The adult entertainment industry has introduced us to incredible talent throughout the years, but one particular adult film star has adapted and continued to deliver incredible performances in her scenes and always stayed true to herself. Phoneix Marie is a woman who is multi-dimensional. She’s worked for the top companies in the industry (Adam & Eve, Brazzers, Wicked Pictures, and Jules Jordan Video). Phoneix has also won multiple awards during her tenure in the industry. What also makes Phoenix a fan favorite is her hobbies and interests outside of the industry: rebuilding classic cars, owner of Harley Davison motorcycles, and a comic book aficionado. You have to admire Phoenix Marie and the mark she’s made in the industry. Adult film stars come and go, but there will never be another Phoenix Marie.
When was the moment that you decided to get into the adult entertainment industry?
Phoenix Marie: Well, I never would have thought that ten and a half years ago I would be doing pornography. I got into it because I wanted a new career. I loved sex and had just been to an AEExpo with a co-worker so he wouldn’t be alone. I met Randy Spears at the Wicked booth, and he gave me LA Direct Models information, and they asked me to come, and I did. After the nerves in my first scene, I really loved the freedom to express myself and my sexual interests in a safe environment.
What was the beginning stage of your career like?
Phoenix Marie: I was very fortunate that the Internet was coming on board and companies like Brazzers, BangBros, Naughty America, and Reality Kings took a liking to me and helped to promote me.
Did you have guidance in your career or did you figure everything out on your own?
Phoenix Marie: Though we may not love each other today, Derek Hay of LA Direct Models did a great job of representing my ex-boyfriend and me of an on and off of five years, Christian XXX was very knowledgeable in the ways of the porn world, and he helped me.
How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a “favorite failure” of yours?
Phoenix Marie: Failure. . . in life or porn? A failure in porn: I would say in the beginning, probably believing I was a nuisance when I would want to speak about not wanting to work with certain male performers. I eventually realized I perform better with those I liked so I created a “Yes List” of the best stars in the industry and stuck to my guns making my sex even better. Life: always falling too hard too fast with the wrong person. I trust too easily.
What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?
Phoenix Marie: I collect comic books, figures, and really anything Marvel and DC (Harley Quinn). I started when I was in fifth grade and continue to today. That’s how I picked the name Phoenix from my love of X-Men.
In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?
Phoenix Marie: Becoming confident in me. I know it sounds silly, but we all have our insecurities in life. I learned to love myself and all my flaws.
Is there anything that you haven’t accomplished in the industry, but would like to?
Phoenix Marie: Well, I never did a showcase; kinda bugs me, but I’m happy with all of the scenes and experiences I did get, so it’s okay.
What are your thoughts on social media and has it had an impact on your career?
Phoenix Marie: I think social media has allowed fans an intimate look at who the girl really is and how she spends her time outside scenes. Some men will argue it takes away from the fantasy aspect to which I usually reply, “then don’t follow.”
You’ve been one of the top performers in the industry for quite some time. What’s your secret to being successful in a tough industry?
Phoenix Marie: I think you have to be able to adapt. Plastic surgery is expensive, so I just got more creative, but stayed true to myself and my limitations I set for do’s and don’ts.
What can people expect to see from you in the future?
Phoenix Marie: I am currently in school and working full time at a medical office doing GAINSWAVE, FemiWave, and CoolSculpting. As far as porn, I don’t know.
