Hi Dane,

So yeah, Mahi Mike err, someone sort of like him was asking how does the pr0n industry still make money, to which you (and myself) snickered @. Anyway, my question to you and all of CP is this: How DOES pr0n make money NOW? Really, how? W/ all of the no charge pr0n tubes out there, i'd like to know. Or, have they adjusted? (which i'm certain they have) and if so: how? How have they adjusted, from a biz per?

I mean, are 'flesh light' sales carrying them?:rolleyes:

TIA all.

Also Dane,

Honestly, have you ever glimpsed through the valley, ya' know, like over to Woodland Hills er umm, uhh, Aurora Hills (me thinks) and seen two girls in front of a camera filming, seriously?


Thank you Dane,
Thank you CP

I'm guessing people advertise on those sites, and thats how they make a lot of the money.

No, no offense taken. I just wasn't sure if you wanted other people to see your question or whatever it is you are seeking.

The way I figure, is that the more people that are watching it free, is like free advertising for the Porn companies. Those sites get them hooked, and people want more, so they sign up for sites where you can download unlimited to your computer, or you go out and buy a DVD.

that last part aint really true, much. I mean people hardly rent anymore, the video store has them ALL in stock.

For as many sites that are out there a good dumb portion still pay for it.. I used to live across the street from pricilla's.. They are packed nonstop with guys renting/buying dvds.. Then there is also a reason why so many pornstars have websites that flourish.. Also I do not think most porns are streamed available, I have looked for a few dvd's that I cannot find anywhere online unless you buy..

FFS, phone sex is still making money for some reason...

Bottom line, majority of the people are dumbshits..

I went to a Porn store the other day to buy a gag gift for my neighbors (they had a ceramic donkey from TJ, so I bought a dildo to make him a unicorn) and there were like 20 people browsing through the DVD section. People still buy porn.

I'm pretty sure that the porn industry is funded by grants from large foundations that support the arts.

It's a shame to see folks having to make these tough financial decisions. Rent or electric bill? Prescriptions or porn? One way or another, they'll be doing without something they need. This recession is killing our country. I blame Obama.

In part, I think that's why Obama is offering $8,000 tax credits to first-time porn buyers.

That and the sheer influx of new stars and amateurs that are cheaper to hire.. Then there is all the OnDemand hardcore porn now.. Why pay premium for stars when the companies can make more off of newcomers??

Then the cost of dvds 30-40 dollars new or online subscription or rental service that is way cheaper??

Sugardvd.com is a netflix version of porn..

Internet says the porn industry was 13billion in 2008, can't find numbers for this year..

No, Dane is NOT in that biz. Not by a longshot.

But, I do have a friend or two in that biz.

:D

The way the porn industry makes money is through web-traffic. I'm sure you've all noticed that when you go to your favorite porn site, there are pop-up ads and videos with ads embedded with the video. People DO hit those sites and they purchase, whether it's a download, cam girl, membership or DVD, money is exchanged.

Traffic is the currency of the porn industry and it's not even close to running out of funding.

I was watching Conan last night and he went down the street to Vivid entertainment and toured the building. They make porn pictures there.

There were several females that followed him around. Smokin hot i might add. So that was different. I and most of the public had never been in a porn movie producing building before.

Oh, that's actually Vivid Entertainment (Vivid Video) and it's about 5 minutes from my house.

I see porn chicks at the grocery store, drug store, 7/11 - you name it.

This is fucking awesome (from the LA Times article linked earlier in the thread):

"A few years ago the girls we got were OK, but not stellar models, and we were sometimes paying $2,500," said porn director Matt Morningwood, referring to a website he shoots for that features one woman and multiple male partners.

LMAO

Would any other newspaper in America print that with a straight face?

Or at all?

Thanks for the correction. You live an oh so different life out there. Which is awesome. I like hearing things from you as far as the hollywood scene and such. I thank you. :hail:

If shoes were reversed, i would try to tell my fellow chiefs fans as well. But i would also expect jealousy and such.

Its funny, people who dream that life get mad when someone they know actually do it. Jealous in short.

Oh sorry, Dude. I didn't mean to correct you, per se. And thanks for the kind words. I'm glad there are people that enjoy reading about some of my "Hollywood" experiences.

I thought it was funny when Larry Flynt and the guy from Girls Gone Wild petitioned for a bailout for the porn industry. They did make a good point, though, that they were getting hit harder than the auto industry and they employ more people.

Plus the pay sites cater to individual tastes and fetishes. Something you can't always get with free sites.

I knew a dude who had a porn site with his wife. They'd make thousands per month from guys that would purchase "her" underwear and high heels.

In reality, they'd just go to Target and Famous Football and buy the cheapest shit on the rack, mark it up 3,000% and ship it out.

There are some sick fuckers out there.
