does anybody know about porn industry pay?

No, I´m not going to write a porn script, but I have a research gap to fill and no idea whom to ask. I would like my protagonist to rent out his house as a porn film set while he is in financial need. Does this make sense?? I wonder if any AirBnB guest wouldn´t be a better paying house guest. Or a real filmcrew, as they usually pay about a month rent for a few days of shooting. However, a porn set would get my protagonist into way more trouble... Anybody have any insights on this?? Thank you!

Paula, I just Googled "porn industry pay" and found several sites.  I pulled up this one and I think it might help some in answering your question.  At least it gives salaries porn stars can expect.

Rashida Jones (Parks and Rec) produced a documentary "Hot Girls Wanted"-- which is on Netflix-- that covers the amateur porn industry, guest house and wage practices for porn workers, and other issues that may be very relevant for the story you mention.

Thank you, both Billie and Micheal!

Since the link is about the pay of "actors" I will have to get Netflix now to find that film, I guess. Maybe just some more random searching the web will help. But it´s rather full of porn and not much about the "how to" aspect of it. Thanks for the speedy replies!
