Life in porn is often fun. It’s also a tremendous amount of pressure.
What To Expect
Be confident. Don’t tell everyone your real name. Make sure you go to the gym. Don’t eat carbs. Don’t eat pastries. Don’t eat. Answer all your emails. Suck your stomach in. Have a smile on your face. Be nice when someone stops you and you’re walking down the street. Don’t say anything stupid. Don’t criticize any studios. Don’t complain about your scene partners. Update your Twitter. Make sure your opinion is the official line of the gay community. Be confident. Don’t talk to guys at bars, they should talk to you. Don’t eat bread. Stand up straight. Don’t talk about your relationships on facebook. Don’t date anyone until you’re all through with this unless he’s in porn too. Don’t get to egotistical but don’t forget who you are, either. Don’t ever under any circumstances act effeminate. Accept that you’re educating the public but that it’s “just porn” at the same time. Don’t complain that your legs hurt when you’re topping. Don’t complain that your ass hurts when you’re bottoming. Cum on command. Don’t let your body slip. Get drunk or do drugs because if you don’t, you’re no fun. Answer the same questions again and again. Pretend that sex is the most interesting thing you can think of. Don’t sound smart. Don’t shave your face. Don’t shave your chest. Don’t shave your ass. Shave everything. Be perfectly smooth. Clean out before every shoot until you can’t take anymore. Don’t ask for higher pay. Be confident. Listen to long talks about how the industry is changing. Be thankful that you got work at all. Make sure you email the studios for more work. Dance at events. Get tested all the time. Pay attention to your sore throat. Have sex with this guy you’re not attracted to. Be okay with it if you don’t get a call back right away. Have an opinion. Don’t have any opinions at all. Talk only about trivial things. Accept that you’ll be made fun of if you say something serious. Don’t joke about that, anything but not that. Worry about the future. Worry about your life. Did you fuck your life up? Don’t tell people that you worry about that. Be confident. Don’t eat pasta. Don’t eat sugar. Don’t complain. Do your job. Make sure you escort. You’re a slut if you escort. Make sure you work for a studio. You’ve got nowhere to go if you work for a studio. Don’t ever teach or work with kids. Hide everything. Don’t hide anything. Have a tan. Work out harder. Understand when someone ends a date because it’s hard to date “someone like you.” Forget about your heart. Work on your body.
Don’t worry if what you’re doing is the right thing. Don’t ever question if it’s the right thing. Be confident. There are no morals here, there’s no imagination, it’s just porn.
