Whilst I was watching Kelly's scene from girlsdoporn.com, a question popped into my head.
Kelly gets asked whether she has a boyfriend (yes) and if he knows she's making a porno (no). She's then asked what he would do if he found out. "He would kill me," she says. (I assume and hope that's figurative.)
Now, I've seen the same questions asked and answered many times. Sometimes it's about boyfriends, sometimes it's about parents. Sometimes the BF or parents know and are cool with it, at least according to the girl's response. Sometimes, as in Kelly's case, they don't know and wouldn't be cool with it, again, at least according to the response.
Now, bearing in mind that she can say anything she wants to say, or that the director tells her to, I'm sure that, in at least a few cases, the girl is being correct when she says that the people she's close to don't know she's in porn and would be angry/disappointed/upset to find out.
That's the lead-in to the question: When we hear such answers, how frequently is it BS, and how often is it true? And, when it's true, can anyone with even a passing familiarity with porn and the internet these days (coupled with the easy identification that tattoos can assist with) really hope to keep even one video appearance secret?

I don't know how much to believe in most interviews. I have a hard time believing that a girl will willingly take the chance to piss off her boyfriend by doing porn since he's bound to find out about it sooner than later. There is almost no way for anyone to do porn and it remains a secret. You might have pulled it off when it was only in theaters or on video but the internet and all the social networks has made that impossible.
I maybe jadded but I tend to belive that the boyfriend is her suitcase pimp more than anything else.

Don't believe anything you see or hear in a porno...

It's all true. Everything that happens and is said in porn is true and real.

Most of my family knows, and my fiancee knows. It's kind of surprising, however, how many people DON'T know. The friends that I've told all have expressed surprise that images I've shown them of me were actually me, but they don't usually see me naked, so it's not too far a stretch.
As for pat362s assumptions that porn girl's boyfriends are suitcase pimps, I think the term gets thrown around a bit too much. If I ask my man to take time out of his work day to look up a contact number or read over an email for me to make sure it sounds professional, is he a suitcase pimp? What about Sophie Dee's husband? Because he runs his own agency is he a suitcase pimp? Girls in this biz may hook up with deadbeats from time to time who try to control or profit off of them, and those guys are suitcase pimps, but if one of us has a guy who has found a way to be supportive while being productive on his own, that's just a regular guy who probably has the best sex of his life every day. Just sayin...
As for the question at hand, it's probably all made up, but there's no industry wide standard about it that I've seen so far...

Clayra: Love your input about the business in here! Keep that up!

I can see how some girls might think that they might be able to keep doing one scene for a somewhat obscure site, such as girlsdoporn, for example, from friends and family. I think it's unrealistic and wouldn't be willing to take the chance, but I wouldn't think it unreasonable that an 18-year-old girl might not realize the pervasiveness of the Internet, how quickly information can spread, and how long it hangs around.
But I think that probability diminishes rapidly the more scenes she does.
To extend the question, Clayra, what do you think the chances are that a girl who says he BF or parents would be upset is actually telling the truth?

There have been the odd incidences of newer girls doing a few shoots and then having to "retire" prematurely because parents or other family members discovered what they were doing. They did indicate that they had not expected to be found out. Three cases I can recall were Laura Love Miley Ann and Nicole Grey. In those cases probably extreme naivete.
There are others like Dixie Daytona that do one or two shoots and are never heard from again. I often wonder whether her boyfriend in Kentucky ever found out what she got up to during her vacation in LA.
For the most part though I suspect those words are put in the script to make the scene more interesting.

I think that it depends on the site more than anything. If that's part of the site's schtick, it's probably just for show, even if it's true. Just like most offices, bathrooms, and locker rooms are just sets in porn, but no one calls it a set, they just say stuff like "Clayra eats out her gym teacher in the locker room". If it's a candid interview like Ed Powers does, it's probably true though. As for the pervasiveness of the internet, any girl who does porn and sincerely doesn't think it'll get around is either living under a rock or just that dumb. It was one of the things I've been trying to use to help get myself work in the industry even with the crappy economy. I've been in porn for about 4 months, and I had a Freeones page before I ever shot a scene in LA. I used to do webcam shows, and I taped one, had my BF edit it, and uploaded it to one tube site. That one video is now on thousands of other sites, and as I hoped, it has made my name one of the few for new girls that actually comes up.
I'm not an 18-20 year old who could pass for 16, and I'm not an established name, so in order to get more work, I figure name recognition is the way to go. Look at Grace Wood, who is a friend of mine who's been in the biz a few months more than me. She's 22 and doesn't fit those categories either, but I'm easier to find than she is just because I put some time into getting my name out there.
I think it's easier for girls, like Grace did, to overestimate the pervasiveness of the internet, but I don't think anyone getting into in the biz these days would underestimate it... We're the girls who have grown up on myspace and youtube after all.
