Question: Dear Luise: I am 19 year-old boy. I have been dating my girlfriend for 3 years and we are sexually active. We plan to star as porn stars. How do we tell our parents our career ambition and ask them to accept that is all right. T.
Answer: Dear T. Well, to give you an indication of how “worldly” I am, I first read your question as wanting to be “prom” stars.
I don’t think that it is ever going to be all right with your parents. Like other careers that are connected with sad and lonely people (not to mention perverted)…it will be short-lived and you will meet a lot of unsavory characters. Most parents would be brokenhearted.
There may be money there for a while but no dignity or self-respect…at least not in other circles…and certainly not after the novelty wears off. You are free to throw your lives away but I find it disheartening that your career ambitions will see you playing to such a sick and limited audience. Blessings, Luise
