From Entrepreneur to Porn Star: The True Story of Damon Dice

Do you want to know what it’s like to be a porn star?

As viewers of porn (yes, most of us have watched porn at least once in our lives), many people don’t realize how much work actually goes into producing a porn scene.

When I used to work in the adult entertainment industry (as a scriptwriter and creative producer), I realized just how much I DIDN’T know about the industry and how many people are actually involved in ensuring a scene goes smoothly.

Like any other productions, of course, a fully produced and edited scene that’s 30 minutes long on Pornhub can actually take a whole day to shoot, between wardrobe/makeup, signing legal paperwork, taking still photographs for promotional use, prepping the scene setup itself, the performance, and then cleaning up afterwards.

Behind the camera, performers and the production team all work incredibly hard. But what happens after the scene is shot? What’s it like to be a porn star when the cameras are off?

I invited Spencer Michael Barrick, aka Damon Dice, to get personal about his experiences as a performer in the adult industry, and his journey from entrepreneur to porn star.

Listen to Lexi Sylver's erotic podcast SDC Presents Seek Discover Create

Spencer talks about how he began as an entrepreneur before breaking into the porn industry, and how his roles and experiences have evolved over time, leading to his current contract for Bellesa, the largest porn site for women.

We explore some key differences in what it’s like to watch and perform in male-centric porn vs porn made for women, some of the emerging trends in the adult industry, and some of the things we see in real-life sexual experiences that we never see in porn (like laughing, kissing, using lubricant, tripping over your pants as you try to remove them, falling off the bed, etc.).

He tells me how he manages to balance his busy life as a performer while undertaking two businesses, PS Condoms and Can Be Done CBD. Spencer also discusses how he mentally and physically prepares for porn scenes, how he manages performance anxiety.

Spencer touches on his on-set porn sex and how it compares to the real sex he enjoys in his private life.

He also offers tips on the positive influence that certain kinds of porn can have on people’s sexuality. Ethical porn has the potential of being a powerful tool to explore fantasies, desires, and truly inspire sexual experimentation, whether solo or with a partner.

Thank you for the wonderful chat, Spencer!
