Interview with Felicia Fox
Friday, April 11, 2003
I got home from the DP Tonight show 4/8/03 and got an IM from Mike
South, who told me to call his porn star friend Fifi. I did and we started
chatting while I continued my IM with Mike. Ten minutes into my talk
with Fifi, I asked her for her porn name. She said "Felicia Fox."
I felt like an idiot because I've known Felicia for several months.

South1226: You missed all the excitement!
South1226: Hey I think me n Debbie are coming to erotica LA.

South1226: You called some girl just cuz I told ya to and had
no idea who she was?
South1226: Yer OK man
South1226: DUC... dude yer hopeless man
South1226: To be such an instigator of s--- you are the most
innocent guy on the planet!
Ten minutes into my conversation with Felicia, I realize I haven't
pressed record on my machine. So let us join my conversation in progress.
Felicia: "I'd been featuring [as a stripper] for two years.
I went to see Jenna Jameson perform at the club Diamonds. I saw the
responses she got and the crowd she got, the fans... I went to [hubby]
Tim and said that I wanted to do adult films. That was in May of 2000."
Luke: "Is Tim Case in the room with you?"
Felicia: "He just walked in."
Luke: "Is he manipulating you?"
Felicia: "No, never."
Luke: "Have you come to LA before?"
Felicia: "Yeah, I've been coming for two-and-a-half years.
I shot for Vivid, Wicked, New Sensations, Sin City, Jill Kelly, Playboy.
I'd considered moving out prior to this but I was featuring so much,
we never did. I realized I was missing out on some good opportunities,
mainly because I couldn't catch an airflight in time. So Tim and I moved
out here in January 2003. We considered keeping our place in Ohio but
it's so much money... We want to save money."
Luke: "Porn stars don't save their money. They blow it on drugs
Felicia: "I don't do drugs."
Luke: "Not even before a scene?"
Felicia: "Never. I treat it like a business. I put everything
I have into it - my heart, mind and soul. I started dancing at 18. It's
paid for me to go to school."
Luke: "Why would you go to college?"
Felicia: "I was going to go for my nursing license before
I found other ways of making money. I went to cosmetology school. I
took care of Alzheimer's patients and handicapped kids. Most of my family
is in the medical field. I was going to go for that but I just like
this industry. I'm an exhibitionist. I like sex. My Mom couldn't keep
my clothes on when I was a kid. I was all getting naked and going into
the creek and tubing down the rivers, riding horses naked.
"I bloomed early. I had this size breasts at the age of twelve. You
get stereotyped as easy. People were saying that when I hadn't even
had sex yet. I didn't lose my virginity until I was in high school.
I grew up with mainly guy friends."
Luke: "How many movies have you done?"
Felicia: "About 70."
Luke: "And what's your stage name?"
Felicia surprised: "My stage name? Felicia Fox."
DUC aghast: "Oh wait... I'm sorry."
Felicia: "Did you call the wrong person?"
Luke: "No. Mike was telling me about Fifi."
Felicia: "That's my nickname."
Luke: "I'm so brain dead."
Luke: "Mike said I had to call Fifi. I thought, that's interesting.
She's managed by Felicia Fox's husband."
Felicia: "So you thought Tim was managing a girl named
Felicia: "You're funny."
Luke: "What's your ethnic heritage?"
Felicia: "Cherokee Indian and Irish."
Luke: "What do you love and what do you hate about the industry?"
Felicia: "There's nothing I hate. It's all been positive.
The worst thing is that there's not enough time in the day to do everything.
Traveling wears you down."
Luke: "How does your family feel about your new career?"
Felicia: "They're ok with it. Any parent would rather
have their daughters do something else. But I've got a good head on
my shoulders. I save my money."
Luke: "What are your ambitions?"
Felicia: "I want to keep featuring and keep upping my
rates and buy my house. I might want to open up a little adult bookstore
one day. I love doing camera work. I love taking stills. When my looks
fade, I'd like to be on the other side of the camera."
Luke: "What type of movies do you like to make?"
Felicia: "When I broke in, I went the vanilla route. The
longer I've been in the business, I'm doing edgier stuff. I'm getting
more comfortable with myself. I'm finding I like things a little rougher.
Porno has brought some things out in me that I didn't know I had.
"Porno has helped me grow, dealing with the cash flow that you make
in this industry... It made me use my head to invest my money."
Luke: "So many people get jaded in this business?"
Felicia: "The worst thing you see is burnout. You see
people burn out quick. When I broke in, I wanted to shoot quality over
quantity. I didn't want to shoot too much. I didn't want to get overexposed.
I want longevity in the business. You need more positive people in this
Luke: "What is it about this business that makes so many people
Felicia: "The dickhead directors that take advantage of
people. You get girls out there that are young and get taken advantage
of. Like that girl who had to f--- a bum on the street. For girls that
use their head, it can be a good business. It's just sex. It's not brain
Luke: "How has being in this industry affected your soul?"
Felicia: "My soul is completely healthy and loves to f---."
Fox Responds To A Fan About The Son of G-d
Tim Case, Felicia's dutiful husband, writes: "Felicia
Fox received an email from a born-again Christian who felt she was doomed
to a life of eternal damnation, if she doesn't give up her life as a porn
star and accept Jesus Christ as her personal saviour. He explained to
her that he wears a "purity ring", which shows that he is a virgin and
will never give himself to another until he and she are cleaved in the
holy bonds of matrimony."
Felicia writes her fan Anderson:
Sweetie: I think jesus christ had some great and progressive ideas,
considering the time and place where he was born and lived out his unfortunately
short life. Its a shame that he was killed for his radical beliefs,
but then, times haven't really changed all that much in that respect,
I think jesus was the son of god. I think you are also the son of god.
I think that moses, john the baptist, the pope, buddha, marilyn manson,
george carlin, george bush and osama bin laden are the sons of god.
Just as I am the daughter of the god or the goddess or gaia or whomever
might be in charge out there. I do not, however, believe in that frightened-of-my-own-mortality-fueled
fantasy of an afterlife, in any form.
I think you, and your fellow christian cultists, are laughably off
base and missing the point of your existence entirely. I think you all
take the precious "holy scriptures" to be literal truth, when they are
intended as metaphorical fables. I think god, the goddess, or whomever
is in charge, if they really are up there, is thoroughly embarrassed
by your actions and really wishes you would just stop. I think that
you are engaged in a profound waste of your own time by trying to make
converts to your christian cult by seeking out individuals online and
harangueing them with your dogmatic observations. If you don't like
what I do for a living, why seek me out online and take the time to
tell me about it? I don't care what you think, and definitely have more
important ways to spend my own AOL minutes.
I can't imagine living a life so empty that I would waste my days by
seeking out individuals that I know ahead of time I'm going to disagree
with -- white supremacists, man-eating cannibals, born-again christians
-- and then trying to whine at them that their way of life is wrong
according to my own personal standards. Who cares? What gives you the
right? Are you truly that much of a loser? And what could possibly make
such an individual -- you, in other words -- think you are accomplishing
anything more than wasting your time? Or, more importantly, mine?
Please don't bother to contact me again. Consider spending your time
on more worthwhile pursuits, such as helping the homeless, tuning up
your car, or perhaps reading the collected works of Joseph Campbell.
In other words: Take your purity ring, babe, and stick it where the
Son don't shine.
You seem to be quite offended by the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.Which
makes perfect sense, because the reason people such as yourself get
offended is simply because the Word of God brings forth light and exposes
those who choose to live in darkness like yourself. And it exposes your
evil and wicked deeds and sins. And this makes you uncomfortable to
talk about including your lifestyle. The Word of God pierces the heart
of man kind and people don't like to hear the truth. So your response
is very predictable just like everyone else in the world. So don't get
mad about me writting you back because I sat here and read all you wrote
me so I expect the same. My prayers will be with you and your future
husband. And I did not seek you out I just happen to come across your
profile. And I care thats why I took the time to share the truth and
my heart with you. If I didn't care i'd simply say the heck with ya
and not even bother. But I love and God loves you thats why He sent
His Son to die for you and me. John 3:16-17 "For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into
the world to condemn the world, but that the world would be saved through
Him". Don't lie to yourself in thinking the bible does not effect you,
because one day you will face the Almighty true living God and have
to give an account for your life. It's like standing on a beach and
theres a hurricane and a huge wave is headed towards you, and you stand
there and say to yourself I don't believe in that wave or it won't effect
me, because weather you believe in that wave or what it can do to you
or not it? It will not only effect you it will hit you. However the
good news is Jesus took the wrath of God that was reserved for us and
paid the price so we didn't have to. However if you reject the free
gift Christ has to offer then you are headed down a path that will destroy
you for all eternity. Remember everyone spends eternity in one of two
places there is no other choice and thats heaven or hell? Take care
and God bless
Felicia Fox On Miss Nude World Contests
Contests like the "Miss Nude World" are a joke, and they've always
been a joke. Young feature dancers who are new to the feature circuit
rely on pageants and contests such as these to acquire "titles," which
they then use to try and increase their booking rates on the dance circuit...many
then try to market themselves as "porn stars," hoping to draw the bigger
porn chick paychecks, whether or not they've actually done any films
or even have any desire to do XXX.
As a new touring feature entertainer, back in 1999 I quickly figured
out that the majority of those hokey pageants and contests are rigged,
so I decided to do XXX films instead, and I increased my name recognition
value through my film, television and magazine work and steady touring.
Any girl who pays to enter one of these things is in for a rude awakening,
I'm afraid. The only one I might even consider, if I was a newbie, would
be the Nudes-a-Poppin' Festival, held each year in Roselawn Indiana
at the Ponderosa Sun Club.
