Reagan Foxx: I Know What I’m Doing

by Rich Moreland, November 2018

The following conversation with Reagan Foxx was part of my day on the set with Dan O’Connell of Girlfriends Films. For the storyline of his shoot, Dan paired performers in an “older woman/young girl” formula.  As the mature woman in her scene, Reagan was teamed with nineteen-year-old Vanna Bardot.

Dan’s scenes are known for a loving softer touch. Likewise, the set is refreshing in its beauty and tranquility.

Talking with MILF performers is special because they are rare. For a girl to stay in porn well into her thirties and forties is unusual. However, Reagan Foxx challenges that norm. Because she is relatively new to porn, this forty-something brings a fresh and insightful perspective to the business.

Know What I’m Doing

When we settle into our interview, I suggest that maturity makes for a good porn performer. In other words, is there an advantage in being an older woman?

Reagan takes an unexpected approach to the question. Rather than talking strictly sexual desire, she ventures into what a performer values from her work. In her case, it’s a set of priorities.

“I’m not spending my money on frivolous things. I know exactly what I’m doing. I know where my money going. Maybe that’s a difference with the younger people, I don’t know.

“I want to have some friends and go out to dinner. But I don’t hang out every weekend with everyone. So, my goals, I think, are a little bit different. When I get on set, I know exactly what I want to do, and I want to leave [when I’m finished].”

It’s a profession?

“Correct,” Reagan responds. “It’s a job. That’s all it is.”

A Little Background

Reagan Foxx has a path to success that is rooted in her background.

Born in Illinois, she is an only child who spent her adolescence in Kentucky. Reagan attended Milligan College in Tennessee, a Christian school. The focus of disciplined responsibility and going for what you want was established early in her life.

What is more striking is this: Reagan didn’t get involved in adult film until recently. Doing her first camming out of her Arizona home in 2011, she shot her first porn scene in 2016 for Forbidden Fruit Films.

On the other hand, this lovely brunette has a swinger reputation that is a bit overblown, apparently.

“My friends are all swingers, but I am the poser of the group,” she chuckles.

Reagan admits she hangs around the fringes of the lifestyle but, she says, “It was honestly never my thing. I was once a part of it. And now just my friends are.”

My Free Cams

What is Reagan’s take on the question “Is the cammer the new porn performer?”

“That’s what I’m hearing,” she replies. When it comes to their websites, performers are gravitating “more to content trade and putting it out and making your own money,” she believes.  “So, it does seem like that,” Reagan affirms, and references My Free Cams as integral to the success of many adult stars.

Though her career is just getting off the ground, Reagan is no stranger to the AVN trade show. In the past, she’s attended mainly for the parties connected to the swinging lifestyle sometimes associated with porn.

“I’ve actually been to AVN probably ten, twelve years, but recently I went in as a cam girl. The last two years I’ve gone for the porn sites, so I’ve seen a big change regarding My Free Cams. They are a huge sponsor now.”

In Reagan’s opinion, that’s important because “when they give out the awards for best porn people, they’re also integrating in best cam star so you definitely are seeing the cam world kind of coming in [to prominence].”

Fan Base

Since Reagan has transitioned from camming to porn, what does she think about moving in the opposite direction from porn to camming?

“That’s a good question. My fan base—I have some super fans—have come from the cam world. If I hadn’t gotten into porn, they would have stayed with me [as a cammer]. The girls that are doing porn and go into camming, they bring that fan base, too.

“I do feel that now when I occasionally do cam, I get more people coming into my room.”

And, that room is vital because of its intimacy.

“I enjoy camming because to me it lets the fan base see who I am. Personality is huge. When they see your personality, they gravitate towards you.”

There’s  an advantage when porn girls start camming, Reagan points out. It lets “the guys see them every day. They build that relationship. Sometimes they fall for the girl. They want to truly know what’s happening in that girl’s life. The camming provides that. It has the more personal touch.”

From Room to Room

Before she made the leap into camming, Reagan needed to learn some things.

“I started looking around before I actually cammed. I would go from room to room and I would just see girls on their phone. [Some] wouldn’t talk [to the fans]. I wasn’t that girl. As soon as I came on that first day, I was talking, sharing stories, whatever, drinking, having fun. That’s the way to go.”

As camming has matured, the girls have learned their trade.

“Now you can see the girls when they cam, they are much more personal,” Reagan says.

I point out that DVDs include BTS (Behind the Scenes) segments so that porn girls can offer an inside look into the business for their fans, but it comes without real interaction.

“Right. They [the fans] don’t see that [personal] side [of the girls]. But now that things are changing, you [can] do Snapchat every day.

“They do get to see a part of your life. But you have to continue to keep drawing them in.”

Reagan takes a moment to remark about how camming is hard work, especially if you are a parent.

“If you have kids,” she begins, “you’re constantly taking down your camera and pulling your toys out, then hiding your toys [while trying to] figure out what you’re going to do.

“There’s a lot of times where I’d be so stressed out because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. What’s my goal? When am I going to take off my clothes? How much money do I need so I can do this show? You’re constantly thinking about it.”

Above all, however, bringing good cheer to your fans regardless of your circumstances is vital.

“[When] you get online, you’ve got to have your A game. I’ve been online so many times where I was upset or depressed. That’s a disaster waiting to happen.”

She emphasizes that if you can’t make it happen that day, then stay offline.

Empowerment

Is cam work empowering?

“I never thought about camming being empowerment,” Reagan comments. “But when I danced twenty-five, thirty years ago, I thought that was empowering.”

After a pause, she agrees camming might be.

“I’ve never thought of it that way. Why not? Why wouldn’t it be?”

Then Reagan mentions a nagging doubt she faces when she’s online.

“My problem is that I’m too sympathetic. Therefore, when the guys come to me with all their problems, I kind of burden myself with [them]. So, it wasn’t empowering to me. I never took it that way.”

What’s Next for Porn?

In closing our talk, I ask Reagan where she believes the porn industry is headed. Shoots are getting pretty hard-edged, what can be next?

For this popular MILF, it’s enough to handle what’s already here.

“Everyone wants me to do anal and I’m looking at what’s being put out there. That’s just not me. I don’t want to bend over and spread and push and have it look like a party. There are girls that want to do that. Push the envelope.”

However, it does increase their popularity with fans, she admits.

Understandable, but where does the industry go from here?

“That’s a great question that goes right back to camming, that personal touch these men and women are seeking,” Reagan says. “I have noticed more porn girls are now camming and now certain sites will have their own porn star section.”

Perhaps rather than saying the cam girl is taking over porn, Reagan indicates it may be that the porn girl is taking over camming.

Finally, considering all the competition in porn, what does Reagan think makes her unique?

“I don’t know. Maybe because I am older. Maybe you can converse with me a little bit easier. Maybe because I have a lot of knowledge and I’m a ton of fun,” she beams.

Her fans can definitely get on board with that!

Wrapping up the day.

AEE 2017: Cindy Starfall

by Rich Moreland, February 2017

This is the first post in a series of interviews with the clients of Star Factory recorded at the Adult Industry Expo in Las Vegas.

Cindy Starfall is an atypical porn star.

Born in Saigon long after the end of the Vietnam War, Cindy was raised by a nanny. At fifteen, she emigrated to the States and finished her education at an all-girl Catholic school.

Her strict upbringing nurtured the desire for everything taboo. Entering porn in 2011 as a cam girl, Cindy shot her first hardcore scene in March 2012.

This petite honey loves everything from IR to gangbangs, has an online store, and feature dances, all pretty standard for a porn girl. So what part of her is not typical?

Cindy is a swinger and loves to talk about it.

A Strange Topic

How did she get into swinging?

“It was way before porn,” Cindy begins. In college, she was doing web cam shows and a friend approached her about swinging.

“He was introducing me to the lifestyle,” she says. He asked Cindy about watching others have sex, especially in “wife swapping” situations.2017-01-19-04-59-29

Uncertain at first, her answer was no “because it was a very strange topic for me,” she remembers.

“But I went to a swinger club and it was awesome. People were so nice and I like the environment when it’s just purely sex with nothing involved.”

Cindy is still in the scene today and has expanded her swinger friendships.

Just Sex

Do people in the swinger clubs ever make her uncomfortable?

“Sometimes,” Cindy replies and mentions online swinger sites where her profile can be accessed by people in the community.

“They like to stalk me, but in a swinger club there is security everywhere to prevent that from happening.”

2017-01-19-04-59-37Cindy sets her parameters to prevent emotional overreach.

“I tell every couple that I play with that this is just sex, no relationships. In the swing community it is very important that you set that rule because of all the drama that is going on.”

What’s more, there are practicalities everyone observes.

“You tend to show up as couples. You sign up for memberships on a site and you get invited privately so it’s not open for the public. You don’t know where it [the club] is exactly and yes, couples get in for free.”

Singles are not excluded, however.

“Single guy is no problem. Single girls, we call them unicorns. I was a unicorn.”

The atmosphere is congenial.

“It’s definitely a club. People are not afraid to sit down and say, ‘Hi this is my wife, this is my husband,'” Cindy says. If couples like each other, “you can take it to another level. You can go upstairs [to the] playroom.”

2017-01-19-05-00-35Couples may already be there having sex, Cindy explains, but it’s not necessary to get involved with them.

“You can just play with whoever you come with.”

On other occasions, she has a different agenda.

“Sometimes I don’t play at the club. The club is where I meet people. If I like them then I go forward to setting up a date, I call it a date, but it’s not.”

In other words, not like we think of dating, Cindy clarifies.

“It’s just sex. I don’t go to dinner, to a movie. I don’t do that,” she insists, because Cindy wants the couples she plays with to stay together.

Limits

What about sexual limits like those on a porn set?

Limits can be set, Cindy says. Every couple is different. Some may not like kissing, others may want their spouses in separate rooms or insist they be in the same room, and some people have rules about no pictures.

Her personal rule?

“I’ll only do it with your wife there. I don’t want to break up that marriage.’

In fact, Cindy prefers a threesome where possible.

The Turn On of Being Watched

Has swinging had a positive effect on her porn performances?

“Yes. Being a swinger and moving into porn [was] not a scary thing for me,” Cindy says.

“It’s actually improved my porn performances because when I started swinging I realized I like the turn-on of being watched. I love being in front of people.”

So, does Cindy get nervous on porn set?

No, she says. When there’s group sex in the clubs with people watching and photos being snapped (Cindy has no objections to cameras being present), it’s “essentially is the same thing” as porn except with adult film she becomes an actress.

“People watch me through the camera and I feel very comfortable doing what I’m doing on camera.”

“I was not a confident girl until I started the swinger lifestyle. I was very shy. You read my profile. I grew up in a strict household,”  she says.

Cindy’ s parents never encouraged her to be accepting of her sexual self, she adds.

But things are different today.

“I’m more comfortable with my body now. I’m a way more confident girl than I was, let’s say, years before porn.”

Porn is Very Safe

For the most part, an adult film set promotes a protective environment. Does swinging do the same?

“Yes, [but] you have to take care of yourself, to watch out for yourself,” just like in porn, Cindy says.

“Porn is very safe on set,” she asserts, nothing like the “misconceptions” people have about partying and drugs.

“It’s very business-like. You come in, do your work, and you get paid. Everybody is very professional. Everybody always looks out for your interests. But the one who cares most about your interests is yourself. It’s common sense, you got to take care of yourself first.”

Cindy offers what is most important about porn.

“You have to be very comfortable with your own body. You can’t be insecure, you have to know how your body works.”

This leads Cindy Starfall to reveal a personal secret as we close out our talk.

“I’m a sexual person, but I always held it in. I never say it out loud and I was never okay with my body. I always compared myself with other girls, but now I know who I am and I own it. When I see gorgeous girls, I compliment them versus trying to compare myself to them.”

This leads to her final thought.

“Before I got in the business, I make a promise to myself that I’m not going to change who I am because of the industry. I’m still the same person. My swinger friends who have been with me before porn see that.  I’m still the same girl. Yes, I am way busier now but I’m still the same, so it doesn’t change me.”

Now that’s healthy indeed!
