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 porn industry in 1994 when she caught Genital Herpes, a non-curable disease and HPV, human papillomavirus which led to cervical cancer where she had half of her cervix removed.
Upon her eight year recovery at the Champion’s Centre in Tacoma, Washington, she reentered society as a new Champion woman and began reaching out to women 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 recently finished her Masters in Christian Counseling and her Doctorate in Theology.
Shelley has authored the powerful book, “Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn”, where she gives a detailed candid account of the porn slave trade. Shelley has 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 told her amazing story and the truth about porn to hundreds of international and national professional organizations, churches and universities, including numerous interviews and appearances on radio, TV and film. Shelley has been featured in several documentaries to include, “10 Seconds”, “Traffic Control”, “Out of the Darkness” and “After Porn Ends ”
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, Dr. Drew Show, MTV, ABC 15, KGET, KERO, 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 women trapped in porn and sex work. 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, 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 monumental price. She and her family have faced death threats, legal threats and extreme harassment online by pornographers and pro-porn advocates. Asked why she continues to fight in the face of such fierce opposition, Shelley boldly responds, "Pornography is destroying the entire world. How can I not fight against a plague that is taking out millions of people?"
Shelley Lubben is sought worldwide to speak, educate, testify, and counsel individuals, organizations, churches, professionals and governments regarding the illegally operating porn industry, sex trafficking, pornography addiction, recovery from sexual abuse and the sex industry and how to live the Champion Life through the power of Jesus Christ. Shelley is a mother of three beautiful daughters and married to Mr. Wonderful, Garrett Lubben, for eighteen years.

So enormous, so dreadful, so irremediable did the Trade's wickedness appear that my own mind was completely made up for Abolition. Let the consequences be what they would, I from this time determined that I would never rest until I had effected its abolition. - William Wilberforce
