June 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – He appeared in over 1,000 porn movies over a 23-year career. He received dozens of awards from the porn industry, making him, in his own words, the “most decorated male adult film star of all time.” And, in 2002, he reached the summit of the world of "adult" film when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame by AVN – the “Oscars of Porn.”

And then in 2011 he abruptly retired.

Now, Greg has come forward with his story, and to explain why he suddenly up and left the fame and fortune he had worked so hard to obtain.

In a heartbreaking new video by Fight the New Drug, Greg describes how he went to California in the 80’s to pursue an acting career, only to find himself out of work and flat broke when the Hollywood writers went on strike.

One day while on a modeling gig, a makeup artist handed him a card in case he ever wanted to do some “nude work.”

At first he resisted, knowing the effect this could have on his mainstream film career. But then, “After about a month of starving, I decided I was going to make that call. They said to be at this place at a certain time, so I jumped on my motorcycle the next morning and I went. And I made my first porno.”

“I walked out of there at the end of the day with four crisp brand new one hundred dollar bills,” he says. “I got on my motorcyle and I drove home. I was thinking how easy that was. But I also remember thinking, ‘What have I done?'”

What he had done was opened the proverbial can of worms, and started down a path that would see him become one of the most popular porn stars in history, make more money than he had ever dreamed of, develop a drug habit that ate up much of what he earned, and become more and more miserable.

“I had to go to work, to do the porn, so that I could buy the drugs, to bury the pain of doing the porn. So I’d go to work, and do the porn, so I could buy the drugs, to bury the pain. And around and around it went,” he says.

“What porn did to me, is it changed the way I thought, and felt about women. I began to look at them even more so as a sexual object. I lost the ability to have a loving and caring relationship. I thought I was still able. I was fooled.”

Greg describes the day that he finally left porn, saying he left the set of a shoot, drove a couple blocks, pulled over, and started sobbing. Since that day, he says, he has never gone back. "I changed my life," he says. "I began my life."

“You see,” he concludes. “If I can change my heart, anybody can.”
