The Adult Entertainment Expo is a rush for everyone. When I stopped by Foxxx Modeling for a quick visit, I notice a striking blonde named Emma Hix. She’s tall and slim with delicate features and something I’ve rarely seen on a porn girl: a wedding ring.
Intrigued, I asked her if she could give me a few minutes of her time.
I returned the next day and we talked briefly amongst the fans ready to take my place when Emma’s attention was free.
Emma is nineteen, from LA, and married with a “very supportive” family behind her.
“I got into porn because I love expressing my sexuality,” she says.
Her first scene was in April of last year. So far, she’s stayed on the vanilla side. “I’ve done four anal scenes, and soon I hope to do my first IR scene.”
Emma wants to turn her career up a notch and shoot for Kink.com.
“I do like rough sex,” she says, but when it comes to bondage, Emma is more into being tied up as an expression of art.
“I don’t think of the rough side so much,” she admits. “With them that’s going to happen, so I have to be prepared.”
For a youngster in this business, Emma has a grasp on reality.
“You have to know what you are comfortable with and what you’re not comfortable with. It’ll be fine, but it’s a little nerve-wracking.”
Since this sweetie hasn’t done any features, I ask about her acting experience and found out she took some drama classes in high school.
“I was better at acting back then because I felt more open with myself. But now that I’m in the adult industry I feel more pressure to be good at acting,” Emma says.
“My acting skills have gone down. I’m not going to lie. I’m going to take a course because I do want to eventually go into mainstream. It’s really hard to do that after porn, but that’s the goal.”
What is the most important piece of advice she would give new girls?
“Be yourself and don’t change for anyone because a lot of girls in this industry will change for other people to look good. I try to be myself, I try to be friendly to people.”
It’s worked for her, Emma says. People who knew her before porn tell her she hasn’t changed.
Finally, Emma has a warning for every eager starlet.
“Watch out for people who will take advantage of you. If you’re coming into the industry as a new girl, you will get taken advantage of.”
It happened to her and Emma is very open about it. Her story reflects what I’ve heard from other girls.
“My very first scene, the guy is only supposed to cum one time. That’s like the rule. He came four times, he came inside of me, he did off-camera two times and I thought that was the norm, it was fine.”
In fact, she took the behind the scenes episode as a compliment.
“I felt good, ‘Oh he really likes me,’” she remembers.
But then reality kicked in.
“When I went back home to my agent, he said, ‘That is totally wrong.’”
Emma explains that the industry has good guys and ones that aren’t and the bad dudes will take advantage of an unaware girl.
“As much as you love sex, doing it off camera is different. Some directors try to get you to have sex with them just to get work. When I pick that up I don’t want to work for them. I’ll just be friendly. ‘No, I don’t want to do that.’”
“You got to watch out,” Emma declares.
Emma Hix’s fans were a little restless by now, so we closed things out. Check this girl out if you don’t her at Foxxx Modeling. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
