"A Porn Star’s Letter to Her Unborn Son"

I've previously told you (here) about what a great columnist porn actress (and director) Aurora Snow has turned out to be. I really enjoy what she has to say (her views on sex issues, and porn) and then I came across this column she wrote for The Daily Beast.

I have to admit when I read the title "A Porn Star’s Letter to Her Unborn Son" I jumped to conclusions and assumed she was writing to a child she'd had aborted. But she wasn't, it was an open letter to her future son, explaining her life choices because she knew that one day he would grow up and learn his mom did porn.

The full story is here, but here are a few excerpts:

My Son, 
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.” I’ve dreaded this day for many years now and my hope is that you find this article before accidentally stumbling upon any pictures or videos that show your mom in a way she never intended for you to see. Let me explain. 
Your mom grew up very, very poor. In early 2000 I was drowning in student loans. Frustrated and feeling my chance at a higher education slipping away, I answered an ad in the Orange County Register newspaper. 
The large bold print caught my eye: Girls Nude Modeling—earn $2,000 per day. 
I had no shame and needed the money. I knew for certain that I never wanted a family of my own. It was an age before everyone and everything was online, and I truly felt I could hide it from my mom, dad, and brothers. What did I have to lose? I planned to be in it for one year, pay back my student debt, and walk away without ever looking back. It didn't quite work out that way. 
The attention made me feel good. The money was incredible. And that nude modeling job soon led to someone asking me to have sex on camera for money. Even more money. I said yes, and that choice led me down the very eventful and colorful path of adult filmmaking. Soon I was on box covers, posters, and even some mainstream TV shows. Your grandpa was living in another state, and found out what I was doing when he saw me on the Howard Stern TV show. In retrospect, I was quite thankful I'd been one of the few girls on Stern's show to keep her clothes on. I maintained a sense of modesty when I wasn't on set. 
By this point in your life, I hope I’ve taught you the importance of honesty, and so I’m going to be honest with you. I’ve done just about everything imaginable in my adult career and if you dig deep enough you will find things you might think are pretty awful. I can honestly say that I approached adult filmmaking as a job, and, like any job I’ve ever had, I felt it important to do my best. Sometimes doing my job well meant doing pretty gross things. Hopefully you never see that stuff. 
Son, I hope this [letter] helps you understand and prevents you from clicking on my XXX video links*. The choices we make can change our path forever in a way we might not understand at the time. I made choices that took me down a path that many people frown upon. 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. When you're 18 it's so easy to see the future and know exactly what you do and don't want, but just 10 years later hindsight sneaks up.

So remember when you’re making big choices in life, think far into the future and ask yourself, “can I live with that?” My answer is in this letter, which I hope speaks for itself.
