Despite popular belief, not just anyone can be a porn star. The adult industry is about making money and they have found that typically the most attractive males and females make the most money.
So yes, like it or not, you will be judged by what you look like. However that being said, beauty standards in porn are significantly different than in Hollywood. Some of the most famous and successful porn stars who make a ton of money every year, would probably never be given a second glance in mainstream. I guess what I’m trying to say is, don’t judge yourself to harshly.
If you don’t submit a picture when you apply, you won’t be considered. Your application will automatically be deleted.
If you don’t liven in the United States, your application will automatically be deleted. As I said like oh 200 times all throughout this site, the law prohibits anyone from working in the adult industry without a valid work permit and the government will never issue a work permit to someone who wants to come to the US to do porn. Sorry, it’s just not going to happen.
If you submit fake or edited photos and you are initially given interest by an agent, he (or she) will eventually find out you lied and what you really look like and drop you. You’ll never earn a dime so why waste your time and ours? USE REAL UNEDITED PHOTOS. Seriously, be honest on your application.
We aren’t stupid. We know about apps like photoshop, Instagram filters and apps like Facetune. Using these apps won’t help you when you show up on a set and look nothing like your photos. This is why before an agent will ever consider working with you, after getting your initial application and photos, you will be required to skype or facetime the agent. This is when you’ll get caught. You can’t fake live video. They will know right away that you edited your photos and won’t consider working with you as a result.
If you are a male and don’t live in the LA area, you will not be given consideration. Unlike females, agents don’t tend to waste time with a male talent who doesn’t live in LA where porn is made.
