Duke porn star Belle Knox: Rough sex empowering, critics off base

Belle Knox, the Duke University freshman paying for college by doing porn, has upped the ante this week with a new blog post on XOJane.com espousing rough sex, and a spin around a stripper pole at a New York City skin joint.

“This is my first time dancing,” Knox told The Post before hitting the stage Tuesday night. “I’m nervous, but I think it’ll be really empowering.”

That "empowerment" line is the same one she used in her new, graphic blog post written largely about her first porn video, which included submission, name calling, and slapping.

"I’ve been called a hypocrite and mocked for daring to talk about empowerment if I have also not kept adequately hidden away my enjoyment of rough and dirty, nasty and filthy, saliva-dripping and name-calling-filled sex," she wrote.

Knox struck a similar, if less graphic, chord when she stopped in the FOX411 studios Tuesday to talk to us, and said doing all sorts of porn is empowering, because that's who she is. She also called out those who criticize her, including "anti-porn feminists" on the Duke campus.

“There’s a way to get your point out there. I totally appreciate opinions. I love when people can argue with me or whatever," she said. "But there’s a way to do it without attacking my personal character.”
