Asa Akira, whose real name is Asa Takigami, was born on January 3, 1986, in New York, to a family of Japanese descent. From the age of 6 to 13 she lived in Japan, where she attended an American school. She made her porn debut in 2006 at the age of 20. Started her career working as a model and then did a few scenes with women for Gina Lynn Productions. Has been doing porn with men since 2008. Her first boy scene was with Travis Knight for Gina Lynn Productions.
Asa Akira is not only good looking but she also does her job well. The first film in which she agreed to anal sex and double penetration was Asa Akira Is Insatiable. And she liked it so much that Asa now considers ‘double penetration’ as her favourite pose. With her acting abilities, Akira has good potential to star in porn of various genres.
One very interesting characteristic of Asa Akira is that she shows some affection in sex scenes for the guys she is starring with. This is evident in the way she touches them and the way she looks at them. In many of her scenes, Asa smiles at guys during sex and gently kisses them on the lips.
Some other Asian porn stars also show affection for guys. But among European stars, this kind of affection from ladies is almost non-existent. In some scenes, ladies give kisses to their boyfriends, but this is usually the man’s initiative, not the girl’s. Which leaves some doubt as to whether the girl really really likes the guy, or if she’s just starring with him because she doesn’t have much of a choice.
But with Asa Akira, you won’t have any doubts about that. That’s what ultimately makes Asa such a hot porn star. There are many very beautiful ladies in porn, but only very few of them, like Asa Akira, actively try to show sympathy towards their partners.
During her career in the porn industry, Asa has starred for studios such as Digital Playground, Wicked, Penthouse, Jules Jordan Video, Hustler and Vivid.
In 2011 she was voted number 6 in Complex magazine’s list of the ’50 Hottest Asian Porn Stars of All Time’.
In December 2012, she married porn actor and director Tony Ribas.
Asa Akira has starred in 403 porn films as of 2014.
