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.

QUEBEC CITY — A Quebec-based adult film production company that was having trouble recruiting male actors has opened an academy for budding porn stars.
Pegas Productions is offering the intensive one-day training course for $149. Nicola Lafleur, a producer at Pegas, told QMI Agency that of 50 men who applied to take the course, only nine were admitted.
« In their application they had to submit a picture of them with an erection, » she said.
The workshop starts with a morning session on the ins and outs of the business.
« Our goal, » says Lafleur, « is to give them information that will allow them to know what it’s really like to be a porn star. How much it pays, how often you work, how your health can be affected. We have to dispel all the myths. »

For the low, low price of $149 you too can learn how to be a porn star. And you might even get a job too.
Quebec porn studio Pegas Productions is offering classes for male stars, according to Le Journal de Québec.
Producer Nicola Lafleur told the newspaper that the company started the school because it has had a hard time finding good actors for its movies. The class is an opportunity for the studio to find stars who can endure the rigours of performing for the cameras.But if you’re thinking of signing up in hopes of getting some action, stop right there. The class consists of both a theoretical and practical section, but the latter is performed with underwear on. Basically, the students simulate challenging positions.
Lafleur told VICE the company received 50 applications for its first class and accepted 10. Four of the students were taken on to shoot actual porn.
What do you need to get into the class? Send an application to the company (NSFW link) and include a nude photo.
Lafleur told VICE they’re looking for larger than average penises (SHOCKER), but nothing too big.
« 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, » he said.
