90’s because (a) she was a spectacularly gorgeous porn superstar who only slept with women on camera, (b) she did a home video with Motley Crue singer Vince Neil that got released to the public, and (c) she married motorcycle-building celebrity Jesse James…a relationship that had a pretty negative public falling out.Janine hot 4

Women went crazy wanting to see her movies because she appeared to make all women go crazy in ecstasy and seemed to love what she was doing. She really was the perfect porn star.Janine hot 3

Even as she got older and made a comeback that resulted in her banging men for the first time on film, she looked unbelievable.Janine hot 6Unfortunately, though, life caught up with her pretty quickly and the last few years haven’t been kind to her.Janine today 1Janine Lindemulder today

Of course, porn stars always seem worse because they were “glammed-up” for so long and it’s difficult to see them as “average people”. Asia Carrera was one of the biggest adult stars from the early 90’s. Because of her ethnicity, she had massive crossover appeal with fans of all backgrounds.Carrera carved out a Hall of Fame career for herself.AsiaUnfortunately, her husband passed away in the early 00’s. This resulted in one of the most beautiful adult film stars of all time going down a very self-destructive path, which included an addiction to alcohol. Her looks changed slightly…Asia todayMost recently, she was making headlines for wearing some kind of pasta strainer on her head for her driver’s license photo as a way to protest organized religion (or some weird shit like that). Asia Carrera todayThis past week, she was arrested for drunk driving. Her photo was a bit of a shock for a guy who remembered her at her hottest…Asia Carrera mug shotThe most famous porn star of all time, probably, is Jenna Jameson. It would be a very easy argument to make by saying that, at one point, there was no other adult film star who had the massive crossover appeal into the mainstream entertainment industry like Jameson…who was considered one of those women who were “too hot for porn”.hot jenna 5hot jenna 1For whatever reason, Jameson felt her face needed work. She also felt that she needed to lose weight (which was an absolutely RIDICULOUS thing for her to think). Those two things combined to create a woman who, quite frankly, never would have survived in pornography that long if she looked like that from the very beginning. I mean…you want to talk about hitting a wall? What the hell was Jameson thinking???ugly jenna 2
Thankfully,  it looks like Jameson is slowly making her way back to a much more healthier (and hopefully sober) look: jenna today

There are many other cases, to be sure. It’s probably not even fair to make comparisons from the early 90’s to today when it comes to these women. But an argument could be made for “aging gracefully”. If you look at women like Tori Welles…Tori Welles 2Tori Welles 4

…they obviously don’t look as they did 20 years ago but still found a way to not succumb to “personal demons” and fall apart at the seams.

It’s a shame, really. These women made their careers by using their looks. Maybe it’s because of that very reason that they “let themselves go” and just don’t care about how they look anymore. They want to look like a “normal person”. It’s hard to say.

I will say this, though…it makes me feel better about myself to know that nobody stays hot forever.
