NY Mom Crystal Bassette quits porn to become pastor
FROM PORN TO PASTOR: Crystal Bassette has ditched the adult industry to become a preacher

A New York Mom has gone from porn star to the pulpit after quitting lucrative career as a porn star to become a pastor in the small town of Fulton, New York.

According to the New York Post, Crystal Bassette, 33, who has featured in over 100 adult films and was earning over $400,000 a year from her sexploits decided to ditch the porn to become a pastor after finding God and marrying a fellow member of the cloth.

“It is definitely the ultimate change. It’s going from one extreme to the next. I had to get away from this whole life,” Bassette told Barcoft Media, referring to her 10-year stint doing porn.

Bassette fell pregnant at 16 and having done modelling and pole dancing, moved into the adult industry to pay the bills on a house in a safe neighbourhood in Hollywood where she raised her son.

She found the job appealing after an agent told her she could make $40,000 a month, and soon after, she did her first sex scene at a Malibu house.

“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,” she told Barcroft Media.

“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.”

She said: “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.”

“I just lived for myself and my son and didn’t really think about the consequences of making films and dancing and everything,” said Bassette, adding that she became “recognised everywhere.”

A turning point came for Bassette, a sexual abuse victim, in May 2014 after she got into a serious car crash and was charged with drink-driving.

She attended her sister’s church, where she met her future husband, David, the pastor.

“He’d known about my past for years because my sister was going to his church,” said Bassette, who married David, 26, in December 2014. They have a son together.

She said, “The day I was saved, I felt like the preacher was just speaking to me directly. It was like he was preaching to only me and you know that day I felt God was talking to me through his preaching and everything he said felt right.”

When Bassette left the porn industry, she went to college to become a legal assistant and trained as a pastor.

Soon after marrying David, the two founded their own church called New Beginnings Christian Life, where they hope to inspire others.

“I’m not worried about my outlook appearance. I’m not worried about money. Now I’m worried about helping people,” she said.

As for regrets, Bassette said she has none.

“My past made me who I am today and God has changed my life completely,” she said.
