Bender Cain here for Explicit list.com once again bringing you another great interview with the Adult industry’s Newest Performer’s Cleo Vixen
Bender So Cleo you are pretty new to the adult entertainment industry so how did you make the decision to enter the business?
Cleo Well for most women in the industry, it’s the money.. but for me I’ve always loved to watch porn and I’m a big fan of Sasha Grey, I’ve always been a big feminist and I strongly believe women should be able to have the same rights as men, I love to have sex and porn is a much safer route to go for someone my age. Rather than having sex with people when I feel like it outside of porn, Because in porn we get tested every two weeks and besides that everything is professional and fun. I’d love to someday get into other forums of acting and show off my songs I’ve written to the world and sing them as well. I just love the entertainment part of porn and acting has always been a huge part of my life since I was a child. So naturally all these things plus getting hair, makeup and wardrobe and of course a large paycheck just totally made me want to get into the porn industry. I’m so glad I made that decision too because I love what I do.
Bender . You are represented by LA direct how has working with them helped you?
LA Direct is great, they are all very respectful and nice to me and my agency itself is so professional. I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else. LA Direct has helped me get into the porn industry in a safe and professional way, working with them as my agency is such a blessing and the other girls in my agency are all so sweet and cool. I’m really happy to have them around.
Bender Now how did you come up with your stage name?
Cleo Well first of all, I like girls- I’m lesbian. I learned that about myself at a very young age. The first girl I ever thought was really hot, was when I was about 12 years old, we were myspace friends. Her name is Cleo. I really started to fall in love with the name Cleo when I learned about Cleopatra though. I think the name Cleo is very sophisticated and cute at the same time and it goes as far back as Cleopatra. So I just really liked it, it fits me. I started brainstorming with my two best friends to come up with a last name and we came up with Vixen because it’s so fitting as well. So Cleo Vixen was born and here I am.
Bender I know you are very new to the industry so can you tell our readers here at explicit list.com what your goals are?
Cleo My goals in this industry are to branch out and try new things, to have fun and meet new people, to further my music and acting as well as myself in pornography and to hopefully do something with Playboy, Xart and Hustler. Last but not least I want to stick to my goals and be smart about how I use my money, I want to save up and only spend my money on things that I need to spend my money on. I want to inspire young women my age to feel sexy in their own skin and to love themselves. I’m really into eating healthy (even though I eat a TON of food, everything I eat is healthy) and doing things I love with my life so all of this has helped me learn to really love the person I am and my body as well. I believe that no matter what your size is, you can feel sexy and love yourself. The most important thing to me though is that I want to stay the free spirited open minded girl that I am.
Bender Do you prefer shooting girl /girl or girl /boy scenes?
Cleo I prefer shooting girl/boy scenes because I don’t get nervous (sometimes I get a little nervous with girls), I can treat the guys like their a friend and joke around and have fun with them. I really love shooting girl/girl too, I love women and it’s so fun being able to shoot with other women.
Bender. For those who are not familiar with your work can you tell us what companies you have work for?
Cleo I have worked for mofos, pornpros, hexed and more. I have some shoots that are coming out really soon and I’m so excited for everyone to see them.
Bender Ok now you have an amazing natural body what would you say your best feature is?
Cleo I would say my best feature is my butt but I also really love my stomach and my nipples.
Bender Tell us some of the performers you have worked with?
Cleo I have worked with Johnny Castle, Ria Rox, Silvia Saige, Levi Cash, Tony Rubino and more.
Bender Ok now Cleo I always hate this next question but it is a big fan question so what would you say your favorite sexual position is?
Cleo My favorite position is front facing cowgirl, I love to be on top and be in control.
Bender Alright this is a another fan question do you have a favorite sex toy?
Cleo I have a little pink rechargeable vibrator that I absolutely love the brand is “nu”. It’s amazing, it’s really powerful and cute.
Bender Okay Cleo so how has being in the adult entertainment industry helped you explore your sexuality?
Cleo It’s definitely still a learning experience, I get to learn new positions all the time and try new things that I’ve never done before. I love it. It’s crazy, fun and sometimes even a little nerve wrecking at the same time. But it’s amazing to be able to explore my sexuality and find new things that turn me on.
Bender So is there anyone special in your life?
Cleo No there isn’t, I’m taking a step back from relationships to enjoy being single to focus on myself and my career.
Bender who is your favorite pornstar?
Cleo My all time favorite pornstars are Sasha Grey and Stoya. But I also really love Mia Khalifa and Tori Black.
Bender if you could work with any performer in the adult entertainment industry who would you want to work with?
Cleo I would absolutely love to work with Stoya or Mia Khalifa.
Bender. Do you enjoy interacting with your fans on social networks like Twitter?
Cleo I love my fans and talking to them is really cool to me because I’ve never had “fans” before, I’m just a normal girl from the South Bay so to me it’s all so new and I still can’t believe I even have fans. I love all of them and I talk to every single one of them as much as I can.
Bender Now my next question is kind of a serious one we here at Explicit list.com have noticed a lot of cyberbullying going on on Twitter another social networks have you had any experience like this and how do you deal with it?
Cleo I’ve actually never really talked about this with very many people in my personal life, only a few people know about this, but I have dealt with cyber bullying. On a really extreme level, I used to live in a small town in Oregon with my mom for a little while (I’d go a few months out of the year and live with her, sometimes longer than that) before I ever got into the porn industry. I did something stupid that my “friends” found out about- everyone seemed to act normal around me and I thought everything was fine. But as soon as I went on my twitter the kids I thought were my “friends” were posting all kinds of really hurtful things about me. I tried to ignore it but I couldn’t so I posted something telling them to stop but this just egged them on even more. More kids joined in that I knew and over twitter, instagram and facebook I could not log in without seeing really mean posts about me. Everyone I knew in that town that was my age, was posting something mean about me on social media. They would send me things and harass me over text, it went on about a week (which felt like forever) and I finally broke down and blocked all of them from everything and deleted my twitter and didn’t log on to any of my other accounts for months. I even blocked their phone numbers from calling/texting me. It really hurt and it was this overwhelming sense of embarrassment and sadness. I felt so betrayed and harassed by the people in that town that I thought were my friends. People can surprise you sometimes, I am so glad I didn’t add fuel to the fire and I acted in as mature of a way as one can act in a situation like that. It’s hard to go through something like that, but I haven’t talked to any of them since and I believe that it made me stronger and love myself even more. I am extremely against talking bad about someone online and I really believe if you don’t have anything nice to say then keep it to yourself. It really is a shame that there are so many other young women and men out there who have to deal with this. It’s wrong, no one should have to deal with cyber bullying, or being bullied or harassed in general. Today, I love myself and I am so proud of the person I am and going through that made me stronger.
Bender I know you have a website Cleovixen.com can you tell us a little bit about your website?
Cleo My website has so many surprises Im working on it will have exclusive photos and videos of me, I’ll also have a lot of special things on it for my fans to see, read and buy. It’s all coming soon but I promise it’ll be worth the wait.
Bender You’re are a California girl right so can you tell us what that means to?
Cleo I have traveled around to a lot of places in my 19 years, haha but California is my favorite and my home. Being a California girl means being able to be who I am wherever I am, California is so diverse and accepting. My favorite place to go in California is Cardiff by the sea where I can go camping, surfing, swim in the ocean and tan on the sand just a few hours away from my home city I grew up in. It’s more than a beach lover can ask for. I love the beach, the restaurants and shopping out here. The weather is pretty great too. I was a junior life guard and always took swim lessons since I was 9 months old until I was 13 years old then I did synchronize swimming, advanced swim and junior life guards. I’ve been surfing, boogie boarding and body surfing since well, since I could walk. In California I can go to the Pride parade/festival one day, the next go beach camping and the next day go to a restaurant or I can visit my family where we can be cozy in the house I grew up in and eat my dads delicious French toast. So I really love it here, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want and it’s just a car drive away.
Bender Okay Cleo what would you say sets you apart from the other performers in the adult entertainment industry?
Cleo What sets me apart from the other performers I think is that I am very natural and sincere. I truly love what I’m doing, I love myself and I really love to have sex and be on camera. I don’t have any piercings or tattoos and I don’t have any work done. I home schooled and went to music school on the side so I was raised and brought up differently than most, my life revolves around experiencing and learning new things through travel, books and music. If I were to describe myself I’d say I’m a free spirit and old soul in one. I see sex as an art, it can make you feel just about any emotion but it will always be beautiful and make you feel something, and there’s just something about sex and art that gets me so excited.
Bender This is kind of a silly question but I am in one of those moods so what would you say your favorite aphrodisiac is?
Cleo Haha that’s a hard one, I’m still discovering what my favorite aphrodisiac is.
Bender What would you say your strongest talent is as a performer your expertise if you will?
Cleo I’m a really good tease and I love to be dominate, I think I’m pretty good at being dominate. I’m also a good kisser.
Bender Okay Cleo one last question before we go how can your fans keep up with you and your career?
Cleo All my fans have to do to keep up with me and my career is to follow my social media (twitter: @cleovixenxxx, instagram: cleovixen and tumblr: psycholilvixen) and to follow up on visiting my website: cleovixen.com and to just interact with me through twitter and I will definitely keep my fans posted whenever something new is up or anything is going on that I think they would be interested in seeing or knowing about.
