OnlyFans Star Reveals The Amazing Money She Earns And The Most Crazy Fan Requests She Receive
On 16th October 2021
Emilie Rae, the adult content creator who started her adult career back in 2018 opens up on her journey as a content creator. She also discusses the handsome money she earns on monthly basis and dives into details of some cringe and bizarre requests she gets from her subscribers.
OnlyFans platform boomed like crazy during the pandemic times and many people literally made a fortune out of it.
Only a few weeks after its launch in 2016, the OnlyFans welcomed its first 1000 subscribers and a year later it hit its one million subscribers milestone.
Now in 2021, OnlyFans is a global platform that is raking in millions of dollars on yearly basis.
The year 2020 proved to be a crucial time for OnlyFans, as the pandemic lockdown hit the world, artists and sex workers turned to this online platform to create content.
The platform became a hit even among celebrities and the likes of Beyonce contributed to its popularity after she came out of isolation to jump on Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Savage’ remix, where she gave a surprise shout-out to the platform.
“Hips TikTok when I dance / On that Demon Time, she might start an OnlyFans”, she rapped, which prompted a “15 percent spike in traffic” in “less than 24 hours”, according to an OnlyFans spokesperson.
Talking to Indy100, 27-year old Emilie Rae who started her OnlyFans career back in 2018 revealed that it took her only a few hours to sign up on the platform as all she was required to do was set up a new email address and submit a few ID documents before being able to upload to the site.
And only in few hours, Emilie had earned a whopping £2,000 from the existing photographs she had on her camera roll.
Before taking the leap of faith, the posh content creator was stuck in full-time office job of 9-5. However, only eight months later, she subsequently quit her nine to five and was earning a substantial amount more.
“In my last job, I was earning £1,200 a month. I earn double that a week now – sometimes more depending on how much effort I put in”, she revealed.
“I would never have been able to buy my first house, become debt-free and experience the things I have if it wasn’t for sex work.”
Ever since quitting her office job, Emilie has switched to self-managed photoshoots in her house or at a hotel. She now starts her day by planning outfits, arranging props and lighting, and managing specific requests. On average, she shoots around 150 photographs in a three-hour time frame and is “constantly thinking of new, exciting ideas” so her mind can come up with new exciting ideas.
The adult content creator revealed that she does receive some bizarre and niche requests.
For example one of her subscribers asked her to send a picture of her with a plaster on her nose to fulfill the 'damsel in distress' kink.
“He buys fake casts and neck braces for me which I then wear”, she said. “He likes receiving photos of me doing ‘everyday’ things in them: looking injured and helpless, ready for him to rescue me. It could be anything – plaster on my nose, for example!”
Like others, breaking the news to her friends and family about her new career was a daunting task for Emilie.
She reveals that she joined the adult site on encouragement from her ex-boyfriend who told her how much money content creators were making from this platform. But she continued to hide the truth from her family for around six months until her brother came to know about her little secret.
“My brother found out I was making lots of extra money and I paid him to keep him quiet”, she joked. “He eventually told my parents and, surprisingly, they just shrugged their shoulders and were entirely supportive. I’m one of the lucky ones – some people don’t get that response from their family and friends.”
Earning from the adult content site may appear simple and easy but it is not that simple. Emilie explained that “you really need to have your head screwed on” in terms of the finance side of things.
For now, Emilie is managing her own finances through a spreadsheet to record all her payments, which she fills out every few months for tax purposes.
On top of that, “OnlyFans takes 20 per cent of your earnings, which really eats into your hard-earned profits.”
Talking about the porn content ban, Emilie says it “completely rocked creators”, which led them to feel “abandoned.”
“OnlyFans have been consistently disappointing in the running of their site, with their customer service being atrocious and their team dropping not-so-wonderful bombshells that inevitably destroy lives.
“The sex worker community devotes so much time and energy into creating brands for themselves and they don’t even acknowledge that we exist.
“It’s disheartening, to say the very least.
“They may have ‘suspended’ their new terms, but they will implement them soon. I just hope the girls who are lining their pockets have been smart enough to branch out onto one of the better sites out there like AdmireMe.VIP.”
Despite her difficult relationship with the adult site, Emilie says she feels much more open-minded, creative and entrepreneurial since joining. “You do your own admin, you’re a councillor in many ways, your own personal photographer, director, creative writer, digital marketer and you’re essentially an actor/actress”, she said.
And while it can be time-consuming and emotionally draining, “if you put the time into it and become successful it can completely transform your world.”
