How do I find adult talent?

Searching for Porn Actors
Adult Content casting Magnify

Talent is what you want, good directors can get the best out of adult talent.

There are different ways to find adult performers. Craigslist used to be a great source, however, human trafficking concerns generally have stopped that. Luckily, some third-party tools exist like Sex Work Finder and SexyJobs. Note, if you're filming yourself or your partner only, you don't need to worry about this. If you’re filming yourself and amateurs, you’ll need to have a way of soliciting new amateurs, meaning you're the talent scout. If you're filming yourself and an actor, you’ll probably need to have a third-party adult talent agency or use a talent scout. For filming other actors, you will need to use third-party and talent scouts.

  • Third-Party Porn Casting

    #IMG:Doc;If you need help finding adult actors for your porn production, third-party agencies offer a variety of options for hiring adult performers. Adult performer agencies serve as a liaison between adult actors and clients who hire them. You can pay the agency an agreed-upon fee for talent, hiring one adult actor or several, depending on how many you need for your porn production. Be clear with the agency on the acts you need to be performed and the age and look of the talent that you want. You can find licensed adult acting agencies listed in the directory maintained by the Adult Performance Artists Guild.

    When you work with an agency or scout, here are some things to look for:

    • Licensed and accredited. Make sure it’s a legitimate, licensed company or scout that you’re working with.
    • Transparent pricing. Don’t work with agencies or scouts who don’t give you a direct answer on fees, and get everything in writing regarding costs and fees.
    • Good reviews. Seek referrals and recommendations for adult agencies and scouts. Check out review sites to see what people have to say about working with different agencies, and don’t work with any that have excessively poor reviews.
