Ex-adult star Lisa Ann hopes Elon Musk bans explicit content on Twitter

After Elon Musk reportedly had an offer accepted to buy Twitter, a former adult star has urged the businessman to use his power to ban porn from the site.

Lisa Ann was one of the world’s most prominent porn stars in the 90s, where she enjoyed success starring in spoof scenes as politician Sarah Palin, and winning multiple industry awards.

The star retired from the adult industry in 2014, and has gone on to work in broadcasting, as well as running an OnlyFans page where she recycles old footage to be shared with subscribers.

And, despite finding fame in the industry, she recently called for access to explicit content to be restricted during a monologue on her Dudes Do Better podcast.

“Yes, I did porn for many years of my life, and I’m not hiding my past as people tell me every day on social media when I’m wearing clothes,” she said.

“I’m just evolving, and we’re all allowed to evolve. So my disdain for porn on social media has nothing to do with porn, other than the fact that you are sharing it on platforms that have no age gate.”

Unlike its rival Instagram, Twitter allows consensually produced adult content to be shared on the site – although content can be restricted for viewers who are under 18 or don’t include a birth date on their profiles.

Lisa was critical of this policy, claiming: “Twitter is the largest distributor of illegal content to minors in the world, something I really hope Elon Musk takes a step ahead and says, ‘we’re not doing this anymore’, and if we are, you’ll have to enter in your birthday, there will be an ID situation, there will be levels to this s***, that’s what I’m hoping for.”

Elon announced that he had reached an agreement with the company for a colossal £34billion, and has stated that the purchase was not intended as “a way to sort of make money”.

While on the topic of social media, Lisa also took the opportunity to criticise strangers who send her footage of her old scenes online.

“When people send me my porn, I was there, why would I want it on my timeline? I don’t share it on my timeline because I’m a responsible adult and that’s not what social media is for,” she added.

And, Lisa suggested that by sharing adult star’s work online for free, social media users were “diminishing” the performer’s career, as they had worked hard for that content to be sold to subscribers in order to make a living.
