    MONEY MORAL DILEMMA: Should Jordan take her kit off for cash?

    MONEY MORAL DILEMMA: Should Jordan take her kit off for cash? 22nd May 07 at 11:22 AM
    Here's this week's hypothetical situation for you to cogitate on:

    Should Jordan take her kit off for cash?

    Jordan is a 24 year old primary school teacher with debt coming out of her ears.!A friend she trusts has asked her to do a one-off glamour shoot for a men's magazine that involves full frontal nudity.!This isn't something she'd ever normally consider and!will shock her religious parents; yet in one foul swoop the fees she's being offered for 'buy-out' rights would more than halve her debts.

    Its a matter of personal moraility surely? It depends on Jordans own view of glamour photograhy, not anyone elses. if Jordan were to take the advice of anyone she would be wrong. She has to decide for herself whether flashing the gash is worth the cash.

    I'd get my kit off for 10 bob, but might just be me.

    The only problem I see with doing it is whether someone she knows would see it - what if a parent saw it and caused trouble in her main job?

    No way. 24 years old and a primary school teacher. Imagine a big brother or father having a copy of the mag lying around at home - 9 year old wee Jimmy has a sneaky look through it and Wow! Miss X! Switch to image of said magazine being paraded about the classroom, other parents, teachers, WEBSITES. Cue, end of career as someone who is supposed to have a sensible, well-balanced, disciplined, approach to life and work. Ain't worth it.

    No way! If she did something other than teaching it wouldn't be such an issue, but she might get fired if the school finds out - and then where will she be? She'll be left with no income and some serious difficulty finding another job. Remember, we're talking full-frontal here!

    If she wasn't a primary school teacher, I'd say she should go for it provided she is comfortable with it. But as she's a teacher, I think she would be risking her day job - a teacher was sacked recently in my area for doing some comparitively innocent topless shots. So if she wants to keep teaching, she should probably keep her clothes on. If she wants to model as a career, rather than teach, that's a different matter. Also, regardless of their day job, nobody should pose for glamour shots unless they are 100 per cent comfortable with it. It's not something anyone should do purely for the money - they should enjoy it and be comfortable with it too, and they should also be very aware that it's not something they would be able to do long-term. They'd be unlikely to keep making money past their early to mid 30s.

    I'm not sure what's worse - posing for the pics and making a lot of cash or buying the magazine? Surely anyone who recognised her wouldn't embarass themselves by admitting where they saw her?

    Madonna started out this way and it doesn't seem to have done her much harm.

    If she has no hang-ups about doing it herself then I would say Yes but because of her job then she has to say No - if it ever became public then she would lose her job instantly...
    You should never call somebody else a nerd or geek because everybody (even YOU !!!) is an
    "anorak" about something whether it's trains, computers, football, shoes or celebs

    If she is thinking of gettering her kit off, she should not be teaching children.

    Sounds more like she should be a lady of the night than a primary school teacher
  • Mozette
    Yes, why not.
  • TessTickle
    If she's got no hang ups, and doesn't care about people seeing it, then why not.
    I'd definately think about it, so would alot of others who are honest lol
  • keefrto
    She will probably earn more money from the spin offs than as a primary school teacher and besides she will probably never get a job again as a priamry teacher either.
    good luck girl!

    I hate to be picky-picky, Jenny -- and you may have chosen a deliberate mistake because you think it's "foul" for Jordan to take her clothes off -- but that should actually be "one FELL swoop" !

    Absolutely, the opportunity to clear half her debts in one go and put a smile on the face of the readers of said magazine (assuming she isn't minging) she shouldn't think twice.

    It will certainly make for a much more interesting parents evening when the father start giving her knowing grins.

    No way!
    Holy cow, no way! Or rather, yes if she wants to halve her current debts and completely flush her entire career down the toilet. A primary school teacher? It would be found out, you can be sure of it. She would be sacked, and no other school would touch her.

    Yeesh, this is a short-term gain and no mistake. And she'd still have half her debts left!
    Proud to be dealing with my debts

    Why Not?
    I would say that Jordan is lucky to have the opportunity to get rid of half her debts. I guess she must be attractive or the chance wouldn't have arisen. Who knows, perhaps if she makes a good job of it, she'll be offered another photo shoot so she can get rid of her debts altogether.

    What's worse, the constant worry of debt hanging over your head, or the worry that someone might recognise you?

    Who knows, at 24 years old, she might have a good few years of earning big money, and then when the work dries up she could still go back into teaching.

    Go for it Jordan - it's your body and if you really can't cope with the stigma, then cut or dye your hair and move somewhere really nice. After all, being photographed 'in the buff' isn't exactly pornography is it...... Man, this is the 21st Century, to read some of the comments on here, you'd think we'd gone back to Victorian times..... "We are not amused!"

    Because of the nature of her job I would say NO WAY unless she undoubting wanting to get fired.

    Saying that, she could earn a hell of a lot of media attention if she chooses to and then further work.

    As a dad I wouldn't mind but I know my wife certainly would!

    Can she be sacked if found out? Anyone acutally know for sure or is this all speculation rather than fact? As a [arent it would not bother me as long as she was a good teacher. There are plenty of teachers out there who do not do glamour shots but should be fired due to incompetence. Well. I guess this is the UK with the lowest rating for child welfare etc. in Europe so we have to maintain these old fashioned dogmatic ideas to keep us at the bottom of the pile.
