Claiming grand sexual conduct is 'empowerment' = the fall back excuse for educated people who are in denial.

'Sexual empowerment' = 'Shame spiral'

Who feels the shame, the woman who is paid or the men who pay?

To some extent I think (or hope - I recognize at least some Duke students do not always think clearly) she is taking some arguments out for a spin to see what sort of return fire (not to mention publicity) she draws

As we all know, being a porn performer is not the only way to fund your tuition - you can deal drugs

But no surprise Fox takes the bait

Did Duke porn star really need money for college?

“Students are taking to complete strangers asking for crowd-funding. You also have the option of a two-year community college for your first two years you take the basic classes that every college requires, and you get it at 50 percent off, and then you go to the school you want to get your degree from then you’re only paying for two years,” said Vasel.

And consider the possibility she is riding the publicity wave now that she has been outed

“She should ride the media attention all the way to Oprah if she can.”

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...y-for-college/

Women's studies major "Belle" was on CNN with Piers Morgan recently



I bet she gets 60 Minutes or other TV gigs out of this

Disney must be so proud

Belle's name means beauty, but she often stands out in town because she loves to read. She dreams of adventure in the great wide somewhere and believes there is good in everyone, even the Beast.

i'm stilling trying to distinguish the legal justification between porn and prostitution.
it's every bit as hypocritical as the alcohol VS marijuana debate , which my theory has always been about regulation for tax collection. we all know that if uncle sam can't be assured to get his piece of the pie , then pie will be illegal.

Both.

The man loses less on the whole transaction though.

The distinction is based on First Amendment/Fourteenth Amendment protections for porn that do not apply to prostitution - you are part of a performance involving protected speech as a porn star as opposed to just selling sex as a hooker - that is not clearly established law everywhere but it is the law in California, which is where "Belle" practices her craft

http://www.dmlp.org/blog/2008/nh-sup...t-prostitution

Of course you can turn tricks in Nevada where prostitution is legal - a compelling reason for the GOP to accept the Vegas bid for the 2016 convention

Jeremy Lemur, a spokesman for a brothel in Pahrump, Nevada - yes, that's the name of the place - said in a blog post this week that legalized prostitution in this state is all the more reason for politicians to meet there. Brothel employees are medically certified and unlikely to tweet about the people they meet. Despite all these men, women and couples coming through the brothel doors, he wrote, no customer has ever been outed or exposed by legal courtesans or brothel employees.
