Former priest becomes porn star at 83 | Confesses he is a gay

Norm Self is a priest. That’s not news. What is, is that at 83 he appeared in his first adult film along with two other film professionals and described his experience as “splendid.”

The North Carolina man has made three more films so far. What’s even more interesting is the fact that Self is a retired clergyman, The Sun reports.

In 1997, Self began working as a campus minister and met a group of gay men and eventually realised: “Guess what, I’m a gay man.”

Although Self isn’t paid for his adult films, he is of the opinion that he is “having a party”.

It all began with his housemates asking him whether he was willing to sign up for a film, and speaking about it, Self told The Sun, “My housemate asked me if I’d be in a film. I was invited in and all of a sudden all this attention comes to me. 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?”

Self, in an interview with HuffPost in 2018, had said that he is a “sacred intimate” or a teacher who helps people of “all genders explore the healing power of pleasure”.

At his age, Self said that his body is “indeed a temple where intimacy and ecstasy intermingle,” adding that he would “absolutely” make another adult film again.

“It was splendid! How could it not be? (I was in) a blessed rural setting, surrounded by a cast and crew of loving, competent, supportive brothers intent on sharing the good news of the healing power of pleasure. What could be more delightful? And if you’ve seen the video, with the two adorable models “performing, what else could be lacking?” Self said.

Asked about the ‘biggest misconception about older people and sex’, Norm Self said that although he hasn’t researched as much on the subject, “but I would speculate that the biggest misconception is that sex ‘wears out’ and isn’t for elders.”

Self, in fact, is aware of people older than him, who also enjoy sex. “My sad assumption is that anyone who believes that and gives up on having sex is using their failing joy from sex as an excuse for other dynamics in their life that robs the sex of its lustre and bliss.” Norm Self said.
