Jessica Andrea Steinhauser (1973-) is a retired adult film actress. Known amongst fans for being able to build her own computer she gladly accepts the title of geek. She is a member of Mensa and attended Rutgers University on a full academic scholarship.
She writes on 09-Feb-2004: Allow me to confirm that yes, I am a diehard atheist, and have been since I was about 5 and discovered to my annoyance that there was no santa claus, no easter bunny, and no tooth fairy. well, that was it for me - I resolved then and there that no one was going to sucker ME into believing in any more invisible characters with superpowers! as I grew older, the more I learned about the histories of organized religions, the more convinced I became that (a) people around the world are extremely gullible, and (b) i need to get off my ass and start a religion of my own!
"So me, the completely unsuperstitious atheist, goes and posts on a message board that 'no, I don't believe in bad luck on Friday the 13th.'" - Asia Carrera on her website via a bulletin on July 13, 2006.
When Asia began performing, she took books on physics with her to the set. But after getting teased, she switched to Stephen King novels. In addition to suspense novels, Asia and [Director Bud Lee] also read on satanism -- a fascination in Porn Valley where many believe that the enemy of their enemy is their friend. The thinking goes this way -- "If Christianity hates pornography, and Christianity hates Satan, then Satan and I have a lot in common."
"I've always been an atheist," says Asia. "Science explains everything. There is no meaning in life except to be the best at something. If only I could be the best at something, perhaps my parents would love me.
"Religion is silly," says Asia. "When you're dead, you turn into a source for future flowers and plants.... I don't know what's on the other side of death and it scares me. Darkness and nothingness scare me. I'd rather face the miseries of my day-to-day life than turn into darkness.

"All of a sudden I find atheism to be a big relief - otherwise I think I would have started painting all my ceilings with lead so I could get a little privacy around here! Hehehe!! - Asia Carrera bulletin
A contributor on the [message board] reports that at her site, Carrera says that the reference to her readings of satanism are false, simply made up by her soon to be ex-husband.
