School District On Porn Star

We Didn't Know She Was So Anal

11/15/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sasha Grey reads to students
The school district that first denied to TMZ they allowed a hardcore porn star to read to first graders has now changed its tune, acknowledging she did indeed make an appearance, but they thought she was a mainstream actress -- not the winner of AVN's 2010 award for "Best Anal Sex Scene."

After the the Compton Unified School District told us Sasha Grey never read to students, we posted this pic which clearly shows otherwise. 

Now District officials tell TMZ ... an outside talent coordinator informed the school Grey's calling card was an appearance on "Entourage." 

The District says they will now shore up their procedures to make sure "controversial figures" are persona non grata.

Another happy ending ...

She is a better influence to those kids than union thug teachers are. You can see that the kids couldn't care less about where she used to work.

Very cool!
The school shouldn't be played by this no talent whore with her OWN agenda that exploits the kids.

If I were one of those parents I would not want her reading to my child. Kids have a tendency to admire and look up to people sometimes and I would not want my child to feel that way about her, especially a daughter.

However, I will say it would make a difference to me as to why she left porn. Did she leave it behind because had an epiphany about the morality involved or did she leave it only because she wanted a career change?

From what I have seen, she left it only because of a career change, no other reason. In that case, I would not want her reading to my kids at any time.

If she had left because she decided what she had been doing was the wrong thing, then I would be more open to the possibility of her reading to my kid. But, only after her past was far behind her, not RIGHT behind her. I would need more show of good faith that she meant to change her ways by some more history of a past without making porn.

I say that because, if the subject came up with my kid, I could truthfully say she had changed and she wanted to lead a different life based on doing the right thing, not based on using her porn past a springboard to advance her career.

I think that makes a difference and she would deserve a second chance, as anyone would.

Oh bunk! Can't you people see through the entire facade of just "reading to the kids".
She has created her ENTIRE persona on SHOCK VALUE.
That's how she stood out from the rest of the porn flock.
She was willing & eager to do the most raunchiest acts that others wouldn't.
People took notice, then she wanted to get on Howard Stern's show draped in a Palestine flag, which of course Howard saw through HER agenda.
Now she goes in reads to children,MADE DAMN SURE it was filmed/known.
She could of ANONYMOUSLY donated money for a reading program, but that wouldn't fit HER agenda of garnering/ publicity media attention!
She learned early the old SHOCK & AWE tactic of SAY SOMETHING GOOD,SAY SOMETHING BAD,BUT SAY SOMETHING!!!!
And of course it worked.

Why can't some see through this? LMAO

Whats the big effin deal? So what that a former porn star read a book to children. It not like she was showing them Playboy or Hustler or something. I'm sure that those kids just appreciated having someone to read to them. Stop trying to make it something it's not and let the innocent kids be innocent kids. Bill Clinton did similar stuff and we all know that he makes guest appearances everywhere. I'd let her read to my kid. So just because she has had sex and taped it at one point in her life makes her incapable of reading now? Come on school, grow up. The parents are just looking for something to bitch about. I bet every one of those parents has seen an adult video, or even own a few. Get a life!

Seriously, the parents need to lighten up. First of all I don't think she was reading the "Story of O" or "Lady Chatterly's Lover" to the kids. To them she was just some nice person sharing her time. The reality is, people are not one dimensional and it is possible to work in the sex industry and be a good role model.

I must have missed that bit in the Bible where Jesus says "sorry Mary Magdalene, you can't wash my feet because you did anal". I could understand the fuss if she were currently a porn star, but she's an ex-pornstar. If first graders are allowed unsupervised access to the internet they've got bigger problems than having Sasha Grey read children's books too them.

I remember my job-for-a-day in school. I chose police officer. Got to ride with a cop all day. Looking back, I don't recall pornstar being on the list of choices. I'm a little jealous now. My, how times have changed!

Quite possibly the dumbest issue I've ever heard of, what an absolutely illogical and ill-formed argument - "she might be a bad influence on the kids." Seriously, if those kids know who she is and what she did in a porn flick, then there are much bigger problems than a porn star reading a book to school children.

@ 68 Kyle, I am Jane #67, and I agree with your post and thought of saying something along those lines when I first posted. I did find it odd that this has made the news since supposedly no one knew who she was, yet here it is on the national news. I think she did it more to advance her "new" porn free career more than any desire to read to kids. I think she or her PR people thought it get her more offers from mainstream film makers, whether the publicity was good or bad didn't matter. It was publicity. Even better if it made her look like a martyr.

Unless she is reading them porn, who cares? Teacher salaries and jobs are being cut, and here you have a woman who volunteered to help school kids.

Priorities, people. Please.

I jest have a hard time figgerin out why their disallowin people with porn backgrounds who come into read? It aint like she's a child molester. To the little kids, she's a pritty lady who's readin to them. Figger its the parents who know who she is (wonder how?) and obect.
