Exclusive Interview: Felicia Fox
I know you’ve recently moved near Los Angeles…Do you like it better there?
I love it out here. I traveled back and forth for two and a half years and it got to be a little much. I felt like I was missing out on a lot of opportunities because I always needed a seven day advance. I came out here so I could be in the middle of everything and be available to shoot whenever people need me.
I guess it greatly improved your availability.
Yeah, it’s worked out pretty well. I’m still featuring. Everything’s great. People are able to call me in a minute’s notice if they need me. It’s a lot, lot better.
Your further away from your family now…
That’s the only thing that sucks. I’m kind of a country girl. The hardest part was moving away from my family. I go back there quite often and I’ll see everybody for the holidays.
I’m glad we finally got this interview worked out. The email you sent a few minutes ago was hilarious…So do you really have your Hello Kitty vibrator ready and waiting?
It’s awesome! Purrrfect! I love it! I’ll have to bring one down and show it to you or get you one or something!
I would have never thought there would be a Hello Kitty vibrator!
I know! Hello Kitty is for kids. This thing is so perverted! It’s pink with a little kitty on top. I guess they only sell them over in Japan. I’ve got one that I keep and one that I use!
It’s obvious to me after visting your website and reading interviews that you’re a big fan of music. Who are your favorite bands?
Tool, Korn, or Nine Inch Nails. Those are definitely my three favorite bands.
You’ve got a thing for Maynard, right?
Noooo! They’re all hot! What can I say?
Have you ever got to go backstage and hang out with any bands?
Yeah, that ended up making me a bigger fan of them, actually. I did a meet and greet with A Perfect Circle. That’s how I ended up meeting some of the guys from Tool and A Perfect Circle. I danced on stage with Kid Rock. I met him at a nightclub with Jonathan Davis from Korn. I got to dance on stage with Vince Neil. I was fans of their music prior to meeting them but now I’m a bigger fan after meeting them. They were cool and very respectful.
What kind of music do you feature dance to?
I dance to very heavy stuff at my shows. My shows are total rock. I dance to Static-X, Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, Iron Maiden, A Perfect Circle, Judas Priest…just heavy, off-the-wall stuff. It’s strange because I’ll throw in a little Cher every once in a while! I keep it high energy with some crowd participation.
Tell me about your first time feature dancing?
My first time? Oh god, I was scared to death! That was the first time I’d ever gone nude. I had danced since I was 18 but I started out at bikini clubs. Maybe a little bit topless but always with paisties. I got up there in my outfit and my song was “Rawhide.” My costumes were really bad. I wasn’t sure what I was doing. I came from the magazine/pageant side of things first and was used to seeing girls put on the big huge shows. They had elaborate everything. I found that that really wasn’t my niche. My niche is more balls-to-the-wall music and I let my own personality come out. It’s wild and crazy! No more “Rawhide” in my shows!
How long after your feature dancing was it before you started doing adult films?
A little over two years. The magazines gradually started getting a little more hardcore and I had featured nonstop for a couple of years. I went and saw Jenna Jameson perform. Granted, she’s Jenna, but I saw the response she got and I saw her show. It took my breath away and I was like, “I want to do adult films.” I wanted a larger fan base. My fans were asking me to do adult films. At first I was worried about what people said and they I was like, “Fuck it. I don’t care what people think. What’s a little sex? Who cares?” I took a year off the feature circuit and shot first with Mike South. Then I came out here and I’ve been shooting ever since. It’s been a great adventure. I love doing films.
How long have you been doing movies?
About two and a half years.
How has your perception of the industry changed in those two and a half years?
I love the adult industry. I’m hard-headed and don’t put up with a lot of shit. I’ve really had no negative experiences in this business. I do quality work. I’ve done a few non-condom scenes but it’s usually with people I have a chemistry with. I’ve done a few features. I like acting, even though I’m not the best actor in the world! I’m not going to win an Oscar or anything, but I can do dialogue pretty well. I like playing characters. It’s just fun…I like the sex. I like the guys and the girls. There’s nothing like getting paid to have sex with beautiful people!
Any favorites you like to work with?
Yeah, Shayne Collins, Eric Masterson, Dale Dabone, Dillion Day, Randy Spears. There are people I’d love to work with like Marc Davis, of course Jenna. I like working with Bridgit Kerkove and April. I need to do more chicks, though! I like guys but they shorthand you on the girls. I need some girlies, too!
Well, what do you look for in a man?
Mainly just honesty, good hygiene, I’m a big ‘eye and teeth’ person. That’s pretty much it. As long as a guy treats a girl the way they want to be treated and they’re courteous and genuine. I don’t like real manly men. I don’t like big guys or the ‘hunting and fishing’ guys. I like to fish but they always want to go out with the guys. Take me fishin’! Take the girl along! I like guys that are very in-tune with women, pretty eyes, and a nice ass!
So you start out all emotional and end up with “a nice ass.”
Yeah! That never hurts!
If you could only have three CDs to listen to for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Wow. That’s a hard one. Tool’s “Aenima.” Prince’s “Greatest Hits.” There are so many I don’t know! Korn’s “Untouchables.” “The Downward Spiral”…there’s so many! I love Metallica before they changed. I like “Battery” and “Master Of Puppets.”
I like to know so I’ll never do it…What pisses you off?
Rude people. It seems like now, since I travel so much for a living, so many people are rude. They’ll bump into you and won’t say, “Excuse me, I’m sorry.” People are really rude nowadays.
I rarely see people hold doors open for each other anymore.
They really don’t. I still try to do that if I see people with bags in their hands. Even if they’re not carrying anything I’ll do it just to be courteous. I’ll smile and say ‘hello’ but people are just so negative.
What’s in your pockets right now?
Actually nothing because I’m naked! I’m running around naked with my slippers on. Isn’t that wonderful?
THAT is a perfectly acceptable answer!
I told you I never keep my clothes on!
What was your first job growing up?
Babysitting. Then I started working in clothing stores like Rave and Merry-Go-Round through high school. Then I started working with handicapped kids and older people. I worked on a farm because I was raised on a farm. I worked a lot with horses – cleaning stalls, a country girl kinda thing.
What was the first adult film you were in?
Mike South’s Confederate Cuties #4.
Mike’s a pretty cool guy.
Actually, he’s one of my dearest friends. He was one of the first people that I met and that I shot with. I looking into the business for about six months before I shot. I wanted to see what direction I wanted to go and really check into it. I knew there were some scumbags in the industry and I wanted to make sure I didn’t end up shooting with those kind of people. I wanted to do more prettier porn. One of my friends from Dayton said, “Have you ever met Mike South?” I ended up shooting with him. A lot of my friends from Ohio that wanted to break into the industry, I’ve sent them his way. Shooting with Mike made me want to come out to L.A. and shoot more. I definitely give props to him. He treats girls very well.
What was your first concert?
KISS! I was 10…the Animalize tour. It was great! My parents took me. My second concert was the Beastie Boys. I remember this big dick came out from behind the stage and my mom was like, “Oh my god! My little 10 year old daughter is seeing this big inflatable penis!” I’ve been ruined ever since.
