Woman Gives Up Nursing Job After Ultimatum From Employer Over OnlyFans Account, Makes Up to $75K a Month

An ex-nurse, known as Allie Rae on OnlyFans, said she decided to pursue online sex work full-time after her former boss gave her an ultimatum.

A Boston mother-of-three faced a major dilemma earlier this: continue her years-long nursing career or pursue OnlyFans full-time. She chose the latter.

According to the Daily Beast, the 37-year-old mother, who is known as Allie Rae online, quit her job at a top Massachusetts hospital back in December after her co-workers discovered her racy photos posted on Instagram and The Chive. She told the outlet that six of her colleagues had notified management about her social media activity, but was ultimately given a warning, as the content was relatively mild and she never disclosed her real identity or place of employment. However, Rae said the incident made her uncomfortable because she felt as though people were concentrating more on her internet work than her performance in the ICU.

Fast-forward to March of this year, when a number of nurses in her unit came across her OnlyFans page. Rae said her co-workers paid for a subscription only to take multiple screenshots and later presented them to their boss. 

“It was like Mean Girls for adults,” she recalled. “They got the director involved and it was, ‘You need to get rid of this account or we can’t have you working here.’ That really bothered me.”

She quit shortly after.

“I didn’t even need the money,” she said about her nursing job. “I was making more money on OnlyFans than I was as a nurse and was only doing it because I loved it—but once I became ‘the girl who does OnlyFans,’ it tore me apart.”

Rae said she launched her OnlyFans after receiving countless Instagram DMs from people asking her to join the platform. She brought up the idea to her husband, who ultimately gave his support and helped her create an account in September 2020.

“I posted a couple of photos and by the end of the day, I had 20 subscribers,” she remembers. “So, I posted every day—or every other day—and by the end of our first month, we’d made $8,000, which surpassed my monthly nursing salary. And it was COVID, so it wasn’t the most pleasant time at work. To see that much money come in with such little effort…,” she mutters, trailing off. “This was a completely new frontier. I was just your typical girl,” she adds. “As far as how it felt, my husband and I were married very young, so it was liberating.”

The couple shares three children who are ages 12, 17, and 18. Rae said she and her husband discussed her OnlyFans with their two oldest, and have taken steps to protect them as best as possible.

“I told them I was doing some influencer-type work, and they were like, ‘We got it. We’re good. We know,’” Rae recalled. “It was an unspoken thing where I’m sure they understand where we’re dabbling. They had a pretty open mind about it. And we’ve blocked them—and their friends—on all our platforms.”

Rae reportedly makes around $65,000 to $75,000 a month on OnlyFans. That money comes from $12.99 subscriptions and pay-per-view clips that cost anywhere between $7 and $30 each. She told the Daily Beast that her content has become much more risqué over the past year, going from scantily-clad pictures to images and videos showing her masturbating or engaging in sexual acts with her husband. And while Daily Beast says it reviewed Rae’s financial documents, she recently told the New York Post that she actually estimates a $200,000 monthly income from her OnlyFans.

Rae told the Daily Beast she sometimes misses working as a nurse, but is still hurt over the way she was treated by her former bosses and co-workers.

“I did have a passion for what I did—doing something meaningful. It’s the purpose that I’ll miss the most,” she explained. “I won’t say that what I do now is empty, because I do give a lot of advice to people struggling with their relationships… but I do miss nursing … It’s very, very little money for saving a life every day—especially in the NICU. That really opened my eyes. There’s definitely an underappreciation for nurses.”
