For 24 year old gay porn star Travis Irons, walking on to a porn set is pretty normal for him. It’s something he has done many times and he is quite comfortable with it. But for someone who is considering getting into the business, there are many unanswered questions.
Travis has kindly shared some tips and advice for guys who are interested in starting out and need some guidance. His first piece of advice – reality check at the door.
“Don’t think it is just sex on camera, and don’t think you’re going to be the next biggest thing either,” advised Travis. “Yes, you will get told to ‘do this’ and to ‘do that’ and you just need to go with it. “
It’s good advice. Listen to the director and your shoot will go much smoother.
“There is a lot of directing going on,” Travis explained. “It’s actual work. If you are serious, see if you can go on set and watch from behind the scenes before you get in to it to see what it’s like.”
On the day of your shoot you have to get ready long before you even arrive on set.
“It’s a good idea to use a douche bottle before,” Travis explained. “There’s nothing more annoying than having to stop in the middle of a scene.”
Travis also jokingly advised not to eat Mexican food beforehand either. Personal experience? Perhaps.
Once arriving to your filming location remember to turn your phone to vibrate and leave it securely locked up with the rest of your belongings. There’s no need to have your phone with you. It will just distract you and the others on set.
“I’m not really a size queen, so I’m not going to day a big cock,” said Travis as he described what makes a good top. “I would say really good kissing and holding tight.”
So what does Travis think a good bottom is?
“It’s more than just laying there,” Travis explained. “You have to get into it. Be clean.”
With these few tips, Travis is confident that you will be off to a good start on your first appearance on camera.
“Just be prepared for the whole world to see you naked,” Travis said half-heartedly.
So there you have it – advice on getting into the world of gay adult entertainment from Travis Irons.
