This is Hazel Jones. For those unaware of who Hazel Jones is, she has been in the news a lot recently after appearing on ‘This Morning’ in the UK earlier this month to reveal that she has two vaginas.
The condition, which causes a woman to be born with a double uterus, is known as ‘uterus didelphys‘ and happens to only about 0.1%-0.5% of women.
Due to the abnormality of the condition, the natural curiosity factor of what a double vagina would look like, and the fact that Hazel is quite attractive, she was recently offered 1 million dollars by Vivid Entertainment to appear in one of their adult films. Hazel has rejected the offer.
This is not the first time Vivid has made an offer like this to an everyday woman. Nadya Suleman, better known as Octomom, shot to international fame in January 2009 after giving birth to octuplets. Looking to cash in her increasing public profile, on February 24 2009 Vivid offered Suleman 1 million dollars to appear in an adult film (the original offer can be found here). She rejected this offer. Her financial difficulties (what with the cost of raising so many children with no job and a compulsive hoarding problem) were made very public, so on September 17 2010, Vivid thought they’d give her another chance, only this time they halved the offer to $500,000 (and here is that document). Suleman again refused.
There is one very famous case of somebody who did give pornography a go after making headlines around the world, however. That person is John Wayne Bobbitt.
John Wayne Bobbitt married Lorena Gallo on June 18 1989, when he was just 22 years old. The couple had a lot of difficulty in their marriage, which on the night of June 23 1993, mere days after their 4th wedding anniversary, Lorena entered the room where John was sleeping, and cut off his penis. She then left the house with the severed penis in hand, drove a short while, and tossed his penis out the window of the moving car. Realising that she had just done something really fucked up, she called 911. Emergency services (who must have got a hell of a shock when hearing that call come through) rushed out, found the severed penis, and got it to the hospital, where it was able to be surgically reattached.
Facing mounting medical and legal bills after the incident, in 1994 John Wayne Bobbit appeared in his first adult film, ‘John Wayne Bobbitt: Uncut’. Talk about an ironic title. The film was directed by the legendary porn star, Ron Jeremy (whose IMDb credits list is the only thing longer than his massive dong). This was followed in 1996 with ‘Frankenpenis’, in which John Wayne Bobbitt plays a castrated man who has a “super penis” sewn onto him in an experimental procedure.
With high profile cases such as these, it begs the question: what’s next? Celebrity sex tapes are all the rage as well, ever since the massive sales of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s tape that they filmed while on their honeymoon in 1995. Couple with this the rumours that tapes showing Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian were leaked intentionally to help boost their profile, and people like Montana Fishburne (daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne) being influenced buy this and doing pornographic films in order to gain fame, anything is possible.
It could be Oprah Winfrey next people! Keep checking those news headlines!
And for those of you who are still curious as to what uterus didelphys looks like, here is a clip from the awesome show ‘Embarrassing Bodies‘, where Hazel Jones showed off her condition. Take care, Dear Reader.
