Asphyxia Noir is an adult performer of Puerto Rican descent, with a goth, alternative look, born June 27th, 1989 in Methuen, Massachusetts. She has black hair, brown eyes and is a slender, kinky goth beauty standing 5'7 tall. Asphysxia is very slim, measuring 34B-25-33 with natural tits. Known for her slightly freaky appearance, especially compared to the typical adult performer, Asphyxia has numerous tattoos, including a star on each cheek and a piercing on her tongue.
Asphyxia has said she named herself after her number one fetish: asphyxiation. She's been a fashion model since she was 17 and has done high fashion, editorial and erotic modelling before entering the porn industry. Asphyxia has said that she always wanted to take her clothes off and express herself physically and sexually, but because she couldn't do that when she was 17, a lot of her modelling was more conceptual and avant-garde. After she turned 18 her photos became gradually more erotic, and by age 20 she was doing spread shots. Asphyxia has described being very angry growing up, and modelling was an outlet for that. She always felt like an outcast and blossomed when she found there was a niche for her where she was told she was beautiful.
Among Asphyxia's hobbies are doing makeup and hair, and she's received awards for cutting hair in the past. She says she also loves video editing and focussing on fashion and her hobbies when she's not performing in pornographic films. She's also the first porn (along with Skin Diamond) to have been in a Louis Vuitton magazine spread, for i-D Magazine. When she first moved to LA, she promised herself that she would never have sex with a man on camera, but then changed her mind when she realized the money would be able to help her with her other creative projects and ambitions. She's said that she's frustrated with the tabboo around performing in the adult industry, and wants to be taken seriously as an artist as well as a porn star. Asphyxia also has said that she considers sex an art, and her performances in the adult industry to be art. “How dare you say that just because I'm a porn star I'm not an artist,” she says.
Asphyxia's real name is Felicia, and she describes Asphyxia as a performance or being like a second identity. She has said that Felicia is the romantic and a goofy girl who watches Doctor Who, while Asphyxia is the sadist, or a more aggressive, predatory personality. She's said, “It would be dangerous for the world if I didn't have this outlet.”
She's performed for notable adult production companies like Vivid, Evil Angel, Wicked Pictures, Burning Angel, Kink.com and Girlfriend Films.
