Mia Khalifa is a global icon who needs no introduction at all. She is a Lebanese-American adult film actress cum model, who is widely loved and admired by many. People are overtly crazy for her tempting and sensuous nature and it is evident from the number of searches. In 2018, she was the second most searched porn artists over Google.
In a recent interaction with BBD HARDtalk, Mia openly talked about her reason for choosing to work in the porn industry. She said:
“I don’t think low self-esteem discriminates against anyone. It doesn’t matter if you come from a great family or if you come from a not-so-great background.”
Mia has left working in the porn industry yet she explains how she fails to have a personal life even after quiting the career.
“I think post-traumatic stress kicks in mostly when I go on public. Because the stares I get, I feel like people can see through my clothes. And it brings me deep shame. It makes me feel like I lost all rights to my privacy, which I did because I am just one Google search away.”
In the same interview, Mia revealed her total figure of income that she earned during her trial at the adult film industry. Despite such a popularity, Mia claims to have earned only a sum of 12000 dollars from her work in the porn industry. She made it public through her Twitter post.
Here’s the post:
People think I’m racking in millions from porn. Completely untrue. I made a TOTAL of around $12,000 in the industry and never saw a penny again after that. Difficulty finding a normal job after quitting porn was… scary. Full interview here: https://t.co/xHK7SmhfrY pic.twitter.com/fwJlyzHznq

The tweet was soon flooded with a lot of response from the wider public. Amidst the millions, the renowned porn star Johnny Sins too digged in for his personal view on Mia’s statement. He remarked:
“As far as shooting for other companies, other than your own, you make a day rate. Thus it depends on how many days/scenes you shoot. If you shoot 12 you make $12k if you shoot 365 you make $365k (on average) that’s why it’s important to shoot your own content, $ for life.”
