In America, the cost of higher education has sky-rocketed to the point that few can now afford it. The Republicans in Congress have recently allowed the costs of student loans to nearly double for the enrichment of their banker friends, and so the burden of paying off the high interest on student-loan debt for years into the future has become so onerous that many young women are having to resort to some creative ways of making enough money to afford their college tuition. My sister, who is graduating from college this spring knows a few girls who are trading their bodies for cash. Apparently, it has become common practice for young college girls to enter into sexual arrangements with older men who want be their ‘sugar-daddies’. The girls have sex with these men for years in exchange for part of their college costs being covered. My sister and I were fortunate enough to come from a family that could afford to send us through college, but even I resorted to modeling all through my undergrad years at Ohio State to earn extra spending money.

Now, a young freshman coed from Duke University has been outed by one of her classmates as a porn-star!  Miriam Weeks, an eighteen year old student has embarked on a career in porn in order to pay for her college education. She kept a low profile for months fearing reprisals from administrators at Duke University, but one of her classmates spilled the beans and she is now in the news for her decision to resort to acting in porn films to finance her education in women’s-studies. Miriam adopted the stage-name Belle Knox, and has appeared in several porn-flicks with both men and women. The news of her venture has  gained her exposure on the talk-show circuit, but it has also garnered her the negative reactions she feared by Duke University officials and from the student body. She has even received death-threats from southern red-state hate-mongers and sanctimonious Christians who condemn her actions.

But here is the thing… these people who condemn her actions are the very same people who voted into office these right-wing Republicans who are responsible for doubling interest-rates on student loans. They themselves have created the situation which forces young girls to prostitute themselves in order to be able to afford a college education, and then they have the shameless audacity to condemn them when they are forced to trade the only thing they have left to bargain with, their bodies! These are the same reactionaries who fight tooth and nail to keep America from subsidizing higher education like other developed nations in Europe do, because they are terrified of the word ‘socialism’. As a nation we have decided to sacrifice our future by refusing to invest in the education of our young people. This puts us at a severe disadvantage when we are in competition for jobs with other countries which have wisely decided that paying for their children’s higher education is a national priority. This is also a contributing factor to the vast inequality in wealth and income which now threatens the economic future of America.

  1. It did not happen to me, but I heard from many friends at the university that they were ‘modelling’. Of course this was the official title but I often heard from them that it made them sick. Really sick of sweating bastards, beer bellies and their dicks stank terribly like rotten fish. No girl likes a ‘job’ like this.

  2. Bethany,
    This is a good article and I was with you 100% until you blamed it all on the republicans. We have had similar tuition hikes in California with a democratic super majority. Plus someone has to pay for the dream act and the influx of non citizens into our educational system. Our country is broke. We can’t just keep expanding with no thought of consequences. I find it sad that she made the decision she did. But to blame the republicans for that decision is a stretch.
    Although I was not from a rich family like you, I did have a sports scholarship. My heart goes out for her. Desperate times sometimes create desperate measures. There are tens of thousands of students that are not doing porn to pay for college.

    However, if the law says that porn is legal under the first amendment then she shoul be free to be employed in that industry with out retribution. It is hypocritical for the very progressive system that gave us legal porn to punish a person exercising their legal right to participate.

    • The law says abortion is legal too, so women should have no retribution from Republican lawmakers who try to prohibit it at every opportunity! Here’s a link you should follow…

      Republicans ARE the ones responsible for doubling student-loan interest rates across America! If we can afford to loan Wall St. bankers at near-zero interest rates, we can do it for students too, which is an investment in America’s future. Wall St. bankers only use fed loans to get richer! The national debt is conveniently an issue only when it comes to spending on the poor. Giving it to the rich never seems to trouble debt-concerned Republicans!
