Porn Professionals Reveal Disgusting Secrets About Working In Porn Industry

Just a heads up, this post is raunchy and vulgar AF.

An AskReddit post has led to some interesting conversations about what goes on behind-the-scenes on porn sets. The prompt: What is something porn viewers really don’t know [about porn]?”

These hilariously repulsive stories from alleged porn professionals could very well ruin porn for you all together, so I thought it was my duty as a God-fearing man to scare you straight. Here are some highlights from this glorious Reddit post, which you can read in its entirety HERE.

From Reddit:

Former porn producer here:
Anyone being penetrated can call cut.
Enemas are always done before anal scenes.
Men have to keep hard between setups, so a lot of the time they’re just standing there jacking themselves off, or feeling up their co-star.
To follow that up, fluffers don’t exist. I’ve heard that they did when they used to shoot porn on film, and the setups were longer.
Sex is really gross if you’re not involved.
There is no indicator for dicksize. Feet, hands, height, Asian, it’s all BS. The only stereotype that held true were black men dicks being huge.
Same thing for the size of vaginas. I’ve seen women around 5′ take an 11″ dick no problem, but a 6′ woman holding back tears with a 9 incher.
Most gay porn stars straight guys. We had to bring in straight porn and viagra because the guys would get soft… because they were not gay.
Body builder women are crazy horny.
The women are faking it most of the time. But when they’re into it, the sex is actually really hot. We would try to cast couples or friends who are already intimate with each other. We did a girl-girl scene once where the director told each girl separately that the other thought they were beautiful, and excited to work with them. Those two women fucked each other’s brains out, and were fucking each other between setups as well.
If you’re a cameraman in porn, you will eventually get something on you.
Women make WAY more then men, but their acts are itemized. They’re paid for what they do. Girl-girl, guy-girl, anal, DP, ATM, foreign insertion, etc. Back in 03′, a girl could make $2,500 a scene depending on what she did. Men only around $500. But, if you’re willing to get fucked by another guy, then your rate matches women.
Some porn is written, but most of it is improv.
EDIT: Just thought of more things.

Every company is required to have a “custodian of records”. This is a person who’s responsible for record keeping, including the ages of the people in the porn. If someone gets filmed having sex, and they’re under the age of 18, that person is legally responsible. Also, they’re required to display a physical address somewhere on the website or box cover. You can thank Traci Lords for that.
All porn actors must take a series of STD tests from this one clinic in the San Fernando valley. In 03′, it was once a month, but now I think it’s every two weeks. They come to set with their papers, and two forms of ID, or we don’t shoot them.
Content is porn is self-regulated by the industry. The only things that are illegal to film are children and animals, but besides that you can legally shoot what you want. However the problem is that the obscenity laws in the US are really vague, and left up to individual jurisdictions on what they consider “obscene”. Because of this porn companies take a hard line to things like simulated rape, incest, and simulated snuff. Rob Black pushed this too far in the early 00’s and got charged with obscenity in Louisiana. The industry, including Larry Flint, turned its back on him. No legal help, no lobbying, nothing, because he broke the rules. But now I’m seeing more and more simulated incest and rape porn out there, which tells me that companies are desperate to try anything.

not a performer but i produce/direct/edit/shoot etc.
1: the angles are all fake. when you see that closeup of the dick going in and out of her, its bc they positioned to the side, and only like an inch or two is going in and out.
2: there is a lot of pausing, a lot of laughing, a lot of texting, etc in between shots.
3: the way we have to shoot the sex makes it not the most pleasurable. hence lots of faking.
4: the money shot. if a guy can’t produce, there’s a million ways to fake it, and they are used much more readily than youd think. no director wants to stand around while a guy who’s been hard for 3 hours tried to jerk out a tiny little spit of cum. they’ll move right to the tricks. fuck that.
5: yup, the smell. some shoots smell great, some smell pretty awful. i shot an all anal 4 way.

I listened to an interview with Joanna Angel recently and she said that a lot of new actresses have raunchy smelling vaginas and don’t realize it or don’t care. So if she’s doing a scene where she has to go down on a girl with a stinky vag, she’ll stick her fingers in and then immediately put her fingers in the girls mouth. She said “if I have to taste it, you do too.”

One of my first jobs I had to work on a porn set (Not as an actress, just doing stuff around the stage.) Most people do not realize how bad the smell is on set. It’s fucking horrible, especially when shooting fetish porn scenes. It just smells of sweat, piss, and pussy. If that’s what you are into, I highly suggest working on a porn set.
Edit: As much as I enjoyed this impromptu AMA, a lot of you are sick fucks.

I’ve been a male porn actor for two years now, I’ve starred in some pretty professional stuff that went mainly to Bangbros. A porn video usually takes quite a bit longer to make than the video lasts. So even before we start the video, we do the picture shoot. This is done separately to the video and I have to get into all the positions we are going to do and stay still from 20 – 50 seconds, which is really fucking awkward, like no movement nothing. This is why I have to take Viagra before I get to work, it’s hard work staying hard. Also the girl usually has a ton of lubricant for the picture bit because it’s not really like sex.
The videos themselves are mostly smooth, but we sometimes stop to wipe sweat off or have a drink. What sometimes happened once or twice was that I popped too early into the video, and I had to take more Viagra and keep going because the shoot had to be finished within a certain time. That was really unpleasant, guys would know this that after you cum you have no more sexual drive for a while and stimulation is generally not so good.
After the shoot is done we go our ways, I’ve rarely spoke to the girls I worked with much because a lot of them are pretty broken and I’d avoid them if I didn’t have debts to pay. This being said I do enjoy my job most the time, just not the girls afterwards. There have been a few pretty interesting girls but not many, I dated one for a few weeks but it didn’t last.

Anal requires a lot of preparation, including but not limited to enemas, pre-fingering and eating a particular diet or skipping meals that day. ‘Surprise’ anal = you’re gonna have a bad time, from the top or the bottom.
There are a lot more ‘breaks’ to rest, recuperate and wait for the penetrating lead to get hard again than you would guess. Pretty much any time there is a cut in the editing from one angle to another.
Most ‘porn squirting’ (the kind where there are big gushes) is actually piss.
A lot of porn these days is filmed not on a dedicated set, but in the apartments/condos/vacation homes of directors and other industry folks that all trade with each other, for more variety. This is characteristic of the ‘pro-mateur’ style which is stylistically shaped to appeal to people who like amateur porn, but actually involves paid actors and more professional camera equipment, to maintain the illusion that it’s the couple’s own home.
Adult movie theatres / sex stores where men go to jack off and surreptitiously have sex with one another, are almost singlehandedly keeping the porn DVD industry alive.
Conversions on a paysite aren’t as high as you’d think they would be. Advertising and sponsorship are much bigger routes of income these days.
I just started doing porn this year, so there’s probably way more I still have to learn.

There you have it. Porn sets are vile, disgusting hell-holes with an aroma similar to John Wayne Gacy’s basement. Happy jerking, everybody.
