It's a very good 1st anal ride for the front-cover lass. I'm now a big fan of her big sexy ass.

For women, it's their looks and their willingness to fuck.

Women don't even need to be experienced or good in bed. Because they are usually paired up with very experienced male studs, who have nailed hundreds, if not thousands of women. Such a guy will nail his lady's nice ass really well, even if she is only 18 years old and it's her first time, as long as she spreads her nice ass for him.

But for guys, their ability to perform is everything. Ron Jeremy wasn't exactly a good-looking guy in his heyday as a porn-stud. But he was pretty good at nailing the asses of his lasses, and that's why he was so successful as a porn-stud.

Heterosexual porn-fans basically want to see a really good-looking lady get nailed really well. Which requires the lady to be really good looking and her guy to be really good at nailing her pussy or ass.

Well, I'm gonna go off one one of my little tangents here.

Pretty much anyone physically capable and willing have sex on camera can be a porn performer.

Being a porn star requires a lot more. You have be more than pretty/handsome and a good fuck to be a star.

For women, you also have to have the gift of gab. You have to be able to make the media rounds, come off well in interviews, etc. It also helps if you have proper modelling skills. You're more likely to get the box cover if the person taking the production stills can get a good shot of you.

Then, you also have to be your own social marketer. It helps to be on and monitoring your accounts throughout the day, interacting with fans, finding that balance between pitching your product and just having fun.

And then there's creating content for your own website that resonates with your fans.

Some of the more successful women are also on the road a lot, making appearances as feature dancers and other such events. For contract performers, this usually mandatory.

Finally, there's all the stuff one has to do to stay looking good. Hours and hours at the gym/yoga/running/whatever, taking care one one's skin, waxing, etc etc.

It's a full time job with a lot of moving parts. That's why longevity is rare.

For guys, endurance is a huge part. They work more than the women (being a stud pays less) so they have to be in top shape. They have to, day in, day out (sometimes twice a day) shag for hours on end, pop on command, and look good doing it.

Like with the girls, many are total gym rats by necessity. Many of the guys also have to wax, and take care of other cosmetic stuff.

There are other things I'm missing, I'm sure.

I'd love to see some performers jump in on this.

When talking of qualifications isn't it time for one of the numerous Californian universities to start formal training and research? I don't know about their theoretical knowledge but impressionwise wouldn't Dia Zerva be a great professor and Annie Cruz a great lecturer in fucking?
Mostly kidding, but really it's an industry, so why not?

Lily Cade has an interesting take on what you have to do to be a male porn star and why it's hard:

The ability to arouse seems to have been ignored here. If this had no meaning then skinny models should show up more often for an instant protein shake.

For long term success, mental stability shouldn't be underestimated.

I think you might have wanted "You Will Never be a Male Performer" http://www.lilycade.com/2014/03/you-will-never-be-a-male-performer/

Looks are important to getting hired in porn, but so are a lot of other things. In most jobs, being good at social interactions is crucial, and porn is no exception. If people like you, they'll hire you. If people can't stand being around you, they won't. If the other talent likes fucking you, you're a lot more likely to get requested and thus to work. If you show up on time, do good scenes, and don't cause drama, directors are much more likely to call. A porn star has to be able to manage her fanbase too - the more popular she is, the more likely she is to get hired, and for better projects. Actually being good at the job helps, though there sort of an inverse relationship between how traditionally pretty someone is and the extent to which she has to be a genuinely good performer in order to work. (I'm not saying pretty girls are bad performers, but rather that the less you fit a standard model, the more crucial it is to be a good performer. Someone like Bonnie Rotten - or myself for that matter - would never have been able to sustain a career being a soft, low energy fuck). Last but not least, you have to really, truly, like this shit. Otherwise is starts to wear on you and your performance and professionalism suffer.

I would have thought that good looks, hard work and performing well are attributes that may put a performer in a better position to become recognised as a pornstar. She will appear in more scenes and gain more exposure as a result of her efforts. But quantity or even quality of performances is no reliable predictor of stardom.

Stardom is a much more fickle thing than that. It is the porn-consuming public, the fan base, that determines whether or not someone attains that title. Some performers just appeal more to a wider audience. How do you measure that charisma that some performers have that attracts us so much? Why Marilyn Monroe, specifically? Why did she fascinate us so much to the point of worldwide adoration?

We become fascinated with our pornstars, or at a personal level, our "porn crushes". We want to know everything about them and follow them slavishly. Who do I need to see in her next scene, regardless of what the rest of the movie may be like? Who just does it for me? Whose name makes me sit up at attention when I skim across it somewhere?

To be a pornstar, a performer must gain a substantial fan base who want to follow her every exploit and elevate her to a level of adoration that goes beyond her performances alone.

Let's not forget a requirement for most male performers is a Ph.D. (Pretty huge dick! Hahahaha!)

I guess for ladies, that would be pussy having dick, unless they're just into the softcore stuff or something.
