YORK | The father of Alexis Wright’s son said in court documents filed in York District Court that the former Kennebunk Zumba instructor had posed naked with their child in “inappropriate picts,” according to a report from the Portland Press Herald. The documents were obtained by the Press Herald …

    Wow, what a class act. Her parents must be proud. I hope for the sake of the child he/she lives with the father or some other responsible adult.

    When I first heard the prosecution say that there was child pornography involved with this case, I wondered if they were just saying that to get someone in the story to spill the beans, but now I’m beginning to fill in the blanks.  If these allegations are true she is a bigger pervert than I originally thought.  What a class act!

    I have seen pictures in magazines that had nude women with their newborn babies and it is considered Art…so if these are the types of pictures he is talking about , i agree it has to be sour grapes, though if they were in any way sexual, then i hope she gets the book thrown at her for it.  I have a pretty good idea though that they were not.
    And when i mentioned magazines, i mean Elle, Glamour, and those types of magazines.

      I don’t think one can privately film amature porn, perform sex acts with animals, and have sex for money and then turn around and create nude ‘art’ with a child.  Think about it.

        Why not?  Think about it.  How about letting the judge do his job before condemning her?

          I condemned her from the get go after numerous articles stated they have videotaped proof of her doing porn and filming it unbeknownst to those parties involved. Just as I’ve also condemned those who chose to partake in her services. I don’t need a judge’s sentence in order for me to think it’s gross as well as disrespectful to themselves and any involved significant others.

    It’s obvious by watching several nationwide news channels as well as local ones that this woman is really proud of herself. It is clear that she was trying to take over where Heidi Fleiss left off.  Just goes to show you by some of the high profile names on the johns list that even the rich people do sin! My heart goes out to the johns families who have been shamed by the bad decisions of the men in this case. As far as moral outrage goes, she obviously did not care too much about her child as it is aparent that all her free time was spent at the zumba studio doing what she loved best!

      How is this any different than a mother who works 70 hours a week or a father who does the same in pursuit of the almighty dollar? 

      While I personally don’t care if someone wants to sell their body for money, I find that many parents do work too much to “take care” of their family.  While money does help in taking care of a family, there are many other things that come into play.  As a proud parent I have always made a point to put my family first and money (work) last. I think it is much more important to spend what precious little time we have with our kids while they are young.  While this has been a detriment to my financial success it has allowed me to raise a son who is a well rounded, polite, morally strong, and high achieving. If more parents would do the same we would see a better society at large.

        There are many, many people who do not have the luxury of putting many things before work, including their children.  It’s an unfortunate reality in this country.  But, I understand where you are coming from, and I agree that the world would be a much better place if more parents actually parented!

        I agree with you completely.  However, I would like to point out the difference between this woman and other parents who spend many hours working legitimate jobs.  The time she was spending away from her child she was breaking the law and taking the risk of being caught and sent to jail where she wouldn’t be able to care for her child at all anymore.

      Exactly!  and I dont blame him.  Do you think for a minute the judge took her “side business” into consideration when determining payment?  I’ve seen some really great pictures of Moms and their babies where the Mom was topless but covered in some way…they were classy too! 

      I don’t think the Dad needs much evidence to gain full custody in this case.  If he has proof of the inappropriate pictures as the article describes them…CASE CLOSED!!!   Custody to the Dad!

      If she was making unreported income in excess of $100,000/yr., I’d say she owes him some child support back.

          They base child support based on percentages of what either parent makes. If she’s blowing him out of the water (no pun intended) then that means he’s been overpaying.

       Apparently is wasn’t the fact they were nude photos, but the news story above says “inappropriate picts”, which would take it far beyond just a nude photo.  As some have said, a parent and child might be nude together, but the issue is TAKING PICTURES of it.

    Most of the attention is surrounding the “Johns” that paid this woman for sex.  I think that all the attention should be centered on this woman.  What I don’t get is why anyone would operate a respectable business (Zumba Studio), but conduct a shady enterprise that risks EVERYTHING?  Was it worth it to her?  Why did she film the encounters?  She can’t play victim here, and she is most certainly NOT innocent in any manner, shape, or form.  Everyone involved made poor choices, and everyone involved will suffer the consequences of those choices.  Unfortunately, some innocent people will suffer because of what these people chose to do, too.  It’s a bad scenario all around.  Then again, our culture celebrates prostitution scandals, and she will probably get some kind of book deal and become a millionaire.

      Without these Johns paying her, there would be no crime. The Johns should be prosecuted. The so called good, GOD Fearing,  citizens in high places, in our community.

      Perhaps you were living under a rock during the first few months of this story – when she and her business partner’s names were featured almost daily in the media. 

      She’s had plenty of attention – locally AND nationally. 

      One can speculate on a number of reasons for filming her customers – chief among them – PROTECTION (proving complicity if a john threatened to turn her in, pressed her for favors, etc.).  

      In any culture where sex workers are illegal, they don’t have the security of turning to the police if – or when – they are abused – extorted, etc.  We recognize and sympathize with this problem in other countries – but not here.

      Many businesses rely on security cameras. Ms. Wright’s footage is (understandably) a bit more controversial than most.

      I have little sympathy for the johns.  The immorality (cheating on spouses) and illegality (paying for sex) added to their thrills. Ahhh – forbidden fruit is the sweetest! 

      However …

    It depends on what context the pictures were taken in, and who the pictures were intended for. For instance some Mom’s have pictures of them nurturing (not sex  pictures) their child. If this is the case then her ex-husband is merely putting his foot in the door all the way for the other reasons we all know about.  I know I will probably pay dearly on judgement day, but I can’t blame him, for she is what she is.

  • In all fairness, many “evil” women have been known to allow contact between their vaginas and the bodies of young children.  For those who don’t understand, this lewd act is called childbirth.

    • Tyke

       And some of them allow the child to suckle at their breasts too … and they don’t even have clothes over those breasts!

  • It is kind of funny that so many of you can’t see past the charge of prostitution. It is the least of the crimes she has been charged with. It is, as I understand, a misdemeanor. If this was her only charge she could have paid a fine and gone home.

    The reason that this has been so blown out of proportion are the aggravating circumstances: income tax evasion/fraud, welfare fraud, invasion of privacy because she surreptitiously took videos of her liaisons, (although I’m not sure that expectation of privacy exists in the case of committing a crime, that’s for the lawyers to hash out) and the fact that she kept a client list which contained the names of men who were supposed to be public servants.

    As for this man’s assertion that “improper” photos were taken with a child (btw, naked does not equate with improper) it would seem that he had this knowledge and did not come forward until it suited him. That should be accessory after the fact if he did not come forward at the time. Any prosecutor worth their salt might want to investigate that little gem further.

    I really feel sorry for this child though. Had his mom not been (allegedly) scamming the system she could have paid her fine and hopefully worked harder at making a go of her legitimate business, with no one the wiser unless they chose to dig. Her name would have been mentioned in the court news and people would soon have forgotten all about it. But now it has turned into a three ring circus, with this new twist adding yet another juggler to the act, and her son will have to deal with the repercussions the rest of his life.

    Perhaps it is time to stop prosecuting victimless crimes (which are always about money) and let prostitution be legalized so that those who wish to participate have to get a license, be regulated and pay taxes on their gains just like everyone else. That particular change in the law would benefit not only those who work in the sex industry, but the state as well because of the new revenue stream. It should not be illegal anyway; there is no reason other than religious bias and our Constitution says that should not stand. Puritanical laws and prohibitions only ever do harm to the people at large and do not ever prevent the “moral crimes” they were meant to address. They serve only to enrich those who would exploit others, on both sides of the law. A lesson we can’t seem to learn in this country.

    Oh, I have a question. Why is it that a person who has consensual sex with another person for a fee is committing the crime of prostitution but people who perform in pornographic movies, (ostensibly having sex with other people for money), are not? Clue….follow the money.

    • Tyke

       I’m not sure about video, but in Maine it is perfectly legal to make an audio tape of yourself interacting with someone else even if they don’t know about it. Unless she actually did something to try to extort money from the men she taped with her I’m not sure that charge could hold up.

    • Anonymous

      did you just say her prostitution charges could have been handled with a fine? doubtful…  especially considering the fact that it was with not just one, but hundreds of men…. on video…  this woman is a freak, and probably isnt a great mother,,,,  a quick google search and you can see what im talking about, she has videos all over the net,,,, and if the mother of my child was making videos like that, i’d be doing the same thing this man seems to be doing… getting my daughter as far away from that situation as possible!!

          • Yawningattrolls

            Obviously you haven’t researched your answer for such an overeducated guy. And who’s calling who a pervert dear narcissistic troll? At least I realize I am :) 

      • No, I said that in most cases her charges WOULD have been handled with a fine. The fact that she has videos of herself having sex with different men does not in itself prove prostitution. And I would be willing to bet that the johns in the videos, if they have good lawyers, will claim it was consensual; no crime. 

        I did not say she was a good mother or a bad mother. One’s sexual proclivities, assuming we are talking about consenting adults, does not automatically make a person one or the other.  Personally I do not know what kind of mother she is. I don’t know the woman, her circumstances at home nor her behavior with her child.

        I was talking about the aggravating circumstances in this case, which turned what should have been a simple prostitution charge into the mess it has become. It has become such because apparently it titillates the masses and allows people like yourself to pass judgment on others, there-by making themselves feel superior. BTW, performing in pornographic movies is not automatically grounds for having your children taken from you. (It is legal.) It can and I am sure will be considered at the time there is a custody review for this family, but it will only be a part of the equation.

    Alot of Mom’s have a picture taken with their infants lieing over their bare chest, I have seen Dads in the photos too, nothing sexual, nothing exposed.  I am betting this is the case here.  The errs of her ways doesn’t make her a bad mommie but probably the Dad should have temporary custody until this mess is over.  Can’t blame him for seeking custody at this time, but he may be no better in the eyes of the court himself, I’m sure we will find out.
