Why do girls go to Mainstream Porn from Alt Porn?

March 21, 2010 at 4:29 pm (Random Thoughts) (, , , , , )

I’m really curious to know why some girls “sellout” for lack of a better word and go from being alt porn girls to changing the way they look and dress so they can be mainstream porn workers.
I can understand if change your style because it was a phase you were going through or you just change your style.
But I’m wondering about the girls who change their look for work.Sort of the way you have people who hide their tattoos or piercings or whatnot for a professional job.
The thing that makes me curious is I just wonder if they get something out of the change from a business standpoint.
To me it would make it harder to go from a alt porn worker to a mainstream one.It’s sort of the big fish in a big sea thing.
Like if I decided I’d make mainstream dolls and have to get into competing with Barbie.Yes in theory you could stand to make more from it but the chance for it to happen is almost non existent.
Of course I’m sure it is better for some girls from a business standpoint because most alt anything or anybody is broke ass and I’m sure mainstream porn at least pays girl enough to almost pay half the rent that month.
Again I’m just curious about why some girls make the change.

    It really boils down to money Hun..in the msinstream a set can go for 2grand & that’s normally for amature..so to me that’s the only reason..

      That I totally understand then.Money wise being a alt anything sucks be it a porn actress or artist.And people wonder why people sell out and do mainstream things.People get tired of not being supported by their own subculture.

    money. Fetish pays shitty unless you are doing professional bdsm.
    Although, I noticed a lot of old porn actresses becoming Pro Dommes

      And I’m sure being a pro domme is like any business,if you get into it there are over head cost to consider and some people just don’t want to deal with that.

    I am completely guilty of doing this myself. I will stick with my BDSM and Alt ways, but I will change some for the more mainstream work. It’s not much of a change for me either. I wear the same clothing for the most part and my look hasn’t changed that much. I always thought by selling out some, I was playing them at their own game. It’s kind of like the wolf in sheep clothing. I become one to kind of bring it to a new level. Think about what Marilyn Manson did. He has always been an artist but had to sell out some to be able to speak out more.

    For me it is a bigger crowd and I can use the fame to kind of say what needs to be said. I also now have more money and with money comes power. Also, there are some connections. I am looking at the big picture and I can see it.

      Like I told another gal I can totally understand it.Because being a art artist I know how slim money can be in ALT anything.And if you aren’t totally outlandish looking I don’t consider it “selling out” much of you are versatile enough to do both.
