Popular Pinay Pornstar!

I watched Pinoy Meets World on GMA7 the other night. Miriam Quiambao featured Pinoys in the West Coast. One Filipino that was featured that really caught my attention was a popular Asian porn star, Mimi Miyagi.

Mimi Miyagi is actually Melody Damayo, born in Davao but grew up in California. She openly admitted on international tv (ehem) that she's not ashamed to admit what she does and who she is. She said that there are some Pinays in the porn industry but won't admit what they do for obvious reasons. Mimi said that in college, she had to get into this job for financial reasons and being a porn star helped her pay for her college tuition. Her family and relatives condemned her for her choice of work. Most of her relatives are either doctors, nurses, physical therapists, she called these occupations as Filipino occupations (hehehe) but she didn't want any typical occupation for herself. Apparently, she's not like anyone else or everyone else.

Watching her express herself that way makes me think that she's very smart and knows what she's doing. She looks clean and healthy, so I would think she's no junkie. She said that her daughter knows what she does and she's hoping her kid won't go into the same business as she has. Mimi said that's the reason why she's working very hard to provide her daughter with a better future financially so she wouldn't have to go into the porn industry herself.

She does all kinds of crazy things to get attention. She is running for office in Nevada as Governor. A Pinoy porn star governor of a US state? She's truly 100% Pinoy! Hehehe!

She even has a Wikipedia entry!

Miyagi was born in Davao City, the Philippines on July 3, 1973, the second of four children to immigrant parents Mike Ariesgado and Luz Damayo. As a child, Mimi was something of a prodigy. She spent her childhood studying piano and dreaming of
becoming an Olympic gymnast.
She returned to LA just before her 18th birthday with a little over $1,000 to her name. Within a month, she'd run out of money and begun looking for jobs. She met with little success until she reached the age of consent.
Adult film career
Mimi came across an ad looking for nude models and answered it, thus beginning her rise in the adult film industry. Even though Mimi was always the least paid actress on the set, she continued knocking on studio producers doors. By this time she was becoming quite popular for her abilities to take well-endowed men during ... (text removed due to explicit words hehehe) scenes. She was also building a fan base due to her lesbian scenes. Mimi also had several surgeries to increase her natural "B" cup breasts to "DD" size.

Good for her! If that's where she's happy (and making much money from) then no one should be so self-righteous as outright condemn her.

I've heard enough stories about people who, though not of libidinous nature, discreetly engage in despicable back-stabbing acts merely to protect their mundane jobs.

I admire her for her guts and honesty. Mahirap umamin na ganon ang work considering our "conservative" culture.

I checked out her blog and she's an interesting person, in my opinion. She got figured in an accident and I hope she will get well soon.

Her blog is a nice read and very enticing too :) Hehehehehe!
