XXXclusive: At HOme with Zoe Voss

Interview & Photos by Jeff Hubris

We are at Zoe Voss’ apartment. This is where she cooks, cleans, eats, drinks, bangs it out and uses the bathroom. Yes. This is Zoe Voss GROUND ZERO. We are in her intimate environment. Unspoken things are realized. Closely personal, highly subjective conclusions can be drawn from taking in the light, seeing her habits and smelling her fragrance. Zoe is an ex fashion model and knows how to pose for a photograph. She moves through space smoothly, like a predator without malice. Her limbs are especially long and dangerous and take you in. Unsafe at any speed. She speaks well and enunciates each word clearly. Her apartment is spotless. We have come here to learn everything. 

FOX: How old are you? 

ZV: Guess


You are pretty good. A lot of people think I’m like twenty-five. 

You’re from Minneapolis and two years out of high school? Did you graduate?

I graduated with highest honors and a 3.8 GPA.

What did you do after high school?

I went to culinary school, Le Cordon Bleu, and I did some of my credits towards my English major but I didn’t finish and get my degree, not yet.

You were going to college for a while?

I started culinary school before I was even done with high school, it was bang, bang, bang. School with modeling too.

What were you doing before you started in porno?

I guess I was just modeling full time. I’ve been doing it for about four years now. Upon moving to California in January 2010 I was modeling full time and then finally I was like fuck it, I’ve always wanted to do porn so I’m going to do it. Up until then I was just modeling full time.

Why have you always wanted to do porn?

That’s so weird and I don’t know why but I would end up stumbling on the late night HBO or Showtime porn when I was younger and I was like, What is this? Oh, that would be cool. I want to do this! I’ve always been intrigued by it and it’s always been this taboo thing and I wondered if I could do it, kick ass and make this huge name for myself.

How sexually freaky were you before that?

Not really. I mean, I had fun in high school, my junior and senior year and in college but I wasn’t having three ways or anything that exciting. Basically I was having sex with guys at parties after getting really wasted, that’s about the majority of it.

So then what was your motivation to get into porno?

I wanted to do it. It was exploratory. It’s cool ever since I started performing. There are so many different levels of my sexuality that I have discovered. Which is great, I mean I like girls and I like guys but I didn’t realize the difference and the similarities and everything in your sexual experiences with them and that was a pleasant surprise.

Tell me about the levels, what type of stuff have you discovered?

Oh god, the most obvious thing is the level of your orgasms. I’m used to stopping at the first level and thinking that was it, but in porn I learned that you keep raising the bar higher and higher and higher and building it and that’s crazy. Sometimes it’s so intense I can barely handle it and it’s like, wow where did that come from? I’d never even knew that was a possibility.

Are you orgasmic on set?


So you’re an exhibitionist?

I suppose.

Were you like that before?

I would occasionally do fine art nude modeling because I had the figure for it and I would always get kind of turned on when I did it. I don’t know why I’m like that whenever I’m naked. I probably was an exhibitionist before I got into porn but I probably wasn’t conscientious about it.

How do you get yourself off when you’re fucking?

I’m blushing now. What gets me going is external stimulation and I started blushing because I thought about my boyfriend. I visited home recently and when I came back he bought me a present, an Hitachi. And I started blushing because after two and a half weeks of not seeing him and him refusing to let me stop having sex with him and stop using the Hitachi we were having sex but the levels of orgasms were so high I could barely stand it and he refused to stop, like he wanted me to keep feeling it. This was with him and the Hitachi at the same time. It was like oh my God! I couldn’t walk the next day.

How do you like to get fucked? Is there anything in particular over another thing that does the job?

Well it’s just specific positions really. Mish and doggie are probably my two favorites.

Why do you think so?

Mish hits my G-Spot in a certain way and doggie he can just get really deep but it’s a different kind of orgasm. It really depends on the position we are in and it’s weird how many different ways a girl can orgasm and how differently it feels.

What is your most common way of masturbating?

I use my hand and rub my clit. The Wand is at his house. We keep it there but I’m kind of regretting the fact that I didn’t grab it though now that he’s out of town. The Hitachi is crazy. It’s like a slow building one and then all of a sudden, bam and you are convulsing. I love that thing.

The kitchen must be thoroughly investigated. Eat to live. Live to eat. Live to fuck. It’s the food/sex connection. The porn girl refrigerator…mmm…mmmm…mmmmm.

You have such an awesome body. 

People hate me for it because I don’t work out. I eat cheeseburgers all of the time and I don’t think I’ve set foot in a gym since I’ve been in California. I consider sex exercise. 

Show me what’s in your refrigerator. 

Like nothing. Juice, Red Bull and cheese. 

You said you were a cook. So show me some food. 

Here are some old grapes. I have some cheese. 

So you said that you eat a lot but there’s nothing in your refrigerator. 

I need to go grocery shopping. I just realized that right now. I eat a lot of pasta.

That’s so sick you eat pasta all the time and look at you. 

I’ve got Velveeta and I’ve got three jars of Alfredo sauce. Seriously, that’s all I eat. I love it. It’s my favorite. I’ve gained a little weight since I started porn. When I did fashion runway modeling I was really thin. Now that I’m twenty and I’m really not modeling that much any more I’ve kind of just let myself curve up a bit. I kind of have as ass now. When I was modeling I was like flat-chested. Now I even have boobies. 

Are you a rum drinker? 

I’m a what’s-ever-in-the-freezer drinker. 

But what do you like to drink? 

Margaritas. I fucking love margaritas. 

The bathroom is immaculate. There is a high level of hygiene throughout the Voss dwelling.  Of course, she still feels the need to apologize. 

I didn’t clean my bathroom. 

What? Your bathroom is so spotless. 

Nothing more is said. She starts posing on her own. Time is spent coming up with new permutations of bathroom enabled, pussy glorification positions. Long, fashion industry legs must be put somewhere. It’s a project finding the extra space needed in a restricted environment. Then it’s on to the adjoining bedroom. Where the magic happens. The bed itself is pristine and has absorbed countless masturbatory orgasms alone, and so much more. Zoe has gained a reputation as something of a sexual athlete. It’s the sports/fucking connection. She folds towels. 

My room is pretty plain right now. I’m kind of minimalistic. I have some stuff on my walls though. I’m so fucking domestic it’s ridiculous. I cook and I clean and I have candles around the house and I fold my towels all pretty. 

You’re super flexible. Did you do sports in high school?

I danced and did volleyball, track and basketball for a year. 

Has anyone ever told you to get a tit job? 

Yeah, but I don’t want it. I’ve always wanted bigger boobs but why? You get fucked up surgery and it’s just bad. 

Please don’t. 

Don’t worry. 

There are fluid posing sessions at her computer table, on a living room couch, on a pile of laundry and on the living-room carpet. 

I’ve already answered over 2,000 questions on Formspring. That’s a website where people can anonymously ask you questions. Let’s see…I’ve answered 2,090.

You said you get taken for Eastern European all the time. What is your ethnicity? 


Wow. So you think you’ll ever go back to cooking school? 


Do you want to reproduce? 

I’m pretty mature for my age and if I wasn’t so young I would probably have a family by now. 

When you’re twenty you probably don’t feel the mom instinct because you want to party. 

You know what’s crazy? I already have pretty bad mommy syndrome. I’m very protective of people. 

What’s it like with the family when you go back home? Did they learn what’s going on?

They know, they found out right away actually, which I’m thankful about. One of my ex-boyfriends in Minnesota was stalking me and he found out what I was doing. He found a picture of me from on set that someone put on Twitter or something. My first scene with Shorty Mac. First scene is huge dick and interracial and there is a picture of it. He sent it to my family—my parents, my sisters, my cousins, my grandparents—with the caption, Your daughter is really setting off her modeling career. I woke up one morning with about thirty new voicemails, half of which my mother was crying uncontrollably. Apparently my ex-boyfriend said I was also using drugs or something too. So my mom’s messages were like, You’re a prostitute. You need to come home. I just want you to come home. And she was sobbing. I finally sent her a message saying, you’re very upset right now, I’m going to give you a few days, let you cool off a little bit and then we can talk because if I try talking to you right now nothing is going to come through. I ended up talking to them and explaining everything. They told me they were disappointed and all of those things, but they understand. They don’t support it but they understand. That’s all I can ask for. I don’t ever expect them to support what I’m doing but as long they understand and still love me as they do, I’m okay with that.

Is it still the same deal with them now?

They just don’t want to hear about it. It’s funny because I know my dad watches porn. I haven’t walked in on him jacking off or anything but I’ve walked into his office and I’ve seen him quickly change the window of what’s there and I’m like, good lord! He’s told me if I ever work for Vivid to let him know because apparently all the porn he watches is from Vivid. When I went home we were at the state fair and I told my dad I was working for Vivid on the seventh and he was like, Fuck, really? So now he will probably never watch porn again.

Your first scene was with Shorty Mac? What the fuck was that all about?

[My agent Mark] Spiegler was like, Alright, your first scene is with Shorty Mac. Google him. So I Googled him and was like, holy shit, his dick is the size of a Coke can, how is that going to work, that is not physically possible. But me being stubborn I said, it’s fine, I can handle it. I didn’t know what the fuck I was doing, I didn’t know anything about the porn industry. This was my first scene ever and I hadn’t had sex for a month before my first scene either because I wasn’t dating anybody and I was here in California etc, etc. So I’m like, okay, this is going to be fun. I show up and I’m super nervous and jittery and everything. It was fine, it’s all just about relaxing, lots of lube but I could take the entire thing and I have a small vagina, I’m tiny and it was fine. I was sore the next day but I didn’t tear or any of that.

Do you do anal?

No, I don’t.

Have you ever done it in your personal life?

No. I just don’t like it. I tried it once and probably just had a bad experience but I didn’t like it. I’ll probably try it again in the future because I know I’ll like it if I do it right because my boyfriend tells me he’ll be really careful and he’ll show me and he’ll be really slow. We’ll see.

You said you were a model and you went to cooking school. What are some of your hobbies? Are you a big cooking person? Do you cook for people?

Yeah, I cook a lot. I’m thinking about making a cookbook, The Zoe Voss Cookbook, and have naked pictures of me in it and my recipes. I have a friend who is an amazing food photographer and I can put my classics in there like my Tater-Tot Hot Dish like my mom used to make, classic Minnesota dishes. Everyone wants to know what Hot Dish is and I have so much to teach them. I cook, I was a musician for ten years, I was in choir and I played alto saxophone and did jazz.

Who are some of your favorite sax players? Do you like jazz sax players?

I’m trying to remember the jazz player’s name who played for Pink Floyd all the time, I can’t remember his name but he was one of my favorites. I did theater in high school, I was an artist, and I painted.

When you started porn what was the adjustment period like, if there was one?

Luckily for me I take in my surroundings very easily and a friend of mine is in the business, Andy San Dimas. I knew her before I was in porn. I of course asked her a whole bunch of questions: What should I expect? What should I bring? Everything you know, tell me because I have anxiety so if I know what to expect going into a situation that is so much better for me than showing up and being bombarded with all these new things. So luckily for me I drilled her for every possible bit of information and I was fine. It took a little getting used to but it wasn’t a huge surprise, it was more nonchalant and comforting and blasé than I expected. Everyone is walking around naked and baby wipes and hey it’s not a big deal, it’s not a big production like I thought it would be. I had preconceived notions of people blowing each other everywhere and I don’t know why I thought that but it’s just like anything else.

I’m blown away that your first scene was Shorty Mac.

Some girls won’t do a scene with him because he is so big. I don’t think Andy will do a scene with him. I’m tiny. It’s pretty tight. But you can put a child through there. It’s all about relaxing. You can fit anything in there as long as you warm up properly, lube up properly and use common sense really. Some girls don’t want to because it’s painful if they don’t do it right and most of them probably haven’t done it right or deal with guys that aren’t gentle enough. Shorty Mac was really nice even though I couldn’t understand half the things he was saying.

So you are probably naturally gifted in that area?

Maybe, I can’t say that without sounding egotistical. I don’t know, I’ve always just liked sex and I’ve always been good at it and I’ve always enjoyed it and never been super shy about it. I just bought these little pajama shorts today and the match-ing top too. It’s the America’s Next Top Model brand too, which sucks because I was supposed to be on that show. But they kicked me off because I’m a pornstar. Tyra hates pornstars.


Oh, god yeah. The co-producer Dana called me and said, Honey we can’t have you on the show. We can’t bring you to New York and risk you fucking blowing photographers. And I was like, fuck off! So that was fun. It’s like discriminating against me for my job. But they can get away with it because they can say I’m not right for the show.

Have there been any moments that stuck out in porn?

I fucking love James Deen and my boyfriend and him happen to be best friends. My boyfriend has told me I can fuck whoever I want but not James because it would be weird. I’ve had sex with James for a scene but it’s funny that the one person I really want to fuck off camera is the one person I can’t. It’s comical and it’s how it would be.

Can you bring girls home for your boyfriend?

We’ve talked about it and we almost got a friend of mine to do it. She was dating this guy for seven years and they broke up and she hadn’t been laid in months. We invited her over for margarita night. She came over, we all got drunk, we were all lying in bed naked and I was about to go down on her and she got a phone call. Her roommate’s grandmother died or something and was all hysterical and she had to leave. We were both like, NO! The fucking worse timing ever.

Why don’t you get Andy San Dimas over here?



Her and I didn’t even sleep together off-camera, not even once. I hinted like a million times and she just didn’t take the bait. We had a great scene together, I ate the shit out of her like I was supposed to.

What was that for?

That was for Superman XXX.

Do you have a preference in guys?

I don’t really have a preference but I think the majority of the guys that I’ve dated have been dark haired. I really don’t have a specific type, it all really comes down to personality. I like somebody who is outgoing, charismatic and funny and sensitive, not overly sensitive. Someone I can have a serious discussion with and not have them start giggling and laughing or not take it seriously.

You’re doing features now along with gonzo?

I think I have a regular Gonzo scene, boy\boy\girl for Vivid soon. Superman was the first time I worked with them. I’m assuming that they like me, they’re booking me and working for them is huge exposure. It’s crazy, I never expected to be working for Vivid so soon, if at all. Pleasant surprise.

Do you get called for teener stuff?

Yeah, it’s funny because I look like a teen but I’m the opposite of one.

How do you mean?

If someone met me and didn’t know how old I was they wouldn’t expect me to be twenty. Everyone assumes I’m about twenty-five, not that that’s much older.

You don’t have a youthful demeanor. Your demeanor is very lady-like but your body is more teener-esque.

Its funny how lady-like I am when asked what I do. It’s like, I’m…I’m in movies. The adult kind. They’re like, What?! Completely shocked or they assume I’m kidding. No, I’m not kidding.

What do you want to do with your money?

Good question. Pay off all my student loans, almost done with that. Get a house, a decent car and get myself a good grounding for the future. 

How much are you working? What’s it been like for you?

It changes a lot. It’s either two weeks of not working to a week of working every day. But lately every month it has been five to ten grand a month. But I’ve been working, thankfully and not a lot of people can say that right now. Which sucks, but…

You have a look that people want.

You gotta take advantage of it.

She’s back in the kitchen mixing herself another drink. She might go out into the night to meet some friends, but maybe not. A silent web has been woven. What have we learned? Everything and nothing. Within Zoe Voss’ range you’re a prisoner. Escape if you want. No problem. Girl has ways. It’s hard to leave because you want so much more of everything. Wow.
