'Lust is a monster': Gay porn star quits industry, joins fight against porn
FREE Catholic Classes
An actor who has been featured in dozens of homosexual pornographic films has announced his exit from the industry and his entrance into the anti-porn movement.
Salt Lake City, Utah, (CNA) - Markie More, a porn star of six years, disclosed on Monday that he is now working with Fight the New Drug - an organization that educates about the dangers of pornography addiction.
"I've decided that I'm officially done with the adult industry," said More on Twitter.
"If you're wondering, I've quit because I can no longer promote lustful and deviant behavior. Lust is a monster, and the more you feed it, the hungrier it becomes," he added.
The 26-year-old's former employer, Next Door Studios, still has some already-created pornographic content that may be released in the future, but More says he is not looking back as he exits the industry.
He said he is not out to spread hate but to show an accurate depiction of how pornography harms people.
"I've witnessed porn destroy numerous people, friendships, relationships, families, etc. It does far more harm than good for people," he tweeted on May 18.
QueerTY reported that More's resignation comes five months after he accused the vice president of production at Next Door Studios, Rocco Fallon, of making violent threats. Porn Star Paul Canon said he left for similar reasons.
According to Towle Road, More had previously decided to exit the industry in 2017, but later changed his mind, stating that the porn industry had helped him in self-discovery.
However, recently on Twitter, he said his actions in the porn industry were not always a true representation of himself.
"Unfortunately, telling people you fantasize real love isn't something a studio wants you to say. So, instead I told lies, not even good ones either. I sincerely apologize for misleading you. I will only speak truths from this point forward," he said.
More said he is now recovering from spending the last six years in the porn industry. In his Twitter bio, he directed those suffering from porn addiction to a link for Fight the New Drug.
Founded by Clay Olsen and Jason Carroll, Fight the New Drug has released numerous reports on the correlation between pornography addiction and various negative effects, including increases in violence toward women, distorted sexual tastes, and damaged relationships.
The group describes itself as "a non-religious and non-legislative organization that exists to provide individuals the opportunity to make an informed decision regarding pornography by raising awareness on its harmful effects using only science, facts, and personal accounts."
