Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you entered the adult industry initially?

(Laughs) Oh, my gosh, the adult industry. Let’s see … I was eighteen and I had just finished high school, and I decided to leave my parents’ house to go live with a friend and work in a video store that I hated – I hated working there. I was there for a couple of months and this guy who would always come in would bug me – he’d be like, “Are you eighteen?” I said, “Yes,” and he’s like, “Well, I’m scouting for the porn industry and was wondering if you’re interested.” (Laughs) I looked at him and was like, “Uh … no, buddy, I’m not.”

He just kept being persistent about it for about two or three months, finding my MySpace and getting a hold of me through there. And then one day, I was like, “You know what, buddy? I’ll go on set with you and check it out. I’ll see what it’s about.” I went on set and I saw this craziest, most intense scene ever – I’d never seen anyone have sex in front of me before. I kind of shrugged my shoulders and said, “Yeah, I can do this – I’m down.” (Laughs) And it really happened overnight – one day I was curious and the next day I was on a set shooting my very first scene.

You mentioned entering the business at the age of eighteen, which means you have literally spent your entire adult life in the adult industry. Do you think it has worked to your advantage in the way that despite being so young, you still have a number of years’ experience to your credit?

Yeah, I think so. A lot of people like to tell me that they have watched me grow up in front of their eyes and it’s kind of true. I got into the adult industry so young and I was very inexperienced sexually. I had just lost my virginity and my very first time performing fellatio was on camera, so people from the start have watched me grow and develop and become who I am today in every aspect – with my body, my personality, my performance. Sexually, everything I have done, they have watched it, they’ve been there every step of the way and I kind of like that. I like growing up in front of people’s eyes like that and them appreciating me for it. (Laughs)

I understand you recently spent a couple of weeks in London, England, is that right?

Yes.

Can you tell us a little bit about that trip?

It was my second trip there. It was for Elite TV, which is like an adult chat line that is broadcasted live. It’s a different experience; I’ve never done anything like that before. Usually we perform on-camera, but this, it’s a live chat with your fans – they call in and some want to talk with you and some want to live this fantasy and play it out with you. It’s pretty cool to get to know so many fans in one evening. I like it. (Laughs)

You have starred in a number of parodies over the past year or so – The Incredible Hulk, Thor XXX, The Smurfs, even an Elvis parody.

All kinds. (Laughs)

(Laughs) Yeah. And you were cast recently in the starring role of Adam & Eve’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer parody.

Yes. That’s the one I was going to mention. (Laughs)

(Laughs) Can you tell us a little bit about that film?

It was an honor to be Buffy. I kind of grew up watching the show. I wasn’t a big fan, but I know how a lot of people are still obsessed with the movie and TV show, so just to be a part of that, I was really excited. I was told about this project about a year ago and every time I saw the guy who wrote it, I was like, “When are we gonna do it?” “When are we gonna do it?” He’s like, “Soon – I promise you, it’s going to happen.” And when it finally came to pass, I was so honored to be Buffy and the amount of fans that respond to it … they love it. They go crazy for it. I loved doing that for them. (Laughs)

It was a great experience and it was a very different role for me because I’m always the happy girl-next-door – very giggity, very energetic, and this character was just very serious, not so much of a smiling role. I definitely had to tone it down and it was a little bit harder to play, but I was very excited when the outcome came out. It was really cool.

I saw the trailer and it looks like a great movie – good production and a stellar cast as well.

Definitely.

You also had a main role playing Gabrielle in Exquisite Films’ Xena: Warrior Princess parody, is that right?

Yes, I did. That was another role I was very stoked about. I got to play Gabrielle alongside Xena, who was played by Phoenix Marie – and I love her, she’s great. It was really cool – I got to kick some ass and have a lesbian scene. (Laughs)

Of all the parodies you have appeared in, which would you say is your favorite?

Batman, for sure. That was the one that really got me out there with the fans. I was no longer Lexi Belle anymore – I became Batgirl. Everyone called me Batgirl for that whole year. It was pretty cool to be walking down the street and have people yelling, “Batgirl!” (Laughs) But that was my favorite role – I got to have sex in a cape, I got to have sex with Robin (Laughs). It was quite an experience – we pulled 22-hour days on set, a really, really long week of shooting, but it was so worth it and I would love to do it again.

You do quite a bit of work with Pink Visual, both performing and in various capacities as a representative for the company. Can you tell us a little bit about that?

Pink Visual is one of my favorite studios to work with. They are so good to me. They let me explore my fantasy side in a way that other production companies don’t really let you – it’s more of a controlled shoot. With Pink Visual, it’s more of what I want, who I want, how I want it, and as a performer, they really let you shine through.

They are really great. They cater to the tech/nerd side of having porn on iPads, iPhones and virtual interactive websites and stuff.

I love that company. They are really good to me and I like that they let me do what I want when it comes to performing. They are one of the best.

Yes, Pink Visual is a favorite of many performers. They are very professional and a really good group over there.

They are. They’re really great.

You’ve obviously had a very successful career, but are there any aspirations left that you still wish to accomplish?

You know, there’s always talk about me going into the anal side. I’m coming up on my seventh year in the industry and most girls would have already conquered that by now. I’m not sure if I’m saving it or just downright terrified (Laughs), but other than that, I really want to get into the directing side. I have my own website and I love producing my own porn and having my own creative flow with that. So maybe one day, I’ll get to go a little bit bigger than my website and direct for some other companies. But that’s a long-term goal and I’m not quite ready for that. I like where I am right now. I’m not going to do anything less and I’m not going to do anything more. I’m just very content. But I have a feeling I’m going to be around for a while longer.

As we discussed earlier, you have spent your entire adult life as part of the industry. Speaking as someone with that perspective, is there one misconception about the adult business in general that bothers you or that you wish you could dispel?

I guess it would be different per girl, but with me, yeah, people get the wrong idea. They think of a stereotypical porn star as a downright slut all-round, twenty-four/seven. That’s not always the case – there are other girls who are like that and being in this industry is a good idea for them. But for me, I am truly your girl next door. I am so normal (Laughs). I have lived the most normal life ever. And I find it a little bit boring because I have such an awesome on-camera life of traveling and being Lexi Belle and being able to do all of these fantasies with guys and girls that my personal life … it’s pretty mellow. You would have never guessed what I do in the industry if you just walked up to me on the street. And I like that – I like being a little deceiving to people. (Laughs)

(Laughs) I’d like to ask a little bit about yourself as a person if that’s okay.

Sure.

Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up as a child and teenager?

The beginning half of my life I grew up in the South, mainly Louisiana and Mississippi. And then I came out to California when I was about fourteen and pretty much lived in Burbank in Southern California up until I was eighteen.

High school, I guess, is what really kind of pushed me to want to be in the adult industry later on in life because I was such a shy, very prude girl. I was in the marching band, I was a dedicated band geek. I had a few friends, but I wasn’t popular at all. (Laughs) I was not even an attractive girl – I had a raging Mohawk, I had piercings, I had the craziest wardrobe. I was very punk rocker and very aggressive, very rebellious, but at the same time very shy. I had a boyfriend here and there, but I never really talked to guys, ever. I didn’t even really have sex up until I was seventeen.

And the next year, everything just switched: the shyest, most prudent girl that nobody knew in high school became the new girl in the industry that everyone wants to shoot and everyone wants to be a part of. All of a sudden, I’m becoming popular and known and people recognize me. It was just a drastic difference and coming from being so shy and kind of like an outcast in high school and coming into an industry where you are so welcomed and everyone adores you and everyone wants more of you, it kind of felt like home. You’re like, “Finally – this is where I belong.” And I like it. I like having people embracing me.

And of course, once you start to get well-known in the industry, all the people that ignored you in high school start hitting you up and they want a part of you. And you’re just like, “Hey, dude, you weren’t there when I was unsuccessful. Now you want to be a part of my success.” It really opened up my eyes to who I am as a person.

I like the industry. I like growing for them, I like being a part of this family. So, it’s a drastic difference from high school to the adult industry. I definitely came out of my shell a lot when I got on camera.

You mentioned being shy and keeping to yourself in high school. Was it somewhat of a culture shock when you entered the industry as far as taking some time to adapt to such a different atmosphere?

Oh, yes. It was crazy. I was nicknamed “Deer Eyes in the Headlights.” I didn’t know what I was doing. I had never had sex on camera before. I had never even had sex with someone with the lights on; I had never seen a real penis in front of my face (Laughs) or have someone in the room with you and hear sex noises going on in the other room. So, it was definitely shocking and I was still very much a shy girl on camera.

I don’t recommend it, but if you were to watch my very first scenes, you can tell I don’t know how my body works; I don’t know what an orgasm is. You can tell I’ve never relaxed during sex and let go and moan and close my eyes. I’m pretty much staring at the camera the whole time and laughing because I’ve never done anything like this before. And that’s the part where you see me grow. You start to see these scenes where I’m just staring and I’m laughing and I don’t know how to say “penis” without cracking up, I was so immature.

And then you start to see me really enjoy myself exploring girls and guys and myself, and realizing what an orgasm is and learning how to multiply it. So, it was quite an experience – very different. It’s like black and white, very drastic. I loved it – loved every moment of it. (Laughs)

Seeing as you have essentially grown up in the industry, as you mentioned earlier, is there any specific advice you would offer potential performers who are looking to enter the adult business?

Well, you know, I’ve never really met a girl who has done it the way I have. But if a girl were to just dive head-first and she was very inexperienced and new, then just embrace it. (Laughs) Just allow yourself to grow and get comfortable and explore your sexual side and your fantasies.

As a person, a lot of girls come into the industry saying, “I like this,” and “I want that,” and then they start to get into it and they realize a lot more about themselves. Or the opposite: they realize this is not what they want to be a part of and they leave. So, the most honest advice I can give is to come in with a clear head of what you want and go from there.

What are some of your interests and hobbies away from work?

Well, these days I don’t really have too much time to do too much, but I guess my favorite thing to do would be snowboarding. Every chance I get I like to go out to Big Bear and just try to not get hurt (Laughs) and do a little snowboarding every now and then.

When I’m not doing that and I’m home just for a day off, I’m usually with family or hiking with my dog and just relaxing, hanging out with friends. Other than snowboarding, I don’t really have much going on these days. (Laughs)

How about favorites – favorite TV show, movie, musical artists and things like that.

(Laughs) Oh, man. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but I guess the only things I really watch would be South Park and Family Guy. But other than that, I think it’s pretty mindless TV.

I never go out to movies, but music consumes my life. I listen to a lot of rock, a lot of electronica, a lot of dubstep. I definitely can’t pick one artist, it would take forever to pick one. But I’m really big into the music scene. I love to go out, listen to music, go to raves, underground dance parties – I’m all about that.

Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise most people?

You know, I don’t know. I’m pretty much an open book. (Laughs) I don’t know. Everyone knows that my first time ever giving a BJ was on camera, everyone knows that I was such a geek in high school. (Laughs) I’m pretty much open these days, so I’m not hiding anything anymore.

Are there any upcoming or current projects that you would like to mention?

This weekend, I just shot the Hangover parody for Adam & Eve, so that was a lot of fun. Very entertaining set, couldn’t stop laughing. That was with me, Tori Black, James Deen, Dane Cross, Kimberly Kane … there’s a bunch of big names in there. So, that one will be coming out soon.

The Buffy one was my favorite that I’ve done this year. And other than that, I’ve just been doing a lot of traveling and dancing.

Do you enjoy feature dancing?

I do. It’s a lot of fun. I’m not the best dancer, but I definitely like to entertain. And traveling and meeting the fans and just kind of showing off a little bit for them and getting them all excited, it just makes my day. I love doing anything for the fans. It’s what keeps you around longer.

To finish up, is there anything you wish to say to readers?

Just the same old thing: I love my fans so much and I’m going to keep doing what I do just for them.

Very cool. Thank you, it’s been fantastic chatting with you and I appreciate the time. I wish you continued success and take good care.

Thank you so much. Nice chatting with you.
