Interview with Asian American porn starlet Miko Dai

Miko Dai Asian American porn starlet interview in panties

In my opinion, the latest in my long line of interviews with people in the sex industry is one of the most interesting and introspective question and answer sessions I have ever produced. Miko Dai first came across my radar a month ago, which apparently means I found out about her during her third month in porn. Ah, the wonders of the internet. Not only do they allow me to make such discoveries, they allow me to do interviews like these that I can present to the many readers of Rockit Reports. Enjoy!

When and how did you get into porn?

I did my first shoot early August of 2014. I really didn’t intend to stay in the industry, as I was in law school at the time–Georgia State University (on summer break) and did not plan to leave. I saw on ad on the internet that advertised to fly girls down to Miami to do a few paid shoots (for a pretty substantial sum.. I think the ad said $5,000). I have been in the adult industry for about 5 years: I started dancing at a local gentlemen’s club when I was 20, so it wasn’t a huge leap for me to make a trip down to Florida, earn some quick cash, and return to school a week or two later.

When I got to Florida, I started shooting and things sort of just happened really fast. I had a few realizations 2 or so weeks into shooting that made me rethink going back to law school– and ultimately I made the decision to pursue a career in porn instead of returning to school.

a) I liked having sex in front of the camera and was comfortable working with talent, crew, director, etc.
b) Porn = film making: There was an art to it that I hadn’t quite realized or acknowledged until I was in front of the camera. I wanted to learn more.
c) Everyday was an adventure.
d) Quitting school and doing porn would be the biggest risk I’ve ever taken. At my age (25), this was my only opportunity to pursue this. So I did.
e) I was bored with life and scared to death that I would end up hating my life, job, and myself (years down the road). Porn allowed me to do things, meet people, have experiences that I would never have the chance to encounter otherwise.

What sets you apart from other people who do porn?

I think my academic background, age and ethnicity are my most defining/unique traits as an adult performer. I have a degree in Economics from Emory University and (as I mentioned earlier) I went to law school for a year. I definitely know of girls in the industry who have gone to college, are working on their degrees, and/or have graduate degrees, but we are definitely in the minority. That being said, diplomas and education are not by any means a sole indicator of intelligence. I have met many intelligent women who don’t have a high school degree. I’m also 25– which is pretty old to just be entering the industry. I stay in model houses when I shoot in LA (I plan on moving out West once my lease is up next month), so I meet a lot of girls in the industry. Most of them are in the 18-22 age group and I’m usually one of the oldest girls.

I notice that you publicly describe yourself as an humanist and say that having sex on camera is empowering. Can you give me a better idea of what you mean by this?

Humanism: One of the main tenants of humanism focuses on the inherent value of human beings and our ability, as social creatures, to empathize, communicate and take care of one another. These are ideals that I personally align with, as they are grounded in reason, logic and pragmatism, rather than “faith”. That being said, I have no issue with mysticism, religion, or any kind of faith-based ideologies. The point of contention (for me) lies in that (most) organized religions create barriers and (unfairly) antagonize and marginalize certain groups of people. A very general example would be the controversy surrounding gay marriage. Why is this even an issue? The conservative argument is based solely on Judeo-Christian principals that (in my personal opinion) have no place in a “secular” nation (see Treaty of Tripoli).

Sexual Empowerment: Sex is empowering for me because I have used it to financially support myself, explore taboo subjects (that I find intriguing), and learn about the sex industry and how it works. In a way, being in this industry has made me more honest with myself and others.

Has porn changed since you first go into the industry?

I have only been in the industry for about 4 months so not a lot has changed. I do know, however, (pre-2007) before tube & stream sites emerged, porn was a much more fast paced, glamorous, and lucrative industry.

If you could start over again would you still have made porn?

Yes. 100%.

When did you watch your first porn? Do you remember it?

I first watched porn when I was 14. I had just had my first kiss the summer before 9th grade and I wanted to learn how to give a blow job– err, probably because I had told all my friends already that I had given a blow job and it was necessary to do the proper research to keep up the lie.

Anyway, I went on Limewire and downloaded a Naughty America scene with a beautiful, Aryan looking couple: the busty blonde woman with pigtails was the student and her co-talent was her teacher, a muscly, spiky haired blonde man with a soul patch. The main thing I remember is forgetting all about the blow job when I started watching, because the guy started eating the woman out, and I was like — mind blown. And that led to me getting slightly obsessed with cunnilingus and I started watching lesbian porn, which led to gay porn, which led to gang bangs….

What’s your best sexual memory? What’s your worst?

My best sexual memory happened recently when I was fooling around with a friend and he let me stick my finger up his butt! Prostate play has always intrigued me, but my sex life up until a couple months ago was SUPER vanilla. I never got to be adventurous with a partner that was comfortable enough with his sexuality to do things like that.. until porn.

My worst sexual memory is when I was 15 and I had snuck out of my house to meet this boy, who lived in my neighborhood, at the lake (our subdivision had a big fake lake in the middle of it). We sat by the water and made out for a little bit. And then we started getting more into it and I was like.. ohhh I would look so sexy if I straddled him right now.. now is as good a time as ever to try dry humping! So I straddled him, grinded on him and let him feel me up. His 5 inch cock was rock hard and I was soaking wet. I felt like the sexiest teenager in the world until I got up after and realized I was I bled all over his cargo pants (the ones with the huge pockets from Hollister). Epic fail.

When did you give your first blowjob? How was it?

I gave my first blowjob at the end of year party, my sophomore year of high school. It was the first night I had ever gotten “wasted”. My classmate’s older brother who was a freshman in college came and I blew him in the coat closet. I don’t remember too much, but I know, 1) he never came and 2) he never ate me out after like he promised.

If you had all the money you could ever want or need, would you still have done porn?

I probably would have tried it. I don’t know if I would have stayed.

Have you had any issues with family or friends finding out about your porn work? Has it caused any problems in your personal life?

My ex-boyfriend recently (like 2 days after X-mas), emailed my parents and outed my porn career to them. It was a particularly spineless thing to do, especially since we stayed together almost 4 months after I started. My career wasn’t even a huge contributing factor (except for the distance) to our break up: we were just two different people. And also I got tired of faking my orgasms with him.

Anyway, the day that he told my parents, we had talked on the phone earlier, argued and I ended up blocking his number. I guess he got desperate and emailed my parents.. because he’s a snitch.

My parents found out, confronted me, and we’re not really speaking at the moment. I wrote a blog entry in the form of a letter to them on my tumblr.

What advice would you give someone who wanted to get into porn? Would the advice be any different to a stranger than it would be to a sister or close friend?

It would be the same to anyone that wants to enter the business– whether family or stranger– If you feel degraded, then don’t do it. If it empowers you, inspires you, makes you feel good, then go for it.

What do you think about prostitution? You say you are a marijuana enthusiast. I was surprised that it was actually legalized in some parts of the US. I never thought I would see that in my lifetime. Do you think that prostitution will ever be legalized?

Prostitution in some form or another exists. I believe it should be legalized. I can only hope that our society becomes open minded enough to accept it.

Have you ever tried stripping or adult webcamming? How was it?

See answer to 1st question for dancing. I have done webcamming and in fact, I have a MFC account (mikodaixxx). I enjoy doing it, but I haven’t had time to log in any real hours recently (because of holidays, work, life, etc).

Are you ever recognized in the street?

One time a person asked if I was that girl from the internet.

Do you think the average porn star makes more or less money over their career than they would have if they done a “regular” job instead?

I think an average porn star definitely makes more money than what an “average” job would bring in; however, the expense of being a porn star — basic maintenance/upkeep like nails, make up, working out, buying new outfits for shoots and travel — is considerably more expensive than just working a 9-5. These expenses can be partially reimbursed through taxes, however. It all kind of evens out in the end and I don’t think one kind of worker is necessarily in a significant better financial situation than the other.

What kind of panties are you wearing right now?

No panties, hello kitty robe.

Do you ever have sex with random guys?

Not really. I used to be all about waking up next to an unfamiliar face in college. Now I’m okay with just focusing on work and having fun with my friends/colleagues, if the opportunity presents itself….

Does being in porn change the way you use social media? Can you still use things like Facebook to share pictures and chat with friends and family members without having it tied in to your porn?

Porn definitely introduced me to Twitter. I never had a twitter or even liked the idea of it before I started porn. Now, tweeting and staying on top of my social media (as Miko Dai) is an integral part of my job and building my career. When I started porn, I deleted all my “Kat” (that’s my real name) social media accounts. I just recently started a Facebook with my real name, since my parents already know and I’d like to be able to keep in touch with old friends and classmates.

Thank you very much for the doing this interview. Where can readers find more about you?
