Shot A Porn Movie And Regret It - What Now?
It sounded like an awesome idea at the time. Your image captured on film doing something bawdy, risqué, over-the-top and downright naughty would immortalize you as a “star” forever. Now that a little time has passed, regrets have settled in and you wish you’d never agreed. While you can’t undo what has been done, you can deal with the problem at hand. You are not the first person who has shot a porno movie and then fantasized that a “do over” button existed in the real world.

So, how what can you do about the issue? A lot depends on whether the porno was an actual moneymaking production or if it was something you and a former sweetie did in the privacy of your own home.

If your situation falls into the latter category, you might be able to retrieve the tape and destroy it. If you do manage to regain custody of the film, make sure to rid yourself of it and all copies immediately. Should the tape not be something you agreed to or was aware of as it was being filmed, you might be able to take legal action to have it destroyed.

Now, if you were paid to act in a film, your legal footing will likely be nil to prevent release or rerelease. If you signed a contract or otherwise agreed to the action, there simply may not be anything you can do to prevent the images from getting out.

In both cases, there are ways to cope with the reality of the past, even if it keeps coming back to haunt you. Try to remember that:

Everyone has regrets
– You are a human being. This means you are not perfect. Everyone has something they have done in the past they wish they could take back. You are no different.

You are a different person now – If you shot the film during your “wild” younger days and have since grown into a different person, hold on to that closely. Remind yourself that you’ve grown into someone more mature and that every experience in your life, including the porno, helped shape you into the person you are today.

You can forgive yourself – If you’re ashamed of the action, try to come to terms with it. To move on, you have to forgive yourself and let go of the regrets as much as you can.

Shooting a porno movie in the past is not the end of the world. Learn from the experience. Remedy the situation if you can. Otherwise, try to accept that what is done is done and hold your head high.
