Award-winning showgirl Ashton avenue goes all-in and bares all for black label.
Hey Ashton, how did you get your start in performing?
I actually started as a lingerie waitress and used to work all around Western Australia from Port Headland to Esperance to Albany. I met a showgirl along my travels who used to feature at The Voodoo Lounge who told me to go have a look as I wanted to start dancing. I went in, met the staff, loved the place and the rest is history!
What do you love most about being on stage?
I’m actually quite a shy person and when I'm on stage, I feel like a different side of me comes out. Plus, what girl doesn’t like rolling around in sexy underwear?
Have you always been a confident person?
No! No one actually believes me when I tell them but I’m actually very shy in my 'day to day’ life... But my close friends and family know I’m a little hermit crab. I come out of my shell for a little bit and then scurry back in. That’s one of the things I love about my job. I get to explore a different side of myself and express it. I’m a introverted extrovert.
What made you decide to do your first nude shoot for Penthouse?
From earlier on in my career I knew I wanted my magazine debut to be on the cover of Penthouse and I wasn’t going to settle for anything but that. So I’ve patiently waited for the opportunity to come along.
How did you find the experience?
I had so much fun with my shoot! I love this shoot and how much creative control I was given. I chose Danial Gowans as my photographer as I had shot with him twice before and I loved how our last two shoots turned out. I picked a car wash theme as I thought we could have a lot of fun with the bubbles and a hose and as corny as it sounds... I love being wet! I was cold and it was hard to look sexy while being sprayed with a hose but I don’t think I did too badly...
What awards/crowns have you won?
I’ve been dancing for a while so I’ve got a couple of titles under my little belt but my favourites would have to be my first title: ‘Miss Dreambody' which I won at the Exotic Angels National Finals at Hollywoods on the Gold Coast. I also won ‘Most Erotic Dancer in WA' which I won at the S.T.A.R awards at The Voodoo Lounge in Perth. I also won Best Lesbian Stripper in WA that year and my big one which I won twice: Miss Erotic Australia.
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
This cover obviously!
What are you looking forward to most about Melbourne Sexpo?
Well this is my first Sexpo, so I’m really looking forward to just being there and having a good time! I will be at my girl Isabelle Deltore’s booth, not only are we both featuring in Black Label this month but we are celebrating the launch of her premium adult site lsabelledeltore.com Where are you currently performing?
You can find me most week/weekends at Showgirls Bar20 in Melbourne or book me privately from a selective group of agency’s that represent me. I also travel a lot around Australia performing. All of my travel plans plus agency’s you can book me from are available on my Instagram,Twitter and Facebook page What type of games are you into?
I love playing naked Twister with my girls! I also love drinking games and role playing. My housemate and travel partner Alana James is a poker dealer and usually ropes me into a round or three of strip poker when we are hostessing a bucks night or birthday party. Kind of doesn't really work when all we are wearing is stockings and a suspender belt though... Might have to work on my poker face! o*-*
