August Ames Wiki And Biography
August was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. She grew up in Petawawa, Ontario and later lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
She graduated from Oromocto High School.
Ames was of Polish ancestry and was also one—quarter African—American. August Ames’s parents worked in the army. Her mother was suffered from bipolar disorder.
August spent her early years as a military brat, including a number of years living beside Canadian Forces Base Petawawa.
Ames claimed that she was routinely s*xually molested by her paternal grandfather as a child. But August Ames’s father refused to believe her and she was sent to live in a group home when she was only 12 years old. In her early years, Ames worked as a nanny, animal—assisted aide, and horseback trainer.
August was a shy girl before she reached her 11th grade but after taking up cheerleading Ames soon began to establish a reputation as a party girl;
“I grew up all around Canada. I was born in Nova Scotia but I’m an army brat; my dad was in the army. I was kind of a little loser, it was in Grade 11 in high school when I got hot. 😊 I wasn’t very sociable, I had some friends but it wasn’t until the last year of high school when I got into cheerleading, it was awesome! It wasn’t the greatest experience growing up. 😊…
I got a bad reputation by the time I finished high school because I wanted to have fun. Apparently, everyone was so hurt by that. I lived in a really small town so if a girl had one boyfriend, then broke up with him and got another boyfriend the next week, she’d be classified as a skank. I like to say small towns, small minds. But apparently, everyone is ok with me doing p*rn, they think it’s awesome! 😊”.
“I went through a lot of different phases in high school. At the beginning of high school, I was very sweet, very quiet. Then as I got older I started hanging out with different crowds. I don’t feel like I was anything specific because I was a cheerleader, had good grades, plus I was a big stoner who loved to party on Friday nights”.
August lost her virginity when she was only 17 years old. She revealed;
“I had just moved back to this town I was living in and one of my girlfriend’s decided to hook me up with her boyfriend’s best friend. So we started dating and he was really sweet and nice. He was a bad boy guy in a band and one night we were having a bonfire in the backyard. We had a blanket laid out in the backyard underneath the stars. It happened like that. It was summer, it was nice and warm out and I trusted him. It was a good time. We broke up, we’re still friends. We’re still cool. So it’s a story I don’t regret”.
Within previous interviews she has recounted how she had two relationships before entering the adult industry but had multiple one night stands.
Ames was the definitive wild girl during her high school years and even started sexting her history teacher!! She divulged within her interview how this history teacher sent her a ‘dick pic’ ;
“He was so hot…He sent it to me the week during exams. We would sext back and forth and then two weeks after school was done, I moved to a different Province. Then he texted me to hang out but nothing ever happened…I would send him nudes too. I would send them before class just to be a tease. 😊”.
August Ames revealed how she was also involved in an wrong relationship with her brother’s friend;
“We hooked up at a party that both my brothers were at. I have two older brothers and he was their best friend forever, ever since we were kids. I’ve always known him but we were never friends because we never hung out together. Not too long ago, we were all at this party and I was really tired and wanted to go to sleep. The friend said that I could sleep in his room. He came in and we ended up sleeping together. My brothers were right outside with the rest of the party. We had to be really quiet and my brothers still don’t know about it”.
Before becoming a p*rn star she posed for some local modelling shoots and had always wanted to work as an erotic model.
When she was at 19, Ames searched for modelling agencies online and stumbled upon a link titled “Be A Model”.
In no time at all she was booked to feature within her first p*rn film shoot in late 2013. But, she never knew that her career would take off in this manner. She stated;
“I never, ever thought I’d make a name for myself, I thought I’d just make a few extra bucks. Even at the beginning when I started, I thought I su*ked ass. 😊 I didn’t think I was good at all, I didn’t think anybody would like me. I just had to get my confidence up I guess”.
When asked why Ames became a p*rn star August simply stated that;
“I was honestly bored. I was working two jobs, I was bartending and I was also working at a tanning salon. I’m a very impulsive person and I decided to try out the industry, just to see what it’s like, in Canada. I wanted to go to the States and go full-throttle with it. I don’t like to half-ass anything. I like to do it and do it right. Be amazing at it. I can’t be a teacher after this so I might as well kill it”.
August Ames was married to a pornography producer and director, Kevin Moore.
