Asa Akira in Steal the Moment
November 2, 2022
We’re beyond excited to welcome the Celebrity feature, Asa Akira, to Playboy Plus! As you likely already know, Asa is an award-winning adult star, author, director, Pornhub brand ambassador, mother, model, and so much more. “The first thing I’ll share about me is that I hate talking about myself,” laughs Asa as we sat down to get to know her better. “And I’m probably terrible at doing so objectively. That said, I like to think that I’m funny, empathetic, and reliable— or rather, those are the three things I strive to be the most.” From New York City, Asa takes pride in where she calls home. “It’s still my favorite city in the world. I love that no matter how rich or successful you are, life is still a struggle,” she shares thoughtfully. “I think it creates a unique camaraderie that isn’t present in many places.” Asa has been in the adult industry for many years and isn’t slowing down soon. “I’m passionate about all things sex: doing it, talking about it, working toward normalizing it, and fighting for rights surrounding it,” says Asa. “I’ve been in sex work my whole adult life thus far, and I plan to do so for the rest of it.” She’s proud of the life she’s created for herself. “I’m proud that I’ve made it this far in life doing what I do,” she says. “I love that I get to explore my sexuality in a safe way. I love that I get to make a living doing what I love the most.” As for collaborating with us, it’s been in the works for some time. “Playboy is just one of those brands that have been a part of my brain map for as long as I can remember,” shares Asa. We worked together in New York City with the producer, Maddie Cordoba, capturing her. “It’s so cool to work with so many awesome women,” says Asa. “My day on set was so much fun!” Learn much more about Asa Akria through her Celebrity features right here on Playboy Plus.
