Why I Quit Nun To Become A Porn Star After 8 Years At Convent - Yudi Pineda

A Colombian woman quit her religious ambition to become a professional porn star after spending close to decade in a convent learning how to be a nun. Yudi Pineda, on quitting, went into making adult movies.

Speaking to local press, Yudi explained how she was at first drawn to the church at a younger age.

“I went to Uraba and I was at school when nuns came to visit us, and I knew then that I wanted to do that.” So, at the age of 10, she joined a convent and spent the next 8 years in training as a nun.

She says she was initially very happy there, but as she got older she ‘fell in love’ with her religious teacher, and had to quit the convent and find a job elsewhere.

Yudi found employment in Medellín, working for Nestlé. However, her meeting with Juan Bustos, a recruiter for adult webcam models, made her to think of this new career in adult videos.

She went along to a casting call and was hired instantly. She remarked, “At first I was feeling bad, but now I am fine with it. I also feel good when I go to church. I never miss Friday prayers, Saturday meetings or Sunday mass.”

Beijing Slams US-Japan-Philippines Summit, Says S. China Sea Actions ‘Lawful’

Published

on

Beijing on Friday criticised the United States, Japan and the Philippines and defended its actions in the South China Sea as “lawful” after US President Joe Biden hosted a trilateral meeting in Washington.

Biden on Thursday pledged to defend the Philippines from any attack in the South China Sea at the White House summit, which came amid repeated confrontations between Chinese and Philippine vessels in the disputed waterway that have raised fears of wider conflict.

A joint statement issued by the leaders of the trio of nations voiced “serious concern” over Beijing’s actions in the South China Sea, slamming its behaviour as “dangerous and aggressive”.

Beijing claims almost the entirety of the South China Sea, brushing aside competing claims from several Southeast Asian nations including the Philippines.

On Friday China hit out at the joint summit in Washington, with foreign ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning saying Beijing “firmly opposes the relevant countries manipulating bloc politics, and firmly opposes any behaviour that provokes or lays plans for opposition, and hurts other countries’ strategic security and interests”.

“We firmly oppose engaging in closed cliques that exclude others in the region,” Mao told a regular press conference.

“Japan and the Philippines can of course develop normal relations with other countries, but they should not invite factional opposition into the region, much less engage in trilateral cooperation at the cost of hurting another country’s interests.

“If these are not wanton smears and attacks on China, what are they?” she said.

“China’s actions in the East China Sea and South China Sea are appropriate and lawful, and beyond reproach,” Mao added.

‘Ironclad’
On Thursday Biden told Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos Jr and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida that the United States’ defence commitments to Japan and to the Philippines are “ironclad”.

As they met around a horseshoe-shaped wooden table in the grand East Room of the US presidential residence, the US, Japanese and Philippine leaders hailed the meeting as “historic.”

Without mentioning China by name, they painted their alliance as a bedrock of peace and democracy in the Asia-Pacific region in contrast to authoritarian Beijing.

Marcos, seen as closer to Washington than his more China-leaning predecessor Rodrigo Duterte, said they shared an “unwavering commitment to the rules-based international order.”

Kishida said that “multi-layered cooperation is essential” and that “today’s meeting will make history.”

Biden, 81, also held separate talks with Marcos, 66, the son and namesake of the country’s former dictator.

‘Purely defensive’
The joint summit came a day after Biden hosted a lavish state visit for Japan’s Kishida during which he unveiled a historic upgrade in defence ties aimed at countering a resurgent China.

Kishida gave a joint address to Congress in which he urged Americans to overcome “self-doubt” about their role as a global power.

This time directly warning of risks from the rise of China, Kishida said that Japan — stripped of its right to a military after World War II — was determined to do more to share responsibility with its ally the United States.

The United States, Japan and the Philippines are expected to announce new joint naval exercises along with Australia, similar to drills they had in the region at the weekend, officials said.

They are also set to unveil new economic cooperation measures.

The United States has a mutual defence pact with Manila but there are fears it could be put to the test, with tensions becoming particularly acute around the Second Thomas Shoal, a remote reef in the Spratly Islands.

Japan and the Philippines are the latest Asia-Pacific allies to be hosted by Biden, who was joined by Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol at Camp David in August.

But Biden has also moved to manage tensions with China, holding a two-hour phone call with President Xi Jinping last week following a face-to-face meeting in San Francisco in November.

On Wednesday Biden said the major upgrade in defence ties with Japan was “purely defensive” and “not aimed at any one nation or a threat to the region.”

Gaza: Hamas Leader Vows Retaliation After Israel Airstrike Kill Three Of His Sons

Published

on

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh has confirmed three of his sons were killed Wednesday in an Israeli airstrike in the Gaza Strip.

Haniyeh accused Israel of acting in “the spirit of revenge and murder.”

The Hamas leader confirmed the deaths Wednesday in an interview with the Al Jazeera satellite channel, saying his sons “were martyred on the road to liberating Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

However, there was no immediate comment from the Israeli army.

“The criminal enemy is driven by the spirit of revenge and murder and does not value any standards or laws,” Haniyeh said in the phone interview.

He lives in exile in Qatar, where Al Jazeera is based.

According to him, the killings would not pressure Hamas into softening its positions, even as the two sides have been involved in months of cease-fire talks.

“The enemy believes that by targeting the families of the leaders, it will push them to give up the demands of our people,” he said. “Anyone who believes that targeting my sons will push Hamas to change its position is delusional.”

Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV station stated that Hazem, Ameer and Mohammed Haniyeh were killed with family members in the strike near the Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.

The report said the brothers were travelling with family members in a single vehicle targeted by an Israeli drone, Al-Aqsa TV said, adding that a total of six people were killed, including a daughter of Hazem Haniyeh, and a son and daughter of Ameer.

The strike comes when international mediators have been trying to broker a new cease-fire agreement. It was not yet known what effect the strike would have on those talks.
