Not everyone goes into that specific industry because they have family trauma. But I think it's safe to say that no parent wants their child growing up to be a p.orn star. Geek

I'd say this is the most important thing to take away from it.

“Stereotypes of those involved in adult entertainment have been used to support or condemn the industry and to justify political views on pornography, although the actual characteristics of actresses are unknown because no study on this group of women has been conducted. Some descriptions of actresses in pornography have included attributes such as drug addiction, homelessness, poverty, desperation, and being victims of sexual abuse.

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?

Briefly looking at the study

Originally posted by Tbaby Tbaby wrote:

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 ( http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00224499.2012.719168#CIT0038" rel="nofollow - 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, http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00224499.2012.719168#CIT0051" rel="nofollow - 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, http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00224499.2012.719168#CIT0040" rel="nofollow - 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.

Do yall think female p0rn stars who already know the reputation of female PICS stars would say otherwise tho? I mean its their bread and butter why would they say something that would hurt their current profession. I do believe that there are some women who are in the sex industry that are truly happy but at the same time I don't think they are happier than ur average woman as a whole. The only 1 up they got on ur average woman is that aside from fetish films they can rest assure that the peen they fugg is gonna be a fatty.

I would be interested in how those numbers compare to the women who arent in p0rn who are also sexually satisfied.

They do it all of the time.

Just in the past 3-4 years, (since ive started listening to foxxhole radio/reach around radio; they have PICS stars on all of the time) I've heard interviews of them where they openly talk about the industry. Some go in on aspects that they hate. The stars and relative unknowns.

Howard Stern has PICS stars on his show all of the time. Some talk about their sex abuse. Some talk about daddy issues. Some talk about not liking sex. This could hurt their current profession and add to the belief that sex workers are *&%^$#@Eed up damaged goods, but they speak on it anyways.

I get that what you are getting at. PICS stars doing what it takes (lying on a servery) in the hopes of somehow changing americas view of the industry. But I don't see 177 individual PICS stars, conspiring to answer these kinds of questions in a way to make their profession look good.

1.
What is your sexual orientation?
2.
What was the age of the first time you had sexual intercourse?
3.
Were you a victim of childhood sexual abuse?
4.
How many different sexual partners have you had in your lifetime? [The PICS actresses were instructed not to count partners within the industry, unless it occurred outside of their work.]
5.
How many different sexual partners have you had during the past 12 months? [The PICS actresses were instructed not count partners within the industry, unless it occurred outside of their work.]
6.
Assume that you are considering a relationship with someone and the topic of their “sexual history” comes up. What is the ideal number of sexual partners they should have had?
7.
On a 10-point scale (1 = not concerned at all and 10 = very concerned), how concerned are you about catching an STD?
8.
On a 100-point scale (0 = none and 100 = definite), if a person had unprotected sex with someone whom they just met, what would you estimate the probability that they might catch an STD?
9.
On a 10-point scale (1 = not at all and 10 = very much), how much do you enjoy sex?
10.
On a 100-point scale (0 = not likely at all and 100 = definitely), estimate the likelihood that you would use a condom if having heterosexual sex with someone for the first time.

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.


So their matched sample pool were mostly college females from an obscure university in Pensylvania, and a few women who answered the survey at an airport.  Sorry that doesn't begin to represent all women by any means.

If this study took into account the thousands of women of all ages, statuses, economic backgrounds and such and then compared their findings with 1000 responses from pic actresses, I'd be more impressed.

Goooosh...I want to add my two cents so desperately!

But I have to run Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

I also wanna lurk some other threads before logging out. LOL

Got damn it! lol

I will say this. For the record I represent a well adjusted former teamdropitlikeitshot. Well....I would like to think so. 

When I first signed up for BHM I made it a personal mission of sorts to let that be known.
I guess in hopes of dispelling myths surrounding the temperament, background and personality of women that choose such a field.

We used to have such a robust selection of teamdropitlikeitshot. LOL
Many of which were friendly, outgoing, candid......

Meanwhile some of the most hateful women on here are society darlings? imjussayin. 

Because I stand alone...it's difficult for me to engage in these sort of topics without feeling....vulnerable. lol

I have more to add. But this study doesn't come as a surprise to me one bit.

Disclaimer; I was not ever in any shape or form a PICS star. lol. Gotta make that clear. Nonetheless, the sex industry is the sex industry is the sex industry.

That's cool. But you can toss out pretty much all studies then. But maybe that's what some in here already do (unless it conveniently supports whatever issue they are standing on).

I think it's worth repeating that the researchers are not writing these articles and headlines. Journalist looking for stories are cherry picking things and posting these (not well written) articles. They are the ones writing 'happier'.

Seems many reeeeeally want to discredit the surveys for whatever reason. I don't really care either way. I just don't see why it's such a stretch for young sexually open people (and i'll pigeonhole PICS stars into that corner even though there are non-PICS stars who are sexually open) to have better body image, more energy and self esteem than similarly aged people who may have less time or incentive to focus on their bodies.

I consider the source with all studies as well as the way it was conducted. I dont think any person should base their opinions on a study alone. Because the same thing can be done in a different segment of the US and have a different out come depending on if its an area with more conservative or liberal ppl.

As far as sexually open thats what i was getting at when I said did they seek women who are sexually  satisfied. On average many women are not sexually satisfied  however if this study was done with those who are vs those in the industry I don't think the numbers would have been much different at all. On average I think women in general who are satisfied sexually and are sexually open tend to develop a higher self esteem,or body image. Its not hard to have a better view of ur body if u go into a industry where you know for sure the ppl ur producing material for will find u sexy and attractive. They are told this on a daily basis unlike ur average woman. They are admired and have somewhat a fan base  and celebrity around them which also helps the ego unlike ur average woman.

I don't think it's hard to believe that a p.orn star could have a better body image than an average chick. You have to have some level of comfort to be willing to take it all off on a regular basis knowing that thousands if not millions may see every nook and cranny on your body.

I think a lot of people like to think that people who work in the adult industry can't be well adjusted just because it is a fringe industry. Like assuming that all strippers are drug heads/alcoholics, etc. Not always the case. Although those industries aren't for me, I don't side eye anyone who gets into it. To each his own.

lmao. They better be more energetic than my lazy ass.

As for happier? Getting spit/shat on/farted/pooped/cummed on doesn't seem all that appealing to me....


I have a friend who does p.orn. They let you choose what you're comfortable with doing, so you don't have to have certain bodily functions done on you if you don't want to. Again, it's really about what people are into. Some ppl are into keeping it missionary and some people like a bit of variety.

A new study published in the Journal of Sex Research has found that women who work as adult entertainers have better self-esteem, better body image, higher energy levels and a more positive outlook than other women. The research, which compared 177, er, "actresses" with a sample of similar women, also found there's no truth to the belief that female PICS stars are more likely to have been sexually abused as children. However, feminist commentator Dawn Foster cautioned that the study shouldn't provide an excuse to gloss over the "exploitative aspects" of the PICS industry. [Source]

That's true. Out of curiosity(I swear ) I looked at the form you have to fill out if your interested in being in the industry and you can check off the things your willing to do like anal, interracial, threesomes etc. the more you're willing to do the more you get paid I guess.

most women who are in a career that they want are happier than "regular" women. 
did the study look at their past (im just saying, that if you come from a really f*cked up home, you might have a lower goal of happiness.)

eta: not just sexual abuse.

No this is definitely frivolous research - or at least in the context of the OP article.

Judging the "happiness" level of p.orn stars is seriously a waste of $ except to prove that the preconceived notion that all p.orn stars hate themselves is false. I put this study right up there with the one I read about in my child psych course in college that there was a $10M 5yr study done to prove that children who received positive affirmation and affection from their parents turned out better adjusted adults than their counterparts who didn't. Confused

So what are sex researchers and sociologist suppose to research, if not subjects related to sex and sociology?

If politicians, lawmakers, and citizens use beliefs such as the 'damaged good hypothesis' (which is what the researchers studied, not happiness, that's the spin journalist put to it) to make laws or push agendas, then how is it frivolous to confirm or verify those commonly accepted beliefs?

Tbh I don't think there is such a thing as frivolous research.
Even if it is thought to be true we still need research to support or refute it.

It's frivolous in regards to the amount of money spent on it. It's pretty common knowledge that the anti-adult industry push is a fundamental one backed by religious groups. They tend to be the only ones who constantly claim that adult industry workers are inherently damaged goods. 

Short of disproving that claim - which has no relevance on the actual legal restrictions put on the adult industry short of the requirement that actors be at least 18 years old, the study is in fact irrelevant. Everyone in the entertainment industry (myself included) knows that it is actually the adult niche that drives technology as it relates to the distribution and consumption of entertainment content across the board. Innovations in access to streaming media, torrents, DVD technology, etc were primarily because the p.orn industry was the first to utilize paid or ad supported content streaming, migration to DVD vs VHS, etc.

So, the only people worrying about this (not including the general debate in this thread) are holier than thou moralists who try to make an excuse for why someone would want to work in that industry. It's like they really can't believe that some people genuinely enjoy getting paid to have sex.

If we're really going to debate the ethics of p.orn, we should really discuss how little most of the actors actually make considering the heightened level of danger they put themselves into on a daily basis. With the exception of the very well known ones, most get paid a one-off fee. They don't get residual royalties off of their streaming content or DVD sales. And they have NO rights to the content. So, long after they leave the industry, they have no control over what the production house chooses to do with said content. Case in point (and I forget the chick's name) a former actor became a born again Christian, yet her movies are still being promoted - and in fact the production company she used to work with is promoting them harder than ever because she's no longer in the industry. Yet, she sees not one dime of that money.

Compare that to mainstream actors who CAN and do successfully negotiate for residual and syndication rights. (i.e. Friends, Seinfield, Sopranos, etc.)
