Porn-Star Wife Defends Her Navy SEAL Husband’s Porn-Star Side Gig

news

It’s not easy keeping a marriage together, especially in the military. But for some couples, porn helps.


That’s the claim of the wife of Joseph John Schmidt III — by day, a decorated Navy SEAL with 23 years of service, by night an adult film star named “Jay Voom.”

Schmidt’s wife — an adult film actress known in the sex-film biz as “Jewels Jade,” who says she pulled her beau into the biz — spoke exclusively with Militaryoneclick.com for an interview published April 20.

“Quite honestly, a lot of our friends are divorced,” Jade told the site. “But we’re still married, even with all the stress, even with my crazy occupation and his crazy occupation. I think it’s because of our communication and because we have a lot in common.”

The pair’s porn-stardom began following a string of financial woes in 2008. Hoping to cash in on the real estate boom, they bought up property, but quickly lost more than they took in when the markets crashed.

With mounting bills, a baby, and concerns that their debt would impact Schmidt’s security clearance and cost him his job, Jade returned to the porn industry, where she’d worked before the couple got married.

“My tattoos are recognizable, my voice is recognizable," she said. "Everything about me is recognizable. I've done over 300 films. I can't just get a normal job anymore. I'm trapped. That's the thing people don't realize before they get into this industry."

In time, Schmidt — who was reportedly making $60,000 as a special operator — joined her on screen and starred in 29 films.

For a while, it seemed to work. But just eight months before he was set to retire from the Navy, news of Schmidt’s double life as “Jay Voom” came to light, prompting an investigation that’s put his retirement pension in jeopardy.

Throughout all of this, the couple has remained together for 13 years.

“You know, it’s been as difficult as people probably would guess,” Jade said. “We’ve had jealousy and lots of fighting about it. Really, it took Jay actually being on set and in a film himself to understand that I’m just doing a job.”

While it’s still unclear what’s in the cards for Schmidt, and whether the Navy will throw the book at him for moonlighting as a porn star, one thing’s for sure: He’s well-positioned to corner the market on operation-themed adult films.

Camesha Walters was a petty officer 3rd class living in Norfolk. Her husband was a foreign national living in Bangladesh.

But to boost her take home pay, Walters told the Navy in 2015 her husband was a U.S. citizen living in Brooklyn, N.Y. She said she needed larger housing and cost of living allowances to support him.

Walters, 37, was sentenced Friday to five months in jail on charges she stole almost $140,000 from the federal government.

Following her release, she will be on house arrest for six months. She also must perform 200 hours of community service and pay full restitution.

In a not-so-veiled threat to the Taliban, President Donald Trump argued on Monday the United States has the capacity to bring a swift end to the 17-year-old war in Afghanistan, but he is seeking a different solution to avoid killing "10 million people."

"I have plans on Afghanistan that if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth," Trump said on Monday at the White House. "It would be gone. It would be over in – literally in 10 days. And I don't want to do that. I don't want to go that route."
