After Porn Ends is a documentary that not only examines the lives and careers of some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry but what happens to them after they leave the business and try and live the "normal" lives that millions of other Americans enjoy. They hailed from the rural South, steel towns, and the San Fernando Valley. As teenagers and young adults, none of them thought that porn was in their future. They were artists, baseball players, child prodigies, and even Ivy Leaguers. Now, after their lives in porn, they're TV stars, bounty hunters, writers, and social activists. What happened in between? And, now that they've moved on, can they really live a normal life after porn? Written by
Tiffany Million was known as Tiffany Mellon when she wrestled for GLOW--the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling--in the mid-'80s. She always wore a sexy shiny gold costume and her gimmick was that of a wealthy New Yorker. She always seemed to lose her matches, often in devastating fashion and pinned after she was on the receiving end of a pile driver or some other big finishing move. See more »

Despite the provocative poster and provocative title, there's very little provocative material in here.
For what you were actually expecting, I'd recommend Louis Theroux's documentaries on the subject. After Porn Ends seems content with the fact that porn stars have to exist after the cameras stop rolling, and after they retire; and as such, it meanders. There's no great sense of purpose or depth to any of the questions. Its more than a bit depressing, but not in a fascinating way like in Theroux's works.
Having said all that, some of the stars are quite likable in small doses so I got some enjoyment out of that. Just not very much.
