She had to flee her home when secret porn star career was exposed

ONE of the UK’s top porn stars has told how she’s having the last laugh after being sacked and sent packing from Scotland when her X-rated career was exposed.

Skyler McKay now lives a life of luxury as one of the country’s most successful adult entertainers after two different stints in the adult industry.

But the 32-year-old, who has degrees in business and beauty, admits it was a different story when locals in her hometown of Livingston learned about her controversial career choice.

Skyler says: “I’d been found out in Scotland. I was contracted to do porn for a year with a big really company.

“It came out and it was a big shocker to the community so I felt I had to do what was expected of me and go to university.

“At the time I was leading a double life. I worked for Scottish Youth Theatre where I was a workshop leader also studying drama at Queen Margaret University.

“When they found out I was doing porn I got sacked and the whole industry turned its back on me,  I was seen as someone who can’t be trusted and all the other clichés that go along with the industry which were completely untrue.

“I worked at the Sheraton Hotel for a year on reception and also in Harvey Nichols.

“But I was sacked from all three and had everything taken away in the space of 24 hours.

“I still don’t know who it was that told them but I’d like to say thank you because if I wasn’t sacked I wouldn’t have pursued university, been a student and moved to London to be where I am now.”

And Skyler, who returned to porn four years ago after a break to work in the beauty industry, reckons she’s had the last laugh now that she’s accepted in Edinburgh again.

She adds: “My work has been really popular. I’ve always had a big fan base.

“Before it I was having to rent crappy rooms in London, I couldn’t afford to go on holiday, I was borrowing money from mum and dad for my Oyster card so I could get to work.

“It sucked. I worked my ass of at university to be sat there as a skilled, intelligent woman.

“It’s given me a lifestyle I couldn’t even dream of. The first time I was so young I didn’t save any of that money and this time I have a more sensible head on my shoulders. 

“Don’t get me wrong, I love treating myself, and I do splash the cash regularly and have a high maintenance lifestyle.

“But I have the  security of a roof over my head, food on my plate and savings in the bank.”

Skyler jokes: “I’m very fortunate in that people know me and so I’m not defined by the job I do. 

“I was very successful in the beauty industry so with myself there’s not the stigma attached.

“There’s nothing for them to say now. I was top of my class at university.

“I love walking back into Harvey Nichols and giving the big old finger.”

Skyler, who also recently featured on a Channel 5 documentary about the adult entertainment industry, admits the only downside for some women can be the struggles while looking for love.

But the X-rated star, who is single for the first time in years, reckons actors can lead a double life as long as their partners can accept it.

She says: “My job has never affected my love life because I’ve always been very open and honest about what I do.

“Boyfriends are always assured I’m loyal to them and we set our boundaries.

“I do not want to ever date anybody in our industry.

“It’s always been someone I’ve been introduced to by my friends or in my social circle and that helps because they know you already.

“But if you meet somebody in a bar and say what you do, they’d say it’s amazing and what happens with a lot of girls is that a couple of months down the line they say they don’t want you to do that anymore.”
