How to Penetrate the Porn Industry

So you’ve found that the 9 to 5 grind isn’t for you, and you want to venture into other realms. You’ve tried your hand at different professions, but they just don’t seem to fit. So you sit and create an emotional inventory of what you would like to do. You like to show off, and you love to have people admire you. You also like to film yourself having sex, so I have a profession that would fit you like a (love) glove. This how to penetrate the porn industry. Bow chiki bow wow

Be 18 or Over

This is pretty straight forward; you need to be of legal consenting age to be a porn star.

You Don’t have to be in Front of the Camera

 

Porn is a $10 to $14 billion dollar industry. An industry of such scale needs legal, marketing and administrative staff to run. Just a quick search on Google, (SafeSearch enabled) revealed postings asking for Sales Managers, Copywriters and Industry Marketing Managers. Some performers make the jump from in front of the lens to the behind it. I’m not saying they have sex with the crew, but they can become directors later on in their career. Also ‘Porn Accountant’ sounds so much more fun than plain old accountant right?

You Still Want to Do the Vertical Mambo for Money

 

If you’re still determined to be a performer, here’s a few ways. Mainstream porn generally works like a job for any other performer; you need to audition. Of course, the audition concentrates on what you will be doing if you get the job which is, doing it. Another way to get your foot (and other parts of your anatomy) in the door, is to participate in a parallel event that can get you noticed. Actors have Shakespearean Theatre, porn actors have Bang-a-pallooza.

That’s so Mainstream

Although performing in mainstream porn comes with a big, long six digit paycheck, amateur porn comes with an open invitation for anyone with a camera and the need to do sexual acts in front of it. Eventually, this could help you push into the market for mainstream.

It Much Easier for Female Performers to Get Hired

Duh, do I even need to elaborate? I don’t. Moving on.

The Future

Although you might think porn is the carpet-burned bee’s knees now, in the short and unforeseeable future, your perspective might change. The thing is if a lawyer wants to quit and go back to school to study ceramics, the possibility that his professor might have seen him on all fours wearing ass-less leather chaps is minimal. You, on the other hand, have chosen a career that has documented you engage in some adult fun from every perceivable angle. Once you make a career out of it, there will be people that have a more intimate knowledge of what your undercarriage looks like than you.

There is a little hope

There are a few select instances of pornstar turned pretty successful mainstream actor and actresses. Sasha Grey (the Girlfriend Experience), Shu Qi (The Transporter) and Tyrion Lannister’s love interest from Game of Thrones Sibel Kekilli are just a few that moved onto the bigger and more silvery screens (I’m also going to assume less sticky floors).

After the Lube’s Worn Off

So you’ve had torrential success during your prosperous yet short career. Oh, yeah I forgot to mention above, porn careers are super short compared to other professions even the short lived careers within the field of other performing arts. But for arguments sake let’s just say you had a nice long and fulfilling career. What do you do afterwards? Well, the options span from real estate agent to activist. But remember that your unmentionables will be preserved for posterity in the 0s and 1s of the internet, for the rest of time or until the internet disappears (I’m betting that the internet beats out time, where the universe stops spinning, and the only thing that exists is Google and darkness).
