This is me on OnlyFans. I don’t earn money. I don’t feel empowered. I just feel… despair

YOU set your own hours, work from home and can earn big money.

With such a job description, it’s no wonder OnlyFans are attracting users.

Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson claims to be earning £800,000 a month, adding that the job makes her feel “sane and glamorous”.

Critics say, however, that there is a glaringly non-humorous side to the sexually lascivious site that has become synonymous with pornographic images and videos.

There’s only one way to see what it’s really like – subscribing.

Did I earn 1 million pounds like Kerry Katona say she has?

It is statements like these that have taken the site from 7.5 million users in 2019 to more than 180 million today, with two million content creators.

OnlyFans has paid out around £4 billion in creator income since it started operating in 2016, but the average content creator is said to earn around £133 a month.

Setting up my Boring Housewife profile was surprisingly harder than I thought.

After a BBC investigation last year found that underage girls had bypassed the verification process, it appears the site has tightened its checks.

After many attempts to prove my ID and age, my account was finally verified.

The trouble is over, I think. . .

I took a few sexy pictures in my best green lingerie, uploaded them and waited for the fans, and the money, to start pouring in.

I set my profile to “free” because I was told that “nobody will pay a non-celebrity without seeing a tester first”.

This means that fans can view my content without paying and interact with me. I cringed when I uploaded the first picture.

As The Sun’s Sexpert, I’m not one to brag, but it’s weird to post a personal photo on the web in the hopes that strangers will like it.

In that moment, I didn’t feel empowered, a phrase many celebrities with biographies say – I felt hopeless.

I’ve been waiting for likes and comments to come in like them on Instagram when you post a beautiful photo – but was caught by the silence.

Minutes go by hours and still no DMs, no big offers of money, nothing. My pictures don’t even get likes.

Suddenly I felt proud. Negative thoughts started consuming me.

Maybe my photo isn’t sexy enough? Maybe I need to post something more special? Maybe, at the age of 35, I’ve crossed the hill?

I have refreshed my account to make sure there are no technical glitches but still no fans.

Confused, I texted people I knew by profile but they had similar stories.

I logged back into my profile on the third day and saw that the fans had started to drip.

I’ve got a huge number now, and it’s only because my friend with a huge Instagram following of them showed me the way.

I uploaded a snap of me wearing my pink underwear and captioned it: “Thanks for following, who likes my new bra?”

Once again I cringed when I hit post.

Minutes go by hours and still no DMs, no big offers of money, nothing. My pictures don’t even get likes.

My ego was a bit bruised but I was comforted by the news that Price Katie just dropped the price of her OF subscription from £11 a month to £5.50, weeks after launching her site. Looks like she’s also struggling to gain fans.

I have set up a profile on Reddit and joined the most followed and most popular of all OnlyFans advertising sites.

Thousands of women like me have asked how to get their profile noticed, get fans and make money.

Revenge porn, harassment, and stalking are real problems with OF, and if you find yourself in the final stretch, you’re who you are.

It’s nice that users have a community where they can confide and get helpful advice, but I had to be careful not to use my real name in case it attracted followers.

I found the whole process exhausting.

With a full-time job and a two-year-old, there aren’t enough hours in the day to try to build a fan base.

The mother of one child Myaa-May Thompson, 27, from Leicester, told me she made little money until she was lured into more and more obvious behaviors.

She added: “After doing it, I burst into tears. I feel dirty and it’s running downhill but I’m making up to £3k a month and love it.

“But I knew I had crossed the line and was terrified in case someone surreptitiously recorded it and it turned into revenge porn on another website. I’ve heard that happen to other girls. “

Looks like celebrities aren’t immune either.

At first, her OnlyFans announced that it would be “a place for me to share my world and adventures with my closest supporters in my own authentic voice.” Price Katie has since promised to be “naked”.

In response to claims that her post was too platonic, she stated: “This is a warm-up. Now get ready for me to level up! You know what that is. “

That’s not for me, which is probably why, after ten days, I’ve got eight fans and haven’t earned a dime.

My friend Emmerald Barwise, a glamor model and influencer from Manchester, told me: “What you have to remember is that your fans are watching thousands of girls constantly uploading content. get an x ​​rating and give them clear packages of decency.”

It’s true, one girl I follow constantly offers a pack of heavy porn which she claims is worth over £300 for only £18 if you pay her the subscription fee every month.

Prostitution is a legal job – and a hard one – that deserves respect.

After OF commission she will get £15 less.

While the messages are too graphic for The Sun, it’s sad that she’s selling this for so little.

I have no problem agreeing with adults who put out objectionable content for money.

Prostitution is a legal job – and a hard one – that deserves respect.

I fully support women – and men – doing what they want with their bodies.

But I do notice celebrities with millions of young, naive followers bewitching an industry that is largely unregulated and darker than what they want to do.

Revenge porn, harassment, and stalking are real problems with OF, and if you find yourself in the final stretch, you’re who you are.

No HR department or boss to complain about.

All OF will do is block the abuser – but that doesn’t stop them from spying on you.

Young women see celebrities flaunting their wealth of OF on social media and are seduced by its supposed glitz.

Celebrities make it look so easy – but it’s anything but.

I tried the website to investigate.

I could log out at any time and leave that gritty world behind. But not every woman has that luxury.

Of course, you can absolutely succeed on OF, but don’t expect it to happen overnight unless you find a new way to stand out. . . which will probably involve you selling your soul.

Last night, OnlyFans said it had taken reports of harassment “extremely seriously” and added: “Any attempt to portray OnlyFans as a ‘get-rich-quick scheme’ is futile. respect the effort and dedication of our creators.”

‘Celebrities on the website make me angry’

MYAA-MAY THOMPSON, 28, from Leicester, a mother of two, now only sells photos of her feet after being lured with money in the past.

“I also work for a living,” she said.

“It makes me angry to hear celebrities brag about making a lot of money, it’s star status that makes it so it’s not easy for ‘ordinary’ women and we learn get it the hard way.”

‘Hard to get fans and make money’

EMMERALD BARWISE, 31, a model and influencer, from Manchester, says: “It’s hard to get fans and make money.

“I have 50k followers on instagram and 50 fans on OF, I don’t use any more.

“I posted full nude videos before and sexy shower scenes and made £50 a month if I was lucky.

“I get odd requests that make me uncomfortable.”

‘I would make more money at McDonald’s’

MARIA ASHLEY, 24, from Swindon, says: “I want to make more money at McDonald’s.

“I think I just need to upload a few good photos and the money will fly in.

“But I spent up to five hours a day filming content and responding to fans.

“It was exhausting and I worked for free for months trying to entice the fans.

“I can’t afford to live on the £1k a month salary that I make.”
