How can female porn stars keep from getting pregnant?

I have always wondered what female porn stars or even any porn star uses for birth control. For instance, we all know that no birth control is 100% effective and some female porn stars leave the industry to have kids so they are not totally sterile. Any ideas on this?

The only thought may be using IUD's or Depo shots?

Unlike X-rated movies of the past, few videos today depict a man ejaculating. The common theme nowadays is to pound away for a very long time and then when he is about to climax, switch to a new couple and new situation.

If a man does ejaculate, it is out in the open and not inside the vagina. These could be two reasons how a woman prevents becoming pregnant.

Most of them, I am certain, are some hormonal system or IUD plus they keep lubricated with spermicidal vaginal jelly. They are no more likely to become pregnant than any sexually active woman and they handle it the same way.

The real question is why most porn flicks do not show condoms and STD is a greater than pregnancy with the people in that system.

Porn is just like the nightly news - it's all propaganda. Dare I say it's also part of the liberal agenda....

Don't want to ignite a political argument here. I just don't really like or agree with pornography.

Thanks Sera, Dancindoc, and Brandye for your answers. Brandye is right about STD's. Look at the porn stars from the 70's and 80's that have died from AIDS etc. I know that Vivid Productions film movies with condoms involved while others do not. While I am not an avid pornograhic movie watcher I do support the value it has for some couple's romantic delights.

... :confused: What?

Propaganda of what, liberal agenda why and why don't you agree with pornography (you are totally free not to like it)?

I don't know about porn from a political aspect, but I do think that it gives people (mostly younger kids) a false expection of sex and physical aspects of it.

It's propaganda designed to make the youth (and older folks too) think that sex is something you should have casually and even worse, without protection. It also depicts that it's normal to have dozens of sex partners. I also believe that alot of pornography is degrading toward women, and some of it is racist such as black men taking out their cultural issues on white women, or white men trying to degrade black women (although the latter occurs less frequently). Most pornography (at least that I've seen) depicts people, especially women, as objects to be used. I don't find most pornography a turn on, I find it upsetting. And don't even get me started on the simulated rape stuff - it's disgusting, and I feel that it's part of the problem that we have so many rapists. And as for the rapists, my solution for them would be a quick and merciful .45ACP.

Sorry for the soapbox rant, but I have alot of years of resentment built up on certain issues, and this is one of them.

DAMN!

I don't like porn either, but I've never heard it put that way before. I can agree and the degradation and racism issues. Disgusting.

Wrong and wrong. First, it's supposed to make the idea you can have it any time in any place, and the protection depends on the Company. Some always have protection some don't.

Look around. It happens since before Christ. And there's nothing wrong with having sex partners, as long as you're not cheating anyone and do it wisely.

The one designed for a target group of men, yes.

[quote]and some of it is racist such as black men taking out their cultural issues on white women, or white men trying to degrade black women (although the latter occurs less frequently).[/quote]

Ok, not even going to debate this one. You're wrong, but I don't want to heat up this debate.

How is an Aria Giovanni lesbian movie degrading to women?
How is a dominatrix movie with a woman beating the crap out of some guys treating women as objects?
See more and don't generalize.

That's fine, you don't have to like it.

You got it in reverse. Because some people are turned on by some things, the companies provide. You are presenting this as if porn makes it happen.

Agree with this one.

If there aren't buyers, there is no porn. Think about THAT.

well I personally prefer amateur stuff and no not the faked amateur that amounts to yet more faked up porn but real young couples that are enjoying themselves with a camcorder, i find anything degrading or that is a false representation ( like exagerate ohhs and ahhings) a total turn off.

as for not getting pregnant (the original question) thats not hard nowadays they is much more out there than just condoms the problem IS only condoms protect from desease

i'm more curious as to how they keep from getting STDs...i very rarely see condoms being used.

as for the whole being degrading issue...the first time i saw a really hardcore degrading porn scene i was appaulled...but i'v discovered that some women really do enjoy it. afterall, pornos are shot with consenting partners aware of what is going to take place beforehand...

Some is degrading/racist, but some isn't.

I agree REAL rape is the most horrible thing a woman can go through I assume. I say I assume because I have never been raped...BUT I do find "forced sex" to be a HUGE turn on to me! Some women like to be dominated or "forced" into having sex, then they turn out to like it.

There are so many different types of porn out there. Something more soft-core, with a romantic story behind it seems like something you'd prefer. Like a romantic movie that just shows the sex scenes instead of cutting them? Believe me there is porn like that, and many other types that are not degrading or racist.

I'm not saying you have to like it, but do not judge others who do. :)

seconded :D

You have to analyze what the

You have to analyze what the percentages in birth control statistics represent. Do they represent 99% of the time it will prevent A WOMAN from getting pregnant, or 99 out of 100 WOMEN using it will not become pregnant? (Personally don't know which) Because if it is the latter that is actually more effective than you think. Also the mandatory "this may not work 100%" spiel is a legal tactic for the company protecting itself and the 1% who do get pregnant may be from user error not product failure. Porn stars would probably have very low incidence of user error from the familiarity with the product.

Read a bit

In the birth control section you will find threads on the effectiveness of various forms of birth control in real life, as opposed to theoretical effectiveness. The standard in medicine and sexology is the number of women who will become pregnant in a year of 100 women using that method. As a baseline, if 100 women having regular sex for a year are unprotected, 85 will become pregnant. Using condoms alone, 15 will become pregnant; using spermicide alone, a few more than 15 will become pregnant; on the pill, three will become pregnant.

User error accounts for the difference between theoretical and real life effectiveness. For instance, most condom "failures" are actually the result of lingering a while after ejaculation allowing leakage around the open end; hormone "failures" include erratic taking of the pill or taking certain anti-biotics that counteract the pill. I, too, would guess that user error is low among porn stars and they always have abortion for a backup.

Consenting???

Pornography uses women, and some men, like cattle. How 'consenting' is being poor and needing to find a job in pornography? The average 'girl' lasts 2 and 1/2 years in the industry. The effects of drugs, drink and low self-esteem must also be taken into account. And does a 'girl' get to turn down movies? I strongly doubt it. She's owned and is only kept as long as she 'producces'. Once that stops, she's back out onto the streets from whence she came. And I'm sure there pregnant pornography as well as forced sex and even snuff films. NOT all fun 'n games.
