How to Find Work in the Adult Industry

Think you’ve got what it takes to make a career in the adult industry?

Whether you are a budding fetish model, wannabe porn star or just a cameraman who wants a change of scenery, the adult industry can offer enormous rewards. Some people estimate that the porn industry alone generates almost $100 billion so, when you add in camming, modeling, stripping and other roles, the business is a lucrative one. However, whilst performers can earn a pretty penny, there are lots of other jobs available too.

In this guide, we give you a rundown on how to find work in porn whether this is as an actor, producer or cameraman. We’ll also give you the best agencies, studios and classified directories to find the kind of work you are looking for.

Working in the Adult Industry

Firstly, we wanted to clarify what we mean by ‘adult industry’ here.

Also referred to as the ‘Sex Industry’ and covering a wide range of work, the adult industry includes ‘front-of-house’ jobs such as:

  • Pornography Actor
  • Live Cam Model
  • Stripper
  • Glamour Model
  • Sex Club Host
  • Phone Sex Operators
  • Fetish Performer
  • Sex Worker (escorts, erotic masseurs, call girls etc)

It can also include all of those other roles associated with the above including film production, directing, photography and other kinds of crew roles.

For the purposes of this feature, we have focused on the porn industry as well as modeling and some other performance roles. The agencies and classified directories listed also offer jobs for cast and crew as well as associated staff vacancies including webmasters, designers and other technical roles.

As prostitution is illegal in many parts of the world, we’ve omitted this kind of career path. We should point out though that some of the job boards listed below do include work for escorts.

However, if you are looking for work in the camming industry then you might want to check out our guides on The Best Cam Studios and Agencies as well as How To Make Money as a Live Cam Model. Our ’Cams & Chat’ pages also include plenty of advice on making a career from camming.

Porn Industry

To be able to work as a performer in the porn industry in any country you must be aged 18 or over, though in some parts of the world (and with some organisations) you may need to be over the age of 21.

Wherever you work, you will be required to meet some basic administrative checks including a right to work permit and hold the relevant tax paperwork. All reputable companies should perform an ID check and provide you with a contract or model release form which grants permission for a studio to photograph or film you.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have the biggest cock or largest breasts to work in the adult industry nor do you need to be ‘drop-dead’ gorgeous, though this can certainly help particularly if you are aiming big. Instead, you need a strong work ethic, an open-mind and be comfortable with being nude and performing in front of people. Of course, if you want to work in porn then enjoying sex is also a prerequisite.

Applying for Jobs in the Porn Industry

Yes, the adult industry still has a job application process and you will need to complete forms, attend interviews and, sometimes, put together your CV in order to bag that dream job.

Depending on the kind of role you are seeking, the application process can be pretty intimate and, in the case of porn actors, incredibly detailed. This is usually around the kind of sex acts you would be willing to perform, any ‘talents’ that you have and full disclosure of any medical conditions.

Most agencies will also require you to provide several photographs in advance of meeting them for an interview, though these are not required to be nude shots. However, they should show off your assets and be of the highest quality.

Most agencies will conduct a series of interviews over email and phone before inviting you to come in to meet face to face.

When attending your first interview, you should wear the kind of clothes that you feel most comfortable in. However, some agencies will ask you to come prepared for a screen test. This means being freshly showered and ready for the camera….so, make sure you have shaved, waxed and whatever else is appropriate before being snapped/filmed.

For women, the purpose is to ensure you have the right demeanor and look and with guys, the producer will want to be able to see if you can get a hard-on without any difficulty. Sounds simple enough but you would be surprised by how many would-be porn stars get ‘stage-fright’.

screen test porn work

A screen test ensures that you are right for work in the adult industry. Image via XNXX.

You will need to sign a model release form before you get in front of the cameras. Oh, and in some instances, you will be paid for this screen test as well as provided with expenses to cover the cost of attending (gas/travel, lodgings etc).

In the case of porn work, before you start performing, it is mandatory in most parts of the world to undergo HIV testing as well as for other STDs. For this reason, a rehearsal/screen test should not include sex but is more of a way to judge your on-screen persona and general attitude.

You might find our recent feature on ‘What Is It Like To Work in Porn?’ quite helpful.

For roles on the crew and in production then you will need to be able to demonstrate relevant skills through your CV plus be able to explain what it is about working in the adult industry that appeals to you.

Best Places to Find Work in the Adult Industry

Whilst agencies themselves work directly with adult entertainment businesses to find talent, job boards and classified directories are a direct way to find work. However, this can mean that the companies advertising have not been qualified in any way so there is no guarantee that the roles offered are genuine (see ‘Warning’, below).

We’ve selected the most comprehensive agencies and directories that cover a wide range of roles across North America, Europe and beyond.

Warning!

Finally, we just wanted to offer some cautionary advice as, sadly, not everyone operating in the adult industry is as upstanding as the rest. There are many jobs (particularly in modeling and porn) that are reported on directories that offer a ton of money to entice men and women to come and perform for them.

Sadly, not all of these are genuine offers of work.

It is strongly recommended that you do not attend an interview or screen test with an agency, studio or any prospective employer alone. Any reputable company working in the adult industry will not object to your bringing along a friend; however, you should be prepared to attend the interview and/or screen test alone.

Before you start any kind of work for a company or agency, always ensure that you have given your full consent and understand the implications of how your image(s) will be used. There is no obligation for you to ‘perform’ for any employer if you have any reservations about them. We strongly believe in ‘spider-senses’ and if yours start tinging at any time during your dealings then walk away.

Good luck with the job hunting. Maybe we’ll see you sometime…😉
