HANOVER, GERMANY: A pornstar has claimed that locals are "burning her out of town" after she shot a raunchy film inside her village church.

37-year-old Julia Winter sparked outrage last year when she starred in a 15-minute pornographic film with a male performer in her local church St Cosmas and Damian while it was reportedly preparing for a funeral. The adult actress said that her movie, which was shot 17 miles outside the historic northern city of Bremen, Germany, drew the ire of local residents who allegedly set fire to her shed among other acts of vengeance.

According to Daily Star, the 5-foot-9-inch blonde said she heard two loud bangs in the middle of the night. When she rushed outside, she saw a huge blaze consuming the shed that stands adjacent to the house she rents. "I would never have thought that people could be so full of hatred. I don’t know what to do – we didn’t do anything to anyone," she said.

According to Winter, this was just one of several forms of revenge the locals are perpetrating against her. She bemoaned that her landlord had already terminated her lease, saying he needed the house for "private use." Meanwhile, she is constantly insulted while walking around in her neighborhood in the relatively well-to-do municipality of Lunsen. The adult star said she was also inundated with hate mail through her letterbox. The sexually charged video shot last year prompted the local priest at the church to file charges against Winter. The local public prosecution office conducted an investigation and sent the actress a penalty order of €1,500 (~$1,626) for “disturbing the practice of religion” -- which is reportedly a breach of Section 167 of the German Criminal Code.

Winter, on the other hand, has argued she only filmed the movie so she could draw attention to the issue of child abuse at the church. According to her, the motivation behind the adult film was to denounce the church's apparent failure to adequately prosecute alleged child sex offenders. The pornstar was ordered to appear before the District Court of Achim after she refused to pay the fine. “I would love to pay the penalty,” she said, “just not to the church." She further argued that she could accept it if the court had ordered her to pay for any mess she may have made during the shoot, even offering to go clean it up personally. However, she was subsequently given an ultimatum to either pay the penalty or spend 50 days in prison. Winter has appealed that decision, per Daily Star.

MEAWW previously reported how a social media influencer and model was arrested after flashing her bottom outside a Russian cathedral. Ira Volkova, 30, was held in St Petersburg for reportedly exposing her bum outside St Isaac's Cathedral. The mother-of-one was seen posing outside the church, with her back turned to the camera. Her actions led to a criminal case in which she was accused of “humiliating and insulting the religious feelings of believers” by showing “naked body parts against the background” of the cathedral. This happened shortly after a couple was jailed for staging a risqué photoshoot near St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow.
