If you're thinking about becoming a porn movie actor, I'd suggest reading up on the experiences of other pornographic actors to get an idea of what is required and how the industry works. There is nothing better than getting an insider's perspective.

Once you've done that you'll want to consider the following things:

  • Physical appearance
  • Ability to perform sexually in front of a large film crew
  • Your sexual boundaries and limitations
How to become a porn actor There are a surprisingly large number of studios and production companies that cater for the 'adult entertainment' industry. Unfortunately, getting their attention can be very difficult.

These companies are regularly inundated with photos and videos of guys who think they have what it takes, but to stand a chance you really need to show up in person and ask for an audition.

They'll usually be able to tell within minutes whether you are what they are looking for.

According to a number of testimonials I've read, male porn actors often need to be able to meet the following criteria:

  • Be well-groomed and athletic
  • Have high levels of stamina
  • Be able to maintain an erection for long periods of time
  • Be able to ejaculate within minutes of being asked to
One suggestion I've heard is that male porn actors are only taken seriously if they can bring a partner to audition with. This may be something you want to consider.

The porn industry

Once you've managed to get your foot in the door, success will be down to both luck and determination. The following are all aspects of the porn industry you may come across:

  • You'll need to provide regular up-to-date STD (sexuallly-transmitted diseases) test results.
  • You'll have to live in an area where jobs are regularly available
All male porn actors struggle at first. It will take filming a number of scenes before work becomes regular, and usually only those who have something very marketable about them make it to the top of the industry.

To become a male actor in a porn movie one has to match the criteria to be selected. Male actors for a pornographic film are not selected on their looks but more for their sexual prowess.

One of the main factors to become a porn movie actor is that the male should be able to maintain his erection for a long period of time on a crowded movie set - and should be able to ejaculate whenever demanded with utmost tangential trajectory!

In the United States alone more than 30,000 full-length films are produced each year. Many actors are open to work in any project including gay porn.

Because of the nature of their work, porn movie actors have to undergo an HIV test before acting in a movie. Sometime during the 1980s a major outbreak of AIDS led to the deaths of many porn movie actors.

As a current actor. I can tell you all that the answers you're getting are all wrong. There's a lot more to what we do than just bang girls. Being bisexual helps some but I'm not into guys at all and I stay very busy.

The biggest thing for me was getting used to the lights. They get very hot and there is a lot of stopping and starting. Camera angles have to be right etc.

Let just say that, as a first statement, it's simple. If you are similar to other males in porn as in if you don't care about your self-respect and the rest of it then you really can go ahead and do it easily.

For the record though, porn is a movie industry and you are a actor and are not necessarily going to have sex as you do at home. Instead of that, you will do a acting job without your clothes where you act foreplay and the lot but it's just to say that most of the qualities needed for acting in a mainstream movie are needed in porn as well.

But, to put it in perspective, it's just as simple as posting photos and application material which varies by movie studio and/or directors and producers - and then waiting to get a call to act.

It is possible to have connections and even agents but it's quite rare outside of the State of Las Angeles. But just try to get a contract with a movie studio which is the only way to get ahead in the industry. It's just as simlpe as making appointments for auditioning and then auditioning.

It's just as simple as finding people to do business with and then doing it. Just as in other fields, the key is to find them and talk to them. Try to get a real job though.

Just submit a picture and a request to the porn production companies.

Becoming an actor of any kind requires training in that field. What the articles by different websites show on the Internet is that there are politics in that field including the danger of health.

Also, you need to know that looks matter in acting. You need to post your resume at websites based on your preferences and wait for their reply for their requirements.

Contact some agents or film agencies. Try searching in Google. Try working
in non-vulgar and non-porn movies - they pay good and are reputable as
well.

If you want to be in an AMATEUR porn movie, all you need is someone to hold the camera to record the action.  Then you can show your movie anywhere you want to.

The Sunday Sport and The Daily Sport are ideal places to start. Also adult magazines - in the back pages there are film companies looking for male actors.

There is a lot of competition out there, and just because you take your clothes off will not result in you becoming an instant millionaire.

I would consider thinking about what makes you different from everyone else. Will you be offering something different for the viewer?

Also consider that you may be keen just now to do it, but what about in a year's time or ten years' time?

Once that film is made it may haunt you forever, and may cause problems if you change career and have porn star on your CV may not be what they are looking for. Good luck.
