Asa Akira is a famous Japanese American porn actress and model. She was born with the name Asa Takigami in the winter of January 2nd, 1986 in New York City, NY. Asa is a petite girl with a beautiful body featuring 32 C breasts with a beautiful small ass. Her mother was originally from Osaka and her father was from Tokyo, but her parents live in Yokohama. Though she was born in New York City, her family still moved back to Japan when she was 6 right up until 13. For school, she attended prestigious American private schools until her teenage years. In 1999, Asa went back to New York and lives there to this day in Brooklyn.
She attended Washington Irving High School in New York City from 2001 to 2002 and graduated high school in 2004. She says that she was a rebellious child and ran away from home often. She did a lot of drugs and her favorite was "Special". Akira eventually grew out of doing drugs, sometime after her teen years.
At the age of 21, Asa Akira became a stripper in a Hustler Club but she found it very boring because she would just stand on the stage naked and the crowd wouldn't interact much. In 2006 to 2007, she was a regular on the "Bubba the Love Sponge" radio show for about a year and was known as the "Show Whore". She often contributes perverted contents to the program. Eventually, Akira got bored. It's a good thing she met Gina Lynn.
Fucking in front of an audience is what Asa Akira really wanted, to fulfill her desire for excitement. So meeting Gina Lynn answered her prayers. Gina Lynn had started her own company and wanted to get famous, so she cast Asa as one of the primary fresh faces in porn which helped her launched the company. Akira began performing hardcore x-rated movies in 2006, at the age of 20. She started doing lesbian porn scenes mostly with Gina in Gina Lynn Productions.
Her very first guy - girl scene was with Travis Knight, for Gina Lynn Productions. Her career sky-rocketed fast, for she received multiple nominations for the first few roles that she did. Asa also worked for different companies such as Wicked Pictures, Digital Playground, Penthouse, Jules Jordan Video, Vivid and Hustler.
like any other pornstar, there's a story behind Asa Akira's stage name. Asa means "morning" in Japanese while her last name was taken from the famous film "Akira". She also used aliases Akira Lee and Akira when she performed in adult clubs.
Asa Akira has several tattoos including: birds on the back of her neck, 5 flowers on the left shoulder, cherry blossoms on left shoulder blade, a rose on the right shoulder blade, and a star inside the left forearm with the words "Mrs. Concepcion" on the right ankle. Asa loves ladies and in fact, she has plenty of lesbian scenes where she dykes out with the sexiest pornstars in the porn business. Though, she confirmed that she's bisexual in the sense that other chicks turn her on sexually, she prefers actual relationships with men.
Because of her good performance and her small stature, Asa Akira gained thousands of fans. This Asian babe simply loves to get wild on film. Akira has performed incredible facials, blowjobs, deepthroats, lesbian scenes and foot jobs. She says she loves anal sex and DP.
Asa's popularity is getting serious publicity now especially after she won 5 AVN awards at the 2011 show. She also has been nominated for several AVN Awards in such categories as Best Actress, Best Couples Sex Scene, Most Outrageous Sex Scene, and Best New Starlet. Asa won for Best Anal and Best Deep Throat scene. Most of her award nominations are because for her role in David Aaron Clark's 2009 Film "Pure".
Between 2011 and 2012, Asa Akira was honored by Elegant Angel as one of the top 7 pornstars on the world and was cast in a film with Lexi Belle, Kristina Rose, Kagney Linn Karter, Gracie Glam, Jayden Jaymes, and Bobbi Starr.
In Akira's personal life, she says she's really picky with who she spends her time with. In fact, she was only rumored to have dated 4 people, namely: Julian Rios(pornstar), Spice Boy (radio personality), Hammil (radio personality), and 25 Cent (radio personality). Akira always brings her teddy bear with her, and she had it ever since she was born. Asa reads every night, her favorite book is Invisible Monster and her favorite novelist is Chuck Palahniuk. Akira's biggest fear is to get fat. Her ideal man is funny and taller than her. She also says, "I like body hair. If you have it, don't shave it." She also revealed that Lexington Steele remains the biggest thing she ever had in her pussy, even including monster cock sex toys.
As a pornstar, Asa Akira has tried almost all sexual positions and yet her favorite sexual position is, missionary. She also has mentioned that she's right handed, and uses her left hand for masturbation. She stated that she cums from clitoral stimulation and she cums much harder from actual penetration. She enjoys being double penetrated the most. And during real porn films, she has no ability to control whether or not she squirts. Asa is very fluent in speaking Japanese, but she refuses to speak the language in her porn scenes for it might cause a disgrace to her family.
Since she's from New York City, Akira says that her favorite city would be of course New York City, for the reason that the city is open 24 hours and it's a convenient place to live. She has also revealed that a fan gave her a Mac Book Air and it's the nicest thing a fan had given her. One reasons Asa Akira has a good sense of humor is because she grew up around boys.
Between Facebook and Twitter, Asa Akira prefers Twitter because she's on it all the time and she's not really into Facebook. She thinks that people should shut up about religion and politics because it causes problems. She also stated that off camera she doesn't really have a lot of sex. As for Japanese performers, Asa likes Hitomi Tanaka and Maria Ozawa.
