Fame in the adult entertainment industry is a fickle thing. Many performers leave the industry before anyone knows their name. Some experience a meteoric rise, only to fall in the course of a few months. Others prove eternal. Those two components can make a tremendous difference when it comes to what performers earn. But pay is hardly equal among porn stars. The most popular entertainers supplement these earnings by signing endorsement deals, creating customized videos for fans and, in some cases, launching their own production studios. Some performers leverage their relative fame to dance in adult clubs around the country, where they not only earn considerably more, but can also sell their own merchandise.
While it may or may not seem like it, becoming a porn star is actually extremely hard. Pun not intended, but if it fits, it fits, again pun not intended. Everyone watches porn but not a lot of people would actually want to become a pornstar, so they won't really bother to research about how to get in the business.
The gay porn site gained notoriety this week after a video made in featuring Capewell, who plays for the Penrith Panthers, surfaced online. The forward was working as a carpenter and playing local footy at the time while struggling for cash. The video pictured was made after Kurt Capewell, then 20, responded to an ad to make money doing a photo shoot for a sports clothing and underwear company. The clip of the year-old State of Origin hero was recorded in when he was working as a carpenter, playing local footy, and struggling for cash. An actor who worked for the same company that NRL star Kurt Capewellmade a video for has spoken out about 'dodgy' tactics.
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.
