    Around 25-30 years a straight film called Deepthroat was made with two second rate performers, Harry Rheems and Linda Lovelace. It wasn't that good but became very well known by almost everyone. The performers were probably paid well under $200 each despite the millions it made. The noteriety of this flick kept it in adult theaters for a long time. One theater i am aware of in a tourist city showed it continuously for at least two years. Everyone almost everywhere heard about it and it was seen by many people who never watched porn but were curious about this film. I am sure the producer never dreamed it would make so much money and become so famous. I don't know if the performers got any extra bucks but probably didn't. This film was terrible and know one could have predicted its' success.

    Linda subsequently made a big thing about it being forced sex and that a gun was pointed at her to make her take part in the film.

    Many porn actors are "screwed". It's a similar situation to the political economy of prostitution or illegal recreational drugs.
