While a few people may just now be learning about the benefits of OnlyFans thanks to that Beyoncé line on the remix to Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage," anyone who wisely and commendably adheres to the practice of paying creators for the adult content they consume is no stranger to the site.
While the site isn't reserved solely for those in the adult content crafting business, that's certainly its most popular realm of interest. And in the latest episode of Complex World, we take a look at how sex workers have continued to empower themselves and the industry at large by turning to OnlyFans during the financially rocky COVID-19 era.
The ensuing discussion features commentary from @thechocolatedomme_, who specializes in financial domination, and independent creative pornographer @vextape. Dr. Amanda Gesselman, Associated Director of Research at the Kinsey Institute, also joins host Natasha Martinez for the episode.
"[Sexual gratification] is actually not the whole story," Dr. Gesselman said. "In our own study... we found that, of people who visit cam sites, about 30 percent of them reported that they have felt a personal connection with a webcam model [and] that they've felt some sort of emotional connection or personal connection."
