Is OF Worth It: Consumer Edition

fansonly

Alright I know I talk about OnlyFans a lot, it’s what I do though, so my life is a whole lot of OnlyFans and Onlyfans related thoughts, I do not have enough braincells to think about more things… So, you get more OnlyFans blogs.

So, this one’s a little different, it’s not for my people thinking of being content creators, this is the people who are on the fence about subscribing to OnlyFans, wondering if it’s worth the money and my favourite sentence “why would I pay when I can get it on Pornhub for free?”. Which is a completely fair argument, but I have a great argument for the opposition, so let’s go.

 

Of course, we’re going to go through the obvious part first, which is interactions with your creators:
OnlyFans: This is the jobs of these people, they need to keep on their hustle and keep your attention, they will respond, they’ll be interested in your day, in your feedback, interested in your requests and open to trying new things for you. They really want you to be happy and content with what you’re getting from them. We really do care about making sure that your however much per month is getting you premium stuff that you’re happy with!
Big Corporation Porn: These people also have a job, but it is to create the porn, they get paid whether they respond to your comments or not, occasionally they will but it’s never sincere or personalised.

 

Customisation is a huge part of why people love OnlyFans as much as they do and why it has absolutely blown up, there’s nothing better than getting exactly what you want out of your porn.
OnlyFans: all you have to do is message us, tell us what you’re into and what you’d love to see, anything you can’t find on the internet you’re almost certain to find an OnlyFans creator who will be more than happy to create the scene or scenario for. Occasionally this does come at an extra fee, but personally if my subs are long standing and loyal it’s usually pretty cheap or free. It’s a small price to pay to get content that is custom tailored to your needs!
Big Coporation Porn: I mean, you can try your best, but it always takes a lot of searching and deep diving through porn sites to try find exactly what I’m after, and if you’ve only got a limited time to beat your shmeat that’s not always a super viable option, so sometimes you just go with the first video you see.

 

Now one of the most important points to make in my opinionis that when you pay for OnlyFans you know that you are watching content that’s fully consented to.
OnlyFans: Has an incredibly strict sign up process, you need multiple forms of ID, photos of you, photos of you with your ID, it’s insane and I’m thankful, it guarantees that your creators are of legal age and consenting to the process. These creators are doing it because they want to, because they’ve chosen to do it as a side hustle or job. Once the creator no longer wants certain posts or even their whole account taken down, they can do that, there’s no arguing, there’s no lawsuits, it’s just removed at your will.
Big Corporation Porn: There are prime examples with a simple google search of how loose these sites are with uploading content, there have been minors, videos of assaults, people not being able to have their content down, people tied into contracts, people manipulated into filming. It’s crazy to me that about anything can end up on the sight so easily, but it can take years to have it taken down, and even not at all. There are people that have been fighting certain sites for years over having videos of their assaults taken down and they can’t. Not knowing who has consented, who was manipulated, and if what you’re watching is even legal is a big deterrent for me in using large porn sites, so if a $10 a month fee can take out that guessing game, I am more than happy to do that.

 

Overall, it, to me, from a consumer standpoint, is a far more ethical and healthy way of consuming porn. It’s awesome to know that you’re supporting sex workers and getting content from people who love what they do, and that if they choose not to do it one day they won’t have to argue their way out of it. There are even some creators who have free pages and only charge for the totally X-Rated videos and pictures that they post, which is a good option for those who cannot fathom spending $10+ per month, you’re still getting some content without having to lock into paying money every month.

 

So, is OnlyFans worth it as a consumer? Absolutely! It’s the best way to get porn you love and that the porn stars love creating!

Becoming an OnlyFans Creator

fans online

If you had of asked me two years ago if I’d be running an account where people pay $10 a month to see my body I would’ve laughed you into the next week. It’s not something I intended to go into being the young insecure and anxious girl that I was. But at this point I don’t think I’d be as empowered and confident as I am without it.

I started it after making a dumb decision to spend big money on lingerie and realising I needed to recoup some of the costs somehow… Well using the lingerie to make it back seemed as good a plan as any other. So I got to work and set up my onlyfans account, I had friends interested and word of mouth did a lot for my first month.

The good:

What I love most is the interaction between me and my fans, they’re the best hype team you could ask for, any ideas I put forward they’re always so fast to say “Hell yes!”, “I can’t wait to see what you do with this!” or my favourite recent “You’ve made my month with this!!”. It’s cool to have that little cheer squad even if you don’t love the content they usually will.   They’re also happy to just banter with you on your off days, I love it when my fans just pop in for a chat and ask how my days going or when they interact with my posts that are just a bit of fun for me.

Obviously the extra money does feel good to have whenever you decided to pull from your funds, the USD exchange rate just sweetens the deal that bit more. I really did not think I’d be making much money when I first started, I thought there was no possible way that people would pay money to see me but I was shocked when I made back the $700 lingerie purchase and then some within 2 weeks. It’s crazy to think, as someone who grew up with technology, that I had been doing this for free for the men out there this whole time when I could’ve been turning a pretty profit!

Being able to buy toys for yourself with no guilt because you know you’ll not only be able to use them for your own pleasure but you’ll definitely make the money back buy showing your fans the fun you have with the toys is amazing! I spent over $1k with no worries because I knew I could market all items towards each of my fans.

My favourite buys:

We-vibe Ditto: this vibrating plug isn’t just good for my enjoyment but being able to give my fans the control over the toy gives them extra incentive to spend big as they really are a part of the content I make tailored to them, as much as they want to see me having a good time they want to feel involved and have this whole thing personalised to them, which is why they choose to pay rather than just get free porn on the internet.

We-vibe Jive: this toy gives the same feeling of being involved as they can control this and really decide how the video goes!

Lingerie: there is nothing better than just a plain old sexy photo sometimes, as much as full nudity is amazing sometimes leaving a bit to the imagination for the boys really is what tips them over the edge into tipping to see you take it off.

Bondage equipment: the scandal line has some really solid pieces that are absolutely stunning to look at, their Breathable Ball Gag with Cuffs has this intricate red design on the outside with luxurious feeling soft material on the inside. They are also completely adjustable in all ways!

Maia Dongs: these suction based dildos are awesome for looking and feeling like the real thing (given that you don’t buy a bright purple one haha!), the ability to suction them anywhere and everywhere really does give you so many options on how to use them and how to market the content to your fans.

The bad:

I’d be lying if I said there were absolutely no downsides to working in this type of environment, it’s a great side hustle but can be downright exhausting.

There are days where I just don’t feel like my body is something to be posted or lusted over, I just don’t look in the mirror (or camera lens) and like what I see. But regardless of that you have fans that have paid to see you post, getting out of that funk and being able to still deliver can be extremely hard.

Not wanting to let people down on those days/weeks/months that your not feeling it is such a pressure to add on while you’re already feeling off and it does suck. At the end of the day you decide whether you feel like posting or not and fans will decide if it’s worth sticking it out to see you come back and start posting regularly like they love, it’s just part of the game.

Having to get over the idea of people you know finding you. As                 I said a lot of my original fanbase was people that I knew and that did make me nervous as some of these people had never seen me in that light before, but at the end of the day they wanted to pay and I wanted to make money, so I just put it to the back of my mind and saw them purely as customers and nothing more.

Dating, this is still super hard to get through. The amount of people who you will get along with as a person and enjoy the company of, that will completely abandon all romantic interest as soon as they find out you’re an online sex worker is crazy to me, but I totally understand because everyone has their own boundaries whether you agree with them or not. This is why I’m always very upfront and tend to bring it up quite early, just to give them the option of continuing things or not on their terms.

Tips:

If you’re considering going down this path think about if you can handle the bad, the possibility of content being leaked, of family or friends finding out, anything you could think of that could go wrong, because it may. I personally was never that fussed, if people find out and don’t accept how I make my money then that’s on them. But no everyone is like that, and you need to decide if you’re ready for that fall out.

Find your niche! With so many creators on OnlyFans now you really need to think of how you’re going to stand out, why should someone subscribe to you and not the next person? What makes you worth their $10+ per month? Would YOU subscribe to yourself?

Interact with your fans, that’s the main reason they’re on your account and not PornHub or some other site, they get to feel like they know you and have a connection. Help them with that fantasy!

Just be you, if you’re a giant goofball it’s so much easier to have fun with your content and enjoy making it if you’re allowing your personality to show through.   You’ll have the time of your life making your content and getting to know your subs, it can be such a fun job if you make it work for you!

Ask Oz – Isolate or Dominate!!

oz ask

Hi Oz, I really hope you can help me. I’ve got a very problematic immune system, so as soon as Covid-19 went around, I’ve been forced into total social isolation. Thankfully I could continue working from home on my computer, but there are some things I just can’t do while in isolation.
Because no matter how good my vibrator collection is, no sex toy is ever going to choke me out, tell me what to do, or tie me down. Which is exactly the kind of thing I need to truly get off. What can I do? Please help! – Angela

 

Hi Angela, thanks for your email. I think I might be able to suggest a few things to get you through this time.

First up, the same goes for distance dom/sub relationships/encounters as it does for in-person ones: only do it with someone you trust. Lay out boundaries and safe words. Establish an open communication before the event, get familiar with each other, and certainly try a few video chats together before you get together for a long distance session. Most of the next things I’m about to suggest require the use of app-based control technology, and I would recommend trying these things before that initial playdate, to iron out any kinks (no pun intended).

Next up, it’s time to get some products that could be really useful to be dominated from anywhere in the world. Pick up a set of under-mattress restraints. Edge Extreme Under The Bed Restraints is a great kit that can be extended to fit even under a king sized bed, and comes with six metal loops to attach your favourite sets of binds to. Pornhub’s 8 Point Underbed Kit comes with its own set of cuffs for ankles and wrists, and given the anchor points for these may be even sturdier than the Edge ones.

To go along with your under bed restraints, look at finding some app controllable padlocks, like those offered by Noke. Again, definitely practise ahead of time with these, let your dom lock and unlock them when you’re not wearing them. These are probably the most important thing to make sure they work before using.

For toys, I’d recommend most things offered by Kiiroo. The Pearl 2 and the Fuse are two great classic style vibrators (the Pearl 2 is a g-spot toy, the Fuse is a rabbit style for dual stimulation). Both of these can be controlled remotely through an app, where you connect to the toy via bluetooth and then connect with your partner through the Kiiroo app. But what makes the Kiiroo toys really stand out from other app-controlled toys, is the interactivity on offer.

If playing solo, for example, you can load up interactive content from somewhere like Pornhub and the toy will respond to what is taking place on the screen. Pair this with some VR goggles, and you’re having the closest thing to sexual interaction as one can in a time of social isolation.

However if your partner (in this instance, I’m using a man as an example) has a Kiiroo Onyx 2, he can interact with your toy completely. The Onyx 2 is an amazing rechargeable stroker that offers a great sexual simulation. The inner workers that give the sensation of stroking react to your paired Kiiroo toy, be it Pearl 2 or Fuse, so as your toy enters you, his stroking will match the speed and rhythm you are using. And from the keypad on the Onyx 2, he can change the vibration levels and settings of your toy.

In saying all this, while I think any one of those could really assist with keeping things interactive, in your circumstances I would suggest using the OhMiBod Esca 2. The Esca 2 is also powered by Kiiroo’s technology, so enjoys all the same interactivity as the other toys. But the Esca 2 is a strong little egg that would be far more effective for you to use, considering you may be tied up and unable to hold a vibbrator in place. There is a little tail on the Esca 2 which has a few purposes. Firstly, it allows for easy extraction, and secondly it is also where the signal to link to your phone is based, allowing for a stronger signal than if this sensor was located on the internal part. The tail also has a little light on it which will flicker when it’s in use (this setting can be turned off), so your partner knows that what they’re doing on the app is actually happening to the toy. Being an internal toy, also gives him a greater view of your vulva.

These toys and cuffs and locks mentioned above could be the closest thing you could get to being properly dominated while in social isolation. If you give them a go, feel free to drop me a line back and tell how it all went, so to better assist any others that may be after the same kind of thing. Beyond these things, there could be a world of other possible options out there, since whole houses can now be app controlled in terms of powering on and off. It just depends on how creative you really want to get.

Have fun, play safe, stay safe and visit an Oh Zone Store Soon.
