Stunt Cock: My Dip into Amateur Porn

I was a stunt cock. And principle photographer. And lighting tech. And sound tech. I held all of these positions while simultaneously trying to hold many more positions. I worked in amateur Internet porn.

During two separate relationships, the person I was involved with decided to strut her stuff online. In both instances, the motivation was making money in any way possible. The two eras were about 3 years apart, and in that time much changed in the industry. When “Fiona” started her site, the industry was still at a high point and she did quite well. She made a decent amount of money in a short time and had a significant fanbase. “Courtney,” on the other hand, launched her site when the amateur boom of internet porn had begun to wane. There was much competition for customers and so many free sites had popped up that she did not succeed in making much money with her site.

Two different sites. Two different rates of success. One (usually) dissatisfied cock.

It isn’t a new story to say that the guys can have it a bit rough when it comes to shooting sex on film. Sure, there’s the basic idea that the dude needs to be hard and ready whenever needed. Honestly, that wasn’t the difficulty I had—unless it was accompanied by one of these other factors. No, the hard part is if the guy has to perform any other duties other than performing. I voluntarily took on all of these roles, but the voluntary took on a 'voluntold' after a short time. You imagine that getting into porn is going to be fun and sexy. Sure, there's still a lot of sex, but it certainly isn't the most satisfying sex ever. Here are the many different things I had to do, while at the same time maintaining an erection.

  • Try to light an intimate scene when you’re part of that scene. Try to anticipate bad shadows, ass placement or unpleasant tummy folds.
  • Try to focus and then set the timer on the digital camera and then run back into the scene. Do all of that and remember the shadows, the ass and the folds.
  • Try to encourage the star of the shoot that the pose she’s doing might be flattering and sexy but isn’t porn-worthy. Neither “Fiona” nor “Courtney” were offering a softcore site but they always reverted to pretty poses. The words “You have to spread your legs and show your pussy” came out of my mouth more than once with each.

It may seem like a power imbalance, but it was moreso just strong personalities colliding. I have been a fan of porn for a long time, with more than just a passing interest in the business and aesthetics of the industry. I know a lot more about porn and what makes good porn than either of them did. They were trying to look as pretty and attractive to potential customers and protect their “images.” This made them protective and subsequently tense. That tension would work against us making the shoot even harder.

These are the reasons why a stunt cock might wilt under pressure.
