Now, at a basic level, let me just say that my sympathies go out to anyone who struggles with any form of addiction, particularly if they come from a family with a history of it. (I don’t believe that we need to rehash Charlie Sheen’s numerous dependencies, chemical and otherwise.) That being said, she believes she’s being saved from one form of unhealthy living … because of another form of unhealthy living. And she’s seeking advice on quitting vaping through another form of unhealthy living. I’m unfamiliar with Sheen’s content on OnlyFans, which can be pornographic or simply suggestive. That being said, Fox News said she self-identified as a “sex worker” on her social media accounts in June, but noted in the TikTok video that “I am not a p-star.” “I don’t meet up with people. I don’t film myself having sex. I don’t do that, but I also have no judgment toward the people who do, do that,” she said, adding she was “not comfortable” doing that. That being said, one reasonably assumes she’s getting a breast augmentation not for reconstructive purposes but because it advances her career as a sex worker — which, in and of itself, is unhealthy. In a systematic review of studies published in April by Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica and Wiley, three researchers from the University of Cordoba in Spain found that, “Mental health problems were prevalent among sex workers. Depression was the most common mental health problem; however, other psychological problems were also high, including anxiety, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation. Sex workers are exposed to numerous work-related risks, including violence and high-risk sexual behaviors.” In other words, using a surgery associated with sex work to eliminate an unhealthy habit of nicotine vaping is hardly going to save one’s life, particularly if one is going into it with the idea that plastic surgery to fit an airbrushed, pornographic ideal of femininity is health. Rather, it throws one from the frying pan into the fire. And where is she asking for advice on quitting vaping so she can advance her career as a sex worker? TikTok, a digital dopamine machine and attention-generator linked to mental health problems of its own. Now, do I have any reason to doubt Sami Sheen’s problem is real? No, of course not. But the problem isn’t vaping — which is what she’s been led to believe it is. Yes, vaping is a problem and linked to poor health outcomes. However, in 2023, we try to pretend that there are no mental health externalities to sex work — and if there are, it’s just because of a prudish culture. Meanwhile, liberal tech giants continue to insist there’s nothing wrong with endlessly scrolling on social media. Just keep feeding them your personal data. Really, everything is fine. Now, I’m not going to avouch that “we’re living in the worst timeline;” I’d have to believe the bubonic plague or Stalin’s USSR has this beat. However, when a sex worker and child of Hollywood stars takes to TikTok for the dual purposes of attention-getting and trying to quit what she says is her real unhealthy habit — nicotine vaping — one can indeed catch a glimpse of why the phrase is so oft bandied about.
