• 2014 is here and everyone at Start My Porn Company wants to thank the thousands of visitors this site has had during 2013 and continuing forward.

    A quick note to those that are emailing us with questions concerning adult content production . . . Please read the SMPC Porn Primer before emailing us to ask about an introduction call or more information. This is not because the Primer is for sale, it’s because we’re busy people who actually make a living producing and selling adult content and 99.89% of the questions we get asked are already answered in the Primer.

    The first question we are asked by those that haven’t read the Primer is “Is it legal to shoot porn in my state?” or the variation of “Where should I set up my business?” Well, that question is answered in the Primer in depth. And seriously peeps, please — no complaints that you have to pay for the Primer to find that out, because you can find that answer for free anywhere on the web: California and New Hampshire are the only states in the US where you can pay someone to have sex, with any intention to capture it in any form AND to distribute it (that includes uploading it to the internet) without facing minimum of Pandering charges. Yes, that includes Nevada . . . Where prostitution is only legal INSIDE a licensed brothel or other licensed adult entertainment business location. And even shooting inside a brothel, Nevada has laws against adult sex content for distribution (as Naughty America found out.

    Okay, we admit Naughty America was stupid about bringing themselves to the attention of The Law, but it still proves our case –There is NO “New Porn Valley” starting in Las Vegas, or anywhere else in Nevada. Once the state of Nevada starts to find the pornographers, they’ll just start pushing for licensing and make up a bureau to regulate and tax it as they did for gambling and brothels and they’ll tax and regulate adult producers right out of the state. LOL

    In other news . . . We are considering dropping the SMPC Newsletter and simply updating the blog more often. We’ve had problems with people signing up others without their permission for the newsletter (which is why we removed the contact form awhile back), yet we’re still having some people reporting the newsletter as SPAM or for being inappropriate content they don’t want to receive. We include a simple opt-out within the Newsletter, and we abide by all rules of ICANN SPAM regulation, but no good deed goes unpunished, it seems. ;)

    And finally, Linda Roberts and Frank Castle are getting ready to release new hardcore adult content via Internet. We’ll keep you posted as those plans are announced.

  • Hi y’all, sorry we’re running late with the SMPC newsletter, but so much has been happening on the legal and political end of the adult entertainment industry, every time I sit down to write up a newsletter the information changes before I get it sent out and I have to start over.  ~sigh~ The good news, is that much of the legal maneuvering  has been in the favor of the adult industry for a change.

    I hope to be able to sit down and do a full update on what changes have been made on condoms and age verification records within the next couple of weeks, so I can get a newsletter out in September.

    Additionally, Pay Pal has changed their security codes to some safer system of encryption. This is great news, however it’s causing some issues for existing Pay Pal buttons and systems that use them, (like s2Member, which we use for the SMPC Primer.) SO just a heads up to any of you that also sell through Pay Pal using their generated buttons: Update all of them, please! You may not even realize they aren’t working, or sometimes they will work part of the time and not the rest.

    And if you have purchased the Primer and for some reason not gotten the link to the download page directly from Pay Pal, please email me at sherry@startmyporncompany.com. I can look up your payment invoice and see that you get your download information as soon as I possibly can.

    Thanks everyone and have a safe end of summer!











  • There’s so much confusion in the mainstream media (and the adult media is not much better, yet in a different way . . . ) concerning STDs, HIV, condoms, Adult Performer Testing — and what not — The April SMPC Newsletter sorts out the myth from the reality.

    I’d like to thank DJ and Pete for the “Bravo” email I just received as well. ; ) We have quite a few adult industry insiders subscribed to our newsletter, and it’s nice when we can share information, and insight, on laws, regulations and other BS that affects all of us.

    I also need to make an announcement:

    At this time, we are closing new subscriptions to the SMPC Newsletter list. Everyone that is already on the newsletter mailing list will continue to receive our bi-monthly editions, however the contact form is being abused by those that either can’t read, or are deliberately impersonating others as some sick “revenge” game.  SMPC will not be a part of idiocy — when the games start, we don’t play!

    What I find most obnoxious about all of this, is that the SMPC Newsletter does not , and never has, contained any form of “porn”, no images, no links that don’t go to startmyporncompany.com, and no subject matter that wouldn’t be considered boring by the average reader. It’s all business information.  LOL

    We hope at some point to be able to offer the Newsletter to new subscribers again,  but until we can find a way to protect those that morons are trying to harass and embarrass  by signing up to the newsletter using their intended victim’s name, it’s best to err on the side of caution.

    All my best,


















  • Start My Porn Company is thrilled to announce another SMPC client success story .  .  .  .

    Eric successfully launched fornicatio.com a couple of weeks ago, and it is rapidly becoming a favorite destination of those who appreciate classic, and classy, adult nude photography and video.

    Fornicatio.com is filled with  3974 High Res Photos, 33 Full Length Movies, 38 + Hot Stars and the personal talent and passion of this upcoming adult photographer.  Passion is the benchmark between a ho-hum adult site purely built to make a buck and a truly extraordinary adult site. Eric has that passion and it shows!

    We are pleased and proud to have been able to help Eric achieve his dreams of owning an adult member site, and we look forward to the future as he expands his porn empire with the services provided by SMPC’s ProNet!









  • Yep, we ran a bit late on the Start My Porn Company August Newsletter . . . There’s been a lot of stuff happening in the industry and just when I’d get one written, something would come up that I thought might be a better topic for the month.

    In the end, Linda and I decided to go with the original topic, but we thought giving someone else in the industry a chance to speak would be a better idea. So much of the content in the August SMPC Newsletter is credited to Gene Ross at AdultFYI.com.

    Gene has been watching, reporting on, and working in, this industry for longer than most of the performers on any particular porn set have been alive. He knows what he’s talking about. And while I know him as a very wise man, and one that truly does love this industry, I also respect that he’s a cynic in some ways. It’s good to hear a true cynic’s point of view from time to time. It keeps you grounded.

    So buckle in, because this month’s SMPC Newsletter is a slap of reality to those that still believe porn is a 30 Billion dollar industry.

  • Start My Porn Company’s Linda Roberts interviewed with writer, Anna Dimond, for a Glamour magazine feature on “The Secret to Great Sex (in 50 Words or Less)”, and the finished story is included in the June 2012 edition of Glamour, available on news stands, and online at www.glamour.com

    Linda’s tip for connecting with your partner joins advice and suggestions from a wide variety of authors, actors, medical and sociological experts. Among the dozen or so other celebrities quoted in the article are Dr. Mehmet Oz, “Sex Made Easy” author, Debby Herbenick. Ph.D., Dr. Laura Berman, Ph.D. and Michael J. Fox.

    This Glamour article on how to keep your partner, (and yourself), interested in sex kicked off an idea for the SMPC June Newsletter: What’s a porn set really like?

    What is a porn set really like? That is the most asked question in interviews with adult industry performers and crew, and usually one of the first questions asked in the introduction calls Linda and I do for Start My Porn Company. People are usually a little disappointed when they learn the truth. LOL

    Linda’s tip to Glamour came from both her real sex life, as well as her experience with “reel sex”, as it’s done on a porn set. And as Linda said in the article, a porn set is the least sexy place to be, and the performers need to get chemistry going with each other. Between long hours and the general atmosphere on a porn set, unless performers make an effort to connect with each other, there will be no connection. Porn is a business, having sex on camera is not the same as having sex in your own home.

    Outages are planned to take no more than 10 minutes per site, however if you are trying to download the SMPC Porn Primer, or access the web pages, this may cause you problems if the site goes down while you are using it.

    Thank you for your patience during this period of server maintenance and we are very sorry if this causes you any inconvenience.

  • Linda, Chris King, Frank Castle and I have spoken with hundreds of people about starting their own porn companies since we launched Start My Porn Company. A similar thread has run through all of these conversations:

    Is there an easy way for me to learn what it takes to start my company without spending a lot of time and money, before I decide if I really want to do this?

    Before we started SMPC, members of the ProNet sat down and started outlining what all new producers need to know before they decide to start an adult production company. We use various parts of the outline we came up with for our free introduction calls, in creating our workshop presentation plans and also in the information we provide to clients that retain our consultation services.

    But there was still a need to get that information out to those that either can’t attend our workshops, or who prefer to research on their own before speaking to someone at SMPC about their plans to start a production company. Because our goal is to get the real and 100% accurate information out to as many people as possible, we came up with a plan to develop some type of product that would do that. We came up with the SMPC Porn Primer.

    The SMPC Porn Primer contains the most important information on everything from how to set up your adult production business legally, what regulations and laws you need to be aware of to stay legal and retain some personal privacy, and how what you shoot and the delivery methods you can leverage to sell it, affects the potential profits you can make in this industry. The SMPC Porn Primer also includes samples of the legal contracts and Federal regulations concerning adult production. The model release, Age Affidavit and other samples that we have included in the Primer, easily saves you over $2500.00 in legal fees, that you can use toward actually shooting content, instead of paying a lawyer to create them from scratch!

    Take a look at the SMPC Porn Primer and get started on your way to becoming the next adult producer here.

  • Start My Porn Company has been working on more ways for those that are interested in starting their own adult production companies to get the real information they need to have a shot at success in this very competitive industry.

    In a few weeks, we will be making the first of those offerings available through the Start My Porn Company website. This is something that we have been working on since 2010, and I must say that it is much more comprehensive and valuable than I dreamed it would be for new porn producers! All of the information, legal records, sample documents and everything else that new producers need is included . . . .

    I’m not ready to give away what it is just yet — but it is the ultimate resource for all those that have been seriously thinking about getting into adult as producers, and have been looking for the whole truth about this industry in an easy to access format.

    We had a great time at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, and being able to get together with our industry friends all at one time, in one place (with no deadlines looming), has opened up some other potential services and exciting offerings that will become available through SMPC during the next 16 months, and all of them are going to be of great benefit to new porn producers!

    The next edition of the Start My Porn Company Newsletter will be going out by February 10, so sign up for the newsletter now to keep from missing anything.

    Registry for Start My Porn Company’s first 2012 Weekend Production Intensive Workshop, officially closes Sunday, January 15, 2012.

    Start My Porn Company’s Production Intensive Workshops are designed to introduce those interested in starting their own adult content companies to real, hardcore adult video production. The weekend offers both interactive, classroom style workshops and allows attendees unlimited on-set access, as a full length adult video is produced by members of Start My Porn Company’s ProNet.

    ProNet Director, Frank Castle said, “When Start My Porn Company launched in 2010, what made it different from other options for learning about the industry, was real, experienced adult professionals are behind every aspect of the Start My Porn Company business service model. Anyone that is working with this company is getting accurate and honest information on everything from how to legally set up an adult production house, to how to set realistic budgets that support being able to make a profit on the content you produce. The Production Workshops take that a step further, allowing those that attend to work directly with adult production professionals in learning how to handle government regulations concerning adult production, how to run a professional adult set, and how to make money from the resulting content.”

    Benic Way, founder of the adult content sales site, Extra Lunch Money, agrees, “It is amazing just how much experience everyone involved with Start My Porn Company brings to the services they offer. I am interested in taking part in this upcoming workshop, because I want to learn about adult production on a first-hand level. I have been involved in the internet sales end of the adult industry exclusively, and I have learned from speaking with ProNet members that while there are some relevant issues for both producers and the web entrepreneur, the actual production of content is a very different game. Since Extra Lunch Money is dedicated to giving adult producers an outlet to sell specialized content, it is time for me to get on a set and learn what goes into making porn movies. It will allow me to better understand the clients that use our site to sell content, and those that order custom content from those providers.”

    The first 2012 Start My Porn Company Production Intensive Workshop is scheduled for Friday, February 24 through Sunday, February 26 in California’s San Fernando Valley. For registry information and workshop details, those wishing to attend must sign up for the Start My Porn Company Newsletter by January 15, through the link at www.startmyporncompany.com.
