Retired Minister Starts New Career As Porn Star At Age 85

Norm encourages other older people to embrace the same lifestyle that he has.

A retired minister has found his calling: at the age of 85, he is enjoying his new career as a porn star. Norm Self, who was once a clergyman at a university, has made four pornographic films in two years and according to Mirror, encourages older people to also choose a “mind blowing” sex life.

Norm said: “My housemates asked me if I’d be in a film. I as invited in and all of a sudden all this attention comes to me.” He continues, “It’s almost like having a party, that’s one of the things I admire about this way of doing porn.”

“We are going to have sex anyway so why not make it a liberating and bonding experience instead of hiding it away in the shadows?” he says.

Norm, who grew up in Alabama and joined the clergy when he was 18-years-old says, “My 85-year-old self is more vibrant than my 45-year-old self. It’s as though my erotic energy has taken over and inhabited me.”

Norm met his wife while he was in his 20s. They were married for 28 years, during which time he realized that he was gay. He separated from his wife and moved in with a man, his “housemate.” Then, he was asked to be in a porn film.

He did not worry about the church’s reaction to his new lifestyle. He said, “My problem with the church is that it’s rare that sex is treated as a joyous part of spiritual life.”
