Society has a love/hate relationship with the ever-controversial (but always popular) adult entertainment industry. Adult entertainment has been there to spice up the lives of couples in the bedroom and helping other exercise their curiosity since before even the advent of the printing press. From comic books to literature to films and TV programs, the adult entertainment industry is one of the biggest areas of the entertainment industry as a whole.
There are currently millions of websites hosting adult photos and videos, sites which are now the leading source of revenue for filmmakers and professional actors and actresses, as well as proving to be goldmines for amateur talent. The moguls of the adult entertainment industry are particularly prolific: The archetypal adult entertainer has filmed more movies than most of the longest careers in Hollywood. But to be fair, movies in the adult entertainment field tend to be a bit shorter,with lower production values, making it easier to move between projects.
The adult entertainment industry is unique in that it is one of the rare industries in which women consistently make more money than their male colleagues. Female adult entertainers tend to have more 'celebrity' value, and can typically expect to be paid at least a third more than their male equivalents. Indeed, we recently took a look at the richest actors in the industry; you'll notice when reading below that many adult entertainment actresses reach dizzying heights of wealth that none of these actors have attained.
Many believe the adult entertainment industry is counterproductive in the fight for gender equality, while others hold that adult entertainment actresses are role models of feminine independence and strength. Call it whatever you will, but the female stars of the industry are certainly independently financially comfortable, at least. Some among the following 10 richest actresses in adult entertainment have become cultural icons, many even breaking through to mainstream film.
