    Here's a video of Sasha Grey describing her 5 favorite films.

    Only in her early 20s, Sasha Grey has starred in over 170 adult films.

    She's been on various programs throughout television and the internet defending her lifestyle and those who choose it. She has been quoted as saying that she's never done anything she didn't want to do.

    How is she intelligent enough to be on this list? Well, she turned to p*********y as an art form. She says she used to watch it when she was in college and used it to m********e, and was a huge fan, but always felt like something was "missing" from it.

    Her unique brand of name-calling and vocal reactions to what is happening in every one of her scenes are what she describes as a sort of "psychological warfare" she wages on her co-stars and the audience in order to challenge them all.

    In addition to her successful adult film career, she's also starred in mainstream director Stephen Soderberg's film The Girlfriend Experience and even has her own band.

    She has since used her popularity to herald such causes as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' initiative for animal birth control. She also recently went and read to school children, mostly clothed.

    Shy Love has starred in over 250 adult films during her career.

    She legitimately graduated high school at the age of 16, then earned a bachelor's degree and two Masters Degrees. She got her Bachelor's degree in Accounting, then got her Master's Degree in Accounting immediately afterward.

    Soon after, she became the comptroller of a multi-national pet pharmaceutical company in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. And during her employment there, she found the time to take night classes to earn her second Master's Degree in Taxation. By the age of 25, she was a certified public accountant, which means she's probably REALLY fun at parties.

    She's currently a talent manager, as she even started her own talent management agency.

    Here's a video about this lovely lady's lucrative career and how she runs some of her business from her bed:

    Not to be mistaken with Wayne's World's Tia Carrera, Asia Carrera was born in New York City and studied piano as a child (which is probably where she gets her fast fingers). She was so good at this, in fact (the piano playing), that she performed at Carnegie Hall TWICE before even turning 15.

    She's starred in over 275 adult films in her career (as well as some mainstream films) and has as IQ of 156. She also attended Rutgers University from which she earned a full scholarship, where she double-majored in Business and Japanese. She was also an avid Woman's Basketball fan.

    She never quite finished her full degree, though, because she made more money at the stripping job she had during college and according to her just "had more fun" and, according to Cyndi Lauper, that's all girls want to do anyway, so everything seemed to work out.

    She's gone on to own the rights to some of her most famous films, including "A is for Asia", and has become one of the most well-known adult film stars of all time.

    She's the self proclaimed "nerd of porn" and is an avid player of Unreal Tournament (a popular First-Person-Shooter game). She even went as far as designing her own game skins.

    Her gamertag is megabitchgoddess, for anyone who's interested.

    You may recognize her from the fake porn film in The Big Lebowski (Not to be confused with the Real Porn version of the Fake Big Lebowski) or from the action figures of her that are sold in some novelty stores.

    In this video: Asia's rocky journey to success, fueled primarily by her intelligent survival.

    A.J. Bailey

    The Scottish 29-year-old blonde holds a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology and studied art at St Andrews, the top Scottish university attended by Prince William.

    While she attended the university and was in MBA courses with some of Prince William's friends, she got her first spread in Hustler magazine.

    She's admitted that she spends a lot of her free time reading Tolstoy and Oscar Wilde.

    "I quite like being called the world's brainiest porn star... it is a cliche that all porn stars are airheads."

    Jenna Jameson is widely considered the most successful woman in porn. (As well as starring in mainstream films.)

    While her academic career isn't much to marvel at we have to give credit to the woman who almost single handedly brought porn into the mainstream. She owns multiple businesses and built up, then sold to Playboy, an enormously profitable production company in ClubJenna (that has over $30 million in revenue, with at least half of that being profit).

    The biggest reason for Jenna Jameson making this list, though, is her debating skills. In 2001, the Oxford Union debating society invited Jameson to come to Oxford to debate a proposed British law against pornography. Shockingly, she led her side to victory, winning the debate 204 to 27.

    She's also taken Bill O'Reilly to task for some of his hypocritical ways. Here's a youtube video of her appearance on his show, Jenna Jameson on Bill O'Reilly . Later, in February 2003, Pony International planned to feature her as one of several porn stars in advertisements for athletic shoes. This plan was attacked by O'Reilly, then Jameson sent a sarcastic email to the show, writing:

    "I hope Bill understands the difference between a porn star and a hooker. I assume he has done some research on the subject because he requested some of my videos after we finished taping my appearance. I imagine he wanted them for professional reasons."

    Jenna Jameson for the win.
