Accidental Porn Stars
A Swedish-based pornography company chartered a yacht for the Monaco Grand Prix. The executives thought it would be an ideal setup, a private place to “interview” their up-and-coming talent.

The crew was instructed to show each would-be porn star to a stateroom, which the executives took turns going in and out of all week long. Toward the end of the charter, the “interviews” moved on deck, to be captured on film.

It wasn’t cleaning up used condoms and watching live sex topside that bothered the crew so much; it was having to stay out of the camera’s view while serving drinks and hors d’oeuvres to the guests.

“One misstep,” a crew member said, “and suddenly your friends will be watching you on the Playboy channel.”
