Casting Couch: Porn Opportunities for Queers

by Jiz Lee on / Queer Porn

I’m often asked “how can I get into queer porn”? Well, here’s some opportunities! A while ago I wrote the blog post “Getting into Porn, the Queer Way” with tips for people interested in applying to porn work. Looking back on it, I still think it’s pretty relevant! Give it a read if it’s your first time thinking about getting into porn performance.

Ready to apply? Here are some upcoming/ongoing opportunities that are either local to San Francisco or specifically open to queer performers.

CrashPadSeries.com
Shine Louise Houston’s queer website based on The Crash Pad, where almost anything goes! Perfect for couples looking to shoot porn together. I’ve shot with them a bunch and always have a great time! (Sign up to be a level 3 member to see Behind the Scenes videos and hear why the models decided to do porn, and what they thought about the experience!)

Kink.com
Some of the sites run by Kink.com hire new performers if they present as femme cisgender women (mostly submissives), and dominant transwomen.
My personal preference are sites run by queer directors Princess Donna (WiredPussy.com and PublicDisgrace.com and Tomcat (FuckingMachines.com and TSSeduction.com).  I know some queers who do their cam shows as well.

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES:

YOU! We’re queer, we Do Things Ourselves. We’re resourceful, and creative and think outside the box. There’s lots of technology out there available to new producers and there’s many ways queer performers can find opportunities to make money having sex on film. Try webcam, create your own videos, approach directors about upcoming projects.

Please let me know if there are more production companies that are specifically welcoming to queer porn performers — I’ll add them!

Outside of USA:

Europe:

Pink & White Productions is now distributed in Europe through Sexclusivitaeten. Check out where the films are carried to see if there is local stuff going on.
http://pinkwhite.biz/PWWP/pink-white-distribution-deal-with-europes-sexclusivitaeten/

Amsterdam – Abby Winters (though beware, a femme (ciswoman) friend of mine who is very known in the porn world worked for them and said it was not as “authentic” or sex-positive an experience as one would believe.

Barcelona – Erika Lust of Lust Films – I really want to work with Erika! She’s based in Barcelona. Much of what she shoots is heterosexual although I’ve seen a lesbian scene and think there may be room depending on the project.

Germany – Check out the folks involved with the Berlin Porn Film Festival. When I worked with Cheryl Dunye in Berlin, there was some interest in queer porn there.

France – Emilie Jouvet – She is the director of ONE NIGHT STAND and just finished TOO MUCH PUSSY.

UK – Kitty Stryker was telling me of a new queer porn group… someone please let me know how it goes, or invite me to perform! 🙂

Bruce LaBruce – Seems to work with Cisgender Gay Men, although I’ve heard he’s looking for transguys and butch/masculine presenting genderqueers. I would love to work with him. Who wouldn’t?

Asia:

Please let me know? I have heard of fun queer dance clubs and live sex shows but would share links for erotica.

South Africa:

As far as I know, nothing queer. Anyone have news?

South America:

Brazil has a banging dyke community, and has proved to be a location for some mainstream porn companies, but I’m not sure if there is queer porn.

Do you have a lead? Comment here. 🙂
