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

Company

Vixen Media Group was founded in 2014 by French entrepreneur and director Greg Lansky, CEO of GL Web Media and Strike 3 Holding along with partners Steve Matthyssen and Mike Miller.[2] 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 Media Group owns and operates seven online adult film sites: Vixen, Tushy, Blacked, Blacked Raw, Tushy Raw, 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.[3][4]

Greg Lansky sold his stake in Vixen Studios in January 2020.[5]

Legal action

In 2017, Strike 3 Holdings, owner of Vixen Studios, filed a federal copyright infringement lawsuit in the Southern District of New York against individuals who downloaded and distributed the copyrighted movies and placed them on file-sharing networks.[6][7] Strike 3 alleged copyright infringement “on a grand scale,” identifying alleged thieves by IP addresses. The suit was settled in 2018.[8]

Awards

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