So You Want to Get into Amateur Porn? (sNSFW)

Where to upload: "Extralunchmoney.com and Mygirlfund.com are the two content sites we use," said Helm. "I have also heard good things about Clips4sale.com and Streammate.com, but I haven't set up accounts there yet. Every site has different verification that is almost always a pain in the ass. Everyone requires an ID and then a picture of you holding a piece of paper with your username, a copy of model releases and at least ten cooked examples of your favorite elbow macaroni brands, etc."

Camming versus content: There are two ways to go about your amateur pornography career. You can submit content for download or you can set up live Webcam. Content is good because it's passive, steady income, but you might also want to consider a few live sessions. Connecting with customers is important, and taking requests is a good way to ensure repeat business. Any porn actress on Twitter will tell you that being accessible is one of your No. 1 priorities. Which brings us to...

People are going to see this: My old songwriting partner once said, "The worst thing about putting out an album is that someone has to hear it." That goes double with pornography. People are going to see your genitals, the face you make at orgasm, everything. It is a statistical impossibility that no one you have ever met or known will not stumble across your work. You have to be honest with yourself from the get-go whether or not you are entirely comfortable with that, and what the repercussions of working in the sex trade might be.

The money: Amateur pornography is exactly like writing... how much you make depends entirely on how much content you generate and where you put it in (Zing!). Here is a really wonderful breakdown of conversations between cam models on what you can expect to make in terms of dollars per hour. Long story short, a dedicated model or couple that builds a following can expect $75 an hour or more with luck.

You can even go full time. Reportedly the owners of Wifey's World make close to or more than six figures annually from their amateur productions. There is a danger of being burned out sexually, though. "Some people can live off of it," said Helm. "We don't because we don't put in the massive amount of time it takes to live off of it. It's more like supplemental income for us, something to do because it's fun, we're kinky, twisted fucks, and because it brings in some cash here and there. It takes the edge off the bills for sure."

Always good to raise the awareness of what amateurs get up to behind closed doors - we have a fun & friendly community who enjoy posting images of themselves (www.youcanrate.me), and they do so of their own choosing - no one forces them - they enjoy it. Charlotte x

Scripts for porn always make me laugh. A friend of mine sent me a shot of the actual script, where after a funny scene, the exact words for the sex to start was 'SEX HAPPENS!'.
