A church pastoress turned a stripper says her sex job has thought the valuable life skills that have prepared her better than ever to be a parent.
Nikole Mitchell, who grew up in a Baptist family in Ohio says she spent six adult years not even kissing a man because she was thought that Jesus was her boyfriend.
However, as Mitchell grows older, she started evaluating her sexuality and felt different. She then decided to go for a drastic career change by becoming a stripper.
After becoming a stripper, Mitchell now feels that she is giving her kids a far better start in life compared to the religious one she once had.
In an interview with Holly Randall Unfiltered podcast, Mitchell said that she and her children talk freely about sex, consent, bodies, and what’s right and wrong.
“[We have] all kinds of conversations and equipping them with tools that I was never equipped with as a kid growing up,” Mitchell 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 lifetime, 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,” she added.
Mitchell confessed that she “had a lot of fear” leaving religion, as she worried her children 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?” she said.
But when Mitchell saw other people who have been porn stars and have had kids and spoken to them about their life experiences, she felt she made the right decision.
“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 within the church,” Mitchell 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,” she added.
