Peruvian adult film star Thaina Fields, aged 24, was discovered lifeless at her home in Trujillo over the weekend, several months after bravely speaking out about the sexual harassment prevalent in the adult film industry.
The news of Fields’ untimely demise was initially reported by La República, with insights from fellow adult content creator Alejandra Sweet, who expressed deep sorrow over her friend’s passing. Sweet, a close companion of Fields, refrained from providing additional details but urged people to offer prayers for the departed star. In an Instagram post, she thanked those who genuinely appreciated Fields and emphasized her belief that Fields is now a “little angel” in a better place.
The production company Milky Perú, associated with Fields, also mourned her death, expressing disbelief and a yearning to see her once more. With a substantial following of 225,000 on TikTok at the time of her demise, Fields had left an impact on many. The company issued a statement stating, “We can’t believe this, we refuse to be without you… Thank you for allowing us to be part of your life.”
Before her tragic death, Fields, whose real first name was Abigail, had publicly disclosed the “very strong” sexual harassment she faced within the adult film industry. In an interview with EmojisTV eight months prior, she revealed the distressing experiences she endured. Fields highlighted the prevalent belief that individuals could exploit her when hired, only to confront the harsh reality upon returning home. Her candid admission shed light on the challenges faced by women in the adult content creation sphere amid societal complexities.
Fields remarked, “It is very difficult to be a woman and create adult content when society is literally in s–t.” Her courageous revelation underscored the pervasive issues within the industry and the societal attitudes that contribute to the challenges faced by women in this field. The circumstances surrounding her death have intensified discussions about the need for change and greater awareness within the adult film industry.
