Own Porn Company

I have been running a porn production studio since the past 15 years and as I write this informative blog post with disarming candor, I would like to recall the audacious question devoid of any chest thumping drama that made me start my own porn company: How do I start my own porn company? Before taking you through oodles of insights, I would like to say that I have worked with over 2000 adult models. The unshakeable aspect of our porn production studio has always been the guiding ethical principles which we avowed to implement in policy and execution, letter and spirit.

Own Porn Company

Here is a brief note on things you need to know before launching your own porn production studio:

Do You Have Answers?

Starting a porn production studio is easier said than done. Ensure that you have answers to the following questions:

  • What kinds of fetish do you intend / plan to shoot / produce?
  • What is your budget?
  • Where are you located?
  • How many scenes do you plan to shoot / produce per year?
  • Do you have a content production strategy?
  • Have you hired the correct models?

To hire models for your adult entertainment venture, you can reach out to agents. When we started our own porn production studio, we had crystal clear answers to the aforementioned questions. We also hired quite a few models through various model referral programs. Web listing and classifieds are also worthwhile resources.  Apart from these resources, we also reached out to a few licensed prostitution centers in Los Angeles, Nevada and California. We ended up hiring quite a few voluptuous models.

Keep Your Models Abreast of What’s In-Store

More often than not, many models are aware of droning predictability of porn. However, the onus is on you to keep them thoroughly informed about what your studio expects from them. It is likely that a few models may not be comfortable with certain sex positions. For instance, we had (read have) a model who was uncomfortable with anal. We treated her concerns with utmost respect and today, she is still with us. Of course, she started her career at the age of 25. Initially, we casted her as a teenager in GF porn.  Today, she continues to work with us in MILF category.

Sextpanther models

Whenever we recruit models, we make everything clear – right from the sex toys being used to the frequency of payments. In case of any conflicting expectations, we negotiate on reasonable grounds. We ask perfectly relatable questions such as the following:

  • What if your father / mother / brother / any other family member finds your porn videos / images on the internet?
  • Are you willing to go on a strict diet regimen?

We keep the porn models well informed on real risks. A few models back out of the deals. A few others request for some time to evaluate all the risks and benefits. We give them enough time to mull over the situation.

Respect Your Models

For us, porn models are not overtly sexualized objects. They are human beings just like you and me. Hence, the underlying principles of humanity, respect and decorum should be practiced. I have seen quite a few bossy production studios in which models were treated with disdain. This is scary. Models will be able to meet your expectations only when you collaborate and treat them with respect.

Give Them Training

Our concerns emanate from the fact that not all models are experienced. Quite a few recruited models may be amateurs and first-timers. Things can get certainly overwhelming for them. Models may be required to play different roles such as a GF, sister, teacher etc. Unless and until they go through an intensive training program, you cannot use them to your advantage. At each and every stage of the shoot they participate in, models are expected to know what happens next. This lends a sense of ownership and entitlement. Models get empowered and will be able to rise up to your expectations.

Give Your Models Some Time to Breathe

Porn can get really scary at times. While porn is a treat to watch, it may not be a pleasant experience to the cast involved. When I was working as an assistant director for a reputed porn production studio, I happened to witness disgraceful porn shoots. A porn actress was involved in a gangbang with 25 males. The shoot lasted for 2 hours. The model was exhausted and eventually, she passed out. Gangbangs are energy-sapping pursuits. Models should be given enough time to relax and recoup.

We give a relaxation time of at-least 2 hours for a shoot which generally lasts anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes.  We address all the moral and ethical compunctions with grace.

Give Your Models Some Leeway

Despite all the well-intentioned recommendations and well-informed pre-joining sessions, a few models may back out after the first shoot. This happened with one of our models. After the porn was shot, she came back after 3 days and requested us to not air the content. We not only returned her money but also original content. As a part of our ethical practices, we allow a cooling-off period of 5 days. Any model who intends to change her mind and discontinue her services can do so within this cooling-off period.

Evaluate their Content Removal Claims

Content removal claims are in-evitable in the rhythms of adult entertainment industry. When models are in their late 20s or early 30s, they are generally passionate about making quick money. As a consequence, they sign-up for porn. They ditch the industry after making enough bucks. Subsequently, when they get hitched, they begin to experience moral qualms such as:

  • What if my BF finds out my true identity?
  • What if my new employer finds out my whereabouts in the porn industry?

We have had a few cases in which a couple of models contacted us after 5 years and asked us to remove the content. It is a known fact that we often reply in good faith. That being said, we have our own standard procedure. First up, the model is required to make a detailed submission, elucidating the reasons behind her content removal claims. The submission is then sent to a panel which carefully evaluates the reasons. If the panel vouches for the content removal option, we will take down the content almost immediately.

In most of the cases, we limit access to the porn content by country, by location etc. Sometimes, we remove specific shoots. For all intents and purposes, we respect the ethical imperatives of our models.

Pay Them Fair

We never discriminate between male and female porn performers. Whoever the performer is, we pay him based on his / her working hours, dedication and number of hours committed. We generally follow a 5-day payment cycle. Let me explain this- if porn is shot on Monday, its corresponding payment is cleared on Friday. Again, this sits well with our 5-day cooling-off period.

Say No to Child Porn

Say No Child Porn

Porn is pretty and cosmetic. Behind the seemingly pretty exterior of adult entertainment industry hides the murky child pornography industry. Child pornography is illegal. We respect the law of our nation and expect you to follow the same. Before shooting porn with your recruited cast, verify their age. Check their official documents. Do not violate the norms and don’t let others violate the rules and regulations. If you happen to know any porn production studio that is in the business of child pornography, immediately report the issue to porn reporting hotlines

No Spamming

We are often approached by third-parties to reveal the email-ids and contact numbers of our models. We do not entertain such things. Some third-parties offer us attractive packages to let go of the models’ information. Again, we reject such offers without any second thought.

Do What’s Right

Our greatest strength lies in doing what’s right. Yes, there have been a plenty of deep, dark and heart-wrenching moments. However, we never compromised on doing what’s right for the people, employees, society and nation. Our conscience has always guided us to follow this principle: Do what’s right and not what’s profitable.

Make Sense of Re-bills

Many porn sites fail to issue mea culpa when it comes to re-bills. In other words, customers generally provide their credit card details so as to avail the services of subscription based porn sites. Once they get uncomfortable with the services of subscription-based porn sites, the customers intend to opt out and unsubscribe. Unfortunately, not many porn sites allow customers to do so. Re-billing is done every month and the dissatisfied customer keeps losing his / her plastic money.

In adult entertainment industry, transparency in re-billing is absent. Our porn production studio is a marked departure from the status quo. We make it super easy for our delighted customers to cancel re-bills at any time.

Porn Viewing is Left to the Discretion of Our Customers

Of course, there are many websites which warn viewers about the explicit sexual content. There are entry filters which help audiences take the right decision of either viewing / not viewing the adult content hosted on the websites. We follow similar train of thoughts. We do not produce certain categories of porn such as abuse, rape, extreme fisting etc. Violence in porn is never encouraged and we expect readers and entrepreneurs like you to follow the same.

Get Yourself a Lawyer

Adult entertainment industry is full of loopholes and red tape. As an integral part of your journey, you are required to traverse all such nasty bumps and the journey is never a pleasant one. People rely too much on Wiki and Quora answers. Not that such resources aren’t reliable, but the answers are hardly complete. By getting yourself a lawyer who is fully aware of custodian laws and laws pertaining to porn, you can play it safe. It is important to maintain all the health records of your models. Get yourself hold of the STD reports of your models. Undoubtedly, you don’t want somebody with herpes ruining your shoot and business.

Strategize on Distribution

Adult entertainment industry is huge. Its product mix ranges from normal pictures and DVDs to mobile apps. While you shouldn’t confine hosting your content to free websites such as PornHub.com and xvideos.com, you should definitely start your own porn site. If you want answers to questions such as how to start your own porn site?, we suggest you to read this insightful and extremely informative blog post.
