Theo Ford - 5 amazing careers you can learn while working in gay pornGen-Y and Millennials are always on the hunt for new ways to develop their skills and broaden their experience to help them catapult their career. Little do most people know, depending on what industry you want to go into, working in the adult entertainment industry could give you the boost you are looking for without expensive post-secondary education. It’s what you do with your 15 minutes of fame that can really make the difference. Here is a look at 5 amazing career you can learn while working in the gay porn industry:

Public Relations Officer:

“Through porn you get a ton of exposure,” said gay porn star Theo Ford. “You have to grab it whenever possible. Working in porn you’re given that chance and visibility.”

Theo Ford is right. For professionals, working in adult entertainment teaches you skills of being comfortable in front of a camera. This is particularly important for people who are in public relations or an executive position and being interviewed by media. Being filmed naked, having sex, takes a lot of guts and is a lot of pressure. Going in front of a camera in a suit and tie is a whole lot easier. Plus, many gay porn stars are interviewed by media, so it’s a great media training opportunity! Practice those interview skills early and often.

Fashion Model

“Before I did porn I did fashion design in Paris for nearly 10 years,” explained Theo Ford. “I was working on short fashion movies. I’m still in the stages of getting better, doing more and more. Modeling is one way to go mainstream. To have a longer lasting career you need to branch out of doing more than just porn. I just started shooting with Andrew Christian!”

Production Assistant

As a model on film set you get the chance to work with a lot of highly skilled and talented people. If you’re interested in working on a set, but behind the camera, adult entertainment is a great opportunity. From lighting and audio, to grips and directors, there are many people you can get valuable tips and advice from. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re interested in video editing, ask to spend time in the studio while your scene is being cut. You can learn so much and add to your personal knowledge base.

Set Designer

Porn actors shoot in all kinds of environments, from garages and locker rooms, to multi-million dollar beach home and luxury hotels. As an aspiring set designer you can get a lot of ideas by working in gay porn. Each shoot happens in a different location, in unique spaces. In some cases multiple scenes are shot on one property, which requires a lot of staging. It’s a great opportunity to work with the team to gain experience and get their insider tricks of the trade!

Creative Arts

“I’ve been very creative all my life, drawing, writing and creating music since I was a boy,” said Theo Ford. “I would write short stories and poems when I was a boy. Modeling leads to acting and writing.”

Whether your passion is writing, drawing, fashion design, or music, being a porn model will help expand your mind. You learn to appreciate the human body and the intricacies of working with other creative and inspiring people. Remember, scripts need to be written for each scene, sets need to be designed, and costumes need to be carefully selected. You never know where your next big idea will come from!

Where will your career in porn take you? You never know!
