Hailing from Castro Valley, climaxXx is the alias for a superwoman that was created to rock the f*ck out of parties & fight the good fight in this male-dominated industry. She’s extra, unrated, sexy AF, and she’s built to make you uncomfortable so she can break down those walls in which women are often compartmentalized. She takes extreme pride in her craft, not only in perfecting it but in being “uniquely familiar”. Her sets are heavily focused on song selection, and will bring you back to old sh*t you completely forgot about to new sh*t you really should know about.
