    The most common way would have been to sell yourself and have the photos taken by the company that is hiring you. Then they go and sell the photos or print them.

    Your job is pretty hard if you don't have the connections already.

    Try looking up an Adult Web Masters forum and test the waters for a demand to your sort of pics.

    You could also develop your own site. I guess it depends how far you are willing to go to make money of these pictures.

    Maybe a better suggestion could come after you describe the type/style of the photos.

    ie. Solo, Bi, Straight 1 on 1, Homosexual, Fetish etc

    Have you tried selling them already? And, what sort of quality/format/size are they?

    My reply is based on the following assumptions: that everyone shown in your sex pictures, may it be just yourself or you with others, are over the age of 18 and that the pictures show acts that are not considered obscene, illegal.

    My suggestion would be setting up a site to sell your pictures. You could offer them as a download or make copies to sell. Since I do not know how many pictures you have it is difficult to give you an estimate and so I have done a generic estimate below. The key to remember is this pictures and videos do require a lot of disk memory and bandwith so the more you have the more you will need. If you are going to offer them as a download you will need a web hosting provider that offers

    1) a large amount of bandwith >= 6 GB

    2) a large amount of disk memory >= 500mb preferrably > 1GB

    3) web hosting provider that will accept adult hosting or at least in their Terms and Conditions does not expressly state adult orientated sites are not allowed. (It is best to ask)

    4) offers software as a part of your plan that will help you with your goals (e.g. e-shopping cart)

    5) offers free templates or web building kit as a part of your package. This is not needed if you are comfortable with HTML or PHP.

    In my opinion, you will have to make sure that regardless if you sell them to a company or offer them as downloads that you are able provide 18 USC 2257 documentation along with providing model consent forms for each person in your pictures. Otherwise, in my opinion, in the case of selling them no legitmate seller will touch the pictures due to the legal consequences for them and if you are offering them as a download you will be creating a lot more headaches than necessary. If you are going to offer them on your site then the documentation could be included as a part of the sale.

    Finally I am not sure what your objective is for selling X-rated pictures of yourself. If it is to make some money I have addressed it. However if you are looking to promote yourself for some type of adult film or adult modeling then having a website might be the way to go for you as it could be your calling card to help you get noticed.

    As Yorkiesmurf noted, you'll need a standard model release signed by anyone identifiable. You'll also need the copyrights to any photos used, or a release from the copyright holder (usually the photographer).

    Having these two items is a MUST for any commercial use of photographs, porn or not. Failure to have either one could cost you major bucks -- everything you have plus future earnings.
