It wasn't because I wanted to just get naked or post pictures of myself," says Mark. He lost his job because of coronavirus in March and began posting semi-nude images on a subscriber-based social network. The year-old had been working for a five-star resort company, performing in shows. But when lockdown hit, his contract was cancelled. He later set up an OnlyFans on his friend's recommendation. It isn't just aimed at people who sell nude images, but many users do. Despite the "no full-frontal nudity" disclaimer in his bio, it started to pick up.
It's paid for food. It's paid for my car to keep running. It has literally paid for the necessities of living," says Mark. He says he received "abusive" messages from friends online when he first set up his . My isn't that at all. And while Mark refuses requests to post explicit photos or videos of sexual acts, he worries that other new users might feel forced to if they're short on cash.
It's just one step further and it means you're making money," he says. The year-old from Scotland lost her job as a craftworker apprentice and moved back in with her parents in April. Having experimented with selling nudes online in the past, "it became apparent that I would need to take it more seriously on losing my job," she says. She set up an OnlyFans and now schedules photo shoots of "soft-core" nudes for when her mum and dad are out of the house.
Rebecca enjoys that she has control over her hours and who she speaks to online. Lexi again, not her real name , from Greater Manchester, says that the amount of unpaid labour involved is also underestimated: taking photos, getting ready, social media promotion, responding to client requests. The year-old pole dance instructor and stripper set up her OnlyFans after her places of work were shut during lockdown. If you don't do the work, you don't get paid. She describes the emergence of these platforms into the mainstream as a "double-edged sword". The market is oversaturated. There are people who are using it to try and survive at the moment," she says.
She urges people to think about starting out in the industry carefully: "Set your boundaries before you make your content. Remember that it is out there forever. As well as the possibility of being harassed by customers, privacy is a concern for Mark, Rebecca and Lexi. It can be difficult to hide your identity online and content can be stolen.

An OnlyFans spokesperson said: "With a duty to help battle against illegal piracy, OnlyFans is firmly in the fight to protect user content.
The firm said it has a dedicated team that issues formal "takedown" notices against reported leaks and copyright violations. But it said ultimately, "every creator needs to consider the pros and cons". A Home Office spokesperson said that there were plans to "put a legal duty of care on online platforms, backed up by an independent regulator, to hold them to ", as outlined in the Online Harms White paper.
