Belle Knox: Outed Duke University Porn Star Says Sex On Film Is 'Freeing'

Belle Knox is not shying away from the spotlight, even after the real-life identity of the formerly anonymous Duke University porn star has come out.

Knox, a Duke University freshman, decided to appear in adult movies as a way to pay the school’s high tuition costs. But a member of a fraternity caught wind of her identity, and though Knox asked him to keep it a secret the young man reportedly told other members of his frat.

This made Belle Knox something of a celebrity on campus, and also earned her heaps of criticism and threats online. The freshman, who had written about her experiences in articles published in xoJane and Playboy SFW under the pseudonym Lauren, decided to come out this week and reveal the name she uses on screen — Belle Knox.

In an interview on Piers Morgan Live this week, Knox said she does not regret her decision to join the adult film industry, even though it may have harmed her reputation and her standing at the school.

“We are in a society where we are so repressed, every single day. We’re told that sex is bad. We’re told not to have sex. We’re told not to show our bodies, and that’s really true for women,” she told Piers Morgan. “To be in porn and to be able to be naked and to be able to be free and have that sexual autonomy, it is so incredibly freeing.”

Belle Knox also pointed out the hypocrisy of people targeting her for making pornography when those same people are consuming it.

“I think eighty percent of the world’s traffic on the internet is pornography. And I think that probably every single person at some point in their life has watched pornography,” Knox siad. “So I think it’s extremely hypocritical that the same society that consumes me is also condemning me.”

Outed Duke University porn star Belle Knox also revealed the source of her working name. She said Belle comes from two of her favorite characters, Belle from Beauty and the Beast and another Belle from Diary of a Call Girl. Knox came from her fascination with Amanda Knox.
