Vivid has sent Kendra Wilkinson a $680,000 paycheck for her yet to be released sex tape. Kendra will also receive up to 50% of the sales. Vivid reports that the sex tape has already outsold all of their other celebrity sex tapes including Kim Kardashian.
Reportedly, Kendraâ€™s ex, Justin Frye, is the one who made the deal with Vivid. He only made $100,000 for the tapes, and he may be receiving a percentage of the sales. However, Kendra actually signed on to the deal in secret. I wonder what her husband Hank Baskett things of the money. There are rumors of a Kendra and Hank split. However, that has not yet been confirmed.
The soon to be released Kendra sex tape has over 10 hours of footage. Vivid has made the entire footage into several tapes the first of which will be â€˜Kendra Exposedâ€™ which will be released by Vivid this week.
Frye and his new wife plan to use the money they made from the Kendra sex tapes to buy their first home in Arizona.
One of the videos features Kendra with a woman named Taryn. Other feature Kendra with different men as well as Kendra with Frye. The tapes are high quality despite the â€˜amateurâ€™ nature of them.
I suppose that one of the things people have not given up during the recession is porn. It appears as if the adult film industry is still going strong despite the economic downturn. $680,000 is a LOT of money for something that hasnâ€™t even been released yet.
Apparently 35% of all internet downloads are pornographic, so itâ€™s obviously a large market throughout the world. People in the US alone spend about $13.6 billion each year on pornography, which accounts for about 14% of worldwide sales. Also, some of the biggest names in business are involved in selling porn including GM, Time Warner and Marriott. Ironically, Utah spends the most money each year on porn.
However, is porn a good job for women? It depends on how you view it. They are certainly well paid. Many female porn stars earn between $100,000 and $250,000 annually, which is high pay for the type of education required.
Anyway, with Vivid releasing â€˜Kendra Exposedâ€™ it is one of the 20,000 adult films that will be released in 2010. Obviously the pornography business is alive and thriving even in our slow times.
