Ex-Porn Star, Crissy Moran, Talks About How She Left the Sex Industry for Christianity

RealCrissy Moran Facebook

Mark Stricherz - published on 02/13/15




During this sabbatical, Crissy met a man through a mutual friend. He lived in Texas. But the two talked on the phone and became friends. By May 2012, they became husband and wife.

When she was a girl, Crissy dreamt of having a family. "I had always a goal in life not of being a doctor or a lawyer but to be a wife and mom." The first part has come true; the second has not. For years while she was in the industry, Crissy had little desire to become a mother.

Now the desire has returned. But Crissy is not wedded to an outcome. At 39, she realizes there are risks and practical difficulties to giving birth. Whether she and her husband conceive a child or adopt, she will be at peace. "Having a child is something I’m praying for, but if it doesn’t happen…," she said, her voice trailing off. "My desire has been to be close to Him."
