A man who works in the industry explains how he got into it

Ever wondered what it takes to launch a career in the adult film industry? Of course you have, you mucky pup.

Well, we spoke to adult entertainment star and producer Demetri XXX to find out just that.

And, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but he reckons it’s not all it's cracked up to be.

Yep, like most things in life, it turns out that being a porn star might not be as fun as you’d hope.

On the one hand, you probably don’t have to haul yourself out of bed at 6.30am on a cold and wet Monday morning in February - but it’s still a lot of ‘hard work’ (pardon the pun) and Demetri says that he only thinks his job is the best job in the world about five percent of the time.

Demetri started working in the industry back in 2001 after leaving behind a successful career as business analyst.


Speaking to LADbible back in 2018, the porn star revealed that he stumbled on his adult film career after a call from his agent, asking if he was 'happy to get naked' for some work.

The former analyst, who was also working as a model at the time, thought 'why not' and decided to 'give it a go'.

He said: "Before you get offered any 'proper' roles, men are sent along for a casting. The audition process for men is different from women, of course.

"For me, I was sent to a set, there was no camera or crew - just one woman - she had a webcam set up and there were people logged in, paying to watch.

"They were sending in requests asking us to do things - telling us what positions to do, where to put what, etc.

"The main purpose of that process is to see if a man can get wood on demand. Loads of guys think they can, but when they're actually there they crumble. It's pretty daunting and it's definitely not for everyone."


Demetri added: "It was quite easy. The woman was attractive, it was new and exciting. I enjoyed it.

"It was much more chilled than making a film. It's a good way to see if you're a fit for the industry and the industry is a good fit for you."

However, if you're now thinking, 'cool, sign me up', Demetri offers a sobering word of warning about joining the industry.

"People think I have the best job in the world," he says. "And I'd say five percent of the time, I do. But it's also a lot of hard work.

"It's not like having sex with your girlfriend or whatever...everything is done to make the finished product look good.


"Sometimes there can be 20 or 30 people hanging around on set while you're trying to have sex; it's getting stopped and started; the positions you do are designed to look good on camera but aren't necessarily what you'd like to do at home. There's all these things.

"Obviously when it's good, it's great. You turn up, the woman is stunning and you get along, the director is your mate, there's a really good vibe, and, yeah, then it's great. But that's not the majority of the time, by any means."

Don’t reckon I’ll be submitting my CV any time soon, then.
