How To Get Into The Porn Industry

There is a lot of money to be made in the porn industry, unfortunately there is no set way to learn how to get into the porn industry. There is no school you can go to and no training you can get, as you would with a so-called traditional job. There are however various steps you can take to increase your chances of being successful in porn.

To get into the porn industry you will need:

  • Photos
  • Picture Identification
  • No inhibitions
  1. Consider all the pros and cons of your decision to get into the porn industry. Working in the porn industry doesn't just affect you, it will also affect your friends and family members. Once your image is out there, it can be very hard to switch to a traditional career path. Don't just make up your mind because it seems like the right thing to do right now, consider the effect it will have in the future.
  2. Find out what the legal age is to work in the porn industry in the area you live in. In the United States the legal age to get into porn is 18. Working in porn under the age of 18 is illegal.
  3. Groom and take care of yourself from head to toe. Appearance is very important when getting into the porn industry. Women especially need to be in great overall shape, since it is the first thing that will get noticed. Hair, nails, skin, weight and body proportions all need to be groomed and balanced. Men don't have to worry as much about their appearance. For them the actual performance is the most important part.
  4. Take acting classes to help you with your believability. Women trying to get into porn can often fake their on-screen performance. Some acting skill is needed to make this seem believable. This is where acting classes can come in handy. Men on the other hand, cannot fake their performance.
  5. Use a professional photographer to take head and body shots. Your photos are your business when trying to get into the porn industry. Not only can they help you find an agent, they can also help you get auditions.
  6. Contact agents specializing in the adult entertainment industry. Mail them your photos if requested. An agent represents you and can help you get auditions for parts in adult films. The agent works for the actor and only gets paid when the actor gets paid. Your agent needs to know what you are and are not willing to do on screen.
  7. Obtain two forms of photo identification. Before filming an adult film, you will be asked to provide two forms of photo identification. You will be asked to hold the paperwork up while saying your name on camera.
  8. Test for sexually transmitted diseases every 30 days. Results of your test will be asked before starting to work on a new project. You should also request to see your fellow actor's test results.
