Pineapple Support is a mental health support resource for porn stars and other sex workers and Lyra Law stars in the above video that is about the kind of awful social stigmas that the people who make the porn that you love face.
"We wanted to be uncompromisingly honest about the effect stigma has on adult performers," Leya Tanit, founder and President of Pineapple Support told AVN. "The video may be difficult to watch, but so is the reality faced by performers. As our industry knows all too well, sex worker stigma can be life-threatening. Most importantly, we wanted those struggling to know that they are not alone—and that there is help.”
I can tell you that sex worker stigma is a very real thing and that I have faced it personally. It fucking sucks and just hurts a ton.
Pineapple Support offers stigma-free therapy and counselling to porn performers and sex workers. The Pineapple Support listener service is completely free, anonymous and available 24/7. If you are looking for a way to support your favorite porn stars, this is a fine way to do it.
