Who Is Asa Akira?
Whats Inside ?
Asa Takagami, aka Asa Akira, is a popular model, pornographic actress, and porn movie director. She does interviews on television and online from time to time. She managed to get into the industry after befriending a fellow porn actress named Gina Lynn (real name Georgina Lynn Guesby). Lynn encouraged Akira to get herself involved in the adult film industry.
It might seem bewildering for some, but Akira had always wanted to become an adult film actress and model, ever since she was young. While she grew up, she had hidden fantasies about earning cash and becoming rich through sex. She considered it as one of her biggest dreams.
Plenty of Akira’s successes is proven through several nominations and awards that she has received throughout her career. Some of these include Female Performer of the Year, Porn Star of the Year, and New Starlet of the Year, among others. Akira has also been included in plenty of Top 10 Hottest Porn Stars and Top 50 Hottest Asian Po*n Stars lists. Other prominent honors include being placed in the list of Porn Stars Who Could Be The Next Sasha Grey, Top 10 Innovative Porn Stars, and The Dirty Dozen. Among the lists mentioned, Akira has been placed in either the top five, or is usually the winner of the list. Therefore, this is proof that she is a popular star in her chosen profession. She is surely bound to get more popular as she just started directing her own porn films. According to Akira, her idol in the porn industry is Lisa Ann (real name Lisa Ann Corpora), while actress, comedian, and Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey is her favorite outside of the industry. Akira also considers herself as a feminist. She claims to be bisexual, but is still “uncertain” about her real orientation. She also has a penchant for liking men and “androgynous girls”.

Akira ended up enrolling in Washington Irving High School located in Gramercy Park. Later on, she moved to City-As-School for her senior year.
Her first venture into the adult industry was at nineteen, when she started working as a professional dominatrix. Then she left her job and began earning money as a stripper at New York’s Hustler Club. She waited until she turned 20 to apply for several roles in porn films. During her early years as a professional porn actress, at least one out of three scenes that she did involved some sort of Asian fetish role.
Later on in her career, Akira co-hosted the 30th Annual AVN Awards together with comedian April Macie and fellow porn actress Jesse Jane (real name Cindy Taylor). In the same ceremony, she ended up winning the award for Best Female Performer. She initially did lesbian scenes in her first few films, but started doing more hardcore roles further into her career. One of her first scenes with a man was with porn actor Travis Knight in a film directed by her friend Gina Lynn (who was married to Knight at that time). Akira eventually signed a contract with Voyeur Media before becoming a freelance actress six months later.

According to Akira, her relationship with her husband is monogamous and healthy. She considers herself as a feminist. Akira also says that she has only dated fellow porn actors, so she wouldn’t have to explain her career choices to someone working outside the industry.
