How do I get into porn?

10/31/2016

By Wendy Williams  

Multiple times a day since I got into the Adult industry more than 15 years ago, I get asked; "How can I get into porn?" So I thought I’d discuss the topic and pass on a few tips for those of you who want to show it off on camera for the ENTIRE world to see and judge.

Why are you doing it?

Most people think they are going to make a lot of money or become famous when they get into porn. However, both these goals are rare for many reasons. If you are a guy wanting to get into porn, you should be aware that the percentage of those making a successful career is slim to none, especially if you don't live in LA or Vegas. 

Financially, most guys make around $200-$500 for a scene, with any recognition coming much later in their careers, if at all. Yes, there are some guys making a lot more, but they are the guys with the 11" cocks, signed to a studio or who have been in the game for a long time. If you are looking to do it to just make some quick cash, then go for it, but remember, there are many, many guys trying to do the same thing and end up having to be in gang-bangs or “bukkake” scenes for a mere $100.

Do you have what it takes?

There are some guys in porn who aren't muscular and well-hung, but again, those are usually the guys filling a specific niche in the Industry. So be realistic and know that you need to have a decent body, a cock bigger than 7" and are able to stand around a bunch of people and stay hard and cum when asked to. Most times, you don't get to pick and choose, especially male talent, who you want to work with, and you are always at the director's mercy when it comes to the type of scenes you can do. Obviously, the more things you are OPEN to, the more work you’ll find. 

Always assume someone will find out!

Don't ever think that you can shoot a porn film and no one will ever find out – or think you can keep it hidden. If you are ashamed of what you’re doing or want to hide it because of family or a job, then you are setting yourself up for failure or other problems down the road. People will judge you and often “stereotype” you because of your work in porn, so you have to have a thick skin and a strong filter when it comes to what people think or know. I learned a long time ago to accept that I put myself out there so I must take the good and bad critiques. People will judge your looks, body, cock, tits, ass, voice, and anything else they can behind that keyboard! A THICK SKIN IS A MUST!

Some general tips
  • If you don't live in LA or Vegas, then start looking on the Internet to find a model close to you who has a solo website. Get in touch with the model through email and discuss doing a scene with her so you can start gaining experience and see whether or not you like doing porn. Once you have worked with someone who has a solo website, ask for referrals to other models so you can gain more work experience and start networking. Make sure you are approaching models who require industry testing and 2257 requirements. If they don't do either, then it’s NOT a good idea for you to get involved with them as they could turn out to be very bad experiences.
  • After you have a few scenes under your belt, whether amateur or professional, start applying to the mega websites you like. Many of these sites have a model application email or form you can fill out. Gaining more exposure and seeing how bigger companies work are imperative if you want to learn about the porn industry and see if it's worth all the work. Also, many of these website companies can refer you to both solo models and other Adult industry companies.
  • Attend industry events like AVN, XBIZ, EXXXOTICA, BBWcon, etc. Networking is the greatest resource there is. Being able to attend these events and ask questions is imperative. Once you are there, you’ll be able to meet models and producers of porn. Take some professional photos with you and a business card to pass out. The worst thing that can happen is that you won’t hear from them.
  • If you want to start "content trade", then sign up for a site that lets you produce your own content or do a content trade. Most amateur stars or porn stars use sites like this to be able to make a little extra money while waiting on those mainstream porn companies for work. Amateur content is still a big seller and you can get a camera and lighting for fairly cheap.
  • Get into webcamming! This has become an important part of recruiting and also of developing a fan base. If you already have an online persona, then it's easier for producers and directors to reference your work. It's also a great way to make some extra income.

These are only a few starter tips and a little advice, but we can always develop this column further. Feel free to ask as many questions as you want and I’ll do my best to answer them!
