Duke Student “Pays for Tuition” With Porn Earnings…

220px-Duke_text_logo.svgA Duke University student is in the news today for her work in the porn industry. The student claims she took on this risqué job to cover the large amount of tuition Duke University requires from it’s students. According to Seattle Times , the duke student was ” hired by Matrix Models and was flown to Los Angeles during school breaks for the porn filming”.

“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.”- Duke Student  

Online stories and comments flared when the student’s real name was identified.

“she felt victimized and harassed, not by the porn industry, but by the reaction online and at Duke.”, Seattle Times further states.

Though this story is surprising, it isn’t as unusual as one may think. College girls have been found in similar situations. Moreover, though it is not extreme as the porn industry, some girls can be found stripping because of similar financial crises.

Who’s to blame in a situation like this, society or the individual?
