Farrah Abraham felt slut-shamed following the release of her sex tape when she was just 21-years-old. Back in 2013, the 26-year-old appeared in a pornographic tape along with the male porn star, James Deen, and it wasn’t mean to go public.
After the tape hit the mainstream, Farrah had no choice but to sign a deal with the pornographic entertainment company, Vivid Entertainment, who would then go on to distribute the video.
When speaking with reporters from MV Mag, in an issue where she appeared on the cover, Abraham revealed what it was like for her to have such a tape out in the open as well as her venture into the adult film entertainment industry.
At the time, the Teen Mom star had no intentions of becoming a staple in the porn industry. She just wanted to experiment and try things out.

However, it wasn’t so simple because, as a celebrity, media sensationalism is undoubted to make a headlining story out of it. According to the reality star, it was an attempt on her part to find the delicate balance between life, fame, and dating.
Unfortunately, she wasn’t prepared for the backlash and claimed MTV and the public scrutinized her actions. She added, “the backlash I received for my sex tape was genuinely hurtful.”
She felt misunderstood for merely attempting to express her sensuality as a woman. Her faith in God and therapy helped her on the path to reconciliation.
As a result of the criticism, Farrah claims some good came of it, namely, that she now understands it’s her mission to “end the stigma around sex.”
When reporters asked her what “sex positivity” means to her, Abraham said it’s all about embracing your sexuality and personal freedom. And free she is; Abraham is getting ready to embark on an entrepreneurial path including the possible creation of a frozen yogurt shop.
