Le Financial Post a interrogé Nicola Lafleur de Pegas Productions à propos du monde de la porno au Québec et de l’avenir du X lié à la réalité virtuelle.
Voici un extrait :
Though pornography in Montreal may be going to the geeks, one place where there is still a market is in Quebec-made content for a local audience.
According to data compiled by PornHub on its visitors from around the world, the No. 1 search term in the province is “Quebec.”
Pegas Productions, a Quebec City-based company that boasts its niche is “francophone North American” content, says one of its most popular series features public sex at landmarks such as the Old Port of Montreal and Terrasse Dufferin by the Château Frontenac in Quebec City.
“It’s interesting for people from Quebec, but also it’s interesting internationally because there’s a little bit of an exotic side to it,” said Nicola Lafleur, a former landscaper who founded Pegas in 2006 and today has six full-time employees.
Lafleur said the company has always had an Internet focus, but the once-strong DVD and video-on-demand market has dropped off in recent years.
The paysites, meanwhile, remain profitable because they produce unique content and they has started making virtual reality that can’t be as easily pirated and given away for free.
“Virtual reality is fun because it’s an immersive experience and there really is a future in that,” Lafleur said.
Though he says it took five years of running the company to afford pay himself a salary, 10 years and more than 150 films later he says he’s going to stay in the industry even if there’s no promise he’ll get rich doing it.
“It’s a moderate growth but our philosophy is to say we are better taking one step at a time,” he said.

Le prestigieux Vice Magazine a publié une entrevue avec Nicola Lafleur, président de Pegas Productions à propos de notre cours d’acteur Porno « Pegas 101 »
En voici un extrait:
VICE: Where did you come up with the idea for Porn School?
Nichola LaFleur: We were having a lot of trouble finding good porn actors. I realized that we could teach aspiring porn stars the tricks of the trade, and in the process recruit those we thought were best for Pegas Productions.
What was the application process like?
Fifty people applied. They were required to send in a picture of themselves naked and erect. From there we sent them questionnaires and gave them information on the realities of porn. A lot of people think that they’ll make a lot of money in porn. In Quebec, that can’t be the number one motivation to get into porn. I don’t know about elsewhere, but here it won’t be full-time work, and it won’t pay $10,000 a shoot—unless you’re amazing.
We look for confidence, a good attitude, the penis (which can’t be too small, but too big can also be problematic) and looks. Looks aren’t as important, because there are all sorts of people with different preferences. So sometimes we’re looking for a young, white, skinny boy, but other times we need someone that’s the opposite of that.
The application process has changed this time around. The only way to apply is to subscribe to the course on Pegasproductions.com. If we accept you, you pay the $149 and you’re in.
Why is a really big penis a problem?
A 13-inch penis is definitely better than a three-inch penis, but a little above average is ideal. The problem with a huge penis is that it can be tough to stay hard. So let’s say we need to film for an hour, a person with a large penis can have a lot of difficulty with that.
You mentioned a looking for a “good attitude,” I always assumed the right attitude was “horny.”
It depends. For men, we’re looking for someone who gives 100 percent. Someone who wants to improve, that’s a good attitude. Someone who’s intense but can also be sensual when needed. We look for people who are creative and who participate in the process. We want people who give ideas. Sometimes we [behind the camera] lack the imagination. A porn star who gives their input can help the movie look more natural. That’s a good attitude.
