Dan Benson revealed how the adult industry changed his life

Dan Benson, the Wizards of Waverly Place alum, admits he feels better than ever after giving up his Disney career for porn nearly a year ago.

In a TikTok video on Monday, Benson said,

“Mental health wise I feel good. I don’t feel bad about myself,”

“I feel kind of like a badass a little bit.”

Dan who played Zeke Beakerman in the G-rated show was a part of the Disney Channel series between 2007 and 2017. His co-stars include Selena Gomez and Cole Sprouse.

The now OnlyFans model continued,

“I’m feeling good. I’m excited about the future. I don’t really feel bad about my decisions at all.”

The 35-year-old noted that he felt confused after announcing his decision because instead of receiving hate, he received empowerment from fans and people around him.

He said that many of his fans have even approached him on the street and gave him a hug.

But the former actor had surely learned to set his own boundaries while working in this particular industry as well.

“Now, there are plenty of people on a daily basis asking me and demanding I do things that I don’t feel comfortable doing, but I’ve kind of just been in a position to just be like, ‘No, you’re gonna get what you’re gonna get. You’re gonna get what I’m comfortable with sharing with the world.”

In another TikTok video posted in February, Dan joked that as an Only Dans model, he normally takes photos of himself nude.

Twerking and brushing his teeth, wearing only boxers, Benson joked at the camera at the time,

“Have you ever tried to brush your teeth and make it look sexy? Yeah, it’s not easy,”

How did Dan get into the adult entertainment industry?

Revealing how he accidentally got into adult entertainment, Dan Benson said in January that it happened after he was catfished online.

He revealed that he would get messages from women who were very attractive.

Benson confessed at the time,

“Turns out, messaging those women — who turned out not to be who they said they were — was not the best idea, because I would send nude photos to them, and they would take those nude photos and then post them onto online websites,”

Though he was ashamed and traumatized after finding his nudes all over the internet, he decided to lean into the situation.

He added,

“Instead of letting these people sell my privacy, my — you know what I mean — I decided to say, ‘All right, screw you, I’m gonna sell it myself.’”

“I’ve been having a tremendous amount of fun. I met a lot of great people in the adult entertainment industry, and it’s changed my life for the better.”
