Conner’s a special case, of course — but he’s hardly alone. After the jump, six porn stars who’ve made their brains as big a draw as their bodies.

He sings, he dances, he composes original soundtracks (Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan), he builds cabins in the woods. And when he’s not doing that, he’s an acclaimed essayist (Laid Bare) and HuffPo guest blogger.
He writes and speaks about sexuality across the country. As the video sexpert for Logo, he counsels men with body dysmorphia, and helps aid the coming out process. He’s written for Salon, the Advocate and The Rumpus. He is REALLY intof anthroposophy, a philosophical system which postulates that spiritual life can be understood through use of the scientific method (I think).
The gay porn mogul and long-time Advocate columnist has elevated courting controversy to an erotic art. He’s an outspoken supporter of Israel, has toyed with becoming a gay Republican and even operated a fashion blog for a short period. His videos often start with sparring debates with his scene partners or new stars on subject ranging from New York culture to gay oppression. He’s spoken at Yale, Stanford, NYU and Oxford. He remade Fellini’s La Dolce Vita into a porno.
He makes art with his penis. He may or may not be a member of the communist party. He allows hair to grow on his balls. I love him.
Okay, so maybe he’s not an intellectual PER SE, but he has an amazing ass, and his name sounds an awful lot like JAMES FRANCO, who would fit here quite nicely.
He designs costumes, dabbles in performance art and plays the violin. He has a degree in anthropology. He likes to use words like marginalized and smokes cigarettes (probably Export As — very intellectual).
