How Does a Guy Become a Porn Star?

Prince Yahshua

Guys often ask me, “How can I get into the business?” There are many aspects to the porn business and I will assume that they are asking me how to become a male perform in the adult industry. Before I explain how to get into the business as a male performer, take a minute and ask yourself, “What is the role of a male performer?”. I’m willing to bet that most people will say, “To fuck female porn stars.” That’s a fair answer but not a good enough answer.

A male performer is really the person carrying the sex portion of a scene. He is the one that lets the female performer know what to do and when. You might say, you’re leading the dance. The director of the scene will typically let the performers know if there are any specific positions or phrases to use, as well as how long the scene must be. You might be told by the director, “I need 20 minutes of sex.” Twenty minutes of sex takes about 25 to 40 minutes of physical time depending on the skill of the talent, assuming no failures. A male performer that has never performed is not going to know the language and procedures to get the job done.

Another aspect of the male performer’s job is to be camera-aware and set-aware. This means that you must know what the camera is shooting and open the action for the camera. Don’t position the action in such a way that the camera is shooting people or objects off the set, hence, set-aware or situational awareness. All this must be done while keeping your penis hard and in a ready state to ejaculate when needed.

Now that you understand your role, I have two answers to the question, “How does a guy get into the porn business?” The easiest way is going through the ranks. Think of the cost a producer is paying to shoot a scene. If you fail, all that money was wasted. If the director realizes that you’re not strong enough to do or finish the scene and he must cancel, there will be about 3 to 12 people on the set ready to kick your ass because they will not be paid for the day and must waste their time coming back another day. If it’s early in the day and the director can get a replacement, you will do the walk of shame going out the door, #wannabepornstarfail.

Going through the ranks, you will start off as what is called a mope. A mope is guy that is deemed not ready to carry a one-on-one scene and work doing gang bangs. Gang bangs are easy because if you can’t perform, the other guys cover for you. If you show recognizable strength in a gang bang, the director will consider you for shoots with higher pay. If you’re the guy jerking his dick in the background most of the time, you probably will not be called back to shoot anything. If you’ve never performed before, no agency in their right mind will take you. Let your ego go and contact companies that produce gang bangs. It does not take very long to get out of mope status. The companies could be in your area or in the cities that are known for producing porn. Get in there and test your mettle. When you’re

In days gone by, another way to get into the business was to have a good looking female companion that would only work with you. Sure, you will get some work but the down side is that veteran directors know not to hire couples in any form. Inevitably, the guy not being strong enough, will experience some form of failure. When that happens, they tend to fight. He blames her for his troubles and it just becomes a bad day for everyone.

Attending industry events and trades shows to network is another method. You will need to be prepared as a professional with business cards and take names with email addresses. After the event, send an email with your physical stats, and comp card photos. Be aware, if you’re not in the area where you’re trying to work, you will not be called back. No one is going to plan a shoot around you visiting the area.

Those are some ways to get into the industry. However, once you’re in the industry, do you know the vocabulary and acronyms of the business? Do you know the procedures for health, safety, and testing? Are you comfortable having sex in front of many people? Can you keep your dick hard with someone constantly interrupting you, stopping, starting, while at the same time being camera and set-aware? Are you comfortable with doing anal and having the girl accidentally shit on you? Are you comfortable with having to eat pussy and fuck a girl while she is on her period? Know yourself, especially your limits. Things may not be as they seem.
