LOS ANGELES — Brooklyn Lee, the reigning XBIZ Female Performer of the Year, has announced plans to retire from porn.

Lee posted her intentions on the adult industry discussion forum, Adult DVD Talk, on Wednesday. Her agent Mark Spiegler also confirmed her plans to XBIZ.

In Lee's post, she said, "... Also yes, I have retired. Off to other things and greener pastures. It's time for me to focus on the bigger picture; my education. Just going to school and being me. All is well... the adult industry is simply no longer a place I belong or wish to be."

Her post continued, "There has been some speculation that I quit because of my long-time boyfriend, who is a figure behind the scenes in the industry. I would love to tell you that I am a fully liberated woman who does what she pleases and can easily separate work life from home. I won't lie to you. While the man that I love never once asked me to quit performing, I did do so in part because of him. When you reach a point where you loathe heading to set because there's only one person in the world you have any desire to have sex with, it's time to move on from sex work... so I did.

"I take with me many fond memories and unique experiences; I wish the very best to my friends that remain in adult. I came, I saw, I conquered... and now I'm done."

Lee said to look for Vivid Entertainment's release of its remake of "Behind the Green Door," a movie in which she was the lead, this September.

"I would say that it's the best work I've ever done. Nothing I could ever do could compete with it... so why bother?

"You can also see me in Deborah Anderson's 'Aroused Project,' on Hulu, iTunes and theaters near you. The whole thing turned out really beautifully."

Lee was unavailable for comment at post time. However Spiegler said that the star had indicated she would perform in one more movie before bowing out, noting she is scheduled to be the lead in Evil Angel's "Voracious 2" which begins shooting later this month. Lee earned critical acclaim for her lead role in the original "Voracious," an episodic web series directed by John Stagliano that also was released on DVD in 2012.

Lee has performed in more than 130 movies since beginning her porn career in 2010. Last week, she won a pair of honors at the 29th annual X-Rated Critics Organization Awards, taking home Superslut and Orgasmic Oralist trophies.

Spiegler said Lee has already enrolled in college on a pre-med track.

"You can’t do porn forever, and this is like planning ahead for the future and she will do well in school," he said. "She's very smart and really good at writing."
