Popular TS pornstar Kelly Klaymour calls it a wrap on porn
Kelly Klaymour recently announced that she’s retiring from the porn industry. The announcement came a few days ago via her Tumblr blog. While her career in hardcore porn just began last year, Klaymour explained that her priorities have changed and that she just wasn’t making the money that she thought she would.
In a Tumblr post titled, “Announcing my retirement from the industry“, Kelly Klaymour was short and to the point…
Hello loves, I will be exiting the porn industry at the end of June. I’m currently setting up my final [trades and] scenes with all my known producers in LA/SF. I will also be finishing my feature film within this time frame. I have loved this job far more than any other I’ve ever had, and am so happy for my time spent getting to make great new friends and sexing bodacious babes;)
After her announcement was made, one of her fans posted a question on her Tumblr, asking why Ms. Klaymour had made the decision to step away from porn. This was her response…
A few reasons, only one I’m comfortable sharing is that I want to go back on hormones full time. I’ve been noticing very undesirable physical effects over time, and I’m realizing that I’m only fucking the rest of my life’s passibility over by continuing off of them. Back on hormone replacement = no more boners or cum, so no more porno:/
Also, the whole point of getting into porn wasn’t for the exhibition aspect, or to promote myself as an escort (I don’t escort) but rather was because I thought there was MUCH more money in it and would be able to make the $21k needed for SRS. I have barely been able to pay my bills doing this, and owe back taxes now with zero savings…so this isn’t financially working. This farewell tour will at least get me 1/3 of the way to surgery, and will instill some much needed hope towards achieving my goal<3
As I mentioned above, Kelly Klaymour hasn’t been in porn all of that long, though she certainly has managed to stand out. She was nominated for two 2015 AVN Awards (Transexual Perfomer of the Year and Best Transexual Sex Scene) and was ranked #6 on Die-Screaming’s Top 10 Best Transexual Pornstars of 2014 list. She also was most recently was featured in Trans6uals, the debut porn film from Jamie French’s Deadgirl Productions.
Just like everyone has their own reasons for getting into porn, everyone also has their own reasons for leaving it. Kelly Klaymour was certainly a very talented performer who had the potential to maybe achieve superstar status given enough time and work, but it sounds like she has some very solid and well-thought out reasons for ending her career so soon after it started.
That being said, she will certainly be missed.
