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.

I don't see what the big deal is. She obviously cares about kids, and it's not like she was having sex in front of them. Besides, this could actually help the image of porn stars.

Way to go Sasha! Good for you, actually doing something for someone else. I sure as hell hope the Compton School District has a backbone and keeps her reading to kids...gee I wonder if they supported multi murderer Stanley Williams? Don't be a douchebag Compton and support her helping kids in the neighborhood learn to read and enjoy it.

I don't see the big deal. It's not like she's naked reading to kids. Yeah she used to be a porn star..so what. She has moved on from that aspect of her life and is trying to do new things. Give her a break.

How is she mainstream? Doing one movie, and then a short run on a terrible TV show in which she was the WORST actor in a cast full of bad actors? She isn't even good as a PORN actress. She is like a throwback to the 70s style porn that often gets made fun of. Her "mainstream' career consists of bit roles or movies that are going straight to DVD and still not making any money. That is not mainstream. That is unemployed.

How in the hell do 1st graders know who Sasha Grey is? Do they watch Entourage? Have They seen that Girlfriend Film? How would they know she's a celeb? Of course the parents should be upset. What's the difference in having a active porn star in the school? Is there a statue of limitations on being a porn actress? After two years her porn doesn't exist? WTF What idiot at this school set this up.

There are no limits or boundaries to anything anymore. Nothing is ever wrong. Everything is fine. Mellow out. Accept it. It's all good. No worries. Gah! Who allowed the hippie movement to return? If I was one of those parents, I would be mad too. They are trusting that school with their kids and believing the staff will be responsible and appropriate in their decisions. Bringing in a porn star to read to the students is totally unnecessary and ridiculous.

Its not like she read the kama sutra to them. People need to stop being so judgmental. She read a children's book to children. You hate her for what she used to do, but you are unwilling to let her be anything else either. Grow the hell up people. Shes a human being. Just because she did something on video with other consenting adults doesnt mean shes going to expose your children to it. All those kids know is a pretty lady came to their school and read them a book. they have no idea who she is and they wont ever. Be a human being for a change and stop thinking your better than others just because you dont like the job they used to have.

Look let's get past emotion. Sasha is the "angel of death". She is not any pornographer, but the producer of snuff videos, she is the illustrator of "how to kill yourself". Having anal sex with fifteen strangers, sucking the contents of their anuses, having the same 15 men put their penises past your epiglottis, and swallowing 15 ejaculates, is guaranteed to get you AIDS, HPV and Hepatitis. This is sasha, hawking her brand to kids, selling her book, videos, and her brand. Why do you think she was there, to do good for her community. That is how she seeks legitimacy and sells her "brand". Did she have a table with her books and videos at school. Come to think of it, she never really went to school.

For all you people who do not know pornstars first careers before they entered porn, here is a list:

Ron Jeremy: Masters Degeree in Theatre form Queens College in New York. Also is a sign laguage teacher. "Very Intelligent"

Nina Hartley: Registered Nurse

Lexington Steele: Wall St. "Stock Boker"

Sean Michaels: Registered Nurse

Pornstars are not all trash and uneducated like most people seem to think. Many of them have had other careers in life.

It isn't like the kids have watched her work and will lust after her. She is a woman who donated her time to go read to a bunch of kids who enjoy being read to. Not one kid pictured her doing porn, she was a nice lady who read to them. Parents need to get over their hang ups.

What I find objectionable is not what she used to do for a living but TMZ's use of "Hot For Teacher" on the photo of her reading for 1st graders. Also did they have to include the remarks "winner of the 2010 AVN award for best anal sex scene "? Why not just leave it at former porn star?

Just another site trying to use something racy to sell it's story.

The district didn't know she was there because Sasha Grey is not her name - it's Marina Ann Hantzis. Idiots! There is at least one porn website currently dedicated to her, so former porn star doesn't fit either. These readers are role models, and "Sasha" should not be involved with someone else's kids. There are many ways to "go mainstream" and move beyond the past, but this isn't one. The NEA should be ashamed.

Retired or not- I would let her read to me,the kids, & even the grand-kids as long as she kept her professional life separate from the event of "only-reading"
