"Octomom" Nadya Suleman shot her first pornographic video last week. The video is set to be released in mid June and she hopes to use the paycheck to buy a new home for her family of 14.
According to the The Huffington Post, she said she was a little nervous when she arrived on the set for her first ever adult-film shoot. But she was soon put at ease by professionals, and according to reports, she performed like a seasoned pro.
“My first shoot was amazing," she told The Huffington Post. "Such a learning experience for me in so many ways. I don’t think I could have asked for a better crew to work with. They were so patient and willing to teach me. I owe a lot to Wicked Pictures contract star Jessica Drake; she opened my eyes to a whole different world of self-pleasure that I could have never imagined. They made me look so glamorous, and for the first time in my life, I felt beautiful and sexy. I’m very excited for it to come out!”
Suleman's upcoming film is said to be a solo video in which she pleasures herself in front of cameras. Her move to star in an adult film goes against a previous vow to never do a porn flick. In this case, however, Suleman doesn't think she's breaking the vow because she will be starring in the film alone.
As Digital Journal previously reported , her decision to shoot a porn comes on the heels of her filing for bankruptcy with as much as $1 million in debt.
Two years ago Suleman declined an offer by an adult film company to pay off her mortgage if she would sign a contract for a pornographic movie, but as her financial situation worsened she began hinting she was willing to do anything to support her children. She said: "If it's a job, and it's a well-paying job, and it's going to allow me to get us out of here and into a very safe huge home that they deserve, then I'm going to do it."
Catholic Vote explains why Suleman, whom critics say had hoped her "Octomon" celebrity status would earn her easy income, is doing pornography: "A lot of our media culture’s usual money sources were closed to her: Her welfare status made her too unsavory for a reality TV show, as Mary Elizabeth Williams points out. She was considered too weird to be the next 'John and Kate Plus Eight.' A Duggars-style '14 and Counting' was out of the question." She was forced to turn to the only industry that would take her, the pornography industry, America's biggest entertainment industry.
Octomom's porno is expected to be released in mid-June by a major online porn distributor. According to The Inquistr, it is directed by adult film star Brad Armstrong. The Huffiington Post reports that after her first shoot, she took a series of photographs in which she posed topless across a table covered by SpaghettiOs.
Hollywood Gossip reports Suleman had vowed she would never kiss anyone or allow anyone touch her in a porno video. Digital Journal reports she said: "I wouldn't even kiss somebody for money. I would not even kiss somebody. I wouldn't touch somebody."
Hollywood Gossip notes that the mother of 14 did not have to "kiss somebody," or "touch somebody" when she got pregnant. She was impregnated via IVF, and what looks like a strong aversion to physical sexual contact has caused some speculations about her sexuality.
The Huffiington Post reports that an insider said: “For the pictures, we had her topless with a thick sparkly red choker with a big red heart in front and red and white polka dot panties … like 1950s style. SpaghettiOs were all over her body and she’s even throwing the SpaghettiOs toward the camera. The label on the can was changed from SpaghettiOs to say ‘Saucy Octos.’”
According to E! Online, her four-bedroom, three-bath home in La Habra, California, will be auctioned on Monday.
Octomom's critics are unsparing with harsh words. Red Eye Chicago comments: " A woman who got famous because she insisted on giving birth to eight children and then subsequently went bankrupt, only to decide to settle her debts by appearing in pornography will pretty much summarize the early 21st Century for historians. Our grandchildren will take seminars on this video."
