Former adult film star Mia Khalifa has joined OnlyFans, the British content subscription service.
Khalifa, a Lebanese-American, is famous for speaking out against the adult film industry, criticizing the exploitation inherent in it.
Now, she has transitioned to different careers, going from sports commentary to book-keeping and paralegal work to accountancy. Apart from her regular work, she is also an avid social media personality and web model. By joining OnlyFans, she hopes to connect with her fans.
On Friday, she announced her decision to join OnlyFans on Instagram. She shared a photo of herself eating sushi, her computer screen sitting beside her. The screen was open to her OnlyFans page.
Khalifa posted in the caption: “I have a full time job… as an accountant.”
Even though OnlyFans is a popular web subscription site amongst sex workers, Khalifa has specified that her account will only post SWF (suitable for work) content.
According to the description, Khalifa has thanked her fans for their support. She expressed her excitement to be on a new platform.
Regarding her account, she said, “This is all very new to me, I’ve never been on a platform as fan-facing, so any suggestions for improving my presence here is greatly appreciated! I love you!”
However, Khalifa views her decision to join OnlyFans as an empowering one. She stated, “I am finally growing into my self-confidence in who I am and the decisions I make for me, and this is my way of being myself outside the perimeters of conventional social media.”
“I want to take my power back and just post what I want and what makes me feel good, and I’m just so thankful that y’all are along for this wild ride.”
Subscriptions to OnlyFans content differ in cost, depending on how much the content creator is charging. Khalifa’s OnlyFans subscription costs $11.99 (£9.28) per month.
Many other celebrities, including Bella Thorne, Cardi B, Blac Chyna, Safaree Samuels, and Erica Mena, also have OnlyFans accounts. OnlyFans seems to be gaining more popularity these days, with even Beyonce praising it on social media.
