Asa Akira (born Asa Takigami) is an American adult actress and model probably known for her hard-core sex scenes. CBNC placed her on its list “The Dirty Dozen: Porn’s Most Popular Stars” in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Asa Akira wrote on Twitter: “I have an award-winning a**hole.” The most memorable butthole compliment she got was “Your a**hole feels like a p*ssy.” She added that the largest thing she’s ever had in her butt was “Mandingo’s penis.” She also does not, she said, bleach her backside.
She said Asa is her real first name; Akira, however, is based on a Japanese manga series. She was born in New York City and lived in Japan from when she was 6 to 13. She is an only child.

In New York, she attended Washington Irving High School and graduated in 2004. After Asa Akira graduated, she worked as a dominatrix. Later, she worked as a stripper. It was after meeting Gina Lynn that she entered the porn biz in 2006 at the age of 20. She said, “I’ve always wanted to do porn! I don’t know why…maybe watched too much Howard Stern as a kid?”
She has a fleshlight made of her vagina. She said, “I’m secretly terrified it feels better than my actual vagina.” She is also working on a book that is scheduled for release in 2014.
In 2012 she married porn colleague and director Toni Ribas. She described her sexual orientation as “indefinable.” Asa Akira said on reddit that she will perform on camera “as long as people will watch me, honestly. When I first got in, I thought I’d just get it out of my system and do it for a couple years. Now I realize I just want to do this forever.”
She also turns down things in porn “all the time. I don’t do anything that requires me to degrade Asian culture. I don’t do ‘funny.’ When I’m shooting a scene, I want to feel sexy.”
As for having sex, Asa Akira said, “I’ve only f*cked two guys on camera that I put on my ‘no list’ on the way home. I’m easy, I can usually find something in anyone that turns me on.”
Her porn hero is Lisa Ann, and her non-porn hero is Tina Fey. Asa Akira splits her time between Los Angeles and New York.
