The US Navy is investigating a ­decorated Seal who moonlights as a porn actor.

The Naval Special Warfare Command wants to know whether Chief Special Warfare Officer Joseph Schmidt III properly ­obtained permission from his commanders for outside work and whether they condoned his acting career, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

“There are very clear regulations which govern outside ­employment ... as well as prohibitions on behaviour that is discrediting to the service,” said Captain Jason Salata, a Seals spokesman.

Schmidt, 42, has spent 23 years in the military and holds numerous medals, including a citation

of valour for combat overseas.

He has appeared in recruiting ­campaigns, even serving as the face of the Seal programme on its website, the Union-Tribune said.

He has appeared under the name Jay Voom in at least 29 sex films over seven years with titles such as Apple Smashing Lap Dance, the paper said. Many feature his wife, porn star Jewels Jade.

Schmidt declined to comment to the newspaper, but his wife said many of his fellow Seals watched the videos online.

“They knew about it at work,” Jade said. “He got called in and they said: ‘Look, keep it on the low, don’t mention the Seal name and blah, blah, blah.’”

Jade first appeared in porn films in 2001. She said she recruited her husband as an unpaid ­performer to cut the costs of ­making films for her website and film distribution service.
