The 10 Richest Female Porn Stars of 2013

Everyone loves a porn star. Or at least, they must do – given the amount of money, publicity and fame the darlings of the industry garner on a daily basis. Today’s big name porn stars have even begun to make the transition from adult entertainment to mainstream media and faces that made themselves known on the x-rated circuit are fast becoming household name; some have even revealed themselves as having serious acting chops. The porn business, while on the decline financially relative to the ‘Golden Age’ of the late 70s and early 80s, is still viewed as a big business with plenty of earning potential. Some reports have put annual revenue in the adult entertainment business at between $10 and $14 billion – although, as Forbes reported, porn tends to ‘exaggerate the size of everything’ with a more accurate annual revenue estimate coming in at about $1 billion. In contrast with most traditional industries, the gender gap is flipped on its head (no pun intended) in the adult entertainment industry, with men finding they’re generally less well-paid than women for their work. On average, men can make between $300 and $1,000 for a scene, and women will garner about $500 to $1,500 a scene depending on the – ahem – complexity of the interaction. The amounts vary widely according to the popularity of the star, how new they are to the business, what type of scenes are being filmed, and the sexual orientation of the scene. For example, male-on-male actors can make as much as twice the amount that their straight counterparts would. Women, though, are the generally the most coveted stars of any scene, movie or photo shoot and the more in-demand these stars are, the more money they can demand to appear in front of the camera.
We’ve collated ten of the highest paid, most popular female entertainers in the adult industry this year – we’ve assessed their popularity on how often they’re searched, how often they appear as ‘key words’ on the major tube sites, how active their careers are and – most definitively – how much money these women make.

10. Nikki Benz- $1 million


Although Nikki is at the lower end of the top 10, a net worth of $1 million is still – by most standards – a substantial amount for minimal hours. This Ukrainian-born porn star started auditioning for porn after she turned 18 and has since been in more than 180 videos. She’s raised her profile by posing for several adult magazines and dedicated followers have cheered every time that she’s been nominated for film industry awards – several of which she’s won.
