    I don’t think pornstars are what we would call idols/celebrities because they’re underground stars and no one really knows them :/

    These pornstars have a bigger audience than most of these so called celebrity. Who knows or really cares for Franciois Chau. Mention the Thai sisters to a dude and he will know who she is.
