Adriana Chechik stood within 40 feet of white rhinos on the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve in Kruger National Park in South Africa in the fall.
She watched a zebra run past her and came too close for comfort to a pair of hyenas. The 2017 AVN Female Performer of Year fulfilled a dream when she hung off the edge of Victoria Falls—one of the largest waterfalls in the world at 360 feet high—in Zambia.
She smoked “crazy hash” in Qatar, “discovered magic” in Thailand, explored the Australian Outback and marveled at the most spectacular fireworks show she’d ever seen on New Year’s Eve on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
When the notorious performer also known as “BratNasty” isn’t pushing her sexual limits on camera, there’s a good chance she’s quenching her wanderlust.
“Oh my gosh I love it—I love traveling,” Chechik says. “It’s like I feel even crazier now that we’re stuck in quarantine because for me the breaking point was when they shut off Europe.
“Because I actually had—I’m missing four trips right now. And hopefully it’ll happen… at the end of June I was supposed to go to Italy for 20 days. And then the Slovenian Alps to do an 11-day after that of just biking and canoeing and canyoneering.
“I feel like the only time I ever get true growth or understanding is when I travel.
“Because you can put somebody in a room in a situation but until they go somewhere and actually experience how other people live—whether it’s good or bad—you don’t really grasp it.
“It makes me appreciate everything in life.”
Dressed in a comfy blue hoodie with Nike emblazoned on the chest with no makeup on, the natural beauty is quarantining at her home in the San Fernando Valley as the city of LA navigates its fourth week of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I got out for a hike today,” Chechik says. “My dogs are so crazy they literally don’t let me get any sleep and they follow me around the house. And when I say that, it’s not like a normal dog. They’re crazy about it because they’re terriers.
“So I was like, alright I’ve got to take you somewhere.”
Chechik tells me she’s thrilled about her second cover of AVN magazine. Her first was in March 2017—two months after she claimed the AVN Performer of the Year crown. That image saw an ecstatic Chechik planting a kiss on the cheek of Mick Blue—the Male Performer of the Year—when he hoisted her up in the winner’s circle backstage.
“I’m so excited because the only other time I’ve been on the cover of AVN I was crying,” Chechik says. “It’ll be nice to see myself looking glamorous.”
It’s that combination of effortless glamour coupled with an insatiable appetite for hardcore sex that has catapulted Chechik to future legend status in industry circles, not to mention attracted a global fan following.
The 28-year-old native of Downington, Pennsylvania—about 30 miles west of Philadelphia—at press time in April was approaching 900 million video views on Pornhub with almost 600,000 subscribers. Those numbers have her entrenched in the Top 10 Most Popular Porn Stars on the industry’s most trafficked site—a level she’s been maintaining for more than two years. Meanwhile, Chechik had amassed more than 2.3 million followers on Instagram at @bratnasty69 and another 727,000 on Twitter, where her bio reads “the nastiest holes in porn.”
“It’s awesome,” Chechik says. “But it’s really only because I fuck my fans. That’s what I tell everybody—that’s the secret. You want people to like you? You bang ’em all.”
She continues, “I look back at my life and I’m thankful for it but I am the type of person when I start things I’m so headstrong and driven. When I first got into porn when I was a stripper I was like, ‘I’m gonna be the best porn star. I’m gonna have a Fleshlight.’
“And I never thought anything less so I don’t think I ever get shocked about how things turn out because I believe in myself so much that I’m just like… It sounds a little cocky to say it out loud but…
“I remember like a year ago I had gone to a therapist and was talking to them and realized that conversation and I was like, ‘Well shit, why don’t I tell myself I’m going to be an astronaut or something?’ Because everything I’ve always said, I’ve done. So like I want to go to the moon or somewhere cool.”
