Q&A with Katja Kassin
(from the upcoming book, Penetrating Questions with the People Who Turn You on, by Tom J and Dirty Dave)
By Tom J
Tom J: Where were you born?
Katja Kassin: I was born in Leipzig, Germany. My home town is in the East of Germany; it used to be within the formerly communist East German territories. I was ten years old when the wall came down and Germany reunited in 1989.
TJ: How long have you been in the business?
KK: Almost four years now; I started in March 2003.
TJ: Why did you enter the business?
KK: Mainly for financial reasons, to pay my bills on time. But, I was always fascinated with the sexual attitude of the girls in the movies. I thought I could be doing this and be really good at it when I first saw a porn film at the age of sixteen.
TJ: How did it happen?
KK: I started nude modeling in Germany when I was twenty, and I got in contact with German adult star Dru Berrymore. She invited me to come to America and shoot porn movies. I had never done it before because porn actors are not paid very well in Germany. But, I took my chances and bought a plane ticket to L.A., and this is how it all started.
TJ: What was your first shoot like?
KK: My first nude photo shoot was strange. Not because I was shy, but because I didn’t know what to do exactly. I was really inexperienced and I didn’t know what the photographer expected of me. It turned out okay, and I really liked the pictures. My first sex scene was shot in Germany, before I went to America. I wanted to make sure I liked it. It was easy because by that time I had already done solo masturbation videos and many nude photo shoots. I was used to being naked in front of a crew. The fact that I had sex on camera didn’t bother me that much. The guy was very nice. I think I was a little insecure because I wanted to do a good job, but other than that it was fun.
TJ: Were the other cast and crew members helpful during your early scenes? What did they do to help you?
KK: The guy I worked with in my first German scene was very nice and he explained some things to me. When I came to the San Fernando Valley and shot my first scene here I pretty much looked into Vince Vouyer’s face which was saying “Alright, are you ready for two dicks in your ass?”
TJ: What made you decide to go back for a second scene?
KK: After that experience I went to America in March 2003 and in my first month I already shoot 25 scenes. It was crazy, I didn’t think I would be so popular right away. I realized everybody in the industry, my co-workers, directors, and fans liked me so I just stuck with it.
TJ: What do you think made you so popular?
KK: That fact that I was all natural with a big butt, did anal from the very start and didn’t mind working with African-American co-workers.
TJ: How do you prepare for a scene?
KK: I don’t do anything special. Take a shower, shave, wash my hair, pack the clothes they ask for in my suitcase, maybe go tanning the day before. I have an enema before anal scenes. But that’s it. No big deal.
TJ: If you were going to create a scene for yourself to perform, what would it entail?
KK: I’m very spontaneous, but it would have a nice and sensual blow job with a lot of eye contact, teasing and talking, passionate sex with anal, and a nice facial.
TJ: If you could change anything about the business, what would it be?
KK: I would put the legal starting age for porn to twenty-one, and I would enforce protected sex for any filming. It would also be great to have a porn actors union, but that will never happen.
TJ: If you were not acting, what would you be doing?
KK: I would be a secretary and sit in an office all day long.
Katja Kassin Interviewed
"I see someone beat them unconscious in a scene just to stand out, it makes me sick to my stomach"
Porn Valley- Katja Kassin, www.clubkatja.com is interviewed on www.communityx.net. Kassin, 27, moved to LA and has done more than 400 movies since starting in the business about four years ago.
"I think I'm getting along pretty well [in LA]," she says. "I live in a two bedroom apartment, drive a nice car. I learned the language and I got over all the other little obstacles that come to you when you move across the world."
"I guess I'm most famous for my behind and my anal scenes," she goes on to say. Kassin grew up in Leipzig, Germany in the state of Saxonia. [Germany has a federal structure with sixteen states.]
Kassin's the oldest of three children. She has a brother and sister, and her family still lives in Leipzig where Kassin attended school and college. At the age of 18, Kassin left home and started with nude modeling to make extra money and pay her bills.
She had a normal childhood and best remembers times spent at her grandparents each summer where she spent time with her brother chasing butterflies and climbing trees.
"My sister was born when I was six, so most of my earlier childhood memories are with my brother," Kassin says. Though she didn't have her first boyfriend until 16, Kasson remembers having a crush on a boy when she was 14.
"But nothing ever happened, other than me starring at him from a distance," she says. "I was too shy." Kasson also recalls an instance in second grade where she crushed a boy's nose claiming that he deserved it because he was always pushing her around.
"He was a few years older and way bigger than me," she explains. "I wanted my mom to complain at the principal's, but she just told me that I was old enough to take care of my own problems. That's when I just got into a fight with that guy next time he mobbed me. I got a letter from my teacher, and my mom just congratulated me on my success."
From that moment Kassin realized that you have to stand up for yourself and not let anyone take advantage of you.Kassin also went to college for Political Science and German language and literature and got a 2 year degree for both majors.
"I didn't really like the folks I went to class with," she states. "They were all politically confused and I didn't really fit in. When they found out about me doing nude photo shoots, and porn movies I even became more of an outcast."
But Kassin also liked the fact that she could shock the students and professors though she realized she might have to take another career path. While nude modeling in Europe, she made contact with Dru Berrymore.
"She told me I should try to start shooting movies in L.A.," Kassin recalls. "Until that day I had never been in a porn movie, so I was a little concerned if it was even for me. For a porno scene in Germany I would have gotten paid about half of what I was making for a nude shoot so I never really pursued it. But Dru told me that the adult industry is really big in America, and she would introduce me to the right people. So that's when I bought a plane ticket and flew to L.A. in March 2003."
Kassin concedes that porn is a tough job.
"It's hard to make it in a profession where you are the product," she states. Many different people, distribution companies, agents, directors, photographers etc., tell you how you have to be in order to sell you as a product. Sometimes you are too short, too fat, to skinny, to flat chested, not pretty enough and so on. It takes a strong person to understand that this is not personal but business. It can get to you.
"Other than that porn is competitive and some people do crazy things," she continues. "When I see eighteen year old girls drinking their own piss or letting somebody beat them unconscious in a scene just to stand out it makes me sick to my stomach."
Asked about her famous ass, Kassin said you could attribute it to the local mountain spring water, but the fact is it was there as long as she can remember.
"When I was young I hated it," she admits. "I always wanted to be like Kate Moss. Everybody at school teased me for my butt. They called me fat ass and still to this date I don't understand what the big deal is. People sometimes act like I consist of nothing but ass and that bothers the hell out of me."
Kassin goes on to say that she adopted the name Katja because the photographer on her first nude shoot suggested that name, after his niece.
According to Kassin, interracial has never been a problem with her.
"I never excluded or preferred any male or female performer because of their looks or ethnicity," she comments. That being said, Kassin doesn't find interracial being a big deal.
"I respect everybody's decisions because I don't want anybody to tell me how to do things," she says. "And in no way would I ever suggest one should do anything they wouldn't stand up for. But if an actress won't work with another performer because of their race, she has racial issues in my eyes. I don't look at myself as the weirdo because I do IR movies, everybody else who doesn't obviously has a problem."
For her part, Kassin keeps in shape by working out four or five times a week. She has a personal trainer and maintains a low carb diet. Kassin loves meat especially sushi, chicken, and tuna but also enjoys lots tofu, fat free cottage cheese, fruits and vegetables.
"Most of the time I'm naked so there's nothing you can hide or disguise," she reasons. "I want to look good mainly for myself. Otherwise I wouldn't have a good time in my scenes...porn is my job, it pays my bills, so I have to do what keeps me in business." Kassin mentions that after she lost 20 pounds she felt much more comfortable with her body.
On the subject of anal sex, Kassin sees it as something special which takes skills.
"You have to get used to it, and learn how to do it," she says. "I always liked to perform anal scenes just because I'm good at it."
"Do you think your wide backyard has improved your popularity with anal aficionados?" she's asked.
"I'm sure but I'm really sick of questions like that," Kassin replies. "I mean its obvious. When I started I was young and cute and had a big round butt. I did anal with enthusiasm and I didn't back out of working with big dicks or African-American performers. That got me a lot of attention, a lot of work and a lot of money. It kind of stuck to me, but I think there are many things why people in the industry love to work with me."
In Kassin's opinion, the European market is even more competitive than the American one.
"It was amazing for me to see how much attention they pay to what award this actress won or how much press somebody gets," she says.
Earlier this year Kassin and Katsumi produced a movie together, but Kassin doesn't know what's going to happen with the project.
"Right now even big companies that are around forever have trouble selling enough copies and I just don't see how I would outdo them," she states realistically. Instead of running a production company, Kassin said she'll stick with performing and doing what she does best.
"I let the big distributors do their work and I do mine."
Kassin also says she's not one for sexual aggression and doesn't want to go home with bruises.
"For me its all about the basics: good old fashioned horny, steamy sex, nice blow job, horny fucking, some anal and facials," she says. Some of her favorite performers to work with are Jada Fire, Courtney Cummz, and Sandra Romain.
Kassin currently has a boyfriend and is happy with the fact that he's understanding about her job. Asked if she had plans on becoming a mother, Kasson said for now she doesn't feel like it and doesn't sound too excited about the future prospect.
"What would a man have to say to you to make your heart flutter?" she's asked
"Lets go sky diving together," she answers.
Freeones has Interview:
Exclusive interview with Katja Kassin
Katja Kassin interview So when was your first actual porn shoot?
It was back in Germany in May 2002 and I did it because I was planning on going to America to shoot porn. It was like a trial if I’d like it or not.
How was that? Did it feel weird or really good?
It was not a big problem for me since I did modeling work prior to that. I had been modeling for websites for 3 years when I shot my first scene. I mainly worked on solo photo shoots and softcore projects before I started doing b/g movies.
What made you decide to do porn?
The good pay and the chance of me having a career. I wanted to get out of where I was at that point in my life. I just wanted to do something with my life and not be stuck in the same small town in Germany.
What’s your favorite scene?
I don’t watch my movies and I’ve done so many of them I really lost track. But my fans usually like “Crack Addicts” or “Ass Worship 6”
How did you choose your name within the industry?
I picked up the name “Katja” at my first amateur photo shoot in 2000. The photographer suggested it. I didn’t even know that most models worked with a stage name. I added my last name later, I think in 2002 – I got the idea out of the phone book.
Did or do you have a role model?
I always liked Silvia Saint. She was my favorite model/ porn star before I became an actress myself.
How did your family and friends take it when you decided to go into the porn industry?
I didn’t ask them for their opinion, I just informed them about it. I would have done it, no matter what their reaction might have been. I was old enough to make my own decisions and I live my life the way I want.
At the beginning my mom was really freaked out about it. But now she understands that it’s a real career and I go about it in a professional way. My family respects me for being independent and successful.
Of course we want to know some personal information, what’s your favorite movie?
I like “Aimee & Jaguar”, “The Edukators” (“Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei”) and as far as American movies go “Memento”, “Butterfly Effect”
Sushi, Haage Dasz Ice Cream (caramel cone)
Are you close with your fans? And what do you do for them?
I do write on a couple of online boards, I personally answer emails and I write a blog on myspace. I get involved whenever I can.
Do you remember your first kiss? And how do you remember that?
Yeah, it was when I was on a school trip at age 14 and it was horrible. I didn’t even like the guy – he just pushed it onto me.
What did you do before you started to work in the porn industry?
I was going to college and I worked as a waitress.
What do you do when you come home from work?
Watch TV (CSI Miami or reality series), hang out with my boyfriend Adam, go to the gym or go to the movies.
Do you have an active personal sex life? And does your work effect this?
Yes work does effect my personal sex life. I don’t have very much sex at home since I’m so busy performing.
Is the sex with your boyfriend different then when shooting for a movie?
Of course because I’m in love with him.
You have a favorite position or something you think someone really has to try?
Well I really think reverse cowgirl anal looks the best on camera but I’m not that crazy at home. I like cowgirl personally of missionary.
What is your limit with making porn?
I’m very experimental and open for may different things. I like to perform in fetish/bondage movies as much as I like to perform in features. Since the HIV outbreak in 2004 I don’t film creampie scenes anymore. I guess that’s somewhat of a limit for me.
Did you ever do something you now wish you didn’t do?
Yes, I wish I’d always have the guts to say “Kiss my ass”. There are situations when I really felt like walking off set but I’ve been too professional to do it.
Would you prefer lesbian or heterosexual sex?
Heterosexual. I like to perform with girls on camera but I’ve never had a lesbian encounter in my personal life. The fun about performing for me is more showing off, like “look how I touch her tits” and whatnot but I’m not bi-sexual.
Is there someone you really enjoy working with?
What’s been your worst experience on the set?
When I had to pose outside in January and I was yelled at by the photographer for looking not too happy.
And the weirdest or funniest thing you experienced?
Working in porn is always kind of weird. There is northing normal about it, believe me. If you’d put a civilian on set and the gad to listen to the kind of conversations that are going on, they would be both shocked and amused.
And if there’s anyone you can choose to make a movie with, who would it be?
I would really love to work for Suze or Holly Randall and I would like to perform with Stormy Daniels.
Do you have any tips or advice to people who want to work in the industry?
They should know that their family and friends will always find out about it and they should tell them before a friendly neighbor drops one of their movies into grandma’s mail box
You have a new movie coming out we can all wait for?
My first movie that I directed for Kylie Ireland’s company “SlutWerkz” comes out in September. It’s called “To the hilt” and has Sandra Romain, Jayna Oso, Ashley Blue, Sophie Dee and myself.
Katja Kassin: An Asshole is Not a Pussy; You Cannot Just Stick It In
I like big dicks in my ass. The small dicks feel strange because the muscle doesn't stretch all the way.
Tom Byron was shooting copper-haired German beauty Katja Kassin Friday for a scene in Black Up That White Ass 2. Before Katja took it in the shitter we had the following conversation. Unlike Casey Kasem, Katja puts the accent on the second syllable.
KK: My first scene in the U.S. was shot in March this year. I had only done two scenes in Europe before that, before I came over here.
Gene: You live out here or travel back and forth.
KK: I travel back and forth for now. And now I will go back to Germany for Christmas and then I'll be back in January for the show.
Gene: How do you celebrate Christmas in Germany.
KK: The thing that is different is that I've never worn a bikini on Christmas. In Germany it's really cold on Christmas.
Gene: That's a shame. That covers up that butt of yours.
KK: LOL. We cook and we have a Christmas tree and get presents. I think it's pretty much the same as here.
Gene: What made you decide to come into the adult business?
KK: I started doing nude modeling, solo girl stuff and all the softcore things. I never thought of being in porn movies. In Germany I didn't have the opportunity to do it. I met someone who introduced me to my agent Mark Spiegler. I got on to a plane right away. I was a bit afraid because I didn't know if I could understand the language and people would like me.
Gene: You speak it very well.
KK: But you don't know that before you go to the country.
Gene: You must have been an athlete with those legs. Did you have sports in school?
KK: No, it's just there. I go to the gym a little bit if I have the time. But not like other people who go four times a week.
Gene: What were you doing before you got into the business.
KK: I went to school. I went to the university studying.
KK: German language and literature and political science.
Gene: Were you going to teach?
KK: No. I wanted to write for magazines. Something like that. Or political research. But I'm not done with school yet. I'm going to finish.
Gene: That's something you're going to do after this business?
KK: I didn't have plans what I should do with my life and my studies. My parents pushed me into it. But it's not a bad thing to go to the university. I just did it and said let's see what happens.
Gene: What were you like growing up.
KK: I'm from a big family. So I learned early in my life to share things. Sometimes I got into fights with my brothers and sisters. I think that helped a lot. And I spent a lot of time with my younger brother. He's one year younger than me. We went out together all the time. I like being with people.
Gene: Were you sexually active in school?
KK: The first time I had sex was when I just turned 16. I didn't think it was early; I didn't think it was late, I think it's average. I didn't like it at all because I wanted to make it a special event. He lived a little bit away from me so we spent the weekend. He did sports, swimming.
Gene: Was he much older than you?
KK: He was three years older. He had a competition that day and he came home late at night and I was already asleep. He kind of pushed me into it. But I wanted to get it over. I didn't like it and said I'm never going to do this again!
Gene: But you wound up doing it again.
KK: Yeah, but I think it's the same with everybody. I know so many girls who said they didn't like it the first time.
Gene: Was this a steady boyfriend.
KK: I was with him four months before it happened. Later I spent one year with him.
Gene: Have you been with girls off camera.
KK: I've been with girls. When I was 18 I was with a girl. I met her on a photo shoot and I was kind of making out with her after that. Once you have sex in front of a camera you get close to each other so it's really not a problem to do it afterwards.
Gene: Who are some of the American performers you like to work with.
KK: There's so many European guys around so I don't even remember who's American. But I love the black performers like Daren James and Lexington. They're really nice.
Gene: What do you particularly like about them.
KK: I think they got a kind of rhythm and treat the girl like a queen.
Gene: Do you like big dicks, small dicks, in between dicks?
KK: I like big dicks. If I watch a movie and I've been watching movies a lot- I started when I was 14 years old- I always liked to watch big dicks.
Gene: What is there about a big dick?
KK: I think people have small dicks in their private lives so when thy watch a movie they want to see something special. It's like when you go to the movies and you see Bruce Willis. You don't want to see him sitting in front of the TV like you do all evening. You want him to fight and shoot. It's not real. You go to the cinema because you want to see the adventure. You want to see something you don't have in your life.
Gene: What does a big dick do to you, physically.
KK: I like big dicks in my ass. The small dicks feel strange because the muscle doesn't stretch all the way. And I know Belladonna thinks the same because I've talked to her about this issue. There must be something about it. And I don't like the small dildos. There's a certain size that feels good when the muscle stretches.
Gene: When was the first time you tried anal.
KK: I was 19 years old. It was in my private life with my boyfriend and I didn't like it. It was psychological and he didn't know how to do it to me at all. An asshole is not a pussy. You can not just stick it in. You have to like maybe use a dildo or fingers before to stretch it. I was afraid of it and that's why I couldn't relax. And it took me quite awhile before I could get comfortable with it. But I'm glad I had the experience in my private life and now I can do it in my scenes.
Gene: It seems like anal sex is second nature for European women. Why is it that European girls seem to be more into it than American girls.
KK: Maybe they are open minded or not ashamed. They're not ashamed to try it out. But I don't know. I can only speak for myself. I like it and there'd be something missing if I never did it.
Gene: Has the business been good for you so far.
KK: Yeah. I tried so many things that I would never have done if I wasn't in the business. I've been with more than just one guy. I've done double anal...
Gene: How does that feel?
KK: I have to start in reverse cowgirl. It's cool. It feel good. Now my personal sex life is different. When you used to junk food you always eat it and you don't know there's something missing. But when somebody takes you to a fancy restaurant and you experience what you can't get, you don't want to eat junk food any more.
Gene: You mentioned a personal sex life. Do you have one any more?
KK: Yeah, it's different. Because on the set there's a director that tells you what to do. And when I really like the guy I get so pissed if they make me look to the camera in the cowgirl and I just want to look at the guy. And when it's good they say, let's do the pop shot, we don't need any more. I'm like, on no, what's going on. I'm not done yet. Sometimes it's like that. So you have to have a private sex life.
Gene: Does your family know you're in the business?
KK: I told them when I started doing the nude pictures and I had a big discussion with them about the nude pictures. It wasn't really a big problem. And when I told them I did the movies they said it's my job and they accept that I earn my money this way. But don't tell us about it. We don't want to know.
Gene: But when you go home they're going to be asking you.
KK: They don't ask me about the job. They ask me is everything okay. Are you satisfied with what happened to you. They don't really want to know what I do in my scenes and stuff.
Good things come in small packages: An interview with German anal princess Katja Kassin
By Troy Michael
© 2006 IWAdult – Originally published in Genesis Magazine
Katja Kassin is the small German import that packs a lot of anal punch since she has been working in the adult film industry for the last three years. Kassin was born and raised in Leipzig Germany and since November 2004, she has lived in Canoga Park, California
The recently married 24-year-old, 5' 1” dark haired cherub has more then 300 films under her belt, 90 percent of which are anal. Kassin has a passion for taking one or more cocks up her ass and has accumulated a legion of fans because of it. She can take just about anything up her sweet ass stating, “I love to take two cocks up my ass at once because it feels good and the shock value is also fun.” She also can fist her own ass, a pretty impressive feat considering she is just barely over five foot tall.
Genesis: In January of 2004 you got married to a fellow porn star. Congratulations. How is that going?
Being married is good and good for me. I met my husband on set and we hit it off. Now we are like the homebody married couple away from our jobs.
Since you tied the knot, you have taken on a strict exercise regime. What’s that all about?
I am very passionate about working out now. I started over a year ago and it makes me feel so much better about myself. Some companies…well they weren’t hiring me because of my weight. Not that I was extremely overweight or anything, but I was thick compared to a lot of the younger girls coming into the business.
Did you start working out to spite the film companies that didn’t hire you?
No. I love working in porn, I don’t want to burn any bridges. I have done a lot of films and made a few really good friends…I love what I do. So if I didn’t lose the weight and tone up, then I wouldn’t be working in porn anymore. So I totally changed my lifestyle. I got married. I started working out because we have gym right in our house. I totally changed my eating habits. It is tough, but in the end it is worth it.
How has the exercising changed your outlook?
I feel way better about myself. At work I do the best I can, I don’t take it personal when people say bad things about me now. I know I am doing all I can to make good movies. Ultimately, I don’t want people to see me badly when I am naked.
In the last few years, your life has made drastic changes from getting married to coming to Porn Valley. Was it overwhelming for you coming from Germany to the United States?
When I came to the US, I never saw a seven-lane freeway or so many people in one city, or a super market with so much shit in it. Everyone spends so much money on food here. I learned you can’t put that shit in your body. It’s just not good for you.
Also, in Europe there is much distance between cities and communities, and it’s much darker. Everything in the States is so neon bright and flashy. It was really strange getting used to that. In Germany you feel very much alone. Here you can know everyone. You can have real true friends and people to hang with. People are always here to help you too. If you want to go out for drinks or to the club it is right around the corner. Or if you need a ride to a shoot your friends will drive you. It is really nice. Even if you just want to sit at home on the couch watching movies and have girl talk, there are always a couple friends up for doing that too.
Now you are fit and trim and ready for love. You are well known for your anal antics. When did you start this anal fetish?
I didn’t start doing anal until later in my life compared to these new girls coming in at 18 and 19-years old. It just takes practice, it is fun and it is what I am good at.
What is it about anal sex that you are so attracted to?
I think anal sex is kind of taboo, that’s why I like it. Other than that is just looks really beautiful and nasty at the same time. It excites me to know I push limits or go beyond what other people don’t even dare to talk about.
Have you ever done something in a film and thought to yourself “I can’t believe I am doing this?”
The scene from “I Wanna Get Face Fucked” with Tony T. I had fun doing it and everything was ok shooting it but when I watched it I really though it looked super aggressive and rough. Sometimes certain sex acts look more dramatic than they feel while you are doing it.
What is the funniest or most embarrassing thing that has happened to you while on the set of a film?
I did a movie for Adam & Eve. It was a Nazi porn and they wanted everybody to say German dialog which turned out to be the funniest moment for me on set ever. I ended up trying to teach my co-stars how to say the lines but I must say it didn’t turn out exactly perfect.
What won’t you do in your sex life?
Of course everybody has their own likes and dislikes when it comes to sex, but I don’t want to make a list. Some things just depend on the situation or the person you are with. I would say I’m a very open minded person. My motto is “I only do to others what I would allow them to do to me”. I have a hard time doing things to others that I’m not comfortable with myself. If you are asking about my private sex life, it’s very different from what you see me do on camera. I only have sex with my husband off camera and I’m not a swinger and I don’t want to hook up with other people. I would never share my husband with anybody when we are together and I want to be only for him. Sex in front of the camera is a performance and I do things there that I would find strange at home. At home I do whatever feels best and on camera I do whatever looks best.
How does the family feel about your fucking on film success?
My brother always calls me up and asks me to talk to his friends because they think he is lying about his sister being a porn star. So I talk to them and they seem to be speechless. I also get request from my brother through his friends to send autographs. It is quite funny.
How did this career choice sit with Mom and Dad? After all, there little girl is getting fucked usually in the ass by big cocks.
I always wanted to move away from Germany when I was younger, so getting into the adult film industry has allowed me to do so. I don’t hate Germany, don’t get me wrong. I just wanted to experience something different, not necessarily porn, just different cultures and lifestyles. My parents knew that. So my parents accept it, they don’t like it, but they accept it. They know I’ve experienced a lot great things due to my job.
When you get to go back to your homeland, do you get treated like a star?
People don’t know who I am when I am out shopping or going to a movie. I have no make up on and I am wearing jeans and tennis shoes with my hair up. So it’s not like I am famous or anything. I don’t run around in corsets and g-strings. I look totally different from when I am on a porn set.
You actually don’t go home much to see your friends and family in Germany, why is that?
Well I only get to see my brother and parents about once or twice a year. It is difficult because of the hassles of immigration getting back into the United States. It is extremely difficult to get to and from customs because of my heritage. I have to re-file for a work permit and citizenship, get medical exam and finger prints for the FBI. Also I really don’t want to go back because of the cold weather.
Before coming to the United States to do porn films what did you do?
I was a nude model in Germany and I did print layouts. I was pretty well known for the modeling work. I was actually making more money for the magazine shoots then the porn stars were in Germany.
If you were a cartoon character who would you like to be?
I would be Cartman from South Park. He is so cool I wish I could be like him when I was a kid. He is so outspoken and funny. I was normal kid, a tomboy. I had a younger brother and we were best friends. We hung out with his friends so I was always doing boy things. I also got very good grades because I loved doing my homework.
Katja Kasin must have been doing her homework recently, as she took home an AVN Award in January for Best Solo Scene from the film “Anal Showdown” (Darkko/Evil Angel). With her new out look physically and mentally, you can bet you your ass (or hers) on seeing a lot more success coming for Katja Kassin.
