If you feel like you're stuck in a dead-end job with a boss who can pass as The Devil's twin brother, think again. There are jobs out there that are far worse than yours.
So what is a Fluffer? [This was taken from wikipedia.]
A fluffer is a hired member of the crew of a pornographic movie whose role on the set is to sexually arouse the male participants prior to the filming of scenes that require erections.
Commonly, fluffers keep adult film stars "cleaned up" in between takes so that the actors do not have to move from their positions. These duties, which do not necessarily involve touching the actors, are considered part of the makeup department. After setting up the desired angle, the director asks the actors to hold position and calls for the fluffer to "fluff" the actors for the shot.
In other words, fluffers are part of the porn production but they aren't the porn stars. They are the ones who help the male porn stars prepare for a scene. "Dick on Demand" - yes that is the better term. Hahaha. Because seriously, a man can only have his organ up for a maximum amount of time right? What's the average for Filipinos - 30mins to an hour? (
Im totally clueless. Havent been in close proximity to those things yet, LOL!)
The job of the fluffer is to maintain the male porn star's erection. They must be "skillful" enough to get it up a couple of minutes after an intense orgasm because you dont just shoot one porn scene in a day, right? Para silang human vacuum! Hahaha. I don't likeeeeee!
So how much do fluffers make? Well, rumor has it that they get 5% of what the male porn star gets. That's ridiculously small, right?
Thoughts running through my head as I type this :
1 - Like other jobs out there, do their salaries vary depending on their competencies as a fluffer?
2 - Who determines their core competencies? Do they also have a scorecard? A weekly review? Annual performance Review?
3 - Do the best fluffers ever get promoted? What's next to being a fluffer? Is there such a thing as a Senior Fluffer?
Considering how naturally "matikas" Pinoy men are, I wonder if they still need fluffers here in the Philippines. LOL. Again, I heard this just through the grape-vine. I am innocent (
until proven guilty, hehe).
If there were no other jobs available out there, would you consider being a fluffer? =) I want to know.
