Money Pornstars Make

How much money do porn stars make?

We all know that the porn industry is a multi billion-dollar business so with that being said, there is no doubt you can make a lot of money in it. Rather you are a director, model, or recruiter. The point is that there is real good money to be made if you are in the porn biz.

So, let’s talk a little about how much a performer can make doing porn. Of course it comes down to who you are that determines how much money you can make. For instance, if you are a young attractive female who is in decent shape. You would be able to earn industry-standard rates which break down like this:

  • Solo masturbation scene: $300-$400
  • Girl on Girl sex scene: $500-$700
  • Boy/Girl oral sex scene (BJ only): $400-$500
  • Boy on Girl sex scene: $800-$1000
  • Boy/Boy/Girl Three-way sex scene (Vaginal only): $1000-$1200
  • Boy/Girl anal sex scene: $1300-$1400
  • Double penetration sex scene: $1600-$2000

It doesn’t stop there for you though. The more experience you gain and the bigger your name gets overtime, you can start earning premium rates by demanding a pay increase.

Now what about the guys? How much can a male performer make doing porn? For men it breaks into two catagories. The straight side of things and then you have the gay side. Gay porn for guys pays much more than if a guy were to appear in a straight scene. So let’s go over the differences between the pay rates in straight porn vs. gay porn:

Straight porn.

  • Boy/Girl oral sex scene (BJ only): $200-$300
  • Boy on Girl sex scene: $300-$500

Gay porn.

  • Solo masturbation scene: $1000-1500
  • Boy/Boy oral sex scene: $2000-$2500
  • Boy on Boy sex scene (Top): $3000-$4000
  • Boy on Boy sex scene (Bottom): $4000-$5000

However, just as female models are able to work their way up to earning a premium rate, guys can do so as well. Some top straight male pornstars can get up to $800 per boy/girl shoot.

So, basically when comes to how much money you can make as a porn star, it all depends on what category you fit into and what you are willing to do.
