A study that compared 177 adult entertainment actresses aged from 18 to 50 with women of the same age, ethnicity, marital status but  not part of the porn industry, found that most of our opinion about porn stars, thought of as 'damaged goods',is highly untrue.

Most of the porn stars are assumed to be people who suffer from low self esteem or are victims of childhood sexual abuse. 

A study published this week has criticized the stereotypical portrayal of porn actresses as 'damaged goods'.

The study found that porn stars are just as much likely as other women to experience common problems.

On the contrary, the study found that those in the sex entertainment industry carried a positive outlook in life with  self-confidence and a better body image. 

'In terms of psychological characteristics, porn actresses had higher levels of self-esteem, positive feelings, social support, sexual satisfaction and spirituality compared to the matched group,' the report stated.

It is wrong to think that they have entered the business because of extreme poverty or homelessness or have been victims of child sexual abuse. 

Their levels of spirituality were also much higher and they seemed to have a better quality of life, the report revealed.
