Here’s How Much Money Porn Stars Actually Make

Unfortunately, we still live in a society where having money is essential to making one’s ends meet. As a result, we’re forced to toil away in tedious jobs. However, there are some people who actually have jobs that are pretty cool, and that list includes adult film stars. Now, they’ve finally revealed exactly how much these people make.

Derek Hay, the founder of LA Direct Models, recently spoke with the Independent on Tuesday to shed some light on this financial mystery. In the interview, he told them everything you’ve ever wanted to know about just how much these people make. The answers might be a bit more surprising than you might think.

He said, “For the right girl, for whatever reason which could vary, to do acts like their first anal scene, first interracial scene, first scene with three, four or five guys, those scenes could pay premium rates. A company’s studio would offer a particular girl a much higher rate to induce her to accept the offer to shoot that kind of scene.”

He continued by saying that, for a basic scene with a man, a woman performer could make around $1,000. For a scene with another woman, that rate drops to around $800. He has said, though, that these rates could fluctuate by as much as 20 percent for certain performers. That premium rate he was talking about is $2,000 to $6,000 for performer firsts such as anal.

He also mentioned that it’s “universally known” that women performers actually get paid a lot more than men due to agency and other factors. “I don’t think that adult stars make as much money as the general public perceives them to make” he said, “I don’t there’s anybody, even the biggest stars, who are making more than half a million a year, but if some of the top stars are making 3oo to 400 grand a year, by most people’s perceptions, that would still be a lot of money, I think”
