Porn Veteran Embarks Upon A Race Car Career

Thompson August 8, 2017 August 8th, 2017

If we only pay attention to the cautionary tales, it makes sense to assume adult film actors all fall to pieces after their careers in the XXX video biz expire. Of course, that isn’t always the case. Sasha Grey, for instance, made a staggering amount of money during her five-ish years in porn, then retired in her mid-20s. Now she writes novels, and it sort of doesn’t matter how many people buy them, because Sasha Grey is already a fuckin’ millionaire.

We don’t know if Mick Blue is a millionaire, but not entirely unlike Grey, he’s using a background in porno to help launch another dream. The Daily Beast reports that the Austrian multi-time AVN award winner plans to try his hand at professional racecar driving when he’s finally all done screwing on camera.

Being a male porn star isn’t as much fun as it looks, as the TDB deftly notes. It requires substantial cardiovascular endurance, and cyborg-like discipline over one’s own, uh, um, let’s say “excitement.” Competitive racecar driving doesn’t mandate the same immunity to premature ejaculation, but apart from that, the athletic necessities are hardly dissimilar.

“When you are a porn actor you perform on the outer limits of your physical abilities, so your mind is used to that,” Blue tells TDB. “When you sit in a racecar you go to your physical and mental limits. Driving a racecar for hours is physically demanding,”

The 40-year-old husband of fellow porn actor Anikka Albrite remains active in the adult industry, but says he’s aiming to become a full-fledged Indycar driver by 2020.

Blue’s story makes me wonder what I should do with my life after this whole internet writer thing inevitably runs its course. Everyone assumes internet writers and porn stars have nothing in common, but that’s not entirely true. If you work in either field, people who are way lazier than you keep telling you to get a “real” job.  The money isn’t as good as you think it’s going to be when you start out. And you’ve got to buy your own health insurance.

The biggest difference is states don’t regulate internet writers to make sure we’re not spreading STDs…so, y’know, that’s an FYI for anyone who’s slept with an internet writer and didn’t get themselves tested afterwards.
