So Ya Wanna Be A Porn Star - Casting Couch Confidential by Antonia

I am writing this special column in response to the multitude of emails from my sexxxy readers who have expressed an interest in displaying their talents both in front and behind the camera. Some of this information has been gleaned from previous articles appearing in this fine publication. This column has been divided into two categories: one for the gentlemen and another for the ladies. Note to the Trannies: please read both sections. Finally there are a few closing paragraphs with practical information that applies to anyone interested in working “in the Valley”.

First some advice for the Gentlemen:
Remember the old adage regarding the 3 secrets for success in retailing? “Location, Location, Location”. Well, the same can be paraphrased for the Adult Industry regarding male performers. What are those 3 secrets?
“Endurance, Endurance, Endurance”. Yes, young man it doesn’t matter how good looking or well hung you are, in order to be successful as a leading man you must be able to get hard, stay hard, and come on command. All this, while there are a lot of very bored crew members milling about, visiting the craft services table and while your leading lady is getting her make up retouched. Your Johnson must stay at attention while the Director barks his orders at the crew, and you must endure constant interruptions in order to change camera angles. Finally that dandy piece of wood must remain at attention until the Director requests a close up of Mr. Woody for the all important “Money Shot” then you must be able to stand and deliver on command. “What about the fluffers?” you may ask. Honey the fluffer is your right hand, or left and if you are ambidextrous.
Remember: For every 10 guys who say they could, there is one guy who actually can.

My advice for the Ladies:

Show up naked.

And Finally:
There is a lot of practical information available regarding the search for an Agent or getting the proper HIV tests etc. That has already been covered in one of my previous columns. Click on below to read:

There is also an organization called PAW (Protecting Adult Welfare). This is an organization which is very close to my heart and they have composed: The Ten Commandments of X. This should be required reading for all potential talent click on the URL below to view the Tablets themselves.

You may also read “The Latour Letters”. These are the brainchild of my esteemed colleague, the eternally immortal Miss Charlie Latour. They too may be found within the cyber spaces of this fine virtual fish wrap. Check out her excellent rant “A line in the Sand”.

Break a Leg!
