Niamh O’Connor has opened up about her decision to sign-up for the X-rated subscription site OnlyFans.
The platform has exploded in popularity over the past few months, allowing content creators to earn money from users who subscribe to their account for private content.
The Irish TikTok star told Goss.ie why she chose to start an account on the site: “From a young age I always said I wanted to be a Playboy bunny.”
“Then I wanted to be a Page 3 model – I always had a fascination and interest with that line of work,” the 23-year-old admitted.
“My family are not surprised at all. They have been super super supportive,” the Louth native continued, “My parents are quite young and they’re not old fashioned in their thinking, so they see that the world is moving forward.”
“My family see the up side of it, but there’s also obviously a couple of downsides to it too – like people have sent stuff to my family.”
Niamh explained that some of her private content had been leaked and sent to her family: “My little brother is only 12 and people have sent him some of my content – so that’s the kind of price you do pay.”
“To be honest, we kind of knew that would happen so my dad just shut down all his social medias and that was the end of that.”
The social media star described the subscription service as “revolutionary” for the adult-film industry.
“The porn industry is so corrupt anyway, so OnlyFans is actually kind of revolutionary – in terms of it’s consenting adults that join.”
“You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do on it. It’s all completely up to you, you’re not forced to do anything – you’re not pulled in to any contracts.”
Niamh admitted that she was “pretty lucky” that she had a big social media following prior to starting her OnlyFans – after first rising to fame on TikTok at the end of last year.
She now has over two thousand subscribers since she set up the X-rated account at the end of July.
“My friends and boyfriend are really supportive about it – anything I do they’re really supportive of so I’m blessed in that sense.”
“Hopefully within a few months it will settle and people will let me do my thing. I’ve been pretty lucky.”
Niamh also spoke to Goss.ie about dealing with online trolls and scary threats.
