Would you do porn?

Unread postby GaySpacePirateKing » 8 July 2019, 19:16

Would you do gay porn for a living?

I wouldn't (and I am not seriously considering doing porn) cause I am way too shy, wouldn't want the fame and wouldn't want friends, family and acquaintances seeing me having sex, but if I was outgoing enough and didn't give a shit then sure why not? Helix guys seem to be living it large by getting paid a lot to have sex with hot twinks that I would want to have sex with anyway. It doesn't sound like such a bad lifestyle at all especially compared to most jobs. I guess I am probably being naïve though because I'd guess that beneath the surface its not so pleasant, but I don't know.

Speaking of Helix pornstars, here’s a video of Blake Mitchell bitching about how lonely his is. Oh boo boo, I’m so hot and get paid to have sex with delicious twinks but it hinders my ability to get into relationships. I’d buy his depression more if he were complaining about having to live in Kentucky. But yeah, cry me a river.

The sex would probably get boring once your over the novelty of having sex with the same hot dudes all the time and when its required. I can also see how being a pornstar might make people reluctant to get in a relationship with you. Still I am sure he has a pretty amazing life though.

On second thought I am lonely and depressed and don't get to fuck hot dudes so fuck him... I mean I wish I could :lol:

Something tells me you would be overworked and under paid. Also what happens when the talent/looks run out? Given the average reported pay per scene one would need to work (more than) 6 days per week, no holidays, no health benefits, etc...

So the only benefit would be the fucking with hot guys who are likewise doing it only for the money. Sounds like an awesome career choice where you really think about it.

I do kind of understand the up-front appeal of getting into sex work, if you're maybe young and desperate for money, and yeah the whole "getting paid to fuck hot people" idea.

However I don't think people really think it through. Unless you end up becoming one of the more famous pornstars, you're not really going to make a living you can retire on once your looks fade. If you decide you want to get out of it and pursue a more conventional career, there's always the risk your past will follow you. This has happened to so many people, including people who ended up working as teachers or in other careers working with children, with the obvious predictable backlash from concerned parents.

Also if you're young and in your prime, let's be real, it's not hard to level up, get in reasonable shape and go fuck some good looking guys at your own leisure with no cameras rolling. As picky as gay men are stereotyped to be (and many truly are that picky), reasonably attractive gay men not that hard to get, for either sex or relationships.

:lol: Oh Derek :keke: :heart:

I too think it would be something worth doing if, you're young, confident enough and aren't planning on another publicly recognised life, later down the road.

I personally, would have done it, not with any intention of making it a career, but for the extra cash, the chance to hit it with some other hot guys, all under the lights and attention of a camera crew and knowing others were gonna watch it, if only I had a clue in my youth, how to go about it. Hell yeah, that would have been something Late teen/young adult, me, would have loved!

Personally, I never intend to work in public life, so it would never have been a detraction and I do honestly think, that unless you become prolific as a pornstar, many kind of fade into the background with time and get forgotten, though not always. I wouldn't have had any issues with people I know, having seen me in action either :shrug:

That all said, I think Yeauxleaux is right, in that, if one does become large enough in that industry, to draw significant attention, it follows you for life. There are quite a few pornstars, who admittedly benefit from making it big, but also, become confined and perhaps even defined, by that career and try though they might, they can't escape it.

Brent Corrigan was huge once, I know he has tried to get out of porn more than once and yet, he always comes back, I suspect, because he isn't taken seriously in much of anything else and needs to get by. As he ages however, he is taken less seriously in the industry too. I've often heard guys, who once salivated over Corrigan and worshipped him, now speak about him in far less favourable terms and I've heard he is ridiculed in the industry too.

I suspect that can be incredibly isolating and perhaps, in some ways more poignantly painful, considering the dizzying heights of fame and desire, one might have previously become accustomed to. An experience we all must go through in life to some degree (aging, fading youth, shifting desirability) but that for one who trades on youth and appearance, it is suddenly writ large.

I think as a career, its one of those lines of work, over which, people don't have as much agency over their own careers as they are subject to the capricious whims of a fickle industry.

^^as far as Brent Corrigan. He's a really cocky SOB. And very unlikable.

He said he wants to work as a farmhand tending to horse's. Lol. But No one would take him seriously because of his porn past.
He actually got signed to falcon studio's. Which is a huge porn company and said they weren't treating him like "Brent Corrigan" should have been treated and walked off set.

In the same hey qween interview he said the murder he was loosely involved in was supposed to be his "cash cow".
Also did a lot of petty shit talking about other porn star's.

Im not trying to invalidate your points at all cause i agree with them. Just give an idea on why he isn't really mentioned much anymore.

Last he said was he and his boyfriend ( another porn star forget his name though) were trying to start some cowboy web cam series or some weird thing like that. Lol. Which the site does exsist it just isnt running.

He could still be pretty relevant. He's just a serious douche. :D

Some of that is news to me :P

But I think it illustrates how the industry can and does shape people and that is something worth considering. Was Corrigan always a douché? Was it something that came to him with time and celebrity and honed by bitter disappointment later in life, being stuck with the options he has, tje result of the choices he has made?

Who can say, I guess.

I think on the one hand, the porn industry has the potential for some people to be something good, enjoyable and affording of opportunities. For others it's something quite different. I suspect it's down to the degree of involvement, success and personal expectation, perhaps attitude aswell?

I mean, he was basically turned out by his family and then pimped out by his older boyfriend, who got him started in porn while he was still underage using a fake ID, and then was allegedly raped by the director of said underage porno.

I was never a fan of his work but it shouldn't be a surprise if the guy is fucked up.

Everyone knows so much more about him than I do! :lol:

I knew about the family thing, the boyfriend/underage thing, not so much the rape situation. So no, not really a surprise that he turned out less savory than one might have hoped.

So I think that is a point worth noting in deciding if one would do porn, if one did so, with a respectable and reputable establishment, be it large scale studio or small independant productions.

A large number of people technically are in porn, simply because they have shared videos with others, of themselves, that have found their way to sites.

Not really the same thing I guess.

Until a few years ago I didn't have any clue who Brent Corrigan or other gay pornstars were until I started watching a lot of gay porn and discovered their names.

I'd think that most straight guys and straight women too have probably never heard of them and wouldn't recognise them if they were to meet them.

Agreed, I can name a handful of pornstars who either really impressed me or who caught my attention for one reason or another, but most are namesless and while I doubt I'd forget some of the really good ones faces, I wouldn't be likely to call them out about it if I were to meet them, incase I was wrong.

I'm pretty sure I have actually seen an english gay pornstar in person, I don't know his name, but he was in some low budget stuff from the 00's ( I remember him so well, because I found him gorgeous) He worked in a shop I used to frequentt and he was either the same guy or an exact carbon copy. Never had the balls to outright ask him. :drool:
