By now we have all seen this virus completely infect all forms of life. You can’t look at Instagram without a Coronavirus meme being posted every 5 minutes. While various countries, companies and people are all at risk the greatest population to be affected both directly and indirectly- hands down -are sex workers. In an industry that heavily relies on intimate contact, “how do you do social distancing when your salary is dependent on socializing?” (Sherae Lascelles via Yahoo! News)
First thing is first, if you are feeling symptoms or could have been exposed please check with the official CDC website and also your states Department of Health website. The health tests and everything else have been declared no cost for any American citizen, so if you’re worried please make sure you go and get tested! Check this list for phone numbers of local and state Health Departments.
Now might be the time to test out online sex work if your club’s doors have shut. I know many of you are considering trying something like OnlyFans(OF). There’s many different routes to take with online sex work that aren’t confined to strictly webcam. Without naming every single site in the e-adult space, we can narrow down a few ideas for you to try!
Pay per month sites have gained in popularity recently. Hopefully you have saved a decent amount of sexy photos and clips to post if you go the paid subscription route. If you’re able to spend a few hours a day filming your own content and pics outside of working with photographers this should be easy to figure out. Whispers of a site called StripIn have been circulating but I have not been able to verify if it’s legit yet.
Does making your own content sound fun and interest you? There is a huge online community for purchasing clips from amateurs and experts alike. Virtually everyone has a chance to sell their videos in this space, and there really is nothing you “have” to do. If you’re not comfortable with posting nudity you can film clips that allow you to remain fully clothed. We recommend looking at sites like ManyVids and IWantClips for inspiration.
Familiar with Reddit? If you’re not stumped by the unique culture that is Reddit, there is a large community there for sex workers. We also recommend trying out cross promotion with other models who have established platforms. Many models also offer coaching for sites like OF, it’s worth the money to invest in your education as it isn’t just about posting content anymore.
For more ideas on how to make extra income right now, check out @MiddleAgeStripper on Instagram. Her page has so many great videos and infographics especially if you’re new or just need to refresh your hustle. RacksToRiches is tracking club closures and expected reopening dates daily across the US. With so many clubs and businesses closing people are going to be looking for other sources of income. Now is a great time to build up a fanbase because you have the time to dedicate to it.
Please understand that online sex work isn’t fast money and it is a privilege as many don’t have access to the internet. Be patient with how much work it takes to grow what many have over years, in weeks/months. Hopefully posts like this with some solid resources can help make the transition easier, we all know how scary it can be.
