Bella Thorne joins OnlyFans (instagram / bellathorne)

The global outbreak of the Corona virus has contributed a lot to the OnlyFans subscription site, which, although launched as early as 2016, has seen a mad jump in the number of subscribers only recently.

Last April, it garnered about 150,000 new entrants every 24 hours, with about 50 million subscribers currently registered on the site.

The number of content creators in it also jumped during the closure, from 200,000 to 700,000 content creators.

Earlier this month we told you about former Disney star Bella Thorne, who became the top earner on the site with over $ 2 million a week - and a million dollars she earned on the first day.

Network star Kia Corbridge also earned about $ 200,000 during the closure period just by sharing her provocative photos and videos with fans on the site.



Thorne and Corbridge are just some of the millions - from teachers and nurses to waitresses and firefighters - who have joined this lucrative trend and share content directly with their followers for a monthly fee.

The site lists entertainment celebs and fitness experts, but it has become the main source of livelihood for the adult entertainment industry, as sex industry workers and porn stars have started using the online platform to share their fans' blatant content for an additional fee.

Many fans also make special requests from their stars and ask for photos, voicemails or specific videos for higher amounts that they will be willing to pay.



Although OnlyFans seems like a fast and glamorous way to make money, especially in a time of economic crisis like this, the creators on the site reveal its dark and "evil" side that might make you think twice before signing up for it.

Its creators are at risk of having their private videos stolen and sold online and in addition, there is concern that the platform - whose annual turnover is estimated at $ 1.5 billion - has become a playground for stalker and pedophiles.

Former student Kaya, 24, told The Sun: "Since I joined OnlyFans, I've had stalkers and received a lot of death threats. Sometimes it was very scary. One of the murder threats I can not forget is that some guy sent me a picture of you. He told me it was the shovel he would use after he had cut my body into tiny pieces and buried them. I also received a message saying 'this is your address' and a picture of my house. It was very very scary. I had a stalker for over 18 months. The worst part was that it was a woman. She harassed me online every day, several hours a day. She wrote harsh comments, sent messages to my friends and tried to find my family members. She set up my fake profiles and even sent emails to random people from my hometown, impersonating my brother Lost in the hope of finding my family members to do all the crazy things she planned. "



In addition to sharing provocative photos, Kaya, Melankshire, admits that one of the most popular things on her site is ranking intimate organs of men who send her photos.

That in itself sweeps her nearly $ 40,000 a year.

"Men like to feed their egos. I rank through text, voicemail or video, which is the most expensive option," she said.



Kaya is far from alone when it comes to stalkers or adult harassment.

We also told you about 28-year-old Stephanie Palomers recently - and although she said she left the strip clubs for a full-time job at OnlyFans after encountering a stalker who followed her home, she says that OnlyFans also carries dangers.

She said: "I thought I got rid of them, but I also got a stalker on the site. He has been following me, as far as I know, since December 2019."

"Many users are at huge risk of abuse and exploitation"

The site has also become a hotbed for cybercriminals who steal videos and photos to trade in Darknet or sell on lucrative black market sites.

During the closure, the UK's line for victims of porn revenge 'received dozens of complaints from OnlyFans users who reported that their content was shared without their consent.

Helpline director Sophie Mortimer told The Sun: "What started as an easy way to make extra money during these difficult times is becoming more and more of a nightmare. Many users are at huge risk of abuse and exploitation."



Rachel Horman-Brown, a lawyer who works with Paladin, the National Stock Protection Service, added that women should think twice before signing up for the site.

She said: "I have come across several cases where women have experienced abuse through this site. Receiving rape and other sexual threats is routine and it is horrific. Women experience stalking and are regularly murdered by men, and such sites can alleviate stalking in a way that was not possible a few years ago. ".

While fans bombard women with requests for specific content, many women fulfill their request even though they are not comfortable with it, as the amounts of money offered to them are large and tempting.

Gemma, who works as a legal assistant in the North East of England, said: "I only earn a few hundred dollars a week, which helps me get along. The more explicit and blatant the video, the more men are willing to pay. I do not go there but it is tempting."



The network's influencer and former YouTube star, Celestia Vega, 22, recently left the platform after entering rehabilitation.

She said: "I felt I needed to keep getting more and more extreme. I told myself I was strong and wanted to pretend I was like that, but I felt terrible. I smiled at the pictures but I was not there. I did things like a robot. I could not stop because everyone told me I had to keep going. "I was forced. The truth is, it felt that way."



Linda Thomson, from the UK Women's Support Project, said that although many see the site as empowering and financially viable, it actually involves risk.

She said: "Our concern is that users do not have all the information about the degree of risk of these sites and how they fail to protect the women."



Despite limiting the age of registration to a site that stands at 18, there is also concern that girls under the age of allowed are selling content on the platform, which could create new potential for pedophiles.

A 17-year-old girl recounted how she earned $ 20,000 to $ 25,000 a month since signing up for the site when she was 16. Andy Burroughs, head of the NSPCC's online child safety policy, said: "We urgently need laws to protect our children online."

To join OnlyFans, "fans" have to pay between $ 5 and $ 50 a month for sharing photos of their favorite creators.

OnlyFans takes 20 percent of the profits.

Subscribers can also pay for private messages and paid videos.

The number of content creators has skyrocketed recently, with many of them being sex industry workers who failed to meet clients in person during the closure period.

Others just tried to close the month.

On the site you will also find nurses, lawyers, supermarket workers, therapists, firefighters, soldiers and construction workers.



One profile of a history teacher in her 50s states that she began posting explicit videos as the school closed due to the spread of the virus.

Another elementary school teacher from Buckinghamshire was fired after offering on-site escort services for $ 2,000 a night.



OnlyFans was founded by 37-year-old Timothy Stokely.

Last summer, the banker's son paid about $ 3 million to buy an apartment in Bishops' Stuartford, England.

The success of his venture opened a door for criminals, with an estimated 3 million photos and 750 hours of video leaked from the site this year.

This week one of the criminals claimed to have set up a fake account with stolen content produced by OnlyFans and earned about $ 8,000 over a period of a few days.

Kia is now trying to form a union for sex industry workers to increase user safety.

She said: "Every day my content is leaked to the net or people talk about me in forums and other sites. This is the worst part of the job. Sites that use stolen content should be fined and closed."

Honza Sarvanka, of the law firm of Calister Oliverius, which specializes in OnlyFans cases, said removing all leaked content from the network is an impossible task.

He said: "Trying to remove all the videos is like an endless game. The truth is that people who star on this site should take into account all the risks that come with it and stay alert 24/7."

Bella Thorne is the top earner on the site
