People say that blondes have the most fun. But, redheads like Ashley Graham like to have fun too. On her personal website, she is Bat Graham who is a sexual super heroine. Moreover, I enjoy her unique vignettes on that site especially the more taboo ones. She likes to make things interesting for the viewer as well as for herself. I also enjoy how she adores making out with a woman. Her genuine attraction and fondness for the ladies are noticeable on screen. It's the main reason why those performances are hot ones. You won't be able to resist her kiss.
Hi Ashley, your girl on girl scenes really capture the attention of the audience. What is it about a woman that gets you so turned on?
I just like girls. I like that they are pretty and soft and for the most part, sweet. Pretty much if they have red or dark hair and light eyes then I'm smitten.
How long have you been in the industry? What have been your most pleasurable moments so far? What has been your least pleasurable?
I've been in about two years. I started shooting a lot of fetish and BDSM and then eventually moved on to girl/girl work the past year. My most pleasurable moments have been meeting a lot of people. I really enjoyed my Kink shoot and then my Hot and Mean shoot this past week. I like shoots where I actually get to have fun and have sex. The least pleasurable has been a few where my limits were pushed, mainly while shooting BDSM. Sometimes it's tough to have to stick to your guns.
What did you do before you entered the adult film world? How did you enter this industry?
Before entering the adult film world, I was a student and I worked at a tanning salon and dog and cat store. It was fun. It was college life. I was also engaged, but that disappeared rather quickly when I got naked on the Internet. I started on Model Mayhem and just generally progressed to shooting more and more adult work. I found it fun. I'm a voyeur and an exhibitionist so eventually shooting adult made sense.
What was the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry when you started?
How normal people were. I know that sounds funny, but I've met so many intelligent and wonderful people. Before you get in, you have this pre-conceived notion that everyone is crazy and parties. It's true that some do, but I've also met very normal, intelligent people who I hope to know forever.

You had a couple of scenes with the great fetish mistress Anastasia Pierce in Hollywood Kink. How did you enjoy being the submissive one while having your wrists and legs tied?
I love Anastasia Pierce and her husband Lorenzo. They are both two of the most beautiful people I've met while shooting. I often play the submissive. I'm horrible at being dominant unless a girl is involved. I started shooting fetish and BDSM, so it's fun for me. I like to be the one who isn't in control.
What traits of a woman do you admire most? What makes a woman sexy? What traits of a man do you admire most? What makes a man sexy?
I admire strong women and business savvy women. To me, there is nothing hotter than a woman who knows what she wants in life and does whatever she needs to accomplish it. I think confidence, independence, intelligence, and a good personality make a woman sexy. Also, dark hair and light eyes, but I'm attracted to that in any gender.
In a man, I look for about the same thing. I don't like lazy people. I want someone who can keep up with me and push me to do my best and vice versa. I also like men who can make me laugh and aren't afraid to tease and poke fun at me. I'm a huge tomboy, so while I like to be treated like a princess, I also like a man who isn't afraid to take me to do things where I might get a little dirty.
How does it feel when you meet your fans? Do you they recognize you in public?
I haven't met many of them and I rarely get recognized. I like it that way. Don't get me wrong. I love my fans, but I like to not worry about going out in sweats. I occasionally get emails where they tell me that they saw me out and about and I always encourage them to say hello. I don't bite. If you see me, come over and say hi. Unless, I'm super tired. I love meeting new people.
In Cytherea is a Lesbian Squirt Machine, you had a hot scene with Tristina Millz. How much do you enjoy scenes that include toys? Do you enjoy using the toys on someone more or having them used on you?
I like toys, at least at home in my personal life. However, for scenes, I prefer not to use them. I also don't like using them on other people. Toys are more for masturbation with myself than other girls.
Many adult stars are animal lovers. Are you one of them? Are you a cat or dog person?
I am. I absolutely adore animals. I'm a dog person. My boyfriend and I actually have a pit bull I picked up on the side of the street. It had to be day two with a brand new car and he was bleeding on the side of the road covered in dog bites and would only come to my car. His name is Brutus and he's awesome. I tweet photos of him A LOT! I also have a jack russel - chihuahua mix named Lukas, Luke for short. He's a spunky little puppy filled with energy who hides in my suitcase every time I leave for L.A. now.
Are there any industry people (actors, actresses, directors, etc.) who you have not had the opportunity to work with yet and want to very badly and why? What would be your dream scene?
I'd love to work with Brett Rossi, Maddie O' Reilly and Lexi Belle. Just Dave was on my list of directors to work with, but we just shot. I'd also love to shoot for Elegant Angel because I just love their work. I don't really have a dream scene that I can discuss yet.
How were you as a kid growing up?
I was really shy when I was little. It wasn't until high school that I came out of my shell, then all bets were off. I partied a lot and then calmed down near my senior year.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I love to read and write. I'm an English major so it's a big thing for me. I also just got a house, so I've been really into decorating that and cooking. Oh my lord, I love to cook. I'm shocked I'm not fat.
What is your shoe size?
6. I have baby feet!
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
I like that I get to explore my sexuality on my own terms and such things. I also get access to some of the hottest people around.
Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote? What are you currently working on film wise?
My site just went live and I have a few Clips4Sale stores which you can easily find by searching my name there. I just shot a scene for Lily Cade's redhead movie for Filly Films and I also have a scene coming out on Hot and Mean for Brazzers. Other than that, there's a big thing coming, but you'll have to wait until after AVN to find out what that is.
