Cory Chase Talks to Daily Beast About Ted Cruz, Mainstream Notoriety

LOS ANGELES — Cory Chase gave an extensive interview to news site The Daily Beast, reflecting on her mainstream notoriety and the reactions to the 2017 news that the Twitter account for Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had “liked” a clip of one of her MILF titles.

Chase spoke to the Daily Beast’s Senior Entertainment Editor Marlow Stern, who regularly covers the adult industry and was a panelist at this year’s XBIZ conference.

The scene endorsed by the notably sex-negative Texas politician’s Twitter account — who once fought sex toys by claiming that “there is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship” — was called “Dicks for Two.”

Chase, according to Stern, played “a stepmother who, after stumbling upon her stepdaughter and her boyfriend getting down-and-dirty, joins in on the X-rated fun.”

Cruz has alleged the “like” was clicked by one of his staffers.

Becoming 'Meme-able'

The performer told Stern that in the wake of the event, she “became meme-able,” but, “instead of capitalizing on the moment, Chase turned down a number of interviews," choosing to let the "bizarre episode" speak for itself.

“I wasn’t doing a whole lot of press back then, and really, what can I say about it?” Chase said. “I’m definitely surprised that it happened, but how it happened and why it happened, I have no clue. It is very weird that someone like him would like something like that.”

“He’s said anti-porn stuff,” she continued, “and is even anti-masturbation devices and toys — everything of that nature. Since then, I think he’s become a little more relaxed about all that stuff.”

Chase also told the Daily Beast that at the time she had been preoccupied with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma’s devastation of Florida, where she lived.

“Once she was able to charge her phone, she opened her Twitter to find a warning telling her to adjust her settings because she’d received too many mentions,” Stern wrote. “She’d also received hundreds of missed calls, voicemails and emails from reporters requesting comment.”

The multi-accomplished Chase — who is also an Army National Guard reservist and a paramedic — declared herself “not a fan” of Cruz.

“And that’s why I live in Florida and not in Texas," she said.
