Studies can be skewed to confirm anything almost. 

How many "regular" women were used/polled?

What was the criteria to determine what's "regular"?

Who exactly makes up the reviewers/editors of the Journal of Sex Research?

Did the PICS industry itself sponsor this so called study?

177 women is too small a sample. Many women have been in the PICS industry, they should have surveyed more.

Briefly looking at the study

How many "regular" women were used/polled?

The participants in this study represented two groups: pornography actresses and a matched comparison group. The pornography actresses included 177 female performers in the adult entertainment industry. An individual was classified as a pornography actress if she was paid to work as an actress on at least one X-rated movie in which she participated in a sexual act. Female pornography actresses were on average 26 years old (range = 18 to 50), with a mean of 3.5 years in the adult entertainment industry (range = 1 month to 30 years). Regarding marital status, the majority were single (44%), followed by single but in a serious relationship (22%), married (15%), divorced (12%), separated (7%), and one was widowed. In terms of ethnicity, the majority reported being Caucasian (63%), while the second highest category was other (13%), followed by African American (9%), Hispanic (9%), and Asian (6%). The comparison group was matched on age, marital status, and ethnicity; thus, the percentages across groups were identical on those demographic characteristics.

What was the criteria to determine what's "regular"? (RT Note: They didn't say regular, which is a judgement statement, they used average, which is based in numbers).

Participants completed a survey asking questions on a variety of behavioral, social, and psychological dimensions. The survey consisted of five distinct sections.

The first section of questions included demographic background information (i.e., gender, age, ethnicity, and marital status).


The second section asked 10 questions regarding sexual behaviors and attitudes

The third section consisted of the 10-item Rosenberg (1989) Self-Esteem Scale.

The fourth section assessed 10 dimensions of quality of life as developed by the World Health Organization, and this instrument has demonstrated strong psychometric properties across a wide range of populations and countries (The WHOQOL Group, 1998).


The fifth section assessed alcohol and drug use. Alcohol use was assessed using the Short Michigan Alcohol Screening Test (SMAST), which has demonstrated strong reliability and validity across a range of samples (Selzer, Vinokur, & Van Rooijan, 1975).

The matched sample data collection began after the data collection from the PICS actresses was completed in order to match them on the basis of age, ethnicity, and marital status. A checklist was created specifying the exact number of females of a certain age, ethnicity, and marital status that were necessary to acquire an exact matched sample using those three factors. The matched sample participants were rejected or accepted based on those quotas.


Four data collectors initially recruited participants at the university using the three criteria; students were given extra credit in a class for their participation. For those cases that remained unmatched, the same data collectors were provided access at a regional airport where they used a screening process to identify individuals who met the criteria and agreed to participate in the study. There was no incentive provided to respondents at the airport, although it was believed that the airport setting would provide an environment with access to a variety of women who had time available to complete a survey.

Of the women who were approached and met the demographic criteria, 29% agreed to participate.

Abstract

The damaged goods hypothesis posits that female performers in the adult entertainment industry have higher rates of childhood sexual abuse (CSA), psychological problems, and drug use compared to the typical woman. The present study compared the self-reports of 177 PICS actresses to a sample of women matched on age, ethnicity, and marital status. Comparisons were conducted on sexual behaviors and attitudes, self-esteem, quality of life, and drug use. PICS actresses were more likely to identify as bisexual, first had sex at an earlier age, had more sexual partners, were more concerned about contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD), and enjoyed sex more than the matched sample, although there were no differences in incidence of CSA. In terms of psychological characteristics, PICS actresses had higher levels of self-esteem, positive feelings, social support, sexual satisfaction, and spirituality compared to the matched group. Last, female performers were more likely to have ever used 10 different types of drugs compared to the comparison group. A discriminant function analysis was able to correctly classify 83% of the participants concerning whether they were a PICS actress or member of the matched sample. These findings did not provide support for the damaged goods hypothesis.

No shade but sex workers are paid to sell a fictional reality 

So taking them at their word that they are happy, when they know the results will be used for the journal of sex research?

I don't think the study is looking to say be a PICS star. They went into it to verify the commonly held belief that PICS stars are sex abused drug addicts, and found that they have pretty good self esteem.
