Farrah Abraham on Feminism: "I'm Pretty Feminine"

Farrah Abraham is the Teen Mom breakout star who went on to star in Vivid Entertainment's best-selling sex tape of all time. As such, she's fodder for a riveting game of hypotheticals. For example: Would you live free and easy if it meant having verifiable sex only twice?

To become a millionaire, Farrah got pregnant at 17 and then filmed a viral video with famed porn actor James Deen at 22. She has parlayed a few hours of "activity" into an almost-schizophrenic business model that includes strip clubs and children's clothing. She's also behind an album called My Teenage Dream Ended, which is considered either a dark piece of outsider art or a pop travesty, depending on the critic.

Vivid, which has also released videos by Kim Kardashian and Anthony Weiner's latest sexting partner, will open a strip club near Miami Springs on September 12. Farrah is the company's ingenue, so it's appropriate that she'll make an appearance that weekend. She spoke with Cultist to promote that event, along with her various enterprises. As it turns out, she doesn't like being called a feminist very much at all.
