Have you ever considered trying your luck in porn but didn’t know how to get started? If you want to know how to become a porn star, we suggest you read this entire guide, check out our articles, and submit an application. First off, if you have never worked in porn before then you do not want to start off trying to make your break with Penthouse, Playboy, Hustler, or any of the other big name companies. These companies are for the pros. An amateur will just end up getting chewed up and spit out, so avoid these until you have paid your dues as an amateur. One of the best ways to see if you’d be a good fit for the adult industry is to try your luck at webcam modeling and see how people react to you. If you are interested in learning how to become a webcam model, we have a guide for that as well. The great thing about both porn and webcam modeling is 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. Are you over weight? You can still do porn for a producer who is making a fetish movie needs someone over weight. Are you really hairy? There’s a fetish market for that too. 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 the porn industry, then read on..
To start off, you need to find out if you’re even eligible to be a porn star. If you’re going to become a porn star in the United States, you must have one of the following: U.S. Passport, U.S. Drivers License, U.S. State Identification Card, or U.S. Permanent Residency Card. You must also take an STD test to make sure that you are completed healthy before risking someone else’s health. If you really want to get into porn, you need to go to a porn-friendly city. Los Angeles is the porn capital of the United States. If you’re really serious about becoming a porn star, you’re going to need to either move to LA or be able to make a hell of a first impression. You’re going to find out if there’s a market for your particular look. Sex sells, so even if you’re not the most attractive girl in the world perhaps there might be things you’ll do that other girls won’t that can set you apart from the competition in the porn world, like the fetishes mentioned earlier.
Modeling forums on the internet are a great way for an amateur to break into porn. Amateur porn producers will sometimes list an up coming job on the forum looking for a model. Take a look around our forum and when you find a producer you think you might be able to work with, contact them. 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, etc. 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 . They can never pay enough to put your health on the line. I have seen flavored condoms used for oral sex scenes and I have also seen baby food used to replace a man’s bodily fluids for these types of scenes. So make sure one or the other is used to protect yourself.
Bondage and fetish porn are great paying avenues to get into but one must be safe when doing this. Never do bondage with just you and another actor or actress alone with the producer. Make sure there are other people around. This is another area where a chaperone is a great thing to have with you. When you are tied up you are at the mercy of those around you, so take precautions to keep this type of movie shoots safe for everyone involved. 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 and actresses.
For the ladies out there wanting to get into porn movies, I can not stress this enough: Know Your Bodies. The reason I stress this is that it is not only unprofessional but very embarrassing to be set up for a movie shoot and then start your monthly. If you have irregular periods then go on the pill to help you to regulate them to where you know exactly when you will be starting and ending your monthly. This way you know exactly what days of the month not to book any movie shoots for. 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 campaign 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. Drink to be social but know that by getting drunk you are likely to look unprofessional and risk making a fool out of yourself.
Porn movies are a great way to make money while having fun. Frequent the modeling forums to get yourself started with a producer. With amateur porn you don’t have to stick with just one. So network with other producers to broaden your horizons. Actors and actresses are also great to network with when breaking into the porn industry. Get yourself out there and be seen! Webcam modeling is another great way to gain exposure and meet other people in the industry. Interested in learning about becoming a webcam model? Click here to read out webcam modeling guide.
