Megan Barton Hanson, Love Island star turned X-rated OnlyFans model is shutting off the critics as she rakes in massive money on the content subscription platform.
Megan Barton Hanson, 26, spoke with The Sun about her OnlyFans career and said her activity on the platform is personally empowering for her.
“OnlyFans is a paid content site which has changed the power dynamic for glamour models and sex workers, with the power now firmly being in the hands of the content creator,” she said, noting that models can now directly profit from images that would otherwise be posted for free on other platforms like Instagram.
“If you open Instagram, you see the world’s most followed celebrity models posting revealing and sexy images to the free platform.”
“Through lockdown, while many people lost their jobs, OnlyFans content creators have been able to shoot from home and maintain a taxable income which can support themselves and their families.”
“So why does requesting money for this type of image change it from sexy to slutty?” she asked.
“Men lust after sex symbols, but as soon as women start wanting to profit from their sexuality, people become confused and annoyed,” Megan Barton Hanson said of model work on OnlyFans.
Megan also talked about how women need more 'freedom of choice' when it comes to working on the site related to sex work.
“I receive similar judgement from women too — those who feel it doesn’t uphold feminist values. To me, supporting women even if you disagree with what they are doing is feminism — we need to allow women to have freedom of choice.”
“The only issue with sex work is when it is not willingly entered into by the worker,” Megan Barton Hanson said of her OnlyFans career.
“But when someone is happy and has an income that can allow them to provide for their families and be able to contribute to society by paying their taxes, I can’t see any issue with that,” she continued.
As per Yahoo! News, the reality TV star is making millions from the platform.
According to Hanson, she’s making roughly $1.4 million, or £800,000, a month by selling sexy pictures and videos.
“I can’t believe how well I’ve done, I’m smashing it,” she added.
“Doing the site has definitely helped me buy my dream house and it’s given me all the money for new furniture,” the 26-year-old Megan Barton Hanson said of her OnlyFans.
As per The Mirror, Megan also talked about the amount of abuse and harassment she has received for working on the site.
“The abuse I’ve had recently for opening up my Only Fans account again has surprised me, even though the very first thing I said when I walked into the villa was ‘yeah, I’ve worked in the sex industry but I’m not ashamed of it, so don’t try and shame me for it because it is a part of me.'”
“I’ve had so many people put me down, which is sad considering I’ve spoken so much about women’s empowerment and letting women do what they want with their bodies.”
