Miriam Weeks – who made national headlines when it was revealed she was doing porn under the name Belle Knox to pay for school at Duke University – is now telling her story in the Conde Nast produced docu-series “Becoming Belle Knox,” on the publisher’s digital site The Scene.

If an adult film company had produced the series, it wouldn’t have warranted so much as a head scratch. But Conde Nast publishes Vogue, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker,  among other mainstream titles. And Knox says it was Conde Nast who came to her with the concept.

“I was approached by Conde Nast about doing a documentary about my life. I feel like with my story there are a lot of misunderstandings about who I am, and nuances about being a student and a sex worker," Weeks told FOX411. “The documentary really humanizes me. I’m proof that porn stars can be real people.”

In the series, Weeks is portrayed as a sweet, insecure young woman grappling with her two identities – student and sex worker. Instead of episodes, the series is broken down into 5 chapters like “#pornstarproblems,” and “How to Hustle in the Sex Industry.” It’s a raw glimpse into a seedy, sex-saturated world showing everything from Knox getting tested for STDs to discussing how she towels off after sexual acts, to the struggle of attending school, where she says she is cyberbullied. 

Entertainment journalist David Caplan says he’s not surprised Conde Nast is going there.

“You don’t associate Conde Nast with porn, but they’re in the business of telling an interesting story,” he said. “The appeal to Belle Knox to Conde Nast is she managed to be a relevant public figure, she has an interesting story which is important for a story-telling medium.”

Knox says the line between the adult entertainment industry and mainstream media is indeed blurring, as evidenced by sex tape star Kim Kardashian’s superstar success. And if Kardashian can make it onto the cover of Vogue, why not her?

“I think that barriers are breaking down. It would be amazing (to be on the cover of Vogue)! I think some day we can get to that point.” she said. “Newer and newer opportunities are opening.”
