Asa Akira is on a mission: To improve the sex lives of men & women around the world…and if anyone can do it, it’s probably her.
“I believe I was put on this earth to teach people how to fuck!” So says Asa Akira, the tiny, half-naked porn star sitting beside me on the same bed she just used to shoot a sizzling lesbian sex scene. And despite giggling as she says this, something tells me she means it.
With smoldering eyes, silky-smooth skin & long black hair, Asa Akira is one of the hottest porn stars working today. She has close to 350,000 twitter followers and is one of the most googled (and highest paid) adult performers on the planet. In 2011, Complex magazine ranked her at #4 in their list of “The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars Right Now,” and her popularity has only increased since then.
This year, in addition to co-hosting the 30th Annual AVN Awards (the adult industry’s version of the Oscars), she took home the show’s top honor, Female Performer of The Year – only the second asian starlet to ever win that award (the first was the legendary Asia Carrera). She also co-hosts a highly rated weekly podcast, has directed her first adult film, and is currently writing a novel.
But her real passion, it seems, is teaching. However, it’s safe to say you never had a Sex Ed teacher like this in school. She takes a much more – how do you say it? – hands-on approach. As in, totally hardcore, explicit demonstrations that take you step-by-step through all the positions, tricks, and techniques that have made her one of the most popular porn stars of the modern age.
We caught up with Asa on the set of her new instructional video series, “Asa Akira Teaches Sex,” where she was eager to share some of her filthiest sex secrets….
Asa: Yes! I’m so excited about it! I’ve always wanted to do one but the way it happened was so random…I won’t get into it too much, let’s just say I met the right person, they were impressed with my skills, and I ended up here! But it’s something I’ve thought about doing for a long time, because I believe everybody should be having more sex…and better sex! And I’m just the person to teach them, because let’s face it, there aren’t too many people who know more about sex than me.
Asa: Of course! I mean, I take sex very seriously. That’s why I got into this line of work in the first place. I LOVE sex, and there’s such a HUGE difference between good sex & bad sex – especially for a woman. If you can’t make a girl come, forget it. There’s just no excuse any more, guys – this isn’t the 50s!
BUT…it’s pretty easy for a guy to get better in bed just by learning a few things…certain positions, for example, that are better for giving a girl an orgasm, or little foreplay tips I’ve picked up over the years that make a woman much more likely to come. But guys DO need a little instruction, you know? Because they’re not gonna just figure this stuff out on their own. They need a woman to teach them, and preferably one with a lot of experience & expertise…like yours truly!
MaxMan: Tell us a little more about how you got into the adult business in the first place.
Asa: I was 19, living in Brooklyn. I was literally walking down the street and a guy approached me & asked me if I wanted to “model” for him. I knew exactly what he meant, and I said “Yes” because I had always secretly fantasized about being in porn. I started out as a dominatrix, then very quickly got into stripping & then doing films.
I already knew a lot about sex, but as I did more films, I learned all kinds of crazy tricks & techniques. To be honest, I never knew how many different types of orgasms a woman could have! The female body is a mysterious thing….not like a guy, getting a guy off is pretty easy. A woman takes a little more work…but if you know a few tricks, you can give her an orgasm that’s literally 50X more powerful than a man’s. Seriously! And if you can do that, then trust me, she’ll NEVER leave you! I should know, I’ve had my share of jerk boyfriends who I just couldn’t leave because they knew how to fuck me…
MaxMan: You’ve accomplished a lot so far – starring in over 300 films, directing….what are you proudest of?
Asa: Well, I was super excited to win Performer of the Year at this year’s AVNs! Because I really do love my job! But actually, I’d say getting to do this new instructional series, “Asa Akira Teaches Sex.” Just because it’s something I’ve thought about for a long time, and because it’s a chance to really make a difference in people’s lives. I mean, I think I could really save some relationships with this, I’m totally serious…bad sex is probably the #1 reason why marriages fail. If a guy can learn how to truly satisfy his woman, she’s gonna be happier, she’s gonna be more eager to please him in every way! Better sex means happier, healthier people, and I’m excited to be able to share some of my knowledge with the world to make it a better place!
MaxMan: Can you give us one tip that a guy could use if he wanted to start having better sex tonight?
Asa: You’ve got to be willing to try some extreme stuff – and some advanced techniques – to keep a girl interested. For example, this foreplay secret will give a girl a MASSIVE orgasm if you do it right. Get her on her back & get between her legs. Above the clitoris is what’s called the clitoral hood. Using one hand, gently spread her lips apart & pull back the clitoral hood.
Then, using your other hand, begin stroking the space BETWEEN her clitoris & her clitoral hood VERY LIGHTLY, with the tip of your finger. Keep the pressure & the speed constant for about 3 minutes, then change it up. Go faster for about 3 minutes. Then slow down again.
After about 15 minutes of this, she’ll start to have one of the most intense orgasms of her life. There’s literally nothing like it!
MaxMan: That sounds a little complicated…
Asa: It is! But the payoff is HUGE…she’ll be hooked on you for life if you give her one of these orgasms. And luckily, I demonstrate it all, step-by-step, in this new program I’m shooting. You’ll see it up close & personal and I guide you through it so it’s super easy to follow. And trust me, that’s just the beginning!
MaxMan: You’re working with mostly other girls in this video. Can you tell us what you love about having sex with other women?
Asa: Oh my god, EVERYTHING! I love getting my pussy licked by another woman! Girls know how to do it right because they’ve got a pussy of their own, you know? And that’s why I’m doing this program with some of the hottest girls in the business right now – Capri Cavanni, Dana DeArmond, Monique Alexander. These girls know just as much about fucking as I do!
We take you through all the techniques, all the positions…usually I play the guy, I put on my trusty strap-on and demonstrate what YOU need to do as a guy to get her off in a BIG way. I’ve never done anything like this before – I don’t know if anybody has! And trust me, it’s HOT.
MaxMan: When do we get to see it?
Asa: Soon! We’re still working on it as you can see, but it will be released REAL soon, so keep an eye out for it. I’m super proud of it, I know you’re gonna learn some amazing stuff that’s going to kick your sex life to another level.
MaxMan: We can’t wait. Thanks for talking with MaxManGuide, Asa!
Asa: No problem, my pleasure.
“Asa Akira Teaches Sex” has no official release date as of yet, but Asa says to check in with her Twitter, as it should be available in a few weeks…we’re looking forward to it, and we’ll be sure to have a review once it comes out!
