    once you decide to do porn in stays with you forever. I have no problem with it, but have seen both men and women get harassed at jobs for it. think your decision through

    Well, I hope you are not studying a field with anything to do with education. There are teachers that have done this line of work that have been fired on the spot, no questions asked. If Corbin told you it was only one Id be skeptical, if you are a good looking popular guy with the fans of the site they will offer you more money to do another scene. The fact you are very likely a good looking guy with a huge cock is gonna get you more attention and likely more offers. He pays his folks well though and gives them benefits if you stay on sooo... But career considerations better be your top concern- family and friends I say who cares, like they have lived a perfect life?

    Sad to say that porn is not legal everywhere. It is illegal in numerous places inside and outside the jurisdiction of the United States. The U.K. has some particularly interesting laws on porn and porn actors for material produced outside their own shores. The Middle East is definitely a problem location if a job were to ask you to travel there. There are many locations with very strict guidelines if your past were to be discovered.

    Age of legal majority at the time the material was produced presents another problem because when it comes to sex acts, some jurisdictions do not view sex as consentual unless both participants are over 21 years of age. It may be 18 in one place, 16 in another , but, the statute that applies is the one in which you the porn actor are arrested and charged in later life.

    Employment requiring any kind of security clearance is out of the question for you if you have done porn. Some bonding companies may also refuse to bond you in some kinds of financial work if the past were to be uncovered.

    People have been granted rights to do things in private, but, private corporations are not required to adhere to things in this manner and with many conservative administrations having upheld many idiotic laws regarding what people do in their private lives, this is a chance I would rather not take if I were you simply because at your age, you do not know where life will lead you.

    Working in any career dealing with children such as counseling, scouting, psychiatric employment, and even some parts of medicine are areas that would possibly eliminate you at the first convenient moment if they found out.

    The worst part is that you may be 10 years past your porn career and without warning you get called into an office and you never find out why.

    I am 56 years old and I, because of the kind of work I did had opportunities to meet and know many who were well known as men in the adult entertainment business. One young fellow kept trying to "get out" of the porn business. He was a young blonde haired kid about the age you are right now. People kept recognizing him because he had been very prolific in the 1980's. He found true love and the love of his life worked for Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, CA. This young guy ended up with a Florist Shop not too far from Glendale, California. He deliberately did a great deal to alter his appearance. His final effort was to literally have his Mother record a new message and have that message state that he had died of HIV complications. His life partner made good money and they very quietly did tons of publicity talking about his death to get rid of this horrible past and the problems it brought with it. I will not mention who it was because this kid literally did everything to put that life behind him. Sean IS a great person and had suffered terribly because of his association with the industry. Porn careers haved killed bodybuilding careers because these men are not usable to promote supplements related to bodybuilding. The late Rob Sager, Tom Katt and one other fellow now a PT in Florida have lost numerous contests not because they did not meet the qualifications but purely on political grounds.

    Now gone are Ed Wiley, Scott Taylor, Thom Katt (not the bodybuilder turned born-again) Lance, Melchor Diaz, Rick Donovan, Lee Ryder, and one of the nicest people who was Al Parker. All of these names were the acting names and not the real names of these people. Porn careers caught up with all of them and most had very difficult times as they tried to exit the business and resume normal lives.

    Getting in is very simple, have what they want, you're in. Certainly to be considered is in some ways a dubious honor. The problem with it is that something that you do for a short time can have lifetime consequences and the consequences become more and more of a problem the more popular you become in that field. If you are fantastic and the best out there with regards to plowing either a male or female and expect to be required at some point to do both, your exposure increases and your chances for recognition by some unwanted individual are increased.

    Some would argue that the person doing the recognizing was watching the porn or some other line of thinking, but that does not matter. As has been stated watching porn seems to be accepted univerally, making it is not.

    Make straight porn and many feminists want your butt in a sling because you have done something to in their eyes reduce the importance of women and to sexualize women period.

    Make gay porn and even the bigots who watch straight porn hate you because while they were watchinig you screw some female and were masturbating, the minute you did that three way with some guy you're now a pariah.

    Many great people are badly hurt by that business. As a porn actor you are about as disposable as they get.

    Think long and very thoroughly in regards to this. The best answer you can give to this porn company is that you have changed your mind.

    I always thought it would be awesome to be a pornstar, but I don't have the body for it. If I was given the chance to appear in a porno, I don't know if I would take it. It would be hard to get rid of that image if you ever wanted to do anything else with your life.

    Let us know what you decide.

    I think everyone's being a bit scaremongery here.

    Yes, absolutely you need to be aware of the consequences. But as long as you go into it with your eyes open and understand all that, then I see no reason not to. Yes, don't do it if you intend a career in public office or the church or childcare. That would seem to be common sense.

    Make sure the studio is reputable. Try to find some other guys who have done it and talk to them, not in the company of the producers. Find out how those models were treated, how their life has been since. Make sure the studio isn't going to force you to do anything you're not comfortable with. No bareback, no fetish if that's not your thing, etc.

    Many of these companies treat their models very well - health care, full-time salaries even. Others do not. Do your research.

    As for how traceable it is - this is the internet age, and nothing is ever lost. All it takes is somebody finding a picture of you and a picture of "you" and putting them together, and the secret's out. What matters is whether that's a problem for you or not. If you want to record your beauty on film and are not ashamed of that, then go ahead.

    My biggest advice is not to make porn your life. The reason that some of these boys have gone off the rails is that they let the porn life overwhelm them - it's all they have. If you have a life and friends and a job outside of porn, then that is really the best thing. It grounds you. It should be a bit of fun on the side, not your be all and end all.

    And most importantly, if you do decide to go ahead and do it, let us know when it's released so we can see you in action. :wink:

    You're on the internet, for God's sake. Just do some googling. It's all out there if you make the effort.

    ive looked at it just for curiosities sake and it seems gay porn is the only way to start these days as most straight companies dont need guys (but always need girls, which is obvious) funnily the idea of me doing it came up with my gf and she said, she would let me, agreeing to what i said about being down and out and needing money. its your first shoot and chances are you are going to be doing something small. is it masturbation or full sex? if its masturbation chances are you are going to be lsot in the millions of other masturbation vids. if not, than i dont know

    well they said that they would fly me out and we'd discuss it. what kind of scene id be doing that is...the guy said he flys out about 4 guys at a time in order to do anything from just j/o or bj or sex...if i go out and do 1 bj scene and 1 sex scene, or just 2 bj scenes which id prob be more comfortable with, i can make a lot of money and if they like me they said that they would have no problem letting me come back for future shoots...im still in school and didnt get an internship yet because the program im in will set u up with one junior yr and if i do this one week of porn id make more money than with any other summer job i could probably get....my familys not rich and it would be nice to be able to support myself on a greater level by just doing some porn on my breaks from school,like summer winter spring break...which would let me make as much money as a job in retail would with less time so i can concentrate more on my studies and possibly get more scholarships that would cover housing and stuff since im already on a tuition full ride....its just im not sure how i would feel if people found out...or whether or not i should care. plus i was watching an episode of the tyra show where she had the gay for pay guys on it and one of them works at subway so im not sure even if the money thing works out like how i plan it would... thanks by the way for everyone being supportive and not mean!lol

    Don't do it idoevrythng. The money may seem tempting now, but compare it to what you could possibly earn in the future when you finish college. I'll bet that in a few years time, it won't look so great. I agree with everything people have said so far about the possible consequences from lost job opportunities to humiliation and shame that may follow you the rest of your life. I know it's tough to get through college, but it will be worth it in the end. I was the epitome of a starving student as I put myself through school. I had to work at loads of low paying crappy jobs because student loans (which took me 9 years to pay back after graduation) were not sufficient. Today I enjoy a very comfortable life and I like what I do, so it has paid off. One wrong step in the past could have messed up what I have today for the rest of my life. Just ask yourself if you can live with the consequences of doing porn for the rest of your life. It seems like short term gain for long term pain to me. You can't unring the bell. Once you have done it, there is no taking it back.

    Male homosexual porn stars make as much as 10 times as much as heterosexual ones, so the money would be really good, especially for a college student. Trust me, I know what it's like to need money for school and crap. Yeah, it would be embarassing if people found out but you could always deny it. Just say it's someone who looks like you.
