QUOTES:

“Talking about these experiences can help other women who are naive or came from a shitty situation, a broken home or trauma to see the downsides and not glamorize the sex industry. I just want them to draw from my experience.  That’s why I talk about it; otherwise, I would prefer not to. “ - Lana Rhoades

“A lot of people say, “Self-care and love yourself.” But really, self-care, love yourself, work on yourself. There’s a thousand other ways to make yourself more amazing besides changing your exterior.” - Lana Rhoades
