A mother who has left her sexless marriage to become one of Australia's best-known feminist pornography icons is to shine in her own documentary.
Morgana Muses, 54, appears next month in the movie entitled & # 39; Morgana & # 39; at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
The documentary follows her journey from bored housewife in Albury, in NSW, to a porn icon.
& # 39; Becoming a woman and mother was considered the ultimate achievement for a woman & # 39 ;, she wrote about her website.

Mrs. Muses says where she lived, sex was never discussed and it was assumed that it would only happen in a marriage.
& # 39; It didn't work that way for me & # 39 ;, she said.
At the age of 45, Mrs. Muses decided to leave her marriage and only two years later decided to go on a journey of & # 39; sexual exploration & # 39; and learn to make.
& # 39; I just discovered that once I reached a certain age and was once married and had children that I expected to fade into the background and not be able to examine my desires, & # 39 ; Muses said ABC.
& # 39; It was as if all of these expectations, desires, and feelings for research that were deep within me were all just obvious. & # 39;

Mrs. Muses naturally said she was a & # 39; shy and private person & # 39; and never thought she would work in the adult industry
Ms. Muses also investigated the work of porn maker Petra Joy and decided to pursue ambitions to become an adult film star.
& # 39; I immediately felt that Petra was a like-minded spirit who urged me to let go of my past and give me permission to let my voice be heard screaming to be heard & she said.
Mrs. Muses approached her escort and agreed to make a short film with her for the 2012 Petra Joy Award.
& # 39; The movie idea I had was to introduce myself to the presentation of our first & # 39; date & # 39;, & # 39; she said Tattoodo.
& # 39; The escort agreed and the movie & # 39; Duty Bound & # 39; "would eventually become the ultimate and unanimous winner of the prize."
Ms. Muses wanted to continue her business in the adult film industry and decided to tell her family.

The film star has two daughters and decides to tell her oldest about her new career when she was 16 years old.
Mrs. Muses said she had her daughter in & # 39; age-appropriate language & # 39; explained what she wanted to do with her life.
She said, "I have three questions: can you make money, will you be happy? And the third was not to tell me the details," she said.
Muses' film career as a director, writer, producer and performer has since skyrocketed.
After & # 39; Duty Bound & # 39; was made, she worked with Anna Brownfield and Sensate Films, and she filmed her films on Cinekink at the Berlin Porn Film Festival in 2013 and 2014.
She moved to Berlin in 2015 and won the best short documentary at Cinekink for her short film & # 39; It & # 39; s My Birthday and I & # 39; l Fly if I Want To & # 39 ;.
The film was about the 50th birthday gift from Ms Muses and she continued to win the 2015 Heart Throb at the Feminist Porn Awards.
A documentary about the life of Mrs. Muses will make its debut at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 16.

The film, directed by Isabelle Peppard and Josie Hess, explores the life of Mrs. Muses from & # 39; boring domesticity to erotic filmmaking & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Morgana embodied the idea that you are never too old to start over & # 39 ;, says the movie description.
& # 39; Her reinvention began with a rendezvous with a male escort, and then evolved into a thriving career as a sex-positive, age-positive, pioneering pornographer. & # 39;
& # 39; In a documentary as vivid as the subject, co-directors Peppard and Hess Morgana celebrate lifelike calling and the intimacy and community she found along the way – as well as her astute ability to dismantle stereotypes, and the catharsis she discovers by forging her own unconventional path. & # 39;
