For every porn actress who thinks she can stand in the light, there are two dozen who are used up and tossed aside.
You are the strong one. That's very good for you, Candy. Or... Arlene, or whatever your name is. But how many women do you know who've done what you've done, whose outcome was not yours? Where are they now? And how many are better because of this brave new world, and how many are worse? And, remember, for every playful little scene of some self-actualized Red Riding Hood, vanquishing her fears and inhibitions, there are a dozen videotapes up on Eighth Avenue of women being gang-banged or tortured, or made to fuck everything. What about those women? Are you speaking for them?

The cops make their quotas... but the basis for these arrests isn't solicitation. It's being a woman, in public, looking a certain way. The pimps and the johns? They're never arrested.
Now that the movies are on tape, there's no such thing as an ex-pornstar.
Every woman's got a price tag hangin' on her ass.
You need to get back on the horse and ride, show people what they haven't seen before.
No one ever paid me to act. I knew what I was there to do.
I didn't think that the script would get so dark.
- It's a tragedy.
Yeah, it is. There's not a lot of tragedy in porn.
The lawyers say you're completely dead. As a fucking post.
And the mayor's okay running for reelection on a platform of doing nothing about AIDS?
