Asia proceeded to tell me the story of how she ended up kissing a dog in Abel Ferrara's Go Go Tales. Later on I watched the scene. Yes its slightly shocking and very weird but isn't that the point? “It almost ruined my career” Asia tells me later. “Out of all the shocking, trashy and hardcore scenes I've done in my life, I never expected this one to be so scandalous and it made me feel ashamed”. Asia plays the role of a stripper. During a striptease, she leans provocatively towards the dog and sticks out her tongue. The animal licks her mouth and she lingers for a second or two before pulling back and continuing her dance. The scandal lost her several movie contracts and made her a figure of hate and ridicule in Italy.
