The Three Types Of Women In Porn

Kurt Lockwood posts on MySpace: After having worked in the adult industry for as long as I have, I have come to recognize three distinctive categories of women who work in the adult industry. And when I say women who work in the adult industry I mean as on-camera porn stars NOT directors, sales, etc. (It should be noted that these categoric distillations have come from over five years and nearly fourteen hundred scenes experience. Translation? I know what the fuck I’m talking about here.)

I have divided the categories into three parts: #1 The Ho, #2 The Pro, #3 The Throw.

#1 THE HO:

Now, I know it is very fashionable these days to consider the word “ho” demeaning. But we who work as porn stars are not offended by being called “ho’s” or “whores,” for that matter. I fuck on-camera for money. I am therefore a form of “male whore.” It is who we are. Guilty as charged. We’re rubber, you’re glue… Whatever. The difference is, unlike mainstreamers (civilians as we like to call y’all, haha), we in porn feel no shame about being called “ho’s” whatsover. A “Good Porn Whore” in our business is top notch! It’s a term you will hear around the adult biz a lot, actually. The good porn “Ho” is the best kind of woman in porn. Think Sondra Romain, think Jada Fire, think Harmony, think Katja Kassim, etc. These are girls who LOVE TO FUCK. They have no hang-ups about their jobs as adult actresses, whatsover. They are sweet, passionate women who love to kiss, to connect and to have full-on firebrand lust on camera. These are career-minded, wealthy, strong models who get their rocks off, get their checks and go home happy as can be, no harm, no foul. They keep their bodies in gym-shape and their minds tip-top, too. These are women you can GUARANTEE aren’t crying themselves to sleep at night over any kind of useless guilt from that day’s sex scene. If only these were the ONLY type of female performer in this business, we as an industry would be able to guarantee you as a pornsumer, a triumph deluxe with every single porn release. Ye porn fans and industry members alike know exactly what awesome girls I am talking about here, like Belladonna, Marie Love, Gwen Diamond, Mika Tan, Nyomi Marcella, Britney and Whitney Stevens. Thank God, for these girls in the business. They are the ones who keep this business fun. I wish I could clone each and every one of them. They are each worth their weight in gold! Ladies, I salute all you great ones, and if I didn’t mention you here, I apologize, you know who you are and we the industry loves you for being the good porn “ho’s” you are!

Here’s where it starts to slide…

#2. “The Pro.”

There is an unfortunate wave of new girls in the biz right now that fill this type to a “t.” When I say “Pro” I don’t mean as in “Professional” I mean as in “Prostitute.” Now, one could argue, “What’s the difference between a whore and a prostitute?” Fair question. Well, we “whores” LOVE sex and getting paid for it like we do is just the icing on the cake. “Pro”stitutes? Forget it. It’s all about the money. “Pro”stitutes are big fakes just using the adult business. The cold bitches who fit this category “Pro”stitutes are the ones who won’t kiss (yep, that’s right, there’s actually girls who will do anal sex but NOT kiss. It’s the Julia Roberts Pretty Woman philosophy of it being “too intimate.” Yes, and Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman said that as a PROSTITUTE! Hence, “The Pro,” attitude.) This “Pro”stitute type of girl does all she can to NOT connect with the other models male OR female usually because she has a boyfriend who has somehow convinced himself that only when she is kissing is she truly cheating, (yet the pop shot on her face somehow doesn’t count, haha. Actually, some “Pro”stitutes even refuse to take the industry standard facial. If you can believe that one!) When the cameraman stops for a second to clean his lense? The “Pro”stitute mentally goes to her “happy place” in her mind and completely shuts down, she doesn’t move, she doesn’t moan, she doesn’t make a peep. One second later when the camera is up again? All of the sudden “the Pro”stitute completely fakes it, overdoes the screaming and completely ruins the scene. Directors HATE that. Besides, pornsumers are wayyy more savvy these days. They can see these fakes like these from a mile away. I can work with these types of girls no problem because I have to, but I hate it and so does every other male porn star and crew. Secretly, “the Pro”stitute girls think they are smarter than all the other girls, that they are prettier than all the other girls and that they are ultimately higher or better than the other girls because they “fake” it. They also secrety think that they are gonna be the “next Jenna” (which NO ONE will EVER be.) This adds to their superior, distant attitude. “The Pro”stitute chick likes to talk endlessly about herself, very loudly and name drop all the semi-famous people she knows and announces constantly to the cast and crew of how quickly she has to fake, I mean rush through the scene to get back to her oh-so-celebrity life. Whatever. I really should name names here but everybody knows who these “Pro”stitue types are, or at least can recognize them quite easilly and everyone hates them, equally. Unfortunately, a lot of these type of girls stick around a long time (primarily because they escort on the side to subsidize their porn careers and then they carry over that hooker attitude to the set. Like I said, “Pro”stitutes.)

#3. The “Throw.”

As in “Throw-Away the footage, this bitch fucking sucks!” Ugggh. The “Throw” Away is the WORST girl in the business to work with. “The Throw” Away hates herself, hates her job, hates you, hates everything. “The Throw” Away shows up to set really late (if she shows up at all), she’s tweeking her ass off (meaning on crystal methamphetamine or speed), or is passing out from some other intoxicant. A 45 minute scene with “The Throw” Away can take HOURS because “The Throw” Away likes to run to the bathroom every twenty minutes to do a quick “bump.” “The Throw” Away absolutely will not kiss, cannot hold a position, hasn’t “prepared” for her anal scene, has staff infections from all the “tweek,” her eyes are wide and distant, sweats a lot, has a yeast infection, is on the phone to her “ride” (aka loser boyfriend) every five minutes. What is odd about “The Throw” Away is that this type is found at the top in some contract girls (or girls who WERE contract girls before their “Throw” Away bullshit got them canned), and the “Throw” Away can be found at the very bottom of gonzo as well. These girls don’t give a shit. Either because they think they are too high up the ladder and are therefore unreproachable or they are so far down the ladder that it really doesn’t matter.) I should really name names here as well, but honesly, this category is such a no-brainer to people actually in the business that naming names in this category would be overkill and akin to kicking someone when they are down (whether they realize they are down or not.)

Well there you have it. The three types. The really unfortunate thing is that as a male porn star, you only get to work with the top tier of girls, “The Ho’s”, like half of the time and the other half is pretty equally divided between the “Pros” and the “Throws.” You really earn your chops in this business as a male porn star when you learn to recognize what you are given and still manage to negotiate the hottest possible scene you could manage from what you were given. Like I said, what’s upsetting is that the largest growing demographic seems to be the “Pro’s.” They look good, they fake good, but I believe that we as porn manufacturers, from performer to sales, have a responsibility to the pornsumer. They aren’t buying the porn to see who can fake it the best, they want REAL lust exchange. That’s what we are BEING PAID TO DO. But the “Pro”stitutes are stealthy. They pretend to the agents and the company owners and production managers who cast them that they are all sex addicts then they get on set and phone it in. But I think that the industry is on to these fakes. I recently heard a story where Manuel was directing a movie and the girl said she wouldn’t kiss him and he cancelled the scene and sent her home. This would’ve been unheard of a few years ago but it really has come to that if we are to keep our product honest with the implied contract of the purchasing pornsumer.

Unfortunately, there will always be the third type “the Throw-Away.” Porn will always be a refuge for those lost souls seeking a fast buck down a dead end alley. I have found that the adult industry can be much more than that but indeed, it can be just that if that’s all YOU make of it.

Lastly, in conclusion, I want to sing one final chorus of praise for all the women who work in adult as the class-A “Ho’s.” One scene with any one of these sizzling hot ladies who love their job erases every single experience with a “Pro”stitute or a “Throw-Away” type in this business. They make the biz great! Long may they rock!
