So, someone using the name “Tara” wants their daughter to be a porn star. Yes, you heard me right. They have an 18 year old daughter and a contact in the industry that’s promising this parental unit stardom and 400k a year contracts for their beautiful baby girl. Yes – seriously I couldn’t make up this kind of thing I’m not, quite, that debauched yet.
First, I hope this is a joke. Otherwise it’s the stuff of Jerry Springer’s nightmares, or wet dreams – take your pick. Second, there’s very little that’s more awesome than a parent that loves and supports you as you fumble around trying to discover who you are and how to make a place for yourself in the world, even if your path happens to have a porny detour. On the other hand, there’s little worse than a parent who expects you to fail right off the bat at everything except porn. And third, who in their right mind wouldn’t be creeped out by both their friend offering this to them (shouldn’t this ‘friend’ be talking to the daughter instead?) and then thinking it is ok to suggest to their daughter!?!
Major ew’s all around on this one – makes me feel dirty right down to my hair follicles. Go Monday, it’s only going to get better from here, because it certainly can’t go downhill.
