i want to first take the time and thank you for featuring me on your site. i’ve followed you for quite some time and get a lot of insight on what’s going on in the industry based on your articles and interviews you have featured. To start things off my name is Meiko Askara. I’m an 18 yr. old half Japanese and Taiwanese sex fiend. I have been in the adult porn industry since turning 18 five months ago. I was born in northern California and I’m a full time college student but still maintain a busy adult modeling and shooting schedule. when not going to school or performing my scenes I spend a lot of time at home with my dog coco playing on my Nintendo 3DS or on-line playing league of legends under the user name celesti cat. I’m kind of a nerd. I also am an avid painter and gardener. I’m a quite person when you first meet me but have a crazy side a lot of people are thrown off by when they view my adult film scenes.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
I’ve always wanted to know what it would be like to be filmed having sex ever since discovering my sexuality and a full body orgasm. When I turned 18 I spoke to a close friend of mine who used to work in the industry and he turned me onto kink.com a local porn producer in the bay area that produces hardcore BDSM videos. My first industry scene was a hardcore gangbang with four pro’s in the business. I did double penetration and anal. Why hold back I wanted to make a huge entry into the scene and what I performed on scene is the same kinds of activities I do in my personal life. The person who introduced me is now my manager. I’m having a blast so far.
What would you say is the biggest misconception that people have about the adult industry?
I guess one of the biggest misconceptions is how long a porn shoot actually takes even for a 5-10 minute scene. Between make-up, wardrobe and the crew setting up equipment it can be an all-day affair. It’s a lot of work. Porn talent, both male and female, get underrated. We work our butts off not just getting it in our butts. Male talent gets extra props. I’m glad I’m a girl. I don’t think I could keep wood for eight hours. Another misconception is that there is this belief that female pornstars are forced into the industry or we are mindless sluts who don’t know better. I’m quite educated and control every aspect of my carrier. It’s actually quite empowering and just cause I fuck on film doesn’t mean I’m easy. I embrace my sluttiness but I’m very selective with it.
Any thoughts of creating a members site and if so, what can your fans expect to find on that site?
I’m currently in the process of trying to find the right web designer. Creating my own site can be quite costly to create but I’m not going to do a cheesy half-assed site. If I’m going to do it I’m going to do it big and do it right the first time. Of course my site will feature me, the lovely miss Meiko, but also some porn star friends of mine doing all kinds of things and variations of nasty. I will also have links set up to my merchandizing store and a phone number to call to talk to me live and in person, for a small fee of course. A girl has gotta make a living. I’m looking for investors to start the site and share in the revenue of course.
What would you say is your favorite scene or movie that you have been in and why?
My favorite scene or movie that I have been in so far was my first scene ever in the industry. That was my hardcore gangbang for kink.com with the double penetration and anal. It allowed me to push myself both physically and mentally and try things I haven’t had the opportunity too in the pass. It allowed me to explore my wild side while still being in a safe environment and still being in control of the situation.
What advice would you give someone that is thinking about joining the adult industry?
Best advice I can give someone especially the young girls out there is be sure you are in touch with your sexuality and don’t enter into this business if depending on a porn paycheck determines if you’re going to eat or be able to pay your rent. Yes the money is good but you need to be mentally stable and have a strong character to be able to say no at times when you’re approached with material that you may not be comfortable with. Also stay away from craigslist movie makers and producers. Approach the big guys first and ask lots and lots of questions. Don’t go in blind. After you get a good feel of the industry and feel like you’re ready, get yourself a good agent and manager. Make sure your agent is bonded and licensed and ask some of the agency girls what they think of their agent. Once you’re ready remember to always stay true to yourself first and foremost.
Who would you say are your idols, either in the industry or outside the industry?
I would have to say Sasha Grey. I admire the strength she has as a women being in charge of her own sexuality while at the same time taking her scenes to the next level. Her education has allowed her to cross over as a mainstream actress, model, author and musician. She is very empowering and independent which I respect and admire. but she is one of many in the industry I want to give props too others such as Asa Akira, Lorelei Lee and Princess Donna are some other women I have a lot of respect for and of course my mother. That’s a no-brainer,
Are there any acts that you haven’t performed yet that you are thinking that you may do in the coming year?
I want to try an all-black guy gangbang with some real hardcore studs. I’ve been getting a lot of requests to do that in a scene just waiting for a producer to book me for it.
I couldn’t find anything on this but have you thought of feature dancing as well as performing in movies?
Yes and yes. I’ve been offered a couple gigs already to do feature dancing at some upscale gentlemen’s clubs in San Francisco, California but between shooting my scenes and school it’s just a matter of finding the time to do it. I’m going to be in my first full length indie film this summer. It’s still being edited and I’m not allowed to release the details but in a nut shell I play a sexy lesbian porn star turned psycho killer. I’m in love with a fellow adult actress and aid her in killing her husband.
Who are some of the people that you really want to work with but haven’t as of yet?
To be honest I don’t have anyone in particular in mind although I think a scene with Alina Li would be hot. Two hot steamy teen Asians licking each other up and down. How could you go wrong with that?
What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?
Sleep. Seriously thou as I mentioned I paint. I like to get into my own world and create the world as I see it in my own mind not necessarily as it is in real life. I am an avid gardener as well. I also collect stuffed alpaca’s in all different colors. Hint hint, my Amazon link is on my twitter.
My first magazine layouts are coming out in September for Hustler’s Barely Legal and Taboo. I have a featured speaking role in an upcoming penthouse production called Asian Sorority Sex Club, soon to be released. I’ve also been doing a lot of work with Evil Angel Video and New Sensation. You can go to their web sites to see my scenes. Being so new a lot of my material hasn’t been published yet and I have been asked not to talk about the projects till there released. You can see a lot of my BDSM work thou on kink.com. Or Google me or follow me on twitter @meikoaskara. I also do custom videos and have a video store on customs4u just search for my name under the models section. Shout out to my OC Modeling family too. You guys rock! Thank you for having me. I plan on being around for quite some time.
