After Porn Ends

After Porn Ends poster

This documentary plays out just about as expected. Several stars from the porn industry’s past are interviewed in a “Where are they now” fashion. Some have thrived since the camera stopped rolling while others are a mess, most of whom were a mess before the glamour of taped sex entered their lives.

Asia Carerra details leaving the business and finding a small, far away town to blend in, but even there she is recognized from her dirty past. Crissy Moran is a young ex-porn star who left the business for the church in 2006. She has faced criticism from both sides.

Randy West, a male porn star, had some of the most interesting viewpoints on the industry both positive and negative, while also confirming he has slept on camera with over 3,000 women.

The sad and startling section of the film details just how much money can be made by the stars at the top and how unprepared most of them are to deal with it. Several stars, such as Mary Carey and Raylene, look back with vastly different viewpoints on their time in the industry and how it shaped their lives. Both end up back in porn not long after filming their spots for this film.

If you have seen a couple episodes of VH1 “Behind the Music”, you can predict how this film will play out, though most of the actors are easier to look at than Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. After Porn Ends is an interesting concept and a well done film, but it ends without a climax.
