‘I’m very excited; I’ve never headlined an event like this,’ Fox says

Hydrate Nightclub brings an XXX Edition of Sunday Funday on Nov. 14, when adult star James Fox dresses up as the host for the afternoon shenanigans.

Well, we know he won’t be wearing much clothing, that’s a given.

“I’m overdressed when I have a thong on,” he said, laughing, adding that he likely will be wearing a body harness.

And if he’s wearing shoes, that’s formal for him.

The beats that Sunday will be delivered by VJ George G – and proof of vaccination is required to enter Hydrate, located in Lakeview at 3458 N. Halsted Street.

“I’m very excited; I’ve never headlined an event like this,” Fox said. “This is trippy, fun and exciting. I don’t take myself too seriously, so, to see myself on a poster and (promotional) photo, it’s surprising.  It’s trippy and weird to see your face on a poster.

“I love to socialize with people. I’m fun and entertaining. That’s what I’ll bring (to the role). People often view adult actors as stuck-up, or (think that) they only talk to Only Fans members or other in the industry.  But that largely is not true, certainly not true for me.

“I have been told that I’m a good dancer, but I feel like I’m a ridiculous dancer. At the very least you’ll see some fun moves. Maybe people will think they are good, maybe not.”

Fox is an Atlanta resident who landed the gig through his partner, Jose Baggett, who formerly worked at Hydrate.

“I’m really just looking forward to having a chill, fun time, to meet people. Hey, any excuse to day-drink, I am there,” Fox said.

Fox and Baggett have known each other for a little more than a year and have been dating for a few months. “The real James is a genuine, sweet, honest person who will literally give you the shirt off his back, if it will make you happy,” Baggett said. “(When) I met him, he completely changed my life for the better.”

Fox said he likely will tap into a tequila or vodka drink during his stop at Hydrate, perhaps a tequila sunrise or vodka cranberry. “I’m a tequila fan,” Fox said. “Vodka always has a special place in my heart because, when you’re a poor college student, cheap vodka is popular. Hopefully I won’t get any cheap vodka at Hydrate.”

Fox said past visits to Hydrate have always been memorable, thanks to the customers and the employees. “I always have had a good time, a fun time, a night to remember. Hopefully, I can add to that,” he said.
