According to Forbes magazine, about 2 million creators worldwide make six figures from Instagram, TikTok, and OnlyFans. While Instagram and TikTok are public platforms, creators on OnlyFans are able to set a monthly price for their fans to access their exclusive content.
OnlyFans, which is a U.K. based video and social site, is owned and directed by Leonid Radvinsky. The platform has become popular in pop culture and has even been referenced in songs such as Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” remix featuring the legendary Beyoncé.
It has now become the norm for celebrities, influencers, and everyday people to use the site. Users have created content ranging from cooking tutorials, workout videos, beauty content, and more while some have used it to promote sexually explicit content.
In 2021, Forbes reported that the company was making about $390 million a year. It was also reported that 85 percent of payments on OnlyFans were from sexually explicit content, making it hard for the brand to ever escape that specific branding.
Here are three Black women content creators who have chosen to use the popular website in their own unique way.
