note: this is one of my earlier postings that I lost a while back but was able to find in my collection. 

Lately I have been getting a lot of emails from readers asking me how they can get into the adult industry as a porn actor/model.

Considering that I am NOT either of those, I do have relationships with a lot of porn actors and studios, who have provided basic knowledge and tools of how one can break into the industry.

Most guys think that being a porn ‘star’ is making a couple of movies and traveling the country, making appearances at the hottest clubs and pride events. You get to have sex with hot guys, make a lot of money and everybody will know your name. While some of it is true, that is not all of it.

I am sure you know this by now but I will say it anyway. Whether you are featured in one scene or a thousand scenes, once it’s out there in cyberspace, you can’t get rid of it. Even when you are dead and gone, your ‘work’ will be out there. There is a possibility that your family and friends ( potential employer) will find you online or hear about it from the streets. Dating and being in the industry as a porn model/actor is extremely difficult.

Aside from that many people get into the industry for many different reason. Some do it as a means to make quick money to pay off debts or simple to survive. Others do it to satisfy their personal fantasy (ie high sex drive, exhibitionist).

There are many pitfalls and vultures out there. If I had a penny for every horror story that I have heard, I would be having lunch with Bill Gates! There are a lot of scam artists out there, who will promise to make you a star! There are studios out there, who will use you up to spit you out. Some studios won’t even test their models, which leads you vulnerable to contracting all types of STDs and HIV/AIDS.

Drugs and alcohol often go hand in hand with the porn industry. Many actors use drugs as a way to cope with stress of the business and for comfort on set. It’s not uncommon to see your favorite porn ‘star’ smoking a joint laced with Tina (crystal meth) or cocaine, while drink a fifth of hard booze. I would advise you to abstain and stay far away from that (although it’s difficult.) Some of your favorite stars are strung out on drugs and homeless. You would never know it when you see them on film.

Pornographic performers and adult industry workers also engage in prostitution through escort agencies and personal ads. In between shoots, they rely on this type of work to make extra money (most of the time with ‘fans’). Aside from escort work, they do work the club scenes and pride events making appearances which sometimes includes exotic dancing (or go-go dancing.) Some participate in live sex shows in private clubs.

The biggest factor to take in consideration is that this ‘lifestyle’ is not always glamorous. Like anyone,who is in the public eye, you are subject to 'criticism' and people all in your business. This business is NOT for weak and sensitive.

Furthermore, it is important to professional at ALL times! You don’t want to be the subject of gossip on the blogs and blacklisted in the industry.

Again, this industry is NOT for the weak and timid!

Now if you are STILL interested, read on…

Picking A Name. This is very important (although some porn stars go by many alias depending on what studio they are signed with.) Pick something is unique but easy to spell and remember! Be original. Be creative! Once you become established, get the  name trademarked.



Get in shape. Porn, and even more so, gay porn is all about image. Although there are exceptions, you will have a tough time making it in the industry if you are flabby. Pragmatically, less fat means that your penis will seem larger. Not only that, but it takes a great amount of stamina to do a full scene. Sexual performance is linked with overall physical health.



Audition. This is the moment of truth. Will you freeze? Or will you perform? Look for ads advertising male adult stars. In most cases, you will have to move to the pornography capital of the world, Los Angeles. If you are bound and determined to make it in this field, then by all means move there. However, most budding stars choose to start with just an audition, and then, pending their acceptance, move to the area. (Keep in mind, there are plenty of studios here in Atlanta as well in Miami, New York!)



Get an agent. If you pass your audition, you will want a professional to represent you in your field. He will make sure that you get the best deal, and will be your best guide to the adult industry. Ask for his bona fides, a list of all the things his clients have accomplished, before you select an agent.



Perform, and never stop moving upward. To make the big bucks as a gay porn actor, you have to be prolific and a great actor. Don’t tire yourself out, but don’t take too many days off. Ask your co-workers for advice and constructive criticism. The only way you are going to be the best is by practicing and by constantly re-evaluating yourself. Surround yourself with people, who are able to take you higher and not bring you down.

RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH

Do your homework. Having an agent helps with that. Get the dirt on the studios you are interested in working with. Contact models, who have work with those studios. Make sure that you have a lawyer or someone who can give you legal advice. They are essential when you need help reading over a contract. NEVER SIGN A CONTRACT without fully understanding what you are signing!

Depending on your look, talents and limitations is a result on how much you will be paid. Most times, you are paid a certain amount per scene and that is about it. Make sure that over time , you will receive residuals (royalties)! This basically means that you will receive money even when you retire.

The rights will tend to be owned by either the photographer or the studio. Big enough stars may get contracts where they get royalties but that tends to only happen if they’re partners in the production company. Tiger Tyson is a great example of this! In 2000, he form his own production company, Tiger Tyson Productions. He announced his retirement in 2004, but again changed his mind after the success of Take ‘Em Down. Tyson was a co-founder of Pitbull Productions in 2003!

Porn stars are no different from other celebrities who make large amounts of money and squander their earnings away with only God knows what, to include shady deals, living outside their means, and racking up more debt than they can handle.

ADULT BLOGGERS ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND!!!!

We bloggers can be your best friend or your WORST enemy. I have great relationships with porn actors and studios (Shout to out to my STARS!)…

…and then there are certain actors/studios, who I will never feature on The Luckey Star. I wouldn’t refer my worst enemy to some of these studios. I could write a book and spill tea on some of these shady studios. The actors that no one want to hire. The ‘CEOs’ who sleep with their models (sometimes infecting them and turning them out to drugs and prostitution.) I could go on and on.

Be professional at all times and reach out to the adult bloggers out there! Become their best friend. They will keep you relevant!

Here are some tips for your audition:

Hydrate. You will be performing under lights, and will need to be at your top physical condition. Brink a water bottle to the shoot.

Relax. Take a minute before your performance, close your eyes and count backwards from 10. It’s just like any other day.

Juice. Some men choose to take Viagra before a shoot. This may be the best bet if your little guy gets nervous.

Do you have what it takes to be a porn star in the lower regions? Face it, if the porn industry was taking anyone who wanted to join the market would be saturated with good looking guys with average sized or below average sized penises.

Determine if you can stay erect for long periods of time? This is very important since it can take several hours to shoot a basic scene. Not to mention you will have to perform in front of multiple people, actors and crew members alike.

Can you deal with the possibilities of putting your own money up front? Many times locations of the shoots will not be in your town, a lot of companies do not pay for airfare, hotels, rental cars or food. You may need money on hand to cover your costs prior to getting paid or hitting it big enough that you’re in demand and having this things paid for.

Finding jobs. There are many sites online that are made basically to find adult type job listings. Jobs are also listed on classifieds sites under employment because working in the adult industry is a legitimate job. There are also several publications that are geared towards the adult industry that have casting calls listed in the backs of the magazines.

Having what it takes while the camera is rolling. If you are camera-shy becoming a porn actor may not be the idea job for you. Deciding to become a porn actor requires one to be very comfortable in front of the camera.

Understand that 30 mins what you see on film, is compiled of hours footage. Can you take breaks and maintain your momentum? Perform under hot lights and some random actor (unless you have seniority you don’t get to pick your partners)

Deciding on your limitations. Becoming a porn actor will test your limitation levels. Decide early on if you are willing to perform only heterosexual sex acts, bisexual sex acts or gay sex acts. All these options will put to any male looking to break into porn.

Porn is great in the fact that you don’t have to have the perfect body to do it. Everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to what turns them on. So let us look at the fetish angle. Are you over weight? You can still do porn for a producer who is making a fetish movie and needs someone over weight. Are you really hairy? Try to break into porn with the hairy fetish. A lot of what you find you don’t like about your body can be used to your advantage when it comes to porn. With this said if you are still interested in breaking into porn then read on.

Understand that you are creating a fantasy. No one wants to find out that his masculine butch kat is really a twirling messy queen. Keeping a low profile is the best way to avoid all of that.

Here’s is an example of what NOT to do!

Amateur porn producers will sometimes list an up coming job on the forum looking for a model. Look around these forums and when you find a producer you think you might be able to work with contact this person. Have pictures available to send them as they are going to want to see what you look like. Be up front and honest with your limits. This is very important.

If you have any limits that you find you will not bend on then make sure to include these in your initial contact with the producer. Let the producer know that you will not bend on these and then stick to it. Limits include not doing anything without a condom, no anal, no bondage ect.. These limits need to be what you are personally comfortable doing and not doing.

Some amateur producers either want just regular pictures of you that you can have taken at home or they will want more professional pictures of you. If you do not have money to get these done, you can still get professional pictures taken for free. In the modeling world these types of pictures are known as trade for pics or TFP. In a trade for pics exchange the photographer will take pictures of you for free that you can use in your portfolio. They will then use your pictures to enhance their portfolio. It is a win-win situation. A lot of these photographers will list themselves in the modeling forums also.

Once you have a producer wanting to work with you there are some precautions that you need to take. Tell the producer that you will be bring a chaperone along with you. A decent producer will have no problem with this. So if the producer tries telling you that it is a closed set or anything else to discourage you from bringing a chaperone then do not work with this producer. A decent producer understands that a chaperone not only is there to protect you but also protects them. So only work with the ones that are happy to allow chaperones.

A word from the wise on this that you need to understand when getting into this. Make sure condoms are always used. If a producer says they do not use condoms then tell them no.

Amateur porn producers understand that you will be nervous and that it will take you time to warm up to doing this in front of a camera. Still you need to realize that this is a job and that you need to be professional in doing this. So try your best to maintain a professional attitude with the producer, camera crew and other actors .

Amateur porn producers network a lot with other producers. So if a producer that you have been working with invites you to a party, go with them. This will give you a great chance to be seen by other producers. Alcohol may be served at these events. With that said you need to refrain from drinking a whole lot. Grab a glass of champagne or wine and walk around with it. Sip on it occasionally but that should be all, it is mostly going to be in your hand to hold. You are there to be seen and to make an impression on other producers who will pay you greatly to be in one of their movies. By getting drunk you are likely to look unprofessional and make fool out of yourself.

The fastest, easiest way to get into the adult industry is by becoming a webcam performer. It is steady work and you set your own schedule so you have some income and schedule around auditions while you are building your adult portfolio.

Amateur porn seems to be on the rise. A lot of your favorite ‘stars’ where discovered on sites such as Xtube.com or Adultspace.com! I recommend this method because you are able to get honest opinions from the mass as well as build your fan base/clientele!

You also get to pick your own partner(s) which is rare when you are working under a studio.

Furthermore, you are able to price your own videos. It’s takes time (depending on your look/talent) but it’s well worth it.

The biggest advice I could give to one, who wants to get into the business, is to understand that it IS a business. Talent and looks alone will not get you far so it’s good to have good business sense.
