Shelley Lynn Lubben
, born on the heels of revolution on May 18, 1968, is one of the world's leading advocates in the anti-pornography movement. A former pornographic actress who performed under the stage name of Roxy, she left the sex industry in 1994 when she caught Genital Herpes, a non-curable disease.
Upon her eight year recovery at the Champion's Centre in Tacoma, Washington, she reentered society as a new Champion woman and began teaching in prisons and rescue missions in Central California. Ordained as a Chaplain with the Order of Saint Martin, Shelley is also a graduate of Vision International University where she received a Bachelor's degree in Theological Studies. She is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Counseling and a Doctorate in Theology.
Shelley has authored the powerful book, "Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn", written over 200 articles and fact sheets, has served as President of Pink Cross Foundation since 2007 and is on the Board of Directors for International Institute for Cultural Renewal.
Shelley has made over 100 presentations to international and national professional organizations, churches and universities and hundreds of interviews and appearances on radio, TV and film. Shelley has starred in several documentaries to include, "Traffic Control", "Out of the Darkness" and "Exxxit: Life After Porn".
Shelley is known as an expert witness against the porn industry and has testified at California State Capitol for Assemblymembers Charles M. Calderon and Mary Salas on the porn tax bill as well as testified on the horrific work conditions in the porn industry before Los Angeles City Council, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and Congressional staff and more. Shelley is tenacious in exposing every illegal aspect of the porn industry.
Shelley has appeared on NIghtline, FOX News, ABC 15, KGET, KERO, MTV, Dr. Phil, 700 Club, Joni Show, Howard Stern, Current TV and various Christian and secular TV shows.
In 2007 Shelley and her husband Garrett founded Pink Cross Foundation, a nonprofit organization that offers hope, healing and support to adult industry workers around the world. Pink Cross also combats community deterioration due to pornography and prostitution through attempts to educate legislation about the illegally operating porn industry, to educate adult industry workers about sexually transmitted diseases and sex trafficking in porn, to ameliorate the secondary negative effects of pornography on the general public and to toughen laws to protect children from accessing online pornography.
For her tireless efforts, Shelley has gained world-wide respect among anti-porn activists and the American public. But Shelley's success has come at a price. She and her family have faced death threats and extreme harassment and stalking by pornographers. Asked why she continues to fight in the face of such fierce and frightening opposition, Shelley boldly responds, "Pornography is rapidly destroying human lives all over the world. How can I not fight?"
Shelley Lubben is sought worldwide to speak, educate, testify, and counsel individuals, organizations, professionals and governments regarding the illegally operating porn industry, pornography addiction, recovery from sexual abuse and the sex industry and the Champion life. Shelley is a mother of three beautiful daughters and married to Mr. Wonderful, Garrett Lubben, for seventeen years.
