(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Adult performer and UCLA student Tasha Reign addressed a Psychology 101 class at UCLA on Monday, participating in a panel also including veteran performer Nina Hartley. The class was attended by an estimated 30 undergraduate and graduate students and UCLA Speech and Communications Studies chair Dr. Neil Malamuth, himself a researcher in Sexually Explicit Media. Students stayed 30 minutes after class formally ended, asking questions and taking photos.

"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 said. "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."

According to David Frederick, Ph.D., who is teaching the class as a Visiting Assistant Professor in Psychology at the University, the course curriculum has included viewing "The Price of Pleasure," a 2008 documentary about the adult industry and its effect on viewers; reviews of studies of exposure to pornography to men and the effect on their attitudes on a variety of subjects; and readings by sex-positive feminists including Wendy McElroy and anti-porn activist Robert Jensen.

"Nearly everyone thought Playboy should be legal," Dr. Frederick said, reflecting an informal survey of the 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.'"

Reign has been attending UCLA while working as a dancer in gentlemen's clubs and nude modeling. She started performing on-camera in 2010 and received a Best New Starlet nomination from the prestigious XBIZ awards. She has appeared in more than 50 adult video productions and became world-famous when a picture of her with former President Bill Clinton and adult performer Brooklyn Lee at a fundraiser in Monaco went viral earlier this year.

About Tasha Reign:

University student, vegetarian, social activist, rock & roll reviewer, yoga enthusiast, feminist, hardcore porn star — meet Tasha Reign, the most dynamic and multi-dimensional new star in entertainment. Long before becoming sexually empowered through adult movies, Tasha found herself in front of the camera on the third season of MTV’s "Laguna Beach." Realizing her love for the spotlight, Tasha began dancing regularly at gentlemen’s clubs to the music of Warrant, Kid Rock, and Def Leppard, while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies from UCLA. The 5' 5" SoCal beauty was featured in Playboy’s 2010 "Girls of the Pac-10" and named the May 2011 Penthouse Pet of the Month. A desire to further explore her sexuality led Tasha to adult films, where she is one of the most sought-after rising stars, appearing in movies for the top studios. Tasha’s acclaimed performances were recognized with a 2012 Best New Starlet nomination at the XBIZ Awards, where she also served as a Trophy Girl. Her photograph with former President Bill Clinton at a fundraiser in Monaco went viral and led to Tasha being profiled by media around the world, including TMZ, Page 6, Inside Edition, Huffington Post, PerezHilton.com, and more. Noting her rising celebrity status and unique views on music, Rock Confidential magazine made Tasha a weekly reviewer. Porn, rock, and Tasha Reign are a platinum combination.
