Watch Bree Olson’s Emotional Video About Working In The Porn Industry

Bree Olson is opening up about her adult film career. Charlie Sheen’s former girlfriend has released a raw and candid video about the perils she’s faced since leaving the industry behind.

The former adult star revealed that she’s not sure if she can ever move on from her porn career. Bree Olson, whose real name is Rachel Marie Oberlin, breaks down as she shares the stigma she faces for her porn past in the heart-breaking video for the Real Women Real Stories YouTube channel. She claims that some people would label her a “pedophile.”

“When I go out, I feel as if I’m wearing ‘slut’ across my forehead. There are days to weeks at a time where I don’t leave my house because I don’t feel like facing the world of what has been created out there for me.

“People treat me as if I am a pedophile. They don’t treat me like I’m an ex-sex worker. They treat me like I would somehow be damaging to children.”

An adult film career has been lucrative for Olson. She has starred in over 200 adult movies, posed in the pages of Playboy and Penthouse, and is reportedly worth $5 million. But Olson admits that having that stigma attached is not worth all the money and fame she’s received.

“‘I gave up between $30,000 and $60,000 a month and I could just go back to porn today and still make that. I could go back to porn and make $20,000 just in one week if I wanted to this week and I don’t because that’s how much I don’t want my photos on the internet.”

In the same video, Bree warns young women who are curious about entering the adult film industry.

“Don’t do porn,” the 29-year-old begs into the camera. “As much as I understand that you want to embrace your sexuality and say screw the man, I can do what I want with my body, you’re going to have to deal with a life of crap in front of you.”

On Thursday, March 24, 2016, Bree Olson stood in as guest columnist on the Daily Dot, in which she wrote in-depth about her life after the porn industry. She claims that “porn didn’t hurt me. The way society treats me for having done it does.” In the same article, Olson reveals that she’s struggling to find a job and keep afloat, despite the reports that she’s one of the richest adult film stars in the industry.

Last year, she posted an open letter on Twitter advising young women to stay away from the porn industry. In the letter, Bree warned her fans that they will face double standards if they want to transition into the mainstream film and modeling industry. Even in an industry where sex is more out and open than anywhere else, the double standards still exist.

Bree Olson left the porn industry in 2011, when she began dating Charlie Sheen. The couple met when he contacted her for a meet-and-greet at his Sherman Oaks home. Olson then decided to leave Sheen later that year when he started having his public meltdown became focused more on his comedy tour than on her. She famously broke up with the actor by sending him a text message and leaving a note (along with his watch) inside his home.

The actress made headlines late last year after she admitted on Howard Stern’s radio show that she had unprotected sex with Charlie Sheen, unaware of his HIV diagnosis. Bree revealed that the Two and a Half Men star never disclosed his status to her, and that they slept “together every single night” when they were dating.
