The Porn Producer on Your Block
CNBC.com | January 19, 2012 | 03:20 PM EST

Porn companies have always been interested in the girl next door, but now there’s a company that’s taking an interest in her parents.

Pleasure Dynasty is trying something new in the industry: opening the filmmaking process up to outside investors and letting them add the title of adult film producer to their resume (though don't expect too many people to brag about it).

Most adult entertainment companies are firmly closed to "civilians," the industry’s term for outsiders. But Carlos Cavero, owner of Pleasure Dynasty, says his clients range from club owners to risk managers on Wall Street.

"People want to be in the circle," he says. "They want to feel they’re doing something that's a viable business where they’re going to make money — and they want to work with pros. They're businessmen at the end of the day, but they want to have fun."

Those clients, not surprisingly, tend to prefer anonymity. While it might be a money-making opportunity , porn still carries a stigma in many circles, and people don't want to risk their reputation. But investors who have fronted money say they believe the industry is safer than many other investment vehicles.
