It’s a fact everyone knows. Porn stars are stupid, airheaded, and irresponsible. Porn stars are desperate, selling their bodies only because they need to support their scumbag boyfriend, or kid, or drug habit, and fucking on camera pays more than a job at McDonald’s. These are the only jobs they have the intellect to do. The few exceptions to these rules must have been molested as children.

It just doesn’t make sense, then, that Belle Knox, an upper-middle-class college student and porn star, exists. And that’s what this is all about, isn’t it? That’s why she’s become a tabloid sensation. Everyone wants to gawk at the anomaly.

Except she’s not the only one.

Casey Calvert: Porn Stars R Stupid

I am also an adult performer, and also college educated. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Florida with a degree in Film Production. That makes two of us, but there are many more.

On April 9th, I conducted a very informal Twitter survey asking for names of girls who are either still in college or have graduated from a university. I came up with 39 women who are actively performing; 27 with diplomas and 12 still in school. I also got the names of three female directors, all with degrees.

And yet, Belle Knox has become the de facto voice for my industry. The media has been captivated in their communal cognitive dissonance — that a smart young woman would choose to do porn. And in their efforts to make sense of the situation, they’ve given her a voice. And yet, there are women on my list who have been in the business for years, not months.

As usual, Casey kicks butt. And she’s quite right about the concentration of intelligence among performers. I’ve worked at many other jobs over the years and I agree that the distribution of brain-power is uneven in all of them but generally higher-wattage than average among entertainers of all sorts. And I couldn’t agree more that using “would you do it for free?” as a litmus test is totally bogus. Nobody asks that question of coal miners. Why is it so relevant to any kind of sex work? But then there are those who have a real need to feel smarter… Read more »

[…] Casey Calvert, a rising star in adult films, graduated academically and sexually during her time at UF. The Gainesville native thought pornography was illegal until she took Calvert’s class on mass media law as a sophomore, where she learned that the industry was legitimate and thriving. […]

There’s a difference between being institutionally (textbook) smart and sensibly intelligent. You can go to college all you want- it does not necessarily make you any smarter. The ultimate intelligence is awareness. Using the facts and concepts you learned in college to become more aware of yourself and the world you live in. Pornstars may call themselves smart, but unless you have an awareness of just how pornography has destroyed countless lives in and outside the industry, then you are not smart. A truely smart person wouldn’t contribute to the bullshit of porn- they would realize it’s a waste of… Read more »
