Lana Rhoades Opens Up About The Painful Reason She Left The Adult Entertainment Industry

Lana Rhoades has openly discussed the heartbreaking reasons behind her decision to leave the adult film industry, a move that has sparked curiosity and sympathy alike.

Rhoades, now 27 years old, quickly rose to fame after entering the adult film scene in 2016, becoming one of the most searched actresses on P*rnhub within a short period. Despite her rapid success, Rhoades’s tenure as a p*rn star was brief, as she stepped away by the end of 2017 and has since retired.

The reason why Lana Rhoades left adult entertainment is deeply personal and revolves significantly around her mental health.

During an interview on the podcast “Curious Mike,” Rhoades shared the emotional toll the industry took on her mental well-being. The conversation with the host touched on how she managed to “get out” and find her “identity” outside of the adult film business. This was a critical transition for Rhoades, who felt an urgent need to redefine her life’s direction.

Rhoades said, “Because towards the end of it, I started having panic attacks before scenes because I really didn’t want to do them and I didn’t know how to say ‘no I don’t want to do this.'”

The stress of the job pushed her to the breaking point: “[I was] probably going to k*ll myself”

This confession highlights the severe anxiety and stress she experienced, which pushed her to a breaking point.

She added, “So there really was no choice for me; it really was either ‘probably going to k*ll myself’ or just do anything to make something else work.”

For Rhoades, continuing in the industry seemed impossible. Her struggles with her mental health were exacerbated by the nature of her work, driving her to seek a drastic change to preserve her wellbeing.

Since leaving the industry, Rhoades has become a multimillionaire

Since leaving the industry, Rhoades has not only survived but thrived.

She has become a successful internet personality and entrepreneur. She is a mother of one and has launched several business ventures, including an OnlyFans account and the “Three Girls One Kitchen” podcast with Alexa Adams and Olivia Davis.

Her journey from adult film star to successful businesswoman is a testament to her resilience and determination to redefine her life on her own terms.

She says she would trade all the money and fame to have never done adult entertainment in the first place

Despite her success, the shadows of her past career linger. On Harry Jowsey’s ‘Tap In’ podcast in 2021, Rhoades expressed deep regret about her previous work.

She said, “A lot of the videos I have no rights under, otherwise I probably would have deleted them all by now.”

She went on to discuss the loss of dignity and respect she feels, confessing, “I do. I honestly tell people, if I could go back, I would give up everything to have my dignity and respect back, and for people not to be able to see me in that way.”

Lana Rhoades’s story is a poignant reminder of the complexities behind personal choices, especially in industries as scrutinized as adult entertainment. Her candidness in sharing her experiences provides valuable insights into the challenges faced by many within the industry and highlights the importance of mental health awareness and support.
