Onlyfans - does it matter how you paid for school?

Posted
by nursingmom9727 nursingmom9727 (New) New Student

So, I have been racked with medical bills, school bills, attorney bills... etc and although my two jobs pay decent, the bills are beginning to outweigh my income. I have considered making an OnlyFans - essentially, a website where people post content that others can subscribe to monthly. Usually, this content is of sexual nature and can range from boudoir-type lingerie pics/semi nude to full-blown pornographic content. I have friends who make thousands a week posting either. However, if I were to do this - then delete the account before graduating/before applying to jobs - will I be able to get hired as a nurse? Is this something that if someone decides to be bitter later on in my career, I can be fired for?

I am in Texas, if that matters. I have no idea how to even begin to search this topic. Thanks!

There is the possibility that your male classmates may see it or a patient during one of your clinicals. It may get back to your nursing administration.

There has been many articles on the internet about bitter ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands posting "revenge porn" on the internet. Those pictures and videos spread like wildfires and the victim spends years trying to get them deleted from all the endless websites.

There's been previous postings here on AN commenting about similar topics. The advice given = DON'T.

Ex-boyfriends/spouses and catty coworkers, vindictive acquaintences - basically anybody who knows you're there can sink you. Employers and BONs can be contacted re your pix. Your Mom & Grandpop.

Not something you'd want, I think.

There is a possibility that ANY classmate may see it, regardless of their gender.

For what is is worth OP, I am very pro-sex positivity and personally do not feel it should have any bearing on your career as a nurse. Unfortunately society as a whole does not agree so there definitely is a possibility this could negatively impact your career in the future.

It doesn't seem worth it. Most people don't make "thousands a week", and the ones who do usually bring their audiences to the site as opposed to finding them there.

I don't care if you're doing pornographic things all over the internet, but some people will. Unless you're committed to being "that" girl, it's better to make your money some other way.

You SHOULD be able to make money this way and it not be a problem. In my mind, you’re an adult and this doesn’t affect your professional life. However, the unfortunate reality is that people won’t all see it that way. If someone likes to cause trouble, it’s so easy to send screenshots or a link to your boss. Or, if you’re interviewing for a job, someone could sink your chances by sending your link around. It’s too bad, but you should really consider all the possibilities before you do it.

Also— the person above who said “most people don’t make thousands a week” is absolutely right. There are way more girls willing to do this than the market supports. It would SUCK if you did this, earned fifty bucks, and then also lost your day job because of it.

The thing you have to remember before you do anything like that is if there's any way to find a record of you doing it, hiring you is begging to be sued. If your coworkers find it, it will get spread around. It'll get bad and then you're going to be making a sexual harassment claim against your job. Nobody wants that risk.

I support anybody that wants to do porn going for it. But local people get found and it gets spread around. I'd never take that chance of putting myself in a position that you're suing my business.

As others have said, once it's on the internet, it's there forever, no matter if you delete the account. I wouldn't care if you were an employee at my clinic, but most of my other employees and some patients would...

Thousands a week is rare unless you already have some type of fan base a.k.a have already done a few films or featured dancer at a club in a major city. In that case, it's a good possibility one of your "fans" could run into you when you are working at a hospital. Not a good scenario and not worth it.

I had a friend who was hard up for cash due to mounting bills - she spent money recklessly. Any way, she decided to do one short porn shoot. She thought it would end her financial troubles if she did a few of them. Turns out, it only paid $500 so she stopped at one. To top it off, a guy she dated about one year after this film was done, found out, and dumped her like a rotten egg. I guess she probably shouldn't have mentioned this to a whole bunch of people.🤷‍♀️

Find a better way....

A lot of people say don't do it as it is a risky choice. However, I say just be careful and if you need the extra cash, don't show your face.

I have experience here. A LOT of it. Trust me when I say- it will not matter. If you have the opportunity to make money online this way and it doesn't bother you then do it. Especially for a site like OnlyFans which is mostly contained to the website subscribers only AND you can block your entire state from accessing your content. 

But always be smart. Don't ever tell people you personally know in real life about it, people can be vindictive and you never know when someone will try to stab you in the back. That's the only time this will become a problem. 

It's incredibly difficult to become so popular that people will recognize you offline. You would have to work VERY hard at promoting it, and at that level you want people to recognize you everywhere. 

A lot of people say once you're online, you're there forever. Sure, but you really think your photos will be the ones that stick around for 10-15.. 20+ years?? When there are new (hotter younger etc) girls popping up every day? 

If you have any questions feel free to ask me.

Bills and more bills,that is life.Do not make things worse for yourself by poor choices.There is no such ting as privacy anymore although health laws say other wise.Look from life experience I can tell you that everything gets found out.That seems your main concern,will you be able to earn that money in secret.No you will not .......
