Vixen is a 1968 satiric softcore sexploitation film directed by American motion picture director Russ Meyer. It was the first film to be given an X rating for its sex scenes, and was a breakthrough success for Meyer. The film was developed from a script by Meyer and Anthony James Ryan, and starred Erica Gavin. The film concerns the misadventures of the oversexed Vixen (Gavin), as she sexually manipulates everyone she meets. The story’s taboo-violations mount quickly, including themes of incest and racism.
