Hi Shelley [Lubben]:
I respect what you are doing, but I feel you are saying things about the porn world that are not entirely true. I don’t know when you were in porn or what happen in your career to make you say these things about the industry. In my time in porn I have never once been to a set where the director has offered me drugs or alcohol. Nor have i ever seen a girl shooting up, smoking crack, sniffing coke, drinking etc on set.
And I am sure it does go on but I have never seen it nor do i want to.
Honestly if i did see that on set or if i was offered it i would walk right off set. Simply bc of the fact I am sober now for a year and six months do to a small relapse I had last year after being sober for 4 years. At this time I am making my comeback into porn after taking almost 2 years off and want nothing more to continue with my porn career and be even more successful than before. During my two years off I did not struggle I went to cosmetology school, & real estate school and had a normal job working a pharmacy tech like I did before porn.
Also was able to live comfortably bc of all the money I saved working in porn. Right now I am actually working with a producer (mainstream) to film a documentary on my return to porn and my family in general. I am fortunate to have come from a upper class family, with a good up bringing. I feel the need to tell you all this bc you only seem to want to shed light on the bad things in porn instead of focusing on the bad and good. I think it’s people like you that make out industry look so bad when it’s really not. So I think you should try to shed light on both sides now that’s an idea!
Hmm. Is Taryn serious? She writes: “Nor have i ever seen a girl shooting up, smoking crack, sniffing coke, drinking etc on set.”
I’ve seen a lot of drinking on set. The other stuff? No.
Didn’t Taryn check into rehab a year or so ago? Wasn’t it for cocaine? But she never did it on set?
Taryn writes: “During my two years off I did not struggle I went to cosmetology school, & real estate school and had a normal job working a pharmacy tech like I did before porn.”
She was a hooker during her time out of porn.
Taryn writes: “Also was able to live comfortably bc of all the money I saved working in porn.”
I thought she was close to broke.
Much of Taryn’s email strikes me as wish fulfillment.
The reason that Taryn isn’t working in porn now is that she’s super fat.
She doesn’t come from an upper-class upbringing. Her parents were divorced. She lived with her mom.
And no, Shelley Lubben had nothing to do with this article. The stuff was so obvious it wrote itself.
