Adult film star Angela White could soon turn her back on the porn industry after appearing in more than 900 hardcore scenes.
After several high-profile TV and podcast appearances, White seems to be angling for a career in mainstream media or academia. She hinted at her future career path last week when she spoke at a conference at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Angela posed for a photo on Instagram on Friday next to social sciences and media studies professor Constance Penley. ‘Academic pursuit remains an interest of mine and something I wish to return to in the future,’ she wrote in the caption.
During the college lecture, Angela spoke to film studies students about her career. Not only does Angela have an extensive body of work in adult cinema, but she also holds a degree in gender studies from the prestigious University of Melbourne.
The performer, who popularised the sex position ‘The Angela’, took part in a question and answer session with students after her speech. This is my third time as a guest speaker at this film studies class that approaches pornography as worthy of serious inquiry as a genre and as popular culture,’ she said after the lecture.
