    i know this guy who has a chance to do porn and he is wondering what are the pros and cons

    he works in healthcare...possibility of getting fired?

    The first scene is $500, the following scenes are $700...with this particular studio.

    Does anybody here know somebody who did porn? Has anybody else done it? I know we have a member who regrets doing it because somebody close to him saw but this one doesn't care

    Their website shows how much they pay everybody..one amount for tops, other for bottoms.

    Also it depends on how many scenes you would do after that first one.

    You seem to be aggressively trolling boy.
    Also you ignored the amout of scenes thing.

    Let's focus on the sole aspect of doing porn.

    Read Erik (James) Rhodes blog.

    Perhaps he has detailed some of the pros and cons of being a porn star before he died.

    Unfortunately, it seems like they've removed his blog. I read a lot of it beforehand and each page was more depressing than the last. Just reading it makes you wish you could've been there to offer him simple compassion befitting a person in pain. Makes me much more conscious to the potential suffering of the peers around me, even though they may hide it beneath the surface.

    But I digress. Porn is generally a negative experience, it would seem, because of the desensitization to intimacy, besides an increased tendency for substance abuse. One of the few pros, like with any job, is pay.

    Pro - you're getting paid

    Con - It's probably not going to be as hot or enjoyable as you think, and it will be forever on file for anyone and everyone to see.

    Watch Boogie Nights. It's straight porn-making (Mark Wahlberg is in it). I have read other porn stars comments and after awhile it takes it's toll and you get caught up in some shit.

    I mean, if you do it once and then take your money and run in the opposite direction then I guess the only downside is that now your naked ass is recorded taking it or giving it forever - for your children, students, etc. Meaning if anyone does a background check, it will show up. Employers...

    But at the same time, your getting laid by some hunk for money.

    Pro: $ ... + experience if he's wanting to do porn as a career.

    Con: NEVER assume anonymity with anything online (including adult pics on RJ). ALWAYS assume that parents, extended family, friends, and past/present/future employers will see it.

    Pros: If you've got your head on straight, you can make pretty unreal amounts of money in a short span of time, plus there's the added exhibitionism (which I have to say appeals to meicon_redface.gif ) and fantasy elements as well.

    Cons: Your family and friends are eventually going to find out, that's just the nature of the Internet. You may possibly dodge this if you work for some kind of underground Czech studio or something, but even then...


    The only win-win situation is going back in time, doing porn in the VHS era, and traveling back to the present where it will no longer exist.


    I've heard a lot of ex-porn stars become nurses...
