Vixen Studios, commonly referred to as Vixen, is an Internet pornography production company located in Los Angeles, California.

Company[edit]

Vixen Studios was founded in 2014 by French entrepreneur and director Greg Lansky, CEO of GL Web Media and Strike 3 Holding and Wes Meadows.[3] Lansky says he created the company to create higher-quality video that would be considered more 'artistic' than the normal realm of adult video content.[citation needed]

Vixen Studios owns and operates seven online adult film sites: Vixen, Tushy, Blacked, BlackedRaw, TushyRaw, Deeper, and Slayed. Slayed was launched on August 2021, and is the first all-girl brand, and was created as part of a mission to revolutionize female sex portrayals while attracting an audience of all genders and sexualities.[4][5]

Greg Lansky sold his stake in Vixen Studios in January 2020.[6]

Legal action[edit]

In 2017, Strike 3 Holdings, owner of Vixen Studios, filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court against individuals who downloaded and distributed the copyrighted movies and placed them on file-sharing networks.[7][8] Strike 3 alleged copyright infringement “on a grand scale,” identifying alleged thieves by IP addresses. The suit was settled in 2018.[9]

Awards[edit]

Vixen has won several major awards in the adult-film industry, including:
