There are many smart porn stars out there, but few recognize this as they’re clouded by stereotypes. Deemed dumb and fake, porn stars are rarely looked upon in a positive light, especially concerning their intelligence. But the truth of the matter is, to be successful in porn, one must be a smart, savvy entrepreneur and must out-market competing porn stars to garner a more generous following to book enough gigs and solidify a full-time career in the uber-competitive industry. In addition to their entrepreneurial talents, many porn stars boast impressive degrees and resumes, therefore proving they’re smarter than most.

The following 11 actors are, based on education and success, the brightest porn stars in the industry.

Ron Jeremy

He may not be much to look at (not even in his heyday), but porn icon Ron Jeremy is one smart, talented cookie, boasting a master’s degree in special education at Queens College. In fact, he later taught special education classes in the New York City area after earning said degree. Even more, Jeremy is an accomplished violinist and classical musician. There’s ample proof of these musical talents online, so if you would rather watch a clip of Jeremy wit his clothes on (don’t worry, most would) check out this one of him behind the piano.

A.J. Bailey
The World's Smartest Porn Stars
Hailing from Scotland, Bailey not only earned a master’s in anthropology but also a master’s in museum studies, where she attended the same Scottish university as Prince William. Apparently being an anthropologist and porn star wasn’t enough of a disparity to satisfy her resume.

Tera Patrick

In addition to being one of the most popular porn stars of all time, Tera Patrick has a degree in both nursing and microbiology and is a certified EMT. She’s also published a well-received book of memoirs and owns a production company called TeraVision Inc.

T.J. Hart
The World's Smartest Porn Stars
T.J. Hart is better than you. In fact, she’s better than all of us. Though some of the starlets in this article boast double majors, Hart figured she’d take things a step further by earning a triple major in psychology, sociology and art with a minor in early childhood education from the University of Colorado.

Shy Love

Love graduated high school at the ripe young age of 16, and went on to pursue an undergrad in accounting, followed by a master’s. While working full-time as a comptroller for a pet pharmaceutical company, Love figured she’d get her second master’s in taxation, attending night school. It should be noted that she managed to do all of this before the age of 25, and now runs a talent agency for adult entertainers.

Laurie Wallace
The World's Smartest Porn Stars
As the former political columnist for Hustler Magazine, it would make sense that the adult actress Laurie Wallace graduated with a double-major that would include political science from Loyola College (the other major was German). While attending law school at George Washington University, Wallace was snatched up by a modeling agency, and eventually decided porn was a better career fit for her than law.

Joanna Angel

With a degree in English literature and a minor in film studies from Rutgers University, Angel has made such a name for herself in the industry, that you’d assume she graduated from an Ivy League business program. As the creator of Burning Angel, a film production company, Angel showcases her chops in the hundreds of adult films she directs, produces and acts in. She was also the lauded advice columnist for Spin Magazine, has her own brand of Fleshlight and sweeps the annual AVN awards every year, with almost 10 trophies to her name.

Lorelei Lee
The World's Smartest Porn Stars
Creative catalyst Lorelei Lee pursued her master’s in creative writing at New York University and was awarded a prestigious National YoungArts Foundation scholarship in response to her creative talents.

Sasha Grey

With a reported IQ of 140, Sasha Grey doesn’t have much to offer in terms of education, but has proven herself to be quite the academic when penning articles one would find in upper division undergraduate courses on topics like existentialism, German expressionism and French New Wave.

Nina Hartley
The World's Smartest Porn Stars
Legendary porn icon Nina Hartley is a respected, sex-positive feminist and sex educator. As somebody who’s had the opportunity to interview her, the sexual knowledge this woman boasts is nothing short of astounding. She sits on the board of directors of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, fighting against sexual repression, and graduated with a degree in nursing from San Francisco State University. As a nod to her knowledge, Hartley was the authority elected to appear on “Oprah” back in the ’90s in front of legions of angry women to defend the porn industry.

Asia Carrera
The World's Smartest Porn Stars
A piano prodigy as a child, Carrera had performed not once, but twice at Carnegie Hall before she turned 15. At 16, she taught English at Tsuruga College in Japan, and was awarded a full academic scholarship to Rutgers University where she majored in Japanese and business but dropped out. Before you discount her as your standard college dropout, the adult actress reportedly boasts an IQ of 156 (average is between 90 and 100), with Einstein scoring only four points higher.
