HOW DO I BECOME A GAY PORN STAR?

There are two questions that people send to me time and time again. First, can you identify the person in this tiny thumbnail? (Answer: yes, sadly.) Second, how do I get into the gay porn industry? It seems fairly straight-forward to me, but for those of you who haven’t worked in the industry for the decade, maybe it isn’t. My short guide to getting into the gay porn industry, after the jump.

1. Have two of three: cute face, big dick, great body.
If you want to become a gay porn star, you need to have at least some of the goods: cute face, big dick, great body. I first learned this from Michael Brandon who humbly told me he had two of the three:. (I can’t remember which one he declined.) But it’s still true. While there’s always someone that will shoot you for $100 in a local hotel room, if you expect them to put you on the boxcover or fly you out to the shoot, you’ve got to be able to have at least two of three.

2. Target Your Studios
Getting into the porn industry is like getting into college. You need to be realistic, and you also need to target the places that are the best match for you. If you’re a muscle-y, relatively hairless white jock, you’ve got your pick. Everyone wants you. Falcon, Sean Cody, Hot House, Men.com, you name it. Assuming you don’t mind living on chicken breast and creatine, and having sex for three hours on end during a shoot, you’ll do 30 scenes before your 25th birthday and become a superstar. Congratulations!

If you’re hairy (and don’t want to shave), you’ve got Raging Stallion or COLT or (really) most of the studios I mentioned above as well. Are you a post-twink with tattoos? Cockyboys. You get the idea.

3. Take Realistic Pictures
Studios get dozens of applications a week. Take a full, no-fuss, no-muss body shots. There are lots of hot guys out there, so model bookers look for red flags: photos that are from creative angles that might hide flaws. Photos that don’t show anything. A glass pipe on the nightstand. You’ll need at least four photos:

*Full Body Frontal
*Full Body Rear
*Close-Up Face
*Cock Shot (hard)

As important as the pictures? The email that accompany them. (PRO TIP: Do not apply for a job when you are drunk and high 4:15am on a Saturday Night). These are businesses — for the most part. Treat this like you would a job application. Send in the goods, write a nice note explaining who you are, how old you are, where you live and what you’d be interested in doing (top, bottom, BDSM) and anything notable. If you have a profile on Big Muscle or Dudes Nude or Xtube.

Then sit and wait. Porn companies are busy — they’re constantly shooting, they’re often short-staffed and they may like you, but might not get back to you that day. Do NOT write them seventeen crazy emails. If anything, follow up a week later and ask (politely) if they received them. Or tell them that you’d really like to get into the porn industry, and you’d be willing to change things if you’re not right right now. (Work out more, cut your hair, etc.).

You can also always email Howard at Fabscout (one of the big agents in the business) and do the same.

4. Figure out what you will or won’t do.
Are you willing to bottom? Top? Have sex without condoms? Have sex with a woman? Pull a train? These are important things to know. (Mainly for yourself — don’t get pressured into doing anything you don’t want to?)

5. Don’t be crazy.
No one wants to be on a set with someone who is drugged out, crazy or has a diva complex. A studio has to fly you out, put you up and have dinner with you. There are plenty of nut jobs in the industry, but for the most part, they hid it during the application process.

6. Go For It.
You’ve got your photos? You’ve uploaded a clip to Xtube of you jerking off? You’ve taken your meds? Okay, here are the emails:

Bound Jocks (Northern California)
Channel 1 Releasing/Chi Chi LaRue (Los Angeles, CA)
Cockyboys (New York, NY)
COLT Studios (Sonoma County, CA)
Corbin Fisher (Las Vegas, NV
Dominic Ford (Hollywood, Florida)
Falcon Studios (San Francisco, CA)
Hot House (San Francisco, CA)
Kink Men (San Francisco, California)
Lucas Entertainment (New York, NY)
Men.com (Montreal, Canada)
NakedSword.com (San Francisco, CA)
Next Door Male (Northern California)
Randy Blue (Los Angeles, CA)
Sean Cody (San Diego, CA)
Titan Men (San Francisco, CA)
Treasure Island Media (San Francisco, CA)
One more word of note. I’ve just told you how to become a gay porn MODEL. Becoming a gay porn STAR is entirely up to you.

    Very Cute, all put together, adds up like the measuring square for a centipede, would you want to insult one; comparing it with this kind of running away with what doesn’t add up, as it doesn’t to-be-if-it-does, which it won’t

    Step 6 is the ultimate.

    Take your medications, to make sure you don’t do anything creative. Make sure you don’t end up with the Hallelujah chorus but something that resembles Amy Winehouse going to rehab and sounding like Sarah Palin does a Disney Movie. Make sure you’re desensitized into being the sand paper other people grind into with their prefabricated it doesn’t add up plots (1001 legs included); make sure instead of communication you’re involved with addicting people into thinking that finally seeing guys really getting it on together amounts to looking through the same paint by number sporty looking white male college or ghetto material riled up let’s show how frustrated we want sex but have to look over stimulated so that it’s considered bad-naughty-perverse-sinful, the whole nine yards (12 times 9 inches times three)…because if we were sensitive it wouldn’t be addicting, although the producers call that fantasy, which is the hard earned attainment of as far as they can go, so take your meds or you might do it yourself better…

    Or you might actually look into what being sensitive, emotional, having a healthy brain rather than being doped up with “medications” that scientifically interfere with healthy neurological activity and cause chemical imbalance (same as the x-meds now called street drugs). No, blocking your ability to feel doesn’t treat a chemical imbalance, it causes one; and feeling and emotions, and creativity, and freedom, and love, and tolerance, and perspective, and understanding, and being human aren’t conditions that need to be numbed; aren’t states that need to be suppressed in order to fit into a paint by number world that needs to numb you before you might find out that where you’re not ending up isn’t where it goes (despite all the adrenaline and chase scenes that say just keep investing in it and you’ll get there)….

    And you might end up where you want to go, were you creative rather than obedient, and you might be sensitive, and you might make love, and you might let others see it, and you might change the world or see what it was to begin with before someone dangled “magic” sex-plots-coercion in front of your head for lack of fantasy sensitivity and creativity……

    It takes a lot of guts to show naked beautiful guys getting it on are, despite those that think the world will fall apart if anyone actually saw how beautiful this is: people will stop working, do nothing but have sex until everything completely falls apart. No one will farm the fields, write books, build houses, play music even. Just everyone having sex until they all drop dead….

    It takes a lot of guts to show this wouldn’t be the case. But how about not falling into the trap of making your rebellion such that you lose the joy that you’re trying to defend. As if enjoying it would be (or is or was) losing the the joy you ruined by deciding you needed to defend it.

    In response to advice point 6: If you think you need to take your meds to be in gay porn, read Anatomy of an Epidemic by Robert Whitaker first, or any number of books that actually scientifically report what’s going on with what are called psychiatric medications.

    And if you are on medications, you may have difficulty getting off of them, you may have great difficulty; so go off gradually and be ready to have to let go of a lot. And I’m not trying to create a fear based scenario to make you even more paranoid and start fabricating problems out of fear, it just can be quite difficult, but also very much worth it. But your problems may be because of your meds, and you may have been prescribed more meds because of the problems that meds you were already prescribed caused. These problems aren’t because of an organic chemical imbalance, they were caused by the medications creating a chemical imbalance. In fact there’s no really conclusive proof that you ever had a chemical imbalance before you went on meds. Sorry, that’s the science. Same as with street drugs.

    So, should non-white interested readers stop reading at point # 2? Or there’s hope for them?. ANY studio hiring them that’s worth mentioning?

    • bubblebu says:

      Yes, they should. As a gay black bottom I have never felt more alienated, misrepresented, AND underrepresented the way I feel when I look at the work of the mainstream porn studios such as the ones listed above. It’s almost as if we don’t exist if they cast a non white they are usually cast as an “aggressive tops”. For whatever reason gay whites like a lot of white people find it difficult to accept non whites, they may post a model in one of their videos, receive a few hate mail and then never put another “ethnic” model on their site again. They say porn is a fantasy, if I cannot look at your videos and fantazise that one of the models (the bottom) is me then it isn’t much of a fantasy at all. Diversity isn’t anti-white, diversity is mixed race, mixed ethnic, black, white, asian, Hispanic, indigenous, and every color, shade, race, ethnicity that’s out there.

  4. Mike says:

    The porn industry is pretty white lately, no doubt about that. But Lucas, Randy Blue, Kink, Titan, Raging Stallion and plenty of others regularly use men of color. And Next Door Male has Next Door Ebony.

    There are other sites — CocoDorm, Pitbull — that I probably should have put in. But frankly, many of them haven’t been producing very much lately. There are many reasons for it, but the most notable is shrinking money for productions. I wrote about it a few months back here.

    “The Secret Economics of Gay Porn, Or Why Porn Has Gotten So Vanilla”
    http://gaypornblog.com/gay-porn-vanilla.html

    The economics of the business make it hard for people to run one-offs and smaller sites, at least in the US. Not to mention that there’s always been a racist vein in the community, if not the industry.

    • BillieXX says:

      Honest answer. Probably best for aspiring models of color to save their time. Porn companies would prefer to go all bareback than have any models who are not white.

  5. Ahavgra says:

    I think you forgot one important thing: the ability to perform/deliver which in itself means: great stamina, cum on command (not too early to late), great potency, I mean that the penis stays fully erected and not becomes half-erected/half flaccid (is the glass half full or half empty? :D)

    people who tend to cum too early or nead forever to cum, or whose dick goes back to flaccid too quickly won’t get anywhere near to become a porn model.

    I guess you didn’t include these because they’re basics one should have even before thinking getting into porn industry and you’re right.
