At some point in every guy’s life, he has thought about what the life of a famous pornstar might be like. You know, sex with beautiful women every single day, while getting paid for that kind of “work,” and becoming famous for your bedroom skills.

Problem is, it’s not easy to get into, nor as glamorous as many of us probably think it is. If it were simple, there’s a good chance more of us would go down that career path, avoiding the stress of a 9-t0-6 and dealing with a boss that hassles us about the most ridiculous things. Yeah, the pornstar lifestyle seems to be better.

But, is it really that great? AskMen caught up with a popular male adult star, Ryan Driller, who described his journey into the industry, how he came up with his name and, of course, how a normal guy like you or I can, just maybe, be lucky enough to become a famous pornstar himself. Talk about the ultimate dream job, huh?

How did Ryan Driller get into the adult industry and, ultimately, become an pornstar?

As you could imagine, anyone who has risen to fame didn’t get there by sitting around and avoiding the work. Whether it’s becoming an adult star or a famous musician, it takes talent and a certain work ethic to make it. For Driller, it came down to simply doing what he enjoyed the most, as he quite a 40-hour work week to start his journey.

“I had learned that doing what makes me happy will leave me much happier and successful. So, since I’d always thought about getting into porn, and had the time and means to do so, I started looking into getting into the industry,” he said.

“From there, the producers and others on set, would share my information with other productions they were on, and I kept getting booked more and more,” he explained.

The path isn’t recommended for everyone, but it’s one that worked out well for Driller.

What should guys consider before trying to become a famous pornstar?

Naturally, one of the first things that probably comes to mind before making the leap into a career in porn, is how to tell family and friends about your new career path. According to Ryan Driller, it’s all about being committed, understanding that once you cross the bridge of going naked on camera, there’s no turning back.

“Think about what all you want to do and be doing in five years. Are you OK with probably never getting to do that? If you fail at porn, you won’t be [directing porn] in five years. If you want to be a teacher, you won’t be doing that in ten years,” Driller says. “Times are changing and porn is less taboo; but porn will close just about any door where you have to work for someone else.”

As for telling people about your hopeful profession as an adult star, Driller says there’s a strategy that should be followed, but that you should expect push back from people, with some even putting you down, disagreeing with your decision or blatantly cutting you out of your life. Still, this is how he suggests breaking the news to people.

“First, tell your girlfriend, your mom, her mom, and your sister that you’re doing porn. They’re going to find out the day your first scene is released, anyway. Do you want it to come from your ex, her boyfriend, your neighbor, her boss? So, think about that conversation.”

Solid advice, as someone, somewhere will probably come across your work once you film that first sex scene.

As an adult star, would Ryan Driller suggest a guy try to become one?

As mentioned above, telling people you’re an adult star isn’t easy. In fact, it might be something people hide at first, until they absolutely need to break the news to those close to them. However, Ryan Driller seems to have no regrets for choosing the career, and says he loves what he does.

“I love my job. I’m here because I want to be here. I don’t need to be here. I’ve worked in ‘the real world’ and I’ve followed my own path, everywhere. I thought about all the ramifications and possibilities that could happen in pursuing porn. I’ve had the conversations with my family and friends. I know what I got myself into and what I’m doing.”

“But the moment that you’re labeled a porn star, your credibility is gone, your morality is seen as faulty and compromised, your intelligence is questioned, and your wellbeing is doubted. I do not recommend it for anyone, unless they absolutely know and want to be here. If you’re just considering it, you don’t belong. I you think you’d be OK, you don’t belong. If you’ve really wanted to be in porn, but just aren’t sure, then you don’t belong. If you don’t have a backup plan, you don’t belong. You have to be ready and willing to do anything, and to run when you need to, too.”
