Stevie Trixx is here to educate, celebrate, and entertain
I caught up with Stevie Trixx to talk inspirations, aspirations, and navigating a lock-down.
What led you to start exploring a career in porn?
I started doing porn in 2018, when I did my first scene with Treasure Island Media.
I was looking for a way to make some extra money – I’d just started a freelance writing career and was escorting, but still needed a little more income.
I hadn’t planned to do porn initially, but it quickly became something important for me. I was tired of not seeing people like me represented in porn, and I was frustrated by how little acceptance I found in the gay cis community.
That inspired me to start making my own content, and I’ve been doing it ever since.
Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?
I don’t necessarily think of myself as an exhibitionist, but I am showing off naked pictures of my body on the internet, so I might just be!
I’m really proud of my body, and I’ve done so much work over the years learning to love and accept myself for who I am.
That’s what I really like to show off – that people don’t have to be ashamed of their bodies, even if they’re a little different. We should celebrate the diversity of bodies that exist among human beings.
Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?
I’d have to say some of the trans guys who came before me.
In the early 2010s, people like James Darling and Cyd St. Vincent were making FTM porn that really helped me to figure things out about my own identity as a queer trans person. They were celebrating transmasculine sexuality in a time when it was even less accepted than it is today, and I just thought that was so badass.
Some other folks who inspired me from that time include Jade Phillips, Gino Genet, and Viktor Belmont.
Why is JustFor.Fans a platform that works for you?
JustFor.Fans is perfect for me because I get to be fully in control of my own content, and the profits come directly back to me.
I’ve enjoyed the few scenes that I’ve made for other people, but the focus in those videos has always been on making my scene partner cum – while I usually don’t.
When I make my own stuff, I get to centre my pleasure and the things that get me off. It just feels more authentic, and I appreciate that about it.
What’s the creative and logistics process behind creating for JustFor.Fans?
I mostly contact or get contacted by other models who want to collaborate, and then we set it up from there.
I really want my work to look nice and to flow well, so I put a lot of time and energy into setting up and editing my scenes. I use a Canon G7X-Mark 2 to film, and it really just makes the scenes pop more than my iPhone.
When I’m creating, I try to think about what I’m looking for when I watch porn, and structure it based on that. That means having multiple angles and cutting the scene so you’re getting a series of well-paced, drool-worthy shots rather than just watching two people have sex from one angle in one continuous shot.
Do you enjoy the entrepreneurial side of the adult entertainment industry?
To be honest, I’m super anti-capitalist – learning how to market and build a brand for myself has been a steep learning curve. But I absolutely love engaging with my audience.
I know for a lot of trans people, answering questions and educating can be exhausting, but I see that as an important part of my job as a porn-star and public figure.
I’m a natural educator – I have a Master’s degree in Gender Studies – and I like to help people learn about trans folks, sexuality, and gender identity. I especially love to help out other trans folks who are asking themselves tough questions about their sexuality or their identity.
How is the current Covid-19 pandemic impacting you?
It’s really tough, to be honest. I’m still building my brand, so my porn isn’t really paying the bills yet, and because of the virus I can’t do any escorting at the moment.
Unfortunately, my solo content doesn’t sell very well and that’s all I can make right now – especially since I’m in NYC and not meeting up to film with other guys seems like the most responsible thing to do.
But I’ve decided that I’m going to spend this time hustling and coming up with creative ways to make content for my fans. So far, I’ve done a series of at-home workouts, taken some of my beautiful trademark pics, and filmed a little something sexy to put up daily. We’re all getting through it the best we can.
What are some of your goals and aspirations for the months ahead?
I really would like to ramp up my content creation to put out at least one video per week. I was on track to do that before COVID-19, so I have faith that I’ll be able to pick right back up where I left off once we’re all back from quarantine.
My big dream is to move to Los Angeles sometime in the near future, but I think we’re all pretty uncertain about where things are headed and when we’ll be able to get back to our normal lives, so that might be put off for a bit longer.
