You’re cool if you wanna finish like a porn star. But if you want to make it your profession, um…

According to this cynical and sometimes graphic blog post, don’t even think about it.

A porn star gets paid to get laid and gets his freak on with some extraordinarily gifted ladies in more ways than one. But here are five reasons why you’re better off having sex for enjoyment rather than a sporadic, if not risky pay cheque:

Boner Injections – Wrong wrong wrong. This is just wrong. Ouch. Keep that needle away from our Johnson.

Unfortunately for porn stars, the pressure to perform often necessitates caverject injections. That’s like steroid shots for your penis. Funny, VigRX Oil performs the same function and it’s alot more fun…

STD Central – Swapping sex partners might be sexy, but they come with baggage. Roughly 66% of porn performers are believed to have herpes. The reason? Porn with condoms just don’t sell like au natural.

The Pay Sucks – Wanna make millions? Head to Wall Street. Male porn performers make roughly one third to half the pay of their female counterparts. Part of it’s a case of supply and demand – there are more male performers in the business than female.

That said, gay porn pays very well, in which case, if that’s your thing, go nuts.

Sex Becomes Work – You’re not wearing a suit and tie to the work place (unless you’re in one of those lame porn flicks with a story that starts in the office), but come on man, you f*#k for a livin’ on camera. After a while it’s like, yawn. Next! And some of the fetishes they pick up are…uh…we’ll let that sit.

No Pension, Mate – Got a back up plan when the career heads south? There’s no 401(K) in the business, man, you’re working from job to job.

All this isn’t to say that porn doesn’t have its place. We’re just sayin that you’re better off, you know, like meeting women and procreating for pleasure ;)
