A church pastor who has become a stripper says her new job has given her crucial life skills that have prepared her better than ever to be a parent.
Nikole Mitchell grew up in a baptist family in Ohio, US, and became even more religious in her 20s – spending six years not even kissing a man as "Jesus was my boyfriend".
But when she started evaluating her sexuality she decided to opt for a dramatic career change by becoming a stripper.
Having given it plenty of thought she now feels that she is giving her children a far better start in the life than the religious one she had.
She told the Holly Randall Unfiltered podcast that her and her children freely talk about sex, consent, bodies and what’s right and not.
“[We have] All kinds of conversations and equipping them with tools that i was never equipped with as a kid growing up,” she said.
“It is now so important to me now as a mum to teach my kids these things so they have these skills for a life time, for dating, relationships, for their working environment for who they become, whatever they end up doing these are life skills everyone needs.
"I would say my work has prepared me and helped me with that better than anything else in my life."
Nikole admitted she "had a lot of fear" leaving religion, as she worried her kids would "go mad" at her for missing out on the "community" of the church.
“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 who have been porn stars and have had children, and spoken to them about their experiences she felt it was the right move.
“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 with in 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."
