Roxy Deville is a porn star that knows what she wants and doesn't concern herself with petty bullshit. Although she likes to have her ass beaten, she won't let you fuck it. Despite swearing off anal scenes Roxy Deville has worked in both gonzo porn and in the softer features, exhibiting her versatility. In this interview with XRentDVD's Big D, Roxy reveals the woman she would marry if it were legal, why she wants to fuck a clown and why butt plugs, amputees, jail house tattoos, chicks with dicks, the smell of dirt and Cherry Garcia ice cream are such a big turn-on.
Big D: So Roxy, you admittedly did not watch porn before you got into this industry. How did you come to make the leap into the adult business and start shooting porn for a living?
Roxy Deville: I was a dancer for a long time and I was so pissed. That's because all of the other girls that I was working with who really weren't all that cute were driving Mercedes and getting big fake tits and always walking in with new purses. I was saying, 'you know, I am a nice girl. How come I am not making any fucking money?' The problem was I wouldn't hook. I wasn't fucking my customers. So I said, 'Ah, so that's how it works. I am not fucking any of these sleezeballs'. So I figured if you want to make any real money you've got to take the dick anyways. So you might as well go to a 'safe environment' with corporations and not some skeezy guy from the strip club who will rape you and throw you in the hills. So I decided smut was a better career choice.
Big D: So how has your decision to get into the smut business played out? Are you happy with your decision and plan to stay a while or is this a thing to make some cash and then get the hell out?
Roxy Deville: I am really happy. My stress level has gone down one thousand percent. It's nice. It's nice to have more of a steady income than I did when I was dancing. As far as my career plans for porn? I like the business. I like my job but I am not willing to do the crazy, crazy stuff. I don't do anal. I certainly do not want to do the wacky, wacky stuff that a lot of the girls do. I am going to ride it out as long as I can still get jobs (laughs) and then I will move on.
Big D: You mentioned that you do not do anal. I couldn't help but notice that the tone in your voice reveals you know in this industry if you do not do anal you understand you are limiting yourself. Why do you think that in this industry that girls that choose not to do anal are a bit more limited when it comes to getting jobs?
Roxy Deville: You can still be a pretty enough girl and put out a good enough scene without having to do the whole anal thing. I think it really is kind of ridiculous. There was a thread on Adult DVD Talk about me that was saying, ' There is this girl and she's great and she should be more famous but she doesn't give up the ass so it probably won't happen'. That's kind of ridiculous if you ask me. It's just another orifice. I still take strangers' weenies on film. It should be good enough but I guess it is not. I think that is really kind of sad. I just kind of don't like cock in my ass. I just kind of don't like it. Unfortunately because of that I will probably be in it for only a few years.
Big D: What's your take on some of these girls in porn who admittedly do not like anal but just kind of grin and bear it and do it anyway because the money is better?
Roxy Deville: I try really, really hard to not let my personal feelings influence the way I feel about other people. That said, I just try not to do anything I don't want to do. No matter how many paychecks there are at the end of the day, you still have to live with yourself. When all of that money is gone you are still going to have to live with yourself. It's not worth it to me. I would hope that other people would feel the same way that a couple extra bucks is not worth your soul. To each his own. If they can sleep with themselves at night, more power to them.
Big D: What's your take on those people that place judgment on porn as a whole and say that it is degrading to women and misogynistic?
Roxy Deville: To be real honest with you, I don't concern myself with any of that. I don't care. No matter what you do someone is always going to hate it. There's always going to be someone saying, 'they're always keeping the woman down. The woman is always abused everywhere on television, films, modeling and porn'. In any fucking career you can debate if the women are being kept down so I don't even care. If they have a really big issue with it, they weren't going to give me money for it anyways.
Big D: Do you have favorites when it comes to studios and the people you like to work with?
Roxy Deville: Yes, of course. I definitely have my favorites and I am definitely not quiet about my favorites. I love, love, love working for Kelly Holland and Skye Blue. I love PT (Paul Thomas) and Shyla over at Vivid. David Stanley at Wicked is a fucking hoot to work with. He's fantastic. I do really well with the bigger companies that do more of the feature type stuff. They are not asking me to do a whole bunch of ATOGM and shit. They are a very, very pleasant group to be around. As far as male and female talent, I have a lot of guys that I really, really like to work with. Right now Gianna is like my bitch. She is my favorite chick to work with it's retarded. She is incredible.
Big D: What is it about Gianna that makes her your favorite?
Roxy Deville: I don't know what it is. She is a woman. She is a fucking, HOT woman. Her body is like nothing I have ever seen before. A body like hers does not exist in nature. It's incredible. Her air about her is just soooo sexy. It's insane. I am into her totally.
Big D: Sounds like Gianna is on your hot list for right now but are there any girls or guys that will always be a favorite of yours no matter how long you or they stay in the business?
Roxy Deville: Steven St Croix is my all time, no matter what happens, favorite guy. Whenever I hear that I am working with him my reaction is, 'Oh my God! I am so excited!'. Whenever someone asks me, 'who do you want to work with?' his name always comes up. He is my favorite, absolutely. I like chicks but I am real fucking picky about chicks. There are only a couple that I am really into. I don't think Gianna is going to be going away anytime soon. I have my little porn wife, Gia Paloma. As soon as women are allowed to get married and have it really stick in Los Angeles, we are going to get married. We're going to buy each other rings. It'll be cute. We'll have our own little porno wedding. Yeah, I totally have my favorites.
Big D: Some of the girls I talk to can not get enough of the Porn Valley lifestyle. They go to all the porn premiers, they are a regular at Porn Star Karaoke up in Burbank and they are just immersed in the porn lifestyle. Other girls I talk to treat porn as their job and they have other interests and other friends who are totally removed from the porn atmosphere. Where do you fit in?
Roxy Deville: I would say I am very removed. It's not that I don't enjoy the people in porn, because I truly do. I love going to work most of the time. I really like everyone but that doesn't mean I want to make porn my life. When Spiegler (Roxy's agent, Mark Spiegler) will call me and say, 'Alright we gotta go to this on this day.' It's like, 'Mark, no. I am not going. I don't want to go'. I don't know. I just like to sit on my couch with my dogs and my boyfriend and watch movies and be a nerd and go to Target. I'd rather not live the porn life. I am not a party chick anyway. Even in my private, real life with my friends I have had forever, it will take an act of God to get me out of the house.
Big D: So you like to be more of a homebody that doesn't go out and party and would rather chill out at home with your boyfriend. How does that work? You said you love to go to work and fuck Steven St Croix but then come home to your boyfriend. You don't have a regular job where you sit on your ass in front of a computer. You are a porn star and yet you still maintain a relationship outside of porn.
Roxy Deville: We're very, very honest with each other. He knows that I have people that I really like to work with. I will sometimes say, 'Oh I had a great day today, I had so much fun, I did this, etc.' But after it is done, those people don't call me. I don't call those people. When I come home from work, I come home from work. When that happens I am home and I am his and I am normal again. I'm not Roxy Deville anymore. It works out really well. Every once in a while when I have to go away for a few days on a trip or I am at a Penthouse shoot until four in the morning he sometimes tell me, 'Babe, I am kind of jealous right now'. Then I will tell him all about it so he is not left out and then we're okay. He just gets jealous when I am gone for a really long time. He knows that when I am home I am me. The make-up comes off the sweat pants go on and everything is back to normal.
Big D: You've only been in the porn business for about a year now but you have not appeared in a ton of stuff compared to some girls that have been in for the same amount of time. Why do you think that is? Do you pick and choose your jobs and are a bit more selective? Is it because of the fact you don't do anal and you may have missed out on being cast in some more adult DVDs?
Roxy Deville: It's really weird. I wish I could understand it. I have shot over 180 hardcore movies and I get a lot of work. I do a lot of work. It is not like I am not working. It's just that a lot of the stuff hasn't come out yet. I've done a lot of work for the bigger companies and their stuff takes longer to come out. I work a lot with Playgirl and they do not put out a lot of DVDs. When they were still shooting a lot they were working me something like four or five times a month. I work for Vivid, Wicked and Penthouse a lot and it seems like I am almost shooting exclusively for them. I do the Cinemax movies and the HBO movies that won't show up on XRentDVD.
Big D: You have been doing a lot of movies for the feature studios like Vivid and Wicked but you have also done your fair share of Gonzo for studios like Red Light District, Vouyer Media, 3rd Degree, etc. Do you have a preference between gonzo over features?
Roxy Deville: To be very, very honest, I do prefer to do the features. I know you have to be there for a really long time. You have to shoot the set-up and you have to shoot cut aways and it just takes forever. It's so much less soul sucking, you know what I mean? It's a really pleasant day and everyone is really cool and you all get to know each other. It's really kind of fun because we get to goof off and throw muffins at the camera guy. It's fun. It's a fun day. With gonzo, while you do get paid very quickly and the day is shorter, I am not into throat fucking brutalizing or fucking your face so hard that it requires you to have your make-up running all down your face. It's not my bag. It's not what I am into.
Big D: I took a look at your myspace page and reading your interests really made me want to talk to you. You are all over the map with your interests. You said, 'I love bad movies, big asses, high heels, Boston Terriers, getting pedicures, Macaulay Culkin, butt plugs, garlic on anything, big hair, all things pink, corsets, The Rainbow on Sunset, Betsey Johnson, amputees, latex, being tan, goddamn Starbucks (so help me Christ!), fisting, Too Short, Plushies, Golden Girls, getting choked out, people with total jail house tattoos, giving amazing BJ's, leopard print, chicks with dicks, the smell of dirt, getting presents, ball gags, King Diamond, rim jobs, having my ass beaten till it bleeds, scouting out terrible shit at the local Goodwill, fur, nail polish, seamed stockings, eating meat (you can stick your carrots up your ass!), Gerber daisies, dirty little whores, Hello Kitty, being a Spiegler girl (I still say that we need our own sweatpants!), going to the Slauson Swap Meet, leaving Christmas lights up all year, strap-ons, clowns, Italian food, Marc Jacobs, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and Mr. Tom Jones.' Feel free to elaborate on any of those things as to why you enjoy them.
Roxy Deville: (laughs) Well, going to Goodwill and scouting out terrible shit. My wish is to one day become Courtney Love mixed with Betty Davis from 'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?'. I want to be them when I get older. I love it. You really have a far better chance of finding bad, old clothes at your local Goodwill than anywhere else. As for the smell of dirt, I actually have a perfume that actually smells like dirt. It is the fucking best smell ever. If I could have the world smell like one thing, it would be wet dirt. Choking. I do love a whole lot to be choked out. With the strap-ons, I have possibly the worst case of penis envy ever in the history of penis envy. I really, really, really wish I had a dick. Strap-ons let me pretend for a few minutes that I have a big cock. I love clowns. I am sitting in my living room right now and it is painted up like a circus surrounded by clown figures and clown heads. I don't know how to explain it. I kind of like whacky shit.
Big D: I had a chance to watch Blacklight Beauty which you were cast in. You must have been so conflicted in that you had a scene with Steven St Croix, whom you have admitted you love to work with, and he was dressed up as a clown, but you didn't get to fuck him. Taryn Thomas got to fuck him while he was dressed like a clown. How pissed off were you?
Roxy Deville: You have no idea how much that ripped my heart into 1,000 pieces whenever I am on set with that man and then he gets to work with someone else.
Big D: Especially in that movie because he was dressed up as some drunken, psycho rodeo clown.
Roxy Deville: I got to suck his dick. That was probably one of the more thrilling experiences in my life. It was kind of heart breaking. I was on there saying, 'there's a clown on set and it's him as a clown on set and I get to suck his dick for something like five minutes. What? This isn't fair.'.
Roxy Deville: You've only seen Blacklight Beauty and the Casey Parker DVD? I feel really bad for you that you've only seen those two. I have not seen Blacklight Beauty but I know how Casey Parker went and you probably think I am this douche bag bitch. That movie got me banned from Shane's World. I am not even allowed to go to any of their parties.
Big D: You know, I watched the whole thing including the behinds the scenes stuff and you could tell that you and Johnny Castle were not expecting this movie to turn into a whole road trip back to California from Colorado. I would have been a bit peeved too had I thought I was going to fly home and not take a 20+ hour road trip.
Roxy Deville: Yeah, it was horrific. I've warned everyone I meet now. I say, 'Shane's World road trip? Better make sure you go with Penny Flame. Better make sure she is going otherwise you are fucked in the ass'.
Big D: So seeing how that was not the best experience for you, what movies are out there that are a good representation of what Roxy Deville is all about?
Big D: Some of your Internet work has been in the bondage and S & M type genre. You like the more submissive stuff that goes along with that type of work?
Roxy Deville: Yeah, I love it. I love it, love it, love it. I am a very dominant person but sexually I am pretty submissive. It's fun. I loooooooooove being tied up. It's one of my favorite things in the world. If I could live in bondage everyday, that would be wonderful. On top of that, everyone that is out there (doing bondage) is really fucking cool. Before I got into porn I tried to be a bondage/fetish model but that didn't pay the bills. It's where my heart lies. However, I like it just in sex. I am not one of those people that has a 'master' and does the whole, 'yes mistress, no mistress' thing.
Big D: So you're not 'the Gimp' who wears a leather mask and sleeps in a box in the basement of some pawn shop like in the movie 'Pulp Fiction'?
Roxy Deville: No, I am not the gimp. In real life, I am the fucking master. But just as I'm getting fucked I want to be tied up and just brutalized.
Big D: I would be remiss if I did not ask this question. What is your fascination with learning the Yiddish language?
Roxy Deville: (Laughs hysterically) I love Yiddish! I don't know what it is. I hound Spiegler about it. I study the TV show 'the Nanny'. There was a lady that used to come into the dildo shop I used to work that spoke Yiddish. Her name was Hillary and I would ask her to teach me words. I just think it sounds so fucking cool! I don't know. I think I might want to be Fran Drescher when I grow up.
Big D: First job?
Roxy Deville: I was shampoo girl at a hair salon. My real career before I started doing porn was I worked in retail store management for Hot Topic for like five years.
Big D: First concert?
Roxy Deville: That was at the United Center in Chicago and it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers with the Toadies and Space Hog as the opening bands.
Big D: First car?
Roxy Deville: It was a red Plymouth Sundance and her name was 'Cherry Bomb'.
Big D: What's in your CD player right now?
Roxy Deville: The CD player in the bathroom is Wu Tang Clan, 36 Chambers and the iPod in the car is Eagles of Death Metal.
Big D: Favorite food?
Roxy Deville: It would have to be an Italian Sausage sandwich from Portillo's. There is a Portillo's now in Buena Park and they only used to be in the Chicago area. I drive all the way fuck down to Buena Park just to get an Italian Sausage sandwich.
Big D: First porn you ever watched?
Roxy Deville: I actually have the first porn I watched. It was my mom's boyfriend's. It's called Under the Table: Family Heat and Peter North was in it. It was this family that owned a restaurant and all the waitresses fucked the other waitresses. The waitress' boyfriend that came to pick her up would end up fucking the woman who owned the restaurant and whatever. It was so gross. I watched it a few months ago for shits and giggles because we found it in my stuff. God damn, it was awful.
Big D: Favorite position?
Roxy Deville: On camera, pile driver. Off camera, missionary. I love the pile driver. It kind of opens you up for maximum railing. You just lay there and get the shit pounded out of you and it's fucking great.
Big D: Go to the movies or go to the ballgame?
Roxy Deville: Oh Jesus. The movies. The boyfriend is from Boston so especially when the fucking Patriots went to the Super Bowl and the same year the Red Sox won the World Series, my whole fucking existence was based on sporting events. I can't handle that. I like to go do things while being able to move about freely and not have to wait for a sporting event to be over. I am actually very bitter with sporting events. I hate them.
Big D: What modern convenience can you not live without?
Roxy Deville: My Blackberry. Text messaging is God's gift. If I was not able to text message, I would probably rip my hair out.
Big D: Favorite mainstream movie?
Roxy Deville: I never ever get tired of watching The Royal Tenenbaums. I never ever get tired of watching Return of the Living Dead. Honestly I am kind of upset about this because I didn't want to like it because I hated House of 1,000 Corpses but I really loved Devil's Rejects.
Big D: Favorite vacation spot?
Roxy Deville: I love Florida. I don't know what it is. Not sure if it is the humidity or not. When I was a kid we used to go there all the time on vacations. I love beaches. I could give a fuck less about architecture or going to a museum. I don't care about sight seeing, I care about sand. I do beach stuff.
Big D: Person you'd like to meet that you have not met?
Roxy Deville: There are a couple. I want to hook up with Nikki Sixx. He is my man. I would want to meet Woody Harrelson. If he were still alive, Gregory Peck.
Big D: Place you want to visit but haven't yet?
Roxy Deville: Tahiti. They have glass bottom cabins on top of the water so you can look through your floor into the ocean and look at fish. How fucking cool is that?
