It’s a community-based religion. You walk into a temple and you’re greeted with the utmost respect… But, just like any religion it doesn’t want you to shoot
adult material. I mean, I grew up going to temple every Sunday. When my parents found out they knew my personality which was very independent. Even if
they tried to stop me or tried to steer me the right way they would have lost their daughter. I’m too headstrong. And it wasn’t a plan. It just happened and my
career and everything just kept getting bigger and bigger.
