Sasha Grey is a former pornstar and is also known for her modeling, acting and her music which managed to appear in mainstream movies and on television shows. She was born March 14, 1988, in Sacramento, CA and grew up in North Highlands, which is a part of Sacramento. Sasha has Greek, Irish, Polish and an English heritage. Her home life was a relatively happy one although it did come with many of the anxieties faced by girls growing up around that time. When Sasha was still little, her parents got divorced and her mother remarried. She was raised by her step-father and mother then.
Sasha Grey is very intellectual and like most of that sort, she had a very hard time following the rules of elementary education. She attended four different high schools. One of the high schools Grey attended was Highlands High in North Highlands, where she held a 3.8 average. However, she was later home schooled. After graduating in 2005, which was one year early, she decided to pursue her career in the performing arts. Sasha worked as a bus girl at a local steak house in Sacramento to cover expenses. She worked there while she was attending Sacramento City College to study filming, dancing and acting.
While Sasha worked at the steak house, she also developed a work relationship with the steak house's cook. She was just 18 then, and her cook boyfriend was 26. Though Sasha had her first sexual experience at the age of 16, it was her cook boyfriend who introduced her to a variety of sexual activities including deviant sex acts and fetishes. Grey often encouraged the guy to do hardcore things to her that he didn't think she would enjoy. Sasha's favorite sexual activities at the time were anal, bondage and rough sex. Loving every minute of it, she also discovered her love for porn. They watched porn a lot. they even copied some of the sex styles and brought it into the bedroom.
A few months later after watching and copying a lot of porn, Sasha Grey made a decision that changed her life. She stated in an interview that it just clicked in her head and thought "This is what I am now going to do with my life." She thought that the fastest and easiest way for her to achieve her goal to become recognized in performing arts would be through porn. Grey was even inclined from the beginning that her rare sexual skills would make her famous.
So, working at the local steak house was a good thing for her. She managed to save money on her own to get a flight to Los Angeles and moved there to pursue her new dream. It was just a few months after her 18th birthday that things really started to happen. Yes, she went right into porn as soon as she could. She contacted a casting agent, Mark Spiegler, via the internet. He agreed to introduce Grey to the legendary John Stagliano. Spiegler stated that Sasha was available for various sexual acts which included: solo, girl on girl, boy on girl, anal, double penetration, group and interracial porn. Fortunately, at the time one of the girls needed to be replaced. So this first movie was Grey's big break in the porn industry. This is when she first toyed with the name Anna Karina before she actually decided to use "Sasha Grey". She took "Sasha" from the band member Sascha Konietzko and "Grey" from the novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray".
Her first scene was a gangbang with Rocco Siffredi, Jean Val Jean, Mark Davis, Mr. Pete, Chris Charming and Erik Everheard for the film "The Fashionistas 2". During this scene, Grey shocked everyone for requesting Rocco Siffredi to punch her in the stomach, which he declined. She later revealed on an interview that she's interested in bondage and S&M. Grey also says that she wants to be choked, slapped, and punched in the stomach as well as having her hair pulled. It turns out that she really can take scenes like that. In less than a year in the adult industry, she has made more than 70 films featuring some of the roughest stuff hardcore porn has to offer. If God created artichoke, Sasha Grey created the art of choke. Sasha stated that the only time she has to fake an orgasm is when she does a softcore movie. After 6 months being in the porn industry, she was featured in Los Angeles Magazine as the next Jenna Jameson. Sasha was even tagged as "The Dirtiest Girl in the World" by Rolling Stone.
If you still haven"t seen her in action, one glance at Grey's innocent face leaves you wondering if she's a deer lost in the headlights of the porn industry, but, her reason for choosing the adult industry is because she found porn to be boring and she wanted to be a part of making movies that would turn her on if she were watching them. According to her, another reason she in adult movies is to find someone who can push her limits and fulfill her deepest desires. Grey says that in her personal life, she's bisexual and that she's a fan of Belladonna (porn actress), with whom she had scenes with in "Fetish Fanatic" and the unreleased film "Awakening of Sasha Grey" where you'll see her act out all of her lesbian fantasies. In her personal life, she says that she likes using strap-ons. It's her favorite among the other sex toys. She also says that she hungers for all modes of sexual perversity, and that she's determined to be a commodity that fulfills everyone's fantasies.
Sasha Grey appeared on the The Tyra Banks show in February 2007 discussing teenagers in the sex industry. She later stated on her own site and on YouTube that the interview represented her poorly and the show's staff changed her hairstyle and clothing to make her look younger. There was speculation that the show was heavily manipulated through editing and that it did not properly portray Grey's defense of pornography as a career choice. The show was criticized for twisting Sasha Grey's depiction to increase its dramatic value toward the perversity of the porn industry.
Grey is an intellectual pornstar who has done virtually anything and everything that there is to be done sexually in front of the camera. She's just 21 and she's now a veteran to the adult film industry. Sasha is also famous for both her dirty talk and her deepthroat skills. Actually, she can keep a dick in her throat for 12.5 minutes. Grey is the most-shocking, business-savvy former pornstar that lives today..
