Farrah Abraham is getting real about her experience after her sex tape was released.
As you may remember, the former Teen Mom star appeared in a video alongside porn star James Deen that she claims was never meant to be released publicly. Interesting. Anyway, after the “leak,” the 26-year-old quickly signed a deal with Vivid Entertainment to distribute the vid.
“I have to emphasize that I didn’t intentionally decide to work in the adult industry. At that time, I was a young experimental 21-year-old woman who happened to be a celebrity that tried to balance life, fame and dating while forging new friendships.”
The mom of one went on to say of the negative attention she received:
“The backlash I received for my sex tape was genuinely hurtful; I felt misunderstood for expressing my sensuality. Although it took me a few years to reconcile those feelings through therapy, along with my faith in God, I was able to overcome being sex-shamed to find my real purpose. I am grateful for this experience because it made me into an empowered woman who proudly wants to help end the stigma around sex.”
When asked for her definition of sex positivity, Miz Abraham shared:
“For me, it means embracing your sexuality and personal freedom. It’s important to promote safe and consensual sex and use my celebrity status to spread this vital message. I want to be able to spread this message to my daughter.”
Now, since she’s been cut from the MTV franchise, Farrah said she has some other aspirations she’s focusing on:
“At 26 years old, I feel like I’ve accomplished so much already and I hope to continue to develop new products, from my furniture, toys, and clothing line to providing entrepreneurs with educational resources. The sky’s the limit. I would also love to open a new frozen yogurt location!”
Sure… Why not?!
