A British porn star, Candy Charms, risked her life and traveled to Iran in order to get cosmetic surgery.
Candy Charms’ visit only became public knowledge after she had returned home form Iran, and posted the picture on her Instagram account. The photo shows the porn star wearing a black headscarf which complies with the country’s conservative rules on women’s clothing.
“I only told my very close friends and family, as social networks and Twitter are banned so was hard to communicate,” she wrote. Her message went on describe the people of the Iranian capital Tehran as “so kind” and “generous”.
“Really overwhelmed by the whole trip the people are amazing, even when people don’t have much they will do anything for you really puts your own life in perspective,” she added.
Her posts received thousands of comments before it was removed from Instagram. Candy had reportedly closed the account because of fears of attempted hacking but hopes to have it back online shortly.
What is most surprising for many people on social media is how she managed to obtain a visa for Iran.
According to BBC, an Iranian minister says she applied through a travel agency using a different name and claiming to be a beautician. The Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hassan Qashqavi suggested that it was precily because of the high moral stands of the Islamic Republic that officials had not known who the porn star was.
“When an American-British star applied for a visa through a travel company [and entered the country], some asked why they [the agents] have not recognized her. But how on earth would our colleagues recognize these types of ladies?” he said.
As many as 40,000 cosmetic procedures are carried out in the country each year,according to the Iranian Association of Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons, making it one of the world’s top 10 most popular places in the world for plastic surgery.
The porn star even praised the quality of cosmestic work being done in Iran. “It’s very common for models to visit Iran for surgery, especially facial, as they do it the best,” she said .
However, many fear the doctor, who carried out the procedure, life is at a risk.
