Crystal Bassette featured in over 100 adult films and was earning around over $300,000 a year from her sexploits.

But after a decade in the industry, the New Yorker has ditched the porn to become a pastor after finding God and marrying a fellow member of the cloth.

The 33-year-old 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 was told she could earn $30,000 (£25,000) a month in porn and turned to alcohol to get through the shoots.

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.”

While buying things most people would love – sports cars, a nightclub and a mansion – Crystal says she was sucked in by a materialistic lifestyle and “lost herself”.

She said: “My mind was so messed up and after reading the Bible I know that I was haunted by a spirit of Jezebel.

“I just lived for myself and my son and didn’t really think about the consequences of making films and dancing and everything.

“I started to become an object. I wouldn’t walk outside my house without showing cleavage, having a belly shirt on and high heels. It was like had to constantly look like the sex symbol.”

Shortly before meeting her future husband David – a pastor – Crystal decided to shun the porn world and devote her life to God instead.

She said: “He’d known about my past for years because my sister was going to his church. David is the kind of guy that thinks your past is your past. You can’t keep looking back at it. It’s done with.

“It is definitely the ultimate change. It’s going from one extreme to the next. I had to get away from this whole life.”

The couple married in December 2014, and they were soon joined by their son Carter, who was welcomed by older brothers 16-year-old Justin and seven-year-old Landon.

David, 26, said: “What I would like people to take away from us is that God can forgive you no matter what past you come from.”
