I like Raven Roxx a whole lot. Not only is this trans beauty a memorable performer, but she also loves Ford Mustangs. I spent a lot of time in my best friend's Mustang in college. It was also in college where I enjoyed transsexual performers. Raven reminds me of a classic just like her mentor Wendy Williams. She knows what she likes and how to make her fans happy and engaged with her. Classics know how to connect with their target audience. Raven Roxx has all the qualities of a classic performer. Now, it's time for her to shine and show us.
Hi Raven, Why is camming so satisfying for you?
Hi! Well, that’s an easy one, thank you for easing in, most guys in the porn industry don’t know how to do that, LOL. I think for me, I love camming because I get to know my fans. It’s different than just doing porn in that there is a genuine, candid interaction between the performer and the viewer. I truly love my fans, and camming gives them a way to engage me instead of just watching me in a movie, and wondering what I’m like to chat with. I also get immediate feedback about what the guys (and girls) want, what they don’t. Trust me, they tell you pretty quickly both ways.
How did you get into the adult industry?
OK, so this takes a minute to explain. Around the middle of 2015, I had successfully transitioned fully and was living as a female. The act of coming out was like a drug to me. I was fortunate in my transition and it went very well, so after all the excitement and attention started to dissipate I felt this void, and life went back to being boring. Around that same time, Kimber Haven (@KimberHaven) and I had been frequenting The Lexington Tgirl parties that Wendy Williams (@TsWendyWilliams) puts on, and Kimber had actually started dancing there. She suggested I speak to Wendy to see if she needed another dancer, and she did so I started dancing. Not long after, Kimber started doing porn, of course I naturally was like “I want in” when I was able to see how much fun she was having. So Kimber set up a Betty Page/fireplace shoot and had me come over. The photoshoot went really well but then we got to the solo masturbation video part. Now I had never jerked it in front of anyone, so it literally took me 15+minutes to get off. Now, I can rub one out on cue. It’s funny how that works.
When did you realize that you were "different" from your male identity?
I always knew I was different. I knew from the age of 4-5 years old that I wanted to be a girl. But I came from a hyper homophobic family so I learned to suppress and hide. I did it by doing high school sports, joining the military, getting married, buying fast cars and making them go faster. I created a male “character”, but that’s all he ever was. Raven is who I’ve always been. In 2013 I finally was brave enough to actually start pursuing my dream of transitioning and living my life as Raven.
How was your experience with Shemale Stokers since that is your debut performance?
-- sponsored by --
It was actually a last minute deal. Wendy called me while we were in Las Vegas for the AVN’s, and asked if I wanted to shoot for Shemale Strokers. I was like “hell yeah I wanna shoot for Strokers!” So she gave me the info and it was set up. Now I don’t know how many of your readers have attended the AVN convention so I’ll explain. My shoot was set for 10:30am
. AM!!! We had been out partying our asses off the night before and I had gotten maybe 3 hours of sleep if I was lucky before I had to get ready. But I did and I got to the shoot 20 minutes early. An old military adage comes to mind”15 minutes early is 5 minutes late”. I wasn’t going to be late to a Shemale Strokers shoot. But the shoot went very well. Once we hammered out hair and wardrobe it went pretty quickly. I did get to taste Spunk lube once again, I’m so glad it doesn’t taste too bad. I have done enough solo scenes before that the photographer said “just let me know when you’re close and I’ll start filming again”. I promptly told him to get it rolling because I can be there in like 30 seconds. He got the money shot and we exchanged pleasantries while I got dressed. I thanked him and headed out to catch my Uber back to the condo. Later that day Kimber asked me how the shoot went. She also asked who shot me. Now I’m gonna admit something here, I don’t watch a ton of porn. I don’t even like watching my own. So I said it was a guy with a baseball cap and glasses. She asked if his name was Sammy, and I said yeah, that's it. She then excitedly says, that's Sammy Mancini! He’s the owner of Shemale Strokers you ditz! I knew what Shemale Strokers was but I didn’t know who owned it. I even have a membership to their site. But Sammy if you read this I’m sorry, you were such a sweetie. Had I realized who you were I’d have tried to put the moves on you!
What traits of a woman do you admire most? What makes a woman sexy?
When speaking of traits there are two types, physical and mental. I’ll start with the shallower of the two.
Physical: I have a broad spectrum of what I find sexy. But the top few would have to be 1. Gorgeous smile (it’ll get me every time), 2. Nice titties (yes I’m shallow), 3. Good hygiene, 4. Long hair
Mental: This is literally more important to me than physical. 1. Loyalty (most important), 2. Funny (make me laugh and I’m yours), 3. Able to have intelligent conversations, 4. Love to cuddle
Confidence makes a woman sexy. Forging her own path makes her sexy. And I’m not gonna lie because I love this myself. Show me a girl that loves cars, and she’s instantly 10x more sexy to me.
What traits of a man do you admire most? What makes a man sexy?
I’ll respond the same way as the previous question:
Physical: 1. The bigger the better, gimme a Vin Diesel type and I’m in heaven, 2. 5 o’clock shadow to short beards, 3. Tattoos (the more, the better), 4. Cute smile
Mental: This almost mirrors a woman's mental traits. But I would add that I want a guy who doesn’t care what anyone thinks and would be willing to defend me to anyone.
How were you as a kid?
I was a happy kid. I can’t say my gender dysphoria was so be that it ruined my childhood. I was not a very outgoing kid, probably a more shy, border lining introvert. I sound like a psychologist! But I rode bikes, played video games, had snowball fights. I played in Little League, and Pee Wee wrestling. I had a very typical childhood.
What was the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry when you started?
I’d have to use a Dolly Parton quote for this “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap”. Hair, makeup, wardrobe (OMG wardrobe), hundreds of pairs of shoes. This shit is expensive! No one wants to see a porn where the girl has bad makeup, bad wardrobe and shitty shoes. I literally spend thousands every year on wigs that hurt, makeup that’s caked on, clothes that barely cover anything and shoes that make it hard to walk. All in the name of being sexy. Don’t get me wrong, I love the end result too, but most people really do not realize how expensive looking this cheap is.
Wendy Williams has been an amazing mentor to you. What are your thoughts on this legendary performer?
Wendy is absolutely amazing. She has without a doubt been one of the most influential figures in transsexual porn. She was fighting for recognition when I still was hiding in the closet wondering if anyone else was like me. I knew who Wendy was long before I knew her. She is a powerhouse in transsexual porn, a legend, and I’m proud to call her a friend. I owe a large part of my success directly and indirectly to her.
What are your hobbies and interests?
Where’s my Xbox peeps? I love playing video games. Also when weather permits, one of my favorite hobbies is running. It’s not uncommon for me to go 4-6 miles whenever I go running. I love cooking, my favorites dishes that I make would lean Italian. Chicken Marsala, Fettuccini Alfredo, Spaghetti with meatballs. Going along with cooking, I like gardening. It’s great to pick your veggies fresh and prepare them knowing there's no GMO in them. And anyone that knows me knows my biggest hobby of all…..cars. Ford Mustangs specifically. I own a Cobra convertible that is set up for autocross events. It’s even used in one of my videos and in a separate photo shoot.
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
I love going to the events and meeting new people. The AVN’s, Fetish Con, stripping. These are all places where you meet some really cool people. Being an adult performer has put me in the path of some of the sweetest, most genuinely good people I’ve ever met. I mean I love fucking…..a lot. I can fuck without being in porn though. But just don’t meet people this cool outside the adult entertainment community.
Are you an animal lover? Are you a dog or cat person?
I love animals, they are so cute. Over the course of my life, I’ve had dogs, cats, birds, and horses. Without a doubt, I’m a dog person. I have a 16 year old dog who is my baby. I love that dog like he was a child of mine.
How does it feel when you meet your fans? Does it feel surreal that they look at you as a role model?
I’m kind of new to having fans, but I love my fans! It is an awesome feeling when someone approaches you and says something like “I know you, you’re Raven Roxx”. Which is usually followed by “I absolutely loved Lunchtime”. If you don’t know, Google my name and Lunchtime, you’ll see why. I have always loved helping girls earlier in their transition so it’s really not surreal to me being seen as a role model. I am the kind of person that will go way out of my way to help someone if I know they will genuinely appreciate it. With fans though, when someone approaches me and says they love my work it’s actually quite humbling as opposed to surreal. I’m just doing what I enjoy doing, the fact someone wants to watch me do it is just cream on top.
