HOLLYWOOD — Sydney Leathers is bringing her wit and intelligence to Penthouse as a featured monthly columnist embracing “The Working Girl Diaries.”
Her first article, “The Working Girl Diaries: How Much Do Porn Stars Actually Make,” talks about the realities vs fallacies surrounding the income of porn stars, with Leathers interviewing Charlotte Sartre, Kendra Lee Ryan, and Sofia Rose about their finances, and how they keep up with an ever-changing financial landscape.
Sartre, for example, makes sure she has a diverse stream of income from traditional porn work, clip stores, merchandise and more. She also talks about her expenses, including the testing requirements of both the industry and the legal brothel services, as well as making sure she saves money.
Ryan also finds income in a variety of ways, but struggles with being able to keep cash apps, such as Venmo and PayPal, due to her line of work, while Rose talks about the struggles of being in the business and worries about banks closing her accounts.
Leathers’ column provides an inside look and perspective about working in an industry that has seen a major shift from big contract stars to independent contractors.
“I’m very excited to be working with a brand as iconic as Penthouse,” Leathers says, “and look forward to writing fresh, new content on sex work, politics, and finance.”
