Porn is about the only way for women to make more money than men.

I am Sasha Grey, and when I turned eighteen I left high-school and decided to pursue different career opportunities. I worked as secretary, as teacher. I worked as a waitress. As a nurse I actually made more money than the doctors.

Within a year, these jobs not only brought me respect, but also a lot of money. I like really dirty things. I have been hanged upside down, and tied up. And have a twelve inch dildo stuck in my ass. With my mouth gagged. I am proud of this.

Something I chose to do. Who I am. I am Sasha Grey.

Sasha Grey for the 2012 Equal Pay Day

This clip features 23-year old Sasha Grey. Sasha is a handsome, intelligent and independent young woman who recently starred in the series Entourage and The Girlfriend Experience, a movie by Steven Soderbergh. But before this, she was also the most well-known pornstar of the last 15 years. It was no coincidence that she joined the porn industry at 18: it is one of the few fields where women earn more than men. So she actively contributed to closing the wage gap.

In the web commercial we see Sasha in a role she plays well: that of the sweet young woman. She tells us the story of her early professional life. She tells us about the choice she made to leave school aged only 18 years old and to take on a different sort of career. She tells us she earned a decent living. And then the commercial changes in mood. And she tells us with the same sweet smile about the things she had to do to earn all this money. Tough things. Things you wouldn’t do for all the money in the world. While you’re trying to comprehend what she has just said, the commercial tells us:

Porn is about the only way for women to make more than men.
