Do Amateur Porn Girls Make Good Money?

Do Amateur Porn Girls Make Good Money?

Sitting with the knowledge that the porn industry saw an annual world revenue of about 97 billion dollars (in 2006), just how much money can amateur porn girls make in this day and age?

In 2017, I was haphazardly travelling Europe as a pseudo-refugee with my husband. I had no job and was desperately looking for any remote work I could find. I always knew I wanted to be a writer, and several months later, would fall into the writing gig that I currently have and love.

Before I was able to secure my new found love in journalism, I was asking any and every friend I had if they had any idea how I would be able to make money online. The suggestions I got ranged anywhere from the humdrum everyday normalcy of medical transcription, to the absolutely insane sounding suggestion of “cam girl”. Prior to receiving this last suggestion from one of my most internet and tech savvy friends (the man runs one of the largest video game development companies in the US), I didn’t even know that such a position existed.

I’m not embarrassed to say that I looked into the possibility, or that I had even toyed with the reality of becoming one of the many amateur porn girls out there. For me, the fit wasn’t right. I lived in a van, and my internet situation was definitely nowhere near the quality required of someone who needed to be available for hours of online streaming video chats. But what I found out about the potential cash cow of this industry both fascinated and shocked me.

Good amateur porn girls can make bank

As a matter of fact, the porn industry is one of the very few in the US where women can, and regularly do, out earn men. On average, it’s reported that professional female pornstars can make up to six figures a year. While it’s slightly unreasonable to think that amateur porn girls can make this much money, it turns out they may actually not be that far behind.

Porn, like any other taboo, gets old when you’ve seen it all before. The stale and contrived plot lines are almost as cliché as the looks of the average pornstar herself. People get tired of the same old “O” face and just another squeekingly fake moan.

Amateur porn is quickly becoming the niche that is in demand, because porn viewers want to see someone get laid, as opposed to “accidentally bumping into the delivery boy and then accidentally getting perfect shots of penetration, while accidentally pretending to orgasm in the most obscenely false way”. Pornography consumers want something quick and something relatable. Websites like PornHub and RedTube are more than aware of this, as nowadays over half of their expansive inventories are comprised of choice clips of amateur porn.  An added bonus is that the realism that amateur porn brings to the table work for both viewers and creators alike.

Amateur porn girls can make more money, simply because they have less overhead. Production costs are next to nothing, as most viewers are looking for more relatable content in their porn these days, so the need for costly production equipment, or expensive plastic surgery to get you looking like the highly sought after botox beauties of the 80’s, are nonexistent. Not only that, but viewers seem to enjoy exactly what it is that couples are bringing to the table. “tattoos” and “big natural tits” are some of the most searched for terms among these types of amateur porn sites.

It takes work though

Because of this huge push for amateur porn, millions of girls are surging to the internet in hopes to cash in on this new wave cash cow. But it may not come that easy. Be a Cam Star, an internet site that’s dedicated to helping amateur porn girls turn their dreams into dollars, reports that while amateur porn girls can make decent money, it definitely takes a bit of leg work.

Making money in any industry requires a bit of business savvy and marketing knowledge. Knowing how to find your target audience, and making sure you know how to get yourself seen by them are one of the first, and biggest hurdles you’ll have to jump in become part of the amateur porn girls craze.

Also knowing what kind of innovative content to produce, and making a lot of it, are great ways to get your name and your brand out there, and among the top grossing amateur porn girls. Constantly updating and innovating your content is an absolute most for anyone who is trying to make decent money as an amateur porn girl.

Another thing to keep in mind is to be aware of who you sell your content to. Going at it alone, or trying to create your own site is next to a death sentence for contemporary cam society. “There are just too many excellent sites that collate a wide array of content for the viewer. Even if a consumer has their favorite performer, they still like to go through a site that provides them with options, should the need arise” said a representative from the site PiggyBank Girls, who specializes in amateur porn content and representing amateur porn girls to the fullest extent. “Know your porn, and know your business.”
