TSR Coins: Roommates, as many businesses are still closed, people are finding new ways to get these bills paid during the pandemic. And while some are getting crafty and creating face masks, it looks like others are turning to selling whatever they can on OnlyFans.
According to the Huffington Post, OnlyFans has reported a 75% increase in new accounts since social distancing rules went into effect. We know what you’re thinking–folks are getting naked for money, which is true for most users. But, the company says some people are using the platform to sell everything from artwork, workout routines and even cooking tutorials.
The Post caught up with Rae, a new mother living in Southern California, who says she in just one week, she has made about $1,000 through subscriptions and tips by selling topless photos on OnlyFans. She was furloughed last month after the gym she managed shut down due to the coronavirus.
“At first we were told that we would still be paid, but that didn’t last,” she said. “I have a little one, so it was really stressful. I need to make sure he’s taken care of. It had already made quite a difference fr us. Being stuck at home, I have to network and put work into promoting my page.”
As we previously reported, the United States is not only fighting the coronavirus, our nation is now faced with the issue of unemployment. NBC new reports that another 6.6 million people have filed for unemployment since the coronavirus outbreak, bringing the total to 16 million over the past three weeks.
