Dad returns from Afghanistan to learn his kid is Duke porn star
New York Post ^ | March 10, 2014

Posted on 03/11/2014 2:38:44 AM PDT by SMGFan

A US Army physician came home from a tour in Afghanistan to find that his little princess had turned into a porn star. Devout Catholic Dr. Kevin Weeks was stunned by the news, but told relatives he and his wife are still supportive of Miriam, a Duke University freshman who has been having sex on camera to pay for her huge tuition bill.

Easy money. The only explanation why someone would choose this over an honest job. This is going to follow her for the rest of her life. Pre-internet she could have gotten away with this. No way in hell now.

More evidence of the wickedness of the educational-undustrial complex.

$60K/year for tuition? Better to choose a more reasonable school than sell one’s soul to get an over-priced BA in psychology (I have no idea what she’s studying but I’m betting it’s psych or sociology.)

Well, to make it big she will need a nose job. Can’t see her feet but may need to have her toes straightened. Will have to join a gym so to stay trim and toned. Also, will need regular spray tans. So, lots of maintainence associated with the profession :)

Is it just a supplement or is she paying the full freight for her tuition? Maybe she isn’t making her parents pay the bill like so many kids today who think they are entitled to a college diploma(for whatever reason)at a huge price. I’m thinkin’ Duke ain’t cheap. Maybe it’s just for beer money.

Apparently this young woman was “outed” by a male student who recognized her as a classmate while he was watching porn. Gotta love it. Now he’s as infamous for watching it as she is for appearing in it....

Sorry, but I think they have a responsibility to say something about this. Saying they “support” her is ridiculous and doesn’t help her at all.

Of course, she’s a “women’s studies” major, so she may be too ideological to listen. Porn and prostitution, along with abortion, are sacred to people in “women’s studies”. But I think they do have the responsibility to say something to correct her.

She's 18 and paying her own tuition. If these are the kinds of choices she's making it's way too late for her parents to try to correct her....

A military doctor can make in the low six figures based on rank, bonuses, specialty, etc. A nice living, considering they don’t have to pay for malpractice insurance or continuing education. But not enough to pay out of pocket for private college tuition.

Well, at least she has a vocation to fall back on; not much of a future with either one of those degrees.

If you are going to pay $60,000 a year get a degree that makes you employable at a salary great than 1/2 of your yearly tuition.

Not sure about the family’s financial situation. But I have two in college, and they don’t even let you stand foot on campus until financial obligations are met. Parents have to sign off on payment plans, loans etc. So I doubt she needed porn to pay for tuition. More of a sensationalized excuse.

Fwiw,she continues to enjoy her work as a porn star. And wants to make it a career. How nice.

It was an interesting story, to be sure, but one statement stood out to me: “Tuition at Duke is about $60,000 a year.”

I graduated from a small but prestigious college in my state, where almost all courses were taught by PhDs and there were no graduate assistants teaching, that was not allowed. The tuition, room and board then (1962-66) was $1,300 a year. Here, at an admittedly nationally-known school, it’s many times higher, and adjusting for inflation that $1,300 in 1966 was $9,500 today. Note that the above does not appear to include room and board. I submit that there is no way that this young lady is getting a much, much better education than I did. Maybe somewhat but not to that monetary tune.

Yep, the Griggs-Duke Power Supreme Court decision paid off great for colleges. Their professors’ Full Employment Act of 1971.

Uh, I’m pretty sure that’s NOT how it works.

Yes, this young woman made a very bad decision. But she has a lot of company. A lot of young women seem to have no trouble doing porn, including sex webcams. It’s kind of sad and pathetic, especially when you hear it is how they are “working” their way through school. At least if you’re a traditional prostitute, it’s easier to keep the activity quiet. Some of these women may actually imagine they’re actresses. To me, they are just prostitutes who get paid to have sex on camera. What man in their right mind will want to hire or marry these women?

She needs to stop screwing aroun............. Oh, she already is. Maybe she needs to pick up the pace. In either case, for me, the parents need to (if they’re picking up any of the tab) tell her she can either stop or they’ll stop. Is she under 26? I guess they can’t cut her off until then since that apparently is the new end age for childhood.

Just a thought....

If she where suing for abortion rights, how many people would be there screaming about, ‘her body, her choice, her right...blah, blah blah.

Yet using her body, her choice, her right, to make money is ‘heartbreaking.’

To me that’s always been one of the worst aspects of abortion. It somebody argues that there is an absolute right to destroy life, how can anything less than that ever be called bad? Once you’ve allowed abortion, nudity, sex for hire, etc, etc, are really just parking tickets.

When she gets a little more meat on her bones she will earn big bucks as a porn star. She will then write a graduate thesis on the economics of being a $5,000/night incall companion.

At some point one of her clients, rich clients, will insist that she get out of the business and become his alone. At that point he will give her a condo that includes in addition to a budoir, a complete up to date office with research facilities from which she will write award winning blog pieces. The blog will become well received and she will receive speaking engagements at $50,000 per crack.

If I were Dad, I’d be more worried about what people are thinking I was up to with my daughter that turned her into a porn start. The pathway to porn is pretty well established, and a warm fuzzy childhood isn’t part of the recipe.

She didn’t want to get away with it...when a reporter from the Duke student newspaper heard the rumors and confronted her, she never tried to deny it. In fact, she was interviewed on several occasions, knowing full well that a story was forthcoming.

This is a carefully calculated stunt to put her on top in the porn world (pun intended). Looking at the photo, I’m guessing there are far more attractive women in the “industry,” and her so-called career wouldn’t last more than a couple of years. But with this flood of publicity, she is now the best-known porn actress in America, a dubious distinction at best.

This is reminiscent of Michael Sam’s recent coming out, which was aimed at moving him up in the NFL draft and getting him on a roster.

I feel sorry for the young woman’s family. Absolutely no sympathy for her.

Well, I think college student have always had casual sex with each other. That’s certainly the way it was in my day (last 70s, early 80s). But back then no girls I knew would have dreamed of having sex on camera, to be posted where anyone could see it. Even naked photos were taboo back then.

No, but she's got lots more Associate and Assistant Deans and Associate and Assistant Provosts and Vice Presidents (or Vice Chancellors), with much larger office staffs, to look out for her while she's getting her education than you did when you were getting your education.
