Adult Film/My Online Pornstar Application - Rejected Based on Age / Location?


Question
Hello Mike,

I went to your site today to submit an online application and was rejected.  It said that I don't fall into the "criteria" that you are looking for.  I am assuming that it's because of one of two reasons.  1 - because I don't live in the LA area or 2 - because I am over 35.  I am in actuality 38 yrs old but usually pass for 25-30 at the oldest.  I am in excellent shape and work out daily.  I LOVE sex and have always wanted to do this but never had the opportunity or the guts to do it until now.  Is there any help you can give me?  I can send you pics if you would like so that you can judge for yourself whether or not I would be a good match for your company.

Thank you for your consideration,

Jenn

Answer
Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for coming to me with your question.

You are correct. Your application was rejected based on your age. We're an international Company, so it was NOT rejected based on your geographic location.

Technically & contractually, our models "hire" us... not the other way around. We are not an employer, but rather a model mgmt. Company, so we're not legally obligated to be "equal opportunity" with regards to who we offer modeling contracts to (although, of course, we don't reject applications based on [UNLIKE THE MAJORITY of LARGE PORN AGENCIES...] skin color, race, nationality, sexual orientation, religion or political beliefs/affiliations).

Most (yes... MOST) of the big porn agencies lack any substantial amount (and sometimes any at all) of women of color on their publicly-viewable online rosters. Some will practice tokenism by adding a single black model (like Misty Stone's agency, for example) to their roster, in a wretched attempt to avoid the blatant "advertisement" of their actual prejudice & outright racism.

We don't have that problem, here at http://www.crossovermodeling.com/ ,  http://www.ebonymodelworld.com/ , http://www.latinamodelworld.com/ , and http://www.asianmodelworld.com/ . Just check out a few of our models, for proof: http://www.crossovermodeling.com/Crown_Models.php

In addition to running the ONLY major crossover (porn + mainstream) talent mgmt. Company in the world, and the #1 top talent mgmt. group for new girls in the American adult film business, I'm also very proud to have one of the most (if not the most) ethnically-diverse rosters in the industry.

We work strictly on commission (we only make money when our models do), so the "criteria" you're referring to was established by our Company's management team - long ago - based not primarily on our own personal interests or sexual predilections, but rather on pure numbers... actual statistical, numerical, facts.

A 38-year-old woman is not going to be able to make nearly as much money, in the legit American adult film industry, as a woman 2 decades her junior. She might be able to make some money in our industry... yea, even more so than a woman 2 decades her senior, but we - at our privately-owned model mgmt. Company - are interested in investing our Company's resources, time & efforts only into the most profitable investments.

It's strictly business. Nothing personal.

We know literally EVERYONE in the legit U.S. porn industry, and they know us. We've been working in talent management for close 25 years, and in the porn industry for about a decade. Younger (closer to age 18) adult females will get more, higher-paying work in this industry than older women. That's a fact that we've come to learn is true, based on our experience working with the industry. We don't "make the rules", the pornography consumers, and then the production companies, do.

(This is NOT a blanket invitation for everyone who reads this answer to do so, but...) You, Jennifer C. from Kansas, USA (and ONLY Jennifer C. from Kansas, USA), are welcome to re-apply (because we appreciate your honesty & follow-up effort... frankly, it makes you sexier to us than a 25-year-old that isn't willing to make an effort to advance herself), listing your age as 35. That is our maximum age limit.

Place a note somewhere on the final section of your application, noting your real age & birth-date, along with a note mentioning that I personally gave you authorization to do so.

I can't guarantee anything, but we'll at least take a peek at you. You'll receive an honest (and straight-forward) response.

Thanks again.

Experience

Mike began his career in the entertainment industry as a talent rep for a large, well-respected talent management Company for S.A.G. actors and fashion models. The Company has been in business for for about a quarter-Century (25 years).

In 2006, since the Company was then based in the porn capital of the world (the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles), Mike suggested to the President of the Company that they open a division for adult film models. The President accepted, and Mike was put in charge of leading the new division. For the first few months, he went to work for a couple different porn producers to “learn the ropes” of the adult industry. In early 2007, the Company’s adult industry division (CrossoverModeling.com) opened its doors. Mike was named Senior Vice President.

Since that time, CrossoverModeling.com’s reputation and connections have grown immensely. CrossoverModeling.com is now considered to be the top talent management Company for new models in the North American porn industry, and the only adult talent management company capable of promoting its clients for “Crossover Modeling” (promoting its clients for mainstream acting, modeling, dance, and book authoring, in addition to promoting them for porn.)

Since 2007, Mike the Talent Manager has developed personal relationships with the presidents, casting directors, talent coordinators, production directors and “shot callers” of almost every legitimate producer of pornography in the United States. He also has relationships with talent agencies and industry-standard talent STD testing services within the adult film business. CrossoverModeling.com boasts the ability to introduce a brand-new model to the entire legitimate North American porn industry at the snap of Mike’s fingers, so to speak. Mike has also performed on camera in several porn films for various well-known production companies, and he has also begun his own production line as well.
