Deano’s answer to: “Are there ‘rites of passage’ that young porn stars must undergo (like fetishes) before ‘making it?'”

The basic rites of passage for a young porn star of any age:

  • Two different forms of government identification
  • A minimum of 18-21 years of age depending on shoot/distribution regions
  • For men, an accompanying willing actress of superlative beauty and talent

Lacking the above, you really can't make it. Beyond the above, a lot depends on whether you're in it for the sex, the money, the fame and celebrity, an AVN Award, etc… For example, if you want to appear in a film/have sex with a specific porn star yourself, you will need to build up a good reputation as both hard working and generally on time, if the other star is significantly more famous than you, good networking skills, or even purpose-building your own production shingle (to hire them into your own movies) may be necessary. Being featured in DVDs, being part of stage or expo tours, interviewed on MSNBC, etc is just about being well-enough known to be an audience draw. If you're happy to just make bucks, you can do so nearly immediately by signing up with an adult webcam or phone sex service.

Are there "rites of passage" that young porn stars must undergo (like fetishes) before "making it?"
