VENICE, Calif. Melina Mason has announced her retirement from the adult industry.

She actually stopped performing in December, but didn’t want to make the announcement until she had things going outside the industry.

“I had so many great experiences and met some amazing people, but I became overwhelmed,” she said. “I was shooting up to five times a week, doing interviews and appearances, traveling, going to porn events and my whole life started to revolve around work. I had a hard time separating my porn life from my real life. It gets confusing and honestly I wasn't prepared for how to deal with it. The attention made me uncomfortable, I never wanted fame. I just thought I could get fucked by professionals and get paid for it. That's all I was expecting out of this, I didn't realize how big it was going to get.”

She continued,  "l pride myself on having no regrets in life so when performing didn’t feel good anymore I knew it was time to exit. Porn has helped me grow as a person and discover myself in ways other jobs cannot. I'm really grateful that I had so much opportunity in the industry, the whole experience was nothing short of fascinating.”

Now that she has left the industry she has set herself up as a franchisee in the vending business.

“I own an apartment complex in northern California and a seafood delivery company in N.Y.,” she said. “I've been saving and planning for these investments since I began performing. Ultimately, I want to get married and have a family one day. I am totally content looking after my loved ones and running a household. That's why the businesses I’m involved in now generate passive income. I want to be a self-made house wife.”

She added that she would “really like to thank all the companies, directors, my publicists at Rising Star, and other talent for being given the chance to work together. Big thanks to the award shows for all. I appreciate everything I got out of this business and it changed my life forever. I will always have nothing but great memories of the biz. I’m still active on my Twitter @melina_mason and instagram @melinamason.
