Duke University Freshman Porn Star Reveals Her Identity

Duke University Freshman Porn Star Reveals Her Identity

Remember when I shared that news about the Duke U Freshman Porn Star Story a little while ago? Well, at the time, the news spread across the internet we only knew the Duke University freshman as Lauren and her porn star alias as Aurora. Yesterday, she spoke up and spoke out for the entire world to hear.

The proud sex worker has baffled me again with a second blog entry on xoJane revealing herself. Be sure to check out the entire entry by clicking the link above, but take a look at her ending statement:

I am not your child or your property or your Madonna or your whore.

I stand for every woman who has ever been tormented for being sexual — for every woman who has been harassed, ostracized and called a slut for exerting her sexual autonomy — and for every woman who has been the victim of The Double Standard.

You want to see me naked. And then you want to judge me for letting you see me naked.

Society may feel like they are in control of my identity, but I refuse to let the dark corners of the Internet determine my future. Spend a minute Googling, and you will find these awful cesspools of hate and judgment and threats. These anonymous chat boards are determined to tell me what name I need to use (my birth name instead of my porn name), where I belong (I’m not good enough for Duke, apparently) and what I deserve (death, rape, humiliation).

The truth of the matter is this: I am one identity when I am a student. I’m another when I do porn. And no one controls either — but me.

Today, I am choosing to reveal my porn identity to the world.

My name is Belle Knox, and I wear my Scarlet Letter with pride.

Once again, she’s completely blown me away. Her true identity could have been found as early as two weeks ago if one were in that great of a search for it, but the courage it takes to address this hate head on is truly commendable and I’m personally astonished by her public display of strength.
