Buckle up, mates, we’re heading Down Under! Or at least we’re about to learn a lot about this beautiful but mysterious area. Our sexy tour guide, award-winning adult-industry performer Charlie Forde, separates fact from fiction regarding her homeland.
Australia. The Land Down Under. Oz. The Kangaroo Kingdom. Call it what you want, we Americans by and large don’t know shit about it other than what we’ve learned from the Mad Max movie series or Olivia Newton-John records.
Charlie Forde is Australian. Forde, the recipient of the Best Female Newcomer Porn Star award at the recent 2021 Australian Adult Industry Awards, is also an adult-video performer, pole dancer, producer and all-around industry person. Who better to answer our burning questions about this mysterious land?
HUSTLERMagazine.com: What are some of the difficulties of producing adult content in Australia?
Charlie Forde: Very few companies feel comfortable shooting adult content in Australia because of our antiquated distribution laws—but you can shoot porn in Australia. I hope that larger companies will hire producers like myself who understand the laws to create amazing Australian [content]. Our country is too beautiful not to film, and our performers are too incredible not to hire.
What is a “bogan”?
A bogan is a “very Australian” person, someone that meets our global stereotype. When I imagine a bogan, I see someone with a very strong Australian country accent, a mullet haircut, someone who “crushes the cans” daily and hasn’t seen much of the world.
