Adult entertainment stars have shared the same answer when asked about the negative impact their career had on their lives.

Several X-rated stars have candidly opened up about how their experiences in the industry have affected their personal lives.

In a now-deleted YouTube video, famous adult star Riley Reid, whose real name is Ashley Mathews, emotionally revealed her bitter regret over her career.

Speaking to her viewers, the actress, whose real name is Ashley Mathews, said: "A lot of the times when people ask me if they should do p*rn, I tell them 'no.'"

The 31-year-old explained her reasoning: "I tell them that it makes life really hard, it makes dating really hard, it makes your family life really hard, it makes intimacy hard. If you're putting yourself out there and the world is now judging you, you have to be okay with being shamed every day of your life."

While Reid confessed that dating was difficult, she is now happily married and is a mother. However, she previously admitted that she was worried about how people would treat her kids in the future.

"I don't even want to have children, because I do p*rn, because I'm worried of the way that people will treat my child," Reid said.

Adult actress Arianna Kody echoed a similar sentiment during an interview with MARCA, sharing that her occupation "kind of ruined sex in my personal life," with fellow actress Nikki Stern agreeing.

Rubi Valentine also chimed in, revealing that she’s only now "getting back to basics" in terms of intimacy after years in the world of p*rn, adding that she now really likes "holding hands and kissing".

It's not just female stars that are speaking up about the negative impact of the adult industry as male entertainer Christopher Zeischegg, also known as Danny Wylde, revealed he also finds it hard outside of the set.

Zeischegg shared that he was being paid $4,000 to film six days a month when he noticed that taking Viagra, a medicine used to treat erection problems, caused problems in his personal sex life.

He ended up developing the uncommon condition of Priapism due to the medicine, which is a prolonged erection of the penis, as reported in the Mayo Clinic.

Zeischegg ultimately left the industry on medical advice after he landed himself in hospital with the condition, and realized that he developed performance anxiety without the little pill.

"There should have been no reason that I needed to do that," he told The Independent. "But I had developed this idea about myself, and I didn't want to let my partner down, or make them think that I was anything less than a 'p**n star' in bed."
