    I know a few people who have done it. The amount you get paid varies by studio etc... id suggest looking into some of those more 'amateur' options. What is it that is in the UK a lot.... naked UK lads or something?

    Find yourself an agent, and um maybe you should try modeling first which is more money and more prestige.

    lol really? Not a bad idea if you don't mind having that for all the world to see the rest of your life. Bad idea if you plan to hold public office or teach someday.

    Or work in the corporate world.
    Or want to go into "mainstream" entertainment, such as movies or TV.
    Or want to work with children.
    Or..
    Or..
    Or...
    Or just making a joke is all I was doing.

    The only porn I've done was on xtube, nothing professional. I had a friend that was in negotiations with Sean Cody years ago, and he said they pay around 3k a vid, solos are less. And if your the receiver, you get paid more. I would prob pay to see the OP in action.

    If you're serious send me your contact information
    My best friend is a creative director for a major east coast production house for gay porn I can forward it for you. Also have connections to the west coast producers.
    We can at least get you started in the right direction.
    Make sure you ask a lot of questions about the lifestyle, it isn't a normal one, it is a tough industry and can wear a person down. What you see on a DVD is MUCH different than the production process that actually takes place.
    You have camera's, lights and people in your face and up your ass, performance issues galore (yours and other guys: think 5-15 people staring at you waiting for you to get hard or cum), performance enhancing drugs *at work* mood swings, desensitization to sex and intimacy and if you shoot in certain foreign countries... it's illegal.
    However, you can meet some interesting people, have some exciting experiences and if you are smart with your money and choices make good money.
    If it's something you're serious about and really want to do drop me a line.

    The pay is not the great and depends on if your topping or bttming, but avg around 200 to 1000 per scene. Also it is not as easy as it looks or as fun as it looks, multiple stops, reshoots, positioning both for the actors and camera.

    Also think about do you want people to know 20 or 30 years down the road when your out of the business.

    Those who are good normally are guys who are into exhibitionism.

    Living in SF knew a lot of porn actors and for some it was a way to make quick money or extra money.

    best of luck

    Oh who cares! Enjoy yourself!

    No, really, nothing wrong with porn but I can guarantee you that you will regret it later in life.

    How many porn actors do most people know the real names of? A handful at best out of many thousands.

    Doing porn is not as bad as what it's made out to be. Doing it on the side can be fun, if you don't make it a career. You're going to appear in the movies with some made-up name, and in 10-15 years when you're ready to switch to teaching or the corporate world these movies would be hardly circulating (unless they're really good) at all. By that time your appearance would have changed some, making it even harder for people to recognize you solely from old video footage.

    If you're not a really good porn actor, you won't become a celebrity. But if you are really good, try to be a model or actor instead.

    Just remember that someone is always going to judge you for it. If you can handle that and plan to work in a field where it won't come back to bite you in the ass, then go for it.

    As far as the judgment goes, there is a really sick and fucked up disconnect with the guys that would judge you for it. I can pretty much guarantee you that the overwhelming majority of them are consumers of the product. So if anyone calls you a loser for doing it, just remember that he's an even bigger loser for jacking off to it and then looking down his nose at you.

    My ex was in many, many porn movies. You will likely get sucked into the escort business as well; a lot of porn actors end up making their real money from escorting.

    Porn has helped some guys get out of some serious financial problems. There are some serious mental, social and physical cost that may befall you if you decide to do it.

    Let me know if you want to chat with someone who was once in the biz; you can ask questions and get honest, unbiased answers without anyone judging you.

    That being said, there is always another option....

    Best of luck!
