and then there are the not-so-popular ones who squander everything and end up working way past their prime to make ends meet.
a long time ago, a buddy knew a stripper and she said she makes like $200k/yr, but it's all cash. she wanted to buy a house but didn't want to claim the income on her taxes so it's all in a shoebox. if i knew her i'd say save up and get 2-3 condos cash... skip the bank loan.
it's like gravity: 2 homes (condos), enough to live. 3 homes (comdos), you're doing pretty well. rent closely follows the cost of living. just have to be tight.
Yeah, but say as a porn star making $200k per year (ever after taxes), you have what, maybe 10-15 prime years of working? I'm guessing you'd most likely have to start a fairly successful business to maintain that lifestyle. I'd assume most return to being average Joes after their porn career.
