No matter how you do the math, $500-$1,000 doesn’t come to a whole lot of money.

My troubles began the day I chose the darkness—the day I chose Jack.

Porn Star Agents: Inside Their Risky Business | Hollywood Reporter
On a late-summer afternoon in a dingy San Fernando Valley apartment, talent agent Mark Spiegler is having it out with a producer. Pacing the length of the living elbow room that for the past nine years has doubled as his office, Spiegler, portly with thinning chromatic hair and a graying 5 o'clock shadow, sets out his demands: If his client, a top actress, is going to agree to a project, confident accommodations must be made.
