When Crissy Moran announced her retirement from the adult industry in October 2006 via her MySpace page, her announcement was one that didn’t come as a shock to many people. Her shoots had all but slowed to a complete stop and she had completely stopped publicising her official site. What people weren’t expecting is for her to launch into a full-blooded condemnation of the entire industry and revealing herself to be a born-again Christian.
However, reading her profile on her page, one wonders why she ever got into the business in the first place. After a childhood and teen years filled with alleged abuse, depression and unfaithful boyfriends, that she stumbled into adult modelling was far more remarkable an occurrence than her ultimate decision to turn her back on porn and opt for a life of religious fulfilment.
A relative latecomer to the industry at the age of 24 when she did her first shoot for Hustler magazine, she quickly became one of the more popular adult models on the circuit. With a beguiling mixture of backgrounds creating her uniquely exotic yet notably European features (she is of Irish, English and Polynesian descent), she rose over the blonde blandness that dominated, and continues to dominate, the adult modelling scene.
Without ever signing a big money or high profile contract that many people believed she deserved, she did become widely sought after by lower level internet networks who felt they could sign a star that the biggest labels had missed. The Medium Pimpin network signed her up for her official site in 2004 and immediately saw an expansion of their profile as she turned her site into one of the better solo star sites in existence.
But as higher stardom continued to somehow elude her, she turned her hand increasingly to more hardcore content, with a particular leaning towards creampie videos. These videos, she claims, led to her requiring several abortions throughout her career. Some of her most staunch fans didn’t enjoy her turn towards more XXX-rated content, and her popularity started to decline despite a quick establishment of at least two unofficial sites that attempted to cash in on content she had shot before her exclusive web deal.
Since her retirement, she has fought what many regard as a fruitless battle to have all pornographic images of her removed from the internet. Bizarrely, in many people’s minds, she has bemoaned the fact that Medium Pimpin have refused to pay her a penny’s profit from her site since her retirement despite claiming she no longer wanted to make another penny from a career in the adult industry. The network still continues to publish unseen and exclusive content of her to this day, although this backlog is expected to run out in the autumn of this year.
Inevitably, her decision to bow out of the industry in the manner that she has chosen has been met with much derision and criticism from industry insiders and ardent followers of the business. Some of it may have been brought on herself by an anti-porn tirade, but as followers of the porn industry, we can at least be thankful that we ever got to see one of the more unique beauties that you may ever see in front of a camera at all. Maybe there is a God after all?
