Perhaps this is one of those things that everyone knows but us.
Apparently the Australian born porn actress called Monica Mayhem was a futures trader in Sydney, and then did forex and commodities in London.
Part way through the article, the Brisbane Times drops this on us:
A former futures trader in London, turned stripper, Ms Mayhem has been relatively quick to diversify across platforms, with her own book, Absolute Mayhem: Confessions of an Aussie Porn Star, and website. But even embracing the online trend comes with inherent risks.
So we did a bit of googling (don’t try this at work, kids), and found an interview from a couple of years ago where she describes her journey from trading to porn:
I used to work in financial markets/futures trading in Sydney, Australia. I then traveled to Europe and moved to London and worked in an IPE brokerage (International Petroleum Exchange). I got sick of that world, I started dancing at the newly opened Spearmint Rhino on Tottenham Court Road. I also did a couple of softcore photo/video shoots. One night, at the club, I met one of the owners of the Rhino, and I was drunk and dared him to fly me back to the states with him that same night. Four hours later we were headed to Texas. A couple of days after that I went to LA. A few days later I met an agent, who talked me into doing hardcore scenes, and the rest is history!
Here’s a link to the entire interview. But be careful. It’s definitely not safe for work!
