A finance-savvy pornstar uses his fortune to inspire his male fans to invest responsibly and stop wasting their hard-earned money on crypto and NFTs in X-rated videos.
Cherie DeVille, also known as “the internet’s favorite stepmom,” is staging a pornographic protest against crypto chatter, comparing celebrity-backed coins and bored ape NFTs to a digital “Ponzi scam.”
The 43-year-old told The US Sun she was inspired to take action after worrying about how her male counterparts were treating investing and hedging huge sums of money in alleged get-rich-quick crypto programs rather than index funds, IRAs. languages. and other more stable and long-term investment strategies.
“Especially since Covid, a lot of my friends and younger colleagues on set tell me they invest in meme stocks or Gamestop or whatever they’re told on Reddit, say ‘this is amazing’ and invest whatever their investment would be money into things that I personally consider gambling,” Cherie said.
“I have no problem with gambling,” she added. “But these people have to understand that they are gambling with this money.
“I think the big disconnect is that a lot of these people — especially young men, because none of my girlfriends do that — they think they’re investing in their future, but they really aren’t.”
Cherie, a former physical therapist with no formal financial training, says she learned about investing from a young age and grew up watching finance guru Suze Orman on TV.
Through Orman, Cherie said she learned to start planning for her retirement as early as possible.
So, in her latest adult issue, out April 18, she decided to pay homage to her hero advisor by taking on the role of Suze Whoreman, a leathery investment advisor who punishes a young man for his irresponsible investment decisions.
In the film, a disgruntled wife, played by Alison Ray, seeks professional help after her partner (Michael Vegas) squandered all other money on NFTs and other “stupid meme stocks he saw on social media.”
After some erroneous Googling, she contacts Suzanne Whoreman, mistaking her for Orman, and makes an appointment.
During the couple’s consultation with a leather-clad whoreman, she tells them that her methods are “100% guaranteed — especially with irresponsible men.”
At first, the husband rolls his eyes at Whoreman’s suggestions, so the two wives use erotic Pavlovian methods to seduce the man into obeying.
“Have you ever considered a Roth IRA?” DeVille groans during one scene. “If you start investing now when you are young. Oh God. You will get so much until you retire.”
With Whoreman’s sex seminar complete, the husband is adamant that he should take care of his finances and build a balanced portfolio.
Laughing, Cherie explained the film’s message to The US Sun: “Well, I feel like Pavlov’s dog, right?
“Like everyone watching this is jerking off and happy. They have endorphins all over them and they think, maybe subconsciously, every time they hear about an IRA from now on their cock gets hard. Like ‘I want this IRA so badly’.
“I’m unconsciously sneaky,” she added. “But I’m going to get that information across one way or another, let me tell you.”
Cherie, who has been in the adult entertainment industry for 12 years, is in the top 0.3% of OnlyFans performers and earns $1 million annually from her explicit ventures.
This is her first time mixing personal activism with porn, but she believes the medium has the potential to be an educational platform that moves forward.
“As a pornographer, if I go on a talk show or start talking to people about taxes and investing because of some pretty big social stigmas, it doesn’t matter how knowledgeable I am, people aren’t going to take me seriously because of the work I’m doing” , she said.
“So I decided, since I wanted to get that message across, it was best to use the medium I already use, which is pornography.”
Cherie, who researches bitcoin, said her main reason for making the film was that it “broke her heart” to see 20-year-olds putting their money into crypto or NFTs and “really believing in their hearts that this would be theirs to invest in for their retirement.”
She said there’s a common misconception that cryptos and NFTs are simply a way to save for retirement or a “secret backdoor” to get rich.
While this may be true for a small number of investors, it is not true for the vast majority.
“There’s no secret to getting rich quick or building for your future. It’s all about creating a budget, sticking to your budget, and having a plan for what kind of lifestyle you want to live in your 60’s and 70’s or 80′ and 90’s.
“But that’s boring as hell, isn’t it? Wouldn’t it be nicer to just buy a Panda NFT and retire on your yacht? Like yeah, that would be nicer than skimping, saving, budgeting and doing all that, but that just ain’t ‘not gonna happen except for a lucky few.”
THE ‘CULT’ OF CRYPTO
Among her own friends and colleagues, Cherie says it seems only her male peers seem obsessed with crypto and NFTs, calling the obsession “cult-like.”
Statistics support Cherie’s observations; Crypto has one of the biggest gender gaps in finance, with more than twice as many men buying the digital currency than women.
Around 16 percent of men have investments in crypto, compared to just 7 percent of women, according to a survey by CNBC and Acorn.
And according to the American Psychological Association, men are much more likely to gamble or take higher risks than women.
“It’s almost cult-like,” Cherie said. “When you go to crypto investment sites like Discord, they discourage or censor people from asking questions or raising concerns about new coins from NFTs – and that prevents people from being properly informed before making an investment.
“There’s no room for conversation, which actually makes sense because I think if a conversation and an intelligent conversation happened, the holes in this plan would become incredibly obvious and no one would invest.
“And if you try to ask soft questions, you’re immediately hit back with patronizing comments like, ‘Educate yourself, do your research — and that worries me.'”
AN EROTIC EDUCATION
Cherie said initial reactions to her new film have been positive, and she hopes the adult film will help start informative conversations about investing and the potential dangers of hedging all your bets in crypto and NFTs.
“I think whenever I can get more eyes, different eyes for this type of work, or even start an angry conversation about crypto, then maybe a person will look at that and say, ‘Maybe I won’t do this and I will do go for something safer.’
“I hope it saves a few people and also gets people thinking about their investments early on.
“Even if I can convince a few people to invest appropriately in their 20s, it will change their lives.
“It’s going to change their retirement, it’s going to change how long they have to grind at the job they’re grinding at.
“And for me, that’s like a hell of a win.”
