The Daily Beast’s Aurora Snow, a retired adult performer, has been covering the adult industry for years, but only last week did she broach a common yet little-discussed standard on porn sets: male performers’ regular use of erectile-dysfunction drugs.
“Most industries discourage performance-enhancing pharmaceuticals; some regulators even call it cheating. Not the adult industry. In porn it’s the norm,” wrote Snow. No matter the conditions on an adult set, she continued, male adult actors “are still expected to perform. And though these men may perform like machines, they have a secret weapon: erectile-dysfunction drugs.” They’re a mainstay on most adult sets, but their presence in the tool kit of most male talent on porn sets is rarely discussed.
