Early life of Asa Akira
This Asian busty beauty was born in Manhattan, New York on 3rd January 1985 to a Japanese Family. She went to Tokyo at the age of 9 and came back to New York at the age of 13. She moved to Downtown Brooklyn when she came back. She believes that she is a girl accustomed to city life and hated nature. Living in the crowded streets of New York gives her a sense of security that she likes.
Asa Akira was born Asa Takigami but she decided to keep her first name which means “morning” in Japanese and the last name was taken by anime called “Akira” hence her stage name became Asa Akira. She is married to Toni Ribas, who is also a pornographic actor and director like herself.
Asa always fantasized about porn growing up as she always wanted to explore her sexuality. Asa says she was a good student until she got into her rebellious teen phase and got involved in weed and boys. She graduated from City As School and started working as a Dominatrix at a Dungeon in New York right after. Little after a year she went into stripping. She used to appear on a radio show called “Bubba the Love Sponge” and was famous as “The Snow Whore.” She met Gina Lynn on the same show, and she offered her to do some porn with her. She gladly accepted, and her first girl/girl scene was with Lynn’s production house. This is how Asa’s journey began.
