Alexis Fawx: A Lesson in Self-Awareness

Alexis Fawx is a woman who knows what she wants and has a blast accomplishing it in every phase of her life.
The over-thirty superstar is dynamic and well-educated with a mind-body connection that empowers her career. Alexis’s confidence and electric energy have served her well during her five years in adult entertainment.
Raised in “a small middle-class family,” Alexis didn’t have a long-term plan career-wise. Nevertheless, she did get a formal education with a degree in psychology.
“I love how the mind and body work together,” she says.
Later when Alexis moved to Florida, she became a massage therapist and discovered that her academic background was right in sync with her profession. “Massage is all about that mind and body connection,” she states.
No doubt. It has benefited her in porn, as well.
The popular MILF performer goes on to say that her adult career is a perfect fit for her. And, it has its rewards. She’s nommed for 2019 AVN MILF Performer of the Year.
“It (porn) has empowered me as a woman” Alexis adds with a smile. “I love what I do. I'm just taking my passions and really enjoying life.”
She’s turning those passions into “a money-making machine,” Alexis says, and that includes a comedy show she produces and hosts.
Of course, throw in shooting scenes and camming and the formula for porn success Alexis-style is enriched.
There’s more to this native Pennsylvanian. She uses her self-awareness, which includes enjoying time alone, to energize her life.
“If you're always working on your inner self, the things around you become better. If you're healing the inside of you . . . then you're healing people because you're approaching things in a totally different way.”
Alexis goes on to talk about the destructiveness of anxiety and how best to tackle it to strengthen “your state of mind.” For her the key is to recognize if the situation causing anxiety is even “real.”
“We sometimes just worry about stuff that doesn't even exist. If it's not real then stop worrying about it because it doesn't matter.”
After she served a stint in the military, Alexis stayed in South Florida as a paralegal, a job she considered to be a dead end.
Looking for something stimulating, she checked out Craigslist and the rest is history, as they say.
“They had an ad to be an extra for Dancing Bear. It happened to be the same studio as Bang Bros.”
When she arrived, “they gave me a laundry list of things to make more money if you wanted to do it. Got to blowjob [and] I raised my hand without even thinking.”
They offered her the shoot and she decided to go after it.
There is an Alexis Fawx lesson here. We’ll let her nail it for you.
“If you start just saying ‘yes’ to opportunities, it really opens up a lot of doors. If I never said ‘yes’ to that opportunity right there, I wouldn't be sitting here today.”
Finally, Alexis believes there is talent in porn beyond sex on camera and she wants performers to flourish.
“We have some phenomenal actors in the industry because there are people with talent that get overshadowed because this (porn) is their life. This is how they make their money and so their singing or their dancing, or whatever, gets overshadowed,” she says.
“Maybe they don't have the avenue, maybe they can't get on stage.”
But she’ll offer them the opportunity they need: her comedy show. Best of all, it’s in Hollywood.
“Hey, come, reach out to me, I'll put you on stage. You never know who's sitting in the audience, you never know who's gonna be walking around that day and decide to come to my show and be sitting in there and be like 'Oh wow, this person has a great voice, I wanna connect with them,’” Alexis Fawx announces.
It’s all about faith and opportunity, just like the mind-body connection insists.
