Jun Posted by maxineowen. Today, I am posting an interview with Asia Carrera. I must apologize to Asia in advance. Please forgive me for not recognizing your name. Maxine Owen: Thank you, Asia, for joining us on my blog. Asia: Hi Maxine :o. Maxine Owen : You are an adult Aspie.
The most heartbreaking scene in the documentary After Porn Ends , about the post-porn lives of 12 adult stars, may be when Asia Carrera talks about her membership in the high-IQ society Mensa. She explains that Mensa links to all its members' websites, but that they wouldn't link to hers because Eventually, though, the society did feature her in an issue of its magazine devoted to Mensa celebrities—a big moment for her, she says. Which, to me, just seems incredibly sad.

Even five years removed from her life in adult entertainment, there are few people in the world of pornography more iconic than Asia Carrera. It was the early days of the internet when Asia created and maintained one of the first celebrity blogs, giving her fans a chance to interact with her and see the… ahem …ins and outs of her day-to-day life. But even as she played the object of our desires, she also helped put an upbeat face on an industry badly in need of positive PR. In the world of pornography, hers is an uncommon and amazing tale, and if her story had ended there, Asia would still be an adult film legend. In June of , while driving home from Las Vegas, her husband Don was tragically killed in an accident leaving Asia alone and pregnant with their second child. In the desperate spiral that followed, Asia found herself financially unstable and emotionally drained. And now, finally on her feet, she is no less a trailblazer, fighting each day as a single mother with a smile on her face. Feel free to hit her up on her site for a quick chat.
