'After Porn Ends' Finds First Time Documentary Director Bryce Wagoner on a Bold, Fascinating Journey to Discover the Incredible and Often Unexpected Answers

The Feature Length Film, Produced by Oxymoron Entertainment and Set for On Demand Release by Gravitas Ventures May 21 and DVD Release August 21, Includes Riveting Interviews With 13 Former (and Some Legendary) Adult Stars, "Industry Godfather" Bill Margold and a Porn Expert UCLA Professor

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2012) - Can porn actors really live a normal life after porn?

Filmmaker Bryce Wagoner attempts to answer this question in his fascinating first feature length documentary "After Porn Ends" (www.afterpornends.com), a fast moving and heartfelt documentary that examines the life and careers of some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry -- and the ups and downs of what happens to them after they leave the business and attempt to resume "normal" lives.

The film includes interviews with 13 former adult stars, many legendary in their realm. These include onetime California gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey, Houston, Crissy Moran, Raylene, Asia Carrera, Seka, Randy West, Amber Lynn, Bill Margold (considered by many to be the "Industry Godfather"), Tyffany Million, John Leslie (a veteran of 542 titles who passed away recently), Nina Hartley ("Boogie Nights"), Shelley Lubben (who became an anti-pornography advocate after a lengthy career in the business), Richard Pacheco and Luke Ford (author of "The History of X: 100 Years of Sex in Film").

"After Porn Ends" also includes the insights of Dr. Neil Malamuth, a Professor of Psychology, Communication and Women's Studies at UCLA who wrote a book and teaches a class on the harmful effects of pornography on individuals and how society deals with them.

Produced by Christopher Mallick -- founder of the groundbreaking film company Oxymoron Entertainment -- along with Andy Weiss and Susan Dynner, the film is set for On Demand Release May 21 by Gravitas Ventures, LLC, whose reach will potentially put it in 100 million households. It is available now for pre-purchase on iTunes and will be released on DVD August 21.

A special press screening will take place at the Paramount Studios in Los Angeles on Tuesday, May 15 at 7 p.m. featuring a post-film Q&A session with Mary Carey, Crissy Moran, Christopher Mallick, Bryce Wagoner and Andy Weiss. Media can RSVP to Steve Levesque at info@luckmedia.com or (818) 232-4175.
