True to show host Carrie’s explanation that the show deals with “sex, dating and all the things,” the eye-opening episode of “Dick Tales” features Rey discussing her recent marriage, overcoming social anxiety, being a “recovering people-pleaser,“ and her upcoming breast augmentation.
Rey also reflects upon porn star dating, the changes in the adult industry in the wake of #MeToo, and the explosion of the OnlyFans platform. And Rey confirms that porn stars still feel the ick when they receive unsolicited dick pics!
Rey commented, “This podcast was different because Carrie was so open to talking about the reality of being an adult performer. Too often, this industry is glamorized and people are only interested in the fun side of things. It’s so important to have nuanced conversations when it comes to this industry, because just like anything in life, it’s not black-and-white: it’s not all good, and it’s not all bad, but every part deserves to be talked about so that people can better understand our business as a whole.
“For too long, platforms like podcasts have held narrow, one-sided views of the industry and our conversation went in a very different direction than I was expecting. She was very real with me and allowed me to talk openly about the struggles I have had in my career, the things I’m worried about for the future, and the things I would like to see changed about our society that would help our industry. It’s a must-listen for anyone who wants to learn more.”
