Thread: Is There Really $$ in Porn?

    Is There Really $$ in Porn?

    I've been wasting time lately looking at fat-old-bald-guy-bangs-hot-nymph videos and wonder if these escapades actually pay or break even? For those capitalistic types who would say "of course it pays or they wouldn't stay in business" I think just like authors who take the vanity press route (pay to have their own books printed and usually lose $$) being in porn production can be self-indulgent - not that there is anything wrong with that

    Considering porn actresses get paid 1000$+ for a shooting, i think it'd be cheaper to just pay for escorts. Unless money is no object , you want to record it and you get off sharing it with the public..

    I gotta say, I'm definitely not a fan of old fat guys in porn videos.

    Only the top porn actresses get $1000+ a day for shooting scenes. Most get far less.

    If you are an old guy, you would want the old guy to be in the scene. It is purely done for the fantasy of old guys. If you are not an old guy yet, don't worry, you'll get there. The alternative may be less appealing.

    There seems to be confusion on your question.. According to the anwsers?
    .... The male actor in adult xxx is payed greater than the female.( but you must be able to cum on cue: command: .. And last long enough to go through all the angles ...
    On average here in Montreal, the male can fetch upwards of 500$ a scene..
    While the lady gets 300$.

    Maybe I am thinking of web-porn, not the stuff on DVD which is higher end and more polished. Some of this stuff is done with the performer holding the camera while he gives it to a hot young babe. Since I can text and drive at the same time I think I'd be qualified lol. These are the guys I really wonder if they get any financial payback for their efforts.

    These fees seem low. Even for 1000$/day is low. Seems to me you can make more money escorting and not leave a permanant record of your work (only fond memories for H101). Maybe some girls do porn so they can make more money escorting? Hence the traveling porn stars that escort on EROS? Or the ones that dance at Dejavue?

    Also, I will watch a movie at the hotel once in awhile and 9 ot of 10 suck. You know there is no script. The fantasy they say they are going to create (Mothers and best friend, step moms, Wifes cheating, Secretaries) all suck. You can see that the scenes are improptu and that the idea popped into someones head a few minutes prior to the shot. And they charge everyone $14.95 to watch this shit.

    A lot of the porn stars, at least the women, make far more money when hitting the strip club circuit. That's where the real money is for the actresses.

    Women choose the porn route and escorting for different reasons. Young women become porn actresses because they think being in porn will give them recognition. They dismiss that being in porn may come back to haunt them later, or they don't care. Many do porn before escorting because they have a dim view of escorting. I remember an interview with a producer on a late night radio show. He said that he would get scores of girls at the Trade shows wanting to do porn, but would not give the light of day to being an escort.

    Women choose escorting because they want money quickly and do not want to it to be known that they are an escort, or involved in any type of sex trade, such as pornography. It is true that some porn actresses do escort, and they probably do not care what someone else thinks.

    In the US, the women generally make more money per scene. It also varies based on the scene. Girl/Girl pays the least with dual penetration and anal paying the most. In porn, you are only shooting with a limited amount of guys while an escort has to deal with whoever answers the door. Many use porn as a means to feature in strip clubs.

    It really is not easy money in the long run for either careers. I casually knew one porn actress that burned herself out in 3 months.

    You are right it is not easy. These women have to do weird stuff like double penetration, 2 or more guys at once. anal with really hung guys. So many try it. I bet the average career length is less than 6 months.

    Isn't this ironic. Last time I tried to buy my way a three-way and girl-girl show the agency wanted a fortune!

    The free sites are posts from pay sites hoping that you sign up for their site. There are so many of these sites that you can get good quality porn without paying. You can say the supply is saturated.

    Some of that pay porn is pretty nasty.
