A church pastor who has become a stripper says her new job has given her the life skills that have made her a better parent.
Nikole Mitchell, born and bred in a baptist family in Ohio, US, became very religious in her 20s – spending six years not even kissing a man as she said “Jesus was my boyfriend”.
“Are they going to feel ashamed of me, are they going to be mad at me for embarrassing them with the internet content, all the fears that you can think of, I have thought about them a million times more than any other person?”
But having seen other people be porn stars and have children, she spoke with the pornstars and from it was the right move for her
“Now I am where I am, I feel that not only my sense of sexuality but the sex work I do is so much healthier than this sex mindset that I grew up within the church,” she said.
“So I think that the most toxicity you can have about sexuality, sex, bodies, can come from the kind of church that I came from and I remember looking at the big picture and thinking I’m giving my kids a much better gift.”
Now the former pastor earns around £70,000.
