I'm sick of hearing about Teen Mom Farrah Abraham's sex tape. You're sick of hearing about Farrah Abraham's sex tape. We're all sick of hearing about Farrah Abraham's sex tape and we can't escape Farrah Abraham's sex tape because everywhere you go on the Internet, there it is, all pressed up against your FACE: Farrah Abraham's goddamned sex tape.
There's an exceedingly short path between overexposure and irritation, and I suspect that's one of the reasons many of us hope that Farrah Abraham follows her adult video launch by a literal launch of some kind, ideally to outer space where we can't hear her dying horse screams. Her porn partner James Deen, however, has stepped up to defend Abraham's choice to make the tape -- and I have to say, he sounds pretty reasonable.
Honestly, I'm a little surprised that Deen is saying anything nice about Abraham, considering she hasn't exactly treated him with the utmost respect since he, uh, "co-starred in her film." (This is me making exaggerated air quotes before switching to a lewd-finger-thrusting-into-a-closed-fist-gesture.) In fact, she's publicly ridiculed his penis size, called him a "prop in the background," and ripped him for being "unprofessional."
Still, he recently spoke out on Abraham's behalf, and here's what he had to say:
I get kind of bummed about society and the fact that just because a chick decides she wants to do a porno, that she needs to be called mean names and stuff and I kind of feel like people should be nicer to her. If she wants to express her sexuality, whatever her motivations for making the adult film may be, I kind of feel like she shouldn’t be ostracized for such decisions.
Check out the video clip:
You know, I hear what he's saying. It's not like James Deen is getting a bunch of flak for doing this video, right? We're all focused on Abraham and what in the HELL she was thinking.
But, see, I think that's exactly why she's receiving so much criticism: she's not being on honest about her motivations. I swear if she came right out and was like, "Yeah, I totally made a porno and I sold it for a ton of money, so what?" we'd be like, whoah that's kind of extreme but hey best of luck in your new career. Instead, she keeps spouting all this total gibberish about why she made the tape and who the intended audience was.
First she said in a message to her fans,
You have just realized you are an awesome person and you deserve someone. Now that you’re 21, you’ve pretty much been crying every night because you are single and you’re alone. So, you make your own video, celebrate your awesome body (and) get your own sexy shots.
Then she told Dr. Phil,
I’m celebrating my body and I’m showing my feminine side. This is something that never should have been talked about publicly, because it was something that I personally wanted when I’m older because I want those sexy photos of me on my best year. This is my year to celebrate that to me. This was for me and just like how I represent things for myself. (…) I am not shopping the tape. If I’m going to release something because somebody’s already seen it, I really need to take into consideration my future, and yes, there is a money amount to that.
And now she's telling Entertainment Tonight,
A lot of my girlfriends who are back home … have done personal sexy shots, sexual videos … feminine things showing their sexuality and being happy for themselves. Here I am the same age or younger as most of my friends, and I’m like ‘why am I not [as] happy with myself as they are? Why am I not doing this for me? (…) What ended up happening was James Deen, who is in my video…thought it was ok …[to say to] the public ‘I did something with Farrah’ but he did it in his own way of saying ‘I made a porn with her’ … [and] made it his own thing and that’s why I was like, ‘Let me be one step ahead and let me gain control of my own video again.'
Dude. Come on. Is there anyone who actually buys the idea that she made a full-length professionally-shot porn film with a porn star -- one that features anal sex and, ahem, squirting -- which was all for her own private enjoyment, and that the only reason she sold it to Vivid is because that jerk James Deen leaked it to the press?
This is why everyone thinks she's a freakshow and the media isn't being "nicer to her." Not because she made an adult movie -- but because she's either delusional, a complete fool, or both.
What do you think about this whole Farrah Abraham sex tape craziness? Do you believe for a second that it's actually a leaked personal video?
