Five young female porn stars dead in three months trigger spate of deaths

Porn death

Olivia Lua, Olivia Nova, August Ames, Turi Luv, and Shyla Stylez., the five women belonging to the adult film industry, died in less than 3 months.

Derek Hay of L.A. Direct Models, which worked with both Lua and Nova, said it was a “coincidence” sudden deaths in such a short time.

He claimed these deaths could have been prevented by safeguards in place to reduce depression or drug abuse. Stress which porn stars get at the job they do and attacks from online trolls. Stress can be another reason causing these deaths.

One common thing amongst these five deaths other than profession is age.

Olivia Lua was 23-years and died in Rehab, California facility.

Nova 20-year-old was found dead on Jan. 7 in Las Vegas.

Ames, 23, hung herself in December 2017, after she was bullied and mocked by the mockers online and called homophobic for refusal to on-camera sex with men who had done gay porn.

August Ames’ husband, Kevin Moore, told online mockers have “her blood on your hands” and that August had screenshotted every single abusive message she has received for him to know the pain and shame she had faced

Turi Luv, died due to a drug overdose, in December 2017. Luv was 31-year-old.

Recently retired from the porn film industry, Shyla Stylez, 35-year-old, died in November 2017 in her sleep. She worked in the industry for over 10 years.

These sudden deaths in months happened across the US and Canada. Primary cause suspected are suicide, accidental overdose, and UTIs.

Olivia Lua’s family and close friends had a deep concern at the heavy dosage of prescription drugs Olivia was taking and the danger this caused to her. it is believed, mixing of prescription drugs along with recreational drugs or alcohol, are the primary cause of her passing.

It is not clear if any of the five adult film actors who have died in short gap knew one another.

So far, there has been no proof of a link between any of their deaths other than the fact that they were all young and porn stars.

Adult actress Raven Hart told one magazine: “If you get into this business really young, and you are already predisposed to your own personal issues of depression or whatever else, working in porn may intensify your issues, this is not a career for everyone. When you are younger you get taken advantage of more and if you don’t stand up for yourself or you don’t make it known that you are a professional, then these types of things can happen.”

The reasons for death at such a young age are unexplored but Societal jibe and norm has exacerbated the deaths
