Despite What You May Have Heard, an ASU Freshman in "Reality Porn" Movie Didn't Lose Her $33,000 Scholarship

That's Elizabeth Hawkenson. And that's her ASU ID card.

​The girl to the left is 18-year-old Elizabeth Hawkenson. She's an ASU freshman from Copperas Cove, Texas, studying geology at ASU's Tempe campus. She's attending school on a $33,000 academic scholarship. She was also featured in a "reality porn" video, currently making the rounds on the Internet, in which she proudly displays her ASU student ID card.

Hawkenson appeared in a video for the porn Web site Backroom Casting Couch. If you're unfamiliar with the site, you're a liar here's how it claims things work: a guy puts out an ad for adult models. Chicks respond thinking it's only going to be some nude photos, but the guy holding the audition gradually talks the girls into having sex with him. He tells them he can make them a porn star, who earns $5,000 a day.

 The guy isn't a casting director, and there is no job. The audition supposedly is a hoax just to get the girls to have sex with the guy on a couch in a sleazy Scottsdale office.

It's portrayed as though the girls have no idea what they're getting themselves into, which, we were heartbroken to find out, is bullshit.

"The whole thing is scripted," Hawkenson tells New Times. "I knew going in there it was for sex. I knew what I was doing -- I knew I was getting paid."
