My Mum and I Make Porn Together
Since the advent of the World Wide Web, there’s only been one real, primary focus: porn. I mean, do you seriously think Tim Berners-Lee was sitting at his desk trying to work out an innovative way to spread knowledge, improve communication, change lives, and all that other pointless, boring nonsense? No. Wise up, square—he was developing the fastest way to send that video of the nun and priest shitting in each other’s mouths to his buddy in rural Montana.
After nearly 25 years of improved skin flick access, we’ve witnessed just about everything known to man crowbarred into porn (as Rule 34 states: “If it exists, there is porn of it”), so it’s not that surprising that the latest variety offered up to us is a mother and daughter duo from Tampa, Florida—22-year-old Monica and 56-year-old Jessica, AKA “The Sexxxtons"—who perform in porn films together.
This has weirded a lot of people out, because it’s not that often that you see a mother and her offspring gargling semen next to each other nowadays, but they don’t actually kiss or have any sexual contact whatsoever, so it’s totally not even that gross, right? I called The Sexxxtons for a chat about their unique gift to the world of adult entertainment.
VICE: Hey guys. So how did the two of you get started in porn?
Jessica: We were mostly money motivated. Monica lost her job, it was Christmas time and we needed money, so Monica began dancing and did really well there. I was bar tending, but I wasn’t making a lot of money, so Monica suggested that I should do porn. I’d never done anything like that, but I decided to give it a try. I liked it and the money was good. Then she gave it a try and she liked it and the money was good.
OK, that’s understandable, but why make porn together?
We had producers come to us and ask us if we’d perform together. Of course, with it being a real mother and daughter, it couldn’t involve any sexual contact between the two of us because that would make it illegal. So we started doing that and we enjoyed it a lot. We enjoy working together—we’re just a couple of performers chasing the American dream.
Fair enough. How old were you when you shot your first film, Monica?
Monica: I was 20. Things are really open between my mom and I, so I just went to her and said that doing porn together was a really good idea and that we should do it, so we did.
Did you always dream of shooting porn together?
I’d already thought about it because I knew it would be worth a lot, but it took somebody coming to us to make us do it.
Cool. Is there a dad in the family?
No, but we don’t really care. My mom was a single mother raising me my whole life, so I don’t really give a fuck about not having a dad.
Do you have boyfriends?
My mom has guys that she sees, but they’re not boyfriends. I’m the same way. I see people but we don’t necessarily date. Some of them know about what we do and some of them don’t.
Have you ever shared the same partner off camera?
Only once. It was one of mom’s boyfriends. He came over and we were all hanging out and watching TV and stuff. We were drinking and having fun and things just got a little out of hand.
