    So I am looking into the Adult Industry
    Not really as a performer (LOL)
    but as someone behind the scenes
    production/marketing/design/set ups etc
    something first to start out with

    I have a fascination with porn (but not addicted to)
    the male body is amazing and it is some facet id like to get into.

    I've been looking online but if any of you can give me some advise as far as the industry
    where to look, etc.

    I am currently working on getting my BA in business.
    So one day I hope to own my own business. Not really sure at this point but I want to dabble in retail/fashion/ etc.

    This is just an inquiry. I know the pros and con of the industry so just some friendly advice will suffice icon_smile.gif

    If you work in porn, you'll probably never be able to watch it (and enjoy it) the same way again. If you find the male body fascinating, why not get into photography, painting, or work behind the scenes of real films and work with hot actors? I don't mean to sound preachy, but i think you need to set your goals higher.

    its not that I don't have high aspirations, its just that its something I look into.

    I dont judge whoever does what.
    If you do porn you do porn
    if your a doctor then good for you
    if your into music do then do music

    My aspirations in life are to
    have a great lifestyle in regards to success, $, happiness, and love

    whatever endeavors people choose to get to where they are is their choice
    i don't agree with those that lie, cheat, steal, or kill to get to success
    but im not going to judge someone who has to do something others wouldn't, its just not their thing.
    a stripper stips to make $
    if they hussle for that $ then they hussel.

    My point was to ask for advice in how to get into it not as a performer (as its not my thing)
    This area of work fascinates me.

    You'll find a 15 minute porn segment takes like 8 hours to shoot and the behind the scenes will be extremely matter-of-fact and not really sexual. It'll just be a job, like any job.

    From experience, THIS. I ve done it, and id never go back. The worst is you work with bitchy queens 24/7, it gets old so fast. God forbid you go to work unshaved , in a hoodie and running shoes even though you sit on the computer and edit shit all day. You will get bitched out in the office.

    You will also completely lose your sex drive 100%.

    It's just a job, but it will probably leave you completely numb sexually.

    I don't think it will actually do anything for your sex life. But don't expect it to be just staring at naked men all day.

    Probably should be on dirty jobs....

    You are going to have to put up with a lot of rather disgusting things I would assume. It is probably going to be hard work. You will probably see some shit that even doctors who have had years of experience might get sick seeing. Also I would assume the better the actors look the more high maintenance they will be.

    But hey, it is just another job....
