porn star salaries

34 posts in this topic

hello and good day.

 

i started thinking today about porn stars and there salaries. we all assume that these young ladies are in the business for the cash and they are getting rich. well for the most part from what i have read is that most of the young starlets are in it for the money. to my surprise though they are not getting rich.:mellow:

 

from what i have read im really surprised these girls do what they do for such little wages. here is a pay scale that i found online that seems to be pretty close to what these starlets earn.

 

Blowjobs: $200-$400

Straight sex: $400-$1200

Anal sex: $900-$1500

Double Penetration: $1200-$1600

Double anal: $2000

 

this all depends on the girls. "Girls like Hillary Scott who’ve been in the business a while make about the same, but more toward the higher end of the scale. But according to Frank, Hillary in particular liked to work, so her rates probably went down. A bigger star like Amy Ried or Eva Angelina makes “way too much”. Frank said that “girls like that have inflated rates because they don’t like to work as much as, say, a Hillary who loved to get nasty 24-7″. I take that to mean that they make the high end or just above the high end of the scale laid out above." thisquote was taken from videobx.

 

back to my point here. for the most part these girls are really not making that much money. i read awhile back in cxxx blog that phoenix marie has done around 40-50 scenes. i would imagine that she is getting paid the upper end of the scale around 1000 bucks for the straight-sex scenes that she does. i think she has been around for at least 6-9months. so lets say she will make around 50-60 thousand dollars. that’s not really that much money. its not bad money but living in cali im sure you could really burn through it. plus she has to pay for her own health insurance and maybe has some type of retirement fund.

 

i would really like to know what the top non contract stars make. for example amy reid or eva angeline. hillary scott signed with sex-z for a cool million bucks. these other girls that stay in the business i guess dance and escort on the side to justify the low wage that porn pays them.

 

from what i can tell there is so many new young starlets that it might be tough to get work after you have been around for 3-6 months. for example, look at holly west. everyone on this site loves her and would love to see her more often. but in all reality na will only use these starlets a few times. they do not want to keep posting updates with the same young starlet. with so many young eager girls entering the business everyday there is not point in booking the same girl over and over. it seems though that na and other sites uses the same milfs over and over. that would make since cause i would imagine that they are not as plentiful as the young coke head starlet.:blink:

 

after reading cxxx blog he said that he usually will do 20 scenes on average per month. this is not including jack-off scenes and blowjob scenes. he said that he earns 400 dollars per sex scene. that is 8 thousand per month, 96 thousand per year, plus i would tack on another 10 grand for other types of scenes blow job and jerk off or what ever. so that means thathe will gross about 100 thousand per year.

 

that being said, 100 grand is a lot of money. but he has to pay for his own health plan or retirment plan. plus la is really pricey i would imagine.

 

my point is porn is a 10 billion dollar business a year. someone is getting really rich and it is definitly not the male of female talent.

 

i think they should try to organize some type of union?:blink:

 

anyways just curious to what you all think.:cool:

 

good day,

well i like what you have put together and it is the same if not worse in the entire entertainment buisness which is what they are SOMEwhat a part of so you would imagine that the ones who take this a buisness would do well and the ones who don't well we all know what happens to them. so it like anything else you only make and take away what you put in

The only person to hurt would be the consumer b/c they'll pass the cost of salary raises to us....b/c the companies arent going to take a profit hit to pay the actress more cash......you wanna talk about a business that makes mega cash and they dont pay the talent....talk about wrestling.

I forget who it was, but I remember watching Dateline a few years ago and some pornstar was saying in her first year, she made roughly $250K. $250 for having sex. Not to mention if they are escorting on the side, which probably rakes in another $100 K if they are doing in regurly. These pornstar escorts charge between $1500-2500 PER FUCKING HOUR!

 

Oh yes, I pity their poor souls.

A person who is self-employed in the adult entertainment industry is no different than any self-employed person. There will be people that will really hustle and make tons of money, while others are much more laid back about it, so their incomes are not as high.

 

I think women in the industry have potentially more opportunities to make money than the men. When they are not doing scenes, they can do photoshoots, feature dance and be the eye candy at conventions and car shows.

 

So, I don't think the amount of money per scene really has anything to do with their total income take. Go-getters will naturally make more than those that aren't as serious about it. Sure, it's the adult entertainment industry, but it is still a business.

As an example, according to Roxy Devilles MySpace she earns between 150K and 250K a year.

 

I would imagine someone like NA would just offer x amount for a standard scene and just that a higher profile star would earn more than a newcomer. I am just guessing of course!

 

Would be interesting to know what kind of money the girls and guys earn for scenes.

Different girls want different things from the porn industry. A smart girl can secure her financial future that she would other wise not be able too with a regular job.

 

A lot of girls don't live in LA they just fly in work of 2 or 3 weeks and go back home.

 

She can book 3 scene with NA in one day for $1000.00 thats $3000.00. Not bad for a few hours work.

 

She can go to other companies and do the same thing.

 

A girl can come to LA fuck for 2 or 3 weeks and leave with money for a year of college, or a down payment on a house or a nice savings account.

 

And a smart beautiful girl that takes care of herself can keep coming back for years.

 

As an example, according to Roxy Devilles MySpace she earns between 150K and 250K a year.

 

I would think Roxy gets at least $1000.00 for a scene. So she fucks 15 to 25 guys a year at maybe 3 hours per scene. She works 45 to 75 hours a year.

 

Thats not bad money.

and then according to Veronique's blog, she is well off and fucks on screen for fun and "for her fans". some girls have that advantage too that their hubby's or themselves have good money already from something else and are just voyeurs and enjoy sex with hot people.

I think for a regular girl, that would be just a 9 to 5 worker bee. I think a career in porn would be something she should consider.

 

True some jobs and companies would be closed to her, But not all of them.

 

If I was a young man married to an uninhibited beautiful lady like Holly West I would consider accepting a career in porn for her.

 

In todays uncertain job market. I think it would be very smart of a young girl or couple to take the financial opportunity porn would provide.

Your maths a little off their. In order to make $250 000, she would have to do 250 scenes a year.

 

Even so, with weekends, I work 250 days a year for 8 hours a day. I'm sure as hell not making anywhere close to a quarter million.

good day,

I've beeped a cander at a check when I was on set and it was for a girl who is not that well known...and this was years ago and it was above your range for straight sex so...I'd imagine that number has increased....

 

I'm not sure but I think that the usually pay with a business check not a paycheck so I think that it is NOT taxed.....so that would mean that is is net 1000 a scene and there are girls that do 3-5 scenes a week maybe more...do the math...they make good money...I'm sure Uncle Sam takes a big chunk in April but still...I wouldn't mind getting paid 6 figures to have sex.....although even though it is sex I'm sure the job has its cons and is alot harder then one might expect....

Hell, with that range a girl could do just 5 blowjob scenes a week at the lower range and make a grand a week, before taxes. Not too shabby.

I'm not a math genius or anything but I think 15 to 25 guys at 1000 per is only 15,000to 25,000

 

If she makes a G note a scene( I think she is above that) she'd have to bang 150 to 250 times a year....thats not alot considering there are 365 days in a year...and alot of girls to mulitiple scenes a day...so yeah she probably works under 100 days a year...

Didn't Christian say he make around $600 a scene? And if he does, and the women make more than the men, then logic says the women are making more than $600 a scene....at least.

 

And Christian, if I remembered you saying that incorrectly, I apologize....I don't pay much attention to your posts.

I'm basing my opinion on old information, so this may not be accurate any longer. About 15 years ago when I briefly lived in the LA valley, I was a very casual accuaintance of a couple of porn starlets that were neighbors of mine.

 

Both said that they made the bulk of their money feature dancing; and the only reason they did any porn at all was to allow them to be a "feature".

 

The club where I worked didn't showcase feature dancers very often, as they always made the regular girls upset because their tips went down on those nights. So, I don't know if this is a viable way of making good extra cash any longer. At least several years ago, dancing was the money maker.

 

I know from my own experience as a lowly DJ, I made some killer money (at the time). By the time I got tips from all the girls and a few nice patrons, I would easily make 1,000 - 1,500 a shift.

i make 400 to 600 a scene, but if you average it out, its somewhere around 500 per scene if you include the BJ scenes, handjob, solo, whatever. And I do 25-30 scenes a month, not 20.

 

As for girls, the standard BG rate is now 1000 for girls in the business. 10 percent of which goes directly to the agent. And the rate goes up for different acts, BBG, creampie, double vag, Anal, double anal, DP, etc etc.

 

The business for girls works like this. If you are brand new and with Gold Star/LA Direct/A List/Spiegler/Foxxx/LATM, you are going to work 5 times a week for the first 3 months usually. So I would guesstimate that each girl makes somewhere around 14-15K a month for the first 3-6 months. After that, is where the drop off starts. Unless the girl does anal, IR, squirts, has a big butt, something to make her stand out, her workload is going to drop off, as new girls come into the business. Why hire Tyla Wynn when you can hire Brynn Tyler? So that's when girls really figure out if they can have some longevity in this business, or they will fall by the wayside. This is also when many of the girls turn to doing privates as well, which pay between 800-1500 dollars per hour.

 

If you held me at gunpoint, I would say that a top gonzo girl like jenna haze makes 200k a year, maybe a bit less because she doesnt have to work much to get that. A top contract girl makes maybe half that.

 

A top gonzo girl makes about 120k a year. And thats if she is doing really well and is popular. there are many financial pitfalls associated with being a female pornstar. There are illnesses, taxes, paying your agent, keeping up your appearance....mani/pedi, waxing, hair extensions (some hair extensions cost 1500 bucks), some have boyfriends that don't work, keeping up with the joneses, etc. etc.

 

anyone who says that female porn stars have an easy life are sadly mistaken.

Most of those 'pitfalls' are the same that non-pornstar girls are faced with as well.
