How much do pornstars make a year?
Work is typically paid based on the number and type of scenes. Women are now earning about $700 per scene, while men earn $400. The rates are lower for certain acts, such as fellatio, and higher for others, such as anal or double penetration. Rates have decreased over recent years as the amount of free content available on the internet has grown, reducing the demand for pay pornography. The standard rate per scene for women used to be $1,000, with many women making $150,000-$250,000 per year.
