Getting into Porn: Some Tips from Travis

    I get asked all the time how to get into porn. Well, I've never really tried to get into it myself, but I've been around models and played with many quite a lot over the past 8 years. I learned a lot and that's one of the reasons I prefer to make my own amateur stuff. Regardless, here are a few things I picked up along the way.

    Making porn gets expensive and theres tons of it out there so studios try hard to keep their expenses very low. So, availabilty is key. You will have a better chance to get into a film if you can be on the set with very little notice and at no expense to the studio. Never say no the first time your asked to model. You may never be asked again if you do.

    Be reliable and be prepared to work long boring hours. Porn is really hard work so a good work ethic is important. Afterall, porn is a business.

    Get used to the idea of living on protein shakes and nothing else for two days before a scene. You're going to have a long day when you shoot and you don't want to take any breaks to clean out if possible.

    Offer to film free or a very humble fee just to get your foot in the door.

    Apply to studios directly on their website. They usually have a link to apply online.

    You gotta be hot...or not. Take a look at the models a studio is putting in their films. If the models are twenty-something with hot bodies, you better be too. If not, find other studios that are using men that look like you.

    Network! Go to the events or promotions the studios are hosting. Folsom Street Fair is an excellent event to find many studios promoting their models and their videos. Meet the models and introduce yourself but be unique. You and another hundred guys are doing the same thing.

    Get some professional photos made to help you look your best to send out to studios.

    Browse the Internet for sites that publish news about the industry and find out what's going on. Know your market!!!

    Make your own video content but beware, this can backfire on you. My first porn scene was terrible! They wound up using it anyway, but I'd never tell a studio about the film as a reference. You can post to Xtube and other tube sites, but you better make sure its done really well. It should look like it was made by a studio or the action better be fucking sizzling hot. 

    Okay, thats about all I can recall for now. If you have additional questions just post them here and I'll try to be quick about answering them.
