Even though the porn industry chews up and spits out many girls each year, big money attracts new talent like honey attracts flies. How much exactly? Figures range from $600 to $1,000 per scene for decent sluts and may even reach $5,000 for well-known names. But pornstars have also found many other ways to bring in extra income. Like producing and directing movies, putting their name on sex toys or migrating to Snapchat porn.
So when you add everything up, a popular performer can easily smash a million net worth milestone. Thanks to rich actors and actresses, we can finally bring you this list of the richest male and female pornstars. You’ll be surprised just how wealthy some of them are.
