A former footballer who now works in the porn industry has opened up about his first shoot and admits the job isn’t as fun as people think.

Former Crystal Palace academy player Damian Oliver, who spent time in prison before moving into a career in porn, has spoken about his six-hour-long, sweat-soaked first shoot that only netted him £150.

He said: “That was terrifying, being on my first set, the camera guy there was a big bald Irishman, he was quite scary – I’ve got to get my d**k out in front of him and start f***ing.”

The pressure of the situation caused Oliver to… erm… “shrivel up” but said his co-star was “nice” and things soon sorted themselves out.

He went on: “It was like laminate flooring, and I was butt-naked and sweating, and I was slipping in my own sweat.

“We had to keep cutting, I had her bent over the sofa but I kept slipping all across the floor, they had to keep wiping the floor down, I was just a dripping mess.”



At the time, Oliver – who dates fellow porn star Sophie Anderson – saw porn as a way to earn a bit of cash on the side while he worked as a painter and decorator but after meeting his partner decided to give it a good full time.

Talking about how the reality wasn’t quite the same as what he imagined, he explained: “People used to say to me, ‘you’re doing it all anyway’, because they knew I used to sleep with girls, I was a player, and they said, ‘you might as well get paid for it’,” he recalled.

“But it wasn’t until I had the confidence to actually do it, [that I realised] it was a whole different ball game.”

I used to fight as well, maybe that could have gone somewhere.

“I was good at both of those things, but being a porn star, I thought that would be just as good.

“But it’s not as good as people think.”
