Tamra Toryn Out of Porn!

Ex Porn Star Tamra Toryn

I am VERY excited to announce that another porn star has left porn! Tamra contacted me through Myspace and we immediately connected. She wanted to come out with her story to help educate young girls before they get into porn and suffer major consequences. She also wants those viewing porn to know the truth so they will stop buying into the lie and contributing to women being abused in the industry. She is very outspoken and tells it like it is in an interview with her and I. Talk about two outspoken ex porn stars! Click here to listen to an audio of us talking boldly about the truth behind the porn industry and more!

She boldly writes on her myspace blog:

"Unlike most girls that start their porn careers doing just masturbation, oral or girl/ girl, I went straight for hardcore because I was quote unquote "hardcore" . Attitude check anyone?  My scene was shot Gonzo (reality/amateur style) boy/girl, anal, ATM (ass to mouth)- pay $1000. Expenses and flight all paid. Sounded like a dream come true.

I arrive and a man with a sign awaits me in the baggage claim area with an Escalade limo to pick me up. We stop at Denny's to eat and meet with the director. After we meet, he takes me outside to give me a once over look of approval, we finish eating, and drive to the studio.

Nothing prepared me other than a boot camp workout, my xanax prescription for my anxiety disorder since I was nervous as heck, and a low carb diet for a month to dig up the courage to take my clothes off to do things I never thought I would share on film for the world to see. Tons of people walking around, food provided, etc etc. No STD tests were given or shown since the director assured me that since they were using condoms, I wouldn't have to worry. (Yeah right)

2 hours later, naked, medicated, sore, and wet from jumping off a boat to end the scene like they pushed me off the boat like a useless stupid whore, I received $1000 for my "hard work", praised of a "great job" I did and driven to my friend's house (since I didn't want to stay at the production's beach house with weird people on drugs I didn't know) and extended my stay to celebrate my new life as a "porn star".

This is where real life ended and the delusion of temporary existence began."

You can read the rest of her amazing story at www.myspace.com/miss_Tammie_B Her profile is set to private but if you request to be her friend and mention Pink Cross she will approve you. Please be sure to leave her encouraging comments. She says many myspace friends already reached out to her and it REALLY touched her.

Tamra entered the porn industry at age 26 in 2005 and was involved in making very hardcore movies. After being tired of the abuse and catching HPV, a sexually transmitted disease, she left the porn industry in February, 2008 and now works at a tanning salon in Hollywood. Her dream is to go to Cosmetology school so we are going to do our best to help her make that dream come true. Right now she has a need for new clothes so we want to help her with immediate needs first.

If you have a heart to help Tamra rebuild her life, please donate below. We appreciate everyone who cares about these precious women who are trying to rebuild their lives. It's NOT an easy time for Tamra so we thank you for caring. She struggles with many consequences of porn and Pink Cross Foundation wants to be there for her.

 Check back for an updated blog about our meeting on Monday. I am driving down to Hollywood to take her out to lunch and shopping for new clothes. I can't wait to spend time with her!

Thank you sincerely for caring about precious women like Tamra. We couldn't do it with your help!

Love, Shelley Lubben

UPDATE: Tamra and I went shopping in Los Angeles and had a blast! I was able to buy her a couple really nice outfits and a few other things thanks to those of you who donated. I am so thankful you cared about Tamra and she says a HUGE thank you to all of you!

She can't believe how many people care, especially all the people on myspace encouraging her and loving her. She is so thankful for all of your love and support.

Our day together was filled with talking, shopping, laughing, and sharing our stories with each other. My heart broke for some of the things she has been through that she hasn't even mentioned yet. Obviously the girls who just come out of porn need time to sort things out and aren't ready to disclose every trauma they have been through. But I am really proud of her being so strong this soon!

Tamra is very outgoing and friendly and is surprisingly very optimistic about herself and her future. She loves to encourage and counsel so I told her she should think about going to get a counseling degree. She is such a beautiful encourager with a great attitude. I was really surprised. I don't think she said one negative thing the whole time! For someone who just left porn in February and has been through some major tough times, she is definitely on her way to a very bright future!

Below are more pics of us shopping so again we thank you for supporting Pink Cross so we can continue to reach out to precious women like Tamra!

Please consider helping us to finance Tamra to come and join us at the Las Vegas AVN convention in January as we really would love to have her help us reach out to porn stars and porn fans. We will need about $500 to pay for her flight out as well as her meals and hotel costs.

Thanks for caring!

Shelley and Tamra shopping!

Tamra loves her new clothes!

Comments

I just listened to the audio of you and Shelley...

...and I just want you to know that right now, I am praying for you to have a mended relationship with your family, specifically your uncle. I know there is healing and restoration in the Lord. I am living proof of that.

Last week, Sunday to be exact, my children and I moved back in with my husband of 6.5 years after having been seperated for a year. I have prayed this year for a miracle (see my screen name?? :) ) that ONLY GOD could bring. I asked for open eyes on my husbands part and a soft, inviting heart on my part. In October, early November of 2008, my heart was broken for my husband. It took until December for me to tell him and another month for me to get my ducks in a row to bring our family back together but here we are! God is faithful and he DOES hear your prayers. Stay strong and lean on Him, girl! He is POWERFUL!

I am so proud of your ability to leave behind the dark life you had for a moment of time in your life. You have your whole life ahead of you and you're doing it with God! Put on your seatbelt because from now on, it's going to be an amazingly wild ride! :)

In Christ,
Andrea
