Cherie DeVille is an adult film star who offers Bridget an inside look at today’s porn industry. They cover how Cherie got into porn, how her parents reacted, why she loves it, the secret to her decade-long career, the perception versus the reality of the industry, the social stigma that comes with it, how it’s changed in the last 10 years, and how women have more power and control in the industry than ever before. They also discuss having an emotionally monogamous relationship, shame, boundaries, the struggle of kids today, how damaging porn addiction can be, the fact that conservatives and pornstars are on the same side when it comes to the arbitrary control and restrictions that financial institutions have over one’s ability to sell a product, and why we should all be terrified of what this means for the future.

    One question I wish you had asked Cherie was, “How can you make money on porn these days when there’s so much free content on the internet?”

    Good question.  People in the music business say that there is almost no money in selling records/CDs/downloads anymore.  Most of their money is made in touring. Maybe some product endorsements, but I don’t think you see nearly as many musicians as actors and athletes in commercials.

    I have heard  that some X-rated actresses make a substantial amount performing in strip clubs.  Perhaps Bridget will have a similar guest in the future and will ask your question.

    True, but I believe for rock bands, it’s always been that way.  Self-publishing allows bands to bypass the record companies, but my guess is most don’t have the skills to do marketing and internet sales . . .

    Update: Speaking of podcasts, I got a funny story for you.  Will send a PM.
