April 25: Crissy Outlaw, 41, was earning over $15,000 (£11,703) a month in the adult film industry at the top of her six-year career, but left it all behind after believing she had a “sign from god,” telling her to quit the industry.

The star, who starred in over 50 films during her run in the industry and went on to earn $1000 a scene, entered the porn industry after a troubled childhood that saw her sexually abused by a neighbour.


Chrissy grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, and lived with her father after her parents divorced.

The 41-year-old said her father’s message about staying pure and not having sex before marriage left her “confused,” when a neighbour molested her.

Speaking to Aleteia, Crissy said: “I just remember feeling like people looked at me in a sexual way, older men especially.”

Crissy didn’t tell her father about the abuse as they already had a strained relationship, but moved in with her mother at 13.

At 17, she rebelled and lost her virginity, soon falling pregnant.

After being dumped in her third trimester by the man she planned to marry, Crissy felt forced to have an abortion.

She said to the Daily Mail: “My heart was shattered while the life was literally being sucked out of me.

“It was awful….my school knew about my abortion and I lost all my friends.

“That was one of the most traumatic things that happened.”

Feeling fragile from her “broken” relationships, Crissy said to the Daily Mail: “I fell to the ground and I said ‘God, if you’re real, I need you to tell me.

“I need a sign because everything I know about love isn’t right.

“And I need to feel you in my life because I haven’t felt you since I was 11 years old.’

“And I stayed on the floor.”

The next day she was impressed with a man she met on a film set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, while visiting her boyfriend.

The man, Chris, refused to look at a topless photo of a crew member’s wife that was being passed round.

After getting chatting to Chris and admitting that she was a porn star, Crissy found out that her boyfriend had already told everyone and shown nude pictures of her to the crew.

But while Crissy felt ashamed, Chris asked her, “Do you know Jesus?”

After her prayer the night before, Crissy said she took this question as a sign from God and the pair went on to pray together.

She said to the Daily Mail: “I started crying when he asked me if I wanted to rededicate my life,

“I said yes. [After that], I didn’t do any more shoots and stopped accepting any income from pornography.”

Crissy said she would tear up the cheques that would arrive and asked to have her website taken down – which wasn’t done as it was making too much money.

But Crissy went from five figures a month to suddenly not earning a penny.

She said people in the industry thought she had, “lost her mind.”

Since leaving the industry, Crissy has turned to therapy and church to help her come to terms with her life and married Lawton Outlaw, a youth pastor, soon after.

Speaking to The Kernal, she said of her former life: “ I don’t look online, I don’t Google anything, I don’t read any of the message boards, I cut that out from my life completely.”

Since her ordeal, Crissy now preaches in the hope that others won’t repeat her “mistakes,” and works with one of the biggest anti porn websites in the world.

Calling herself a “survivor,” Crissy said: “Women are getting lured in, sometimes for money, some are single moms or going to school, but they aren’t thinking about what happens down the road.

“If you think about what your life is going to be after, you wouldn’t make the choice to get into it.

“That’s what makes me a good fit for the job that I’m in.

“I’m a survivor.”
