What do a pastor and a sex worker have in common? More than you think, according to this OnlyFans model who “blesses” her fans with her sexuality.
People feel religion and their connection to god in many different ways, and for this former pastor, OnlyFans is her church.
Nikole Mitchell, 36, came from a Baptist family that taught her stereotypical gender roles: that a woman’s job within a family was, strictly, to be a mother to her children and an obedient wife to her husband.
Growing up, however, Mitchell felt that her connection to god yearned for something more and, gaining a passion for entertaining, she decided to become a pastor.
While Mitchell’s role as a pastor gave her creative room to perform, her career came at a crossroads when she attended an LGBT+ theatre night. Through her early life, the idea that she could be anything other than straight was certainly not on the agenda.
However, that performance moved something inside of her, she told The New York Post, “I was like ‘Oh my gosh, I don’t think I’m straight’ and it rocked my world.” As Mitchell struggled to keep her sexuality a secret, knowing that the church would be in full opposition to her identity, she decided to deliver her last sermon in 2017 before never showing up again.
Nikole Mitchell went from a Pastor to Stripper, nothing God cannot do.

Later, she publicly came out as bisexual in a confessional YouTube video. Hiring a life coach, she looked to take her life in a new direction. “I started following my life coach’s wife who was doing lingerie modelling. I was kind of triggered by it… but I was also magnetically drawn to it,” she recalled.
Keen to explore her own sexuality further, she signed up to a class called Sexpress You, that later gave her the confidence to do her first nude photoshoot. She said, “It was all about expressing your sexy self and that was the linchpin that I needed. I cried because I had never felt more holy and sacred in my life.”
Now, the former pastor-turned-erotic model has launched her own OnlyFans account, where she expresses her holy connection to god through explicit photos and videos.

“I started off really timid like just topless photos, but now I’m at the point where I take personal requests and make videos very tailored to people’s specific desires,” she said. “I’m to the point where back in March I was actually going to be paid several thousand dollars to have sex with someone, and I was A-OK with that, but then COVID hit and that got cancelled.”
Along with her career on OnlyFans, she works as a life coach herself, teaching courses on how to be okay with being your true self. And when it comes to how she believes her work is benefiting her connection to religion, she says, “my sexuality is incredibly healing and sacred. And when I give this gift to people, it blesses them.”
Well, it seems a pastor and a sex worker have more in common than they would care to admit.
