Courtney Stodden Says No to $5 Million Porn Deal
LOS ANGELES — Move over Farrah Abraham: teenage bride and TV personality Courtney Stodden was approached with a porn deal that the company said could have earned the 18-year-old a whopping $5 million.
Stodden passed, saying "It is not the direction I am interested in taking in my life."
Adult site Panoporn offered Stodden up to $200,000 up-front for two solo scenes, a sum they predicted could grow to anywhere from $3.5 to $5 million dollars as it gained hype.
The porn company was going to splice the two scenes together for their signature 360 degree or “panoramic” porn experience that allows viewers to pan around a virtual room and change the camera focus.
“Out of respect for her husband” 53-year-old Doug Hutchison, they refrained from requesting boy/girl scenes, her mother and manger Krista Keller said.
When E! questioned Stodden about Farrah Abraham’s recent sex tape success story she said, "Success means different things to different people. Everybody has the right to live their lives the way they want to live them.” She also admitted that it was difficult to turn down the offer.
While Stodden has nixed notions of a porn career, she is pursuing another NSFW avenue with the upcoming release of her and Hutchison’s “sex ed” video.
The footage, to be posted on PassionAndPleasure.com, is meant to instruct couples on how to reclaim sexual vitality in their relationships.
