When you run a porn site, you get an enthusiastic response from the male community. Based on the number of inquiries I receive, having sex with pretty girls is apparently the dream job of many men. I can certainly relate to that!
So am I seeking male talent?
No, not at this time. But please read on...
It's not hard to figure out that this site is essentially a one-man show. It started as a hobby project, and while it has grown over the years, it's not exactly a profitable business. I fund all the shoots with my own money, and that's fine with me because I get to enjoy the perks of the "creative process." Any and all successes and failures are mine and mine alone, and I like it that way. Yes, I realize that this mindset likely prevents Covert Japan from entering the pro porn world and blossoming into a full-blown business. If I held more of a business-building mindset, I would hire pro actors, camera operators, and editors. It takes money to make money to succeed in business.
But I don't really care much about Covert Japan's amateur status because I have complete and total creative control. I like being the "lone wolf" of sorts.
I didn't start Covert Japan with the idea of making loads of money. I started it to "document and enjoy the otherworldly beauty of Japanese women and culture." That's a very classy way of saying that I started Covert Japan to have sex with as many pretty girls as possible before I die or my veiny old d*ck falls off.
So in other words, Covert Japan is currently one guy in the midst of a mid-life crisis hoping to entertain others in the process, and not a profit-minded production company.
Will I ever seek male talent?
Maybe some day, but it's a bit of a chicken and egg question. It's proven quite challenging convincing people to pay for porn when there's so much "free" pirated porn to compete with. And it's tremendously heart-breaking when I find my own videos pirated. These kinds of things hold me back from pouring more money and resources into the project.
If I ever figure out a solution to this conundrum and the revenue situation improves, then I may indeed seek male talent. If I had more monetary space to work with, then yes, I would produce higher-budget videos.
But until then, please enjoy my mid-life crisis. :-)
