Women and Porn Industry: the Reasons

There are many reasons why a woman may enter the porn industry. To find out these reasons we must go right to the source. Why not ask a famous woman porn star why she does it. Ask why she would want to make a living out of having sex. Many female porn stars have said that they are in the industry because of the money. Porn is a billion dollar industry as money is made through the selling of pornography magazines and movies. Plus the internet is a huge money maker for the porn industry. There are thousands of websites that offer pornographic videos, pictures and even stream live web-cams. Depending on what you wish to see you can watch live footage of people having sex or engaging in other sexual acts. There is also a big market in the phone sex industry. Porn is literally everywhere.

A woman can make a lot of money in the porn industry. Some female porn stars have become so popular that they live in Hollywood mansions. It is easier to make thousands of dollars having sex then it is to work at a fast-food restaurant. A woman in the porn industry has to work less and makes more money in a shorter amount of time. The earning potential is incredible for a woman in this industry.

Some women say that they choose the porn industry because they enjoy having sex. They feel that they are good at sex and this is how they want to earn a living. Many female porn stars are not afraid to brag about their in-bed habits. Some female porn stars have even written books such as the popular “How to Have Sex Like a Porn Star.” There are so many different markets that a porn star can tap into. Female porn stars have their own accessory lines, lingerie lines and much more. Not all of the reasons for a woman to enter the porn industry are positive.


Many women enjoy modeling and performing in the porn industry

Some women enter the porn industry for negative reasons. Some of the women have been sexually abused or molested and then is how they deal with that pain. Other women choose the porn industry to pay for drug habits or because they feel they can not make money any other way. Some women who have been teenage runaways have entered the porn industry because it allows them to get off the streets. Other women suffer from low self esteem and working in porn makes them feel sexy. There are as many negative reasons as positive reasons on why a woman may enter the porn industry.

While some people look down on and frown at women working in the porn industry we must realize that it is their choice. Some women who are struggling to become models or actresses will do porn films so they are not forced to live on the streets. The biggest reason for women in porn is the money. Several female porn stars have made millions of dollars in the porn industry. The porn industry can be a stepping stone to other things in life. We all start somewhere and the porn industry is where some women choose and want to be.
