It’s not every day that an email arrives in your inbox asking if you’d like to go to lunch with a world-famous adult star. But last Tuesday that’s exactly what happened.
I was staring aimlessly into the abyss, wondering whether to commit to a new season of Real Housewives or stick with Vanderpump Rules when the invitation came.
It took me 0.03 seconds to respond with an “absolutely yes” to said lunch date before heading to a particularly salacious site in the name of “research.” How fun my job is.
I typed in Angela White and up came her subscription site that had a whopping 931,000 subscribers, which is nothing compared to the 9.9 million followers she has on Instagram.
While reviewing the videos, I found many preferences to choose from. Lesbian, group, solo, DP, threesomes and many more that are too bold to name here.

She was initially intimidated by the huge pocket rocket, but Angela, pictured, quickly put her at ease.
I am not going to lie; I was a little surprised. Here was a woman who was up for all kinds of things AND she was brave enough to film it. I suddenly felt very vanilla.
She seemed fierce, fabulous and responsible. I felt a little intimidated to meet her, but my curiosity far outweighed any hesitation to back out.
It turns out that I was nervous for nothing, because when I arrived I was greeted with a big warm hug from a tiny, pocket-sized woman, who was the same height as me – 5’3 – but with huge natural breasts that she highlighted. in a sexy all black outfit. She was quiet but she spoke with confidence and she was very feminine, with flawless skin, hair and makeup.
I admit I expected her to be a little harsh and defensive considering I was about to ask her some pretty deep questions about her chosen career path, but luckily she was charming and had a great sense of humor.
Jana said Angela was happy to talk about any topic, which made the girly chat delightful.
I knew we were in for some good girl talk at lunch.
We sat down to order and I quickly ordered a dirty gin martini and she orders water. It turns out that Angela doesn’t drink. Embarrassed, I must admit that my first thought was: ‘Well, how the hell does he get through his scenes?’
I quickly discovered that his work is a genuinely passionate project; In fact, he confessed that he knew he wanted to work in porn since he was 14 years old. Therefore, he does not need alcohol, only a healthy libido. Bravo, Angela, bravo!
For the next hour and a half, we enjoyed a delicious lunch and endless chat that left me a little in awe.
Here are eight facts I discovered over lunch that surprised me…
1. Their most popular content is called ‘Gonzo Scenes’.
It’s not a sexy name, but these are unscripted scenes that put the viewer in the image.
Thus, it could be filmed by one of the people involved in the scene with a handheld camera, or by a director who has also agreed to participate in the scene. She said “not necessarily sexually, but they might be asking the talent questions or telling them what to do, or sometimes they’re part of the scene.”
It comes from Gonzo journalism, which is a form of writing where they are part of the piece. He said it’s “the most natural, authentic and allows for the most chemistry.”
They met over lunch and talked in detail about the porn industry.
2. You can’t just move around on set and take off your gear.
Oh no. There is a long process that professional porn stars must go through before achieving the record. I found it fascinating.
First, the porn company will first contact your agent, who will then contact you and explain the shoot they want to achieve. She will have the script approved and then must sign a document that clearly describes what she will and will not do in a scene.
Then she has the approval of the talent that is in the scene with her and her clothing.
Once she’s on set, she and the other talent will sit down with a talent liaison officer and go over a “boundaries checklist” that once again outlines what they will and won’t do. There is also room for clarifications.
The list goes on and on. The talent liaison is also present on set to advocate for the rights of the performers. They will observe the entire scene and can intervene if necessary.
Angela said that there is also a lot of preparation for a sex scene and that there are some acts that she prefers to do with specific partners.
Angela revealed that the porn scenes last 30 minutes and are ‘a cardiovascular exercise’
3. The general rule is that a porn scene should be 30 minutes long.
Phew! Even though most people can’t last that long, the general rule of thumb for a porn movie is that it should be 30 minutes long. Angela admitted it’s the equivalent of a full cardio workout.
4. The secret to maintaining a loyal audience is to make it feel personal
He said that many reality stars go on Onlyfans and don’t last long because the viewer just wants to see them naked and then unsubscribe.
He said he maintains his audience through authenticity and engagement with fans, constantly responding to messages and taking note of comments.
Each month analyze the data and find out which videos were purchased the most.
Angela said that “threesomes are very popular, because for men that is their ultimate fantasy.”
5. Her most popular videos are how-to videos for women.
Yes, her female fan base is strong and women pay a lot to get videos of her.
‘I call them Jill-off instruction and women love it. “I actually use my flashlight, which is a mold of my own vagina, to show them how I like to be touched,” she said.
Instantly fascinated, I asked her how to make a flashlight and she explained, “There are people in the room waiting for you to get aroused before they paint a sticky substance on your vulva.”
“Now I have my own toy and it’s so fun because I can use it in my videos to show women (how I orgasm).”
I embarrassingly told her that I always assumed OnlyFans was created for men, but she said that some of their highest-paying audiences are women because they like more intimate videos.
“Women are sexual creatures and there is a real market for them,” he said.
Jana said she could never be a porn star
6. She is non-monogamous and polyamorous.
Angela said she has had a strong libido since her teenage years and likes to be open to all opportunities.
When I asked her how she manages to date multiple people, she said that most of them are fine with sharing her, but that doesn’t mean they want to do it too.
‘Sometimes that is because there is a difference in libido. I think whatever relationship dynamic works for you is the right one,” she said.
But for her right now, it’s ethically non-monogamous.
7. She credits the movie ‘American Pie’ for allowing her to never leave the industry.
Yes, Stifler’s mother has a lot to be thankful for! I asked Angela what would be next once she reached an age where she was “no longer viable” and I was pleasantly surprised by her response.
She explained that it is not possible to age out of the industry and stated that “older women are highly valued in the adult entertainment industry, and American Pie has a lot to do with that, calling it “the MILF revolution.”
She said: ‘Mature women have become a cultural phenomenon because they know what they want and are sexually experienced.
‘I think it’s positive because culturally there is a general thought that women lose their sexual attractiveness when they get older and that has changed a little. We are seeing it through downloads.”
8. The porn industry has strict rules about STD testing.
I had a theory that it’s probably safer to be a porn star than a single person in Sydney right now, and she completely agreed.
They have three different tests that must legally be done every 14 days.
“They test for everything and I overlap mine, so I get a test every 12 days,” she said.
‘The best thing about being in the industry is that we learn about new STDs before the general public. We know the latest science, the best ways to test, and the best treatment. So every 12 days I do tests: vaginal swabs, throat swabs, anal swabs and blood samples. We are always aware of this,’ he said.
He even showed me his latest results. She wastes no time when it comes to his health and safety.
I left lunch with a newfound respect for the industry and its work ethic. Here is a woman who found a career she was passionate about and turned it into a multi-million dollar business.
Is that something I could ever do? No. I tried to film myself with an ex once and seeing him back wasn’t pretty. Kudos to those who not only do it, but also make it look good. I would go so far as to say that it really is an art form.
