Adult Film/Daily Pornstar Pay Rate in the Porn Industry [ Follow-Up ]

Hey Mike,
I just got a few more questions for you but first I would to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your good advice.

This is about my last follow up question,if a daily paycheck is the case, what guarantees that the models will come back for the next shoot?
But at the same time, I don't care about them working other sets while working mines, just as long as they show up on my set on time willing to work and not share details about my film to others.
Can your talent agency access big name stars such as Tori Black, Bree Olsen or Tommy Pistol?

My email address is I tried to contact you through your website but my computer would let me and my adult website is not fully completed yet, so is there another way to contact you for doing business with you?

Hey there Raymond,

Thanks for your patience while waiting for me to get back to you.

The up-front payment I mentioned was based on "If we've never heard of you or your Company," and whether or not you have a high-value adult-industry references or not.

It's kind of like the "scales of justice". Who has more experience/juice? If a brand new agent (one that nobody has ever heard of... one with no clout) - for example - gets a call from Quentin Tarantino to book one of his clients, then he's - within reason - going to have to go along with most of whatever Mr. Tarantino wants... if he's smart.

If, on the other hand, a brand-new (no experience) B-movie producer gets an opportunity to book (for example) Dakota Fanning from her agency (WME... the top mainstream American talent agency, and also the world's first-ever talent agency), then the B-movie producer is going to have to go along with(in reason) whatever WME stipulates.

So... as a porn producer with no experience, you will pretty much need to go along with the demands - within reason - of the porn model(s) agency (or scout and sign your own talent).

As far as the adult actors you mentioned (Tori Black, Bree Olsen & Tommy Pistol), none of these are clients of our Company, and I therefore cannot contact them.

You are welcome to e-mail our office through our website,

Thanks again Raymond!

Mike began his career in the entertainment industry as a talent rep for a large, well-respected talent management Company for S.A.G. actors and fashion models. The Company has been in business for for about a quarter-Century (25 years).

In 2006, since the Company was then based in the porn capital of the world (the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles), Mike suggested to the President of the Company that they open a division for adult film models. The President accepted, and Mike was put in charge of leading the new division. For the first few months, he went to work for a couple different porn producers to “learn the ropes” of the adult industry. In early 2007, the Company’s adult industry division ( opened its doors. Mike was named Senior Vice President.

Since that time,’s reputation and connections have grown immensely. is now considered to be the top talent management Company for new models in the North American porn industry, and the only adult talent management company capable of promoting its clients for “Crossover Modeling” (promoting its clients for mainstream acting, modeling, dance, and book authoring, in addition to promoting them for porn.)

Since 2007, Mike the Talent Manager has developed personal relationships with the presidents, casting directors, talent coordinators, production directors and “shot callers” of almost every legitimate producer of pornography in the United States.
