When you think of a career in the adult entertainment industry, your mind may immediately jump to posing for adult magazines, becoming a stripper, or becoming a porn star. Although these are a few of the career options out there, there are numerous other opportunities, and some of which do not even require you to leave the comfort of your own home.
While freelance writers are in demand and competition is high, writing erotica or touching on topics of a sexual nature breaks that competition down a bit. Because many writers object to writing on topics of such a “controversial” nature, they often decide against such positions in order to protect their reputation. For individuals able to write about sex in a tasteful, yet arousing manner, your reputation will protect itself. On the other hand, if you’re aspiring to become a children’s book author, you may want to rethink starting out as a sex columnist.
Freelance work in the adult entertainment business is one of the well-hidden gems of the internet. While some positions do require you to get naked in front of the camera, others only ask that you have creativity and a sexually-driven mind set--or at least the ability to pretend that you do. Whether you’re willing try anything or just get your feet wet, there is a position for you. Best of all, the business is quite lucrative, whether you’re taking your clothes off or not.
The discreetness of being a work-at-home phone sex operator is appealing in itself. You do not have to see your clients face-to-face, therefore you can work in pajamas while eating popcorn on your sofa. Your main job is to keep your callers engaged enough to stay on the line. Conversation will be sexually charged, so the longer you can keep a client holding on, the more money you’ll earn. If you wish to become a phone sex operator, you will need a sexually imaginative mind, an arousing voice, a dedicated landline phone with unlimited long distance, and a quiet place to work. Because most companies pay via direct deposit, you may also need a bank account.
As prominent as sex is in today‘s society, many still consider the topic “taboo.” As a result, sex toy manufacturers are often left in the dust when it comes to customer testimonials and reviews. While this is unfortunate for the company, it creates an opportunity for others. Reviewing adult products is a thrilling way to not only earn free samples, but also to earn some money on the side. Some companies also seek out individuals to create sexy, detailed descriptions of their products.
There are companies out there that hire men and women to sell food, beauty products, candles, and other items, but what about the companies that sell sex toys? Yes, many of these companies hire independent contractors to sell their products as well. You will typically have to order a starter pack with samples of the company’s products and a few catalogs to hand out. You will then host “parties” to spread the word about the company and it’s products. For every item that you sell, you earn commission. Some companies even offer referral programs.
Adult entertainment companies just starting out will hire individuals experienced in graphic and web design to create their websites. Because these websites are often very complex and require payment options and log-in features, the work involved is very time consuming. At the same time, however, the pay is quite lucrative.
This is one of the adult entertainment jobs that do require you to remove your clothes and perform sexual acts in front of a camera for clients to see. While many companies only seek solo models to perform acts on-camera alone, others are seeking couples. If you and your significant other are open-minded enough, you may be able to earn cash by letting others watch you do the deed online. The best part about becoming a webcam model is not only the money involved, but also the ability to choose your own hours and decide what you’re willing to do in front of clients.
