The porn industry is estimated to be at least $97 billion. Now that’s a huge amount of money for those who are employed in the industry as performers. The easy part about working as a porn actor or actress is that you don’t need much skills or training. Most of the times, you have to follow the non-verbal scripts set up by the directors. Most scripts don’t involve much talking unless you are employed in a high-end movie series, so you don’t have to worry about memorizing scripts or going off script. However, the most exciting thing about being a porn star is that you will earn a lot of money, more than what you would earn for a professional job. Whether it’s a one-time payment for a scene or monthly salary contract, the package is always attractive and irresistible.
While there are premium production studios that employ professional and seasoned performers, there are also many companies which are looking for amateur actors and actresses. Porn has thousands of niches and subcategories which range from soft porn to hardcore scenes. It has also been established that most people watch porn at night times, there are 68 million searches for porn in a day, 72 million people view porn sites in a month, companies have lost over 5 billion hours to porn surfing and over $4.9 billion a year is made by porn producers. The United States alone accounts for $2.84 billion in annual sales. Porn is a market with big numbers. So how much does a porn star earn?
How much a porn star makes depends on their location, experience, the scene they are willing to do and the company which they are shooting for. Performers are usually paid per scene, per hour or per project. There are stars that have been appearing in porn shoots for quite a long time, turning their first time appointment into a full-time career because it’s financially rewarding. The standard rate for female performers varies depending on the type of scene. A normal heterosexual scene will earn you at least $1000, a lesbian scene will earn you at least $700.
Extraordinary scenes pay more than normal sex scenes, for example gang bangs, anal intercourse and interracial scenes may pay up to 6 times the value of normal scenes. The female usually earns more than the male. If you are willing to do an extraordinary scene, you will earn at least $2000 and up to $6000 depending on your agent and other circumstances.
Generally hardcore scenes pay more than soft porn, group performances pay more than solo performances and nude acts pay more than fully clothed acts. Contact sex pays more than non-contact performances.
How To Find Porn Jobs
Getting a job as a sex performer is very difficult because agents don’t advertise in local newspapers and normal job sites. Adult material is not allowed on most mainstream publications, unless the publication is X-rated. For various reasons, you cannot just approach an adult company or send in an unsolicited application. The act of finding a potential candidate is very discreet and a company looking to hire has to keep a low profile. However, you don’t need to worry because I have compiled a list of companies which hire adult performers on a regular basis.
