Alison Rey, the multi-nominated adult performer and model with the wholesome girl next door girl looks, discusses career longevity and social media bias against sex workers in her ‘Entertainer Spotlight’ profile in the April 2023 issue of NightMoves Magazine, now available online at NightMovesOnline.com and on newsstands throughout central Florida.
“I was honored to be chosen for NightMoves’ Entertainer Spotlight and I am always happy to find a welcoming platform to discuss social media marketing and the challenges sex workers face in the digital age,” stated Rey.
In Rey’s feature profile for the nightlife monthly, industry scribe and critic Moutasem Seyam a.k.a. Mutant Mo writes, “Alison Rey has been in the adult industry since 2014 so she was the perfect person to ask about the definition of an ‘industry veteran.’ At only twenty-seven years old she’s accomplished so much with no plans at stopping anytime soon. This is echoed by a decorated catalog of work.”
Rey tells the writer, “A veteran is quite literally defined as ‘a person who has had long experience in a particular field.’ So, since I’ve been in mainstream porn for nearly a decade, I would definitely consider myself a veteran, especially when you consider that most 18-year-olds that enter the adult film industry quit after a year or two. Quite frankly, 9 years in any industry is impressive for any 27-year-old, and I think I’ve earned the title!”
The writer also notes that the treatment of performers such as Rey on “social media networks are another staunch reminder that sex work is still stigmatized on multiple levels.” Rey notes, “I’ve had several TikTok accounts deleted. The first that was permanently banned was @alisonreyx and it had over 440k followers.
“When they deleted my account, I was devastated. If I were posting titillating content or truly violating their community guidelines, I would have accepted the ban, as it would have been my fault for taking the risk of posting less-than-wholesome content. However, since they banned me, seemingly because of my name alone, it took quite a toll on my mental health. It felt like I was being pushed out of society, cut off from the friends and social network I had built on that platform.”
