After her career in the industry, she became an early adopter of the internet, being one of the first porn stars to create their own web site.”

“Starting her adult industry career in the mid-1980s, much like Sharon Mitchell, Nina Hartley has been through it all. Academically she graduated magna cum laude from San Francisco State University’s nursing school, and is a registered nurse. Like Ron Jermey she travels the world weighing in on lectures and debates as well as acting as an expert in all things sex. In 2006, she wrote the book Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex.”

She got her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting, then got her Master’s Degree in Accounting immediately afterward.Soon after, she became the comptroller of a multi-national pet pharmaceutical company in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. And during her employment there, she found the time to take night classes to earn her second Master’s Degree in Taxation.

“Admitting that she spends a lot of free time ready Tolstoy and Oscar Wilde, Baily has Masters Degrees in both Anthropology and Museum studies from St. Andrews University in Scotland Se first entered the world of adult entertainment when she needed to find a way to finance her postgraduate studies. On her academic studies, Ms. Baily had to say, ‘I quite like being called the world’s brainiest porn star… it is a cliche that all porn stars are airheads.'”
6. Ron Jeremy
“Ron earned a bachelor’s degree in Education and Theater and a master’s degree in Special Education from Queens College in New York. He then went on to teach special education classes in the New York City area. Being the most recognizable male porn star in the industry, Ron has gone on to take part in lectures and debates around the world to defend pornography.”
7. Sasha Grey
“Sasha is arguably the most famous porn star in the world right now. Though she has no academic background, she regularly espouses concepts you would find in upper division undergraduate courses like existentialism, German expressionism, and French New Wave; with this, Grey has built a brand around herself as being a bit brainier than your average porn star.”
8. Lorelei Lee

“A graduate student at NYU, Lorelei Lee, 28, is a well known p**n star who has managed being a student and adult film star for almost 10 years.

Lorelei is a 2008 graduate from San Francisco State University. She enrolled at NYU’s creative writing program.

Despite much criticism, she continues to juggle both her adult professional career AND her grueling academic duties/schedule.” – ranker

2. Jenna Jameson
“While her academic career isn’t much to marvel at we have to give credit to the woman who almost single handedly brought p**n into the mainstream. She owns multiple businesses and built up, then sold to Playboy, an enormously profitable production company in ClubJenna (that has over $30 million in revenue, with at least half of that being profit).

The biggest reason for Jenna Jameson making this list, though, is her debating skills. In 2001, the Oxford Union debating society invited Jameson to come to Oxford to debate a proposed British law against p**nography. Shockingly, she led her side to victory, winning the debate 204 to 27.” – ranker

1. Joanna Angel
“Ms. Angel holds a degree in English Literature from Rutgers University and a minor in Film Studies. She puts these degrees to good use, writing and directing her own videos becoming a figurehead in the alt porn movement. Not only that, her writing has appeared in The New York Times and Spin Magazine.”
