Ashli Orion gives an exclusive interview to Freeones where she answers some very interesting questions about what it’s like for her working in the adult industry…
What led you into the porn business?
My nymphomania and open mind!
Did you do anything else before you got into this business?
I was a full-time college student who also worked as a TV and music video production and post-production person. It was a lot of fun, but I longed to be on the other side of the camera- naked!
If you had the opportunity to erase this part of your life and start over, would you?
No way, Jose! This has been one of the best experiences of my life!
Are you open about your profession with anyone that asks, or are there certain people who you are reluctant to tell?
I am open about my profession to my friends and family because I know they love me for me, but I do get reluctant to tell strangers because I never know what sort of reaction I’m going to get.
How long do you intend to remain in this business? Are you planning on working up until you can no longer find work or is there a particular time line you have?
I intend to remain in the business as long as I keep getting work and continue to stay happy and healthy
There seems to be a general perception that participants in this business live life “in the fast lane,” because to most of us it seems that sex and partying goes hand in hand. With that being said, how do you find the time to get rest with all this excitement going on?
I used to party a lot when I was a kid, so these days I mostly party at home. I rest a lot because my party includes lots of ganja!
How much control do you have of your work? Do you get to choose who you work with?
I have a lot of control over my work, I never have to do anything I don’t want to do. I don’t really get to chose who I work with, but I can chose who I don’t work with.
Can you refuse to do scenes with people you don’t click with?
Yup, but I am really easy to get along with so I haven’t had too many problems in that department.
Do you have your say about the use (or not) of condoms in a scene if you do b/g hardcore?
Most of the companies in California shoot without condoms as long as the actors have been STD tested. I don’t really like condoms so it works for me, but I have used them a few times while working outside of California.
What is the best part of your job? The worst?
The best part of my job is the sex! The worst part is when the sex is over!
What is the strangest thing you’ve been asked to do on set? Did you do it?
“Put on your clothes” is pretty strange, but I hear it a lot, and I don’t like to argue.
What is the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to you while on the job?
It’s hard to do something embarrassing on a porn set! Things like queefing don’t phase anyone.
Should there be more kissing on the lips between actors, or is kissing considered “too intimate” for the porn business?
Well, I’m no Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” hehe. I like kissing! It usually helps me and the other actors get more into our scene. I feel like putting my mouth on a cock or pussy is way more intimate!
What is the first thing you did or bought with your first porn paycheck?
I bought a mansion in Malibu…. just kidding! When I got my first paycheck, I was ecstatic… and then I paid some credit card bills.
Do you feel that “fame” has cramped your lifestyle similar to what a mainstream film star might feel?
I don’t consider myself to be “famous”… and if I was famous, it totally wouldn’t cramp my lifestyle because I love positive attention!
Has porn affected your personal sex life? If so, how?
Yes, I get a lot more sex, hurray!
Do you have any pets?
I recently rescued my best friend, Shadow, who is the sweetest cat ever! I also have a crazy hamster named Lupita.
What do you like to do when you’re not working? Do you have any hobbies?
I masterbate a lot! I also like sleeping, eating, making music, making art, making short films and music videos, watching movies, and going on random adventures with friends.
What are your future ambitions?
I just want to enjoy my life to the fullest while I’m still young. I love that my job gives me the freedom to pursue anything I want (like art, music, and film). Honestly though, I really want to be a mom… but don’t worry, there won’t be any buns in my oven any time soon.
Is there anything you would like your fans to know specifically about you?
It’s weird to think that I actually have “fans!” I want my fans to know that I love what I do, and I love them for supporting me! <3 *muah*
