Porn star Nikki Benz, the huge Rupert Murdoch-owned social website dominated by teenagers, is being used by porn stars to ply their wares with young Net users.

According to a report at the website Hollywood Wiretap, porn stars are now using MySpace to promote themselves just like music groups have done for years.

Stars with pages include Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick and Nikki Benz, as well as porn industry trade publication Adult Video News. Some have links to the women’s official websites, which include images, videos and sex toys.

Hollywood Wiretap reports that while the average MySpace user has 68 “friends,” connected to his or her page, Jameson has 406,571 and Patrick 56,688.

As WorldNetDaily reported, MySpace already is under scrutiny for being linked to crimes against young people who divulge too much information about themselves on their pages.

Murdoch sealed the deal for his NewsCorp to acquire and its parent, Intermix Media, for $580 million in July.

Besides being used by pornographers, MySpace is serving as a recruitment tool for jihadists who post images of al-Qaida leaders Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and glorify martyrdom.
