‘After Porn Ends’ Trailer Explores The Long Moment After the Climax

After Porn Ends

In 2007, porn star Sasha Grey went on The Tyra Banks Show as part of her transition into acting that doesn’t require penetration (although she probably hasn’t ruled out working with Lars von Trier just yet). Her blunt defense of the industry as she had navigated started a new conversation about pornography which yielded a lot of discussion and hand-wringing but very little internal change. Still, it would be disingenuous to claim porn doesn’t have a firm place in our culture; it’s an industry that pulls in billions of dollars of proof that it caters to a specific need that’s in high demand.

The new documentary After Porn Ends has taken a look into that fascinating industry from the other side of it. What happens when a porn star wants to quit? By interviewing and examining the experiences of stars like Asia Carrera, Houston, Randy West and others, the film seeks insight into the chapter of their lives after the bright shine of fame wears off.

It sounds a bit like still being in a strip club when the main lights go up. Except the strip club is your life.

The movie has reached over 100m homes in its On Demand run. Check out the trailer for yourself:
