Sasha Grey Knows About Working 9 to 5 In the P*rn Industry

by 8 years ago

The abundantly talented Ms. Sasha Grey — you’ve probably strangled the neck attached to the head in your pants to her — has become one of the most popular adult film actresses working in the business today. The 22 year old’s success and swift rise to the top has even been compared to that of Taylor Swift. Only, to our chagrin, we don’t get to enjoy the fruits that would accompany watching Taylor f*ck. So advantage Sasha.

 

If you are unfamiliar with this beauty, you should know that Sasha is a multifaceted dame and even though she has an uncompromising approach in the bedroom, her talents and ambitions aren’t relegated to just adult entertainmentography. Sasha has already starred in a mainstream movie, “The Girlfriend Experience,” she is currently starring in the new DVD doc*mentary, “9 to 5: Days in Porn,” she has a top-secret TV appearance in the works, and she even finds time to have her own music collaboration, aTelecine.

 

Naturally, when we heard that Sasha had such a full plate, we wanted to talk to her. In our Q&A session, we picked Sasha’s brain about the new DVD, her intentions for her career, what stokes her sex flame, and how to convince our girlfriends to try an*l sex.  See the full interview and more photos of Sasha after the Jump.

 

BroBible: You are featured in the upcoming DVD doc*mentary, “9 to 5: Days in Porn,” a film that provides an interesting and insightful look inside the world of the adult industry. What, if anything, has working on this film taught you about yourself and where you want to take your career?

 

Sasha Grey: Honestly, I haven’t seen the film since it’s Montreal world premiere in 2008, and I only saw it once. I’ve always been very introspective about myself as a woman, as an artist. I delve into it a little bit in my upcoming book, but I think the real juicy stuff will have to wait for my biography, which isn’t coming out anytime in the near future.

 

You’re one of the few mainstream adult entertainment crossovers which is probably the reason you were chosen to participate in “9 to 5: Days in Porn.” What kind of pressure does your celebrity put on your working relationships with adult entertainment-industry peers who don’t enjoy the same widespread success and recognition?

 

The hardest part is maintaining friends, but I think that’s true of any successful young person, in any business, not just the adult industry. With the exception of a few friends, I don’t fraternize with people off the set.

 

Before you got into adult entertainment, you took acting lessons. Do you think that learning the art of acting has helped to distinguish you in the adult entertainment world, where acting ability doesn’t necessarily take precedent?

 

Hahaha, no. In my adult work, I rarely play a character, I am just a hyper version of myself. In the adult features I have been in, directors still usually want a “Sasha Grey persona” in my fictional character, so there’s not a noticeable difference.

 

Last year, Rolling Stone writer Vanessa Grigoriadis compared you to country star Taylor Swift. What did you think about the comparison?

 

At that time, I didn’t know who she was; I knew her name and face, but I didn’t know what she did. After our conversation, I looked her up briefly. We seem to share two commonalities: young success and an abundant amount of confidence.

 

After working with Steven Soderbergh on “The Girlfriend Experience,” what other mainstream projects do you have in the works?

 

I’ve been doing a lot of specials with G4TV — one we shot last week, and another in August. I also have a large television role coming up, which I can’t talk about just yet… and a few indie films later this summer and early fall, along with the release of my first (photography) book.


 

What, if anything, do you have in the pipeline with aTelecine and your music career?

 

Well…we were offered to open up for some of my favorite bands in 2009, and again an offer for this fall. The truth is we are so experimental it’s tough to find a way to play the music live and actually have an entertaining show. We have two albums coming out this month, and have various collaborations in the works that are all top secret.

 

You’re young, beautiful, extremely good at what you do, and you have a myriad of other interests. Do you see adult entertainment as your “9 to 5” job for years to come or do you intend on making her exit soon?

 

You’ll have to stick around and see!

 

What is Sasha Grey’s biggest turn on and what makes her feel at her absolute sexiest?

 

Well, listening to The Doors makes me feel pretty sexy, or some Parliament/Funkadelic. I like men and women who are confident in themselves and that have a great sense of humor… like Janeane Garofalo for instance.



How have you managed to keep relationships or a love life with what you do and do you think adult entertainment has a place in a healthy, mature adult relationship?

 

I don’t shoot nearly as much as I did in 2006, so it’s been a lot easier. I’ve been in an open relationship with my partner, Ian, for almost four years now.

 

When it’s time to seduce a guy, give us a few of your do’s and don’ts for all the ladies out there.

 

Oh God… that’s tough. Every guy likes something different, and I don’t think it’s that hard to seduce a guy, it’s much more difficult to seduce a woman! Just be confident and go for it.

 

I polled a few of my good friends and allowed them to come up with one question for you. After they giggled like school girls, this is all their simple minds could muster: How do adult entertainment stars get so good at anal, and as a follow up, how can we get our girlfriends to do that?

 

There’s part of me that wants to say a sick joke here, but I’m sure many people will only read the sick part…it’s all about practice. A lot of relaxation, toys, and lubrication does the trick. You have to know your body; don’t be afraid to explore it. A good way to get a girl into it is by starting off slow with one finger, a small toy. Stimulating the clitoris is also important for many women to enjoy an*l sex.

 

This final question has been on a lot of people’s minds. How do adult entertainment stars avoid disease? I know that there is an industry health service in California, but there is always going to be an eclipse period between when a person can pass on a newly acquired germ and when it can be detected. Considering most adult entertainment stars don’t use condoms and engage in prolonged sex acts, how do you stay safe? Are people forced into retirement due to illness, like a linebacker with a bum knee, or perhaps they go on the disabled list while on antibiotics?

 

The standard adult industry guideline is testing every 30 days. Our HIV testing is called PCR/DNA, thi
s detects the virus
within two weeks of exposure, instead of six months, like general testing facilities. So yes, there is always a two-week window, sometimes longer, depending on when the individual was last tested… but I’ve never met anyone who’s had to retire. However, if I shoot an adult scene, I make my partner get tested two days before our scene.
