About Asa Akira
As for the day, Asa Akira net worth is estimated at $1.5 million dollars. As most of you already know, she is an adult film director and pornographic actress. In this context it is important to mention that Asa is by far not the richest of her colleagues – some porn stars have managed to accumulate much greater fortunes. For example, Jenna Jameson has a net worth of $30 million, Tera Patrick – $15 million, Peter North – $10 million, Jesse Jane – $8 million.
Although Asa is not the richest, her fortune is really impressive. What‘s more interesting, is that the actress seems to really enjoy her job. Most of us are used to thinking that girls who end up in porn industry are not there by their own “true will”. In other words, we tend to think that it was some sort of troubles in their early life that did not leave them much choice, but to provide for themselves by getting naked. Although this might be true in many cases, it does not seem to be true when we are speaking about Asa. It seems like she has been tempted by the industry ever since she was a teenager. At the age 19, Asa, the only child of Japanese parents who was educated at the private United Nations International School in Manhattan, started working as a dominatrix. Later on she was a stripper at the famous Hustler Club in The Big Apple. So when Akira met the pornographic Gina Lynn and was offered a part on a porn movie, she did not hesitate much before taking it.
And does the pornographic actress regret taking this job? I don’t think so. And this is not only because the work in porn industry has boosted Asa Akira net worth to more than one million dollars. She seems to really like her job, or namely – sex. In fact, during an interview for The Globe and Mail Akira described her job as “perfect”. The star added: “There’s this stereotype of porn stars that we’re very damaged people, that we come from very hard backgrounds. That stereotype definitely exists; we do have girls who are victims of those circumstances. But there are also girls like me. We’re in this business because we want to be doing it and we believe we should do what we want with our own bodies.“
Judging from the accolades she has received over the years, it seems safe to say that Akira not only enjoys her job, but is also really good at it. For example, she holds numerous AVN Awards (including for Best All-Girl Three-Way Sex Scene), two Urban X Awards, NightMoves Award and quite a few XRCO Awards. Although the actress is already in her 30s (and that‘s considered quite a lot in porn industry) it seems like Asa Akira net worth will continue to grow!
