Angela White Talks Porn vs. Erotica in Latest AE Podcast

“I think if you’re going to serve a dirty dish, you should serve it on a very clean plate.”

That’s one of Angela White‘s core philosophies, and you see it represented in every scene and movie she makes. The Australian superstar joins Adult Empire for the latest edition of the AE podcast, explaining exactly how she developed the signature modernist look of her AGW Entertainment movies.

“You’ll notice that my website is very cleanly designed – all white. There’s no flashing ‘join now’ logos or butterflies or bubbles,” White says in the interview. “A lot of porn websites will have a lot of distractions. I wanted to get rid of all of the distractions. I love minimalism. I love the way it showcases your content, because I think the content should speak for itself. It doesn’t need to have flashing lights or anything around it for it to sell.”

Though high-gloss porn like White’s is sometimes categorized as erotica rather than porn, White herself is reluctant to observe a distinction between the two. “I think those sorts of definitions and distinctions are really dangerous and they’re a slippery slope. Because most of the time the difference is lighting,” she notes. “Most of the time the arguments are classist, so a film with really high production value will be seen as more erotic than, say, Angela Loves Gonzo, which is raw, shot on a Handicam. For some reason, that scene is something that could be perceived as more exploitative than some high production value feature movie.”

“I also think it’s problematic because some of these arguments are made against perceived ‘violent porn,'” she continues. “And the examples that are often used will be kink scenes — scenes that involve BDSM — which can be quite spectacular in their use of whips and things that do bring about the physical sensation of pain . . . [and] also pleasure. But these are consensual scenes. These are all thought out – every act is agreed upon beforehand.”
