It’s Been a Year Since I Blogged – Time to Break the Silence and Tell You . . There IS Life After Porn!!

As most of you know, we are still a party to a lawsuit against AIM, the now defunct and closed testing center for the Porn Industry. Due to this lawsuit, it has been better for me to remain quiet over the past year with the exception of a few scathing comments along the way lol. Now that AIM has shut down for good, they have filed bankruptcy and our lawsuit has become a creditor with an unknown claim. Discovery has not been completed so the suit, though the venue has changed, is still alive and well with a long ways to go to get to the finish line

With that said, I have remained silent for one year and that silence comes to an end as I write this update. I thought, for those of you who have remained my constant supporters, it was time for me to get back to writing and give you an update on our progress. It’s been a long and rocky journey, to say the least, but it has been victorious in so many ways, we have truly been blessed with good fortune!

We left the sex industries for good in June of 2009. We are approaching our 2 year anniversary back in the real world. It hasn’t been an easy journey as you have all have seen. While the lawsuit stopped many of our stalkers and bullies, a few hardcore attackers still remain today though deeply weakened in their affects on our lives. As you all saw last week, the first identity has been exposed so I now work to provide the necessary information to the proper authorities to go after Mike Stack for Cyberstalking, bullying, identity theft and Privacy violations. As our futures continue to unfold, there will be more brought to justice for what they did to me, my daughter and other women in the industry. Our victories will continue to mount as these criminals are finally brought to justice for the crimes they commit everyday in and around the porn industry!

As far as my daughter and I go, we are both doing wonderful. She has grown into the mature, intelligent and successful young woman I always knew she could be. She has found that she loves working in financial analysis and has become a master of reporting in Excel. She has turned into quite the computer nerd lol and just got a fantastic promotion and raise for all the magic numbers she manipulates. She is considering going to college for the fall semester this year to major in Finance. This is my number #1 victory. I have my daughter . . alive and well . . and succeeding in life again!!

AIM shutting down and performers being allowed to choose from multiple testing facilities, all of whom are medically accredited, is a major victory #2. Obviously, these victories are not just my own but the work of many dedicated and hardworking people and groups. Together we conquer, divided we fall. None of these issues would’ve gone anywhere without coming together and presenting a strong alliance against these offenses.

The victory of having every single recommendation I’ve made, with the exception of Hep C, that the Cal/OSHA committee had in their powers to oversee, included in the final recommendations that will go to the Standards Committee for finalization and implementation is my number #3 victory. The battle is not over by any means but it sure came a long way over the past year. I attended the meeting in Los Angeles this week and though it was tense with so many angry and misguided performers there, it was also one of the most fulfilling meetings I’ve attended. All that we have gone through has not been in vain. We have changed the porn industry, thus . . . We have CHANGED the WORLD for the better!!!

My main reason for writing again is to give you an update on our progress since that glorious day 2 years ago when we packed our rental car and left the sex industries forever. I had started to write about my journey back to the real world but was harassed by my stalkers to the point that it became healthier to just live. We both worked a few different low end jobs trying to get back to a normal lifestyle. Because the economy is so bad, quality jobs are tough to come for anyone looking so it took time to find a place worth staying at for a while. We also had to (and still have to) deal with employers who google prospective employees before even considering an interview. This is what the stalkers depended on to use their vile postings against us. It may have slowed us down but it sure didn’t stop us from succeeding

We both have had great jobs for a year now. I actually just left mine to move back into a management position and they actually have already hired me an assistant. How great is that?? I’ll be working with a couple of wonderful and highly motivated and innovative women in an industry that helps disadvantaged people. It’s a fantastic opportunity with a great group of people where I will manage their office, operations and various offsite locations. There is also alot of compliance and regulatory matters which you all know is my passion and background.

Pass it Forward Baby!! Life only gets better from here
