How long will we be telling you that porn stars are just like you, with all your frailties, passions, cat pictures, and compulsions to blog about your lunch? Until you believe it, that’s when. And this also applies to your shared, sexy love of college basketball.
With March Madness winding down, the San Fernando Valley’s greatest natural resource — its porn performers — are cheering on their teams in the only way they know how: Appropriately and with their parts covered.
Tasha Reign was UCLA’s resident out and proud porn star when she was a student there and, now that she’s a graduate she can still rock a Bruins shirt (if not pants). (Photo via www.Twitter.com/TashaReign)
Kendra Sunderland may not be a porn star but her risque antics in the library stacks of Oregon State University brought her the kind of fame porn performers dream of. No longer a student at the school for that very reason, the “Library Girl” is still a Beaver to look out for. (Photo via Kezi.com)
While Mindi Mink may work exclusively with women in her porn career, she has a hot spot for Sun Devils. Personally I like that she eschews the porn star heels to show her devotion in this photo. (Photo via www.Twitter.com/MindiMink & www.Twitter.com/GF_Films)
Lexington Steele worked as a Wall Street broker before he became one of the world’s most famous male porn stars, but whether he’s been chasing green, in the red, or in the black, he’s always been orange. (Photo via www.Twitter.com/LexSteele11)
Just a few months ago, Mia Khalifa was your average Florida State fan slinging hamburgers. She’s only been in a few movies, but Khalifa brings the same enthusiasm to her adult entertainment duties as she does for her Seminole fandom. (Photo via BroBible.com)
Like Kendra Sunderland, Belle Knox is a woman whose college affiliation went hand in hand with her appeal to fans of nudity. The “Duke Porn Star” parlayed being outed as a porn actress by a classmate into worldwide attention within weeks.
Nyomi Banxxx may be “The Black Lesbian Next Door” (that’s her latest movie) but she’s also been a Duke fan longer than this list’s other resident Duke Porn Star. (Photo via www.Twitter.com/NyomiBanxxx)
Casey Calvert is one of our favorite porn stars and, though she gets up to some intensely dirty things on screen, her love for the Gators is downright wholesome (if also pantsless). (Photo via www.Twitter.com/CaseyCalvertxxx)
I’ll be honest: I can’t tell what college basketball team Isis Taylor is rooting for here. Am I dreaming too big to hope there’s a team called the Thighmasters? And I’m pretty sure that’s a football on her bed. But one thing is certain: She looks like a modern update of that Farrah Fawcett poster my uncle had on his wall, so whatever sportsball team she likes is fine by me.

(Update: Someone just told me it was USC.)
Jeremy Long might be this list’s most educated member (our attorneys advise us to add “no pun intended”). The UC Berkeley Law student is a Golden Bears fan as well as one of very few Asian male porn performers. (Photo via DailyCal.org)
So dear to our hearts (and the hearts of all true Oklahomans) is Jesse Jane that we immediately know who is the internationally-known pornstar in this picture and who is not. (Photo via Uproxx.com & www.Twitter.com/JesseJane
Finally, Joslyn James is way more than a dalliance on Tiger Woods’ way to tabloid stardom; her scene in the movie “Killers” is Crimson Tide even more earth-shaking than her beloved team. I like this side-by-side picture a lot. Would I wreck my life for this person? I don’t know — I’m not a golfer.(Photo via 247sports.com)
We know that most of these teams didn’t make it all the way (sorry, Mia), but if there’s anything we can do to comfort you, just let us know.
