Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) hosted an event in the school’s main chapel last week aimed at preparing students to pursue careers in pornography.

A flyer advertising Washington University's sex week.

“Have you ever wondered how to get into the porn industry?” asked an online invite for the event. “Have you ever wanted to see your favorite performers in clothing?”

The event, entitled “A Night With the Stars: Life, Love, and Sex in the Workplace,” was held in the college’s Graham Chapel on Feb. 8. It included presentations from porn superstars Tori Black, James Deen, and Lance Hart.

“As St. Francis said, where there is hate f—, let there be love,” Hart said at one point in the event, according to an article in the independent school newspaper, Student Life.

The article also mentioned that when Deen asked those interested in becoming porn stars to stand up, only three students did so. 

The porn night was part of a larger sex week, funded with $10,350 of student fees, Megan Lane, vice president of the Student Health Advisory Committee, told Campus Reform.

Those mandatory student activity fee amounts to one percent of tuition, according to information on the college’s website.  For the 2012-13 school year, they amounted to $212.50 per student, per semester.

Lane said student funding is distributed based on a vote of the Student Union Treasury (SUT) — and that the administration stands wholeheartedly behind the SUT’s decisions.

“The administration is very supportive of any choice the students make when it comes to funding,” she said on Monday.

Lane added the sex week was aimed at expressing how the college students “view sex as a culture.”

Inviting stars and producers from the porn industry to college campus — using money from student fees — has apparently become a trend on college campuses nationwide.

On Feb. 7, the University of Illinois hosted an “Orgasm Workshop” taught by Annie Sprinkle, a porn star from the 1970s and 80s who starred in adult films such as “Big Busty 3.”

On Feb. 15, Axel Braun — the director of 400 pornographic films — will be flown in from Los Angeles to the University of Chicago campus for a Q & A session as part of the school’s sex week.
