WASHINGTON – Just on the heels of Harvard University's new nudie magazine, a business student from the University of Washington has gone public with how he used his business savvy to launch a highly lucrative porn empire called DormAngels.com.

With no shortage of female talent strolling around campus, Brett Jennings, 25, started his porn career with just a few thousand dollars in his pocket, a partner named Jeff, and hundreds of cash-strapped co-eds eager to make $100 an hour posing nude and semi-nude.

After a brief stint working for an adult search engine, which Jennings claims was a "great crash course in the online adult industry," he returned to UW to finish his degree.

Jennings says he owes his success to his solid business school education, strong ethics, and some favorite professors.

"I still use many of their lessons every day," Jennings told the Daily. "Even though naked girls might be on the screen, most of my day is spent doing the same basic tasks any small business owner engages in: working on new projects, accounting, marketing, etc."

Now an alumnus of the university, Jennings attributes his meteoric rise in the ranks of online adult porn to applying some fundamental business tactics to the thriving Internet sex industry that is always looking for content featuring college-age girls.

"Looking around campus there were 20,000 cute college girls, most of whom were complaining about not having any money," Jennings told the Daily. "I had $12,000, but I knew that wasn't going to get me through two school years, and Jeff had a digital camera that was a present from his parents. It was an obvious equation."

After a rocky start and an initial period of low profits, Jennings started grossing more money than most of his business school peers would see for decades in more traditional careers.

Jennings and his partner recruit University of Washington talent through the school newspaper and other alternative papers.

According to the Daily, Jennings and his partner recently launched another adult website MidwestMandy.com, which focuses on one single girl and already equals the amount of subscribers as DormAngels.com.

The business partners plan to soon launch a college gay porn site, although that idea is still in development.
