Porn stars are wonderful mothers. Or at least that’s what Alana Evans, an adult porn star, expressed when she appeared on Dr. Drew’s HLN program earlier this week.

“Porn saved my life. It gave me a way to be with my son, to be with him every day after school,” Evans said on the show. “It gave me enough to take care of myself to take care of him, to pay our bills without being on welfare and stay off public assistance.” Evans even came to the defense of “Octomom” Nadya Suleman, who shortly after filing bankruptcy, has reportedly signed on to star in a masturbation video for extra money.

“Any woman who’s willing to do whatever she has to to take care of her children –even if that means doing porn – good for her,” Evans said. “Other people may not agree with it, but … in reality she is putting her kids first.” And Evans isn’t the only parent to note the financial benefits the adult film industry has to offer.

Still, Shelley Lubben, a former prostitute and porn star, said kids never escape the stigma of the job.
