Courtney Stodden might be the first person we think of when we think "overt exhibitionist." This has something to do with her proclivity for marrying men nearly 35 years her senior, posting extremely sexual tweets all the time and generally posing close to naked whenever presented with the opportunity.

But it turns out that even Stodden has limits, and one of them is porn. According to E! News, the 18-year-old L.A. resident was offered up to $5 million to shoot a couple of masturbation scenes for Panoporn, but she turned the opportunity down.

Stodden told the entertainment site simply that, "It is not the direction I am interested in taking in my life."

Stodden has admitted to having made a sex tape in the past, but insisted that it was for her own personal use.

It's also not her first porn offer—immediately after turning 18, she was contacted by Babes.com and Brazzers in an effort to get her to perform adult things on video. She turned those offers down as well.
