The 12 Most Popular Porn Stars According to Fortune

Most popular US porn Stars 2018

The business magazine Fortune did some deep digging research and came up with a list of the 12 most popular porn stars currently active in the industry. They call them the »Dirty Dozen«.

Fortune put together a list of the most popular porn stars working right now. In doing so they are adopting a popular but quite hypocritical approach of eating a cake and keeping it too. While welcoming the traffic generated by a click-bait list like that, they also call the female stars on the list »dirty dozen« distancing themselves and adding to the social stigma the industry is fighting against for years.

With an ironic smirk, they write: »Fame in the adult entertainment industry is a fickle thing. Many performers leave the industry before anyone knows their name. Some experience a meteoric rise, only to fall in the course of a few months. Others prove eternal.«

The list compiled though probably is quite accurate. Fortune talked to industry insiders and tried to measure fan interest. As Fortune is a business magazine economic facts are featured as well and make it an interesting read. »Globally, pornography is a $97 billion industry, according to Kassia Wosick, assistant professor of sociology at New Mexico State University. Between $10 and $12 billion of that total comes from the United States.«

The magazine notices that there are vast differences in payment and revenue for porn stars. Top stars can earn up to $2,000 for a typical male/female scene while the standard payment is still at $800-1,000.
Those considered superstars in the business do have other revenue streams like endorsement deals, customized videos, licensing deals and of course their own websites. Some of the top performers also own their own studios and venture into other businesses. Fortune compiled the list by counting nominations for AVN and XBIZ awards as well as Google trend rankings.
