JJ: Hi Alexis. It's a pleasure to have you with us at Inside the Porn. Certainly perked out day up here in the office.
So tell me how did you get into the industry?
Alexis: My husband Ty and I are swingers. And as swingers often do, we found ourselves taping our sexual escapades. I was sick of Corporate America and was looking for something fun and exciting. A few of my girlfriends who were in the industry encouraged me to start my own site, so I took that box full of videos and put myself online. My site http://www.AlexisGolden.com officially launched in July 2007.
JJ: Well having known a few people who got into the industry after swinging first I'd recommend the lifestyle to everyone as who knows when you'll be fucking the next big pornstar
What's the best thing about the industry?
Alexis: I’ve meet some amazing people in the industry. It is so nice to be able to be yourself and not worry about people judging you for your nontraditional views on sex. I truly can bring out my inner freak and be celebrated for it.
JJ: Having seen your work I can say I love that inner freak haha. Certainly is something that should be on screen.
What's the worst thing about the industry?
Alexis: Perhaps the most frustrating for any business person attempting to function in the adult industry is the lack of planning and follow through. Seriously, I’ve never seen anything like it. I come from a world where your schedule is planned out by the hour, months in advance. Let’s face it - time is money. In the adult industry winging it seems to be the norm. So much time is wasted.
That’s why I prefer to run the show. The majority of what I do in porn is all for me … I shoot my own content, manage my own site, produce my own movies and do all my own marketing. My technical and business background makes for a great combination for a woman in porn. My DVDs have been ranked right alongside those from big production companies.
JJ: I think we have a lot of people who come into the industry thinking its easy but it's not. It takes a lot of planning and hard work to be really successful and build a reputation.
What's the funniest thing to happen to you whilst working?
Alexis: The first time I ever took on the role of a submissive (I’m very dominate) I was strung up by all four limbs from a 30 foot ceiling. In the middle of getting fucked like mad I got Charlie Horses in both my calves and shouted “stop, stop”. The poor dude fucking me thought I was having some sort of mental breakdown LOL. After lowering me down and massaging out the cramps we all had a good laugh and started back up. It was
JJ: That must have freaked him out but at least you managed to finish out the scene.
What are you doing now work wise?
Alexis: I am getting ready to launch a whole new look and feel to my site – better design and navigation, higher quality images and video, mobile friendly and tons of new exclusive content. I will be part of the VNA Live network where I will be offering weekly webcam shows to my members and providing them to access to all the VNA Live cam shows. Over 200 a month.
I am making my first trip to the UK to shoot and I couldn’t be more excited about reaching a new audience of perverts. While in London I will be hooking up with fellow MILF star Emma Starr to take part in my first European gang bang. Guys …. get in line!
JJ: Now that's something I should definitely be attending. I'd be crazy to pass that by lol.
And where can people find you online?
Alexis: This is my website www.AlexisGolden.com and you can also find me at Twitter.com/AlexisGoldenXXX and Instagram.com/AlexisGoldenXXX
JJ: Well your site is certainly well worth signing up to. You're content is mind blowing.
What's the best thing about sex?
Alexis: I love that it can be different every time. Nasty wet and sloppy, aggressive throw me around choke me out, soft caressing and touching, guys, girls or the more the merrier. Hours on end or just a quickie. It’s what you make it really.
JJ: So what really turns you on?
Alexis: Intelligence and humor. All a girl really wants is a funny dude with a big loyal dick.
JJ: Well I'm glad to hear that. Maybe all hope isn't lost for me just yet haha.
What's your favourite holiday destination?
Alexis: I love to travel so for me a new location and a new experience every time is what I look for when I plan to take time off. I love the beach, the mountains, the city. There is so much out there it would be wasted if you kept going back to the same place.
JJ: That's a very good point. Variety is the spice of life after all.
Tell me one thing about yourself I wouldn't know just by looking at you?
Alexis: I’m a super nerd. In another life I use to teach computer programming. Total gadget girl and techie.
JJ: Sexy and a nerd. I'm envious of your husband even more now.
What's your biggest achievement in life or work?
Alexis: I was very successful in the business world. So much so I was able to get out and do adult for the fun of it.
JJ: That's a fantastic achievement. Being able to do something you love is always an achievement in itself.
What's been the most challenging thing you've had to overcome?
Alexis: Coming from an overly strict, religious background. Everyone knows about the religious guilt thing and how it’s so hard to overcome.
JJ: Religious guilt is always a struggle for a lot of people but I think being able to overcome that shows a lot of character
What's the best thing a fan has ever done for you?
Alexis: I have really awesome fans. Aside from the many gifts I have received from my Amazon wish list – for which I’m very thankful – I have fans that help with technical questions. These little gems can save me hours of research and hair pulling. It can be difficult at times when you’re working at home by yourself with no IT department.
JJ: I find that fans of people in the adult industry are always extremely helpful.
What's one bit of advice you'd give to someone getting into the industry?
Alexis: Once you take your clothes off on camera you can’t take it back. Your photos and videos will be all over the internet and social media. Make sure you’re ready for that kind of commitment.
JJ: I think you need be aware of that if you're coming into the industry. Your work can last forever on the Internet.
What do you think you'll do once you leave the industry?
Alexis: I think I'll lay on the beach and drink margaritas.
JJ: Now who wouldn't want to spend their retirement doing that. It sounds perfect.
Finally, what's been the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Alexis: Honestly none. I don’t know if it’s that there are none or that I just don’t pay attention. I live my life by surrounding myself with positive energy.
JJ: Well that's something I think keeps people grounded. You're a very positive person yourself and I've never heard anything bad about you.
Thank you so much for being part of the Inside the Porn. I'm certainly looking forward to more of your work this year. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule.
