Fans of adult films know who Jenna Jameson is and why she became so popular. But, before we delve deeper into her rich career, let’s take a look at her time of birth. Jenna Jameson was born in 1974 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Due to her mother’s illness, Jenna had a very rough childhood. During her teenage years, she started to become interested in ballet, thus she started taking lessons. A huge impact on her childhood made several sexual assaults, which only made her childhood worse. All of this caused her to leave her home and start living with her boyfriend at the age of 16.
Only a year later, Jenna became interested in pursuing a career as an exotic dancer. Since she lived in Las Vegas, it was easy for her to start pursuing such a career, and after some time, she started earning around $2000 per night. Jenna’s net worth started to increase since then, given that she also started modeling for adult magazines. In 1993, she recorded her first softcore erotic movie, as well as her first porn movie called „Up and Cummers 11“ in 1994. After signing a contract with ’Wicked Pictures’, Jenna started earning $6000 per movie and soon after that, her first big production called ’Blue Movie’ saw a major interest worldwide, thus earning numerous AVN awards.
Not long after that, Jenna Jameson got her first taste of popularity by becoming one of the most wanted pornstars and winning the almighty ’Fans of X-Rated Entertainment (F.O.X.E.) Video Vixen’ award. Because of this, Jenna’s net worth started increasing exponentially, with her earning up to $60000 per filming, as well as $8000 per night by dancing at strip clubs.

The first film made by her company is called ’Briana Loves Jenna’ and in 2002, this was the best-selling title. The word of success quickly spreads and Playboy Enterprises offered to purchase the corporation. Jenna accepted and quickly, this new-formed corporation had a revenue of more than $30 million.
