What Does Amateur Mean?

This term gets thrown around alot when it comes to adult entertainment and I thought it was important to talk about what an amateur is and what that means. For our company it basically means there are three of us, myself, Chilly Hicks, and my husband. We do occasionally shoot with other people but that is all they do is shoot a movie or picture sets with us. I do pretty much all the online stuff. Which means I do all the html coding I had learn this from scratch and there are a lot of things I want to do but there are just not enough hours in a day. I take care of deciding what content we will shoot (have an idea please email me). After it is shot I edit it, encode it, upload it and write a description yes that is all 500 some movies currently and all that come in the future. I write all the blogs and do all the advertising twittering etc. I literally work seven days a week from when I get up generally around 10 am to midnight. I enjoy every minute of it but it can be overwhelming at times. We have a small budget for shoots that is why we get so happy when guys send us something to do a movie in. There are no big companies paying us or taking care of us when times get a little thin. If we do not make anything then bills do not get paid. This has been one of the hardest and most challenging things I have done in my life. It has also been by far one of the most rewarding. We have overcome every obstacle that has been thrown at us and come out on the other side. I have learned so many new exciting skills and explored areas of my sexuality I would not have even touched on had it not been for my time in the adult industry. I have made new friends some from all over the world and been empowered by other women. Everything in life is what we make it yes the porn industry can be bad for women but it can also be the most liberating and freeing thing they have ever done. It really depends on what a woman is willing to put in over herself to find out which way it will go. Being an amateur for me has meant finding skills that I never knew I had, letting go of procrastination, learning to be highly organized, teaching myself new skills and letting myself just enjoy the moment.
