Ash Hollywood interview
The biggest line-up of adult radio programming is on Sirius XM Channel 102. This Vivid talk-fest currently has Ash Hollywood and her "Tap That Ash" show. This blonde cutie is a nice fit at the 5pm Pacific spot as those male and female West Coast listeners drive home from a hard day's work. It's her easy-listening voice and persona that make the sexual nature of her show so appealing to both genders. Since she makes her call-in viewers comfortable, it allows them to open up and spill the beans on their deepest inner sexual fantasies.
Hi Ash, it's a pleasure to interview you. I am so pleased that you have your own Vivid radio show on Sirius XM. How did Vivid approach you in offering you your own show? What do you want your show to offer to your listeners?
I was really excited when Vivid came forward and asked me to have my own show along with some select colleagues. Previously, I was co-host to Glenn King, from Mean Bitches who mentored me quite a bit for the position. On my show, Tap That Ash, I want my listeners to feel comfortable enough to express themselves sexually with no judgement and be able to confess their deepest desires. Its a magical thing being able to make someone's day just from a quick couple minutes phone call from the show.
Your Vivid film The Dating Game XXX: A Porn Parody is out right now. How much fun did you have on that set?
The Vivid crew is amazing. It's like hanging out with great friends because that's exactly what I'm doing. My scene with Penny Pax was so much fun because she's so smart and filthy.
How did you begin in the adult industry?
I started modeling when I was 18 and an opportunity presented itself when I was 20 to come to California and work. My first shoot in the adult industry was on the cover of Hustler Barely Legal! It's been an experience ever since.
I know that your fans adore you. They must get pretty excited when they meet you since you are so cute and personable. How do you feel when you meet them? Are there any very memorable moments that stick in your mind when you and a fan met?
I love meeting new people! My fans are so cute and nervous when they meet me, I can't help but giggle. Its still astonishing to me that I can have that affect on people. I just see myself as a normal girl still, not on the pedestal my Ashaholics put me on. All my fans are great, and I remember most that I meet. Fans have been known to bring me bottles of Jack at my appearances, which is always welcome!
What have been your most memorable on screen performances?
I've done so much I'm not sure where I could begin…I did a pretty amazing looking upside down bj in a straight jacket for Kink.com
that I had so much fun with. Although, my favorite movie I've done thus far is "No Way Out" by Digital Playground. It was my first lead role in a feature. I got to do stunts and work with real guns during the movie!
I have always been someone who believes that most male performers get a bum wrap since they do not receive the proper recognition that they deserve. As you already know, it is not easy for a guy to be a reliable sex performer. It is hard work. Could you name a few of your favorite male partners who you have worked with in the past?
I love working with James Deen. He's a solid performer and we have filthy scenes. I also really enjoy working with Mick Blue and Manuel Ferrara. They have a way of taking over the scene and making it look great.
What makes a man sexy? What makes a woman sexy?
In men and women, I love confidence, athleticism, and brains. I love a man that can treat me like a gentleman should, but fuck me like a man would. I date fighters a lot just because I love the way they are in bed. A woman's confidence is captivating. When girls get all dressed up, hair done, make up fresh, and walk into a room turning heads…I love that look they have on their face in that moment. Some girls look shy, and innocent…others look like they're going to fuck you or kill you. That initial look on a girl's face says the world about her.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I'm an extremely active person. I hike, snowboard, wakeboard, and work out. I'm constantly on the go and traveling these days. Going to new places is the most exciting thing to me. On my travels, I read a lot and am a pretty big book junkie.
What is your opinion on the political fuss about male performers wearing condoms on camera? Do you think that it will hurt the industry? I always thought it won't hurt it too much since guys want to see a gorgeous woman get screwed. It's the eye candy appeal of the woman that is the main attraction.
The facts are that sales would go down, but the reality is that fewer and fewer people are actually paying for porn. It's a lose-lose situation if we're talking about revenue. I believe they're forgetting their most important assets fighting it, because without the performers there would be no porn, just men with cameras recording a questionable couch. I'm all for the safety of us all. With recent outbreak events that were handled as efficiantly as possible, I think the porn companies should agree to go condom only for a while like they did years prior. Performing with condoms isn't easy, but it would separate the men from the boys.
Many adult performers love animals. Do you have any pets?
I have three! I have a Siberian Husky and two cats.
How were you as a kid?
Always trying to defy the laws of physics, but jumping off things. I wanted to fly or get as close as I could to it. I haven't changed much. I'm still the mischievous little smart ass, getting into trouble.
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
I've met some amazing people as Ash Hollywood. I've also gotten to know more about myself. The adult industry gave me the crash course on learning myself inside and out, and fucking love myself. I also love knowing I can touch peoples' lives, even if it's them actually touching themselves.
Are there any websites, programs, or any other things that you would like to promote?
My site is ashgirl.com
and my Twitter address is @ashhollywood. Of course, I want everyone to listen to me at "Tap That Ash" on Sirius XM Channel 102 Mondays and Tuesdays from 5-6pm PT
