Which porn stars have made their auditions public?
The BBC has been asked to investigate how some of Britain’s biggest porn stars are being paid to audition for film jobs.
BBC Panorama asked a number of porn performers for their audition details and found some were paid up to £1,000 for a few minutes of their time.
The actors were told they were being asked to perform at a company’s event in exchange for the right to work for the company.
The porn industry has been criticised for a lack of transparency about the industry’s pay structure and for not using the word “audition”.
But one of the performers told Panorama: “It’s all very professional, you don’t even know that it’s actually happening until it’s over with.”
I can’t imagine what it’s like for a guy who’s just about to get a job.
“A spokeswoman for the Association of British Producers said: “As part of our annual recruitment drive, we are asking the public to provide us with feedback on their views on the industry and how it operates.
“The spokesman added: “We recognise the work that many porn stars do is often very demanding and takes a long time, but the industry as a whole has improved greatly over the past 10 years.
“We are continuing to listen to our members and offer them the best deal we can.”
He added: ‘Porn is for everyone’ It comes after a number porn stars were approached by a prospective employer and offered to audition in exchange of a job.
“And I said, ‘I’m here to audition.’ “
“And they were very supportive and said, [to the producer]: ‘Oh, you want to do it for £200 a night? “
We’ll pay you that.’ “

And I was like, yeah, thanks.”
The actor also said he had been offered a role on the porn channel The Voice.
“I don’t know if I’m the only one,” he said.
“It seems like a lot, but I’m not really sure what the fuss is about.”
The spokesperson for the National Union of Producers (NUP) said: ‘This is a major issue and we need to find out how it’s happening.’
She said the industry needed to change its approach. “
They can’t do that to you, they can’t take away your job.”
She said the industry needed to change its approach.
‘A bit of an anomaly’ A spokeswoman from the National Association of Prods said: [The industry] has made a huge investment in the past decade and is one of only a handful of industries to still have a business plan and the industry is not going to be the same again. “
But there’s also a need for the industry to be more open, not only about its pay, but about how it has been able to maintain a business model.”

“There is an element of this anomaly that we’re just not going back to the way things were,” she said.
The spokesperson said the NUP had previously called on the government to change the law to make it illegal for companies to use a public image as a recruitment tool.
“The industry’s position is that people need to be able to see who they are in real life,” she added.
“What we want to see is a change in the law so that companies can’t use public image in recruitment and are only allowed to use it as a means of recruiting.”
Porn actor Laura St John said: The industry has taken a lot of risk in the last decade, but it’s very rewarding and very rewarding in terms of the money that people have been getting.
“In terms of this industry, you’re getting paid to do what you love.
It’s all about making money.”
