Duke Student & Porn Starlet Belle Knox Defends Her Adult Career On The View! But Wait Until You See What Sherri Shepherd Says To Her!

| Filed under: TV NewsBarbara WaltersSexSchool

You have to be smart to go to Duke. Just like you have to be sexy (usually) to work in porn.

Luckily for Belle Knox, she’s got the brains and the bod to do both!

The 18-year-old has been paying for her $60,000 a year education by doing hardcore sex scenes on camera! And when a fellow Blue Devil student outed her XXX career earlier this month, she made headlines around the world!

No stranger to hot topics, the ladies of The View welcomed Belle to the table this week to give her a chance to explain why she turned to porn in order to make money.

According to Belle:

“I, like most other people, have been watching porn since I was 12 years old. Like most other females, there’s a stigma against watching pornography so I was not open about watching pornography.”

Wait, hold up. Did she just say she started watching porno when she was 12?!?

Okiedoke. It’s starting to make more sense why she might have chosen the career path she did!

But before you judge Belle, she wants everyone to know that just because a woman does porn doesn’t mean the experience can’t be empowering for her!

She explained:

“The idea of empowerment and degradation is completely subjective. For me, I feel that in this backdrop of our society where women are so often robbed of their sexual autonomy and are subjected to sexual violence in this backdrop of misogyny against women, it’s incredibly freeing and liberating for me to have that choice, to make decisions about my own body. In porn, I’m in a safe, controlled environment where I set the boundaries. I set the rules.”

A porn set is a safe environment but The View might not be! Because after that comment, Sherri Shepherd UNLEASHED her feelings on the sitch!

Press PLAY (above) to hear her take on Belle being both a porn star AND a college student!

If Belle feels good about being in porn and it’ll end up putting her through college, then all we can do is wish her luck! Just make sure you hit the books as much as you hit the bed, gurrrl!

    It is her body and she can do what she wants…WHy do some have a problem with this? Because she is a woman? Men can do whatever, but when a woman does it, the woman hating sexists have to condemn her…Stop the double standard- she is honest and leave her alone.



  2. 2

    There is always a price for selling your soul and this girl will eventually pay for it .



  3. 3

    I agree…millions watch it and so why shouldn't she make money and pay bills. and you KNOW there are many who watch it who then condemn it publicly…



  4. 4

    Girl's gonna learn the hard way. I agree with Sherri, it is heartbreaking in the sense that she thinks porn is the only way to pay college tuition. AND she says her parents are ok with her decision? It doesn't matter if it was a male or female doing this, it is still a sad road to choose. I wonder if she has actually been paid yet, as she said none of the films has been released.

    Sad , watching porn since she was 12??? so sad!

    i don't understand why they were shocked when she said she's been watching porn since she was 12, im 14 and have been watching porn since i was 11, i don't do it frequently but all of the people i know have been too. It may be wrong but that's an age where we're curious about our body and our sexuality so since its so easy to access to porn well

    Out culture has been inundated by media to be over sexualized and infantile (youth obsessed, I don't want to grow up) child adults. There is nobody promoting inner growth and growth of soul and no foundation for our children and their children to be nurtured within. Family is being (and has been) under attack by media that more and more we come to thnk f marriage as a prison rather than a commitment to children produced by our unions.

    Fewer of us know that 'making love' is loving the other, pressing endearments upon their hearts and souls while letting each other know, they are adored. No, most now think it should 'look like porn' for that is all they have been exposed to.

    This promotion of this young lady is a corporate mandate for media to expose us to, further education that we are animals and should f f f, because when we are mastabatorally controlled by our genitals we are owned.

    It IS sad that she has had to resort to doing these movies to raise 60K a year for tuition,
    something that (only SOME) of her judgemental silver spoon classmates couldn't begin to perceive. This is a girl who obviously wants to get a top education and I know of few other options available to her to earn that kind of coin at her age apart from a digital fundraiser or the porn equivalent of a sugar daddy. On top of it all, doesn't it seem that only one thousand to fifteen hundred a movie sounds realllly low, and that someone else will be making all the money from them?

    I am sure her parents are really proud of her, and that she will find a man who can over look her life choices.



  13. 13

    She is such a worthless piece of valley girl trash. Her fucking voice annoys me. And I can't fucking believe that some people think it's ok for her to do what she does. She apes all this BS that it's empowering, but that's what all attention whores sluts say to justify their despicable behavior and selfishness. Like she's the only one who ever had to pay for fucking college. Get a real job you fucking asshole instead of being a whore. And Barbara Walters has lost everyone's respect lately, she used to be a respected journalist, now she's just a trashy old lady whose opinions mean shit anymore. GO SHERRI!!!

    Please you can get a decent educaton and it does not have to be at Duke and then there is always Financial Aid. This girl simply likes being an exposed well paid prostitute. I would have more respect if she would just say I like doing porn and not used Education as an excuse. I also read her parents a Military Dr. who has served overseas and her mother were blindsided and devastated by her doing porn.

    I'm hoping she is using some sort of fake name, or else employers will recognize her and not take her seriously. She's going to have trouble getting a job now.

    "Misogyny against women"
    WOW. I always thought misogyny was against dogs or cats.
    So, this is a liberated INTELLIGENT Duke college student??? Surely she was accepted by opening her legs to the teachers.
    In Spanish we say: "calladita te ves más bonita" (you look better when no speaking). I'd ask her to close her mouth but surely she has a dick or two inside.

    Re: DrTake1 – we are conscious having a physical experience. At least, I am…I don't know about you. We can see about ourselves those that are drawn into either towards the divine or obscene. You can be Plato or an animal savage that lusts to murder and destroy. All is within our grasp…all of us capable of being inspired towards either direction.



  19. 19

    So who the F… is going to HIRE her after she gets this "great" education at DUKE??? will she list Porn Star on her resume, Oh no wait , she just found out she can make a hell of a lot more money if she continues the "sex work" than she will be making as a lawyer! and the beat goes on!! sad girl.

    No one can say what motivates her or how she really feels inside. I'd say that Duke should take a look at the date-rape hypocracy and porn star bashing that's going on on their campus.

    Well forst of all Sherry Sherpard is a dimwit. How she even is on the show is beyond me. The world is flat–anyone??? Her opinion doesn't count. The fact that "Belle Knox" even got into Duke means she's FAR more intelligent than Sherry Shepard. She can keep her self righteous opinions to herself

    Re: lou – where you get an education in this country it's gonna cost a ton of money. I am in the process of getting my Masters. School is expensive. Yeah u can use financial aid, but you have to pay that back. So you graduate from school only to be strapped with debt for your education. I feel it's her body and her life. She can do with it as she pleases. Her choices in life don't affect anyone but her. Not us. That's the problem with people. They are so concerned with other perople's business when they need to worry about their own.

    She has all the freedom in the world to do porn….and future employers have all the freedom in the world to refuse to hire her based on poor reputation. Good luck with having a serious job.

    Re: Heather – Well Duke students are also a bunch of douchebag, elitist racists and homophobes, and not much is done about it, either.

    I can understand the point of her possibly not finding suitable employment now that she's shown her face everywhere, but I don't know why everyone is condemning her so much. It's not like she's the only one doing it. She just got outed and she's milking it for all it's worth, which is probably the only dumb decision she made on her part. But there are quite a number of young female and male undergraduates doing porn, escorting, stripping, "modeling," gay for pay, etc., and some of them are raking in big money. And let's not forget the big time drug dealers around campus who are students by day. I'm not saying it's right, but I'm not saying it's wrong, but it happens, and it's been happening. The other alternative is being a slave to student loan payments for the rest of your working life.

    No one should be shocked that she's been used to knowing all about porn since a very young age. It may shock much older people, but it really shouldnt shock anyone under 40. Its been readily available online for the past couple decades. Long gone are the days when someone had to go to some tacky book store to buy porn. Its literally everywhere, scorned by some people but viewed by many many more.

    Re: Default Setting – My original reply was that we are animals "biologically speaking". Note the qualifier in the statement: biologically. If you choose to use "animal" in its symbolic or abstract sense, then by all means do, those are valid definitions and I was never addressing that, but nothing about what you've said changes the fact, let me repeat, the FACT, that, as defined by a consensus of biological researchers/scientists, you are unarguably, unchangeably, inescapably, concretely a multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia, phylum Chordata, class Mammalia, order Primate, family Hominidae, genus Homo, species Homo Sapien otherwise known as a human being a.k.a an A-N-I-M-A-L, animal…biologically speaking, that is. Excuse me if I take my definition from the people who actually study such things professionally.

    Seriously? You are going to bash someone that is working to pay for school? I don't fucking care what her work involves doing, as long as she can pay for education. That's North America's problem, you see making porn as a shame, while you all stand up high for schools that charges you 60 grand a year to teach you. If at least you had high quality public education, this wouldn't be a concerne.

    The saddest part about this, is that all of you people writing comments and judging her are more outraged by what this girl is doing to pay for her education, than the fact that the tuition costs $60,000!!!! That is more money than the majority of people make in a year! Unreal. Until Sherry Shepherd or any of you other judgmental folks offer to pay that tuition for her, you all need to just STFU.

    why does everything have to be about feminism and "empowerment" with women? I dont even see what porn has to do with feminism. Why is porn their business? I thought feminism was a fight for equality (even though white females earn more money than some races of males)? Why is it ALSO a fight against porn? What does porn have to do with equal wages? If feminists were TRULY all about equality and this was a gender equality issue with them… they would say "porn degrades men too" (men are in porn) but they NEVER say that because… this isnt about degradation. Its about women getting jealous of sexy females and instead of saying "i hate porn because it makes me feel less sexy".. they invent a sanitized reason. "i hate porn because it makes me feel less….. er.. because it degrades women. Yah. thats it."

    Porn is a wonderful beautiful thing. If it wasnt for porn, i'd only know about 6 sex positions. They dont teach us sex positions in school. And those "books on sex you find on store shelves" are sanitized bullshit. Thanks to porn …. I know more sex positions than I can think of words to name. I owe alot of thanks to porn. If it wasnt for porn stars, I wouldnt know how to eat out my girl PROPERLY. I learned it from a porn star who gave nice directions in an interview she did once. If it wasnt for porn, I'd never have realized just how sexy non american girls are. If it wasnt for porn, i'd never have known that some women squirt (schools and mommies dont teach us these things). I could write an essay about all the things I learned from porn that SCHOOL never taught me.

    Re: pollopicu – I bet you watch porn and tug on your ugly little dick and then feel overcome by a (justified) sense of worthlesness. You call her a whore, then you touch your microdick while watching it. Pathetic.

    What I find funny is the people who obviously watch porn ( including the one who outed her ) yet somehow believe she is evil for starring in it. If porn is so evil why do you watch it?

    Ladies and gentleman this is the end result of FEMINISM! These young women have been brainwashed into thinking that as long as it is their choice, they are EMPOWERED! Take a good look ladies, this is what it is all about! They were told, hell! men can do it, so can we! You are a failing gender, no one respects you other than yourselves! How much more pathetic can this get! A woman can never be a man, and a man can never be a woman! Even women are looking down and feel sorry for her and this whole likeminded female generation! SAD!!!!!!!!!!

    God Bless the USA. Where a girl needs to do porn to pay for her university degree. So f*king logic. In Europe you can do porn and make money or work legally like an escort or just go to university and pay around 500 euros per year. Take that USA.
