Anya Olsen hears it all the time - she looks like Avril Lavigne! She even joked about it with Manuel Ferrara when she appeared on his YouTube stream in 2016. Anya may indeed resemble Avril, but the sweet notes she has sounded during her porn career rival anything the pop star could ever produce!
Anya was born in upstate New York but spent most of her childhood in Kansas, where she was largely hidden away from coastal vices. "Didn't know anything about drugs, alcohol or sex, nothing like that, super sheltered," she told Adult DVD Talk in 2017. That reversed itself in spectacular fashion when Olsen's family returned to New York, where Anya lost her virginity at the age of 13. By her own admission, she then became wildly promiscuous, so much so that her first blowjob was performed in the back of a loaded school bus. ("We got called down to the principal's office. I didn't get kicked out, at that point, just a stern talking to," she joked.)
Prior to porn, Anya dabbled in bartending and real estate. Pornstar Ashley Fires and her husband, porn director Jack Kona, approached Anya at the bar where she worked. They suggested that she might be ideal as a performer in a porn shoot! Her first scene was a solo masturbates sequence, and before long, she found her groove. "It came natural and I fell in love. I am able to express myself on camera," she said in an interview with XConfessions. In 2017, she was honored with XBIZ and AVN nominations for Best New Starlet, and won Spank Bank's Most Luscious Labia award.
Some of Anya's most spectacular work has been done with prestigious director Greg Lansky. She shot both her first anal (First Anal Vol. 2) and first double penetration ( My DP Vol. 2) under Lanksy's Tushy label. Eventually, she signed a one-year exclusive contract with the company for all her anal scenes within that period. "I love working for Greg because he's just amazing. I would only work for him if I could. His stuff is just so tasteful and it just comes out so beautifully. It's classy porn," Anya told AVN.
