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.

58% of the vote said porn stars teaching kids is "no big deal." Shows how far down the moral ladder of human beings we've come....

So, let me get this straight...she's willing to spend time with kids and encourages them to read. There was no porn shown to the children. From the children's perspective they just had a really cool reading session with someone new..and this is a problem, WHY???? I have a 6-year old in school, and I would have absolutely no problem having her or Ron Jeremy or any other porn star read to them to encourage literacy. As long as the material is age appropriate, why do we care what the person does for a living?

Is she a convicted child molester? NO ..is she casey anthony? NO... did she dress like a slut? NO.or even a pron star? NO... were the kids visibly upset?NO...... did she touch any of them inappropriately? NO.... did any other adult who read to kids in the past never had sex? i guess judging from the reaction the answer is YES.... do the kids know who she is? if yes then your a horrible parent for allowing them to watch porn. will they remember a random reader 12 years down the line? No ......was she there preaching sex to them and telling them to go into adult filming ????? i guess it was career's day.......

she is a person too .....i guess all of you uptight people just love to judge others ..... i guess she better hide now when she walks on the road... god forbid your kids might see her on the street and recognize her. and forget that she came an read a book to them while actually holding it the "right side up"

Totally inappropriate and I think it's scary that some of the people who voted "no big deal" are going to be parents someday or possibly are parents now. If a school is going to have a "celebrity" come and read to them, speak to them, or do something for the good of them it should be a celebrity who is truly admirable. I understand you can't get Leonardo Dicaprio or anything but sh*t that doesn't mean go grab a porn star who ran away from home when she was 16 and started doing teen porn.

Porn is probably the most abusive legal industry there is (have you ever read testimonies from
Ex-porn stars? Exploitation galore) and now it's just "something a person does for a living"?

I'm wondering who on the school board was crazy enough to think that this particular invite wouldn't piss off all of the psycho-prudes out there in the world, but personally this doesn't bother me in the least. Chances are none of the kids know who she is, she didn't PERFORM for them, and she isn't all scary-******-up with plastic surgery like a lot of other porn stars.

No big deal.

If you're fine with prostitutes hanging with your kids, good for you. You go right ahead and let them interact with whomever you like. On your private time.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with sasha reading a book to a classroom full of kids.The taxcher was in the room while asaha was reading,she was fully clothed wearing jeans and a long sleeved shirt.The parents should be thanking her for taking the time to do this ,which is something they don't. do

It does no harm to allow anyone (besides a pedophile) to read to a child under supervision. You don't have to make it clear to the students what this lady does for employment. She isn't doing anything illegal, just immoral in the eyes of some people. Its not like she was in there on career day! Reading to a child is never a bad thing! I would have no problem allowing her to read a children's book to my daughter.

Welcome to America, land of the free, home of the prudes.

Miss Grey did nothing inappropriate in class, People just love to chastize others. What she does for a living is perfectly legal.. What she did in the classroom was also perfectly legal. You prudes need to get a life

Did they even know she was a "celebrity"? For all we know she has a child in the school and was reading to his/her class. She was just a volunteer reading to them. That is all they probably knew!
