Fake Ideas and Secrets of a Porn Audition

At the risk of disappointing some of you, auditions in porn are in fact, not as sexy as they seem and all of the porn videos about this theme are just… Videos, so fiction.

In reality there is no vicious producer and intimidated auditionees playing under the desk before being tested by the whole production team.

The audition fantasy has been staged many times as in French Twinks for example, in the movie “Looking for the New Pornstar” but when it’s filmed and broadcasted it’s no longer a a casting interview but a first shoot with beginners. When you hear “Silence, Rolling” the actors were already recruited, have signed a contract and are paid. It’s the same in the famous concept in which a producer meets by luck an anonymous guy in the street and offer him money to get naked and fuck.

The purpose of this article is not of course to break your fantasies but to shed light on the recruitment process since it’s an aspect of porn that raises many questions.

How are Porn Actors hired ?

Future models are today mainly identified and contacted on social networks by specialized agencies (Scout or Talent Agency, a very anglo-saxon concept) or directly by the production companies. Numerous of Pornstars have not, however, expected to be picked in order to live their dreams and have spontaneously sent their application on the studios website (Apply as model at French Twinks).

«There are many guys who pretend to be recruiters»

Watch out for fake recruiters ! There are many guys (perverse) who pretend to be photographers, recruiters or producers in the hope to steal you a few hardcore photos or worse put you in their bed or blackmail you !

A few simple rules to avoid bad experiences:

  • Double check at the profile of the person who contacts you
  • The studio must have an official website and visible references
  • The recruiter must have an email address matching the website like @studios-name.com
  • Forget “Trailing for free”, it doesn’t exist, otherwise it’s called a shooting with contract and payment
  • Pay attention to fantastic remuneration and deals that sound too good to be true
  • The recruiter must not touch you, at any time

How happens an Interview ?

When an application holds the attention of the producer (on the basis of photos sent by the applicant and a brief questionnaire) contact is established through email / sms / phone or video-conference, but in no case to ask you to show yourself off in front of your webcam.

In addition to a few photos you will be asked about your motivations, your availability, your vision of porn and the remuneration will be mentioned by the recruiter who will also answer all your questions. This audition which is subject to a lot of fantasies looks finally more like a regular a job interview (except a few details).

Tips for applying

  • Be consistent, does not apply to a studio specialized in Bears if you are 18 years and have not a single hair on your chest.

  • Be motivated trust yourself. To have a wish or fantasize is one thing to want to become a porn actor, be proud of it and ready to publicly show off is another.

  • Send clear, sharp and un-retouched photos. The more you look “fake” make-up, filters, black and white etc) the more you risk to be blacklisted. Selfies taken in good lighting conditions are ideal for a casting.

  • Don’t fear and don’t compare your selfies with the professional photos you see on the web. As specified by Antoine Lebel (producer French Twinks) “It’s s our job to reveal models potential and enhance their image. Many don’t dare to apply because of the complex, it is a pity.” (read our article about Dick Size in Porn)

  • See porn as a complementary job and a hobby. It’s no more (Editor’s Note: Thank you piracy and free stuff) a real career plan in 2018. Most of the models are students or have a job on the side.

  • Be available, shooting schedules are irregular and depend on the availability of each models. Be flexible and free easily for a week-end for example is a good point.

  • Stay cool and be serious. Respect, patience, reliability, and control of am, are qualities that are very important to turn porn to a positive experience.

  • Show yourself at your best. A beautiful smile, a face rested, a fresh hair cut and a healthy look are as many assets to attract the eye of the producer.

To conclude you need to understand actors are doing actual performance and that’s not enough to “fuck in front of camera” to self-name yourself a Pornstar. This is the main difference between amateurs sextapes who abound on the web, and professional porn that requires discipline, motivation and work.
