Retired Porn Star Writes a Letter to Her Unborn Child
Before her son is old enough to find out the truth of his mother's past on his own, former adult film actress Aurora Snow spills her secrets in an open letter on The Daily Beast
Here's something to think about: how would you communicate to your child about your life before he or she was born if you were say, a porn star? Retired adult film actress 'Aurora Snow' thought of just the thing.
"I was at the doctor's office lying flat on my back with cold jelly on my slight bump of a tummy, hearing a second heartbeat emanate from within me… my whole life flashed before my eyes. I felt accountable for the choices I've made. I have to explain myself to my son."
As a contributing writer to The Daily Beast, Snow wrote a letter to her unborn son and published it, for the whole world to see.
"By the time you read this you will be old enough to browse the Internet, old enough to like girls, and old enough to know the name "Aurora Snow," she writes.
Snow goes on to tell her unborn son that she started off as a nude model to pay for school. She submitted to having sex on video for a larger amount of money – and admits "If I'd known I'd one day change my mind and want a family of my own, I would have made completely different choices."
In an effort to be honest with her unborn child, Snow also incorporated a message: "Remember when you're making big choices in life, think far into the future and ask yourself, 'can I live with that?'"
Reactions to Snow's letter range from praise to contempt. Some commenters even accuse her of doing it for publicity.
Mime Wonder says, "One day her son and his school friends will be watching a video and one of the boys will be yelling out to her son: hey, that is your naked mom with her legs up in the air … How can her son defend his mother's honor when there are hundreds of her videos?"
Susanne S. says, "Nothing to be ashamed of. She hasn't killed people, just done a job. And been good at it. Where's the shame in that?"
Sair J. asks, "if it's a letter to her unborn son, how come it's been published and is now read by thousands?"
Snow decided to lay it all out for her son in an exposé of herself. Did she do the right thing? What would you have done differently?
