From Duke to Dollars: How To Make Money In Adult Entertainment


One of the hottest stories in the news is Belle Knox, a student from Duke University that is doing porn to make money to pay for college and expenses.  I find it silly that her fellow classmates are judging her for the choices she made to ensure her future. The adult industry is a very lucrative business and can help many people and has helped many people like myself to create a better financially secure life.

Knox, like many other individuals struggle, in their daily lives to try to make ends meet and to educate themselves to reach higher levels of success. The adult industry provides a platform for people to generate revenues to be able to achieve their dream and goals of success without worrying about financial security.

So you already know my name is Shy Love

If you’re an avid porn viewer, you might know me from some of the films I’ve been in over the past decade, or my work as a producer more recently.

I’ve been involved in the adult film industry for more than 10 years.

As a performer, a director, a producer, and a talent agent, I’ve been blessed to see what this industry is like from the inside and out.

Let me tell you this:

If I were given a chance to go back in time and choose between taking the road I took in the adult industry, or going with the finance career my parents had planned for me, I would not have done ANYTHING differently.

The adult industry has been good to me.

In my career, I’ve made more than 7 figures, and I’m still making more money.

More importantly, I earn my living working in mansions and five star hotels, surrounded by beautiful naked women and talented film crews every single day, dividing my time between beautiful locations like Hollywood, San Diego and Las Vegas.

So, let me ask you a question.

Do you watch porn?

Do you work a regular 9-5 job that you hate (or at best find “tolerable”)?

Have you ever wondered if you could make money online, either to supplement your income or go into business full-time.

Then you’re going to want to read the rest of this article.

But first, I want to tell you a little about the adult entertainment climate today and why there has NEVER been a better time to get on the ground floor as an amateur porn producer.

There’s Never Been A Better Time Than NOW To Get Into The Adult Entertainment Industry!

I would know, because I’ve been at home in BOTH adult entertainment worlds:

The OLD world of huge Hollywood-esque corporations, and the NEW world of smaller producers and tube sites.

It’s THIS experience that makes me so confident when I say that TODAY is the time of the smart amateur producer/talent.

To give you a little perspective, let me tell you what the porn industry was like when I was starting out.

In my first year in the porn industry, the world was a completely different place.

VIVID, WICKED, HUSTLER, ADAM & EVE, DIGITAL PLAYGROUND and a few other entertainment companies dominated EVERYTHING. Something like 70% of all video sales came from that one company, which just CRUSHED the competition of small time producers who couldn’t keep up with the costs of producing physical videos and getting them stocked in video stores.

I remember going to shoots that looked more like Hollywood sets than anything else.

$100,000 worth of camera equipment on the set.

Producers driving lamborghinis.

Sets in some of LA’s most expensive mansions.

It was all enough to make your head spin.

I actually remember one time a producer came up to me and asked if I’d be comfortable doing a scene in the house where the Tate murders happened.

That’s just what the industry was like back then… Big business.

But Then… The Internet Happened!

And with the internet, came piracy!

Suddenly, people weren’t BUYING porn anymore, they were DOWNLOADING it.

People would still pay for memberships and things like that, but that was HARDLY enough to support a huge business like the old school porn industry.

A lot of people said the business was dying.

In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

Porn wasn’t dying, it was just democratizing.

For every huge company that went under, a million new “amateur” companies popped up.

Membership sites skyrocketed in popularity.

The cost of film equipment plummeted.

In short, the locus of power in the industry shifted from huge companies to the little guy.

Fast forward to today.

Membership sites and small production companies and web cam models are a big part of what rules the adult entertainment world.

New producers are coming up from nowhere, making money with just a camera and a hotel room booking.

The secret of their success?


With video equipment costing no more than $2000, distribution being practically FREE on the internet, and talent being easily accessible by e-mail, technology has really made porn production a LOT cheaper than it was in the past.

And yet, the DEMAND for porn is stronger than ever!

THIS is why an adult entertainment business is one of the BEST WAYS TO MAKE MONEY TODAY!
