Most people have the misconception that you must be a smooth, muscle-clad twink, with perfect hair, sexy eyes, and a giant cock if you want to find work in the adult entertainment industry. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is, guys of any age can find a job in the adult entertainment industry, regardless of their age, physical stature, or size of their dick.
While it’s true younger guys typically get more attention in the media and on event flyers, there is a demand for guys of all different shapes, sizes, and ages. They key is knowing where you would fit in. The reality is, not everyone is into twinks. Men like real men. Guys that have beards, chest hair, muscles, and tattoos. Everyone has their own type of fantasy guy; studios recognize this, and that’s why there are so many different types of porn produced.
“Like people were called to be a priest, I was called to do porn,” said gay porn actor Christian Mitchell. He was a member of a local BDSM club where he conducted demonstrations on how to perform kink safely. “It was there that I learned I was an exhibitionist.”
Christian Mitchell’s first spark at considering working in the adult entertainment industry was when he was watching a Falcon Studio’s movie. He recognized its high production value and could see the opportunity of working in the industry, and being able to explore both this fetishes in kink and being an exhibitionist.
“One day I woke up and said if I’m going to do this, I better do it now, before I get too old,” said Christian Mitchell.
Most people do have a fantasy of being in porn. But when they stop and do a reality check, age and body image are often considerations for them not applying, on top of other fears, like how it will impact their job.
For Christian Mitchell, he didn’t have to worry about his full-time job being an issue. “One thing that I learned from my day job was how to be persistent, and how to market and pitch yourself to people,” explained Christian Mitchell.
Christian Mitchell admits that besides rejection, not getting into the industry earlier was one of his biggest fears. “I was worried that I had waited too long. But as it turns out, I got in just under the wire.”
If you’re not the All-American, 22-year-old muscle jock, you can still get into the adult entertainment industry. You just need to be wise about it.
“Learn about the business and watch a lot of porn,” recommends Christian Mitchell. “Watch different kinds of porn, not just what you are into. Learn about what types of movies different studios make. Only apply at studios that are a fit for your body type.”
It’s a great piece of advice. It wouldn’t make sense for Christian Mitchell to apply at a studio like CockyBoys, because they don’t work with guys like him. “Apply where you could bring a particular sexual skillset,” added Christian. “I applied a Club Inferno and I got a job because I’m into fisting.” Being relevant is key.
