Today on The Tyra Banks Show, Tyra is talking to the Bunny Ranch prostitute who is six months pregnant! Can you imagine that? You’ve got to hear/read about her story!
Alana Love is the 20-year-old woman who chose to become a prostitute at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch when she was six months pregnant. She came to the decision when the father of her baby only offered to pay her $25 a month in child support. Tyra admitted to being angry with Alana for not protecting her baby. Watch this excerpt from the interview:
Here are some quotes from today’s show:
“When I was six months pregnant and bills were stacking up, you need a quick fix. If you go to a minimum wage job it¹s going to take me so long to catch up on bills. I don’t want to bring a child into this world having nothing, I want to be able to have at least what I had before I was pregnant.”
“I just have it in my head that I’m just doing this for my daughter. I wouldn’t want my daughter to do this. I don’t want to have to have her experience this stuff. I want to protect her from things.”
I know that when I heard about this, one of the first things I wondered about(having had three children of my own) was whether she felt comfortable while having sex. So many women (and men) fear that they are hurting their child by having sex during pregnancy (usually, sex is fine during pregnancy but a lot of people have the fear anyway). When Tyra asked her about that, Alana said that she has sometimes enjoyed sex with her clients and added:
“Yes there have been times. It’s mixed emotions, sometimes I’m happy, sometimes it’s hard. When it is hard I choose not to. In the back of my head I’m doing this for my baby, I’m going to be able to support her and not give my child up for adoption, so it’s a mixed emotion.”
I also wondered what types of clients Alana has. Indeed, the things she said about her clients (she averages five per day!) surprised and grossed me out:
“Even if men don’t come for the pregnancy fantasy, they are struck by it. They know they have privacy there so they are able to experience things. There’s not a particular type. There are doctors, there’s the regular guys you see on the street. There’s been a couple different types of doctors, they have to do with babies and stuff so I kind of wonder about it. Are they here for me? Are they here for my child? If I think that they’re not here for me and they’re spending too much time on the baby aspect I push back.
There’s a 30-year-old virgin that came in. He came in for an appointment so he saw me first off, and he wanted to lose his virginity to a pregnant woman. I didn’t understand it. It started off with him showing me pictures of his nieces.”
Um… That makes me feel disgusted. I understand that she needs the money but she really is exposing her baby to all kinds of things that she shouldn’t be (in my opinion). Tyra also asked her if she would go back to prostituting after she gives birth to the baby. This was Alana’s response:
“I don’t know for sure. I did what my goal was to be able to have her and have everything I have. I’m at that goal. Do I stop now or I’ve been marketed very well, do I go back there and grab that money that I made afterwards.”
I hope she gives up this job once she has the baby and tries to live a normal life. Can you imagine how that little girl is going to feel when she learns what her mother was doing while she was pregnant? I would be devastated and I would feel dirty for the rest of my life.
