A month or so ago, I gave you stories from kids of porn stars who talked about how they found out their mom and/or dad's profession, but now a new Reddit thread recently hit the webs involving kids of some X-rated actors/actresses talking about what it was like growing up with a parent being paid to bone on camera.

As you could probably guess, the revelations are funny, awkward, a little sad and very entertaining, so enjoy.

  • "Knowing my mom is a pornstar isn't that bad, but knowing I was conceived at a creampie gangbang and will never know for sure who my father is is the hard part."

  • "Finally, one I can answer! My father was a porn director, so I hope this still counts. To be honest, I didn't learn all that much about porn specifically (most of that knowledge was gleaned the same way that every other young man stumbles upon it), but I learnt a fuck load about lighting, makeup, camera work and sound design. Porn has far more rigorous lighting requirements than almost any other genre, because without clothes, you have to do everything possible to make everything as appealing as possible. Lighting is always from above and about 30° to the left or right of the actors (diffused normally, unless it's any kind of bdsm or fetish video, where a particular look is sometimes desired). This means that the chin of the female actress will normally be highlighted, which, with proper contouring, can subconsciously draw attention away from anything that is harder to cover, like a larger forehead or broad shoulders. It also casts the most light onto the upper breast, while darkening the under-breast, which gives an impression of greater depth than is usually the case. In porn, it is difficult to capture only the sound that you want, without rustling or squeaking of furniture, or excessive grunting (which to my fathers annoyance is becoming more and more common). This is normally re-recorded in post, and the clips are then given to an engineer to combine with the original audio, which gives a cleaner result. The big give away that this is the case, is if there is ever foot tapping or any kind of consistent, repetitive knocking that should be present, but isn't, or is very faint. Every porn star is wearing a metric fuck load of makeup (about 2.445 imperial fuck loads for those of you who are free), and it works. That penis is not really that good looking, it's as bumpy and veiny as yours, the trick is non-water soluble concealer. This is used to hide minor blemishes, and occasionally a fine detailer is used to accentuate the base of the head, which gives the impression of width along the shaft. Women too, will often need a lot of makeup to hide scars or marks, though it's possibly less than you may expect, especially when you remember these women are professional actresses, they have the same aesthetic (if not higher) goals as mainstream actresses. Obviously this won't apply to all cases, and just like any other genre, there are plenty of directors who do it differently to achieve a certain look, but in the case of most general pornography, this will hold about true."

  • "I was so angry when I found out my mother was a pornstar: I went into a fit of blind anger and just started punching the wall, breaking both my arms."

  • "Most of the answers are fake, so I'll try to actually answer. I do porn and know lots of people in the industry with kids. Most of them turned out okay. That sounds bad but remember most people I know from my "normal" life (non profits and the education system) had normal kids. You will always have shitty parents, it's not exclusive to porn. The older kids 18+ that I've talked to say it's kinda weird but mostly normal to them now. It's not like they Google their mom or anything. It's just part of life. It's still legal and lucrative at the end of the day and a lot of these kids had nice upbringings. Just depends on who you ask. Some will tell you it was fine and some will say it was a nightmare, depends on who the parent is."

  • "I did most of the chores in the house except laundry. I was not allowed in the basement for any reason. Of course that means I snuck down... Our basement was a dungeon. Poles, straps, things to straddle, walls of toys and tools...and the smell of incense and something else I didn't know at the time. Sometimes my mother had clients when I would normally be home (she usually didn't). We had a code. I would check the mail box. If there was an envelope with my name on it, it meant that it contained money and a time for me to return. I would take the money and go down the street to a bookshop where I would order a wrap and do my homework in their cafe. At the time I didn't mind, but as I got older I realized it wasn't really the best thing for me and that it wasn't a safe solution. A few times she forgot to leave me an envelope and I walked into...sounds coming from the basement. Sometimes it wasn't a client but rather just someone she wanted to bone. I have seen my mother bent over various pieces of furniture in our living room unfortunately when it just came to a walking into her general sex life. She's also answered the door when I came home to see her in a harness or in her gear. I saw her naked often and she wasn't shy about it."

  • "Not really a big deal. It's the reason I have clothes and food and a home. My parents were always stricter about dating and stuff like that though."

  • "My friends son was a pornstar he's also a bassist in a well known local jam band. Often my buddies (his dad among them) will go up to the younger girls in the audience and go, 'see that boy on bass? He's my [relation here] and he's in porn!' He's not really ashamed of it but he definitely regrets getting caught up in the whole "move to Cali and get into porn," phase that he went through."

  • "In high school we found a video of my friend's mom on the internet involved in a MILF gangbang and that was how he found out his mom use to be a pornstar. I don't know what happened to that kid but it sure was a fun few weeks."

  • "When I was 16 my friend and I Happened across her mom's escort page. About a month later we stayed out late and my friend was stressed about sneaking in. She texted me she thought she was good. Next morning her mom woke her up, she thought she was in trouble. Her mom apologized for not being home the night before. She got arrested for prostitution. After that it was pretty much all out in the open but it was never really talked about."

  • "Not a porn star, but my mom's an escort. It's incredibly unpleasant. Especially finding out after your parents lived huge double lives. She's also a huge hypocrit."

I think I cried when I first found out that my parents worked in a hospital, with my young, dumb mind convinced that they were surrounded by sick and dead people all day long. But growing up with a parent who does/did porn for a living is a little more of a shock than discovering your mom or dad ran heart tests all day.
