It might come as no surprise that dating while being a porn star isn’t easy, especially if you’re looking to find someone outside of your industry. And over at New York Magazine today, Joanna Angel, founder of BurningAngel.com and self-proclaimed “punk porno princess,” doesn’t just tell, she shows writer Rachel R. White exactly what she’s up against.

Angel took White to a speed-dating event that she participated in, hoping to meet someone after coming out of a six-year relationship. At the event, Angel reportedly opened each date with the following spiel:

“Okay, so I am a porn star. No, really I am. Oh, you are too? Well, you’re lying. Because the industry is small and I’d recognize you! So, actually, I guess I’m here because it has been hard for me to find a guy who is okay with what I do. What I am asking is, would you be okay with dating a porn star?”

Unsurprisingly, most dudes just stare at her and wait for the two minutes to be over. And in our humble opinion, it’s their loss.
