There is a lot of money to be made in the adult industry and it’s a sector that is open to pretty much anyone. It can seem like a tough business to get into though, so we’re going to guide you through how to make money in the adult industry.

You can make money in many different ways and don’t ever need to do anything you feel uncomfortable with. There is a niche and an audience for everything so you can build your income and work on your side hustle without compromising yourself.

How do you actually get into making cash? We’re going to talk you through three of the most common ways you can make cash from adult content, covering:

  • Making a regular monthly income from adult work
  • Creating a passive income from adult videos
  • Charging premium prices for top-tier content

How to make a monthly income from adult content

When you use a site, you can become a creator and post your adult videos online. It’s a place where you can bring your existing social media following so they can see your spicier side.


Here’s a step-by-step guide to making a monthly income on an adult site:

  1. Build your social media presence. Start posting sexy, erotic photos on your social media, add hashtags, and engage with similar accounts to build your audience.
  2. Create a SinParty account. This is where you can direct your new fans when they want to see something you can’t post on Instagram or TikTok.
  3. Create your content. Some people will make adult videos with their partner, others will make solo content – it’s up to you. You can even choose to hide your face if you want.
  4. Share your link. Make sure people know where they can find all the content they want and that they can buy your subscription on SinParty.
  5. Maintain your profile. Your subscribers will pay you a fixed monthly fee and will want to see regular uploads in return.

You’ll be able to build a monthly income from the people who subscribe – as long as you keep them happy and post often to keep them engaged.

How to create a passive income from adult videos

It’s always a good idea to have different income streams when you’re in the adult entertainment business. Having your monthly payments come in from your subscribers is great, but that does require a regular commitment to posts.

Either alongside or instead of your subscription MyParty content, you can sell pay-per-views, known as PPVs. This means that you make an adult video and put a one-time price on it. Anyone can buy it and watch it as many times as they like.


The benefit of this is that you only need to make one video to sell. You can promote that particular video to your fans on your social media profiles. When you make a great sex tape you can make money off it for months or even years to come.

Prices for a PPV vary wildly, from a few dollars for a short video to $50-100 when we’re talking about 45 minutes, full-sex videos, or shorter videos including multiple performers.

You can sell your PPVs alongside or instead of your subscription content on SinParty.

How to make money from personalized content

Everyone has something that they really want to see from an adult entertainer. It can be hard to make a video that everyone will like and will want to pay for.

Luckily, it has become a trend for adult entertainment fans to request custom videos that shows exactly what they’re looking for. As a creator on SinParty, you can take a custom request from one of your subscribers or any other site visitor.

You get to choose your per-minute rate for a custom request and your buyer fills in a form to say what they want. They pay for it upfront and you’ll receive the payment once you upload your video – you have 10 days to deliver before your buyer is refunded.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the more specialized and kinky the request is, the more you can charge for it. When you make specialist, premium videos you can charge premium prices.

What type of adult content can I make money from?

There are plenty of niches out there that you can choose to monetize. Some creators will stick with one niche and others will explore more. Both can be good for your adult business – sticking with one kink or fetish will build you a super loyal fanbase, whereas a range of niches makes sure you can connect with lots of different people.

Some examples of videos that you can make, that will work for subscriptions, PPVs, or custom requests, include:

  • Jerk-off instructions, where you guide your viewer in how to play with themselves
  • Feet videos and photos, where you don’t even need to show your face or get naked
  • The Girlfriend Experience, or GFE, where you treat your buyer like a partner with good morning texts, sexting, and some basic nudes
  • Findom, where you act as an online dominatrix and tell your fans to pay you to do normal – and sexual – things.

Making money from adult content

There are a lot of people who are willing to pay for great adult content. While there is a lot of free videos online, it doesn’t suit everyone’s tastes.

Making paid-for content can help you create different incomes. You can make monthly recurring income from fans who want to support you and see regular photos and videos. Uploading videos as PPV means you can make even more sales and taking custom requests makes you even more money as an added bonus.
