A YouTuber has promised her fans that she will release a sex tape if she hits one million subscribers. Lena Nersesian aka Lena the Plug made the announcement in the above video that was published on January 18. At the time of writing, the clip has been viewed nearly 250,000 times. In terms of subscribers, Lena is at 127,856. She told her fans, “You may or may not have heard that I am planning on making a sex tape when I hit a million subscribers. I have been approached to do porn multiple times in the last year, putting provocative pictures on the Internet will get you such offers but it’s never been something I’ve been interested in or tempted by.”
Lena adds, “A sex tape with someone that I’m seeing and totally comfortable having sex with – that sounds cool to me. If you want to see me get f***** then you should subscribe to my channel.”

2. The Man Featured in the Video Will Be Fellow YouTuber Adam22; the Couple Has Been Together Since September 2016
Lena says that she and Adam Grandmaison aka Adam22 will make the sex tape when the pair gets closer to one million subscribers. She says that not only does her channel need to hit one million, but so does Adam’s No Jumpers channel. At the time of writing, Adam’s at nearly 400,000 subscribers.
Lena tells Heavy:
Adam and I had sort of joked once when we first met that if the money was right, we’d make porn together. The idea was there from the get-go in a way.
Fast-forward a couple months and I launch a YouTube channel and star alongside him on his channel a bunch (No Jumper). The joke about making a sex tape pretty much evolved into “Sex Tape at 1 million” idea and here we are… We’re both pretty excited about it, to be honest.
The couple has been together since September 2016. In 2006, Adam set up The Come Up, which he refers to as “the most popular BMX website of all time. He also owns a BMX clothing line, Onsomes**t.com, and has a store in downtown Los Angeles.
In the hours after Lena’s video hit the mainstream, Adam wrote on Twitter, “I have phone calls blocked on my phone now so don’t call me anymore.”
3. Lena Graduated Cum Laude From the University of California
According to one of Lena’s Facebook pages, she graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, cum laude with a GPA of 3.69 in 2013. Lena studied psychology at the school. She mentions in her introductory video that she was accepted into graduate school but couldn’t afford the $80,000 fee. Lena tells Heavy that her parents think she “wasted her bachelor’s degree and should have continued on to graduate school when [she] was accepted.”
On her Facebook page, Lena mentions that spent time studying in Sweden, worked with children living with autism and worked as a nanny. When talking about her time in Sweden, Lena says, “I studied abroad in a small University town in the South of Sweden, a short train ride from Copenhagen, Denmark. The country, the people, and the laws are beautiful. Their food is okay, but they know what they’re doing when it comes to desert. Swedes are very nice but somewhat difficult to approach. If you’re going to Sweden do not be disappointed if you do not make any BFFs.”
Prior to going into business for herself, Lena worked as the head of music at social media startup Arsenic.
4. Lena’s Has to ‘Fight’ to Keep Her Instagram Page Online
At the time of writing, Lena’s Instagram page is no longer online. She tells Heavy, “I never delete my Instagram page, I just can’t seem to keep it. I often get flagged and reported on Instagram and my page gets shut down and I have to fight to get it back.” Though Lena is still active on Twitter and Snapchat. She also has a premium Snapchat that offers “full-nude stories that I post daily. [Users] also get to chat with me a bit here and there.” According to LenasPlugs.com, the cost of membership is $29.99. Also featured on that site is Lena’s roommate, Emily Rinaudo, who features in some of Lena’s YouTube videos.
When Heavy asked Lena if she would ever make the move in porn full-time, she said, “I don’t think so.” Lena adds that she has had offers from ten agencies. “I’m a little bit of a control freak and I prefer to work on my own so the private Snapchat thing makes way more sense for me.”
5. One Hater Said in YouTube Comments, ‘You’re Not Going to be the Next Kim K’
Lena has attracted some criticism online for her sex tape promise. In the comments under the video announcing the plan, one user wrote, “You’re making yourself look cheap and worthless. You’re not going to be the next Kim K.” Another said, “There’s going to come a day when you meet a really nice guy, and then him and his friends will stumble upon your sex tapes and just feel ashamed for you.”
When asked about the haters, Lena tells Heavy:
I used to be someone who followed all the rules and did everything I was “supposed” to do. I wasn’t happy.
The way I make money now isn’t exactly something I’m passionate about, but it does give me the time and financial freedom to do things that I am passionate about and enjoy spending my time doing.
I also want to ask them why being naked is such a big deal. Take your clothes off, go touch yourself, maybe try some butt stuff. You might just have some fun.
