As I write this I am thinking, I have been considering retirement for a long time, my 59th birthday is coming later this month and I was reading one of my old interviews yesterday, It was in Adam Film World way back when I first got into the biz in the early 90s. When asked how long I expected to stay in porn, my answer was “until it stops being fun.”
I have to admit it stopped being fun a long time ago, between the content thieves, the danger faced simply performing and the cut throat nature of the biz these days I have to wonder why I am still here. I am making plans to exit this year, don’t know when but I am pretty sure this is the last year unless something changes, frankly I’d rather be fishing, diving and enjoying my dotage doing the things I love.
But it isn’t just that, when I see what the FSC is perpetrating on performers, it saddens me greatly. The people put trust in The FSC and in my opinion The FSC abuses that trust greatly, to me it is not much different than puppies in a puppy mill, except that these are people, not puppies.
It used to be such a fun business, filled with good people, the best friends I have had in my life have all come as a result of being in this biz, my life was saved by someone I met as a result of being in this biz, and I mean that literally, it really was. I guess all good things must come to an end.
