The World of Angela White. Porn, Politics and Patriotism.

The World of Angela White. Porn, Politics and Patriotism.

 

As every Explicit fan, or should I say, every adult entertainment fan will know, Angela White is setting the industry ablaze with not just her scantily clad stills and photos, or her brilliant, yet sexy films that showcase the beauty and power of the girl/girl performer. No, she is also a very well rounded woman, who, in case you did not know, is sparking change in her native Australia like few performers ever have.

I can tell you Explicit fans, that researching this beautiful woman and sitting down for an interview with her was something mind blowing. She not only showed me a very deep intelligence that goes along with our monthly theme in September, she also showed me this face of feminism and how it’s reach goes beyond politics and tackles some amazing issues that go beyond, such as  gender equality and global poverty. Believe it or not, Angela has indeed become the “rebel” of the adult industry and in terms of the way some our great heroes of the past fought for something that was/is bigger than they are. Angela White hales from one of the most beautiful and mysterious continents. Her native Australia has had a deep root of censorship and reform that has gripped adult productions in the “land down under” for as long as I can remember. That ladies and gents is what we wish to showcase to you the fan. An amazing look at a woman who will go down in this industries history as not just someone who was a beautiful face and a successful business woman but also a saving grace for an industry that is in desperate need of a leader to show it’s critics that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the adult industry.

If you were to follow Angela on twitter, which if you do not, it would be a good idea to do that now! Her twitter is @ANGELAWHITE But what you will be in store for, is a performer and entrepreneur who gives the most gracious of tidings to every single one of her fans. Add in, she also cherishes every opportunity to show others in the industry, an insight that simply can not be found in any book or manual. One of the things I looked forward to when interviewing her, was simply getting to see things through her eyes and finding out how such an enthusiastic performer could be so down to earth?

Beginning in the grand year of 2003, the world was introduced to miss Angela White in the most blunt of ways, by having her bare all in adult films, indeed turning fantasy to reality for many people. It was at that time critics and fans alike began to see something very extraordinary in her performances. No matter if it were a solo film, or something as kinky as an all girl orgy, Angela showcased something I do not think the Australian public was ready for. It was through this enthusiasm that Angela was given a chance to showcase an even more beautiful side of herself. She appeared in an amazing comedy series in Australia called Pizza, which was ranked as one of the most popular shows in SBS history, an Australian television network and boy,  oh boy do we ever know why. She used her strength in acting and her charisma as a well spoken, educated women to earn more and more interviews with some very large print magazines. She was even featured on the pages of such wonderful publications as Cosmopolitan and Beat. Needless to say, she still graced the pages of worldwide powerhouse Penthouse, all while showing off her other amazing skills to the “mainstream” press.

With those accolades it is easy to see why Angela became the face of Sexpo, the largest adult entertainment event in Australia. I myself have seen so many promotional flyers featuring her gorgeous kisser and it is such a wonderful thing to see the reach of adult entertainment stretch as far as the “Dark Continent” and Australia. Porn deserves a voice and presence there more than any other. I think if there is one thing I would wish this article to say to the public, to both fans and critics, it is that adult entertainment, porn, or what ever you wish to call it, is not s bad as it seems. As a matter of fact, the good it brings to any society is something that is never measured but is always seen in many different ways. Any fan who has been to an adult convention knows this. Porn is a meeting of like minded souls, a way for people to endulge in something that should never be taboo but is, …..sex. No matter the angle, exotic dancer, adult actor, cam girl, erotic writer or novelist, the bottom line of every single aspect of this business and the above mentioned professions of it, is that it is about beauty, love, passion, sexuality and a yearning for it. It is in these regards that I wish to open the eyes of others and show in this article just how much Angela has fought for those who work in the industry we love.

I myself find that the thing that fascinates both critics and fans the most when they meet the starlets of the industry, is that they are real people, they just really enjoy sex. Never has that been so true, than with Angela White. Her actions to help her fellow Aussie performers is nothing short of revolutionary in it’s truest form.  Revolution is all about change and I think the one thing Angela would want to see more so than anything is gender equality. Herself having a degree in Gender Studies just shows the amazing detail this woman has for all that she peruses in life. I think it says a lot that a woman fights for something that so few women have, in an industry that truly showcases women the way ours does. Yes, the critics have some kind of argument when they say we watch porn for a woman’s beauty. Needless to say, these are models that make every fans dream come true but what the critics do not know, is that these women work their assess off to achieve such success. Angela White is a shining star of knowledge and thought when it comes to a female success story and I don’t just mean in the adult industry. She was motivated after a year of study following her bachelors degree from The University of Melbourne, to partake in the political aspect of the world. She spent a year in Paris, France, studying political science, something this William & Mary Alum will tell you, is not easy.

If that was not enough, she took her accumulated knowledge and ran for office under the Australian Sex Party in 2010. Her motivation? Fighting for the rights of sex workers. Something that is a world wide issue and something that so many people in the “real” world look past, despite the fact that they consume most of the product that is made in the adult industry. It is a selfless act like that which begun to generate heat and scrutiny from the Attorney General. It was one of the boldest political moves I have ever seen which followed. She began to send copies of her films to the attorney, in order to continue to keep the regulations on X-Rated productions from fully destroying something that so many people wanted. It is that type of bold, stylized action that has always brought our eyes and our minds keenly looking upon miss White. The world of politics is something few have the guts to partake in and it is that strength that has always defined Angela White. When you take a look at any scene she has shot, any interview she has bared her soul in, she never pulls any punches, she never takes or listens to the critics who tell her: going down a certain path or following a certain star is negligent or impossible. So many of us forget that the people behind the “character” in the adult world live in the same world we do and this gal made a big mark in it with that move.

To add a creme De la creme to her political indulgence, she actually shot a girl-girl scene with another Australian Candidate Zahra Stardust, something to which every person was not only left only drooling, they were indeed stunned in a good way, to see her continued outpouring of support for her fellow sex workers and industry.

When you stop to think about were the woman has taken her career, many would think that would be were she stopped reaching for the stars. Not so fast, before anyone could blink Angela was back on the scene, showing everyone who may have thought she was done, by supersizing us all,  by earning a 2016 AVN award for Best All-Girl Movie and Scene. If that was not enough, she earned another for Best Oral, which showcased her ability to reach all people, in all genres. To this critics delight, she won our coveted XRCO award for best Gonzo Movie. All of which were products of her amazing company AGW Productions. A company that is simply doing things the way they should be done in the adult industry. She features stars that have been there and done that, like Alexis Texas and Annika Albrite but she also keeps her home grown beauties in the fold as well. I do not think I have ever seen a company that mixes things so well as AGW does. She never forgets about her fans loves, she does not go in one category or genre and leave the rest helplessly floating in a sea of uncertainty, she loves boy-girl as much as girl-girl. She loves oral as much as she does toy play. She keeps us on the edge of our seat always. It was from that and everything she has accomplished, that she was finally given a proper thank you when she won the X-BIZ award for Foreign Female Performer of the Year. That my dear readers, is something simply astronomical giving how many women are in the adult industry world wide. Here in the states, we sometimes forget about those regions outside of our boarders. We tend to only see what is in our own back yards. As we begin our own steps into uncharted waters with unions, the rights of sex workers and the equality of women, we will see that Angela already has a leg up on what we will soon face. I for one, hope that we see that the examples that performers like her have left for us to learn from,  and become things we champion and simply do not look past or take for granted.

As the day goes on that porn continues to become more apart of pop culture, we simply have to ask ourselves what do we want out of porn in the near future? Virtual reality is on the horizon in a big way, the internet is becoming king, as DVD and Blu-Ray begin their descent into the realm of history and what was. In an industry that generates billions and billions of dollars world wide, it is hard to see so much scrutiny always placed upon it, especially with the performer. The adult performer is sometimes forced to bottle up everything they are in order to simply just make a living and put a roof over their heads. Yes, it is true that most people only last a few years in this industry but it is not for the reason that the critics think. It is because “porn stars” are people just like each and every one of you reading this article. They are students who go to school and look to pay off their ridiculous college tuition bills by dancing in a gentleman’s club, or by answering an ad to be a model in an adult film. When you have a college bill that hits 200,000 plus dollars it makes sense to me for a person who has the ability to find a job where they can make 25,000 a month if they bust their ass and do things right to jump at that opportunity. Those are people that should be rewarded, not punished. After those performers have paid their debts and they have made a lot of extra money to take the first step in the rest of their lives, they leave the industry and begin that new journey in life. But those are the stories you do not hear about in the adult industry. Those women are simply forgotten and thought of as just a flash in the pan, or a one hit wonder. Those are the women who had amazing experiences in the industry, met many life long friends in the industry and used the knowledge gained making adult films to continue a success that is never taught in the “real world.”

Not many people care to know that about our industry and many fans simply are kept in the dark forever about it. I think Angela would be the first to tell you, those are the stories that motivate her to continue to fight for the things she does. It is that fight that earned her this insight because most people believe that all writing, all promotion in the industry is simply about showcasing a woman’s derriere, when the truth is, most companies look to showcase their true assets, their minds and personalities. That is why every film comes with a behind the scenes, why every film comes with a look into who these women are, because any director will tell you, the adult performer is truly the pinnacle of professionalism in the adult industry. They are the top of the top, the best of the best. They have made their way their up through hard work and determination, just like everyone else who has been blessed and was bold enough to answer the knock at the door when opportunity came. Angela recently added a flesh light into her growing portfolio of amazing accomplishments in the industry. To me, That one portion of the things she has done, outshines everything else. Very, very few women have had the honor to become a part of the industry that way. When I asked her what that was like, she simply could not stop showing her gratitude for that distinguished honor. But if you were to ask me something I would gamble on, it would be that I would wage all my earnings and accomplishments personally, to say her most honored accomplishment, was probably being able to shed some light on what this industry means to a woman and to be that sexy and selfless role model who is truly recognized for being a successful woman. I like to ask each performer I interview: How has this industry shaped you as an independent woman? The reason I do, is because this industry has that ability. If the performer chooses to listen to her peers, see how much of an opportunity it is to get paid to do what you love and follow the road to further success, they will see that the industry has that potential. It is then that I think the critics will begin to see how wrong they are about the adult industry. They will see that this industry gives women who march to beat of a different drum, the chance to have every opportunity to achieve success as the next woman in line at Starbucks. That is the truth and I think that is something our critics fear the most, for once they begin to see the continued success of women like Angela White and the togetherness she brings to her fellow performers and the fight she stakes for their rights as well as the fans right to watch what ever type of film they wish to, only then will they see that they were wrong in every assumption they had about women and the adult entertainment industry.

I have been in the adult industry since I was indeed a young history major out of college. I attended a "Public Ivy" located in Williamsburg, Virginia. I have a multiple degrees & certificates including one in graphic design that led me to this wonderful and amazing industry. I started as just a lowly consultant for a design firm in Los Angeles that led me to introductions with some amazing people in the adult film industry and the rest is history. I have fulfilled work and helped to write publications for some of the biggest names in music, sports and film but my passion, the place where I truly call "home" because it is where the heart is, lies within the adult entertainment industry. I am an XRCO Member and I always like to say the art of making "fantasy become reality" is indeed something that takes the effort of many people, from all likes & spectrums of this amazing world. It is indeed those people and the fans of this industry that drive me to always show the beautiful amazing side of this industry few know but many dream about.
