Duke freshman speaks out about porn career

March 6, 2014 at 4:03 PM

DURHAM, N.C., March 6 (UPI) -- A freshman at North Carolina's Duke University who went public with her career as a porn actress said the job is "something I absolutely love."

The student, who identified herself to the campus newspaper and online magazine xoJane as "Lauren," said she started doing pornography as a way to raise funds for her education, the Raleigh (N.C.) News & Observer reported Thursday.

"I couldn't afford $60,000 in tuition, my family has undergone significant financial burden, and I saw a way to graduate from my dream school free of debt, doing something I absolutely love. Because to be clear: My experience in porn has been nothing but supportive, exciting, thrilling and empowering," Lauren said.

The student began giving interviews about her porn work after her identity was outed by another student on Twitter. She said there was a significant boost in attention for her Twitter feed during winter break.

Lauren said she identifies as a feminist and her political views lean libertarian. She said she hopes to one day be a human rights lawyer.
