Hazel Jones, the British woman who recently revealed that she has two fully formed vaginas, turned down a $1 million offer to do porn. Vivid Entertainment CEO Steve Hirsch reached out with the one million dollar offer to 27-year-old Jones, who has been present in the media when she went public with her condition, uterus didelphys, which caused her to be born with two vaginas, as well as two uteruses and two cervixes.

Hazel Jones, 27, appeared on iTV1 show This Morning on Wednesday to reveal an unusual medical condition to the world: because of something called uterus didelphys, the UK woman essentially has two vaginas, as well as two uteruses and two cervixes.
Having Two Vaginas
The UK woman, who likes to celebrate her unique body, said she first realized she was different when she began her period at age 14. It wasn't fun, she said. I used to suffer from horrendous cramps... I now know that my periods were worse because I have two wombs.
Still, Jones only discovered her condition after losing her virginity at age 18. Her boyfriend at the time noticed something was different, so Jones went to a local hospital to get checked out.
It was there that she first learned about uterus didelphys,which occurs when a septum that usually breaks down between two tubes to form one uterus doesn't break apart, instead forming two uteruses in one body.
According to MayoClinic.com, double uterus is rare and sometimes not even diagnosed. Its Web site also stated that the percentage of women with a double uterus is likely higher in women with a history of miscarriage or premature birth.
Although the condition itself is not extremely rare, occurring in around one in 3,000 cases, having two uteruses, cervixes and vaginas as a result is much less common.
Hazel Jones has a dividing wall between two vaginas as a result of her condition, a side effect that she calls one in a million.
If you are not aware that you have got this, it can be really uncomfortable, Jones told This Morning hosts Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. I thought I was having cystitis, I thought I was having urine infections from a young age, when I wasn't. I was actually tearing the middle septum.
'I thought it was amazing.'
When Jones was diagnosed with uterus didelphys, she was offered surgery to correct her condition. Jones, however, turned it down, in part because of the risks involved.
They have to treat you like they would a post-op transsexual, because if you have something removed from an area like that there's a risk of healing back together, she said.
You have to have it separated all the time, and it can be very uncomfortable and cause scar tissue.
Instead, Jones decided to embrace her body, and now feels that her two vaginas are something to be celebrated, not hidden.
As soon as I found out what it was, I told everybody, she gushes. I thought it was amazing. It's definitely an ice breaker at parties.
Jones is even comfortable enough with her condition to pose for explicit Bizarre Magazine, and says she sometimes goes to fetish clubs with her husband Riki, who she says is very supportive.
For Jones, the most important thing is communication and trust.
I have never entered into a relationship without explaining the difference about me, she said, [and] I've never had a bad reaction about it either.
'Most of them get one choice. My fella has two.'
Jones also revealed one interesting side effect of having two vaginas: because of her condition, she was able to lose her virginity twice, and to have sex with either vagina.
Most of them get one [choice] for the rest of their life, she quipped about her husband Riki. My fella has two.
Initially, Hazel Jones found sex very uncomfortable. Now, however, she says she has a great sex life with no issue whatsoever.
The only downside to her condition involves having children. Doctors tell Jones she may experience complications if she decided to get pregnant, including a higher risk of miscarriage, premature birth and bleeding during pregnancy.
She's also at risk for doubling her children while she's pregnant with one. I'm told that if I get pregnant, I've got to be careful I don't get pregnant again in the other side, she told This Morning.
Because you can have pregnancies that are months apart.
'I'm quite happy to show them.'
Nonetheless, Jones doesn't plan to let her condition, which she has come to see as an overwhelming positive, hold her back from starting a family.
My quirky condition does not make me shy or hold me back, she told The Sun. In fact, it's something I celebrate.
She'll even let people see her two vaginas up close. If women want to have a look, I'm quite happy to show them, she said. It's not something I'm embarrassed by.
