In 2006, Crissy Outlaw left the porn industry. Now, she helps other women do the same. Crissy speaks out about the harmful effects of pornography. Her story has been featured on platforms, such as, ABC’s Nightline, GQ Magazine, The Huffington Post, CBN, Playboy, and Christianity Today. Recently I had the chance to sit down with Crissy on my new podcast program, The Lucas Miles Show, and discuss the dangers of the porn industry, her journey out of adult entertainment, and how she found Jesus on a film set in LA. (Listen to audio interview here.)
Here are a few things I learned during the interview:
1.) Stats suggest over 80% of women involved in porn were previously sexually abused. (In Crissy’s experience helping minister to girls post-porn, she says it’s much higher than that.)
2.) It’s virtually impossible to leave porn. As we discussed in depth in the interview, Crissy exited porn years ago and is still unable to remove her likeness or image from the internet. Guarded by bulky and confusing legal agreements, website owners have refused to honor her decision to leave behind her life in adult entertainment and continue to make money off of her to this day.
3.) Sex Trafficking is defined by involving “coercion” or forcing someone to compromise their own interests. According to Crissy, coercion is always present in porn and provides a gateway to more insidious forms of sex trafficking.
4.) There is hope after porn. I was so impressed by Crissy’s journey back to Jesus, her love that motivates her to help reach other girls like her, and the way in which God’s grace has brought restoration into her life.
