this varies on how much you work, and if you are a man or a woman.
Men get treated poorly in the porn industry. The focus is on the
women who are treated well and paid well (of course this point can be
argued, but it is a fact that women get treated better than men).
Your average run of the mill porn actress will get about $500 a day.
The big stars will get way more. If you are a star and you work a lot
you can easily make six figures. But put into context that's still
not a lot since you have to take into consideration the average career
for a female porn star is like 5 years, if they're lucky. Guys can
work longer but like I said, they get paid less. There are only a few
males in the industry that can be considered "Woodsmen" that means
directors can depend on them to perform on cue. Ron Jeremy has been
known to be able to countdown from 10 and orgasm on 1. With a room
full of people, this takes skill. The real money in porn is directing
and distribution. Somebody like Seymour Butts does well because he
combines his directing with his distribution, plus the merchandising.
Can you say, "Cha-Ching".
There is a small group of females who have been strong on the business
side and have done well for themselves. Jill Kelly and Jenna Jamison
are two women who have combined movies, with their websites with
merchandising. They are most certainly millionaires. The majority of
porn stars are NOT millionaires though. Plus, once you do porn
there's nothing else you can really do. If you appear on camera in a
porn it will be very difficult for you to get legitimate work.
