Sasha Grey:

I Will NOT Quit

Reading to Schoolchildren

11/11/2011 11:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sasha Grey
Porn legend Sasha Grey says she will NOT back out of a national elementary school reading program -- despite pressure from parents -- claiming she will "not live in fear" of her XXX past.

TMZ broke the story ... Grey -- who once won a Best Oral Sex award for her role in "Throat: A Cautionary Tale" -- participated in the "Read Across America" program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, CA last week.

Afterward, the school received complaints for letting Grey around the kids. For the record, Grey has been out of the adult business for 2 years.

Now, Sasha has released a statement ... saying, "I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent."

She adds, "I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am."

"I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives."

SASHA'S STATEMENT:

"I am proud to have participated in the "Read Across America" program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, CA. I read “Dog Breath” by Dav Pilkey to the sweetest 1st and 3rd grade children.

 "Read Across America" is a program that was designed to promote literacy and instill a lifelong love of reading in elementary school students. Promoting education is an effort that is close to my heart. Illiteracy contributes to poverty; encouraging children to pick up a book is fundamental.

 I believe education is a universal right. I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent.

 I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am.

I will not live in fear of it. To challenge non-profit education programs is an exercise in futility, counter-productive and anti-educational.

I cannot thank my fans and 'Read Across America' enough for supporting my decision. Your support and kind words continue to inspire me. I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives."

There are those who judge and those who do. She should be allowed to volunteer her time and do what she enjoys...helping kids.

im sorry but the last time i checked having gangbangs willingly and getting paid for it makes you a whore. you have the same mentality you did when you were taking 3 ***** in your ass and screaming you want one in the mouth. time doesnt change what you did and unless your whole porn career was the product of temporary insanity i wouldnt want you around ANYONE. yeah i watch porn, but ive also watched real footage of someone getting in a fatal accident or hurt for my entertainment pleasure (faces of death, tosh.0, jackass, other various media fiction or not) but i wouldnt be in a threesome with my girlfriend nor would i torture someone or shoot them point blank. i wouldn't say the woman is a criminal outright, but her moral code and current standing on the scale of ethics doesn't make her a prime candidate for reading to elementary children. i don't think she was thinkin about little jimmy's education when she got best oral sex award a few years ago. being a whore has always carried a stigma with it because you are engaging in acts that while people don't consider to be overly harmful to anyone, still deviate from what we consider "good" women who sleep around are whores, at least that's what ive heard from well...anyone ive ever met, so one who does that consistently, for money, and is well known for it would only naturally make her...you guessed it, the whore to end all whores. the size queen bee. and unless im wrong, whore isnt a term of endearment, or something you would probably take offense to if you were called one, so i dont think it would be at all considered a "good" thing. i guess she's just the last person id want reading to anyone, let alone a kid. her gaze upon my child as she reads little jack horner is the same one she gave all those men before she got all of them off. i know some will argue i eat ***** and kiss my mom with the same mouth but personally, me and my mom don't get along and i stopped kissin her years ago. **** you sasha grey you sick and twisted ****. hopefully this will help destroy your career instead of help it like i know you wanted.

that and a former hardcore porn star going on an elementary school reading campaign seems like a publicity stunt. go help the AIDS kiddies in Africa you moron

The fact that there's such a casual attitude about this and the weirdo sex ( who drinks enemas ,let alone from some one else's arse) she's done on film is perceived as normal/ standard fare is a symptom of the damage...

POINT BLANK PERIOD you dont do gangbangs for money and enjoy it then turn around 2 years later and expect people to believe your sincerity when reading to children. why didnt you become a teacher instead of sucking **** for money? this is just a publicity stunt by her and tmz bought into it.

"I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner."

She forgot: "I'm a whore"

Just saw a local news report about this. The Superintendent of Schools was outraged. She says she didn't know that the woman was "a actress". A Actress? Maybe it should be the Superintendent that we don't let near the kids.

Couple of thoughts:

First, it's extremely difficult, if at all possible, to think of something even more abominable, more disgusting to the very core than an ultra-mega-whore reading books to innocent children: the symbol of vice and debauchery is allowed to EDUCATE and ENLIGHTENT (?!) the symbol of virtue and innocence?! Can anything indeed be more blasphemous and nauseating than this???


Second, it's not this filthy and disgraceful super-hyper-slut that must bear the brunt of blame for this ULTRA-DESPICABLE, unthinkable situation - it's those who actually AUTHORIZED this to happen: it's they who are the REAL CULPRITS, it's they who must be pilloried in the first place((((((

Last but not leas, It's possible ONLY in the united states of america - a country where the word "freedom" has long lost its original meaning and come to mean strictly "absolute and unbridled freedom of sexual perversions"


What an unimaginable disgrace this is!!
Americans, u are LOST, and i'm afraid, without hope.

I would be more concerned if a Politician read the same tale.

You are not a role model and it is not appropriate for you to be reading to young kids. You did hard core porn and I am sure you are proud of it.

Well good luck finding parents that will allow you to read to their children! Your actions do define you as a person. We make our own choices. Sadly your choices suck. Cya ho.

Nice eyebrows, hoe! I can see why you had to go into porn, you don't have the looks to go any farther. Unless you saved some $$$$$ from socking and focking, maybe buy you a cute face??? good luck with that HOE!

Good for you girl, I can't believe all these hipocrites, they most likely have seen all of your work and now they are screeming bloody murder. I have no idea who you are but will now certainly seek out your work. But meanwhile keep up the good work aside from you past life.

let this be a lesson to you kids out there...there are some bad choices that you can't recover from. the squeaky wheel gets the grease and if people protest about it enough, she'll be dropped by this organization for "the greater good"...that being their cause. Read Across America isn't in the business of helping this girl repair her reputation, and if she becomes a liability that takes credibility from what they're trying to do, she won't be reading to anybody's kids. that's just the way it goes.
