On Wednesday, porn star Aurora Snow (pictured) penned an article in the Daily Beast on the recent Sasha Grey controversy and the criticism levied against porn industry performers thereafter. Snow feels that it is very unfair for people to judge Grey negatively for the same thing people do in their own homes:

There are many people out there who participate in all sorts of eccentric activities (S&M, odd political groups, or strange spiritual organizations) who, because they did not get compensation for these activities nor were they filmed, go unquestioned. How many other teachers dress up in leather with a ball gag and bend over a wooden horse waiting to get whipped at their favorite fetish club every weekend? Do you care? Because I bet there are more than you think.

In general, people in America are extremely prudish about sex. Take the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, for example. The opening ceremony included performances of men dressed in costumes nude ancient Greek statues. Though there was nothing perverse about the performance, a few prudes had to complain about it anyway.

And since when did having sex become an exercise in social deviance? Sure, some people make money doing it (pardon the pun) in front of a camera, but it certainly shouldn’t make them unfit and viewed as criminals. Snow underscores this point when she cites the case of high school teacher Kevin Hogan, who was suspended after it was discovered that he moonlighted as a porn star in the past. So far, nothing has come up to suggest that he abused children or would jeopardize their safety. And the same goes for Grey’s case. Critics who say she can’t read to a class of elementary kids are absurd. Snow adds:

Grey is, in fact, a better role model than half of the drug-addled young Hollywood crowd that haven’t taken their clothes off for a camera. Sasha Grey entered the adult industry with a set of objectives. She was a girl with a kinky dream, and she chased down her goals leaving the adult industry while she was still a rising star; she has since pursued bigger and better things. She was the first pornstar ever to grace the cover of Playboy, and her crossover into mainstream success was a result of brains, talent, and hard work. She has made history in my industry. And that is what porn is to her: a part of her past, that shouldn’t count against her.

Think about it. We have Newt Gingrich, a serial adulterer who now has a shot at being President of the United States. Then we have Marion Barry, who hit the crack pipe while serving as mayor of the nation’s capital — and he was re-elected after that drug scandal. The list goes on and on. And we have the audacity to attack porn stars for their moral competence to be role models?

Please.

So while we may not want to view our children’s elementary school teacher dressed in black leather with a whip in hand, consider this: How would you want your child to view you if they mistakenly found your own whip while playing a game of hide-and-go-seek around the house?

Let’s pray they don’t call Fox News. Read The rest of Aurora’s article here.
