Belle Knox, a porn star and Duke University student, has been hired to be the keynote speaker at “Sex Week” sponsored by Lafayette College in the heart of Pennsylvania’s conservative Bible Belt.

Knox skyrocketed to national attention after she was outed by a fellow Duke student after anonymously writing an article about porn in the school newspaper.

Knox, real name Miriam Weeks, said in a statement she hopes “students leave with a new perspective.”

The school is located in Easton, a hard-scrabble area of Pennsylvania at the confluence of the Delaware and Lehigh rivers about 55 miles west of Philadelphia. It’s noted as a transportation hub for coal and steel.

It has sponsored “Sex Week” for at least the past six years, according to its Web site. The series of presentations is designed to bring students closer to their sexuality, according to the school event Web site.

Among other speakers, Dr. Broke DeSipio, a certified sexologist, will talk to students about the art of achieving an orgasm. Her presentation is titled “The Big O: How to Get It.”

“Magenta and Friends” will make a presentation on “The Art of Drag” and other sessions will focus on sex and growing older and sex with disabilities.

In light of the popularity of “50 Shades of Grey,” a sex educator and professional “Dominant” will also give a lecture on kinky sex, sado-masochism and BDSM.

The week-long event also includes a raffle, giveaways, something called “Condom Bingo” and a speed-dating session.
