Judging by her photo in the Daily News, grad student Lorelei Lee looks like any other woman at NYU. But what sets her apart is her unorthodox way of paying for the university's sky-high tuition, by performing in porn movies. Lee, who takes her name from Marilyn Monroe's character in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, has been working in the adult entertainment industry since she was 19, and has 200 films under her, um, belt. She's also a graduate from San Francisco State University, and is now working on her Master's in Fine Arts at NYU. But what do her classmates think about her XXX-tra curricular activities?

"It's wonderful," Ayesha Attah, 25, tells the News. "Whatever experience you can draw on, you should. Hers is amazing." And since Lee earns upwards of $1,000 per production day, maybe she won't be financially ruined by the time NYU's done with her. But regardless of her fancy degree, she plans to stick with the porn as long as she can, even after graduation: "I still do get something out of my work in porn. I think I'm good at it." At press time, it was not possible to corroborate Lee's self-assessment of her work.
