The Neighbours bombshell, 30, is directing the steamy films for female-led erotic site, Afterglow.
She confirmed the controversial career move on Wednesday to Women’s Wear Daily, and stated that the films are a form of positive female acceptance.
Caitlin told the publication: “It's a queer-run and operated company. It's a very cool group of women making some very good stuff.”
The starlet explained that she was set to direct a number of films in February, but the Covid pandemic has made it a struggle.
She said: “We were all set to make several films in February, but things have gotten really, really dicey out [in L.A.].
“Making a regular film during Covid-19 is tough- making a pornographic film during Covid-19? Virtually impossible.”
The Afterglow site was founded last year and is aimed at and marketed towards women. The company is described as being all about pleasuring women and is a "sex positive, pleasure-focused platform".
One adult site reported that the creator of Afterglow, Lilly Sparks, started her business after realising there were limited resources that focused solely on women and pleasure.
Caitlin has spoken out previously about her support for female sexuality and body positivism. The babe has come under fire in the past for showcasing her pubic hair online and backing the #freethenipple campaign.
In 2016, she posted topless pictures on Instagram to protest against the social platform's strict no-nudity rules.
The actress is best known for playing Rachel Kinski in the long-running Aussie soap from 2005 and 2009.
She later starred as Kenna in Netflix classical drama, Reign, from 2013 to 2015.
Describing her sexuality as "mostly gay", Caitlin remains open to the fact she is "fluid”, having also dated men in the past.
The controversial Australian starlet previously campaigned for gender equality. She launched website, Herself.com, in 2015 in a bid to provide an area for women to discuss sex, relationships and feminism.
