adult content creators how does onlyfans work make money online onlyfans 10x onlyfans course onlyfans creator onlyfans statistics what is onlyfans work from home May 25, 2021

You might be wondering what is all that hype about OnlyFans. Why do you hear so often about this adult entertainment site? Or is it even that? The truth is that OnlyFans is growing exponentially and you want to be part of this! Let me explain why!




First and foremost, let's address the elephant in the room. What is the connection between s-ex work and OnlyFans? Those two get often used in the same sentences as if those terms were interchangeable. But you could not be further from the truth. 

Yes, many OnlyFans creators produce Xrated content. Are you so surprised? It is one of the very few platforms out there that actually allows you to do so! Openly, freely, without shame for loving sex or appearing on your pictures without your bra. There is so much prohibition out there, protecting society, that we are absolutely stripped of any opportunity to be naked or to openly speak about our sexual experiences and desires. All of that is pushed into the corner, as if it didn’t exist. And anything you repress, will inevitably show up in a different way - sexual harassment, assaults, excessive use of porn. It is all linked. 

What you need to remember is that the choice is  yours. If you want to see this type of content, this is the place to go. But if you don’t, then find other accounts here. 




OnlyFans is far more than an adult content site. It was founded in 2016 by Timothy Stokely and the initial idea was to create a platform for performers to provide clips and photos to followers for a monthly subscription fee. It was a great concept to embrace because musicians were facing a different reality since platforms like Spotify took off. 

The site soon started to attract a wider audience and many creators saw the opportunity. And that is how the platform developed its own unique customer base. Not only is it used by artists, musicians and other performers, but Only Fans draws in also chefs, fitness trainers, celebrities, influencers that all use the platform to develop genuine relationships with their fans and to provide their customers with exclusive content.  



According to Timothy Stokely, OnlyFans hits the sweet spot between INFLUENCER CULTURE and WEBCAMMING. It is a platform for creators to charge for their goods or services. 

Here are some STATS, numbers that will show you that you need to take this seriously!




1 - 1M+ Content Creators  


There are no official figures to look into and there are various numbers on the net. However, there is a pattern of growth that you can’t overlook.

The numbers go from 60,000 creators in 2019 to 350,000 in March 2020. By late August 2020,however, Variety stated that OnlyFans currently had 700,000 content creators.

As of December 2020, OnlyFans is said to have more than 1Million creators on the platform!

Does it sound incredible? Well so did Covid at first. All I see is clear correlation because the whole world was in lockdown last year and digital marketing in any shape or form became the source of income for millions of people. 


2 - 7,000 – 8,000 New Content Creators Per Day



And it does not stop! The site is becoming the new Go-To platform. And once there is trend, people follow. 

In early 2019, OnlyFans founder Tim Stokely was quoted in The West Australian as saying, "We are currently on-boarding over 3000 new content creators every week." Of course, this was well before COVID had everybody sitting at home wondering how to spend their time. Since then, more and more content creators have signed up to OnlyFans.

By May 2020, the site was gaining 7,000- 8,000 new content creators per day.


3 - 50 Million Registered Users


And the growth happened also in terms of users. Many people have turned to OnlyFans when in COVID-enforced lockdown. There are more creators but also more people that have found the site and signed up as fans. With so many creators on the site, you can come in and find your influencers you want to follow, the content you want to watch, the videos you want to see. 

Whatever it is, it is there. Fully accessible to you. For a few dollars a month. It is brilliant because it gives fans direct access to creators they love and the creators are awarded for their work. 


4 - 500,000 New Users Per Day | +- 15 Million New users Per Month! 


And again - the number is growing!

OnlyFans founder Tim Stokely was quoted in The West Australian in 2019, saying that OnlyFans had 1,000 new users registering every hour. Only to claim one year later that OnlyFans averages 500,000 new users per day.

I don’t care what you say but any platform generating these numbers deserves all the praise and attention!


5 - OnlyFans Has Paid Out More Than $2 Billion to Creators


Again, it is hard to know the exact numbers but there are mentions in various articles as in Variety that claims Onlyfans paid out more than $1 billion to its creators (August 2020).

I can tell you what. I have been on OnlyFans from August 2020 and I went from $400 to $40,000 each month (April 2021). Not everyone is so successful on their account but there are certainly a lot of people that are earning a lot of money on OnlyFans. You can never underestimate the power of a wide audience. The investment or the fee they pay you might be tiny but multiplied by thousands of people, it is definitely not to be overlooked. 


6 - Bella Thorne Earned More Than $1 Million in Her First 24 Hours



Take this example. Actress, singer, and model Bella Thorne made quite an impact during her short period on OnlyFans. Her time on the platform may have been brief, but it was clearly eventful.

She joined OnlyFans in August 2020, setting a platform record in her first 24 hours, earning more than $1 million in revenue. She had enabled this by announcing her plans in a video montage on her Instagram account (where she has 24.3 million followers). 

Before long, her earnings had doubled to $2 million. Her presence there was more than controversial and triggered a lot of refund requests and issues that OnlyFans had to address. However, this is what is actually possible when you turn your Instagram following into a paid audience. 


7 - Top 1% of Accounts Make 33% of the Money



However, let’s be honest. Let’s look at the reality without the rose coloured glasses. As XSRUS observes, the revenue of content creators follows a classic power-law distribution.. The top performers earn substantially more than everybody else. The top 1% of accounts make 33% of all the money, and the top 10% of accounts make 73% of all the money.

And it is undeniable that if you already have a ready-made audience and you bring them with  you, your success is imminent. So many influencers and celebrities do have a natural advantage when it comes to earning money this way. 

But also, it does not mean a thing. I did not have the following. So keep this in mind but don’t use it as an excuse. 


8 - Average Earnings from OnlyFans is $180/month


What you need to remember, OnlyFans is like any other platform. It does not happen just because. It requires work, dedication, quality content, engagement. It requires you to make it work. There is no magical process that will get you from O to Hero without doing anything. The world just does not work that way.

So make sure you remember this as well. XSRUS has crunched the numbers to come up with some estimated earnings by OnlyFans creators. They calculate that the median accounts earn about $180/month. We have even seen information that most creators don’t make more than $145 dollars. 

Whether it is the truth or not, hard to know. Especially since the platform is on such a rise. The truth is I know dozens of creators that certainly make more than that and I know some that struggle. That is why I have created ONLYFANS 10X COURSE so you can learn if you need to.



All that matters is what you want and what you are willing to do. No success comes overnight. What you need to focus on is the potential. There is no ceiling. So remember these numbers so you can laugh at them when you bust through. 





So what do you think now? Knowing all these numbers, having a deeper insight into OnlyFans and what it really is, what is the potential. It is nothing else than another social media platform. This one is already set up to earn you an income from your following.

Your niche is a choice. You can go full out on Xrated content if that is your niche. Or you can just sing, sell drawings or do cooking classes. The options are limitless. There are no restrictions so the choice is really yours.
