QUEBEC CITY, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- Want to be a porn star? There's a class for that.

A Canadian adult film company has started offering a one-day training course about the porn business to prospective male actors for $149.

Pegas Productions got the idea for the class after a new actor got "gun shy" on set. "He was nervous, and under a lot of pressure," Pegas producer Nicola Lafleur told QMI. "Perhaps if our course had been around he would have felt more comfortable."

Course attendees get to learn about the business, talk to current actors and actresses, and see different sexual positions first-hand. "Students are allowed to try different sexual positions as well," Lafleur said, "but only simulations. We make them wear their underwear."

In addition to checking out the equipment on the set, students also get to familiarize themselves with things like cameras and production lights.

Fifty men applied to be in the academy's inaugural class, but only nine made the cut.

"In their application they had to submit a picture of them with an erection," Lafleur said.
