Anonymous asked: I don't know if you've answered this before but what are a list of things I should consider before pursuing a career in the adult industry? Both straight and gay, financially, physically. Just anything that could help. I wanted someone who had experience to answer this for me. Thanks :)
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’ve covered this same topic in previous posts. Still, it’s not too late to remind you, and all other new followers, that I was never a porn star. I didn’t work full time in the industry as a performer. I was simply a porn-shop clerk who did a handful of videos (12 scenes total) mostly as a joke, just to prove to the world, and to myself, that I could, and to have something funny/weird/awesome to write about.
Also, with the exception of one scene I shot for a major studio (but was never released) all the porn work I did was for a small-time website that was mainly a family business. So I have very little idea, from my own experience, of what is it like to work in the actual porn industry. Most of what I know is from meeting and interviewing a lot of famous porn stars.
That being said, I can tell you that as a man (which I assume you are too) it’s really difficult to get into this line of work. And even more difficult it is to make any decent money. The game is rigged in favor or current male performers and while it keeps a revolving door for new female starlets coming in and out of porn on a daily basis, they make it almost impossible for men.
It’s unfortunate, but that’s the way it is so, like I recommended already to some other follower, if you really wanna get into porn and you think you got what it takes but you don’t have any serious contacts in the industry, the best way is to become a producer and start your own company.
