Vixen! is a 1968 satiric softcore sexploitation film directed by American motion picture director Russ Meyer from a script by Meyer and Anthony James Ryan, and starring 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, racism, and violence.


In the heart of the Canadian wilderness, sultry and sexually assertive Vixen becomes quickly bored when her husband Tom, wilderness guide/pilot (Garth Pillsbury) leaves for the mountains. The hypersexual Vixen vents her frustration by attempting to seduce anyone within reach, including a client's wife, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and eventually her own brother (Jon Evans).

After witnessing Vixen's exploits throughout the film, it ends by veering into surprising political satire as Vixen's racism and the creeping threat of communism are discussed at length among the characters as the film draws to its end.
