A former porn star who swapped her life in a Bristol council house for the Playboy Mansion in her twenties has heaped praise on Channel 4’s Adult Material for opening up the conversation about sex work.  

Single mother Lianne Young, 42, earned £10,000 a week as an adult actress after she began making porn films in 1999, aged 24.

She told how the lifestyle saw her enjoy lavish parties at the infamous Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. 

Now working as a sexual violence adviser for the Metropolitan Police’s Sexual Violence Unit, Lianne said she hopes the four-part drama detailing a mother working in the porn industry will help win more protection for adult film actors.

Speaking to The Sunday Mirror, she added: ‘As a single mum who went into the industry to make money, parts of Adult Material felt like watching my own life.’

While she admitted her former career was ‘sometimes degrading’, Lianne insisted she ‘didn’t feel used’.

She said she hopes the Channel 4 show can break down the taboos about the adult film industry. 

Lianne’s big break came after appearing in US online series Sex Survivor in 2001.

‘It was like X-rated Big Brother and gave me a luxury life, parties’, she recalled.      

Lianne, who retired ‘exhausted’ from porn at the age of 27, highlighted the fact more people are trying make money through adult work, after losing their jobs as a result of Covid-19. 

Sign-ups to websites like OnlyFans have skyrocketed over the last six months, with the company recording a massive 61million users and 850,000 content creators during lockdown.

Now Lianne works as sexual violence adviser for the Metropolitan Police, and has heaped on praise for Channel 4's latest series Adult Material

‘Many are turning to a porn career after losing jobs in lockdown,’ Lianne said. ‘Porn isn’t going anywhere. But we can make it safer’.  

Adult material premiered on Channel 4 earlier this month, and follows mother-of-three and porn star Jolene Dollar, played by Call the Midwife’s Hayley Squires, as she navigates the industry having been a leading performer for decades. 

The first episode of the show was criticised after one shocking scene showed Jolene’s daughter Pheobe, played by Alex Jarrett, being raped while sleeping by her boyfriend. 

But after trying to confide in her mother she was told she should be ‘clearer with her dos and don’ts’.

However the second episode received praise after Jolene’s empowering speech about being a sex worker and financially stable single mum. 

During the episode, Jolene found herself enraged when her daughter Phoebe’s headmistress told her she thought her career in the porn industry was having a negative impact on her young girl.
