“It’s not like it was, but still there are tonnes of people making money,” observes Mark Spiegler, a Los Angeles-based talent agent for female porn stars. “Making porn is not that expensive,” he adds. “If you can’t make money, you’re not very good at it.” The former day trader got into the industry after his cousin asked him to invest in a film he was making. He started his agency in 1999 and believes women need agents because they have a “short working life” and must maximise their opportunities. Competition is fierce, he says. “In the old days, girls fell into porn. Since the internet lots of women watch porn and aspire to be stars.” [FT]
