    Unfortunately that’s the nature of the internet and electronic age we live in.

    Nothing of your past is secret anymore. Like in the example above a student found a teacher’s past through some simple internet searches.

    It’s bad enough what one did decades ago is liable to be found, people who do porn nowadays will never rid themselves of that ‘stigma.’ Unless they get some radical plastic surgery and identification ‘scrub’ I suppose.

    Kind of sad in a way.

    none of my teachers were sexy enough to be porn stars..although my 8th grade algebra teacher was a New Orleans Saints cheerleader..i passed her class with a 95…i don’t remember anything about algebra..lol….but good for these people who see there’s more to lfe than what they were doing..i question the one guy on the list having done one movie and be considered a porn “star”…more like a featured male…but his resume doesn’t stack up, no pun intended, to the ladies on this list.

    No way a list such as this exists without Erica Rose Campbell on it. And probably top-3.

      Erica was a glamor model not a porn star, so for this list she didn’t qualify…good for her.

        What about Julia Chanel (back in the 90’s she was very popular in adult movies nowadays trying to raise a singer carreer) and Christine Young (also popular in the 90’s now hidding somewhere in Africa helping the poor children)?

    If you check the Internet Adult Film Database (iafd), look at porn star Channone. If that’s not Pastor Scott, then she’s got a doppleganger some place…

    In regard to No. 9, I would trust and respect a pornstar over a televangelist any day of the week.

    The first one at the very top was a surprise to me. I see her on tv regularly teaching the Word here in Florida.

    Jessica Bennett (Asia Carrera) was described here as “one of the biggest porn stars in the business”. With that in mind, I firmly that it will take an extremely long time for her to gain the anonymity she desires. Also, in this day and age of free flowing information, isn’t it safe to say that it would only be a matter of time before her children learn the truth about her past?

      Especially if they ever google their mother’s real name and find an article titled, “Top 10 Reformed Porn Stars.”

        I think any long-term anonymity is virtually impossible under any circumstances – Google mom’s name will lead them to Wikipedia before they come here. Hopefully memories will fade by the time her kids reach inquisitive teen status, however I doubt it, and that’s the harsh lesson of Tara Myers.

    well this article seems very fair, unbiased and neutral in tone….

    HAHAHA are you kidding me! Karl youve got to do a bit more research mate. Shelly lubben was a drug addicted prostitute for five years before she got into the porn industry. Which by the way, she was only in for around 6 months. She has also been proven to be a (massive) liar and is suspected of skimming huge amounts off the top of her so called charity.

      I agree. I’ve read enough about her to know her stories don’t add up. She’s also been caught on tape recently drunk & acting a fool.

    Dazza-
    What an insightful comment mate.

    To quote you – “she has been proven to be a (massive) liar” – I made no reference to her credibility, though I suspect yours a great deal.

    “…she is suspected of skimming huge amounts off the top of her so called charity.” – again by you I presume.

    Glad this piece piqued your interest, but frankly, people like you make me feel like vomiting – though I don’t think you’re worth the effort.

    Final quote for you, “HAHAHA”

    I agree with shyarra, you forgot to mention Sylvester Stallone, probably the most notable.

    I have to agree with you – Sly was a glaring omission – The Italian Stallion as I recall – pre-First Blood days – I guess I’ve been called out ;)

    Tracy Lords is a notable omission too.

    Dude, this article is rubbish. Jessica Bennette aka Asia Carrera did not “run away” at 17, she won a full academic scholarship to Rutgers University, where she double-majored in Business and Japanese. Great job fact checking guys.

    From Ms Bennette’s FAQ section of her website – smart she may be, but I do my fact-checking [seriously].

    Otherwise, nice comment Paul….apart from your fact-checking of course :)

    Wot ? No Sasha Grey ?

    Sasha left the industry last May and this was originally posted in March – she wasn’t reformed at the time of writing, but good to see her in the mainstream and constructive.

    a bunch of porn film retiree’s, whose new careers made there past undesirable.

    All i see are a list of hypocrites.
    One should never do something one is not proud of,
    nor should anyone be ashamed of what they did to survive.

    Good list, Karl. I see you skipped the famous cases that we’d all know anyway, but I have to ask if you considered Charlotte Rampling or Traci Lords for this list. Both crossed over to mainstream movies, and I suspect a lot of young people seeing their movies today have no idea of their past or how much furor it caused when they first appeared in non-porn films.

    I see a lot of people are presenting alternate histories for some of the people you mentioned. I hope these people are checking their own facts very carefully. I was recently called a liar for saying a certain male country singer grew up wealthy in Louisiana. My opponent’s source was the singer’s own comments on an album cover. My source was the woman who grew up just down the street from where the singer lived as a child.

    I would not call Janine reformed. She still is involved in the industry, has been in & out of trouble & married a felon.
