Review: Octomom Sex Tape – Home Alone (Nadya Suleman)

octomom-home-aloneOctomom Home Alone is a pornographic film featuring prominent American mother Nadya Suleman, also known as “Octomom,” masturbating. The DVD was released on 16 July 2012 by Wicked Pictures and drew media attention given Suleman’s celebrity and recognition from the AVN Awards.

In 2009, Suleman gave birth to the Suleman octuplets. News of the octuplets caused an international media sensation. Public response was largely negative, including death threats.

Although under severe financial pressure raising 14 children, Suleman had publicly stated she would not do pornography. She explained that stance, saying “I’ve been celibate for 14 years and I’m a regular church-goer.” She also claimed she had never masturbated. However, in 2012 Suleman filed for bankruptcy in federal court, claiming a $1 million debt. She thus reversed her earlier position, saying “If it’s a job, and it’s a well-paying job, and it’s going to allow me to get out of here and move in a very safe, huge home that they deserve, I’m going to do it.” She was paid a five-figure amount and monthly royalties.

Under director Brad Armstrong, Suleman filmed her scenes in a San Fernando Valley mansion. She was reportedly nervous upon her arrival, but calmed after speaking with other adult performers. The producers also showed Suleman pornographic films to prepare her and gave her advice on her performance. Suleman also credited her manager Gina Rodriguez for producing and marketing the video.

Suleman later said of the video, “It was such a positive experience for me and helped me embrace my sexuality.” She also described the scenes as “empowering and liberating.”

Japanese Masturbation Bars for Women

masturbationbarLove Joule, located in the Shibuya entertainment district, opened in July and provides Japan, according to its Web site, with its first “love and sex bar dedicated to women.”  Woman masturbation is not as openly accepted in Japan and this is something some Japanese women would  like to change. 

The wall behind the counter is adorned with dozens of colorful sex toys. Megumi Nakagawa, the bar’s proprietor, explains that typically a bar will have bottles of alcohol lining the wall. The appearance of vibrators, however, provides women with more confidence in speaking about spanking.

“Once they take a seat, customers are able to experience a pleasant place in which they can openly discuss masturbation,” says Nakagawa. “Since most people view female masturbation as something of a mystery or taboo, it is not a usual topic at typical bars.”

Nakagawa describes the atmosphere at Bar Joule as “fashionable and sexy in a different kind of space — perfect for girls-only discussions or a date.”

Customers include women from the commercial sex (fuzoku) industry and adult video (AV) actresses. On the bar’s Facebook page, former AV star Nayuka Mine visited in September, as did Sayo Hayakawa, the fashion model known for appearing in Koakuma Ageha.

But gents should take note that only women are allowed, with exceptions being made for men accompanied by ladies.
