Working in the porn industry is a dream come true for many people, but success requires more than having good looks and knowing how to do proper bareback sex. Working hard and learning from those in the know are vital components to becoming part of this industry.
At first, it may come as a shock that some straight men enjoy watching gay porn. According to research, their reasons don’t always coincide with their sexuality.
1. Become a model
Porn models are the stars of their films, and are compensated accordingly. Their job requires looking great while acting naturally, which can be tough under pressure when in front of a camera. But their dedication makes them stars – make no mistake about it!
Top performers may make over $500 per scene. Most gay porn stars, however, make much less; their rates depending on both producer and model.
Porn isn’t a closed community like some might assume; in fact, it welcomes all kinds of people from various walks of life. Joey Mills even launched a campaign for studios to pay bottom male talent at least $1,000 per scene – this idea could greatly assist the industry as whole! People dream about becoming porn stars but only some ever become successful stars themselves.
2. Become a model agent
Model agents are hired by porn websites like Pornhub or Spankbang to find models for their videos. Agents typically receive a portion of any earnings made by models they represent as compensation.
Entering the gay porn industry may seem like the dream job for many men; they envision going onto sets everyday, having sex with handsome men, and earning millions in profits – yet the reality of becoming a gay porn star can be much more complicated.
First and foremost, to become a porn star you need an aesthetically pleasing body; that means having big dicks and muscular physique. Furthermore, you must be willing to explore roleplaying, be badass and express yourself before the camera – as well as deal with rejection while maintaining integrity – while having a backup plan should you choose to leave the industry.
3. Become a model director
At first glance, becoming a pornstar may appear to be an ideal career option: every day on set means more men to fuck and an opportunity to build an empire around porn. Unfortunately, however, becoming a pornstar is far from effortless: behind the scenes lies plenty of hard work that may close doors in later career endeavors.
Maintaining personal integrity can be one of the hardest challenges of being part of such a public industry, which is why it’s essential that you do your research prior to signing any contracts with studios or websites.
Pornstar Kirah recently posted to TikTok about her favorite gay male porn, prompting a barrage of nasty comments claiming that she is “heterosexual fetishist.” As Lucy Neville conducted a five-year study interviewing 500 women about this subject she discovered that many female viewers preferred watching gay male porn as it felt more authentic and natural than heterosexual pornography.
4. Become a model for a studio
If you want to become a gay porn star, the most efficient approach is applying to studios that are searching for models. Look for websites featuring guys that match up with your type (jock, bear, twink, dad or fetish). Many have applications you can fill out or links to producers emails where applications may exist or applications provided directly by studios can also be submitted directly for consideration by producers – be sure to adhere to any studio guidelines as this increases your chance of casting success!
Entering the porn industry can be dangerous; you may need to deceive family and friends about your profession, while finding employment once leaving is difficult. Have a plan in place when it is time to stop performing!
Male porn stars don’t typically earn much in the way of profits; only top performers can potentially make upwards of $100,000 annually, though most only work a handful of scenes each month, which means their total earnings range from roughly $500-1,000 per scene. Most supplement their income with personal websites, DVDs, appearances or escorting services as additional sources of revenue.
5. Become a model for a website
Though pornography might tempt you with money, take the time to evaluate its effect on your personal life before diving in head first. Consider what your finances and sexuality stand to gain or lose by choosing this lifestyle; also keep in mind what might come after its completion – your career choices may open or close doors that would otherwise remain open if they’d been considered beforehand.
Attractively pleasing bodies with muscular physiques are required of gay porn models, including having big dicks and sensuous booties to set you apart from the crowd. Furthermore, you must possess roleplay skills as well as being expressive through body language when doing roleplaying sessions or modeling projects.
Studies reveal that heterosexual men often enjoy viewing gay pornography. Studies also indicate that people’s sexual turn-ons do not always correlate to their sexual orientation – in fact, some heterosexual men find it exciting to view close-up images of other men’s genitalia, likely due to power dynamics inherent in male-male sexuality.
