A former adult actress, Jasmin St Claire, has opined that social media has reduced the glamour associated with pornography.

The porn star, who broke a world record in 1996 after performing sexual acts on 300 men in 24 hours, said the days of porn ‘stars’ are over.

Speaking on the effect of social media on the porn industry, Jasmin said, “I think social media has cheapened so many things and we have lost the glamour we once had in the golden age of adult.

“But it has also given some great people opportunities they may not have had otherwise. There are a lot of porn performers, but the age of ‘stars’ died in the late 1990 or early 2000s.”

Jasmin was inducted into the Adult Video News (AVN) Hall of Fame in 2011 in recognition of her contribution to the porn industry.

She said the recognition is “pretty damn cool” and appreciated her ‘die hard fans’ for their continuous support. She however said she would like to delve into the normal film industry now.

According to her, she took acting classes to improve her acting skills and would love to land a regular movie role.

Ex-adult actress who broke

Her words,

“I did theatre as a kid and always wanted to return.

“So, as I have been out of adult for more than 23 years, I wanted to act again and took classes. I studied Strasberg and Meisner (acting techniques). I also competed the Second City Conservatory Program.”

“I love theatre and TV programs in the UK, so hopefully my RP (Received Pronunciation) and other British dialects will help and get me some work there.

“I would love to do more dramas in Europe. I speak other languages fluently.

“As far as Hollywood, whatever comes my way and feels right, I’ll take! There are so many good opportunities there. The right roles always land in my lap and I apply myself to the fullest.
