    Money Shot

    The “Money Shot” is a slang expression that means the ejaculation of sperm.

    The expression comes from the porn industry where the “Money Shot ” is used to describe the fact that a male performer will allegedly only get paid if he makes it this far.

    In the mainstream film industry “Money Shot” is used to describe the most expensive footage in a film or the most difficult to attain – hence it is possible that this usage predates the porn one.

    Example usage:

    “I saved the money shot for the very end!”.
