Ex-Online Porn Developer

Highlighting those whose faith in Jesus has turned their life around, here’s Michele Washam, owner of one of the first “ladies only” adult web sites, now a Christian outreach ministry to women in relationship troubles.

A former developer of a pornographic Web site now ministers through the Internet to people who have been hurt through broken relationships. In 1995, Michele Washam lived in Delaware and designed what may have been one of the first “ladies only” adult pornographic websites, Just4Ladies.com, Baptist Press (BP) reported.
