Pamela Anderson reveals she's been a victim of sexual abuse
Pamela Anderson has been "spat on, slapped and hit" during sex.
The 49-year-old was joined by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach as she appeared on U.K. television show This Morning on Friday (14Oct16) in her ongoing bid to draw attention to the problems caused by men's reliance on pornography.
While she acknowledges her past as one of the most famous sex tape participants in the world, after X-rated footage she made with then-husband Tommy Lee was stolen from her house and marketed worldwide, Pamela insists there's "nothing fun" about being treated like an adult movie star in the bedroom.
"Have you ever been treated like a porn star in bed? It's no fun at all, slapped, hit, sex games, spit on… That's sex these days," she said.
When host Ruth Langsford asked Pamela if she'd ever experienced that, the mother-of-two replied: "I have and I never want that to happen to me again.
"I think also people put that image on me, that I have to be wild and crazy and I'm thinking, god this porn addiction... There is a woman lying, living and breathing in bed and you're in the bathroom with a computer (watching porn) there's something going on."
Co-host Eamonn Holmes then jumped in to cheekily remark to Pamela: "I can’t imagine any husband of yours being in the bathroom with a computer watching porn..."
However, she conceded that her sex tape and the fact she has posed naked for Playboy magazine mean she is "part of the problem" herself.
"I should probably disqualify myself from this whole situation because I was in Playboy magazine, and I had a tape that was stolen from my home and went all over the world and people saw things they should never have seen," she said.
"But I didn't think Playboy was pornographic. I'm a romantic. I like being sexy, every woman likes being sexy. I misunderstood that attention for love."
Pamela has now joined forces with author and spiritual advisor Rabbi Boteach to call for a "sensual revolution" - asking people to call time on their pornography addictions in a bid to encourage better sex among couples.
She insists that intimacy is the most important thing, explaining: "We want a sensual revolution, intimate relationships mean so much better sex. We're not prudes, we're not saying 'no sex', we're talking about better sex."
Pamela also insisted she doesn't regret stripping off for Playboy in the past, because her experience as an object of lust means she has "authority on the subject".
