Should guys shave their pubic hair for porn jobs?

male porn jobs - trim pubic hair or shave it?A very common question we get is whether guys should shave their pubic hair when they apply to porn castings or any adult video jobs in general.

Before we get too far along here, it should be noted that we’re not going to be talking in this post about what to do regarding your own personal preferences. Rather, we’re specifically discussing what you should do for general porn casting opportunities.

So, should you shave your pubic hair?

The most direct answer to this question is “no”. BUT “kind of” is really more appropriate… and overall it demands some additional information. So here goes…

Natural pubic hair can get long. For many men it can get very curly and for others it’s just out-of-control frizzy.

But it’s one of those elements that makes a man… a man.

Whether we like it or not, today’s porn does show a lot of males in porn videos with completely hairless crotches. As it turns out, that’s not always what viewers want… even though guys *think* that’s what people want. Some of the performers who completely shaved everything off, were doing it because *they* thought it was the best thing to do. But many directors will tell you that they would prefer you have a little bit of hair there, so that you’re not too pre-pubescent looking!

Over the 10+ years that Adult Casting Center has been around, we’ve had this topic come up hundreds of times. From both women and men, it’s clear that there’s an overwhelming opinion that completely shaved pubic hair (no hair, fully shaved) is more feminine than *some* hair. And it’s also clear from those who have taken part in these conversations that pubic hair which is fully natural and in-the-wild is considered hyper-masculine.

It sometimes depends on whether it’s for a straight porn casting versus gay porn jobs versus a bisexual porn casting gig. But for our team at Adult Casting Center, where we cast for all of these types of jobs, we look at it the same way for all males.

Our recommendation

So where do we land on the topic ourselves? In the middle… with “lightly trimmed pubic hair” being what we prefer all of our male talent to have for the porn jobs that they are being considered for. A little bit of length. And in a natural (non-adjusted) pattern (meaning, don’t shape it!!).

The main reason? You can always quickly trim or shave BUT you cannot quickly grow it in. So, err on the side of having some hair instead of not having any!

For castings, you never know whether it will call for something in particular. And if a director wants it fully shaved, it will be simple to do it. But if you have no hair because you’ve already shaved it, and then they say it looks too feminine, then they may not cast you because it will take several days for it to grow in enough to meet their specification.

Hopefully that makes sense. We think it’s a pretty fair, level-headed approach that is very middle-of-the-road and works for almost everything.

Too much hair

Most girls and guys agree that too much hair makes it more challenging for oral sex due to hair getting in the way (and in the mouth). It also can make the penis look a bit smaller than it is. If your crotch looks like the Amazon forest, you may want to tidy that up a tad bit. Just don’t shave it all off.

No hair

So, as you can tell by now, we highly recommend against fully shaving off 100% of your pubic hair for porn jobs. For some males that shave off their pubic hair entirely, they will get stubble irritation. That leads to small red bumps which looks really bad on camera. Stubble can also lead to itchiness and other irritations that become very uncomfortable for many guys. But even if that is not an issue for you, and you are used to it, the basic fact still remains that fully shaved pubic hair for porn is irreversible on-the-spot if a scene calls for something different. Whereas *some hair* is reversible because you can shave it off on-the-spot if needed.male pubic hair for porn jobs

Everyone has their preferences

Of course we need to throw in the disclaimer that there will always be people that prefer something different than what we are recommending here. And that’s the nature of the business that we are in… there’s a body for everyone. Truly. So if you’re one of those individuals who absolutely LOVE your guy to have a natural hairy bush around his love shaft, then you’re not alone. But if you’re one of those who love a hairless smooth man, you’re also not alone. We don’t disagree with either argument, we just need to be in-between with what works best for porn industry jobs and porn castings.

Guys, if you prefer to keep yourself one way or the other personally, that’s fine – don’t let *us* tell you what you should do with your pubic hair in your personal life! But for porn castings like the ones you can apply for here at Adult Casting Center, do yourself a favor and show the porn casting team what you naturally look like… with your pubic hair.
