Alix Fox is a multi award-winning broadcaster/journalist/sex educator who has more slashes in her job description than there are in Edward Scissorhands’ shower curtain, yet strives to achieve her trademark “decent indecency” at everything she takes on.
She presents BBC Radio 1’s groundbreaking show Unexpected Fluids: an entertaining yet educational comedy programme where listeners share “real life tales of sexual fails”, then Foxy and co-host Riyadh draw out the learning from the LOLs. Keen ears can catch her covering the live Radio 1 Sunday Life Hacks slot from 4pm-7pm now and again, too; popping up up on Radio 4 Women’s Hour and The Today Programme; and making documentaries for BBC 5 Live and BBC World Service.
Over on Netflix, Fox consulted on the script for young adult comedy drama series Sex Education, starring Gillian Anderson.
As well as appearing as a resident advisor assisting with peen-‘n’-vageen problems on E4 TV show The Sex Clinic, Fox continues to answer listeners’ most intimate enquiries as an X-rated agony aunt on magazine-style podcast The Modern Mann with Olly Mann. Alix also created The Guardian‘s hit documentary podcast, Close Encounters.
For well over a decade, she’s written about kink, relationships and in publications including Stylist, Cosmopolitan, Red, Marie Claire, Vogue, Fabulous, Time Out and more, having previously been an editor on cult alternative culture title Bizarre.
Alix is a spokesperson and strategist for sexual health companies including ONE condoms and Japanese sex toy firm TENGA, and is resident Sex Expert at Superdrug. She was a face of National HIV Testing Week 2018 on behalf of Terrence Higgins Trust, and is a proud Ambassador for Brook young people’s sexual wellbeing charity.
