The rising adult Starlet Tasha Reign takes part in a panel on the perceptions of pornography, the role of media and religion

Tasha_Reign_College_StudentTasha Reign, the UCLA student & Adult performer addressed a class of Psychology on Monday at UCLA, participating in a panel along with Nina Hartley, the veteran performer. There were around 30 undergraduate & graduate students present in the class along with Dr. Neil Malamuth who is UCLA Speech & Communications Studies chair and a researcher in Sexually Explicit Media. After the class was formally ended, students stood there for almost half an hour taking pictures and asking questions.

“This was my first paid speaking gig, and I’m glad I could do it in an academic setting, especially here at my own school,” Reign says. “If you ask me, the hardest thing about working in the adult industry isn’t the industry itself, it’s the stigma you have to deal with when you are outside of the industry. I don’t know if we changed any minds, but at least I told them my own experiences, instead of those friend-of-a-friend, secondhand rumors that can turn up whenever people get together.”

Tasha_Reign_College_Girl14David Frederick, Ph.D., as a Visiting Assistant Professor in Psychology is teaching the class at the University and according to him the course curriculum has been included with viewing “The Price of Pleasure,” which is a 2008 documentary that revolves around the adult industry and its consequence on viewers; analysis of exposure of men to pornography and its effects to their attitudes on various subjects; and readings by anti-porn activist Robert Jensen and sex-positive feminists such as Wendy McElroy.

“Nearly everyone thought Playboy should be legal,” Dr. Frederick says, reflecting a casual survey of class. “Most thought hardcore porn should be legal, most thought ‘gangbang’ scenes should be illegal — though I think maybe a bunch of them thought ‘gangbang’ meant ‘simulated rape.’”

Tasha has been into nude modeling and working in gentlemen’s clubs as a dancer and at the same time attending UCLA. Her first cameo appearance was in 2010 and has even received a Best New Starlet nomination from renowned XBiz awards. She has made her appearance in over 50 adult movies and became famous throughout the world when her picture with Bill Clinton (former President) & adult performer Brooklyn Lee at Monaco in a fundraiser went viral in the beginning of this year.
