Angela White Interview
Angela White is a woman who knows what she wants and does it! Helen Reddy's song "I Am Woman" (Hear Me Roar) fits her to the tee. It's that confident attitude that made Angela create her own production company (AGW Entertainment) as well as become a very outspoken advocate for the rights of sex workers. Angela White deserves to be celebrated and it's great that her peers recognize her craft, ingenuity, and hard work. She has become a force in this industry in front of and behind the camera and there is no stopping her now.
Hi Angela, your film "Angela Loves Gonzo" is receiving much praise by critics and fans. How do you feel about these raving reviews and about the high probability of receiving loads of award nominations for your film and its performances?
I’m really happy that the movie is resonating with so many people. Every scene in Angela Loves Gonzo is different, ranging from rough to romantic, so there is something for everybody. It would be an honor if the film receives some nominations during the upcoming award season but I know there will be some tough competition. In the end, I’m just happy that fans are taking pleasure from my scenes and that I had so much fun making the movie.
Could you tell us about the concept of this movie and what you want people to know about it?
Releasing Angela Loves Gonzo was as much a political statement as it was another step in my sexual exploration through porn. The gonzo genre is often attacked for being the most “degrading” and “misogynistic” type of pornography. I wanted to release a movie that challenges the assumption that women cannot or should not enjoy rough sex. I also wanted to demonstrate that gonzo can be an effective genre for showcasing intimacy and authentic chemistry. By removing the camera crew, gonzo creates a space in which performers can interact in a more intimate setting allowing for a more honest and natural sexual exchange. It strips away the artifice so that we can focus on passionate and intense fucking!
Since we see you in a scene that involves ice cream, what is your favorite flavor?
I don’t discriminate. I love all ice cream equally. I also like to enhance my ice cream experience. I like to add a spoonful of peanut butter and Nutella or sprinkle on some M&Ms or smashed snickers bars. I also like to combine it with savory food. I love vanilla ice cream with bacon bits and French fries or putting a scoop on a steak or on top of deep fried chicken and waffles. I’m as adventurous with my food and as I am with sex.
At what age did you first learn that you could squirt?
Actually, the first time I ever squirted was on camera. I was 26 years old. It was in a scene with Ramon Nomar which was released in my showcase movie Angela Loves Men. The camera pans up to my face after it happens and you can see that I’m in shock. I had no idea I was able to squirt and I look completely amazed and disorientated. It’s one of my personal and career highlights.
Your production company AGW Entertainment has become very respected and successful quickly in an industry that is still referred to as "a man's world" in the corporate sense. What was your goal when you decided to make your own films and be your own boss?
I enjoyed shooting for other companies but I really wanted to bring my own fantasies to life. Establishing my own production company was the only way that I could have complete control over every aspect of filming. Now I get to choose everything from the location and wardrobe through to the talent and crew. I also edit all of my own DVDs so that even the smallest details are representative of my creative sexual vision. It’s a lot of work, but also a lot of fun and very rewarding.
How long have you been in the industry? How did you get into the adult industry?
I started as a girl-girl only performer with the Miami based SCORE Group in 2003. They specialize in big natural tits so I knew I was well-qualified when I applied to shoot for them. I had just turned 18-years-old and was still in high school when they flew me across the world for my first shoot.
A big reason why I enjoy your work so much is that you take a lot of pride in your work and thus, put forth one hundred percent. Have you always had that type of mindset even when you were younger and in school?
I believe that you should pour your heart and soul into your passion and that’s what I do. I don’t believe in making something “good enough”. I want everything that I do to be exceptional. I had the same attitude while I was studying at university and graduated with First Class Honours and a GPA of 4.0.
Your live webcam shows are hot and entertaining. You really enjoy turning on your fans. It shows on your face. What is it about performing live to them that gets you so turned on?
Doing live cam shows allows me to tap into my exhibitionist streak. I also love interacting with fans and it turns me on to hear about their fantasies. It often opens me up to new ideas for my scenes and my personal life.
What traits of a woman do you admire most? What makes a woman sexy?
I love strong, independent, sassy women. I think confidence is what makes somebody sexy regardless of their gender.
What traits of a man do you admire most? What makes a man sexy?
Confidence, but not too much cockiness. Too much cock is OK though, if there is such a thing.
I am very impressed in your political activism. Why did you become so political?
I was actually less interested in politics before I entered the adult industry. Being involved in an industry that is so heavily stigmatized and regulated forces you to become more aware of politics. It was a threat to the rights of sex workers in Australia that prompted me to run for political office in the 2010 Victorian State Election. The adult industry is being attacked from both sides of the political spectrum - from the conservative-religious right and the anti-porn feminist left - and everyone in the adult industry should have an awareness of their place within these debates.
What was the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry when you started?
I was surprised by how much the industry broadened my sexual horizon. I’ve learned a lot about my sexual preferences and fantasies from my exploration through porn.
How were you as a kid growing up?
I was quiet and studious until high school. Then my hormones kicked in and all I wanted to do was explore my sexuality with as many boys and girls as I could.
What is your shoe size?
I’m a US 6 and I have very sensitive toes and soles. My feet are small enough to fit almost entirely in someone’s mouth and it drives me crazy to have them played with.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I love to read and broaden my knowledge base. Sex is obviously a passion of mine so when I’m not doing it on camera I like to do it at home. And it’s another great thing to combine with ice cream!
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
I love being able to spend my life doing something that I love and knowing that in the process I am also bringing other people immense pleasure. It makes me feel like I’m making a difference when I can do something as small as assisting someone’s orgasm or as large as helping someone to feel more comfortable about expressing their own sexuality.
Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote? What are you currently working on film wise?
Fans should definitely check out my website angelawhite.com
if they haven't already. It has won the XBIZ award for Site of the Year - Performer two years running. After Angela Loves Women
, my lesbian showcase won the 2016 AVN award for Best All-Girl Movie, I had to bring out a sequel. So my next movie is Angela Loves Women 2 which I just finished editing and will be hitting the shelves shortly. It's an all-star cast with Carter Cruise, Lexi Belle, A.J. Applegate, and Remy LaCroix so it's a highly anticipated release. Fans can check out the trailer here: dvd.angelawhite.com/aw007-angela-loves-women-2-dvd/
