Performer Rights

There has been a lot of talk lately in the industry about performer rights. As a porn star you have the right to say yes or no to anything you want (as long as it is legal).

  • If you don’t like someone, don’t have sex with them.
  • If you want to have sex with a condom on, let your agent know.
  • If you only want to do boy/girl scenes with your boyfriend, say so.
  • If you don’t want to work on Sunday’s – then don’t.
  • If you don’t want to do anal, then don’t.
  • If you don’t want to do interracial, then don’t.
  • If you don’t want to do bondage, then don’t.

That’s not to say that your rules won’t cost you some jobs – it might – or it might not. But the point is, in the end the decision is always up to you.

Never be afraid to say no!

One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to keep a “no list” on file with your agent. Sometimes you’ll find that there are just some people you aren’t compatible with. For example a guy in the industry may escort bareback in his spare time and that puts him at a high risk for contracting STD’s or worse, HIV. For that reason, you want to avoid working with him – put him on your no list. You don’t have to say why, and nobody will really probably ever ask.

Some girls won’t work with guys who have a cock that is to big because when you have to do long scenes it can hurt the next day – so as a result they put certain guys on their no list.

And it’s not just males that girls put on their no list.

There was one well known porn star, one of the most popular a few years ago who was really infamous party girl. She would go out to bars, get drunk, pick up guys and fuck them right at the club (without a condom). She was always coming home with some STD. It was crazy how many times that girl got gonorrhea.

A whole bunch of girls in the industry knew this about her and as a result put her on their no list – refusing to do g/g scenes with her or threeways.
