Courtney Stodden, once referred to as the ‘teen bride’ for marrying Lost actor Dough Hutchison when she was just 16, is selling her solo sex tape. The proceeds from the porn flick will be donated to various charities.
Page Six reports that Courtney Stodden was reluctant to sell the sex tape at first. She had her attorney write to Steven Hirsch, the president of Vivid Entertainment, and demand that he return the tape. She also issued her demands via a statement to Fox411 on Thursday.
“I want my tape back and Mr. Hirsch needs to respond to my attorney’s demand letter to return it to me immediately,” Stodden said. “My private video’s not for sale. I don’t need the million dollars.”
It seems over the weekend, Courtney Stodden realized all the good a tape of her masturbating could be for society. That’s when she decided she would go through with selling the sex tape to Vivid Entertainment, and would donate the $1 million proceeds to charity.

So exactly which charity or charities will benefit from Courtney Stodden’s sex tape?
TMZ reports she is leaning toward benefitting animal rights groups and “children with cancer.”

There has never been much about Courtney Stodden that is normal. Why would the sale of her sex tape be any different? At least someone–other than just those who view the porn film–will benefit from her generosity.
Are you scratching your head over this one, too?
