    I'm considering starting a small porn studio. I've taken part in a porn shoot before, and realised that I could produce good content with just me and the girl, shooting in POV. I know that the best way to make money from this is to set up a paywalled site and have traffic go to it from Pornhub clips, like just like all the big players (Brazzers, etc.) do, but my problem is this: to open such a site I figure I would need at least 40 videos. How do I cover my costs until I'm able to reach that number? I've looked at Clips4sale and Onlyfans as options, but I wonder if they would be enough to cover the costs of the initial uphill battle, or if I would go broke before producing enough content for a proper site.

    From my research, models charge anything between £300 for a complete amateur to £800 for some of the top stars. What do you think?

    I've never understood vanilla porn. Why is there a need for so many videos ? They are all the same. Only thing that differs is the woman. With 10-20 womans you cover all the spectrum that exists. There is no need for more than 200 vanilla porn videos out there.

    Sorry for being a little offtopic by as a bdsm person who never watched a single vanilla video in his life, I want to ask: What are you bringing in that your competitors don't ? Why should one buy from you instead of another place ? I know it will work, same as other similar business work too, but I just never understood the idea behind vanilla porn. Why are people still creating such videos when everything has been already covered ?

    @ayumipie No, I do mean £800. Keep in mind that is per scene. And maybe that doesn't buy you Phoenix Marie, or whoever's big these days, but certainly someone who can draw traffic only from their name. @Blakester : It's not a boyfriend-and-girlfriend thing. I'm going to be hiring actresses, which will be my main cost other than creating and keeping up the site, as well as some initial legal costs (don't want to end up in Her Majesty's Prison)

    Well, I can't really answer that, since I think it really comes down to your own specific taste. The stats clearly show that there is massive demand for more-or-less vanilla porn. My niche will be strictly POV with girls from all over Europe.

    Either UK or Germany. Uk has peculiar laws, so I would have to get in touch with an obscenity lawyer (Myles Jackman is the man for this). I live in the UK, which is why I was thinking that, but I also have German citizenship, so based on the greater freedom to make porn, and the whole Brexit thing (would I be able to hire EU models after Brexit? Don't know), I'm considering doing it in Germany.

    Roughly 15K pounds, and zero marketing experience. I'd like to say I'm a quick and sharp learner though, but I'm sure everybody thinks that of themselves.

    Just a thought, but you could hire the studio out to people who want to record their sex scenes, for free as long as you retain the permission to upload
    to the sites that pay you per porn video, and you could raise some capital via that method, while improving your video editing techniques,
    and building up your portfolio.

    At least you would have something to work with, if you planned on investing with someone,
    they would be confident that you had a viable business opportunity, and you would have the system setup.

    If you need someone black, let's act like I'm 18. On a serious note I remember seeing some guy go on tinder and fuck the girls and put it on pornhub; with their permission. Maybe you could start out with that and if someone wants to stay and still record with you than you've got your next Mia.

    Just thinking out "loud", don't have any experience marketing in your niche.

    There are "socks of the month" clubs out there, where you subscribe and get a pair of socks on the mail each month. If there are people with that kind of fetish out there, there are certainly 20 people would would pay $19.69 + shipping for "clip of the month" if it came on the mail on a usb stick along with "something" from the model (an autograph? a pic? a lipstick kiss on a napkin?). I'm sure you can think of a ton of kinky upsells regarding the places that usb stick has been etc.

    * While this won't make you rich, it can make your capital last for longer (and we all know how good that is, pun intended).

    * Getting 20 people is a matter of manual hustling.

    * People may not want to give out their addresses -> have them use a maildrop service (which they can sign up under your affiliate code)

    * Who would pay $20 for something that's everywhere for free? -> Who pays for every membership site in the same niche? You just need an angle for your club. I am not too familiar with the various angles there (pun intended) but I'm sure the depth and spread (again) of the niche is huge.

    I loved these puns. But that maildrop thing was smart not even joking. Getting paid twice! Honestly the people here are geniuses

    Excellent ideas. I think the autograph thing is particularly good, and really increases the potential price of the clips. £19.69 (love that) times 20 people could actually cover the fees of a lesser known model. In addition, I've noticed that most clips on Clips4sale are about 5 minutes long and cost like $5, and I'm aiming for 20-30 minutes videos, so that factors in as well. Upload a 6 minute video to pornhub and put a screen at the end that reads "go to.....for the full 25 MINUTE LONG video and sign up to get Jane Doe's panties!". I'm growing more and more confident that I can cover the costs for the early struggle.

    What's this "maildrop service" wizardry though? I don't think I've heard of it.

    Another thing I've decided is to take a short course on photography so I can take those glossy magazine-looking pictures myself and use them for banners and the sort when I set up a site properly.
