Sasha Knox Interviewby Ray | June 1st, 2006
“When I’m watching porn, if the girl doesn’t get fucked in the ass I feel like I got cheated.”
SASHA: I just got done buying over a thousand dollars worth of art supplies. Now I’m just sitting here in front of this store, waiting for Bad Ass Frank.
RAY: You’re an artist, then?
SASHA: No. I’m not an artist. But I do enjoy putting colors on paper. It’s therapeutic.
RAY: What style?
SASHA: Acrylic, pastels and watercolor.
RAY: Do you display them?
SASHA: No. Sometimes I’ll give them away as gifts, but they’re just to make me happy. To make me feel more calm inside.
RAY: How long have you been in porn?
SASHA: About 9 months. I’ve been with Badass Models for about 3 months now. I honestly wish I had hooked up with Frank’s agency from the beginning. He’s the best agent out there. He’s gotten me the best work, and the most work. Just the way I want it. And he’s a great guy in general. He’s so nice to the directors. Everybody likes him. It makes my life so much easier. I guess everything happens for a reason, but I’m with him now.
RAY: How did you get into porn?
SASHA: A thousand different things went through my head at first. My initial thought was that I needed freedom. I thought that if I somehow could buy a car I could get the hell out of town. So one day I asked myself ‘how can I make money really fast?’ And I decided that the quickest way would be to have sex for money. But I didn’t just want to go stand on a corner. I love attention, so I thought, gosh, I’ll be in porn! I had no idea how one did that. But I thought if anybody can do it, I can. So I went online and found sexyjobs.com. I signed up and started getting responses. Everything from perverts in their basements to actual people in L.A. and Florida making offers for me to fly out. I came out and it was exactly how I thought it would be. So many times I get expectations and end up getting disappointed and disillusioned. But porn was exactly the way I wanted and needed it to be. So I just stuck with it.
RAY: What did you expect?
SASHA: I have a huge ego. So I expected to come out here and be great at porn. I expected to get myself a little corner of fame. At this point, I’m not famous obviously, but I’m doing quite well. Porn is easy. Nobody has tried to drug me and rape me, which is what my mother thought would happen. It’s simple. You get up, you shower, you shave, put your face on, and you go have sex. And then a nice director gives you a whole fuckload of money. I really couldn’t ask for anything more in my life, ya know? Well, actually I could… But for right now, it’s enough.
RAY: How did your family & friends react?
SASHA: That’s actually a very small group of people. There’s my mother, my grandparents, my uncle, my father and a couple of friends. My father was who I was living with when I decided to do this. He completely disowned me and threw me out of his house. I had never really known him anyway. I had just moved there to try get to know him, so it wasn’t a big loss. He’s generally a huge piece of shit. So it was good riddance to bad rubbish. My mother reacted wonderfully. She was very nervous at first. She figured it would be what 20/20 says porn is. But I’m healthy, happy and wealthy, so she’s pleased. My friends are all completely cool with it. They’re not at all surprised. My grandfather, I don’t really know. He’s very tolerant of the situation. My grandmother has disowned me. My uncle, however, is enthused. He wants me to introduce him to all my little pornstar friends.
RAY: Typical uncle.
SASHA: Yeah [Laughs] My uncle’s awesome. He and my mom were more like my good friends growing up because my grandparents raised me. My uncle is a huge Katie Gold fan. I did a scene with her for Jim Powers and he was like “oh my god, you have to introduce me”. [Laughs] So I wasn’t sure how my family would react. If they were ashamed, hiding in a cave and not able to show their faces in the town market, that’s not really my fucking problem. But I was lucky because the people who matter reacted well.
RAY: Where are you originally from?
SASHA: I was born in San Francisco, but I spent most of my life in Scottsdale, Arizona.
RAY: How young are you?
SASHA: I’m 21. Born 1984.
RAY: So what’s new and exciting?
SASHA: My biggest thing right now is a boy/girl photo shoot I did for HUSTLER magazine. I assume it will be in the June issue, but I don’t know for sure. I’m very excited about that. I went to Larry Flynt’s big office downtown in January and took some test photos. They were like ‘okay thanks, we’ll call you’. I was like ‘yeah, right’. A few months later I was on an Elegant Angel set, and I just happened to look at my phone and there was a message. I told Frank, and he called and set it up. It was all very exciting. I spend a lot of time on ADT and that sort of thing. I’ve kind of developed a little following of perverts. “My favorite perverts”, as I call them. But hey, if there are people who actually go out and buy movies because I’m in them, that completely does it for me. It’s people who are getting off because of me. And that’s hot. It makes my day to know there are people out there doing that.
RAY: Or maybe they just like you as a person.
SASHA: [Laughs] Yeah, I’m sure they love me for my mind.
RAY: I hear you’re a bit of a recovering goth… Is that true?
SASHA: Um… [Laughs] Yes. For a long time I was very pale, with long, shoe-polish black hair. If you want to see me this way, just grab Gutter Mouths #33. That’s my first anal scene ever! I’m all gothed-out. It’s so funny, I look at the pictures now and I think “ugh! What was I thinking?” It’s not attractive at all. But back then I thought I was the cat’s meow. I thought I was the sexiest goth chick out there. But I wasn’t. I definitely prefer the look that I’ve got going on now. With Frank’s help, I’ve lost weight. I started going to the gym. I have a tan, I’m blonde. Little improvements, but it has made a huge difference. I just look a lot healthier and more approachable now. But my mind is still very gothic. I’m still very dark and morbid. I don’t really think you can get that out of you. But I certainly don’t look it any more.
RAY: Are you into goth music?
SASHA: Actually I listen to a lot of emo. I also really like classic 80′s rock. My favorite band is The Pixies. I listen to anything as long as it says something to me. It could be a country song but if it makes me feel something, I’ll listen to it. I need constant music playing. There needs to be a constant soundtrack in my life or I get very sad.
RAY: What did you do before porn?
SASHA: Before I came out here, I was living at my father’s so I wasn’t really working. He kept telling me I didn’t need to get a job so I just layed around the house. Before that, I managed a Subway. Before that, I worked at a pharmaceutical company as an assistant supervisor. I answered phones and had people yell at me all day. And before that, I was working at a hospital doing nursing. I’ve been working since I was 14. I also had many jobs in the mall. Ice cream stores, that sort of thing. Honestly, and this sounds really corny — I’m not making it up — But I pretty much had to quit or was fired from almost every job I had because I kept fucking everyone. I would always cause some sort of drama or piss somebody’s girlfriend off. I would constantly create some sort of mess because generally, I was just bored and horny. It was one of the things that made me think “where can I get a job where I’m not gonna get in trouble for being crazy and fucking people all the time?” So I pretty much figured I should do porn. I get bored really easy. I can entertain myself fine. But when you’re standing in a mall trying to sell clothes to people, you have to find some way to have fun. And why not fuck all the customers? [Laughs] But that was my mindset many years ago. I’m not going to be cliche and say that porn is therapy for me, but having such an easy job is giving me time to listen to people who have more wisdom than I do and try to learn new ways of living my life and be a better person. When you don’t have to worry about money, you have a lot more time to think about what’s really important. That’s one of the advantages to being in this industry.
RAY: Does anything bother you about porn?
SASHA: Girls that don’t do anal. [Laughs] No… I just wish that everybody who did porn actually wanted to do it. I wish it wasn’t filled with people who just want money. I know that I take what I do about a thousand times more seriously than I should. I’m not trying to say that what I do is important, but I think it is. It’s important to me. I wish both male & female talent would give 150% every time they work. If that could happen, nobody would be pissed off. There wouldn’t be any reason for director’s to bitch. It would just be fun. We would all just have hot sex and have fun with it. But I really don’t think there are enough people out there to make a successful porn industry. We need more people who actually enjoy what they’re doing and aren’t too concerned about the money.
RAY: So you’d say your prime motivation is sex?
SASHA: Well, you know… I don’t think I would do it for free. But the money that we make is insane. Especially considering how I did this for years for free with boyfriends and stuff. It just seems like there are girls out there who show up to sets and spend most of their day looking at their watch. They just want to get naked, lay there, and get through the scene. They think that’s enough and it’s really not. There are some girls that just don’t give a shit. They’re just there to make their money. But other than dealing with people like that, I love being in porn. The high-school drama that goes on behind-the-scenes is hilarious and fun. It makes me feel about 5 years younger than I am. I honestly don’t have a problem with any of the men. They’re a necessary part of the equation. I don’t really see any reason to fight with them or make fun of them. It’s mainly the girls who I interact with. I just let them do their thing and I don’t have a problem with it. That’s what keeps it fun. If it was all strictly-business, and nobody was causing mischief, it wouldn’t be any fun.
RAY: Are you ever surprised by the level of drama in porn?
SASHA: No. You have girls having sex with men. That’s automatic competition right there. This girl wants to be better than that girl… That sort of thing. All the girls compare themselves to each other. There’s always gonna be drama when you put naked chicks together! [Laughs]
RAY: Tell me a dirty story from your personal life.
SASHA: Hmm… There are quite a few of those. Once when I was 16 I was hanging out with a friend. I’m sober now, but that day we were getting high and fooling around. We heard a knock at the door. It was his friend, so we let him in. I’m very comfortable with my body. I always have been since I was little. So I didn’t bother putting my clothes on. And my friend didn’t have his clothes on. So we were all just like — what the hell, why don’t we all get together! So just out of nowhere I had a 2-on-1 with these two guys. Instead of two girls, which is how it usually happens when you’re that young. They were both really chill. It was a great time. We fucked for three or four hours. Then after that, we went over to another friend’s house and a huge orgy ensued. It was a whole crew of 16, 17, and 18 year old kids. We all went to school together. I was highly intoxicated so I don’t remember all the details. I just remember having a lot of sex that day. Everybody was really comfortable, and I think that’s what made it so crazy. We all just got down. Nobody freaked out or got upset about anything. It was just lots and lots of fuckin’.
RAY: Nice. Tell me something that happened to you at work.
SASHA: [Laughs] Okay… Let me think of something that won’t fuck-up somebody’s life… Um, there was this grocery story I worked at. I worked in the bakery. There was a young man who worked in the dairy aisle. He was very handsome. Dyed black hair and blue eyes… Totally my type. He was also very quiet and very unassuming, so naturally I had this overwhelming desire to infiltrate and destroy him. He would always come over to the bakery because we would put out free samples of cookies and stuff. We had been eyeing each other for a while, and by this time we had already had a little introduction. He came up and I gave him one of the cookies. I can be very corny sometimes with the lines I deliver to men. I made some dumb remark like, “do you like that? Do you want more?” I totally figured he would get scared and run away. And he didn’t. This was in the middle of the afternoon, and I was just about to finish my shift. He comes behind the counter, grabs me by the back of my aprin, and proceeds to fuck me in the freezer. It was a very cold, very enjoyable experience. Literally when he was done, he kind of just smiled and left. It was so manly and barbaric… So caveman of him, that I just completely fell head-over-heels. But of course he wanted nothing to do with the slutty bakery girl.
RAY: Do you like to be surprised?
SASHA: I love to be surprised. I like it when men surprise me. When somebody comes-off so unassuming and cute and then basically just takes you… that’s pretty fucking hot. Hey! Frank just showed-up.
RAY: Uh-oh… We’ve been caught.
SASHA: [Laughs] No… It’s cool.
RAY: What are some favorite videos that you’ve done?
SASHA: Fuck Dolls 6, Dirt Pipe Milkshakes 2, and Little Fuckers 2. Those are the ones that I’ve seen that I know are really hot. I completely let go in all of them. Have you ever heard of ‘runner’s high’? Well the same kind of thing sometimes happens in porn. Once you have so many orgasms and you’re just so at ease, you kind of just float off into space and this animal takes over. I totally let go at that point. I think that’s what makes for a really hot scene. Where it’s just completely unscripted and you just let things happen.
RAY: So you’re a big anal fan.
SASHA: I’m a huge anal fan. It started very slowly for me. When I first got into porn, I was kind of nervous about it. The only anal sex I’d ever had was with my ex-boyfriend. He was not particularly well-endowed so it was never a big deal. But when I got into porn, the cocks just got bigger and bigger and I thought “oh lord, how am I gonna do this?” But you adjust. And now, it’s just fuckin’ awesome. When I’m watching porn, if the girl doesn’t get fucked in the ass I feel like I got cheated. It’s just fucking boring. But maybe that’s just me.
RAY: It’s you and practically every dude on the planet.
SASHA: [Laughs] I just enjoy it! I’m a firm believer in pushing my boundaries and taking things as far as humanly possible. And not being afraid to go one step further than you think you can.
RAY: What’s your master plan?
SASHA: I want to do this as long as I’m popular. I don’t want to run it into the ground. As soon as I’m not being requested as much as I am now, I’ll probably just call it quits. Ultimately, my hope would be that within the next few years I’ll meet ‘Mr. Right’. I hope that he’s awesome and we get married and have babies, but you can’t really apply for that. It’s kind of just a dream.
RAY: Do you still have sexual fantasies left?
SASHA: No. Not really. [Lauhgs] I don’t really have any that are un-fufilled, I suppose. But I still have fantasies. I’m still very creative and kinky, mentally. There really isn’t much I haven’t done at this point. I haven’t done double-anal or double-vag, but I plan to. That will probably be the last big thing I do.
RAY: What about golden showers?
SASHA: You know what? When I was 14 years old, that was the first time anybody ever pissed on me. I’ve done it tons of times since. I don’t particularly enjoy it, but I don’t hate it. I It’s up to the guy, really.
RAY: Who pissed on you at 14?
SASHA: Reverend Mitch.
SASHA: Well, he’s not a real reverend. That’s just what he goes by. He’s sort of an internet personality and he tells the story all the time on his show.
RAY: Have you ever gotten involved with talent off-the-clock?
SASHA: There are some male talent that are very nice men, but I don’t think I would ever try to date them.
RAY: Have you ever gotten involved with agents off-the-clock?
SASHA: [Lauhgs] I plead the 5th!
RAY: Do you think porn girls are different than most girls?
SASHA: I don’t really know how to answer that. I’ve only met a few girls in porn who are like myself. That is, who are very sexual and actually enjoy what they’re doing, rather than just going through the motions. Every girl in this world is different. They’re all special and crazy and wonderful and horrible in their own individual ways. I really don’t think being in porn makes you any different.
RAY: Where can people find you?
SASHA: MySpace for now. I don’t have a website or anything like that.
RAY: What’s your favorite physical act?
SASHA: Yes! Kissing. Preferably followed by anal sex, but… [Laughs] Yeah, I’m really big on kissing. A hot make-out session and some hardcore anal. That pretty much does it for me!
