One of the most acclaimed adult film performers of the 21st Century, 2013 AVN Female Performer of the Year Asa Akira entered 2014 as the latest addition to Wicked Pictures’ elite cadre of contract superstars. This seductive Eurasian beauty’s passion, intelligence and sharp wit have made her a favorite of fans and critics alike over the last several years. In 2011, her many industry trophies included no less than five from AVN alone: Best All-girl Three-way, Best Anal Scene, Best DP Scene, Best Three-way Sex Scene and Fan Favorite Movie. She capped the year off with the Urban X Award for Porn Star of the Year.
2012 saw her reaching a new personal best with seven awards from AVN, including Best Anal Scene, Best All Sex Release, Best DP Scene, Best Group Scene, Best Solo Sex Scene, Best Tease Performance and Best Three-way Sex Scene. She also earned three Performer of the Year trophies – from AEBN, XBIZ and XRCO respectively.
She added a new title to her list of accomplishments in 2013 when she became AVN’s Female Performer of the Year. She also earned five other high-profile awards – Best Showcase Movie, Best DP Scene, Best Group Sex Scene, Best POV Scene, and Three-way Sex Scene. She ended the year by receiving the XRCO’s Performer of the Year award for the second year in a row.
After co-starring in “the” adult blockbuster of 2013, Brad Armstrong’s “Underworld,” Asa formally joined the Wicked family. Armstrong directed her first Wicked vehicle, “Asa Gets Wicked,” and she’s since co-starred in the director’s big-budget New York-set romance “Aftermath.”
In addition to harvesting copious critical acclaim for her film work, Asa is diligently expanding her career in unique and inventive ways. She’s been a Fleshlight Girl since 2011, and her first book, “Insatiable – Porn: A Love Story” (which she describes as "autobiographical but not an autobiography”), was released under the Grove Press imprint in Spring 2014. Her 90 minute podcast, “DVDASA” has reached #1 on iTunes in the health category. The 90-minute episodes offer advice relating to sexuality, career and relationships.
Appropriately enough for someone so accustomed to the awards show stage, Asa announced her Wicked signing at the First Annual Sex Awards after receiving their Porn Star of the Year trophy. “I just signed an exclusive contract with Wicked Pictures, so you will now see me exclusively in Wicked movies,” she told the cheering crowds. “I have wanted to be a Wicked Girl since the day I started in this business, and I couldn’t be happier!”
