It’s not the worst idea to retire at the top: you retain legendary status since you haven’t fallen into mediocrity, you can return to your chosen industry as prominent as you left it, and you’ll always feel like your former colleagues would welcome you back. In porn, though, things often work a bit differently – thank the aging process for that. If recently announced retiree Brooklyn Lee ever decides to return to porn, she’ll do so as an XBIZ Female Performer of the Year and one of porn’s most compelling young performers.
When the 23-year-old Ohioan burst onto the scene in 2010’s Whores on the 14th under the watchful eye of director Belladonna, she wasted no time winning over a huge contingent of porno fanatics with her impressive oral and anal skills. Now, however, she shuffles off to begin another, more private phase of her life. As she focuses on her education and a relationship she says contributed to her decision to leave adult – “When you reach a point where you loathe heading to set because there’s only one person in the world you have any desire to have sex with, it’s time to move on from sex work…” – Lee hopes fans will look forward to her last performances in the forthcoming Vivid remake of classic Behind the Green Door and the follow up to John Stagliano’s acclaimed Voracious, due to start shooting later this month.
