OK , we were treated to the photo of Farrah Abraham with a 120 thousand dollar check from Vivid this week, a royalty check any chick in porn would kill for…. What does it tell us though aboutthe biz. First of all ya can’t blame Hirsch for putting it out there it’s a nice sum, and it will entice other low level wanna be celebs to consider doing one but you also know that by Hollywood A-lister status its a mere pittance. Hell George Clooney wouldn’t sit on the edge of a bed in a Woody Allen movie for that amount…
Anyway figure things on the high side, figure she got a full million dollars up front as an advance against her royalties and then after two months she got another 120k, so lets round it down to 1.1 Million total. I’d say its fairly safe to say she got maybe 20% of the take. Knowing the biz I’d put the distributor pricing for the DVD at around 20 bucks, watching it online costs about 40 bucks.half of which goes to the affiliate and Vivid gets the other half so again each view is prolly worth around 20 bucks to Vivid, maybe a bit more since not all people come through affiliates. but using round numbers that are very close.
if she had 20% and netted 1.1 M in 3 months that means Vivid did 5.5M in sales, or sold about 275,000 units, most of those units were likely online views so lets say 25 percent of those were DVD sales so that’s about 68,750 DVDs worldwide. (I’d bet the Pamela Anderson tape did about 10 times that number)
OK if you look at the numbers here that doesn’t seem like that much really, certainly nowhere near Hollywood numbers even for a flop. BUT very profitable for Vivid. Look at it this way, If you took the the twenty best selling porn DVDs of 2013 combined it is highly doubtful they sold more than about half that 67,750 units…COMBINED.
So are these Celebrity Sex Tapes profitable? You bet they are! And as long as they are profitable you can bet that Steve Hirsch will keep cranking them out. Now if you think that Myla Sinnanaj is going to do the same numbers that Farrah Abraham did think again, Farrah was at least on an MTV reality show…At best Myla fucked someone who was married to Kim Kardashian for a minute, at best she was next to someone who was next to a semi celebrity once.
That’s a site you can watch Myla Sinanaj sex tape once released
