In May 2006, Grey moved to Los Angeles, California, and performed in hardcore pornography. She initially considered calling herself Anna Karina, after the French New Wave actress of the same name, before choosing Sasha Grey. The name ‘Sasha’ was taken from Sascha Konietzko of the band KMFDM and ‘Grey’ came from Oscar Wilde‘s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray or, alternatively, from the Kinsey scale, a measurement of homosexual and heterosexual attraction.
