Nadia Ali is a Pakistani American erotic dancer who was a pornographic actress from 2015 to 2016. She has been “banned” from Pakistan for performing in pornography in a hijab and also has received online threats of killing.
Early life of Nadia Ali
Nadia was born to a Muslim Pakistani-American family, and she grew up in New Jersey. She was raised as a Muslim, although she did not wear a hijab, In an interview on July 2016 with Refinery29, she stated that still identified herself as a “practicing Muslim“, and that in between her work, she still prays five times a day. She is the second of her family. She felt isolated by her family’s conservatism although she did not wear a hijab. Nadia speaks Punjabi and Hindi-Urdu.
Nadia moved out to San Francisco and set up a business threading eyebrows, until, in 2013, she was encouraged by a friend to perform at a strip club. Influenced by making $500 in one night, she continued as a stripper.
Career of Nadia Ali
Nadia started her career in the adult industry in 2015. She was encouraged to wear a hijab in pornography due to sexual taboo and to increase her opportunities. One of her films, titled Women of the Middle East, involved domestic violence turning into sex when the man becomes aroused. Its advertising blurb reads: “They may look suppressed, but given an opportunity to express themselves freely, their wild, untamable natural sexuality is released. This may just be what was in bin Laden’s porn collection, experience it for yourself.” She blames culture, rather than religion, for patriarchy in Pakistan and has said she wanted to make solo and lesbian scenes to “show the world that south asian girls of Pakistani descent really do get horny.” She has said that she has been “banned” from Pakistan for performing in pornography in a hijab and also that she has received on-line threats of beheading.
In 2016, she left the pornographic industry after making twenty scenes, as she found the idea of her 21st film, of a man resembling Donald Trump having sex with a Muslim woman, to be degrading. Her bookings to perform in Florida after the 2016 Pulse Orlando shooting were canceled for fear of backlash. Calling adult entertainment a “stepping stone” to bigger things, she told Refinery29 that she wanted to move into the beauty business.
