Female porn stars have high self-esteem and religious values (CBS)
The study compared 177 porn actresses to a sample of women based on age, race and marital status.
According to the Toronto Sun, researchers shot down the ideas that women who work in porn came from broken families or hostile backgrounds.
The study also found that women working in porn tried more drugs, had their first sexual experience at a younger age and had more sexual partners than those in the sample group.
I always knew this.

6. I worked as a cocktail waitress at a strip joint in the early 80s.
Counting out a few girls that were heavily hooked on drugs (and the manager usually got rid of them in short order), those ladies didn't fit the image of damaged goods either. I think a great deal of it was a sort of sisterhood. With a few exceptions, they didn't really fit the stereotype many people have of backstabbing, jealous immoral Jezebels. I never even met a stripper named Jezebel. They had their own support system and, sure, they were pretty hard-edged and cynical. Women are judged a great deal by our looks and body images. Having men slobbering all over you kind of gives you a mega boost to your ego. Even some of the girls that would have been thought plain or average in the normal workplace shone on the dancing stage. And many of them were single mothers like I was that were working at what paid best in Reagan's economy. If I hadn't had two cousins working as bouncers in the club, I might have given a thought to trying it out myself.
