“Hello! If you’re reading this you’re either thinking of joining the ranks of on-camera adult performers, or have already started such a job. Some of you may be doing this as a temporary occupation and some of you may be “Lifers” like me (2014 will mark my 30th anniversary in front of the camera).

You’re going to make mistakes as you figure out how to make this work for you, but there’s no need to make my mistakes. Allow me to offer words of hard-won wisdom that, if I had only known then what I know now, I’d have had a much better and more profitable time (and I’m considered a success story!).

In a nutshell, here’s what you should be thinking about, or have already figured out:

4. If you don’t do something at home for free and for fun, DO NOT do it on camera for money. That goes triple for anal.
A true fan wants to see you have an authentically good time, not a pretend one. ONLY do acts on camera that you already like. If not, there’ll be a record of you having a shit time and the money will be spent. And if you don’t do anal, then Don’t. Do. Anal. Just don’t. Really.”
