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.

She is just reading to kids. I don't see the issue. Should she close herself off from the rest of the world because she was in porn movies?

Unless she was spewing profanity or was introduced as "Porn Star Sasha Grey" what is the issue here? She is reading to children in her spare time. What do you do in your spare time? Find a career you agree with and get them to volunteer some time, otherwise shut your mouth.

It doesn't matter that the kids don't know. That's the same argument that TnT mom used when she dressed her daughter up like the Pretty Woman hooker.

I also wouldn't want Steve Hirsch hanging out with my kids.....or Kim K or Fred Phelps.

Yeah, I see both sides here.

She was dressed and acted appropriately...not like they showed her films or she discussed what she did for a living. She was doing a good thing for the kids.

But at the same time, the school should know who comes into their building and deals with the kids, inform parents, and make proper judgements.

The school may not have actually been lying and they just had no idea. She probably didn't show up using her porn name.

Schools need all the help they can get. Having a porn star do this is no big deal. Having parents who can't read ( in the 21st century) trying to teach a kid to read, is a bigger deal. Everything that was thought to be sacred has been dumbed down. Police forces taking people who barely made it out of high school then gives the idiots a gun and badge. Then there's the military who was taking anyone. I'd rather have a porn star any day read to my kid then a dumb uninterested parents or teachers who don't care.

42% see nothing wrong with a hard core porn "actress" reading story time to small children? Hmmmm just wondering but does that percental fall into the 17-30 male childless demographic? and comparing a porn actress to a gay person, wow. Bunch of freaks.

Kids use Youtube. She has Youtube videos where she is talking about anal and bla bla. I don't want my kid to be on Youtube and come across this skank. I am sure all these who are saying it's OK. it's the skank Men.

Kids that age would have no clue who this woman was. They wouldn't see her any differently as any other woman who comes in and reads to them. Until of course, the parents make a big deal of it. That's how the kids find out they've been read to by a porn star.

It's the parents' right and obligation to make a big deal out of it.

What I would like to know is...who is the person picking these so-called "celebrities" to read to the children every year? Some man was having a good time with planning for this one!! Hahahaha
