Today I'm interviewing Kelli Lox
JJ: Welcome to Inside the Porn. It's a pleasure to have you here.
So, how did you get into the industry?
Kelli: I used to model in college, for the art department. I loved it and i was pretty good at it. I liked the skill and professionalism aspect, you know, like showing up on time, having good poses that I could hold, and having a good attitude etc. but also, I just loved getting paid to be naked in front of people! To casually navigate the mental and social ins and outs of being nude in front of people, it just felt cool ! most people in our culture have too many hangups to be able to do that. anyways, fast forward to about 5 or 6 years ago, I realised that i missed modeling, so I started a modeling profile online. that's where radius dark, later a grooby photographer, discovered me.
JJ: Thats great that you had an appreciation to the nuances of modelling. I'm sure that has served you well.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Kelli: The people. I have met the most awesome, beautiful, and interesting people ever as a result of being in the adult industry, also the attention. If you know me at all, you know I love attention. There's so many brilliant and funny people out there with so much to say and no one gives a lab rats ass. me? i think up a joke about boners and within 10 minutes thousands of people worldwide have read it, that's so cool.
JJ: The attention you get must be a big confidence boost and must make you feel good. I've always shyed away from attention really.
What's the worst thing about the industry?
Kelli: The predatory underbelly. there's no shortage of naive girls who think they're the hottest thing since battery powered vibrators and they get taken for this ride and then get dumped off a year or two later with ZERO to show for it. Meanwhile, someone else is making money off the content that girl was in forever. You see, it costs nothing for major studios to watch a girl fail, set her up with her own membership site? sure. send her around the same 7 sites that always shoot fresh faces? sure. whatever. sure. oh look it's a year later and her membership site failed. boo fucken hoo. you never see her again, she ran back to whatever po dunk state she was from with her tail between her legs and those sites are still to this day making money off her pics and videos, and she has nothing to show for it. THAT is the predatory underbelly, but what can you do about it? You just get used to watching it happen. you can tell a new girl but, chances are, she won't listen. she's too busy spending that $600 dollars she just got for a shoot on some nonsense and bragging about it on twitter.
JJ: Whats the funniest thing that's happened to you whilst working?
Kelli: Oh there's so much hilarious stuff that goes down on set, or at awards shows, i just can't think of anything right now.
JJ: haha I can imagine. I always have found the few sets I've been around have always been full of laughs.
What are you doing at the moment workwise?
Kelli: I have a day job. so that keeps me grounded. with porn I'm traveling a lot, shooting for different sites and returning to studios I've shot with before. I have done some collaborations and have a bunch of things in the works and under development. You can see a lot of my recent work for TS Pussyhunters on Kink.com. I also recently shot with VirtualRealTS in Spain. I starred on a DVD with Stefani Special and Chelsea Poe called Fetish Fvckdolls.
JJ: Where can people find you online?
Kelli: I love twitter because it makes it so easy and fun to interact directly with my fans. @kellilox is my handle.
JJ: Guys and girls make sure you follow this minx.
What's the best thing about sex?
Kelli: It varies. sometimes it's the connection between you and another person or people. Sometimes it's the newness of a certain type of experience for you or someone else. Other times it's an exhibitionist thing, like, if there's people watching, or the risk of getting caught doing something wrong, something bad. that's just hot, other times it's just the raw fucking fuckiness, some sort of urgency, or being helpless, objectified or used. it's so varied, I guess that's why sex is the one pastime that never gets old huh
JJ: That's very true. Sex is never a boring thing if you're happy to push your limits.
What really turns you on?
Kelli: I am constantly amazed by the things that can turn me on. As a porn star, and especially one who must achieve and maintain an erection, you really have to develop your brain to find a way to get turned on in any situation. like, you could be killing puppies all around me and as long as I can picture in my head a really cute girl with a shaved pussy, I can get hard. I feel sorry for the puppies but I have to tune that out and focus on getting a boner. Sometimes i'm not really turned on by my scene partner, you know, so I have to dig deep and find something, anything, even if its a thought of a faraway really really sexy thing i'm gonna get that boner. If you're like, meh i'm just not feeling turned on today YOURE FIRED you get that boner or you're in the wrong line of work. I'm making it sound funny, I know, but seriously it's not a joke. the good studios invest gobs of dough into each scene and if theres no boner, it's all a waste. tricks of the camera and fake cum can only do so much.
JJ: That's very true. Being able to deliver is a big deal. So many people think it would be easy. But it can become stressful.
The important question now, what's your favourite film?
Kelli: The Good the Bad and the Ugly, The Godfather, shit like that.
JJ: Well they are classics. You must be excited for the new Magnificent Seven film that's coming out soon.
Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
Kelli: I love Crete. It's an amazing place to go.
JJ: I've never been to Crete bit it's somewhere I've considered a few times.
Tell me one thing about yourself I wouldn't know just by looking at you?
Kelli: I'm half Mexican-half German.
JJ: That's something I would never have guessed and a combination that doesn't happen too often haha.
What's the best thing a fan has ever done for you?
Kelli: I love it when fans fly me to exotic places. There's this one couple who took me on a trip to Thailand. It was lovely. They were just fans of mine, but to this day I still stay in touch with them. Now I consider them dear friends and I love them. So note to any fans out there who love to travel, I have a passport and can speak several languages. And I never complain, as long as I have plenty of time to lay around and be lazy. Also I love history, so I take a genuine interest in places. I'm always up for a good or unusual adventure. Intergalactic traveling companion for hire.
JJ: I'm sure if any of my readers have any sense they'll be taking you up on that offer very soon.
What's one piece of advice you'd give to someone getting into the industry?
Kelli: Don't do it. There's a huge social cost. People judge. You lose some family. There's a constant wondering who knows and who doesn't know. You never know if someone might try to blackmail you or tell other people that you're a porn star. You could lose a job or some shit. And if it doesn't work out, you'll have this content online haunting you forever. Did that scare you off? If not - if you still want to do it, then for fucks sake be smart about it, get a PR person, or an agent, someone who knows whats what, and go full force. Save/invest your money. And get ready for the most fun you've ever had in your life, because it's fucking rad!!
JJ: Well that's some great advice and something everyone should certainly consider.
What do you think you'll do once you leave the industry?
Kelli: Float up into the sky on a beam of light.
JJ: I can honestly say that's the first time that answer has been given for that question haha.
Finally, what's the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Kelli: I heard that someone said I was from Canada. Random I know.
JJ: Well that's not too bad. It could be worse haha.
Thank you so much for being with me today. It's a pleasure to feature you. I hope you have a great end to the year.
