FAQ's An Ex Porn Star Gets Asked: + My Answers. (Part 2)

Q: Was It Hard Being Sexually Pure While Waiting For Your Wedding Day?                       A: YES! But that is Not because of my past. Human beings were created to be intimate, but timing is everything. We are created to be intimate, but with our spouse. I am so attracted to my husband, so of course I wanted to be with him. However, honoring God was more important than a few moments of gratification. We also wanted to show others that as difficult as it is to be sexually pure, it IS possible with God. (to learn what we did to stay sexually pure, search for my blog titled, “Is It Possible To Stay Pure While Dating?”)

Q: Was Sexual Purity Worth The Wait?                                                                                           A: Definitely. You should try it! You won’t regret it. The blessings that come along with our obedience to God are UNREAL!

Q: Was It Hard To Stay Away From The Porn Industry Once You Left & Do You Ever Think About Going Back?                                                                                                                      A: You know, I left porn twice actually. The first time I left, I made several mistakes. I had too many open doors to the industry. I still had my old Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram Accounts open. I kept the same phone number, relationships etc. Which is why I had to leave a second time, because when times became financially difficult for me it was very easy for me to go back, and I did. I learned that it is hard to run to your future when you are still running with people from your past.      

The second time, I learned from my mistakes. I did not tell anyone I was leaving. I dropped off the face of the earth. I deleted all social media, I changed my number and deleted all my old contacts. This made it a lot easier for me stay strong when difficulties came my way. Sure, I could have looked up my old agent’s phone number, BUT I would have had to go knocking on the door to temptation as opposed to temptation knocking on my door. I definitely do not think about going back. Why would I? Life is way too good with Jesus! There is nothing that I miss about that business.... Well maybe except for getting my makeup professionally done everyday hahaha. It is such a pain getting my eyebrows even (I know many ladies can relate)  =( But obviously, I would never go back for that LOL.

Q: Is It Difficult For Your Husband To Deal With Your Past?                                                       A: No. But that is the grace of our God. Because when you find the person that God has ordained for your life, then he/she will be graced for your life.

Q: Do People Judge You?                                                                                                                   A: Yes. All the time. And the beautiful thing is that I almost always hear about it. God always sends a little bird my way to forewarn me. I hear things like, “She only gets the opportunities she gets because she is an ex porn star.” …. I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you with lies. My point is, as perfect as our amazing Jesus was while on this earth, people judged Him, ridiculed Him, and were extremely jealous of Him. So, me, being that I am SO far from perfect, should expect nothing less. Besides, I rejoice when people make up lies and gossip about me because I have a promise from God that says, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” – Matthew 5:10
