Hi, I’m British Porn director Anna Span. I’ve run my own production company for six years and have had over 125 scenes aired to date on TVX and The Adult Channel.

I have hardcore DVD’s available and had a book published called ‘Erotic Home Video’ by Anna Span which explains how couples can make their own home porn films.

Take pride in your performance and learn from others on how to improve. Add your own personal touch/speciality to help make you stand out from the crowd.

The UK is still way behind the US and European in terms of quality of performance.

A good porn star will take pride in their appearance and not just rely on being the ‘new’ face.

This means going to the gym, keeping yourself clean, getting your hair done, etc (this includes blokes, too!). In short, I know what it takes to make a good pornstar as well as the pitfalls that you need to avoid…

Consider the following :

  • Your images, once out, will be worldwide forever. They cannot be removed by producers at your request if you later change your mind (we sell the rights on to other companies). Do take time to think of the consequences. e.g. Will you ever want to teach children, etc?
  • To be a good performer requires good looks, perseverance and a large dollop of interpersonal skills. Are you good with people, easy going and most of all, reliable (the reliable ones get most of the work)?
  • A good porn star will take pride in their appearance and not just rely on being the ‘new’ face. This means going to the gym, keeping yourself clean, getting your hair done, etc (this includes blokes, too!).
  • The industry in the UK has recently moved to a health standard of an HIV and full STD certificate with proof of identification on it. THIS MUST BE UNDER 30 DAYS OLD ON THE DAY OF THE SHOOT!!! Decent producers should not work with you without this paperwork. Tests are either free, cheap or up to £180 per month depending on where you live and how organised you are about getting booked in advance. Don’t bother getting a test until you get on an agency’s books or have been promised work. The tests take a week to develop. Always check the other performer’s tests yourself.
  • Take pride in your performance and learn from other performers on how to improve. Add your own personal touch/speciality to help make you stand out from the crowd. The UK is still way behind the US and European in terms of quality of performance (not all of you – some are really great!). We need to improve in order to compete internationally, which should mean more cash for all you stars and wannabes at the end of the day.

Do you want to be a porn star — WOMEN

a. Nina Hartley once said “Don’t do at work what you wouldn’t do at home for free. Know your boundaries and stick to them”. In other words, just because you may want to do something in the future doesn’t mean that you have to do it all in the beginning. b. Apply to all the model agencies plus individual production companies listed on this site with a head and shoulder photo + full nude (standing) photo.

Don’t send a million variations of photos as this just clogs up e-mail addresses unnecessarily. c. Industry video rates are around: £250 girl/girl, £300 Boy/Girl, £350 Boy/Girl + Anal, £400 Double Penetration or more (circa autumn 2004). Plus reasonable travel expenses with lunch provided (usually). d. There’s a market for all types of women big and small, old and young, so don’t be put off. And finally… If you are still keen to try out, I employ newcomers on my shoots. I am always looking for attractive, confident performers who have good bodies.

Please note: I am not currently looking for men. Send one good head and shoulders picture + one full length body nude picture to: anna@easyote.co.uk or, if you prefer, try the other model agencies and producers, many of whom are listed in the BGAFD links section. This is not a conclusive list and my experience is strictly with video but I hope it helps.
