    Almost every time I see someone that does porn referenced, they are referd to as a "Star". I've run across guys that call themselves porn stars but come to find they have only been in one or two amateur movies and while they may be available to rent at the local "book store" , I hardly think that make sthem a star at all.. just a guy thats had sex on camera.

    So, What exactly makes a Porn Star a Star??

    I do sometimes think, if you're that good-looking and charismatic, why not aim for Hollywood?

    And anyone who has watched anything with Keanu Reeves in it will know that bad acting doesn't hold you back icon_wink.gif

    The porn films I hate are the ones where the guys are obviously just going through the motions---either they're not into each other, or they're gay for pay, but either way, zzzzzzzz.


    This. Especially guys who won't even kiss each other.

    Muh ha ha. You so catty today, Lost!

    But I'd imagine the porn "stars" had aimed for Hollywood...and lowered their standards cuz they just needed work.

    Also a random observation: does the top guy in that pic look like he's about 10% bigger scale of the other guy?

    They don't care or want to be "artists", they just want the money, attention or enjoy the exhibition.

    I think any nice looking man can be into porn.. but to make them a "star"
    requires the following:

    1. Dedication to porn as an art
    2. Professionalism in that industry (working relationships, objectives, etc)
    3. A good understanding of who they are, what they can do and they do it.
    4. Being into porn and expressing themselves
    5. A following

    yeah, also thought about that before.

    maybe coz there's no exact words for them, like the words "actor, actress" for the people who act in traditional movies .

    It's still perplexing to me that there are no "porn actors", they are ALL "porn stars". Go figure.

    Who cares?

    Anytime I have encountered a "Porn Star", they are concited, narsasitic, pricks..

    I have one as a friend on FaceBook. All of his status updates are about him and promoting his new calender with a new sexy pic of himself. Granted, the status updates are suppose to be about you, but throw in a witty comment about life, or a link to something cool... not just everytime about how beautiful you are.

    Also, I really think it's funny that they have a tendency to act like they are these living Gods..... Hello!!! you get paid to have sex... in my book that makes you a whore.

    It's hard to say if that's their true personality, and not just a part of the job. I'm pretty sure the turnover rate for porn "stars" is pretty high. They're the hottest thing one day, and then replaced by the new hottest thing tomorrow. So it sort of makes sense that they're constantly promoting themselves. Their time is limited and they have to take advantage of their 15 minutes of fame. icon_lol.gif

    I would think that if you are going to be a star in the porn business, you have to do whatever it takes to make it in the business, be able to get it up and cum on command, and to truly enjoy what you do. That is just my theory.
