Why Do Porn Stars Smile All The Time?

I was listening to a porn star on the radio today. She was all giddy and giggly and talking about her career. Her life. Her loves. Her fame.

Then it occurred to me that I’ve never, ever, seen an unhappy porn star.

In interviews they’re always smiling. Always happy. Always bubbly in a ‘tee-hee’ sort of way.

They’re the type of girls your mom doesn’t want you to hang out with. But, they’re so happy and so positive they are the ‘cool’ people to hang out with at a party. Even the porn-star dudes have this perma-smile on their face.

I wonder why?

Perhaps they’re happy with the money? Maybe they’re getting a lot of action and are on a total orgasm-high? Maybe they’re finally free of all the clutter that weighs down the ‘normal’ 9-to-5 working person with dogs to walk, babies to change and bills to pay?

I have no fucking clue.

There was this scene in the movie Diner, where two of the lead actors are riding in a car and they come along this beautiful lady riding a horse. Her beautiful mansion can be seen in the backdrop.

She smiles at them. They look at her in awe as she bolts towards her mansion. Then they stop the car, get out and Mickey Rourke’s characters says:

“Do you ever get the feeling that there's something going on that we don't know about?”

That’s how I feel about porn stars.
