Mia Khalifa has admitted that the three months she spent in the adult film industry when she was 21 will ‘haunt her until she dies.’ Now 27, Khalifa wants to discourage other young women from getting into that line of work because even six years later, there’s not a day that goes by that the 11 movies she did don’t cross her mind and she doesn’t want “another girl to go through that because no one should.”

- Khalifa expressed her regrets in a TikTok video. Mia Khalifa has more than 20 million followers on Instagram, many of whom will have been surprised to see a recent video post in which she admitted that she has serious regrets and PTSD as a result of her time in adult films. “That hourly dissociative attack from remembering hundreds of millions of people’s only impression of you is solely based on the lowest, most toxic, most uncharacteristic three months of your life when you were 21,” she captured the post.
- She further shared her feelings in an Instagram Story post. “Those 11 videos will haunt me until I die, and I don’t want another girl to go through that – because no one should,” she said. “Long story short: don’t do porn. And if you do, don’t do it with a company. Do it for yourself, on your own terms. And if you consume porn, make sure it’s ethical and not from giant corporations who profit off exploiting women. Like your groceries, shop local and direct from the creators.”
- Mia Khalifa says she only made $12,000 from her 11 movies. That’s neither here nor there, but it is pretty disgusting to know that so many young women are manipulated and tricked into an industry that offers them no protection, benefits, or even equality. Sex work is a completely legitimate industry, but it’s one that very much needs regulations to ensure that the people involved in it are protected.
- Khalifa is now working as a sports presenter. She’s a big fan of West Ham football club and was due to marry her partner, chef Robert Sandberg, last month. Unfortunately, that had to be postponed due to coronavirus. Hopefully they’ll be able to tie the knot soon!
