Book 4, Chapter 7 Summary

Jenna describes a normal adult film contract. She acknowledges that it usually favors the production company and that many girls do not put their own demands in. However, she emphasizes that the contract is to protect both parties, not just the production company.

A normal contract defines the term of the contract, which is usually one year. The second part describes what the company will do for the actor/actress, what types of scenes will be expected, and how many within the contract year. Next, the contract states that the actor/actress will work solely for the production company during the contract year, which includes movies, promotions and any other type of entertainment. Should the actor/actress want to work elsewhere, he/she will need to have written permission from the production company.

The next section describes how the videos will be promoted and what is expected of the actor/actress. Compensation is then discussed. Normally, the actor or actress will receive a monthly salary as long as she appears in several scenes a month and will receive a percentage of video sales. The contract then explains what is expected of the actor/actress' physical appearance. The final section tells the actor/actress that they are expected to be law-abiding, and refrain from drugs and/or alcohol abuse and prostitution. The parties then have a place to sign. There is usually an additional schedule of additional compensation for certain sexual acts.

Therefore, this section is extremely helpful to newcomers to the industry.
