Lorelei Lee Revealed as the Madam X in the Stagliano Porn Trial; She Holds a NYU Masters Degree

Back story: www.adultfyi.com/read.php?ID=42922

from www.legaltimes.com – Her name is Lorelei Lee, and she’s a porn actress.

Lorelei Lee, of course, is a stage name. Just like Traci Lords and Kayla Kleevage. Lee starred in one of the films—“Jay Sin’s Milk Nymphos”—that is the centerpiece of the government’s prosecution of adult film producer John Stagliano.

Stagliano’s lawyers want to call Lee as a defense witness in federal district court in Washington, but there’s a problem: Lee doesn’t want to provide her real name.

Lee’s lawyer, Carmen Hernandez, a solo practitioner in Maryland, filed court papers today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia asking for a protective order to allow her to testify using her stage name.

Hernandez said Lee needs protection, but the attorney didn’t disclose in court documents the basis for the request other than saying that confidentiality will protect Lee from “explicit threats of danger.” The attorney said more information would be provided in a closed door hearing in the chambers of Judge Richard Leon. Hernandez was not immediately reached for comment.

In court papers, Hernandez argues that a trial judge has the authority to allow a witness to testify under a pseudonym as long as opposing counsel has enough information to allow effective cross examination. The government, according to Hernandez, has already been provided Lee’s real name.

“Permitting the witness to testify under her professional stage name will not interfere with the government’s ability to cross examine the witness or to impeach [her],” Hernandez said. “Rather, the use of a pseudonym merely shields the identity of a witness from the press and the public.”

Prosecutors are opposed to Lee’s request, according to Hernandez. But the government did not immediately file a response. Leon did not rule by this afternoon. Stagliano’s trial, which began Tuesday with opening statements, continues Thursday.

from the AdultFYI files – One of NYU’S newest grad students is better known for her XXX-tra curricular activities.

When she’s not in class, porn star Lorelei Lee jets to the West Coast to film skin flicks with some of the biggest names in the industry.

It’s a lifestyle Lee, 28, knows well.

The busty blond has been working in porn and juggling life as a student for nearly 10 years.

“It’s not weird anymore,” said Lee, a first-year student pursuing a master’s in fine arts. “I’ve just been doing this for so long.”

Still, the Buffalo native doesn’t spend much time with classmates. She fears even a question as simple as, ‘How was your weekend,’ could lead to some hairy conversations.

Though she may not know it, Lee’s classmates are big fans – of her decision to pursue a master’s.

“It’s wonderful,” said Ayesha Attah, 25, of Brooklyn. “Whatever experience you can draw on, you should. Hers is amazing.”

Michelle Kim Hall, 27, is equally supportive. “Good for her,” said Hall, of Los Angeles. “The woman who won the Oscars for best screenplay [Diablo Cody] was a stripper.”

Lee’s stories, based heavily on experiences in the porn business, have appeared in $pread magazine and the Denver Quarterly.

A 2008 graduate of San Francisco State University, Lee decided to pursue a master’s in creative writing on the advice of former professors, she said.

When the porn queen got the acceptance call from the head of NYU’s program, she was elated. “She said they were excited about my writing,” said Lee, dressed in a pink tank top, black mini-skirt and knee-high boots. “I don’t know if she says that to everybody, but it felt pretty good.”

Lee has been in more than 200 films since entering the porn business at age 19, and she’s been nominated for three Adult Video News Awards.

She gets paid up to $1,400 per day, and estimates she has made between $30,000 and $60,000 a year.

The worlds of academia and porn have collided awkwardly for Lee.

At a shoot in Los Angeles last month, a crew member asked the topic of a book she was reading. “Two misogynists looking for love,” Lee told him. “The same plotline of the movie.”

Lee isn’t quite sure what she wants to do after she graduates, but she doesn’t expect to leave the porn industry. “I still do get something out of my work in porn,” Lee said. “I think I’m good at it.”

She feels her skills carry over into her writing. “The ability to focus on what’s happening right at that moment,” Lee said. “In these fields, you have to have a lot of personal drive.”
