Sex Ed: State University Film Class Enjoys Instruction by Award-Winning Porn Star

College has substantially changed. For an easy example, look no further than a West Coast lecture.

Students at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) were recently served a titillating treat. Their Film Studies course welcomed Aussie Angela White to discuss the ins and outs of sophisticated cinema. It’s fitting that Angela comes from Down Under — she’s a porn star.

On Twitter, the esteemed actress crystallized her UCSB experience. Judging from a caboodle of kind words, White’s gratitude runs deep:

“Thank you, (Feminist Studies) Professor Constance Penley, for having me as a guest speaker at your groundbreaking course… This is my third time as a guest speaker at this Film Studies class that approaches p*rnography as worthy of serious inquiry as a genre and as popular culture.”

Angela expressed appreciation to “incredible students,” who offered “well-informed, thought-provoking questions about [her] career as a performer/director, [her] academic research, and [her] time in politics.”

The University of Melbourne honors graduate has indeed penetrated politics. As reported by The Sydney Morning Herald:

In the 2010 state election, (politician) Fiona Patten recruited White to stand as the Australian Sex Party candidate in the seat of (Melbourne suburb) Richmond. White, who won 2.9 percent of the vote, said her intention was not to win but to draw votes away from Greens candidate Kathleen Maltzahn.

At the time Maltzahn was advocating for the Swedish model of sex work legislation, which criminalizes the buyers of sex but not the sellers. The model has been criticized for driving sex work underground and making life more dangerous for sex workers.

Sex work — and sex generally — are prominently promoted at universities nationwide. It’s no longer solely an endeavor of souped-up students; when it comes to bow-chicka-wow-wow, administrations are outwardly enthused:

Angela apparently aims to inspire enrollees to consider carnal careers. Her personal success story certainly sticks out. Per the Daily Mail, it developed early:

The 37-year-old, who is famous for her natural 32GG breasts, is the most successful Aussie porn star of all time and one of the biggest names globally. …

[T]his week ahead of her appearance at Melbourne Sexpo, Angela opened up about everything from getting into the industry at age 18 to what men are doing wrong in the bedroom.

The Sydney-born beauty was promiscuous as a teenager and knew she wanted to get into the adult industry when she first discovered porn at the age of 14.

“[W]hen I saw that in porn I could be celebrated for being my true authentic self,” she told the Mail, “I was like, ‘This is what I need to be doing.'”

And now, she’s known as the “Meryl Streep of porn.”

Beyond acting and instructing, her career has tipped over into writing. More from Angela’s May 4th tweet:

“While it has been a number of years since my research dissertation was published in The Routledge Companion to Media, Sex, and Sexuality, academic pursuit remains an interest of mine and something I wish to return to in the future.”

Such is the life of a university lecturer, who might say if she didn’t do porn, she wouldn’t have squat. Thanks to pursuing her dream, now she’s loaded. As told to podcast I’ve Got News For You:

“I won’t even give you a ballpark [figure for how much I earn]. I will tell what — the numbers that are thrown around in the media are real, and I am in the top 0.01 percent.”

Fascinated film students can aspire to assume the same position — though some at UC Santa Barbara are surely already there: Out-of-state tuition is over $44,000. That massive amount buys brushes with the acclaimed and aristocratic. A picture of privilege is painted by the school’s Admissions Guide:

Our faculty includes six Nobel Prize winners, elected members of national and international academies and societies, winners of Guggenheim and Fulbright fellowships, and recipients of other highly acclaimed awards.

And among its distinguished speakers: an AVN (Adult Video News) Hall-of-Famer, AVN’s first three-time Female Performer of the Year, and the recipient of other honors best left unprinted.
