The dark side of pornography includes rape, battering an ex with a toilet lid, and death by inhaling toad venom.

Hollywood is associated with glitz and glamour, but the same Californian suburb is also associated with the seedier side of filmmaking – porn.

And, while the adult film industry’s VHS heyday of the late 1980s and 1990s is long gone, it still thrives in the age of the digital download, producing thousands of films each year and making just as much money as its more well-known neighbor.

While some may not be familiar with the films of Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio, almost everyone on the planet has probably seen at least one skin film at some point in their lives.

Furthermore, the pornographic industry is constantly referenced on the big screen, with films like Boogie Nights winning a slew of Oscars, the industry’s highest honor.

And, just as that film was inspired by the tragic story of well-endowed 1970s star John Holmes’ descent into crime, many other porn actors have found themselves in legal trouble in the interim.

Here аre some of the more extreme exаmples.
