Tesla, Apple and…electronic sex toys? How porn stars would invest $10,000

When it comes to the right place to invest your money, everyone has a suggestion. That’s true in the world of adult entertainment as well.

Last week, as the stars and superstars of the porn world walked the red carpet before the AVN Awards—the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars—CNBC decided to ask them how they’d invest if they had a little spare cash lying around.

The premise was pretty basic: Stars were given $10,000 in (fictional) money to sink in whatever asset or sector they’d like. Somewhat predictably, many took the opportunity to mention their own companies and websites. Several noted that $10,000 wasn’t a tremendous amount to invest. Still, everyone eventually figured out where they’d invest the cash.

Here are some of the more interesting answers.

Jesse Jane

“Apple. [The company] is always inventing new technology [and] everyone’s going to want it, so it will never go down.”

Ron Jeremy

“Real estate. I own a few condos and they all went up. See, there have been a lot of economic problems with real estate, but…you don’t get off the roller coaster in the middle of the ride…I didn’t. Everything has gone back again. I have a bunch of good condos. They make a lot of money. I think that, right now, is the best place to invest. Entertainment is the worst place to invest.”

Jessa Rhodes

“I’d probably put it towards animal rescue. I’m very passionate about tigers, so that’s my calling—eventually—is to have my own reservation.”

Anikka Albrite

“I’m a huge fan of biotechnology, so anything that seems like it’s good for the future and the health of other people.”

Jessica Drake

“I would probably put it into real estate. I’m trying to buy houses in areas other than California. I’ve had a house in Texas for a while.”

“Or I would put it into my [simplified employee pension] where my financial advisor makes all the decisions.”

Lexi Belle

“I’m really interested in owning a dog grooming business. I don’t think it would be enough to start up…but it would cover the cost of pretty little bows in their hair.”

Kelly Shibari

“Tesla, absolutely. It’s a great company. It’s green. They’re coming out with a more consumer friendly price point for the car. I think that’s a really, really good idea.”

Angela White

“Teledildonics [electronic sex toys]. I think the future of sex is being able to connect online but also virtually—being able to actually experience the sensation of what your partner is doing at the time” when you might be separated from one another, she said.

Tasha Reign

“If I had $10K to invest in a company…I think I would invest in Uber—because I use it for everything and all of the porn community is obsessed with it, and so is LA and NY. Or maybe my favorite restaurant Chipotle.”

Nikki Phoenix

“I would put it into a school to give them some sort of nutritional program to help people learn how to eat right, because I feel that’s a huge epidemic in this country.”
