    Courtney Stodden Turns Down $5 Million Porn Deal: "Success Means Different Things to Different People"

    Courtney Stodden's latest project may involve her talking about sex on video, but she says that she has no plans to actually engage in it while a camera is rolling. Not even by herself.

    Her mom-and-manager, Krista Keller, exclusively tells E! News that the 18-year-old recently turned down an offer from online adult-film site Panoporn to shoot two "solo scenes" that would then be edited together for a "360 degree" video—a proposition that Panoporn CEO Max Gambler suggested could lead to $3.5 million to $5 million in profit for Stodden if she agreed to a, er, back-end deal, with a guarantee of $100,000 to $200,000 up front.

    "We would have no request to have her have sexual contact with anyone out of respect for her husband," Gambler wrote in the offer he sent to Keller on Stodden's behalf, obtained by E! News. "These scenes are very simple to do and would only last about 15 minutes and not the typical 1 hour plus movies that other companies try and create."

    "Yes!" Stodden replied emphatically when asked if it was difficult to turn down the idea of banking that kind of money.

    "It is not the direction I am interested in taking in my life," she said. 

    Gambler also pointedly compared what he envisioned for Stodden to the deal Farrah Abraham struck for her sex tape with Vivid Entertainment—and promised that Stodden would make way more money. 

    Asked what she thought about Farrah's reported six-figure windfall, Stodden said, "Success means different things to different people. Everybody has the right to live their lives the way they want to live them."

    And if they want to live their lives with a few tips from Stodden and her husband, Doug Hutchison, all the better.

    The pair are currently filming a video for PassionandPleasure.com, which offers an online course that promises to put the spice back in any relationship.

    Stodden and Hutchison will be dishing on their sex life and discussing how they make their marriage work with specialists Dr. Ava Cadell and Malcom Day.

    Abraham, meanwhile, is still reaping the rewards from her recent business decision: "Thank you Fans 4 the votes #Hottest Sex Scene and #Greatest Celebrity Sex Tape of all time ! http://www.thesexawards.com/," she tweeted today after learning that she was a nominee.
