What we can learn from 10,000 porn stars

nude selfy naked girl mirror self shotLike most of us, writer Jon Millward has spent the last few months thinking about porn on the internet. He’s been crunching numbers taken from 10,000 profiles of porn stars on the Internet Adult Film Database, compiling the data—heights, weights, and bra sizes; roles, movie titles, and sex acts; names, races and birthplaces—into an impressive infographic that finally answers burning questions like what is the average age of a “MILF”?and what is more popular, butts or boobs?

But it seems fair to assume that some of the more basic demographic information is right. Among the things we might learn from (the processed data of) 10,000 porn stars:

The top porn star-producing state is California, which has birthed four times as many porn stars (939) as its next-closest rival Florida (at 216). (After Florida come Texas, New York and Ohio.)
Internationally, Hungary and the Czech Republic follow the United States as the most common birth places of porn stars.
The most common role for women in porn: “teen.” Followed by: “MILF,” “wife” “cheerleader” and “nurse.”
The average age of performers playing “MILFs”: 33.

How To Take The Perfect Nude Selfie

Take care of lighting
Aside from using a phone built after, say, 2004, this is probably the most important strategy: snap your pictures where the light is good. Turn on lamps at roughly the same height as the parts you want to accentuate, and avoid stark overhead lights — no naked human has ever looked great shrouded in shadows.

Low light settings also fill your pictures with distracting (and horribly unsexy) digital noise. For bright light options, choose daylight over fluorescent light. You want your self-snap to be amateurish, but not like some security camera capture from a crime scene. Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks pulled off lighting perfectly.

Important caveat: No flashes. Ever. Ever. A camera flash will turn the most regal peepee or veevee into a blinding physiological hell demon, exploding forth from the screen. You should never look terrifying naked. A flash will clinch this.

Always use a mirror
Whether you’re shooting the whole chassis or just a piston, a reflection promises the best frame of reference for clarity and composition. Somewhere in your house, you have a mirror. And if you don’t have a mirror in your house, why did you spend money on a smartphone?
Use that mirror to set up your pose — no matter what kind of sexyface you put on, pulling off an attractively-framed portrait when you can’t see what the hell you’re doing is nigh-impossible. It made Scarlett Johansson look bad. And she’s a lot better looking than you.

Clean up your disgusting room
Ugh, come on, Heather Morris the Cheerleader from Glee: clear all that crap off of your bed. Detritus is distracting.

Probably don’t take a picture of your penis
No matter who you are, it’ll probably underwhelm. It’s not your fault. It’s not your body. Blame the technology. Save it for IRL. Why? You’re probably setting yourself up for failure. Take it from our anonymous source at Adult Friend Finder, a frequent recipient of dong shots.

“In general, it’s not always repulsive. It is, however, ALWAYS hilarious, and yes, I always show all my friends. And just for online dating dudes in general, I feel like a lot of dudes pull the dick picture trigger WAY too early. We’ve never met? I probably don’t need to see it. One date, didn’t go that well, but I’m being polite answering your texts? I don’t need to see it. And really, I’m a grown woman, if I want to see it, touch it, or be anywhere around it, you can bet your arse I’ll ask for it.”

But, if you insist, fine — here’s how. Just follow the advice of our adult friend from Adult Friend Finder: “Pics taken of your meat laid across the toilet seat are just gross. First off, we know why you’re still sitting down (ew). Second, we can usually also see the ring in your toilet AND your toenail fungus. Really… just say no.” Dear god.

Leave something to the imagination
The naked self-shot is inherently a little gross, but it’s at its crassest when you’re pouring it all out. Chandra, Lead Writer for gossip blog Celebitchy explains, “Leave some mystery… I thought Blake Lively’s “alleged” nudes were the best, just because her (alleged) body is incredible and the way the angles were chosen, there was still some mystery and that was sexy.”

Web cam sex: the experimental girl’s guide

Whether you’re camera shy or camera confident, slowly and seductively peeling your clothes back in front of a lens can feel utterly unnatural and forced. Thanks to web cams having ‘sex’ over the internet or at least partaking in some virtual bedroom fun is now the saviour for long distance relationships. “The great thing about using a web cam is that it already plays on the voyeurism of a strip show but you get to control what’s seen,” says burlesque dancer Kitten De Ville. “With a web cam you can move out of shot and just have one leg in view.” To help you star in your own Skype sex strip show Kitten and burlesque teacher, Sharon Kay, share their stripping expertise.
Prep, preen and pamper

For movement inspiration, Kitten advises against watching striptease acts on the internet: “Don’t try and recreate someone else’s moves,” she says. “Watch yourself in the mirror, play about and see where it goes, practice before you call your boyfriend and do what feels good for you. That is what being sexy is.”
When the time comes, set your scene and stage accordingly. “Be careful of your position, if you sit down make sure your posture is good,” adds Kitten. You’ll also need to be aware of lighting, you want to transform your room into something glamorous. Create mood lighting with candles and fairy lights, or use amber light bulbs which are ultra-flattering.

Before you can start you need to feel like a burlesque star and look the part too! Kitten suggests you “take time to pamper yourself and create a sexual image, with false eyelashes and red lipstick. Put on simple things like stockings, a pretty bra and knickers, anything else that can help change your attitude.” As you start transforming, Kitten promises you’ll notice and change in your sexual energy and you’ll feel more confident too.
Ready, set and strip

If you’re battling your blushes, have a glass of wine before turning the web cam on, and of course, it goes without saying you should check your man is sitting solo in front of his computer. Starting off is the hardest part, so what does Kitten suggest your first move be? “Put on some music, take off a bra strap and play with it, cross and uncross your legs to show a bit of flesh and see what your boyfriend’s reaction is. If you get stuck roll a dice and for odd numbers you take something off even numbers your man takes something off.”

Once you’re into a gorgeous groove, start using props, “Play with blankets or pillows and use them to block a view. Straddle a chair, remove your bra and let the back of the chair block your chest,” says Kitten. If your show is spontaneous and you’re wearing pyjama bottoms there’s no excuses for not being sexy. “Run your hands down your bottom, and curve your bum as you pull them down.”

Halfway through you may find you run out of ideas, have a sudden crisis of confidence or get the giggles if your man hasn’t already. Instead of trying to be more serious Sharon says do the opposite, “You need to be over the top to overcome those feelings and work twice as hard to be more flamboyant, not less.” And that sentiment should carry on throughout the entire show, “For the parts of your body you’re not as confident about, make more of them. If it’s your bum, swing your hips more to emphasise things.” With this tips you can work on any escort agency online that you want.

The best part of using a web cam is that you can turn it off when you’ve finished your strip show and keep your man guessing, or take things further. Or even seductively put your clothes back on as Kitten suggests. To make sure you perform a perfect show, Sharon says you need to respond to the reaction of your audience and make sure you act accordingly, while Kitten’s number one rule is not to take things seriously, have fun and play up to it.”
