Synopsis by Mark Deming
Some of the biggest names in X-rated entertainment let down their guard and offer a personal look at their lives, their careers and the business in which they work in this documentary. The Secret Lives of Adult Stars features interviews with 30 actresses and actors from the adult film community as they discuss how they got into the business, what the work is really like, how they feel about their fellow stars, what gives them pleasure, the possibility of sexually transmitted disease (especially AIDS), and the future of the business as it becomes increasingly mainstream. Interview subjects include Asia Carrera, Nina Hartley, Steven St. Croix, Jill Kelly, and many more.
