Mia Khalifa has expressed her aversion to the porn industry. Even though she worked in the adult industry for only three months, it was full of trauma and painful memories.
Khalifa is known for her best work in the adult industry, despite spending only 3 months.
Mia Khalifa shared a video on TikTok recalling the traumatizing memories she had spent in the industry. In the video, she can be seen standing and staring off in with a blank expression on her face.
It is what it was
Her caption says, “That hourly dissociative attack from remembering hundreds of millions of people’s only impression of you is solely based on the lowest, most toxic, most uncharacteristic 3 months of your life when you were 21.”
Her video received mixed comments with some in her favor and some criticizing her for constantly reprimanding the porn industry.
Kendra Sunderland, who also works in the adult industry, wrote on Twitter:
“How the f**k does @miakhalifa trend every time she whines about porn… girl if ur that upset about it close down ur porn sites, have your content removed, change ur name. Stop trying to paint a bad light on the industry cause for some goddamn reason the world only listens to you.”
Mia replied to Sunderland, writing:
“I’m not sure who’s more naive: Me for signing my life away to exploiters, or you for thinking I own any of the rights to the content? I have zero control over it and have been fighting for years to figure out a way to get it taken down.”

Hmm I see Mia Khalifa is trending.
Good time to remind everyone: sex work is work. I'd rather live in a society with porn performers and other sex workers treated as honorable and normal people than the one we have now, which takes advantage of them and trashes them.

To the above tweet, Mia replied, “I’m not against sex work. I’m against the way the sex workers are treated, especially the young ones who want their lives back years down the line.”
In an interview with Hero Magazine, Mia said, “I want people to know that I’m much more than who I used to be, for a few months of my life. [By doing porn], unfortunately, I shot myself in the foot, and I’m never going to be able to have a career that’s not in the public eye.”
Many people came forward and put their support into words.
imagine being a household name in the porn industry bc of how big your videos were in the matter of the THREE months you did porn. can you imagine how much revenue pornhub made off of mia only to give her 12k. 12k… 3 months & a lifetime of regret. mia khalifa deserves better!!

At that time, Mia was the most viewed performer on Pornhub’s website. After retiring from the adult industry in 2015, she started afresh as a sports commentator and social media personality.
But it’s hard to lead a normal life after retiring from the adult industry. With people’s love and support, one can move forward and live a respectable life.
