An adult film actor who recently became a mother is now a crusading for more stringent age-verification policies on pornographic websites. Candice Horbacz, better known by her nom de guerre Eva Lovia, said the birth of her son had made her focus on what her industry could do to prevent children from seeing adult content.

On June 9, while appearing as a guest on the ‘Holly Randall Unfiltered’ podcast, she said that she took seriously her role to protect her child from witnessing the “convincing” and “violent” porn that is freely available today. “I think it’s made me reflect a lot more on it, just to really understand the different facets and the potential impacts and the potential consequences it could have on individuals,” she said.

“I’ve always been pretty anti-free-porn,” she said during the podcast. “I’ve always thought a paywall just seems like the most ethical way to approach porn, especially with the content that’s out there now.” She added, “I’ve talked to a lot of clinical psychologists and evolutionary biologists -- I’ve had the pleasure of talking to a lot of experts on my show -- and they express the potential risks of consuming content too young without context.”

"So I think establishing a paywall is a first step," she explained. "At least we know that the person is old enough to have a credit card."

But pornographic websites were not the only ones responsible for making sure children could not access the adult content. “So obviously, yeah, that is a parent’s responsibility to get there before their friend puts them on a tube site and is, like, ‘Let’s browse this’,” she said. “It’s your job as a parent to prepare them for the world.”

She also said she was worried about the apparent ease of finding "pretty violent material without context", as it is "really convincing" and does not clearly show there is consent. She added: “Obviously, there’s workarounds and nothing is 100 percent foolproof but to me that’s one thing I got more passionate about after becoming a mum because I don’t want some douchey kid when he’s ten years old on his smartphone showing my kid all this stuff. Unfortunately, that’s not preventable so we just have to prepare him for that situation.”



 

Who is Candice Horbacz or Eva Lovia?

The 32-year-old pornographic actor and podcaster reportedly started out in the industry when she was roughly 22-year-old. In a 2017 interview, the adult actor of Japanese and Spanish descent said that she was a late bloomer in the industry. But she also believed that performers in her industry should not be allowed to enter right after turning 18. 

“I am a firm believer it should be 21 and up,” Horbacz said. “At 18, making these life-changing decisions is kind of ridiculous, particularly since there’s no onboarding process.” She said that she would often see young performers unable to manage their finances: “I can’t tell you how many times a girl will shoot for six months, twelve months and then tax season comes around: ‘Hey, you owe us 20, 30 grand.’ She says, ‘I don’t even have that in my bank account.’”

Horbacz has also spoken about exploitation in the industry. “A lot of girls are doing scenes for about 600 bucks,” she said, adding that that still would not be the final amount the performer would get in hand. She has also spoken out against the lack of safe sex in heterosexual porn - lack of condoms.

“The companies say it will hurt their sales,” she said. “If you were to show up to set and say, ‘I’m only doing it with condoms today,’ they’d send you home.” She said that while they regularly check for STIs, she found this “super risky, particularly with how much sex we’re all having.”
