Thinking About A Career In Porn? Here’s How Much Everyone Gets Paid
Are you thinking about a diving cock-first into a career in porn? You know all of the perks of being a porn star, but can you legitimately make a living wage by slanging dick? Let’s check out the salaries of not only porn stars, but the behind-the-scenes workers who help create magical, magical pornographic films.
For a sex scene between a man and a woman, CNBC reports that the average porn actress typically earns between $800 and $1,000, depending on the studio’s budget. Top-tier female performers like Alexis Texas, Nikki Benz, Jessica Jane, Stoya and Joanna Angel can earn as much as $1,500 to $2,000. Meanwhile, newcomers don’t fare very well and earn as little as $300. However, those porn stars willing to perform “extreme acts” in porn can make $1,800 to $2,500. Females who engage in woman-on=woman porn can earn between $700-$1,200.
There seems to be a glass dildo ceiling because the average male porn actor will experience a gender pay gap and only earns approximately $500-$600 per scene. Giant male porn stars can expect to make around $1,500. But apparently the real money is in gay porn where popular performers can make as much as $5,000 for a shoot.
