The 29-year-old porn star is open to sharing about her profession

One question popped up about her life as a sex worker, asked by one of her girlfriends. In response, Reid said the thing she loved the most about being in the adult industry is that it taught her about her body, herself, acceptance, and love.

As a kid, Reid was always attracted to everybody and everything. But she was too shy and intimidated to admit that. Pornography kind of helped her be around a community where people accept and love their sexuality and themselves.

She also realized that being a sex worker was just like playing basketball or any other profession. It's just an activity people do. Reid expressed her gratitude towards the opportunity that the adult film industry has given her.

Speaking about her least favorite thing about being a sex worker, Riley Reid pointed at the negative stimuli that come along with it. People may assume that because she's a porn star, she has no political opinion. Or because she does porn, she does not care about the environment or that her opinion doesn’t matter.

The porn star finds it hard to date due to her fame in the industry

On top of that, Reid found it challenging for her to re-establish herself as a “human with a voice and feelings that matter". To her, the hardest thing about working in the porn industry is being able to “own your identity and let the world around it see you.”

Reid has always been open to sharing about her life as an adult performer. She talks with fans about it all the time on her social media channels. In another YouTube video, the porn star talked about how working in the adult entertainment industry affects her whole life.
