Raven Alexis' nine-to-five is about having sex, in front of people, on camera.

The brown-eyed, pigtailed 22-year-old, who describes herself as a "reality porn star", just signed on with porn powerhouse Digital Playground and her first movie is set for a Dec. 29 release.

But that's her public face. Her secret life is one of guilty, geeky pleasures: LAN parties, Star Trek, World of Warcraft and building and modding her own PCs.

"I started playing video games when I was 13 or 14, when Age of Empires came out, and I've been playing ever since," Alexis told Kotaku in a recent interview.

Alexis refers to her gaming habits as her "alter life", an interesting choice of words for someone in her business.

"I've been playing World of Warcraft since it came out and have played every expansion since," she said. "I play Tiger Woods and other games. I love it, it's my alter life."

Unlike some other adult actors and actresses who form industry guilds or use their real names in game, Alexis prefers to play anonymously.

"My alternate live is very nerdy," she said. "I love playing people online and them not knowing who I am. It is really relaxing for me, kind of an escape, you know?

"I kind of have tried to maintain my anonymity. It's the one place I can play and not have people talk to me about what I do. For me, it's not about talking to people, it's about bashing people."

Alexis says she has a lot of characters in World of Warcraft, her favorite game, including a level 72 Night Elf Druid, a level 44 Tauren Hunter and a level 64 Blood Elf Mage.

"I usually try to play female characters," she said. "I keep a couple of guy characters too. I have several different accounts, so they have different names."

Alexis' self-professed love of gaming goes far beyond your typical mainstream gamer. Her other hobby is building and modding computers.

"I have a couple of different computers," she said. "I have a PC I built out for gaming, a Mac Pro for editing and site building and I have a server back up I host my stuff off of. I also have a Toshiba laptop."

"I'm pretty spoiled."

Alexis sounds proudest of her main computer, one she built herself and installed in a homemade transparent, baby-blue plexiglass case.

"I have water-cooling in there, I picked up the new i7975 extreme edition CPU," she said. "I have it set up as a dual boot with XP 32-bit and Vista 64.

"I don't have Windows 7 yet, but I'm exciting about picking it up. I'm going to try out the 32 and 64 to see which makes more sense."

She says she didn't get into PC modding and building until she went to college.

"I got hooked up with a bunch of kids that got into LAN tournaments," she said. "I wanted to compete and be a bad ass with a cool machine.

"I really just enjoy it, it's so different than anything else I do. It keeps me fresh and going."

Alexis says she's never had the chance to combine her career with her love of gaming culture, something like World of Whorecraft, but she would jump at the opportunity.

"If Digital Playgrounds decides to do something like that, role-playing or fantasy, I'd would love to do it," she said. "I'm a big Star Trek fan too."

I asked Alexis if she gets annoyed that people are surprised that an attractive adult actress like herself would play video games.

"It's not annoying, it's a little surprising," she said. "I've met a lot of cool women that play video games through LAN tournies. What surprises people is that I'm hot and a porn star and a player, but that has nothing to do with it, gaming is so popular now."

"My gaming should be about what I do, not who I am."
