How Do I Become A Porn Star?

There are a lot of new male sign ups on ItsAdult.com who are going to find their profiles being unverified because the moderators are clamping down on those who lack experience and for good reason. The directory is a service tothe adult industry and it would be of no use to producers if the people verified on it did not deliver what the site purports to be set up for.

We have received complaints that has forced us to consider this action to retain the integrity of the directory as a reliable source of talent and many of you have not even shot for a production yet.
If you want to be taken seriously, we suggest not posting pics of just your dicks. It lacks professionalism and makes you look like youre bragging about being in the business rather than actually working in it. Try and get decent images of yourself and producers may consider contacting you for work.
If you are serious about getting work then you should show proof of ability by including a short video that shows you can perform.
Producers do not have the time or money to spend on new guys who might fail on the day. There are various ways to do this at little cost to you if paying for a shoot is an issue.
Find A Girl Who Is Willing

Put a pic up on social media and ask if there are any girls willing to do content share. Do not solicit girls directly by asking online. Be discrete. Girls hate it when people ask on social media because it opens up the floodgates for everyone who thinks she is giving the sex away for free but some girls are happy to discover new male talent to do webcam shows and content. Do not be surprised if they don't pay you because they expect to be paid for what they do so consider yourselves lucky if a woman agrees to help you with this.
Find A Producer To Shoot It For You

The best part of putting your money where your mouth is and getting a producer to manage a commissioned shoot is the advice you will get and the possibility of an immediate paid shoot with other producers. Terry Stephens at One Eyed Jack Productions is a veteran of over 1500 shoots spanning  20 years and has a lot of contacts if you decide on this option. Usually this involves you paying the performers rate and Terry will keep the content (win or lose) as a content share. Depending on where you are, Terry is based in the south of The UK (London) but if you are in the midlands and further north then Paul Taylor at Dusk Films  might be more practical 
Make Your Own Video

The problem with this is, everyone can perform in their own video, so producers do not rely on home made videos as proof of ability but you can try anyway. Some producers may give you a chance 
Do not ever send videos of yourself masturbating as an excuse you can do it. No one apart from our secretary wants to see that and it's no reference to ability to perform with others in the room and frankly it's just too creepy. Don't do it.
What Producers Are Looking For

Apart from the ability to perform, producers are looking for appealing looking males with a decent physique and well groomed who understands how their performance works with the camera. We are not looking to see you make love intimately on camera but perform in a way where we can see everything on camera. This is the essence of performing in a dynamic way as possible for us to see all the action with a bit of personality or enthusiasm to bring the scene alive. This is normally what seperates the men from the boys with a skilful performance.

Don't forget you will need two forms of govt issue ID (a passport and driving licence or NHS number) to confirm you are of age and you will be required to sign a model release.
It is preferable you have 3 months of clean STD certs if starting out but at least have a clean cert within 14 days of starting your first shoot and keep records of new certs every 28 days
The preferred clinic of choice to the adult industry is 56 Dean Street London who are understanding to our requirements of the adult business. It is important to use a clinic that issues certs on letter headed paper that can be verified if required. 
Good luck with whatever option you decide and if you are successful and get a few shoots under your belt we will verify you and recommend you to producers.
Whatever you do, stay away from rip off scam agencies charging you admin fees. These "agencies" certainly don't have any contacts to get you working in the business and most definitely stay away from Craigs List. We have never heard of a success story coming from there and nor ever likely to
