Spearmint Rhino Entertainer of the Year
Dancer Magazine's CenterStage girl for May 2009 is the reigning
Spearmint Rhino Entertainer of the Year, Christina Aguchi. She won
that honor back in October, beating out the top performers representing
Spearmint Rhino clubs from across the country. Christina recently
participated in the annual Penthouse Golden G-string Awards held
at the Penthouse Club in New Orleans and was awarded the Bronze
Medal in the Showgirl division. In early 2008, she retired from
a brief career in the adult film industry where she worked for such
companies as Adam & Eve, Hustler Video and Wicked Pictures.
We recently caught up with the Asian hardbody while taking a break
from her cross country tour of Spearmint Rhino clubs.
Dancer Magazine (PDM): Where are you from
Christina Aguchi (CA): Baton Rouge,
What was your life like growing up?
CA: I had a great childhood. I grew up in a nice
little town with amazing friends, a wonderful family.
How and when did you decide to get into the business?
CA: I was actually conned into the biz. I was on
one model place one day and a photographer said that he was going
to fly me to L.A. for a bikini shoot which pays 1000 dollars. He
flew me out here. I had no money and he took me and this other girl
to his house and said, "let's shoot the scene." My ego
did not let me call home and tell my mom to fly me back and that
this was a mistake. So I ended up shooting the scene and making
1000 dollars cash. The money came so quick and easy. I knew if that
was that easy, there's gotta be a way to make more. And that is
how I and most people in California get stuck.
What was your first experience in the business like?
CA: Horrible...(read the above LOL)
What is the craziest/funniest thing that ever happened to you in
CA: Jack Napier and I was sitting BTS and this
girl ran straight into a glass door right in front of it. I mean
knocked herself out. The door looked like it was open. I hope it's
not one of those you had to be there for it to be funny moments
Does your family know about your chosen profession and how do they
feel about it?
CA: Unfortunately I am no longer performing. Just
dancing, but yes they do know and as parents they will love me no
matter what. Seeing me retire from film made them realize that I
am old enough to made decisions on my own.
What do you like about the business? What don't you like?
CA: Of course, the attention, the money and the
short term celebritism. Cons-the drugs, the influence, the cut-throat
people, and the fact that everyone is for themselves.
What are your hobbies and interests outside of the work?
CA: I love dancing, spending time with my dogs.
Boyfriend. And most importantly, pole dancing. It’s my only
workout. I’m pretty fucking great at it if you ask me
Personally and/or professionally, What you do see yourself doing
in 5 years? In 10 years?
CA: In about 5 years, I will be completely retired
for anything related to the adult industry. I will no longer be
living in California, I will marry my boyfriend, probably have a
few kids, and an established business I can call my own little empire.
I figure I won’t look like this forever and there is a small
window in which I can do this and that time is now. Work hard, save
my money, and get the fuck out of L.A. LOL.
What do you look for in a guy?
CA: Good looking of course, great sense of humor,
takes care of himself, and older than me by at least 10 years. I
like the type of man that can always teach me something new.
What do you value most in life?
CA: I value the fact that I wake up every morning
with no regrets. Accepting the mistakes in my life and not deny
them. Only take them as a lesson learned and move on. Value my loving
family and I guess most importantly, life itself.
What projects you are currently working on? What can we expect from
you in the very near future?
CA: Right now, my current career is feature dancing.
I have a year contract with the Spearmint Rhino; the greatest clubs
with the most wonderful people I've ever worked with in them. I
am currently hitting all the rhinos across the country, booked by
of course Tony Lee of the Lee Network. I can't wait till October
for the next Entertainer of the Year. I'm very curious to know who
I will be passing the crown onto. LOL.
And aside from the Rhinos, I am exclusively booked through feature
dancing agencies A List Features and Continental Agency with Dave
Michaels and Frank Bane. Those two guys keep me bouncing around
and fills up my non Rhino weekends. Thanks D. Michaels and Uncle
Frank. Thank you so much Private Dancer for your time. I’ll
hope to see you all on the road in the near future.
