This porn star revealed how they stay hard for so long

It’s one of life’s little mysteries. How do porn stars stay hard for so long, especially when there are lots of people watching, so much expectation and well, let’s say, repeated use…

Shooting a porn takes a long time, there are loads of things to think about… angles, lighting, press shots, pack shots for the DVD (who still buys porn DVDs?). The lists go on, but the performers have to stay hard – sometimes for hours on end. So how do they do it?

Firstly there are the oral meds that performers can take. Viagra for instance.

Pornstar Michael McLachlan told us, “Yes, of course, we take pills to help us get hard and stay hard during filming. Some scenes can take 3 hours some can take 5 hours. We have to do all the still images and promotional images that day also for DVD covers etc. So yeah we need something to sustain an erection while taking photos and no sexual stimulation is happening. We aren’t magicians. Though some guys can fit a lot up their ‘sleeve'”.

Injectables

Some guys take it one step further and use injectables, directly into their penises, which can cause erections without arousal. An “anonymous” legal rep for a gay porn star told Quora users, “Liquid ED drugs are injected straight into the penis. It lasts for 6-8 hours.

Fluffers?

Remember the term “fluffers”, well apparently studios used to hire someone specifically to get the guy ready and up before the scene’s start.

Our anon legal rep continues, “… and fluffers were used to keep male actors hard. Before you ask, a fluffer is a male or female who fellates (gives oral sex) the actor’s penis just long enough to keep it aroused. In the 70s and 80s were actually hired and regularly paid to be “at the ready”

Pumps

Then there are the pumps. Pumps aren’t used that often because overusing them can actually be dangerous, and could lead to bust a blood vessel in the peen. Not nice.

Then there’s always editing. You know a scene might last more than a day. The stars may actually cum quite early on in the day and then come back to it, later on, to do different angles and positions later on in the day.

Mark Myers, a sexual health expert on Quora said, “Porn stars may last longer than the average man, but a lot of what you see in porn is not “real”.

For example, directors shoot multiple takes and lots of footage just to create one 20 minute scene.

“Still, it’s reasonable to assume that male porn stars train themselves to last longer by practising deep breathing, frequently changing positions (and sometimes exercising during sex), and of course, lots of practice.”
