Lana Rhoades, a former adult film star, has publicly expressed her desire to delete all her old adult film videos, a sentiment she shared in detail during her interview on the ‘Tap In’ podcast hosted by Harry Jowsey. At 19, Rhoades, whose real name is Amara Maple, moved to Los Angeles and briefly entered the adult film industry, an experience that lasted for about eight months, split into increments of four months.

During the podcast, Rhoades reflected on the pivotal moment that shifted her career trajectory from adult films to influencing. She recalled meeting a YouTuber who earned significant amounts for simple social media posts, which starkly contrasted with the remuneration she received for her roles in adult films. This realization prompted her to reconsider her path and ultimately led her to exit the industry in pursuit of a more fulfilling and respectable career in social media.

Rhoades’s decision to leave, however, did not erase the digital footprint of her past. Despite her success as an influencer, her previous work in adult films remains accessible, impacting her public image and personal dignity. This accessibility has proven difficult for Rhoades, especially as it does not translate into any financial benefit for her, with platforms like Pornhub continuing to host her videos without her having legal recourse to remove them.

The emotional toll of her past involvement in the adult film industry is evident in Rhoades’s candid admission of her regrets. She expressed a profound desire to reclaim her dignity and respect, lamenting that if possible, she would sacrifice everything to erase her association with the adult film industry and prevent people from viewing her in that context.

Rhoades’s experience highlights broader issues within the adult film industry, which she has criticized as being ‘100 percent fake’ and exploitative, treating actors like ‘circus acts’. Her statements add to the ongoing conversation about the realities of the adult entertainment industry and the long-lasting effects it can have on individuals’ lives and careers.
