When It Comes to Health Care, Are Porn Stars Getting Screwed?

By Bethany St. James

No matter how you look at it, sex is a risky business. It's also been the subject of innumerable political debates in a veritable cornucopia of topics. In recent months, the use of condoms in porn has been one of the most hot button debate topics within the sex industry. For those that haven't cared or haven't heard, new legislation was put into place mandating that adult performers be required to use condoms. However, there seems to be a new issue on the horizon for those involved in the political side of pornography.

Yesterday, a cute little piece published in The Huffington Post was brought to my attention. It was written by porn newcomer Amber Peach. Although I was not familiar with Ms. Peach, I found her subject matter interesting and quite amusing. In the article, Amber explains that most performers are making less than $30,000 a year. Long gone are the days of “porn stars” and high dollar contracts with production companies. The reason for that is no secret, at least to those who have lived and worked within the sex industry for the past 30 years. The entire adult entertainment industry is in trouble.
