Becoming Belle Knox (Part 1): I Googled How to Be a Porn Star

"While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage."
2 Peter 2:19

Last week, we said we would review the documentary Becoming Belle Knox.  We've watched the first episode and feel it's safe to share (although some of the blurred out porn images allow you to figure out what's going on).  Miram's unconvincing 'no regrets' attitude notwithstanding, the truth about the industry is impossible to conceal:

  • "Every dollar I make goes to tuition."
  • Porn industry has "given me back my sense of self."
    • Author's Note: You say that at 18, we'll see if you're singing the same tune at 25....
  • $4,300 in bills each month.
  • First website was called 'Facial Abuse'...Producer: "Kinda like talked me into it."
  • Her first scene: "It was like a really, really, really rough scene.  Like, I wasn't prepared for how rough it was.  And it was weird, like , having some random photographer basically watch me get my ass kicked on camera."
