The 26-year-old brunette admitted to still being traumatized by the incident on Wednesday’s episode of “The Skinny Confidential Him & Her” podcast, saying, “I simply I don’t think that it’s good for anyone. They ought to outlaw it.

Rhoades, who recently disclosed she had a child with an unidentified NBA player, claims she was clueless about what she was getting into when she starred in her first X-rated film at the age of 19.

“For some reason I never comprehended that to do porn you actually have to have sex with people,” she said, claiming she had only been intimate with one person before making her industry debut.
