4 Things to Consider Before Starting Porn

Becoming a porn star may seem like an easy career, but in fact, it can be just as hard as any other 9-5 job. There are things to consider before joining the adult entertainment industry, and these things should be thought over thoroughly.

The first thing to consider is that the way people perceive you will change. When people hear that you work as a porn star, they will most likely assume that you are promiscuous in your personal life and that because sex is part of your personal life, that you are open to it all the time. For some people, this isn't an issue. However, for others it can be hard to deal with.

Secondly, hygiene is not always top priority. The adult industry does make strides to maintain a certain level of cleanliness, but things can get a bit messy when it comes to dealing with another human being's body and body fluids. This being said, you need to be prepared and it is best if you aren't squeamish.

Thirdly, traveling is a must. Most porn stars have to travel for pay, as the porn industry is based in big cities like L.A. Also, unless you are a big time adult entertainer with a huge following, your travel won't be paid for. You have to pay for it yourself each time you need to travel to a shoot- this adds up very quickly.

Lastly, sickness is a big part of the industry. Like with hygiene, the industry does its best to protect its entertainers, but of course, this does not always work. Porn stars get checked for sexually transmitted diseases and infections regularly, but sometimes they can go undetected. In addition to the sexual side of sickness, there are also germs on set, and if someone has the start of a cold and gets too close to you, you can easily pick up the sickness.
