Why aren't there more non white non black males in the industry?

10 posts in this topic

I recently watched a JohnOliver video on Youtube about Hollywood whitewashing. It was funny, and there was a serious point. I started to think after about porn as I watch porn often. So I wonder, Why do you believe there seems to be so much more diversity in the demographic makeup of female pornstars than male pornstars?

Just my 2 cents again, but big picture-wise, no minorities have a very deep bench when it comes to adult entertainment, male or female.  I suppose a case could be made that there's more cultural stigma attached to some ethnic groups that plays into it.

Black males arguably do. Other than that, though, it can get fairly shallow.

I swore Franklin came back when I saw the thread title.  

 

Anyway....there are likely numerous reasons.     However, I dont like getting deep into topics like these.     All I will say is Ive been pushing to see more black FEMALES in porn for years, but we are seeing less than ever.

Yeah but like given the sheer number of Indian and Chinese guys in the world, just based on stats i'm sure there are a sizable amount capable guys that want to.

 

Different cultures. You want to see Asian male performers, watch Japanese porn. They just don't make it to America (and except for Marica Hase, neither do the females) for many reasons. Now, the fun question is why we don't see more Asian-American male performers.

Aristotle, I used the terms on an geoethnic rather than national basis given that british people, australians, irish people, latino people etc seem to have no trouble shooting in the US regardless of wheter they are in fact american or not

While obviously I am referring to people who can speak english (the language of the audience) it is relevant to ask what incentives might bring more people of these other ethnicities the opportunity to shoot. Just a thought. 

Now that would be a fun Exercise in economics.

The last one was Keni Styles. I don't know what happened to him. I thought he was a pretty solid performer.

having grown up with Asian-Americans this would be a huge fuck you to their parents, and Asian-Americans aren't as rebellious as the rest of us.  When I look at all my Asian friends all I see is success.  I don't see one flunky or someone that would compromise the career they have now to make less money in porn and bring shame to their family.

 

So you are absolutely right, it is a cultural thing.  There are still cultural bedrocks that Asian people bring from their motherland and instill those values in their kids.  They don't stray far enough into "American" values or cultural blah, blah, blah.  I simply know too many Asian guys that busted their ass in school and aren't going to be "Fuck it.  I'll do porn."

 

One ass might go to the "their dick size lol" racist stuff, but that's non sense.  Even though there are differences in penis sizes between races, not every Asian fellow has a small hog, or piglett, as it were.  To echo what you said - If you want to see Asian males just watch Japanese porn.  Japan has it's own porn industry that is no joke

 

Also, it's not like porn is easy to get into for a man to begin with.  It's not enough to be an Asian guy with a big hog, but you also have to be attractive to the female pornstars.  Let's not pretend there is no racial bias there either.  We are barely getting them to do scenes with black fellows on a semi regular basis now.  And the ones that do it more often are usually women that have done almost every type of scene and need a new "gimmick".

 

I personally don't mind and would like to see more diversity.  Not just racially, but body type as well.  Sure, go ahead and pretend you don't notice the fellows.  It is what it is.  Any kind of dramatic change in porn must be lead by the women staring in the scenes.  They drive the change because they have the pussies.

As an Asian, it is not really about the equipment nowadays, but more about preferences and culture. In most studies/surveys, Asian males are one of the least "desirable" men among women. There basically isn't a demand for them, just a niche. Heck, there isn't even that much representation of them in the mainstream, where equipment really isn't an issue. That, coupled with the stigma of coming from an extremely conservative culture can explain the lack thereof. Heck, there are even certain demographics of women that have little to no representation in the industry.

 

Porn is also, for most people, a last resort. Many, not all, were out of work models/actors/etc. or some sort of desperation got them to fall into it. Like the response above, very few Asians get to that point. I would love to see some more guys who look like me. Heck I would even love to see some women from my ethnicity, but alas, it's difficult in this day and age.

 

I think there are some independent producers who make the sort of content you want.
