    Okay. I'm 24 and have got my first ever porn crush (is that good or bad?).

    TYLER-ST-JAMES-Muscle-Gay-Porn-Star.jpg

    His name is Tyler St James, and physically, he is perfection to me, physically. Tanned, STUNNING face, beautiful green eyes. Enchanting smile. The only thing he could do is have a lil bit of body hair.

    Now, this is guy is so amazing to me. I just can't understand why anyone would do porn. This guy is effectively closing his life off to so many opportunities, both professionally and intimately. (Let's face it, once you do porn, you hardly have doors opening in your life like you would if you hadn't done porn)

    I had a friend who worked for Sean Cody in San Diego and he said the majority of gay porn is done by straight guys (which is a reason alone why they are closing their lives off... what normal straight female would want to be with a GAY porn star.... by normal, I mean having a normal lasting relationship). He also said they get paid $3,000 per scene. $3,000!!

    $3,000 is NOTHING!! $3,000 to put your body parts, your ass, your cock, your sexual intercourse potential all over the internet, for it to permanently remain there for ANYONE over the course of their lives to discover. Let's just say they do ten scenes, that $30,000. That's like an entry-level salary.

    In Tyler St James example he is clearly fitness focused? Why would someone like him choose to do porn over a career in say fitness or even fitness modeling?

    I just don't get it.

    Maybe you should look for less superficial aspects of perfection.

    I completely agree with what you are saying. But I did say he is PHYSICALLY what I desire. Mentally.. the chances are that he would not cut the mustard. And in this situation I am only physically talking about him.

    If you were any more worldly sheltered, I'd be worried for your supply of breathable air.

    I wouldn't say that. I know quite a few guys who do porn and their lives don't seem to be suffering for it. Not anymore than anyone else who has not done porn. So I say, what ever floats your boat.....

    Porn is not a full-time career for most.

    If you read a couple of interviews, you will see that performers still have careers outside of porn. In the case of Tyler St. James, he can still work in fitness (perhaps as a trainer) and do modeling on the side.

    And to the performers who are having a hard time finding dates because they did porn...

    Look. I agree. Doing porn is going to eliminate all opportunities from your lives. But you cannot say that doing porn hardly will allow you to become a lawyer, accountant, work in sales, basically any capacity where you have a clients/customers (other than fitness, but even that has its limits... you can't become a top-notch fitness guru)

    My point is for the little amount of money that you get for doing porn, and the opportunities that you loose, why do people do it?

    None of that please.... I'm actually asking because I really don't know! Hence the enquiry.

    Seems like you're naive and impressionable enough to be recruited by some cult or other herd lead 'cause.'

    Sex is primal. Porn is a phase. Aside from being sexual interaction, in retrospect it can give insight and experience that one can reflect on, learn from, and benefit from.

    People have their own reasons for doing it—I don't know them all. Some did it for the money to help pay bills. Some may be exhibitionists. It may have been done out of curiosity for the experience.

    You may lose some opportunities, but I don't think it can completely shut you out for what your career goal is, even if it is client-based. It could be that you have to work harder, but the possibility is there. If you're determined and put the necessary effort, I'm sure that overcoming the stigma of a porn past can be overcome.

    Hmm... Really? I'd say quick money... You can make money easier doing other activities.

    It can't all be about money... it isn't even that much money!

    Orly?

    Lets say they get $3000 for whatever they do, lets say full on sex scene. Lets say that scene took all day (just for the hell of it). They made $3000 in one day. Now lets say they did 3 scenes that week at $3000 a scene. So in 3 days they made $9000. How is that not easy money? If they dont care about being naked then how is it not easy money? $9000 bucks in a week is pretty good. Lets say he only did that for two weeks out of the month. So $18000 in a month...............thats a lot of money icon_neutral.gif

    Try having sex with someone else directing every move, stopping you in the middle to change positions/scenes, and blowing a huge load of cum every time you shoot (not easy after a few 'failed' cumshots cause the cameraman didn't catch it).

    It's definitely not "easy money." icon_wink.gif

    What is the motivation or reasoning behind undertaking porn then?

    OP thinks pornstars are beneath him. Boo.

    OP thinks it's more of a shame because the guy is pretty. Boo

    There's nothing morally wrong with being involved in the porn industry. No one is better or worse than another because they are pretty or involved in something tabboo.

    I was broke, have an unual fetish, and decided to capitalize on it.

    Even though I shut it down, I still get royalty checks...just got one yesterday. icon_cool.gif

    More than a job. It's a career. But it's not a career I can put my whole heart into like aviation. That's the reason I shut it down.
