Retired pastor Norm Self spent most of his life serving his Christian faith in the church, but in his 80s he decided it was time to call it quits.

Earlier in life, he had been married to a woman for nearly 30 années, but eventually realized he was gay.

It took him another 20 years to come out publicly and express his sexuality through adult films.

He made his movie debut in 2017, selon un 2019 documentary on Channel 5.

“It’s almost like having a party, that’s one of the things I admire about this way of doing porn,” Self told the station.

From his perspective, sex should be freeing.

“We are going to have sex anyway so why not make it a liberating and bonding experience instead of hiding it away in the shadows?” il a dit.

Jusqu'à présent, he’s done his on camera work free of charge.

Self has said he plans to keep starring in erotic films until society removes “sex-negative norms” from its vocabulary.

He would like the negative views to be replaced with a message that says people have the right to enjoy “erotic joy.”

“We who have experienced that owe it to our sisters and brothers to share that good news with all who will hear it!” he said in the Huffington Post interview.
