The famed Duke University porn star says she’d like to tackle politics as her next big career move after her overnight success as a celebrity film star.

The second-year college student, whose real name is Miriam Weeks, told Business Insider [Read the Story HERE] she’s been heavily engaged in promoting libertarian views on her school’s campus and hopes it’ll carry her to a political career of her own one day.

“I’m conservative,” Weeks said of her political standing. “I’m very socially liberal, but I’m very economically conservative.”

Weeks said that it’s not just her “very, very, conservative” Catholic background that shaped her political views, but the work she’s done in the porn industry since famously outed last March as the erotic actress, Belle Knox.

from businessinsider.com – College sophomore Miriam Weeks found herself at the center of an international controversy last year when she became infamous as the “Duke porn star.”

Now, Weeks wants to make waves in the political world.

She’s working with a libertarian group on her campus and has a burgeoning public speaking career. In a phone conversation with Business Insider on Monday, Weeks discussed how her adult film career influenced her libertarian activism.

“I think that my work and being in the porn industry definitely hits on so many libertarian themes like free speech, and censorship, and, you know, choice and autonomy over our bodies,” Weeks explained. “So I think that I’ve really become passionate about libertarian issues because of the intersection.”

Bella Knox: ‘Prostitutes Are People, Not Criminals’

from rollingstone.com – As a porn actress, one of the perverse tragedies of public policy I often contemplate is the fact that people can pay to watch me have sex on camera but are considered criminals if they pay to have sex behind closed doors. I’m talking about prostitution, a practice that continues to be shunned in the United States, pushing countless Americans trying to make an honest living onto the streets despite centuries of human history proving that governments cannot eliminate market demand for sex. The time has come for the world’s oldest profession to be legalized in the so-called Land of the Free for public health, safety and opportunity.

First and foremost, I’d like to clear up a myth that remains pervasive in any discussion about sex work. Prostitution opponents love to promote images of abused hookers and human traffickers to trump up hostility towards sex work. While it’s true ill-intentioned criminals do exist and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, these conditions do not apply to the vast majority of sex workers. We should especially not conflate the sex industry with the abuses of human trafficking because it delegitimizes the workers and creates a moral panic that manifests itself in harmful legislation. The fact of the matter is that most sex workers enter the industry via their own consent and genuinely enjoy their work.
