This verbatim article is based on a transcribed conversation with a 41-year-old OnlyFans creator who uses the stage name Sarah Juree. The Insider verifies his income and employment termination with documentation. The following has been edited for length and clarity.
I really like my teaching profession. Schools take their fifth graders on field trips to my classroom in Indiana as part of a government funded youth program. My job is to talk to them about the different types of STEM careers they might consider pursuing in science, technology, engineering and math.
Despite having a full-time job, I was juggling five side hustles to try to support myself financially as a single mom., including teaching group exercise classes, teaching Keto nutrition, teaching kids, a teeth whitening business, and designing shirts and mugs.
I teach all day and then work on one of my side hustles until I fall asleep. I feel constantly stretched and so overwhelmed with effort that I often end up crying in the bathtub at night. My kids started calling me “sad mommy.”
I became more and more depressed because of the financial stress. Then inflation skyrocketed – gas prices skyrocketed, my grocery bills doubled and I became even more financially desperate.
A friend started an OnlyFans page in April 2022 and told me he made $10,000 a month. I decided to give it a try and started a page just to sell nudes on the side to supplement my teaching income.
Last June I tried during summer vacation. Within days, my photos were copied and sent to my employer. I was sent a termination letter and my 20-year teaching career – and main source of income – came to an abrupt end.
I believe that firing is a catalyst for a new direction in life
I have made my entire annual teaching salary in just six months. As a teacher I make $55,000 a year, but in the last six months I’ve made over $58,000 through OnlyFans.
The most I ever made in a month was $17,000, which was right after I got fired. Since I got laid off I have made a total of $75,000.
However, my income fluctuates and I have months from $3,000 to $10,000. I still have to work hard to do that because it involves a lot of marketing. I promote my OnlyFans page on social media sites like Facebook.
When I get friend requests from guys, I accept them and send a link to my OnlyFans account via Messenger.
As a way to increase my income, I found a niche by leaning on the teacher fantasy like many of my fans. I do this by offering exclusive report cards where I rate their masculinity and giving loyal fans “Miss Sarah” stickers. I mainly sell nude photos and candid videos behind a paywall as well as video chats. I also sold my panties.
After taking my kids to school I spend most of my day answering messages from fans, shooting and editing content and posting on the platform about four times a day. Fans pay $9.99 a month to see my content. I do everything and I do all the admin work myself to keep costs down, including responding to fans’ messages.
Being an OnlyFans model was mostly a positive experience, but I was dragged down by a lot of internet trolls who tried to shame and humiliate my body after I got fired. Some people say I have cellulite or stretch marks, but I’m working hard to build up my confidence so I don’t let it affect me.
Getting laid off was heartbreaking at first, but now I’m on the road to financial abundance.
