The Real World Chicago‘s Tonya Cooley is taking her acting career to the next level, appearing in a soft-core porn film on Cinemax. Although she doesn’t receive top billing, Tonya is essentially the star of a 27-minute episode, as an observant reality blurred reader noticed. This line of work is not entirely new to her; earlier, she appeared in Playboy.
In “The Erotic Traveler 02: Lost in Ecstasy,” which is available on Cinemax OnDemand and airs several times Wednesday and Sunday, “A photo of a couple in a passionate embrace sparks a debate between Marissa and Allison as to whether it depicts romance, ecstasy or lust,” according to the network.
In the episode–I can’t believe I watched it, even with lots of fast-forwarding; I suffer for my art–a series of imagined flashbacks about the man and woman in the photo lead, of course, to various sexual encounters. Tonya’s characters (she appears to play more than one, but really, no one spent a lot of time on the script) are involved in multiple sex scenes, probably simulated and not at all hard-core. Still, she appears fully nude as she walks on a beach topless, gives and receives oral sex, is penetrated from behind, and has other forms of sex.
While her dialogue is about as awkward and bad as it was in E!’s The Scorned, she does a respectable job faking sex. Below is photographic evidence that’s mostly PG-13 but probably NSFW.
