Yasmeena Ali, dubbed as Afghanistan’s top porn star, has opened up about her life and the struggles she faced after leaving behind her religion and family to pursue a career in the sex industry. The 28-year-old spoke to The New York Post and despite her father and cousin’s alleged effort to murder her, she said she feels empowered by her profession that not only gives her bodily freedom but also the financial one.

She told The Post, “I was surprised when I first started working in this industry with how well women are paid compared to their male co-stars. A lot of times women in other industries with higher qualifications and experiences do not get the same paycheck or respect as their male colleagues.”

Is Yasmeena Ali married?

Ali was a kid when her family migrated to the UK in the early 2000s. The Toronto Sun reported that her father Mohammed Patman was “granted asylum in the UK for providing British and US troops with translation services during fighting in the Middle East.” But despite being in England, the '93-born did not get the choice of living a free life.

It has been said that as a teenager, she left her home and married a Jewish photographer, David Cohen, before renouncing her religion and beginning her career as a pron star. She made headlines in 2020 when it was reported that Patman and her cousin Darya Khan Safi had allegedly hired a hitman to kill her as she “disgraced the family” by her actions.

Speaking with The Post, Ali said, “I don’t have any contact with my family and they haven’t told me face-to-face how they feel about my career. My parents always instilled fear in me — God, hell, punishments. If I left Islam my father threatened to kill me for tarnishing Islam, the Afghan culture and the family’s honor. At the end of the day, it is my life and I don’t care about people’s reactions to my career. I follow my heart and do whatever I want because it is my life, my body and right.”

This comes after Ali, who now reportedly uses the name of Khadija Cohen, had an interview with Tommie McDonald on his ‘I Hate Porn’ podcast. She slammed the Taliban during the interview and called out its 'hypocritical members' for being 'secret porn lovers'. She added: “I wouldn’t be surprised [if they watch porn]. Sexually repressed societies are kind of obsessed. When you look at where most of the viewers come from...most of them are from Middle Eastern countries and India, for example.”

Also about the people of Afghanistan, Ali said, “They don’t want Afghanistan to be known for porn. They think they own my body and what I can do with my body and I have no right to show it,” before stating: “I've always been a rebellious person. My instinct tells me to be against anything that tries to oppress me.”
