Ashley Ryder appears in Channel 5’s The Sex Business – a three-part documentary about people who earn money with their bodies and getting intimate with others. Ashley does it for 15 years starring in X-rated films. He likes his job but ensures that those who think that it is nothing but pleasure are terribly mistaken. There is another side of the coin — some people think that porn actors are those who used to be abused a lot in childhood and now they think they don’t deserve anything else. But Ryder assumes that it is also not quite right, nobody forces them to do what they do and they also don’t force themselves to do it. Many of the porn actors just leave it when they are tired and seek more stereotypically normal job. Mr. Ryder, as we said, is not one of those people. He stays in porn industry for 1.5 decades because he believes that he belongs here, he was dreaming about this job for years and he enjoys it. But it is still a job. “It’s a performance, also—you don’t necessarily get to work with people you’re emotionally connected with. Sometimes you have to be on set for eight hours a day, maybe more. It’s not like you walk onto a set, have sex, and walk off again. There’s a lot more to it,” he says.
