Porn Legend Sasha Grey

Reads to 1st Graders,

School Attempts Cover-Up

11/11/2011 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sasha Grey reading to childrenPorn legend Sasha Grey -- winner of the 2010 AVN award for best anal sex scene -- was invited to read books to 1st graders at an L.A.-area elementary school last week ... but the school tried to cover it all up ... after parents pitched a fit.

TMZ has obtained photos of Sasha reading children's books at Emerson Elementary School in Compton on November 2nd ... participating in the Read Across America program.  Grey, who hasn't done porn in 2 years, may have been invited because she's mainstream now, with credits which include "Entourage."

Sasha tweeted about the experience -- calling the students the "sweetest" ever. However, not everyone saw it that way ... some angry parents complained to the PTA -- who then contacted the school's principal ... but there's one problem.

A rep for the school district is flatly denying Sasha was ever inside one of its classrooms -- telling TMZ, "We have several celebrities who read to our students each year. The actress you have indicated [Sasha] was not present."

Clearly, the photos we obtained show otherwise.

Well, it IS everyone's business if the school is lying about it. I don't think it is a big deal either but I can certainly understand how uncomfortable some parents might be. If a school is trying to cover up its actions, that is worth notifying the community about.

I think over the last few days we've learned what a not so good idea it is for a school to cover up anything involving children. Not saying this is even remotely close, but still, lying is bad, bad, bad.

Plus, Sasha posted about doing it on her Google+ profile, saying she was working with Read Across America in Compton. So I'm guessing this is not something she considers "nobody's business".

As several posters pointed out, this girl is a PIG. Thank you Conrad Murray(post #12) was describing on of her more tasteful films. Trust me, you don't want your kids knowing about Sasha Grey.Maybe if she's not introduced as Sasha Grey(maybe that's a stage name). My guess is she probably was, which is why the school is denying everything.

Sasha Grey is not your run of the mill porn star. I don't mean that in a good way.

Really, it's no big deal. I don't think a first grader is going say that this one experiance makes her their idol and then google her. And, all the school board has to say is "Sasha Gray wasn't here but *insert her real name* was". But in all seriousness, it sounds to me like a bunch of parents trying to make it look like they're doing a 'good job' by bitching about the small things. Just because they're adult film stars doesn't mean they're any less human or care about kids.

Only in California. I'm more than sure there are plenty of other teachers in the PORN business trying to make it into the entertainment industry. Any person stepping foot into a class room should have been fully screened before stepping 1 foot in the door!

So what's the problem? The children don't know about what she does for a living, it doesn’t make her a bad person, just like they don’t know that their parents watch her movies, it doesn’t make them bad parents. They just see a nice lady reading to them.

"Clearly, the photos we obtained show otherwise."??? If you believe everything that you see is real...I have some naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson that I would like to sell you. ;)

Also, I don't think that flipping the picture to make it fit your desired format is a justified reason for the modification. It's just stupid.

TMZ calling out the school on this..had this been a gay person reading and the parents outraged.TMZ would be throwing a fit defending the school and blasting the parents.they would even go as far as to dig up dirt on the parents who complained.for christ sakes she was reading to kids nothing wrong with that..sad thing is she prob spent more time reading to those kids than their own parents do.

If the premise was to get celebrities to read books to kids they failed miserably. Didn't anyone ask why she was a 'celebrity' before they allowed her in there? I didn't know who she was and I would have asked. If I had to explain to my little kids what she did for a living I wouldn't be happy.

What she does is not 'mainstream' and it is certainly nothing to be proud of. I don't want people like that put in front of my children without my consent whether they are naked or not.
