Porn Parents

One day a little over a month ago, I made French toast for breakfast for the household. Later, we took the girls in their stroller down the hill to the farmer’s market to buy fruit, vegetables, and lunch. We came home, ate our lunch, and then mom fed the girls. After she put them down for their nap, we left the girls in the capable hands of my partner’s husband and a few friends to go perform in a queer orgy porn shoot. After a few hours at the shoot, we came home. I hugged and kissed my now awake girls, and then we all sat around in the living room and watched the World Series.

Very “Leave It to Beaver, huh? Well, except for that porn thing, and the extra husband.

You see, here’s the thing. By just admitting that I occasionally do porn shoots, I’ve cast doubt on my fitness as a parent to a whole lot of people. It’s the stigma of doing porn. If I’m doing porn, then I must be [(a) ignoring, (b) exposing to inappropriate content, (c) molesting, (d) all of the above] my children at home.  People don’t believe that a lot of folks have the ability to separate their sex life from their parental duties (aside from the fact that it was having a sex life that got me into my parental duties to begin with). Although I’m sure most of you who read this here on the GV Magazine don’t believe the hype, right?

Look folks, I don’t expect this country to look upon porn as an occupation like any other within my lifetime, but I would like folks to back off on us parents who choose to work in the biz.  I have to give props to Belladonna about going public with her pregnancy. She’s still working in the industry as a parent. “Good on ya to Madison Young as well for going public about her pregnancy. It’s a risk we’re taking, and it’s a risk worth taking. We’re not demons, and I’ll be damned (see what I did there) if I’m gonna let somebody demonize me for it. People do porn for a variety of reasons, just like people do art, sing, or dive a bus for a variety of reasons. At the end of the shoot my partner and I did, I showed my girls’ picture to another performer who has a child of her own. It was nice to bond over that. I long for a day when we can do it without the stigma.
