          Lisa Ling Investigates: The Secret World of Amateur Adult Video

          October 14, 2011

          As many as 40 million Americans are regular visitors to adult websites, helping to make Internet adult entertainment a multi-billion dollar business. Now, amateur adult video is emerging as a viable money-making venture for both singles and couples from the comfort of their own homes, and in the premiere of the cable series, Our America with Lisa Ling, journalist Lisa Ling goes inside this secret world. She joins Dr. Phil to disclose her findings. Then, Dr. Phil speaks to a couple starring in amateur adult videos to make ends meet, a daughter who says her father’s pornography career severed their relationship — and a woman who says that her husband’s obsession over Internet adult entertainment is driving their marriage to the brink of collapse.

          Warning: this episode contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion is advised.

          Behind Closed Doors

Meet Tyler, 24, and Berkley, 21, a young married couple with a 2-year-old daughter, who say they’re proud of their XXX-rated career choice.
