Synopsis

Since the premiere of the After Porn Ends documentary series in 2011, it has been hailed as one of the most revealing pieces of film about life after pornography. In many ways, that is correct—but it also does not do the film justice. If you haven’t seen After Porn Ends 2, you owe it to yourself to do so as soon as possible. You don’t even need to be familiar with porn or the adult entertainment industry to appreciate what this film has to offer.

What happened in After Porn Ends 1

The first After Porn Ends documentary was released in 2010 and it followed the lives of twelve former porn stars. The film explored what happened to them after they left the industry and how they were able to adapt to normal life.

It looked at the challenges that come with being an ex-porn star, like being stigmatized for your past career choice or struggling with emotional damage from having been involved in abusive scenes.

After Porn Ends 2 also looks at porn’s effects on its performers, both mentally and physically. But this time around there are fewer people profiled (eight), making the second installment more concise and easier to follow than its predecessor.

How does this documentary compare to the first installment?

If you thought the first After Porn Ends was eye-opening, just wait until you see the sequel. After Porn Ends 2 picks up where the first one left off, catching up with some of your favorite (and not so favorite) porn stars to see what they’re doing now.

What’s interesting about this documentary is that it brings light to both sides of the coin: What happens when porn stars leave their chosen profession and enter into normal society? How do people outside of porn view them?

Was it worth making?

If you’re at all interested in the adult film industry, then After Porn Ends 2 is definitely worth watching. The sequel to the original documentary, which came out in 2010, features even more interviews with some of the biggest names in porn.

Also absent are younger stars like Sasha Grey who have retired from the business.

A call for more research on adult film performers

Although the adult film industry has been around for decades, there is still surprisingly little research on the effects it has on performers. After Porn Ends 2 sheds some light on this often taboo topic, and makes a compelling case for why we need to know more.

6 key takeaways from the film

1. The adult film industry is bigger than ever before.

2. Technology has changed the way people consume pornography.

3. While the industry may be booming, many performers are struggling to make ends meet.

4. Mental health is a real issue for many former porn stars.

5. There’s more to life than just porn.

6. Get your tissues ready.
