Alana Evans is a sexy blonde pornstar who has been in the industry for a long time. She first got into it through stripping, because her and her husband actually became part owners of a club. She would dance there, where she says she lost her inhibitions. She wanted to do mainstream modeling, but she has a scar from a surgery, so she thought she would not do well there, so she went into porn when she was 21 years old. Now it is almost 20 years later and she has become a figurehead in the biz, serving as the vice president of the Adult Performers Actors Guild, a work safety and workers rights organization based in Los Angeles which works to protect those in the porn industry.
You don’t always associate pornstars with NPR – National Public Radio. Usually those stations have boring interviews and are always talking about the news or politics, but this time it is different! Alana was on the radio to talk about what is going on right now in the porn industry. Through her position, she has special insights and knowledge that are quite interesting to hear about. The interview was part of a series on “Brave New Workers,” which talk about new kinds of challenges faced by people today in the workforce.

Alana is proud of her new position because she loves helping pornstars organize in order to help them get what they want and stay healthy. According to the interview, a big part of her job is explaining to people why pornstars need to organize in the first place. If you are wondering yourself, the reason is that pornstars aren’t paid or treated like employees. They have to buy their own health insurance, and don’t have the protections offered by normal employment. Add that to the fact that it is a controversial industry.
The organization, APAG, is working to do revolutionary work such as bargaining for cheaper prices for medical testing that is required for stars to work on sets, as well as fighting harmful legislation that would demand condoms to be used in all porn movies. The interview is quite interesting whether or not you are a fan of Ms. Evans, and I highly recommend checking it out. I just love it when a pornstar is not only a hottie but also super smart and passionate too!
