CYBERSPACE—Sssh.com, which is sponsoring the upcoming “Women in Porn: Shattering the Myths” online debate, has announced that adult performer/producer Ashley Fires will join the discussion panel, which is scheduled for July 22.
“In addition to being an outstanding performer, Ashley is a independent thinker, and brilliant business women,” said Angie Rowntree, owner of Sssh.com and organizer of Women in Porn: Shattering the Myths. “Ashley can speak firsthand about life in the industry on both sides of the camera, and from the perspective of an entrepreneur, as well. It’s a broad and diverse point of view, and it makes her an ideal participant for this event.”
Fires said she’s looking forward to the opportunity to address some of the criticisms directed at the adult industry – and at women like herself. "I am very honored and much obliged to be part of this discussion with these amazing women," she said. "I hope this debate will help to clarify the stereo types and shatter the myths about women in the adult industry."

She garnered the 2013 award for Sexiest Adult Star at the 2013 edition of The Sex Awards, and has been nominated for multiple awards, including the XBIZ Awards for Best Web Starlet and Best Performer every year from 2008 to 2013.
