She Was a Lesbian Porn Star Until She Claims a 'Vision' Shook Her to the Core — and Led Her to Evangelical Christianity

Once a lesbian porn star, Teresa Carey's transformation from purveyor of smut to devout evangelical Christian speaker is a story ripe to captivate and intrigue audiences.

Carey, 36, who is expecting her first child with husband Scott Carey, opened up in a recent interview with Barcroft TV about her religious conversion five years ago and the reasons she willingly left her porn past behind.

"The way I became a Christian is not kind of the usual way someone becomes a Christian," she said, highlighting her uncommon path toward biblical understanding.

Carey, who is from Great Britain, said that her journey into porn was a gradual one.

While she began as a portrait model, her career eventually transitioned to nudes; she has been featured in Penthouse, Hustler and Playboy, among other well-known magazines.

She later began doing porn, a career that spanned more than a decade — until something changed.

"I enjoyed doing what I was doing, because I was working with girls. Everything was friendly and good," she said, noting, though, that she eventually started feeling badly about her job. "It was more to do with me inside. It was a slow process of me, feeling it inside my own heart of, 'What am I doing?'"

Both Teresa and Scott Carey described a pivotal moment in their journey toward God. It involved a shared vision they say they had — a so-called "religious epiphany," during which they both claim to have come face-to-face with Jesus.

They said that the emotional experience lasted for about three or four minutes and that they came out of it with tears streaming down their faces.

"It shook us to the core," Teresa Carey said.

After that, they devoted their lives to God, with Carey — who slept with more than 100 women on camera between 1998 and 2009 — closing down her successful website in 2009 and leaving the porn industry for good.

"I was earning a lot of money for doing very little and I could have continued that for years," Carey explained, though she said that she knew that leaving it all behind was the right thing to do.
