How Male Talent Prepare For Porn Shoots

It's basically an all-day workout.

After receiving tonnes of questions asking questions about male talent on porn sets such as:

“what happens on a porn set?”

“How can I become a pornstar?”

“How much really goes into a porn shoot? Isn’t it just 1 hour then ‘pop’ and move on?”

To provide some insight on this, we enlisted the help of porn star Ryan Mclane who provided us with this little piece on how he prepares for porn shoots every day as a male performer.

It’s 4:40 am and my alarm goes off. I don’t care which sound option you choose, when it goes off before 5 am, it’s annoying. I use the restroom, brush my teeth, splash some cold water on my face and hop in my Jeep. I’ve got Mike and Mike on the radio. Protein bar, no sugar. About 12 minutes into my drive and I’m on the 405 freeway. 5:25 am is the cutoff. If you don’t make it onto the 405 from the OC before 5:30 the traffic starts to get real, real bad. That’s not the way you want to start your day.

I make it up to LA by roughly 6:05 am. I beat the traffic. Now time to back track and get some of that lost sleep, so I park my Jeep and go to sleep for about an hour. An hour later, another alarm. This one I don’t mind. It’s go time. I now head to the gym. I always want to get in a small workout before a scene. Nothing too crazy, where I will have a lack of energy before I perform, but I’m not just walking through it either. I do about 20 minutes of stretching, then a few cardio exercises. Same ones every time. Now I’m awake and equally of import, so is my body! I shower and I’m off to set.

This is the start to my day every day that I have a scene with a call time before 11 am. Which is about 75% of the time. That’s one thing I think most people don’t realize is that, most porn is shot in the morning and afternoons. Due to this I always consider the beginning of my “preparing for a scene” to take place the night before the shoot. You have to have your wardrobe all ready and packed. No, wardrobe is not provided, we use our own clothing. Not necessarily our day to day clothes, but rather as most of us like to say our, “porn clothes”. You also need to make sure that you have food or snacks to take to set. There is no guarantee that there will be food on set and the absolute last thing you want to do is try to perform a high intense physical activity when you are lacking energy from a nutritional stand point.

The keys to putting yourself in position for a successful day are always pretty simple. Make sure you are well rested and fed. You need to be prepared whether that be in regard to wardrobe, or having your lines memorized. And always be on time.
