LAU­REN SPARKS OUTRAGE AF­TER LAUNCH­ING ‘PORNO­GRAPHIC’ DAT­ING SITE

Closer (UK) - - News - By Daisy Mclure

She was forced to deny she was turn­ing to porn re­cently af­ter re­veal­ing she was set to join the sub­scrip­tion­based app Only Fans – no­to­ri­ous for X-rated con­tent. And last week, Lau­ren Goodger shocked fans once again when she launched an adult dat­ing site pro­mot­ing ca­sual sex and the ex­change of un­cen­sored pho­tos and flirty mes­sages with other mem­bers. Lau­ren, 32 – who in­sisted she hoped the site would help her find love too – an­nounced the news on In­sta­gram, telling her fol­low­ers, “Some­thing I’ve made for you... fol­low @l au rens lit­tle se­cret dat­ing .” The site – which charges mem­bers £22 a month – orig­i­nally told users, “Have hot, ca­sual hook-ups with flirty girls like Lau­ren. Whether you are look­ing for a babe or a girl with a bang­ing bod, go on naughty sex dates here.” Though this was later re­moved from the site. For a higher fee, users can prevent the pay­ments from ap­pear­ing on their bank state­ments. Users up­load pro­files, of­ten in­clud­ing ex­plicit pho­tos and videos, and some fe­male users even of­fer paid-for-sex ser­vices.

GOBSMACKED

Fans quickly went on­line to ex­press their outrage, with one in­sist­ing, “I hope she doesn’t have any young girls fol­low­ing her be­cause she is the worst role model. She should be ashamed of her­self.” An­other asked, “What’s next? Her own brothel?”

And in­sid­ers say friends have also been left shocked.

A source re­veals, “Some of her friends are gobsmacked by it. Lau­ren had said she was mor­ti­fied when she was linked to the Only Fans site and in­sisted she’d never be in­volved in any­thing re­lated to porn.

But this site con­tains lots of porno­graphic con­tent. Pals are stunned she wants her im­age or brand as­so­ci­ated with that.

“When the site went live, Lau­ren ad­mit­ted she was stunned at some of the ex­plicit con­tent – par­tic­u­larly the sug­ges­tion of ca­sual sex and af­fairs. She would never con­done cheat­ing, so she asked for a few changes to be made to the site. But she still loves be­ing as­so­ci­ated with some­thing sexy and raunchy.”

Just last month, Lau­ren – who split from fi­ancé Mark Wright in 2011 fol­low­ing claims he’d been un­faith­ful – re­vealed she had en­listed a life coach to help her find a new man af­ter split­ting from on/off flame Joey Mor­ri­son in July when he was caught mes­sag­ing other women.

The source adds, “Friends have told her she’s not go­ing the right way about meet­ing a man. They don’t think a nice, nor­mal guy would try to find a se­ri­ous ro­mance on a site like this and have warned she could scare off po­ten­tial men by hav­ing an as­so­ci­a­tion with some­thing so ex­plicit. They are also sur­prised she’d be in­volved with any­thing that of­fers se­cret hook-ups as she’s been cheated on in the past.”

DES­PER­ATE

But fol­low­ing Joey’s re­lease last month – af­ter serv­ing just over half of a 16-year sen­tence for a string of vi­o­lent drug-re­lated crimes – in­sid­ers say Lau­ren is des­per­ate to boost her sex ap­peal to ap­pear de­sir­able to him.

Last week, Joey liked one of Lau­ren’s In­sta­gram pho­tos – de­spite the pair not fol­low­ing each other – which is said to have re-ig­nited a spark be­tween them.

The source says, “Lau­ren has al­ways felt that she and Joey have un­fin­ished busi­ness and they never re­ally got the chance to see where their re­la­tion­ship could have gone out­side prison. He mes­saged her a few weeks back and ad­mit­ted that he still thinks about her and would be will­ing to give things an­other try. Pals think she’s ramp­ing up the sex fac­tor to tease him. Lau­ren’s pals can’t be­lieve that af­ter all Joey’s done, she’d con­sider let­ting him back in her life, but she can’t seem to stop think­ing about him.”

The source adds, “Friends worry Joey has a hold over Lau­ren that makes her act in a reck­less way. She’s so ea­ger for him to find her hot that she’s gone to ex­treme mea­sures. They think she only up­loads sexy shots on so­cial me­dia so he’ll see them. But this lat­est ven­ture feels like a big step in the wrong di­rec­tion. They’ve told her that this des­per­ate bid to ap­pear sexy could com­pletely ruin her im­age and brand.”
