MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — Tasha Reign is featured in a U.K. newspaper commenting on Louis Theroux's "Twilight of the Porn Stars," a one-hour BBC documentary focusing on the fortunes of the adult industry.
Reign, who is a student at UCLA as well as a porn performer, made her comments in the U.K. tabloid newspaper Sunday Sport.
"I would never claim to speak on behalf of all the girls in the industry, but my experience in porn has been nothing but positive," Reign said. "I'm not happy about being portrayed by the BBC as some sort of exploited individual, as it couldn't be farther from the truth. "Everyone at college knows what I do, including the lecturers. No one bats an eyelid," Reign continued. "Which is why I've been so shocked at the reaction I've been getting on Twitter since the Louis Theroux show aired in the UK."
Theroux, who had worked with Michael Moore's "TV Nation" before joining the BBC, previously profiled the San Fernando Valley's adult industry in 1997 as part of his series "Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends," signing with an adult-industry agent as a potential performer and taking a non-sex role in a gay production. In "Twilight of the Porn Stars," Theroux spends time with male veteran performer Tommy Gunn, visits Reign's agency, Direct Models, and looks at performer Jon Dough, who was featured in the "Weird Weekend" program.
"Louis Theroux: Twilight of the Porn Stars" aired on BBC Two Sunday June 10, and is available for online viewing in the United Kingdom at bbc.co.uk.
