Busting the myths of porn with Australia most successful export

WHEN Australia was watching in awe as Margot Robbie got her Oscar selection last month, another Aussie movie star was also taking the US by storm.

But there’ s reasonable you might not have heard about it, mainly because Angela White is a adult movie star.

I first met Angela (her real name and porn name) six years ago at a Sexpo in Townsville, and it was pointed out to me in the past by Australian adult sector insiders how business-minded the lady was and how successful she would be.

Position with her in Las Vegas as she collected a great unprecedented 14 awards on the 35th annual Adult Video News Awards (widely known as “ the Oscars of porn” ), I had a proud moment.

This is a controversial and taboo world but it does not mean we shouldn’ t observe her achievements.

White is the only Aussie to have ever been inducted in the AVN Hall of Fame, the only All the to have ever co-hosted the AVN Awards (an industry honour in itself), and the only Aussie to have at any time won the much-coveted AVN Award for Female Artist of the Year.

Yes, her work is a little more physical than just about all — she describes as an adult performer as akin to being a sexual athlete. Nevertheless the fact that sex on display is the job and asset that is traded does not mean her professionalism, determination and passion for her work should be devalued.

With an Instagram following of two. 5 million people and an organic growth rate of your additional 5000 followers every day (something most influencers would probably dream of), sitting with White I learned that there is certainly more to becoming a good porn star than just having sex. This is an industry that requires severe business acumen, intelligence and a thick skin to access the top (or on the top, or perhaps on the side or in reverse cowgirl).

But what causes Ms White stand out from the crowd? “ Firstly, it’ s the fact that I take pleasure in what I do, ” the lady said. “ My passion is what makes me stand out to be a producer, director and a performer. Fans want to see and feel a real connection in screen and they can tell any time a performer isn’ t entirely engaged. ”

She continued: “ It’ s also about professionalism and trust. It’ s all good to love what you do and to be passionate about it, but you also have to turn up on time, be prepared, get there with the correct wardrobe and be pleasant and patient in set. You have to conduct yourself in a way that is appropriate. Having respect for everyone on set is important, from the director and camera operators to the make-up artists and production assistants. You may be a great performer, but if you are difficult to have in set, people won’ to want to book you or work with you. ”

Hearing this, I’ meters reminded that most jobs require you to be this way to be successful and maybe the adult industry is usually not as different as persons think.

Although how lucrative can employed in the adult industry get? “ Average pay is hard to gauge, ” White said.

She reports the average rate for a feminine performer is between $1260-$1500 for a hardcore boy/girl field, which would take any where from half to a full day to shoot. She said there are female performers that get paid far more.

“ My scenes from $1900. But that amount does not include anal. Anal needs more preparation and thus even more labour time so you can find an additional cost. My amount for anal starts by $2500 and goes up if this includes double penetration. The more complex the act and the more people involved, the more expensive my rate will be. ”

Getting into the industry wasn’ t hanging around for White.

“ I was very intimate growing up, and I was criticised for the way that I expressed my sexuality.

“ I was teased and called a slut and a lesbian at age 14. I was called a ‘ lemon’ (nickname for lesbian) together lemons thrown at me. It wasn’ t simply verbal but physical too. I was punched in the face pertaining to expressing my sexuality, ” she said.

“ I grew up just before Instagram, before the ‘ thick’ trend existed (a word commonly used in America to describe well formed women). I read Junk and Girlfriend and watched TV and never saw my body represented in a positive light in mainstream media. As i was introduced to pornography, I just finally found women with my body type celebrated and sexualised. I saw porn as being a space where I could share and explore my sex, and have my sexuality celebrated rather than criticised. ”

She worked when she was of legal age.

“ My first shoot was for a magazine called Voluptuous. I was treated like a princess and my curves had been finally celebrated. They released images of natural breasts that hang. We are accustomed to seeing enhanced knockers that large breasts that slope are considered saggy. However the editors at Voluptuous seen by them lovingly as hangers and referred to stretch marks as beauty marks. It was an optimistic experience for me to have my body held up as desirable which was counter to what mainstream advertising deemed sexy. ”

But White confesses going into porn is a long way to look for body positivity.

“ There may well have been other ways to express my sexuality, although I couldn’ t discover them. Porn was the first place I saw my body represented positively. Porn was the first space where I saw people being celebrated for having sex with multiple people of changing genders. When I started executing, I finally found an area where I could pursue my passion with like-minded, sex-positive peers. I feel like I just belong in the adult sector. I work with people that think about sex, sexuality and lovemaking creativity in the same way that I perform. I can’ t look at anything else quite like porn for me. ”

Being at a porn conference and seeing all different types of bodies, I was curious at the sight of pubic hair, something various think is a requirement in the marketplace to take off.

White had a lot to convey on the matter.

“ You don’ big t have to have a bikini polish, but you to do have to have good hygiene and be well-groomed. In porn, the bush is back. Most girls that have pubic curly hair will trim underneath, around the outer labia, so that the camera can see everything. But it’ s not a requirement to shave or wax. A lot of movies these days celebrate the bush, and then for those movies, directors will be needing you to grow your bush to become cast. But in the end, cleanliness is far more important than just how much or how little pubic hair you have. Performers need to be very aware of their own flavor and smell. What you eat and even what you wear may impact your vaginal flora. Many female performers consider probiotics to replace the good bacterias they wash away resulting from frequent douching. ”

There is of course a downside to this industry and the stars themselves are the best people to explain this.

“ I know that the porno industry has been criticised meant for allegedly trying to promote their product to people under the regarding 18, ” she stated.

While she has enjoyed the body positivity of working as a porn celebrity, Angela White admits there’ s personal downsides to the industry, including regular discrimination.

“ But that is a belief. We want paying customers — this is a business for us. Persons under the age of 18 can’ sex za fre t get credit cards, that they can’ t pay for adult porn.

“ This myth also suggests that the ones in the porn industry don’ t have a code of ethics. It’ h as though people think that since we do porn our company is terrible people who don’ t care about the welfare of young teens and kids. That’ s absolutely untrue. It’ s called the adult entertainment industry. It’ t entertainment created by and then for adults.

“ This is not for young people who also haven’ t had sex before. This is not how you should learn about sex. That is like watching The Fast And The Furious to learn how to get. The stunts done in The Fast And The Furious are executed by trained professionals in safe and controlled surroundings. Just like in porn.

“ We are pros working in a safe and directed environment. This is not how individuals have sex at home. Sure, there are several scenes that are closer to what folks are doing at home. But people are not seeing the preparing and the cuts for lube. It is a product and it is edited. ”

For the fear that porn achievement kinkier and influencing these kinds of acts to be done in our very own bedrooms, White said: “ I disagree with the idea that there has been a steady, uninterrupted advancement to harder and kinkier scenes.

“ Porn, like any industry, goes thru trends. During the early 2000s ‘ gonzo porn’ (a genre that got thier name from Gonzo journalism, a mode that breaks the fourth wall) was king and abrasive scenes were common, but by the late noughties, the pendulum had begun to swing towards more motion picture and romantic, ‘ couples-friendly’ porn.

“ But there is a problem with the definition of ‘ couples friendly’ because obviously some couples just like kinkier, harder, rougher stuff too. There’ s also other movements within porno, like the feminist porn activity, or the alt-porn movement developed by people such as Joanna Angel, that have proliferated with the rise of the internet. It’ s not a simple advancement to harder and harder scenes. It’ s like fashion. Some trend will become popular so people start to produce it. ”

But White admits that the adult industry is not for everyone.

“ For people like me, it’ s an optimistic place where I can share my sexuality and I could be myself. But performers experience a lot of stereotyping and stigma as a result of being linked to this industry so I wouldn’ t recommend it to anyone who isn’ t prepared to experience that negativity.

“ Performers deal with issues with trolls and established on social media, institutionalised elegance when applying for bank accounts and loans, and their profession can also be used against them in custody battles. Performing in porn can also exacerbate pre-existing mental health issues. The pressure of being in the limelight and being ‘ on’ 24/7 on social media is a lot to handle. ”

Angela White might not be an Australian household name like Margot Robbie, but she is worshipped in many bedrooms across our region. She is our hidden All the star. Should we think virtually any less of her since she uses her whole and bare body to get entertainment or take a moment in order to only learn from her but celebrate her success?
