I’m sad to say it, but I think that even today, women who pursue careers in adult entertainment are subjected to an array of prejudiced stereotypes regarding their character, life circumstances, and personality. They’re thought to be impoverished, drug-addled runaways who grew up with abusive or absent fathers, and now have abandoned all self-respect as they desperately try to survive the only way they can.
Because, you see, their underprivileged lives have left them dumb and uneducated. They either have always lacked the opportunity to intellectually enrich themselves, or they simply don’t care enough to try. Smart pornstars don’t exist; if they were smart, they wouldn’t be pornstars.
RED ALERT: Contrary to the generally prevalent stereotype, smart porn stars DO exist, and I’m going to reveal exactly where you can hangout with these brainy babes. Few guys know about this…
It’s a truly unfortunate meme, my bros, and I’m sorry to see that so many people still subscribe to it. It also doesn’t make a whole lot of rational sense when you think about it. Intelligent pornstars who show the power of their mind can well discover that the size of their brains is as much a turn-on for their audience as the size of their breasts.

Sapiosexuals Are Attracted to Smart Pornstars
No, really. Attraction to smart people, like every other imaginable kink you can picture, is a bona fide sexual fetish. Those who feel this way are called “sapiosexual”, from the Latin words for “wise” and, well, sexuality.
Of course, just about any guy would say that he doesn’t want a girlfriend with a bag of rocks in her head, but for some, a certain level of intelligence is extremely important or even downright necessary to hold a man’s interest. The reasons really come down to the classic combination of nature and nurture.
Recent studies have indicated that intelligent women are kinkier than less intelligent ladies. This makes a lot of sense, since more intelligence generally equals more curiosity and open-mindedness.
The evolutionary advantages of pursuing (and thus producing children with) a clever mate are obvious, so there’s nature. As for nurture, experts tell us that whether we realize it or not, we tend to prefer romantic partners who are similar to our opposite-sex parent.
So if your mother was a noticeably bright and intelligent lady, there’s a better than average chance you’ll at least find that trait attractive in women, whether or not you go all the way to sapiosexuality.
Smart Babes Who’ve Risen to The Top of The Porn Biz
By the way, while I tried to imply this in my opening paragraph, I’ll come right out and say it now: The stereotype about adult movie performers being dumb is a hot steamy load. There are plenty of intelligent pornstars. Let’s just take a look at Nina Hartley, who was active in the business in the 80’s and 90’s. The lady is a freaking nurse, you guys. For real.
Before she was cumming loud on camera, she graduated magna cum laude from San Francisco State University’s undergraduate nursing program, and was registered until 1986. Her license expired then, but her medical knowledge didn’t, so she can both ride you till you have a freaking heart attack and resuscitate you afterwards. She’s also a well-known activist for feminism – the sex-positive kind that believes women can actually make their own decisions, even if those decisions involve porn. You go girl.
Another person to consider among the family of smart pornstars would be Tera Patrick, a performer in the 90’s and 2000’s til she retired from the biz in 2008. While it’s true that she’s had a rough life, she was already working as a professional model in Japan (she was born in California) by the age of 14.
Today, she’s more of an entrepreneur, running her own modeling talent agency. She has also been all over TV and media in general, as she’s been both a Playboy Playmate and Penthouse Pet, has hosted numerous television shows, and even briefly worked as a voice actress voicing herself on Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Seriously. The girl’s even a freaking video game character: You can play as Tera in Backyard Wrestling 2.
But really, the only woman we ever needed to talk about here is the Goddess of smart pornstars herself, Asia Carrera. But I understate her; Asia is more like what smart porn stars hope to be when they grow up. This girl is “amazing” the way the surface of Venus is “slightly balmy”. She was a musical prodigy practically right out of the womb; by the time she was 15 years old, she had played the piano at Carnegie Hall twice.
A year later, she left her hometown of New York City to become an ESL (English as Second Language) teacher in Japan, a job most Americans think they can do, but by which nearly all are soundly humiliated if they actually try it. Not Asia. She scored over 1440 on her SAT, which was partly responsible for her being offered a full scholarship at Rutgers University; she studied Japanese and Business.
Asia Carrera blew the lid off of the IQ ceiling in the porn industry, when she made her entrance into it back in the 90s. This chick was just oozing intelligence, and it turned a LOT of guys on.
Today, she remains a member in good standing of the brainwave club MENSA, with a tested IQ of 156. For reference, arguably the two greatest geniuses of the 20th century, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, beat her out by only 4 points each at 160.
So yeah, don’t you dare question her mental prowess for making movies about men smashing into her. She could just as easily have been making subatomic particles smash into each other at CERN, had she chosen that path.
Hordes of Smart Pornstars Cam at MyFreeCams
If you’re thinking it might be fun to find and talk to some smart pornstars yourself, you’ll be happy to know that the magic of the modern internet makes this an entirely realistic goal. All you have to do is peruse some cam sites. Lots of them are good, but personally, I spend plenty of time on MyFreeCams (MFC), and there’s no shortage of stimulating minds there. It seems to be also be a favorite of many porn girls.
When you really think about it, there’s something about camming that may appeal to a certain kind of bright, nerdy girl. You know the type; the ones who’d play a rousing round of Smash Bros Ultimate with you, and maybe (just maybe) join your D&D campaign afterwards. Sitting in front of a computer all day to make your living is pretty geeky work, my friends.
Because camming involves working from home, it attracts a more introverted, entrepreneurial, and independent type of girl. These are traits that often align with the nerdy kind of smarts many of us love.
There are girls who’d be perfectly capable of it, but have no desire to pursue the work. While I’m certainly not saying that all camgirls are nerdy and intelligent (oh, how I wish!), we definitely end up getting more than our fair share, especially at certain cam sites. And because many smart pornstars, these days, also cam as part of their revenue strategy, finding them at sites like MFC can be easier than looking for them at some Hollywood party.
What this means is that you really only have to browse girls at random on MFC for awhile before you find the type you’re looking for. But a customized search for hashtags like “#nerd” or “#gamergirl” or “#geeky” won’t hurt either. Pornstars will also generally use the tags “#pornstar” or “#porn” on the site.
However you prefer to go about finding intelligent pornstars, I can tell you that their company is most definitely worth it. I’ve known plenty of them over the years, and they’re awesome girls. While I don’t know that any of them are members of MENSA (though I honestly wouldn’t be surprised, with a few of them), I have some good friends on MFC who can blow my mind in a nuanced philosophical discussion immediately after helping me blow something else in a private show.
It’s every bit as amazing as it sounds, my brothers, and I highly recommend it. I don’t even necessarily consider myself sapiosexual, but I love a woman who can challenge me mentally. Get to know some camgirls, and you’ll see that they really can deliver.
