It’s a common misconception that porn actors are always hard and never have problems getting and keeping an erection.
The truth is that this isn’t always the case. While I’m sure there are some actors who can stay hard while performing, I’m definitely not one of them.
If your dick is already rock hard and you just want to shoot porn, check out our guide to making good homemade porn.
It’s especially difficult if you’re doing Gonzo-style porn where you’re filming everything yourself. Fidgeting with all the camera gear, composing shots and moving lights around can really kill your arousal!
Do I Have Erectile Dysfunction?
The short answer to this question is: probably not. This is a term that gets thrown around a lot and misused. Many guys think that just because they can’t get hard instantly, there must be something wrong with their dick. The truth is that, unlike in porn, it’s not common for guys to be constantly hard all the time.
How Do Porn Actors Stay Hard?
I hate to break it to you and destroy your illusion that porn performers are gods: it’s mostly achieved through skilled editing and pills like viagra.
The easiest way to maintain an erection is to use some kind of pill like viagra to increase blood flow. For me, I’ve found that Viagra basically reduces the need for stimulation in between losing my erection while I do something unsexy like change lenses on my camera or switch the lighting around. This saves a lot of time and makes things easier for the model you’re working with as they won’t have to spend time and energy to get you hard again.
If you’re shooting porn and don’t typically suffer from erectile dysfunction in your normal sex life, then you probably don’t even need to take a full viagra pill. A half pill is usually enough for me.
That being said, I’m sure Viagra isn’t for everyone and some people want to do things more naturally. All of the following supplements have been helpful for me:
I take Korean ginseng daily along with some other supplements that are good for sexual health. Ginseng has long been known to increase libido and improve sexual performance.
Some studies have shown that Ginkgo can help increase blood flow to the penis, resulting in better and stronger erections.
Horny goat weed
Horny goat weed has a long history of being used to improve sexual performance. It has a long history of being used in eastern medicine. It contains chemicals that help improve blood flow, making it easier to get and keep an erection.
Relax and Stay Hard
It helps to take deep breaths and try to relax the muscles in your body. It’s actually much easier to get hard when you’re fully relaxed than it is when you’re tense.
A good breathing exercise is to take a deep breath in through your nose, hold it for a count of 7, and then slowly exhale through your mouth. Do this 5 – 10 times and you should notice the muscles in your body beginning to relax.
Regular meditation can help you stay focused on the present moment and keep yourself calm and collected while having sex or filming porn.
Know Your Triggers
It’s also useful to know what your sexual triggers are. For me, I love having my ears licked and kissed. If I ever have trouble getting hard, I can just tell the girl to do that and I’ll be back in business very soon!
If you don’t know what your sexual trigger points are, it can be useful to pay attention to what gets you really excited next time you have sex. What do you specifically look forward to? What makes you moan louder? What makes your body shiver? Paying attention to how you react to different feelings and scenarios can give you a lot of insight into how to get and keep an erection.
