There's a well-worn porn cliche about the college student-turned-actress who decided to have sex in front of a camera in order to pay off her student loans. Like many cliches, it's rarely true - but it's worth wondering: How big are paychecks in the porn business, anyway? Money is a topic that's shrouded in mystery in the adult entertainment world. While it's widely presumed to be a multibillion dollar industry, there's no real firm accounting to back that up. Companies regularly inflate their numbers when speaking publicly and may deflate them at opportune times as well.
More extreme acts, as you might expect, command higher rates.

Men might be a critical part of porn films, but this is one industry where the balance of pay certainly leans toward women.
With men, there's no pay differential depending on the sex act.
Generally, male performers receive a fixed amount per scene or day, depending on how the shoot was booked. And while there are a few top tier actors, such as Manuel Ferrara, who command top dollar, most earn considerably less.
It takes more than performers on screen to make an adult film, of course. While the production values typically aren't on the same level as a Hollywood film and the writing is generally skipped via the fast forward button, they're still roles that need to be filled.
One difference between an adult film and a more mainstream one, aside from the sex, is that directors are a lot more hands-on when it comes to the filmmaking process, sometimes securing locations, ensuring lighting is correct, picking up the food for the craft services table and sometimes even acting as the film's cameraperson.
Shoots for most productions typically last two to four days.
Tentpole porn films can take four to eight days. Virtually all film shoots include still photograph sessions, which are either sold separately or used to market the film online. And, of course, every actor and actress needs their makeup done just right.
While films and scenes from them are the most visible part of the industry, smart performers don't limit their revenue streams to just that part of the business.
Feature dancing and product endorsements, among other things, can be ancillary income streams, which can equal or even exceed the amount made doing shoots.
Feature dancing can be especially lucrative if you've got a large fan base.
Performers earn an appearance fee, which varies widely, as well as any tips from patrons. And many performers bring along merchandise to sell to fans.
Affiliating with a line of adult novelties can also be lucrative. Generally, there's a base payout for that, but some companies offer a percentage of each product sale.
The more items that bear an actresses' name, body and face on the packaging or the product, the bigger the check.
So how much does a porn star make? Six-figure incomes are likely common for popular stars, though that's far from an industry average.
Ultimately, assuming they have a decent agent, a performer's salary comes down to three things - two of which are in their control: Their work ethic and frequency, their entrepreneurial spirit and their popularity. Porn is an industry that regularly chews up and spits out performers.
Many quit after just one scene or after a few months. Some stick around for a few years, but then disappear.
In general, a director of a porn film - an actual film, rather than a short - will earn $1,$1, per day. In extreme cases, when he or she is required to Kitten, Actress: India's Casting Call.
