From Pole To Pulpit: Pornstar Turns Pastor
Crystal Bassette had the opportunity to make $30,000 a month, which translates to 13,650,000 Naira as a pornstar.
But she has given up all that for the Christ's sake.
The 33-year-old mother spent 10 years in the porn industry before turning her life around after meeting and marrying a pastor.
After she got pregnant at the age of 16, she took to acting in pornographic films to take care of herself and her baby.
A porn agent had assured her that she had the potential to make $30,000 a month.
Crystal Bassette from Clay, New York, attended her first scene at a house in Malibu, California. But it wasn’t an easy experience, not in the slightest.
She said: “I remember after the scene, I sat in the shower for about two hours crying. Then I stopped after that shoot and didn’t go back for about one month.
“I ended up going back to it again and that’s when I was numbing myself through taking pain medicine and drinking alcohol to get through the scene.
“It just became like this daily routine for me where I would drop my son off to school in the morning, go do a shoot and come home. It was like a regular 9 to 5 job.”
Crystal’s addiction to alcohol and both earning and spending large amounts of money became a vicious cycle – one that she says sucked her up until she ultimately lost herself in the haze.
Eventually, she turned to the Bible for help.
