The Porn industry makes more than $15 billion per year. Porn stars seem to have an easy life. Have sex, get money for that. But there is so much more to this profession. Porn industries exploit men and women to gain profit in the name of entertainment. Most of the time, the porn stars do not even get the share of the profit they deserve. Many of them have to face mental and physical abuse. Most get addicted to drugs and are destroyed by it. Because of piracy and free online porn, most of them have to take up second jobs to support themselves. In spite of all these, there are a few who know how to play their cards right in this industry and have successfully climbed their way up to the top.
