Performing FAQ

Return to Performer Form

Q: Is the sex scripted?
A: The sex is not scripted; what you decide to to is up to you and your co-star. If you have plot ideas, let us know before your scene. Dialog is created the day of the shoot and/or improvised. We encourage co-stars to discuss safer sex, boundaries, and desires prior to arriving on set. Once on set, Shine talks with cast and crew prior to shooting, and to make sure everyone involved consents to the ideas and actions that may unfold on camera.

Q: Can I “party” on set?
A: No. This is a sober work space; absolutely no recreational drugs are allowed. If you show up intoxicated, you will be asked to leave without compensation and will not be invited back. We take this seriously because if a person’s judgment is impaired by alcohol or drugs, they are unable to give consent.

Q: Can I submit my own content for CrashPadSeries.com?
A: We shoot exclusive content. If you are a filmmaker interested in sharing your work with us, please see PinkLabel.TV.

Q: Will I do my own hair/makeup for the shoot?
A: There is no hair or makeup artist on set because we prefer each model’s individual style and not all models want hair/makeup. (We do hire make-up artists for talent performing as characters in Pink & White’s feature shoots.)

Q: What should I wear?
A: Wear what you feel sexy in! Don’t feel pressured to be anything you’re not — whether it’s pressure to be more feminine or masculine, shaved or hairy, etc… we hope that you’ll come to the set looking like your best, confident, sexy, self. Some people think about their clothing as what they’d wear to a club if they wanted to look really hot. Others play a character they have in mind, like a queer college kid, or a hot mechanic. Whether you’re wearing something that makes you (or your co-star) feel on fire, or, like you’ve just slipped into something more comfortable, what you choose to wear is entirely up to you. Though it’s best practice not to wear obvious big brand names for trademark reasons or to wear all black or all white clothing for lighting reasons.

Q: How long does a shoot normally take, and how much of that is usable content?
A: CrashPad shoots are 2 hours total. (11am-1pm or 2pm-4pm). Performers arrive on location camera ready, with paperwork completed prior to the shoot date. Profile shots are done first, which take about 10 minutes and can be clothed or nude. After checking in with Shine and the crew about what you want to do on camera (aka “the fun stuff”), there’s a short break and then approximately 30-45 minutes of sex is filmed, depending on how the performers want to go at it! Then, an informal 10-15 minute Behind-the-Scenes interview is recorded. (“How did it go for you?” “What was your favorite part?” “Was it what you expected?” etc). The video episode itself is typically edited to be 20-30 minutes long. Behind the scenes video length varies in terms of interview dialogue and excerpts from the scene, and usually run 10-15 minutes in length.

Q: How many people are normally on set?
A: On a typical shoot, there are 4 queers/women on set; director, co-director, photographer and production assistant. The environment is relaxed and professional, and often very fun. *Due to COVID Guidelines, there are now only 2 camera people on set, Shine and her videographer. The 2 other crew members will be backstage in another room controlling remote cameras.

Q: Is STI testing required?
A: Any sexual activity can put a performer at risk for Sexually Transmitted Illnesses (STI) so we strongly encourage participants to have a clear industry standard STI test within 14 days of the shoot date. Additionally, we recommend the use of safer sex barriers such as condoms, dental dams, and gloves, which we provide. Because many performers work for us with fluid-bonded partners, and because we value performer’s sexual autonomy and respect their choices, we recognize that performers have the right to waive tests and/or barrier use at their own risk. As a company policy, performers are responsible for their own sexual health. For STI information see our Queer Sexual Health Resources page.

Q: Do I need a COVID vaccine?
A: At this time we are only booking talent who agree to provide proof of a completed vaccination.

Q: Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the shoot?
A: Staying healthy is a plus! Keep hydrated (drink plenty of water each day), eat well and maintain your regular exercise routine. (We are very body positive and want you just the way you are)! It should go without saying, but please don’t come to the set intoxicated OR hung-over from partying the night before. Get plenty of sleep days before your shoot and avoid sunburns or new tattoos. Other than health, you can count the days by deciding on a stage name if you don’t have one already, and fantasizing about what you’ll do on set for the shoot.

Q: Will I get free access to the site?
A: Yes, every model on CrashPadSeries.com receives a life-time membership to the website. You will also be given the option to receive a special 40% affiliate rate. See our Affiliates Page for more info about this commissions-based program.

Q: How long does it take for the shoot to go live?
A: Your CrashPad episode will go live anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months after the shoot date. When it goes live, you’ll be notified via email.

Q: Can I request a scene be removed after it is posted?
A: We work with professional and amateur performers who understand the stigma and consequences of being out as queer, as trans, as kinky, and as a porn performer. As the saying goes, “the internet is forever” — removing content is never an assurance that there will not be downloads or saved images remaining. The adult industry honors the producers’ legal ownership of the content through signed release forms. Some producers require performers who request removals to pay 1-3 times the amount they were originally paid for the shoot to recoup the producer’s lost expenses. Remember that it is not just one performer who worked that day, but also the director, camera crew, photographer, production assistant, editor, web manager… and all that cost and overhead adds up. Therefore, while we might accept removal requests by performers on a case-by-case basis, we stress that it must be seriously considered and it is never 100% possible to erase digital content from the internet.
