Pastor Turned Stripper says Sex Work has Made her a Better mum than her Church upbringing

A church pastor who has become a stripper says her new job has given her life skills that have made her a better parent.

But when she started evaluating her sexuality she decided to change her career from a pastor to  a stripper.
