BREE OLSON EXPLAINS HER LIFE AFTER PORN INDUSTRY

“When I go out I feel as if I’m wearing ‘slut’ across my forehead,” she confessed in a new video which is part of the Real Women, Real Stories YouTube video series. Her honest description of the ways she’s been slut-shamed and shunned by society because of her former career in porn are eye-opening.

She broke down in tears throughout the video while explaining how she was treated by others: “I have really gotten to the point where 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,” she says in the video. “I get so disappointed when I go out and I meet a new friend and it turns out they don’t want to be my friend anymore…People treat me as if I am a pedophile. They don’t treat me like an ex sex worker. They treat me like I would somehow be damaging to children.”

The actress, who was making $30,000-$60,000 a month confessed she was struggling to find work. She tweeted screenshots of nurses losing their jobs due to their work in the industry. She captioned the photos, “Every time I think about going back to school I Google sex workers experience and I’m back to the drawing board.”

The actress agreed to do the video because she wanted to shine light on how taboo the world sees her industry.

When she was asked how she would prefer to be treated, she took a moment to collect herself between tears and answered: “I wish people would treat me like they would treat a married registered nurse with 2.5 kids in Indiana. That’s how I wish people would treat me.”

The creator behind the YouTube series, Matan Uriel, explained to CNN that he developed the series to empower women by highlighting their struggles, challenging stereotypes and raising money for causes that support girls’ and women’s education.

“Today, unfortunately women are seriously under-represented across nearly all sectors of society around the globe. I believe that with that proper exposure, we can minimize the destruction and even reverse some negative trends against women,” he told CNN. “In our next episodes, we want to keep spotlighting provocative stories about women that you don’t get to access through magazines and reality television.”
