What do you make of this?

I really can't figure out this clip...

Around a minute a half in, Jenna Jameson tells audience at the Adult Video Awards (held in Vegas, Sat. January 12), "Honesty is key...I will never ever ever spread my legs again in this industry. Ever!"

This 'honest revelation' was met by boos from the audience.

What's this about? Why boo her for this statement? Is this the audience's way of showing their sadness at her leaving? Or is it some sort of sick misogynistic outburst along the lines of, "We'll tell you when you shut your legs, bitch?"

Am I reading too much into this or is this disturbing?

Well, it's entirely possibly I am misconstruing the crowd's boos, but I know for a fact what IS gross, the winner of the award Jameson presented, was Stormy Daniels, who said, "Well I plan on spreading my legs for this industry for quite some time."

i can't remember if it was her, but i know there was a documentary talking about how harsh the porn industry is on the female body, and i am really surprised that she has stuck it out this long...i have totally mixed feelings about porn, and think certain types are better than others, but i definitely think it is a bunch of jerk-offs who think they should tell her when to quit and believe it is not her own free choice...just IMHO.

I agree, Brandann...

The statistics about women in porn who had a past of sexual abuse are astounding. (I know Jameson said she was raped) And also just the notion of porn, you can't tell me that's a job where you have a lot of security saying no to anything.

I don't think the crowd was so much booing her in the manner you're thinking Tobes. She's one of the most recognizable names in the world and I think this time the boos are simply meant as 'We wish you wouldn't retire.' Personally I don't think porn is that big of a deal as long as it involves consenting adults who are involved because they want to be. I don't imagine the job gives many the option to say no to some things like you said, but Jenna is one of those who probably can. She's been doing this for a long time, and she's got more control over her own 'career' than pretty much anyone in the industry. I don't know.
