Being a porn actor is considered a profession?

Being a porn actor is considered a profession?
A profession is a vocation that requires some type of learning and/or special training(well at least thats the popular concept of profession).
So tell me is being a porn actress a profession?.... the ability to act isn't required and the only thing that matters it's that they can have sex(something anyone with working body parts can do).
The only difference between amateur porn and "professional porn" is the quality of the cameras, the funding, and the number of fans.
And on the other hand modeling it's considering a profession and it share some similarities with porn actresses(and some of the actors),
both need to be attractive, both need to watch their health and figure, both involve in taking orders, both don't need to talk much or be
smart, and in both careers many of their workers are subject of plastic operations in order to stay in the business.
But let's not forget that in the porn industry has clearly double standard depending on the gender of their actors.
So it's a profession for the actress or not the actors? Because the only porn actor that I knew achieved fame was that fat guy from surreal life.
So tell me what do you think?

I think you couldn't be more wrong and clearly just have some prejudices about the porn industry.

Thank you!!![Image: admire2-onion-head-emoticon.gif]…but to be honest I need a more detailed response of why you think that. Come on Napoleon you always with your "back up with evidence what you are saying speech."
It's a pain in the ass sometimes but for the first time I'm gonna take advantage of that. Come on tell me why do you say that.[Image: payup-onion-head-emoticon.gif]

If you require fame as a litmus test then the vast majority of us are without a profession.

They are paid for their service. If that's not good enough evidence for you then you will have to make a stronger case.

If prostitution is the world's oldest profession, I fail to see how it loses that title because a camera is involved.

I never said nor implied that "that statement applies to all jobs and vocations" SO DON'T TWIST MY WORDS.

Emm I did….. remember the top of the thread in which I say that a profession is a vocation that requires some type of learning and/or special training. If you don't agree with that definition could you at least tell me why? And if you agree with me what? Now you are gonna tell me that there is a school for porn actors? If porn doesn't require any special training nor job experience the only thing that matters is that you go in front of a camera and start…. (let's call it activities) doing your activities. Then if I do it only one and I get paid does that makes me a professional porn actor?

Facepalm

Considering you know I say that, you should be able to predict what I would say in regards to your OP.

But I'll bite.

Woah woah woah. Hold up. Who says you don't need to act? Where did you get that information? I can guarantee you the very best porn stars are the best because they are pretty damn good at acting. Or at the very least good at giving believable orgasms.

Not only that, a lot of porn has storylines, and some has scenarios that are obviously acted out. Casting couch for example.

So, your first assertion is demonstrably wrong.

Quote: and the only thing that matters it's that they can have sex(something anyone with working body parts can do).

Really? The only thing that matters? I guess I should think about a career in porn then if the only thing I need is the ability to have sex... oh wait. No. That's stupid. Ofcourse there's a lot more to it than that.

Quote:The only difference between amateur porn and "professional porn" is the quality of the cameras, the funding, and the number of fans.

Completely oversimplifying.

Let me put it like this. Do you hire an actual, reputable wedding photographer for your wedding? Or do you let someone who's never taken a photo in his life do it? Duh. You get the wedding photographer. Why? Because it's his job. It's his profession. He has years of experience and knows what looks good on camera. That's why he's making a living out of it and not many other people are.

The same goes with porn. Sure there's lots of amateur porn out there, and we can all take those photos at any old wedding. But the people making the money are doing so because of reasons other than the fact they have better cameras and funding.

Quote: And on the other hand modeling it's considering a profession and it share some similarities with porn actresses(and some of the actors),
both need to be attractive, both need to watch their health and figure, both involve in taking orders, both don't need to talk much or be
smart, and in both careers many of their workers are subject of plastic operations in order to stay in the business.

Really? You think models don't have to have any skill or put in any work? I'm not being funny, but you clearly haven't seen America's next top model!

I don't have the most respect for models, neither do I for porn stars. But to say their jobs require nothing more than to 'be attractive'. Wut.

Quote:But let's not forget that in the porn industry has clearly double standard depending on the gender of their actors.

The porn industry can't be compared to the regular modelling industry because the porn being created has differing audiences. A guy's looks and performance in a 'typical' straight porno aren't going to be high on the priority list are they?

And in case you hadn't noticed, women aren't generally the target audience for 99% of porn (at least not from what I've seen, and I've seen a fair bit).

Quote:So it's a profession for the actress or not the actors? Because the only porn actor that I knew achieved fame was that fat guy from surreal life.

It's a profession for both. There are people who make careers out of it. I'm not going to reel of a list of porn stars, you can look that up yourself. Your ignorance of the fact that guys and women work in this industry and have a high level of professionalism is not reason enough to doubt the validity of this being a profession in the first place.
