Editorial Reviews

After Porn Ends, is a documentary that not only examines the lives and careers of some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry; but what happens to them after they leave the business and try and live the "normal" lives that millions of other Americans enjoy. As teenagers, and young adults, none of them thought that porn was in their future. They were artists, baseball players, child prodigies, and even Ivy Leaguers. Now, after their lives in porn; they're TV stars, bounty hunters, writers, and social activists. What happened in between? And now that they've moved on, can they really live a normal life after porn?

I found this to be a sensitive portrayal of some people involved in porn, from Seka who doesn't regret a thing to Chrissy Moran who regrets it all. I liked that the director didn't try to make a central point here; he just let the people speak for themselves. I found it very interesting. Some of the ex porn stars were funny like Richard Pacheco. The only really attractive person for me was Mary Carey (before her multiple surgeries) so I didn't watch this for titillation, just to see what the lives of people who live outside of mainstream society were like.

First off, if you're expecting a Morgan Spurlock/Michael Moore doc with a fat soundtrack, fancy visual effects, and witty dialogue that will firmly direct you into thinking what they want you to. Then this is not that kind of film. The film maker (Bryce Wagoner)looks like he had a shoestring budget, and as a result, did what so many film makers forget to do when making important documentaries such as this one. Let the subjects themselves tell the story. Each cast member was able to tell a full circle tale of before, during, and after their time in the XXX industry. Out of the 12 people interviewed, all of their stories were surprisingly unique, relatable, inspiring, and heartbreaking. To coin a phrase, it's "fair and balanced." And I found myself seeing a little bit of me and other people I knew in each and every one of these one time celebrities. As long as pornography is a mainstay in our society, this will be a relevant piece of work. So with that being the case for the foreseeable future, I couldn't recommend it more!

After Porn Ends is, believe it or not, a touching/moving documentary. Effectively moving, surprisingly enough. For those of you curious what happens to porn actresses after they retire, this is the perfect movie for you. In case you're fantasizing about something sexual... guess again. This documentary shows how normal these women really are. Not that most of us thought otherwise right? Wrong! I thought otherwise. Foolish little me. :)

As you can probably imagine, many of these porn actresses only entered the business because of a variety of reasons- they came from broken homes, they weren't loved by their parents, they were never appreciated in any way by other people or boyfriends, they were abused by their boyfriends, they developed a drug or alcohol addiction, never believed in anything, some of them wanted to seek a modeling career and thought sex would be a rewarding financial career opportunity, etc. They didn't enter the porn industry because they're extremely sexually active and couldn't contain themselves which I'm sure many (including myself when I was younger, I admit) were thinking. Great fantasy I know but... that's all it is- a fantasy.

However this documentary takes it a step further. This documentary successfully explains the childhood of many familiar/popular porn actresses and how they were raised, and they talk in precise detail by way of sit down interviews how they feel about sex and what they've always wanted out of life. Many of these women regret entering the porn business for several reasons- mainly because the fortune and fame became too much to handle, and they'd often get ridiculed by "fans" for their decision to have sex on camera which would sometimes result in having to be careful wherever they travel.

This is a comprehensive documentary about people that were in the industry and their lives before, during, and after porn. It was good to see interviews with actors from the previous four decades. This lends credibility to the movie. It is difficult to hear or see pornography actors speaking realistically about their lives relative to the industry--something I have always wanted to see, though I can understand why some would prefer to never be heard from ever again. It shows their humanity. Something actually lacking in the films. [Regarding pornography; I do understand that a fantasy is being sold. Not true reality. The naive would think it reflects real life. It doesn't. That is why I like seeing their human side. I always found sexually oriented media extremely titillating but I can distinguish between what is and isn't real. Were there no buyer then there would be no seller. A realistic open mind toward human sexuality versus demonization, shame, and social suppression of one of the strongest drivers of humanity can curb the human need for sexually explicit media--pornography. Interest only intensifies when parents try to hide and lie about sex instead of addressing it openly.] The only real drawback is that there were no black people in it. I would certainly like to hear and see their experiences compared to the white actors. I'd lay odds that it is very different. I'd have given it five stars were that addressed. Hope to see more well-made documentaries like this one.

It's interesting how so many of the people featured in After Porn Ends seem to have all of the same problems as "normal" people, bad relationships, self-doubt, substance abuse, compounded by the stigma of having been in the adult film industry. There is such a glamour that is constantly associated with the world of pornography that it is compelling to see that it all seems to easily slip away when the cameras are turned off. The parties and the money don't last forever and real life has different demands.

The documentary style itself is adequate to the task but it is little more than turning the camera on and letting the performers talk. It's good that many of the people included are interesting in their own right since they don't seem to be prodded much by the director.

Whatever your personal stance about pornography might be, this is an interesting study that shows the variety of lives that performers have led after they end their careers.
