Leigh Gallagher is a reputable and respected female producer of adult content in the UK for over 20 years. Here she provides an answer to the most often asked question by men <br>How do I get into the porn business?

SO YOU WANT TO BECOME AN ADULT MALE PERFORMER?




Firstly, here are some key facts….

    1. Being a male performer does NOT pay huge money! You’ll get less than the female and less than the producer!

  1. You will often be required to travel, UK wide and at your own expense.
  2. You will be required to get fully tested for STD’s and HIV/PCR every 3 weeks. You will need to produce your certs before every shoot.
  1. You will be expected to get hard and stay hard, NOT cum during photoset or video filming and then cum on demand.
  1. Most of the positions are NOT natural and can be very tricky to master.
  2. You do NOT get to choose the female performers! This industry includes ladies aged 18 – 70 of all shapes and sizes.
  3. You will be expected to be able to work with a camera over your shoulder, between your legs, stopping and starting etc. It’s NOT glamorous!
  1. You will always be CLEAN, well presented, and respectful to the female. We don’t want some guy who thinks he can throw the model around and be rough/dominant. You are NOT the star – the female is.
  1. Yes you MUST show your FACE in the films!
  2. You need at least 7-8 inches and be reasonably fit/slim.

   11.Whatever you do is out there FOREVER. Your Boss will find out. Your wife will find out. Your kids will find out.           It's FOREVER! You can NEVER ask for it to be removed!

 

FIRST THINGS FIRST

If you want to be taken SERIOUSLY as a prospective male performer, you first need a good portfolio

and showreel. Presenting yourself in a professional way will make people more likely to book you

for shoots. Set up a Twitter profile WITH PHOTOS of yourself. Nobody at pro level will entertain a

faceless/mask wearing guy.

 

Step 1 - Portfolio shoot - solo

Get some professional solo pics done. Clothed to nude/erect. (If you want me to do this for you I

can, at a cost to you of £150)

Step 2 - Portfolio shoot – BG

Next thing is to get some professional hardcore photo's done, along with a video showreel. (I can do

this for you but its not cheap as we also have to pay the female model….rough cost total £550 -

£650)

YOU WILL NEED TO GET FULL HIV/STD SCREENING for THREE CONSECUTIVE MONTHS, 28 DAYS

APART WITH NO BREAKS BEFORE SHOOTING ANY HARDCORE I can advise you on how to do this

Once you have taken these steps and invested time and money into yourself then people will

respect that and know you are serious about this business.

 

FREE WORK!

Your next step will be to do some TFP or content share shoots. There are shoots where the female

and yourself are both working for FREE, and both get copies of the material to do with what you

please. This will often be more ‘amateur’ style shooting, so is NOT good material for a showreel.

Get a decent Twitter up and running, promote yourself A LOT, put your pics and some clips of your

videos on…. Also get yourself on portfolio sites such as Purpleport, Madcow, AdultFolio – these are

great as they facilitate a referral/feedback section…so now you can start getting ‘references’.

Once you have a good list of females that you have worked with on TFP/conent basis – you are

starting your way to having some kind of CV…. I would recommend a year of this before you would

be ready to approach PROFESSIONAL producers such as myself.

If you are still keen to give the adult industry a go after reading this then feel free to contact me to

arrange a portfolio shoot, or indeed get another professional producer to do your portfolio for you

and then come back to me in a year or so when you’ve fulfilled the requirements I've listed.

PLEASE NOTE – At present I personally am only looking for new guys aged 18 – 35, so, although Im

happy to help you build your portfolio and showreel, I wouldn’t be able to offer you any paid work

MYSELF at the end of your ‘amateur’ year.

 

Good Luck!

 

BUT…..FINALLY – AND VERY IMPORTANT!

A lot of guys ask me WHY I wont simply book them for a shoot, even though they are not experienced.

So, at ‘pro’ level, I invest a lot of time, travel and money into my shoots. I would be booking and

paying for a location somewhere, paying for my own travel to get there, paying for my

hotel/accommodation, paying the female model etc. This is around £1500 - £2000 that Ive invested.

As a pro, I shoot scenes that I'm going to SELL to companies.

If I book you on a shoot and

  1. a) you don’t turn up
  2. b) you cant get hard
  3. c) you cant do a cum shot

Then I’m £1500 - £2000 down with nothing to sell.

THIS is why professional companies only book guys that we KNOW can do the job.

 

However…IF you are THAT confident….and aged 18 – 35, I will give you a fast track opportunity!!

You give me the £2000 costs of a shoot, turn up, when I say, where I say, work with who I say, do the

job…IF you CAN do the scene then you get your investment back PLUS payment for the scene!!!

 

Plus obviously it’s the start of your career working with me plus other companies….If you REALLY are

confident then this is your quick way in!!!
