Parents of some Brooklyn, New York grade schoolers are furious after a curious mix up with a DVD player resulted in their kids getting some very graphic sex education during a school film festival. Some kindergarten, first- and fifth-grade students were settling in to watch the popular movie "Camp Rock" when things took a decidedly X-rated turn. Instead of Jonas, they got Jameson. As in well-known porn star Jenna Jameson.

The incident occurred on May 29 in the auditorium of PS 17 in Williamsburg. After a teacher turned on the DVD player and walked away to retrieve the family-friendly Disney film, a DVD that was already in the machine began playing. Up on the jumbo screen popped Jenna Jameson doing what she does best - being raunchy.

As panicked teachers yelled "Don't look at it!" and frantically tried to stop the movie, the children got an eyeful of a topless Jameson performing an undisclosed sex act. This went on for about 45 second before someone had the presence of mind to pull the plug on the DVD player and end the show.

Word of the incident quickly spread to the students' parents, who are understandably upset. "My son told his friend he saw a naked lady at school," says Rona Easton, whose 6-year-old son was in the audience. "I thought he was just being silly. It's appalling."

It is appalling and also a bit of a mystery. Just how did an X-rated film end up in the school's DVD player? The answer to that question may lie in determining just where the player was located prior to the film festival. Initial reports had it locked in Principal Robert Marchi's office, but parents were later told that it may have been moved to an unlocked office where it was accessible to anyone and everyone.

Of course, there are those who think the whole thing is funny and that the parents are making a big deal over nothing. But Principal Marchi isn't laughing and vows to get to the bottom of the matter. "A very explicit pornographic video came on the screen," he wrote in a note to parents. "This was extremely upsetting to the students and staff members in attendance . . . I am deeply sorry that this episode took place at PS 17. I know that we will make every effort to find out who was responsible for this despicable act."
