My OnlyFans Experience

only fans income

Another OnlyFans article? By the same person? What a crazy idea, it’s almost like my life is work and then sexy work!

I’ve been an OnlyFans creator for about 6 months now, did I start due to the pandemic? No, I started because I made an impulse buy of lingerie that was way out of my budget and decided I’d make the lingerie pay for itself, which is incredibly on brand for me as a person.

When I started I had about 2 toys and a few sets of lingerie, and took your standard nude selfies that you’d send to your tinder matches or your boyfriend; let me tell you how I’ve stepped up my game to keep my fans coming back 😉

Tech:

One of the first things I bought for my photos was a ringlight, it’s only small and I will be upgrading in the new year. Believe it or not LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING, this will change your photos in ways you won’t believe. Having a ringlight means you can choose where the light is coming from and how it will hit you, meaning you can choose exactly how your body looks on camera.
I also bought LED strip lights, being able to change the background colour of my shots is so fun and different, it can give the same outfit a tonne of different vibes with the click of a button. It also removes the need to have a ceiling light on, which removes having light shining directly down on you which isn’t flattering on anyone. They’re also super cheap which is awesome considering how much money you’ll make off them.

You need to get good at adding photos, removing shadows from where you don’t want them, fixing the lighting, removing blemishes if you want to (I find that my audience likes the more natural vibe because it makes it feel more realistic, but that’s just my boys).

Interactions:

Not everyone realises this when they start but you do need to be in touch with your subscribers, they’re not there just for the porn and the photos, as men always say “you can get that for free”. These fans usually love feeling connected to you so you need to be interacting with them, responding to your DM’s, doing deals for your top paying subs, gifts every now and again. Just keep in touch with them, make sure they feel special, after all they are paying for your content and bills.

Keep your personality:

My content isn’t always super serious and sexy, sometimes it’s me dancing around, having a laugh, just looking cute.
I once made $150 by telling people to tip me if they thought I was “smexilicious”, I posted it as a joke and they came through, maybe because they love to pay me, more than likely because I’m having fun with my content.
Occasionally I post photos of me with my car because I like my car, I love feeling like someone from The Fast & The Furious.
It’s just important to keep your content you, it’s what sets you apart from everyone else!

Outfits:

My outfits are usually mostly black, I used the same lingerie over and over again, but now I have that many I can rotate through them and no one realises I’ve worn them before. My go to is usually bodysuits because they flatter my body nicely and they’re easy to switch out of because I take a month’s worth of content in one night most times.
Recently, however, I have started leaning into lighter coloured two pieces, I have braces and glasses so leaning into the teen category really does boost my numbers sometimes, and it’s just a nice change from constantly being all black everything!

Conversations:

If you can’t hold a conversation there’s really no point, these guys want a connection as stated above. Being able to check in and tell them how your day’s been, ask them how there’s has been, talk about stuff like you know them is going to get you so far.
If these guys are sending you DM’s and getting one word responses or left on read constantly they really aren’t going to be happy, afterall they are paying a certain amount every month to be a part of this and it’s not all about the content.

 

I think the most important thing I’ve learnt so far is to keep doing new things, keep switching it up so that everyone’s having fun (including me!!), it’s work and it can be tiring sometimes; but as long as you’re enjoying it and keeping them happy it will be one of the easier jobs you can do.
I always have an extra bit of income (how much extra I have that week is dependant on how hard I hustle), and have an excuse to be hot and have a good old fashioned orgasm. 😉

The 6 Types of Customers in an Adult Store

toy sex shop

Working at Oh Zone adult stores for a few months now I feel like I’ve met every kind of customer possible, all the different reactions you could get to the kind of products we sell. So I thought why not compile a little list of the 6 different categories I’ve discovered so far, you can read along and check yourself, your friends, or your partner(s) off as you go, I know which I am!

 

Young Kids in for a Laugh

We get it, sex it funny when you’re young, when the craziest thing you’ve done is finger Jess in a park, sex toys seem out of this world hilarious. But honestly this is the easiest way to have your local adult store worker roll their eyes when they see you next time. A little giggle here and there is fine, but we need to be cautious and remember that other people do shop here and while you guys may think it’s this weird thing, another person may be into it and your laughs genuinely could be hurtful. Sex shops are fun but remember we’re in adult stores because we’re adults everybody.

Shy Couples

Honestly I love shy couples, you can try to chat and help as much as you like, but they get nervous or embarrassed and it’s quite sweet to watch. The things you’re looking at buying in these stores are very intimate and not everyone is comfortable enough to have that conversation with a stranger. I usually try to joke around in this case to break the ice but if that fails I leave them to it, either they’ll figure it out themselves or finally break and ask a few questions and either is fine by me. My favourite thing is the breakthrough moment, you won’t always get it but if you tread carefully but bond with them JUST enough they’ll open up and have these amazing conversations with you… And I just love that moment, it’s special.

The Open Partner With a Shy Partner

Probably the funniest combo I’ll ever see (THIS GOES FOR FRIENDS TOO). When one person is too shy to say a word, while going red as a tomato and the other just goes straight into it without a second thought. You can always tell the shy one would rather be anywhere else but here, but the outgoing one will tell you the ins and outs of what they like, what they don’t like, what they’re looking for, what they’ve already tried, all while the shy one stands there absolutely mortified! It’s almost as if they’ll go into far more detail than necessary just to really get under the shy one’s skin. It’s a fun dynamic and a really common to be honest. (Two out going partners/friends are HILARIOUS most of the time and very down for a joke, but there’s something about the comical amount of embarrassment that make this pairing one of my favourites.)

The Vanillas

My sweet cherubs, I really do love them, bless their cotton socks. It’s amazing to watch their eyes widen each turn they make into the store, each new product a total mystery to them. They’re sweet because they’ll usually ask the most questions out of everyone because most things in the store are a whole new world to them, no idea that there were so many kinds of sex toys with so many functions that go SO MANY PLACES.

This is where we usually take a lap and give a brief tour while getting to know the customers, “what do you like”, “what would you like to try”, “what did we come in here looking for” all the things that will help us crack down on the best options for the newbies.

The “Not Here To Mess Around”

These people come barrelling through the door, they have a list, they know names, styles, colours, everything you could think of. There’s no time to chat, no time for questions they came here for their particular thing/s and they need it now! These guys are the easiest people to deal with… Mostly because they’re in and then bam they’re gone, you’ve barely got time to put all their items through before they’re leaving again. They know what they’re after and I respect them for that/

The Regulars

My all time favourites, my regulars! These are the people I see once a week, once every two weeks, maybe more! I know the ins and outs of they’re sex lives, we keep updated on each others lives, they bring in their other friends, partners, aunts etc, we’re basically friends at this point… Friends that only catch up in the local sex shop haha.

Being regulars you can usually ask “how was the xyz” you bought last time, “how’s the fight going that you had with your boyfriend/girlfriend”, “how was the toy you got as a surprise for your anniversary?” and it’s fun getting the little updates and reviews, especially when they’re good because it’s just nice to know that you’re helping them to some degree!

 

Nude Taking For The Self Conscious

Nude Pics

Not always being able to love your body is a hard thing to go through, sometimes seeing photos and having to take a minute to think “is that really what I look like?” before being sad for however long it lasts, not understanding how people look at you and think you’re not hideous. It can really take a toll on your mental health, your self worth, even your social life if it’s really consuming.

Taking nudes and feeling sexy with this kind of mindset can be a really tiring and depressing experience, if the attempts don’t work the way you want it can throw you into an even deeper pit… This is where I’m coming into help, running an OnlyFans has actually helped me to see how sexy and desired my body is, even when I think it’s undeserving of such attention (and I’m quite good at hiding my flaws now, or embracing them, depends on the day!).

 

Know Your Angles

What works for my body won’t work for yours, the same way what works for most insta models won’t work for me. You need to know what flatters your shape, whether that’s squatting down and taking photos of your butt to bring out those curves, or contorting in a way only you can to have that waist absolutely snatched.

My angle is anything whether I’m twisting and turning to show a more defined waist and butt, but some days even that doesn’t work and I need to go back to the drawing bored.

 

Don’t be afraid of your flaws

I remember thinking I needed to have every roll, stretch mark and wrinkle covered when I was younger… WRONG. Your flaws make you sexy, they make you YOU. Believe it or not people really do love all those kinds of “imperfections” it’s such a natural thing to happen to the body and no one is as out of love with them as you are. Chances are whoever is looking won’t even notice, and if they do they will love them.

 

But if you are, hide them!

You don’t need to be in love with those things to still take good nudes. Personally I still have days where I hate my stomach (almost everyday, but I’m working on it lol), but that’s nothing a strategically placed hand/blanket/scarf/ribbon/rope can’t fix.

Draping over your body between your hips and ribs will cover any roundness, rolls, or (in my case) flab that you don’t want seen while still showing a gorgeous silhouette of your figure, rotating your hips jus slightly while standing will create amazing lines through your posing, uncomfortable with your stomach? Take photos from behind, no one needs to know!

Whatever works for you and makes YOU feel best, because while you might be taking these photos for other people it is about how you feel about them first and foremost, you need to feel sexy for that to come through in the shot.

 

If all else fails, dim the lights.

I recently bought strip LEDs and let me tell you, nothing hides flaws better than red lighting on a low setting, you can’t see a single issue, these are a god send.

I usually flip between all the colours just to keep it fresh, but if you find a colour that works for you stick to it, no one’s gonna care that your nudes are all blue/green/red, they’re just going to be excited that you’re nakey on their screens.

 

Get some new outfits and accessories

Buy some new lingerie, get some new toys.

I recently bought the Honey Bunny set from the Play by Fantasy Lingerie line (which comes complete with bunny ears, a tail, cuffs, and a collar with a bowtie, which is ADORABLE), this added to red lights is a stunning combination, swap out the collar that came with the outfit for a Scandal Collar with Leash or The Scandal Wide Tip Crop and you have a range of fun things you can do.

Whatever makes you feel sexy, pull out all the stops, you don’t even have to show full nudity for the pictures to be stunning.

 

Don’t be too hard on yourself

I know I can be the toughest critic for my own photos and in the moment will beat myself to a pulp with criticism, but try to avoid it. Try a few different poses, don’t check the photos in between, just go as many as you can, be positive, feel sexy. If you check them after and don’t like them, do not dwell on it, do not delete them. Give it 5 or 10 minutes, try again, take some more.

If you don’t like them still leave them for a while, sometimes it takes calming down and being out of the moment to really appreciate what you’ve taken, I know if I leave them for an hour and come back I can usually find a few that I like. Probably because the expectation of looking like a bloody model is gone, so I can see myself through regular eyes and actually take in me for me.

 

End on a high note

As long as you have one photo you’re really happy with, you’ve succeeded, sometimes I stop a shoot when I’ve only got one good photo, but it’s strategic.

I know that if I keep going and none of the other photos turn out well I’ll end up finding a reason to hate that one too, making all that work go to waste, sometimes you decide to quit while you’re ahead and that’s completely fine! If you know you’re having a day where you can’t handle too many bad photos, stop the second you find a good one, however, if you really like that photo and think you can snap a couple more similar and be happy with them keep going.

 

Learning to love your body for all of it’s features is a hard journey, it can be draining, tiring, and down right heart breaking some days, but we can get there in the end… Even if it’s just 5 out of 7 days (or 3 out of 300 photos) it’s better than 0 and it gets easier over time. Remember that you are a magnificent creation to be loved and adored, by others, but most importantly by yourself.

 

Now get out there and take some nakey photos.
