The big cash flow towards OnlyFans is just a siren song for the oncoming recession. Once the economy grabs coomers by the balls, nature will heal.

Only after years of having a reputation as the dirtiest girl in porn
yeah and it probably increased her viewer count by a decent bit. Mia Malkova also does game/cooking streams.

Amouranth/Belle Delphine started as gamers/streamers before doing OF


unsurprisingly there's a big overlap between sweaty gamer nerds and sweaty OF subscribers/porn "aficionados"

Exactly my point, I don't think Mia/Sasha would be a blip on the radar if they hadn't come from their porn background into gaming/cooking streaming as they'd just be another face among a sea of other women who were already in that market. However, people DID know they're names because they grew up pullin' their pud to their videos probably as early as they could remember, and now tune in to see them doing something that they can actually tell other people about (maybe, given they still have name recognition for dudes under forty).

Amaranthe/Belle seem to be the same thing just in the opposite direction, where they got in early being gamer girls who knew they were also attractive, and given the absolutely unfuckable portion of gamers - that meant there was money to be made off them as they'll never spend on an IRL GF - so they started dipping their toes into that market which I'm sure got them 1.5x the viewership/income due to those who were only in one sector that they were previously appealing to.

And how would you feel if your son was paying a girl on onlyfans to do cam stuff? And what if your son was just paying a monthly porn subscription? And what if your son was just looking at free porn online?
Depends on whether he’s watching cam girls or buying bottled farts.

The former, meh.

The latter, he probably needs a good ass kicking.

What if it made your son or daughter happier and wealthier than what they would otherwise be doing? Would you not want your child to make choices that make them happiest in life, just because certain other people are judgemental of it?
Hate to sound like the old guy I am, but being wealthier will not make you happier. Doing just about anything for a few bucks is the worst path you can follow. Been there, done that. Stepped back from director level, now just doing my job, spending more time with my family, having more time for my own projects, sports, nature, vacation.

"We work on jobs we hate, so we can buy shit we don't need to impress people we don't even like."

Oh I know. I wasn't meaning to imply excessive wealth or anything like that. Moreso just the ability to earn a better than average amount per hour, work less, have more freedom etc. Really exactly what you said about having more time.

I know a couple of women who do/did OF personally. I’m seeing some misconceptions here.

1. Those guys/gals/non-binary pals have to put in a shit load of work to promote themselves if they don’t already have a platform from something else, and then keeping with producing consistent content and doing custom requests for more cash is more than a full time job. Sure, the ability to pick and choose what request to take and how often to produce content decreases as the subscribers grow, but the numbers have to be insane to reach the point where it isn’t exhausting.
2. Money invested in it can get out of hand fast. In the face paced world we live in, these people have to produce content wearing different stuff or using different backdrops constantly, and the money isn’t always there.

This is all slightly unrelated, but until they have thousands of subscribers, they don’t make a full living on just OF or other sex work sites.

I support anyone using the absolute of their assets to make their lives more financially comfortable, but there is another issue: most people can’t handle the mental toll it actually takes. Even if you don’t care about others seeing intimate videos and photos of you, that is far from the whole deal. The commentary and interactions can be pretty horrible, and not at the basic retail abuse level. Kinks complicate the hell out of this. A lot of people will knowingly damage themselves mentally if the money is good enough.

^ Absolutely. It's definitely hard work! It's really very similar to success in any online entertainment industry these days - Such as the kind of social media presence musicians are required to maintain etc.
It can definitely be very advantageous on the mental side to have a partner etc. manage the interactions instead depending how much you can handle :lol:

I think there are two issues here: How we (any individual) feels about a choice a person makes, and how "society" feels about it. Like, if my daughter, wife, etc., wanted to do an Only Fans thing, I think it would depend a lot on what else she wanted to do in the future. Same thing with getting a face tattoo, or anything else that might not be judged as acceptable by people in certain industries. There's a fine line between doing what is expected of you, and not being yourself because of it. So, while I fully support anyone doing whatever they want (provided it doesn't hurt others) I DO worry that not everyone thinks that way. So if a 19 year old wanted to become an investment banker, and also wanted to get a face tattoo, I'd tell them that they really need to consider what their potential bosses would think when they applied for a job. I personally don't think it should matter what someone looks like, because having a face tattoo doesn't mean you can't be an awesome investment banker. But I'm not conservative about stuff like that. So when someone poses for OF, I have this immediate, gut reaction that is, "oof, this might not end well." But I don't even know if that's a "thing" anymore. Seems like people are super open about that kind of a thing now, and (as I said before) I was kind of surprised by that gut reaction of myself. Like, I caught myself being old and judgy, lol.

I'd say the single biggest issue with starting any business model based on social media is: you get kind of "famous" before it moves anywhere near a status you could describe as "wealth". That's literally the worst combination of famous & wealthy you could have. Many people know you, you get dissed for no obvious reasons, everyone wants to be your "friend" or wants to fuck you up and you live in a never ending parody of yourself at some point, because social media has no after-work hours. As a girl playing the hottie-card, you'll likely have a lot of annoying fans, many disgusting offers and even get stalked by some psycho here and there.

Psycho fans can strike anyone anywhere. The real tricky part is that a psycho fan can appear like normal fans until the moment they are causing a problem. Who would have forseen what happened to Dime , for instance?

Also, psycho fans are just as bad for any form of public personality as any other. For something like onlyfans, probably, the more defenseless you appear, the more likely you are to have success there, which would compound the issue. But, once again, Dimebag was a prime counterexample how it really doesn't matter what you look like...

Free porn? Yeah why not, that won't give him STDs or me surprise grandkids

Paid porn? Shit... I guess it would involve a very awkward conversation about finding free porn and saving money for something worthwhile... like trucks, toys, or real estate?

Yeah, you can be a weird super-famous hippie like Lennon or niche trailer trash like Dime (or maybe just some random dude at a bus stop), but if the universe decides to punch your clock, you're done.

Besides, we talk about psycho fans like they're only for famous people. But you can get stalkers in any profession where you interact with the public. Cashiers or baristas can get a psycho stalkers just as easy.
