Whether you're looking to spice things up in the bedroom or searching for a new look, there's a lot you can learn from pornstar fashion. Pornstars are fit, confident, and sexy, but anyone can pull-off the pornstar look with a little hard work and effort.

Method 1
Getting A Pornstar Body

    Trim body fat with cardio workouts 3-4 hours each week. "Cardio" is exercise where you raise your heart-rate during a consistent activity like running, biking, or swimming. While pornstars come in a variety of shapes, colors, and looks, they are usually trim, fit, and in shape. In order to burn away unwanted fat and highlight a healthy figure, you should do a cardio workout at least 3-5 times a week.
    • Dancing, spinning, and rowing all count as cardio -- anything that raises your heat-rate for at least 20 minutes at a time is a good start.
    • Studies suggest that interval training will help you increase conditioning and burn calories faster. Interval training combines short bursts of energy with longer periods of lower exertion. For example, you might jog three laps of a track but sprint the 4th.[1]

    Build muscle tone with weight training and body exercises. Most pornstars have bodies that would make an action star blush, but they didn't come naturally. Lean, sexy muscles only come from hard work. While you should focus on toning your entire body, there are a few muscles that are essential for the pornstar look. For each exercise, start with 3-4 sets of 10-15 repetitions (ie. do 10 sit-ups, three times a day), and try to work out each muscle at least 3 times a week.
    • Abs: Do sit-ups, crunches, and planks to develop a killer six pack and a flat stomach.
    • Pectorals: Push-ups, bench press, and flyes (curling weights horizontally towards your chest) will all help you develop a rock-hard chest. Women looking for a large bust should focus less on pecs.
    • Arms: Push-ups, bicep curls, shoulder shrugs and shoulder flyes will tone and tighten your arms.
    • Thighs: Squats, box jumps, wall sits and leg presses will all develop solid, sexy quadriceps and butt muscles.

    Tan your skin. A tan makes you seem outdoorsy and active and masks fat and imperfections. Tanner people have even proven to be more attractive on average.[2]That said, spending too much time in the sun can lead to skin cancer and skin damage, so bronzing creams are often the best way to get a safe, even tan.
    • If you choose to tan, wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and never use tanning salons. When outside, reapply sunscreen ever 30 minutes, and limit sun exposure to an hour or less.[3]
    • Not everyone needs to be tan to be attractive -- naturally fair skin is beautiful whether you want to look like a pornstar or not.

    Eat a healthy diet. In order to get a pornstar body, and keep it, you have to eat a balanced diet that limits fats and processed sugars. Limit your calorie consumption by eating slowly, stopping when you are full, and drinking 6-7 glasses of water a day.[4]
    • Complex carbohydrates, like whole wheat, oatmeal, and brown rice are far healthier than simple carbs like white bread and sugar.
    • Substitute sugary snacks and junk food with vegetables and hummus, yogurt, or fruit.
    • Cut soda, candy, and fried foods completely from your diet for the best results.

Method 2
Crafting a Pornstar Style (Female)

  1. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 5
    Show off your assets. Pornstars are not shy about flaunting their breasts and butt, and they make up a big part of your total "porn look." The best way to do this, naturally, is posture. Pose like a pornstar by throwing back your shoulders and arching your lower back forward to show off the areas that slay the guys and gals.
    • This posture is for posing -- a more natural posture will keep your back straight, forming a straight line from your shoulders down to your ankles.
    • Make your breasts appear bigger by wearing the right size, breast-enhancing bra and wearing form-fitting tops.
    • Don't feel like you need augmentations to be able to pull off the look. Many pornstars today are celebrated for their petite figures or large curves. Show off what you've got.

    Style your hair. Pornstars tend to have long hair, but any color or length can work if you take the time to take care of it. Shampoo frequently and apply conditioner every day for healthy, sexy hair.
    • Add volume to your hair by teasing it or adding volumizer
    • Use curlers to get big, bouncy curls for a more "done-up" look.
  3. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 7
    Apply simple but glamorous make-up. Bright lipsticks, dramatic eye shadows, and flashy nails will give you the sultry look you are hoping for. Aim for a look that is just a notch overboard — inappropriate for work, but barely.
    • Bright red lipstick is the classic color for starlets.
    • Try the "smoky eye" look Start with foundation then delineate the upper and lower lash lines and fill the lower half with contouring shadow. Rub a softer color of eyeshadow over the upper lash line and a pearly shadow across the edges to make the your eyes appear bigger.[5]
    • Consider fake eyelashes, or add volume and shine to your lashes with a bit of deep, dark mascara.
  4. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 8
    Trim your body hair. Most pornstars have their pubic hair trimmed or even completely waxed. All of them shave their underarms and legs regularly, as well as bleach any facial hair.
    • This is also a matter of taste, as "old-school" pornstars were less concerned with pubic hair then women today.
  5. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 9
    Wear sexy clothes or costumes. Your ability to look like a pornstar largely depends on your makeup and clothing. Be suggestive and a bit revealing -- think of short shorts, tight shirts with deep necklines, and bikinis. Some "classic" pornstar outfits include:
    • A black corset, stockings with garters, and long lace or leather gloves. Complete the look with high heels.
    • A leather bra with slashed cups, and some waxed skinny jeans for bondage play.
    • Try something more "themed," like a sexy librarian outfit (plaid pleated skirt and button down with glasses) or a nurse outfit (tight-fitting white smock with white overcoat).

    Be flirtatious. You want to make your charms as genuine as possible. Flirting is about communicating with your body language, tone, and questions to hint attraction. Be chatty, smile often, and don't be afraid to show someone you are interested in them. Playing "hard to get" by being coy and elusive will give you an potentially irresistible aura of mystique.[6]
    • Smiling and making eye contact are the two best and easiest ways to flirt.
    • Touching the shoulders, hips, or face are all overt signals of flirtation.
    • Paying a compliment, when genuine, is a great way to flirt.[7]
  7. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 11
    Play the part. Porn tends to emphasize traditional gender roles, so women might want to try to do something sexy like lap dancing or pole dancing, although it's not strictly necessary. Exaggerate your femininity not to the point of caricature but stopping right before. That said, don't be afraid of your own empowerment -- if you want the pornstar look, you've got to remember that you are a star!
    • Use suggestive language and double-entendres when talking about pizza or plumbing. Anything that can be jokingly sexualized will do.

Method 3
Crafting a Pornstar Style (Male)

  1. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 12
    Wear short, tight-fitting clothing. Skimpy is the name of the game for male pornstars, and when in doubt you should always show more skin. Revealing or see-through clothing, like mesh, is also popular if you're confident enough to rock it. Your clothes should show off your muscles and lines, but remember the number one rule of pornstar fashion -- it has to come off easily.
    • Tops: Try deep, deep v-necks and cut-off t-shirts. Open vests revealing bare chests, leather, and shirts that end before the bellybutton are all easy options.
    • Pants/Shorts: Depending on your style you should either opt for short shorts or tight, slimming pants, like skinny-cut jeans. No matter what your choice, wear them low on your hips to reveal the "v" leading from your stomach down.
    • Accessories: Tattoos, piercings, and hair gel are generally the only accessories male pornstars have available to wear.
  2. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 13
    Learn to "manscape." Manscaping is the art of grooming your body hair in an appealing way. Keep your neck hair close cropped and trim beards regularly to remove stray hairs. Pubic hair is generally shaved away completely, and some male pornstars opt to remove all of their chest hair as well.
    • Regular haircuts will keep your face clean and attractive.
    • Those going for an "old-school" look should cultivate the biggest, bushiest mustache they can muster.
    • Style you hair with gel and products. You want to clean your hair with shampoo regularly and apply conditioner daily. Take the time in the morning to put gel or mouse in your hair and tousle it gently for a clean, "just-got-out-of-bed" look.
    • There is not "right" hairstyle, but generally guys have shorter, close cropped hair with a little gel holding it up around the forehead.
  3. Image titled Look Like a Pornstar Step 14
    Develop strong confident body language and posture. Even the best body and clothing will look unappealing if you slouch your shoulders and hide your assets. Standing tall and making eye contact is important to truly look like you could be in porn.
    • Stand with your back straight and your shoulders back, opening up your pecs.
    • Look people directly in the eye when talking to them or listening.
    • Keep your chin level with the floor and your head up.
    • Sit comfortably, but keep your spine in a straight line.[8]

    Flirt often. Pornstars exude sexual energy, so you need act sexy to pull off the pornstar look. Flirting is about having confidence with women and other men -- talking to them, making subtle advances (lightly touching a shoulder, winking, etc.), and putting them at ease. The number one hint for successful flirting is acting like it takes no effort at all.
    • Smiling and making eye contact are the two best, easiest ways to flirt.
    • Touching the shoulders, hips, or face all make overt signals of flirtation.
    • Paying a compliment, when genuine, is a great way to flirt.[9]

    Play the part. Male pornstars tend to be gruff, quiet types that stick to traditional gender norms of masculinity like strength and composure. Be quiet, show off your muscles whenever possible, and have personal confidence. You look fantastic, so act like you know it!


  • You don't have to be in porn to rock the pornstar look, either for a party or for going out.
  • This look should be used with the understanding that it may draw unwanted attention.
  • If you're not in your own bedroom or a Halloween party, then try the undercover porn star look. Try wearing a push-up bra, lacy panties, and some high thigh stockings under your jeans. Try a sexy corset under your t-shirt. No one will know what you have on.
  • Looking up pornstars online is often the best way to figure out your look.


  • Real tans can hurt you and, in extreme cases, cause skin cancer. Unless you have tanned before and know what you're doing, stick with the spray-on tan.
