Flo – Did Progressive’s Spokeswoman Ever Do Porn?

Was Flo ever a pornstar?

Flo from Progressive - Was She Ever in Porn

“Did Flo from those Progressive commercials ever do porn?”  That’s actually a pretty common question that people ask me.  And, for the life of me, I really can’t understand why.  To cut to the chase, no, the actress who plays Flo – Stephanie Courtney – has never appeared in any porn films.  Flo is not a pornstar.  She is, however, probably one of the most fantasized about women on television right now, outranking many full-time TV and movie stars in the area of weird sex fantasies.

If I had to guess, I think the people who ask about Flo/Stephanie Courtney being a pornstar do so because, well, they really hope that she was in porn.  As I said, Flo has attracted a huge fan following and more than a few of those fans would like to see nothing more than their favorite insurance spokesperson doing some hardcore porn.  Which, again, is something I don’t quite understand.  At various times in my life, I’ve had unhealthy attractions to Hilary Clinton and Courtney Love, but I struggle to understand what’s so sexy about Flo.  Not that she isn’t attractive – Stephanie Courtney is indeed incredibly pretty – but listening to a girl talk about insurance polices is an instant turn-off for me.

Flo Porn

A scene from Hustler’s “America’s Favorite Commercials Gone Porn”

All of that said, in 2011, Hustler did put out a porn parody film that featured scenes based on popular commercials.  America’s Favorite Commercials Gone Porn did feature a Flo sex scene, though Stephanie Courtney had no part of it.  In the film, Flo was an overly-perky sales rep for “Aggressive Insuarance” (see what they did there?), with the scene having the tagline of, “I’m less annoying with your cock in my mouth.”  So, no, Stephanie Courtney has never appeared in porn, but this if you really want to see someone pretending to be Flo engage in all sorts of filthy, hardcore sex, this is probably your best bet.

Now, in doing the research for this post (enough people have asked about Stephanie Courtney being a pornstar that I had to look into it), I did learn some interesting, non-porn related facts about Flo.  And since there’s a better than even chance that if you’re reading this post you have at least some form of interest in Flo/Stephanie Courtney, I thought I’d at least take the time to pass some of these tidbits along.  Especially after I crushed your dreams of coming across a long-lost Flo sex tape.

Who is Progressive’s Flo?

As I mentioned above, Flo’s real name is Stephanie Courtney.  Ms. Courtney is an actress from Los Angeles who, before landing the Progressive gig, appeared in several commercials and even some television shows.  One of the most interesting pieces of Stephanie Courtney trivia I came across is that she has a solid connection to the Geiko Caveman.  No, no, not a sexual connection, please stop going back to the porn thing.  What I was talking about is the fact that <gasp!> Flo has appeared on television alongside the Caveman.  I’ll pause for a moment to allow proper time for your mind to be blown.

Flo - Courtney Stephanie

This is what Stephanie Courtney looks like when not dressed up like Flo

Just before being selected to bring Flo to life for Progressive, Stephanie Courtney appeared in three episodes of Caveman, the long-forgotten ratings disaster that was based off the popular Geiko commercials.  Scandalous!  Well, not really I guess.  Considering only about ten people actually watched the Caveman show, and eight of them probably committed suicide from the shame of it shortly afterwards, there really wasn’t a whole lot of outrage over this coincidental crossing of the streams.

I mentioned above that Stephanie Courtney has appeared in some television shows.  And, no, Caveman wasn’t the only show that she had a part in.  In fact, Courtney has appeared in several others, including House, Madmen, and The United States of Tara.  Additionally, Courtney even has some movie experience.  She’s appeared in Blades of Glory and The Heartbreak Kid, another piece of trivia that will probably have some of you shaking your heads in disbelief.

As for the character of Flo, Stephanie Courtney is doing rather well in the role.  According to Celebrity Net Worth, she earns about $500,000 a year in exchange for her portraying the overly-happy insurance checkout lady.  And while there was some controversy about Flo maybe needing to be “replaced” as a result of her being too nice and happy, there is no sign of her popularity with fans slipping even a little.

And in terms of why so many people find he so sexy, Stephanie Courtney also seems confused about the fascination with Flow.  In an interview with AdWeek, she was asked about Flo’s sex appeal.  This is what she had to say about that…

I don’t know what it is. The way I play her, she’s pretty much the most asexual thing on TV right now. I think the Geico lizard puts out more sexual vibes than Flo does.

So to recap, NO, Flo (aka Stephanie Courtney) NEVER had a porn career.  This probably won’t stop people from sending me multiple emails a week on the subject, but I did want to at least try to set the record straight.
