Riley Reid has explained why she almost quit the adult film industry.

The 31-year-old became one of the biggest names in the business after joining the industry aged 19.

She’s now established herself as an influencer and has her own clothing brand called Eighteen Plus.

Recently Reid has opened up about her experiences working in the adult film industry and the difficulties she’s faced.

Speaking on the No Jumper podcast, Reid explains how her job caused tensions between her and her ex-boyfriend.

Reid says (via The Daily Star): “My ex was so anti-p***, I almost quit p*** because I thought I hated p***, but then I realised I just hated him.”

The adult film star then recalls how disputes would especially rise after she started doing a**l scenes more prominently.

She continues: “That was where his super, mega insecurities and our relationships started to get on the rocks because it was starting to affect our at-home life.

“You know when you’re doing a**l, you can’t eat certain foods, can’t do certain things.”

Adam22, the host of the podcast, then asks: “So it’s like reminding him of the reality of your job too much?”

Reid agrees with him, before continuing: “But when I have a special a**l scene, I have to tell him ‘I just have to have this, this…’.

“So things like that were triggering because it was like ‘when she isn’t eating normally, that means she has a**l the next day’.

“It was emotionally draining and exhausting.”

The 31-year-old would then quit P***hub prior to starting an OFs page.

Reid is now married to Latvian free-runner Pasha Petkuns and they live in a £4.5 million mansion in Los Angeles.

Before her marriage to Petkuns in 2021, Reid took to her Instagram to explain to her followers what her previous boyfriends thought of her job.

She said: “Never have I ever had a boyfriend who was proud of my job.

“I’ve had two ‘normal’ boyfriends in my adult life, normal being they don’t do p***. Both of which ended in an ultimatum, p*** or them.

“I always chose p***. I’ve struggled with that choice though, wondering if I’ve made the right decision.”

Reid is not the only adult film star to speak about leaving the industry.

Both Lana Rhoades and Mia Khalifa have been open about their experiences working in the business.

Khalifa only worked in the industry for three months and has called it the ‘worst time’ of her life and has expressed her desire for it to change.

Meanwhile, Rhoades has said that adult movies are 100% fake and the stars are treated like ‘circus acts’.
