Porn, Possession, and Mental Illness

During the early-boom of adult films in the 1980s, Hyapatia Lee was a sensation and the first porn star of Native American ancestry. At the peak of her career she starred in top grossing films and was a popular pin-up fantasy girl featured in dozens of magazines, including the all-time best selling issue of Penthouse. But the fantasy was far from reality. Before she became a sex star, Hyapatia Lee was as an innocent girl named Vicki who endured years of emotional and sexual abuse. As a result, she developed multiple personalities and was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder. Th porn star Hyapatia Lee emerged as one of seven distinct personalities inhabiting the same body. “Vicki doesn't know what Hyapatia does and Hyapatia has no idea what Vicki does,” she states. “One time I made an appearance as Hyapatia Lee and then blacked out. When I woke up as Vicki, I had no recollection of what I had done or what happened. It was horrifying.”
According to Fr. Jose Antonio Fortea in his authoritative book Interview with an Exorcist, “Demons can tempt us, and they sometimes do so in a continuous way with great intensity. As such, a demon could provoke an obsession, phobia, depression, or another type of mental illness in a person. This can seriously disturb a person's ordinary life to the point of making him unbalanced.” Those who have been sexually abused as children are especially susceptible to demonic incursion. Speaking from my own experience, evil entered my life at a very young age when I first became exposed to pornography, ironically Hyapatia was one of my favorite porn stars as a kid. And during most of my time in porn, I suffered from severe mental problems that were continually misdiagnosed by well-meaning doctors. For years, I was loaded down with numerous prescription pills. Only when a priest performed a deliverance over me, was I freed from the last grasp of Satan’s clutches.

  1. You give no credit to the author you ripped this word for word from and you mixed in other quotes not attributed to Hypatia. In an interview she gave recently on Wordpress.com she states emphatically that she does not regret her time in the industry and that like most people in adult entertainment of any form she aged out. She also addresses rumor mongers. You just may want to check that out.
