I have a friend - let's call her, "A" - who recently started an OnlyFans page simply for fun. We sat down last week to discuss how it's going for her and why she finds it so fun and empowering .... here's some things we discussed*:
"A" isn't in a relationship right now, and doesn't really feel like she has the time to be dating, but she does miss the connection and attention. She doesn't have the desire to be on the dating apps - who can blame her? - and doesn't necessarily want to meet up with anyone right now. So, she decided to try an OF page and see what happened.
Here's what she's found after a few months of posting half-naked photos of herself online for people to buy:
All of this makes sense, if you think about it. "A" is getting in touch with her own sexual side in a way that makes her feel empowered, confident, safe, and beautiful. She's learning to love her body more and more each day and find fulfilment in taking photos of herself - the compliments and payments from men are just bonuses, she says.
Will she continue this if she gets into a relationship? She's unsure at the moment, but can also see how it can benefit a relationship in the future. (To be covered in a different post ...)
