Porn legend Lisa Ann has announced she is retiring from porn
Today, Lisa Ann made the announcement that she has retired from performing in porn. She made her decision known via her Facebook page, posting pictures of hand-written notes that explained that she was ending her performing career and the reasons behind her decision. As you can imagine, word of Lisa Ann stepping away from porn is a pretty big deal.
I mentioned that Lisa Ann posted a series of hand-written notes that outlined her reasons for retiring from porn. While I could re-post the images of those notes, I’ll instead just provide the transcript. Hand written notes are cool and all, but they’re also a bit hard to read, especially for those of you reading this on a cellphone screen. Anyway, this is what Lisa Ann had to say…
We have had such a personal and intimate relationship for so many amazing years. I couldn’t think of a more personal way to share my thoughts with you than taking the time to hand write you a letter.
I have to start this letter with a Thank You. Thank you for all of the years I have been able to live out my sexual fantasies through fulfilling ours. I have learned who I am sexually by the challenges you have presented me.
I also thank you for the amount of years I have been able to be successful in the adult industry as I know it is your dedication to me that has dictated the success and length of my career.
I also thank you for making me so incredibly strong, independent, and most of all sexy!
2014 will be my last year performing in front of the camera doing sex scenes for you. Yes, I am retiring.
I wanted to tell you first, myself. It took hours a day, months on end, to try to decide how I was going to tell you, while knowing the entire time how ready I am to create change in my life.
Since I know I can’t make us go cold turkey without each other, I will still be doing some personal appearances, the occasional special event webcam show. You will always have access to me on my social media and through my new online store I am launching for you on Christmas Day.
I am also working with Fleshlight and Kiizoo on an interactive product that will give the world a brand new ability at a virtual sexual experience.
As for my overall existance in the industry…I have some unseen scenes that I plan to sprinkle over time on my website; TheLisaAnn.com and I will be working on raising the standards the industry presently has to offer.
It is time for me to take a step back and stand up. I have been working on a project to help empower the performers in the industry. My business partner Jayden James and I will be launching a new consulting company – ThePornStarBootCamp.com.
In my new life I dream of having an undefeated season in Fantasy Football while pursuing my career in Fantasy Sports. You can hear my every Monday night on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio; Sirius 210/XM 87 10pm ET. I plan to work towards a bigger role with the Sirius Family.
My desire to write an incredible work for you to enjoy is everything to me right now. Starting in 2015, it will be my #1 goal for you.
This was a very difficult letter for me to word, write, and actually hand-write for you. My letter of resignation in some way, but the birth of my new life in so many other ways.
It is hard to walk way from something that has been filled with so much adventure, but I know it is time for me to slow down a bit and as they say, “Stop and Smell the Roses.”
Thank you all so much for the life you have allowed me to live for so many years now. As for the years I have strived to make you happy also make it clear. It was all REAL and so is this.
And so am I.
-The Real Lisa Ann
On small favor I ask as I think for many of you I have done many big and small favors for you. Now it’s my turn.
My turn to live your life an I’m able to be out and about. If you see me out, feel free to say hello, but I will only be doing pictures at my events, not in public.
I want to be out with my friends having fun and maybe go on a date without taking a picture with another guy! LOL!
I hope that you understand. It is my turn to be just like all of you!!
Clearly, Lisa Ann has made the decision to go out on top. She is still the number one most Googled pornstar on Earth, currently ranked #1 on PornHub’s Top Pornstar chart, and was just named as the #3 best MILF pornstar of 2014 by Die-Screaming. She could have continued performing in porn into 2015 and beyond and made a shit-ton of money doing so.
But, as she makes clear in her letter, Lisa Ann has decided that it’s time to leave her pornstar days behind. Damnit!
