The porn industry has been attracting millions of viewers across the world and pornstars have been in the news for various reasons in the past few years. While female pornstars like Mia Khalifa and Sunny Leone have been talked about a lot, men in the industry also have a challenging job at hand.

While getting paid to have sex may seem like a great job, there are some tough requirements that performers need to fulfil. Although size may not matter in bed, it does matter in porn as the requirement of having an eight to nine inch penis rules out most candidates.

This is followed by the need to be able to get an erection quickly with almost no simulation at all and have control over ejaculation. In addition to having a professional portfolio, men have to be ok with doing things like rubbing their testicles with that of another man during double penetration.

The interview includes getting erect in front of an older man in just 30 seconds. The candidate is asked to masturbate for 10-15 minutes and is given a minute to ejaculate when the director says. Then the man gets 15 minutes to reset and get an erection again which he has to hold for 10 minutes.

During the shoot as camera angles and lighting are readjusted, the female actor’s makeup is fixed and they talk about what the director wants, a male pornstar has to maintain an erection all along.

Given the requirements for the job and challenges on shoot, the job may not seem to appealing after all.
