I used to work in Debenhams – then I bought my first house at 20 after joining OnlyFans 0 394

A FORMER Debenhams make-up artist has told how she bought her first house at the age of 20 after quitting her job and joining OnlyFans.

Chloe Horton, 21, is hugely successful on the platform and credits it with helping her buy a home and travel the world.

Chloe loves to travel the world She thinks it’s important to ignore the haters OnlyFans has helped her buy a home at a young age Despite her job appearing glam, Chloe says it’s hard graft

But the ex-Debenhams make-up artist, from Glasgow, gets frustrated with some of the misconceptions around her job and thinks people should educate themselves.

She says: “The biggest misconception is that people think it’s easy money when in fact it’s not.

“You need to work to be able to achieve your goals on the site, you can’t expect to post five pictures and earn £1,000 because unfortunately that’s not how it works.

“I’d say it’s more like an office job really. They answer emails and we answer mails to our subscribers and it could be over 100 per day.

“Another misconception is that it’s just a porn site.

“You can get all type of content creators. I do underwear and others do workouts, cooking videos and lessons.”

Chloe is thankful for the benefits OnlyFans has afforded her and says it helped her buy a home aged 20, travel the world and treat her loved ones.

She adds: “OnlyFans has definitely turned my life around when it comes to the concept of having money all the time and not having to worry like I used to.

“I managed to buy my own house in 2021 and I’ve been on so many holidays that have created moments for me I’ll never forget.

“Travelling to places like Dubai, the Maldives and Greece among others was unreal.

“I’ve spoiled myself, my family and friends so it’s been good to have that little bit extra to do so now and again.

“I would 100 per cent recommend OnlyFans to woman and men if they were already considering it.

“You are your own boss, set your own hours, post what you’re comfortable with and have no one to answer to but yourself.”

But despite all of her success, she is still the target of vile bullies who call her a prostitute and hurl other hurtful insults.

Chloe deals with trolls by ignoring them but admits anyone keen to follow in her footsteps will need a thick skin.

She says: “People think that it’s not a real job, look down their noses down at us and try to slag us off at any given opportunity.

My biggest tip is to just own it. Be yourself and don’t give a s**t about what anyone has to say because if they’re criticising, they’re probably just unhappy with themselves

“I’m thankful I take it on the chin and that my family actually don’t care at all along with my boyfriend.

“When you join OnlyFans you need to own it, you need to be able to handle the backlash, the criticism and the judging 24/7 because people will talk and judge and bully.

“I’ve had so much hate and bullies over the last few years from being on OnlyFans with people from my hometown talking about me all over social media.

“But that’s what happens when people have a small town mentality and jealousy so I take it on the chin.

“I’ve been called a slut, prostitute, hooker, fat and ugly and all these kinds of names but I just laugh because it shows what kind of people they are rather than me.

“In the beginning it was really bad with the trolling but now not so much as it’s the new norm, everyone does it which I love because people shouldn’t feel like they can’t do something they want to because of spiteful horrible people.

She adds: “My biggest tip is to just own it. Be yourself and don’t give a s**t about what anyone has to say because if they’re criticising, they’re probably just unhappy with themselves.”

Recently another OnlyFans model revealed she gets approached by Celtic fans begging her to humiliate them to satisfy their ‘odd fetish’.

But she had to draw the lines when it involved requests to hurl sectarian abuse.

Porn and Mental Health: The Challenges and Strategies for Coping in the Industry 0 178

Pornography is a billion-dollar industry that has gained widespread popularity across the globe. However, while it may be a source of entertainment for some, the industry can be challenging for performers’ mental health. The pressure to perform and meet the expectations of producers and viewers can take a toll on performers’ mental wellbeing. In this article, we’ll explore the challenges that the porn industry poses to mental health and strategies for coping with them.

The Challenges

  1. Stigma and Shame

The porn industry is still stigmatized, and performers can face a lot of shame and judgment from society. This can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety, making it difficult for performers to seek help and support when needed.

  1. Pressure to Perform

Performers in the porn industry are expected to meet certain expectations and perform at their best every time. This pressure can be overwhelming and can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem.

  1. Isolation and Loneliness

Performing in the porn industry can be a lonely experience, with performers spending long hours on set or on their own, away from friends and family. This can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can take a toll on mental health.

  1. Trauma and Abuse

The porn industry is not immune to issues such as sexual harassment, assault, and exploitation. Performers may experience these traumatic events, leading to conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.

Strategies for Coping

Seek Professional Help

Performers in the porn industry should seek professional help and support when they need it. There are many therapists and counselors who specialize in working with performers in the industry and can help with issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Practice Self-Care

Self-care is crucial for performers in the porn industry. Taking breaks when needed, exercising, and practicing mindfulness and meditation can help performers manage stress and promote mental wellbeing.

Surround Yourself with Supportive People

Having a supportive network of friends, family, and colleagues can make a big difference in performers’ mental health. Surrounding yourself with people who understand the challenges of the industry and offer non-judgmental support can help performers cope with the stresses of the job.

Address Trauma and Abuse

Performers who have experienced trauma and abuse in the industry should seek support and address these issues head-on. This may involve therapy, reporting incidents to the authorities, and taking legal action if necessary.


The porn industry poses significant challenges to performers’ mental health, from stigma and shame to pressure to perform and trauma and abuse. However, with the right strategies, performers can cope with these challenges and maintain good mental wellbeing. Seeking professional help, practicing self-care, surrounding yourself with supportive people, and addressing trauma and abuse are just a few strategies that can help performers in the porn industry maintain good mental health.

Navigating Consent and Boundaries in the Porn Industry: A Guide for Newcomers 0 165

Consent and boundaries are crucial aspects of the porn industry, and it’s essential for newcomers to understand how to navigate these issues. In this article, we’ll provide a guide for those who are new to the industry on how to approach consent and boundaries in a professional and respectful manner.

First and foremost, it’s important to understand that consent is always required in the porn industry. This means that every actor must give explicit and enthusiastic consent to any sexual act that is portrayed on camera. Consent can be given verbally or non-verbally, but it must always be clear and enthusiastic.

In order to ensure that consent is obtained, communication is key. Actors should have open and honest conversations with their scene partners and the director prior to filming. They should discuss what they are comfortable with and what their boundaries are, as well as any specific instructions or concerns.

It’s also important for actors to feel empowered to set their own boundaries and to speak up if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe during filming. This means that if an actor does not want to perform a particular act or if they feel that their boundaries are being pushed, they have the right to stop the scene and speak to the director about their concerns.

It’s also essential for actors to be aware of their own physical and emotional limits. This means that they should take breaks as needed, communicate with their scene partner and director about any discomfort or pain, and engage in self-care practices to ensure that they are physically and emotionally prepared for the demands of the job.

Finally, it’s important for actors to have a support system in place. This can include talking to other actors who have experience in the industry, seeking out counseling or therapy, and having trusted friends and family members who can provide emotional support.

Navigating consent and boundaries in the porn industry can be challenging, but it’s an essential part of maintaining a safe and respectful work environment. By following these guidelines, newcomers to the industry can ensure that they are approaching these issues in a professional and responsible manner.
