Scenario: My wife wants to try OnlyFans to make some extra money, is this a good idea?

On the Gee and Ursula Show, hosts Gee Scott and Ursula Reutin tackle other people’s problems in a segment called…Scenarios.

More scenes: My boss won’t let me go on vacation to attend my sister’s wedding, what should I do?

imagine: Right now, my wife and I, probably like you, have been hit hard by inflation, and we’re looking for ways to get a job, take on some extra work, or start some kind of side business. My wife had an idea that she said would allow us both to quit our jobs, make more money than ever before, and work from home. She read on OnlyFans about a couple making $20,000 a month. She wants us to be the next couple to show everything to the public and get paid. I thought it was just some crazy idea that would pass, but she got excited about it and researched. She said we would post whatever we wanted. We can even include moments when we’re just lying in bed and we don’t even have to do anything. Now I’m reluctant, but she says most of the videos are hers, and then she’ll let me in every now and then. Now, I don’t know what to do. First, she seemed too excited about it. It seems there is more to it than just money. Second, I worry that our friends will find out, our parents, or the parents of our children’s friends. We have a six year old and an eight year old. But I have to admit that it makes sense to be able to work from home and only do it when the kids are at school or in bed. With this money we can buy a house for the first time and we can buy a place big enough for my mom to live with us. She has some health issues and needs to be with her family.

Ursula Roydin: OK, first of all, you asked me if I had an OnlyFans account. I said, of course not. So I’m asking you, do you have it? I shouldn’t assume anything. First, it’s a mistake to think they’re going to quit their jobs and make $20,000 a month. You don’t know what people are going to pay you unless you do and see that they are willing to pay you. Just because other people do it, and they make that much money, doesn’t mean you’ll do it.

Giscott: All MLM wants to say a word to you.

Ursula: Don’t think that just because someone else is doing very, very well means you will have the same experience. Obviously, he said, “I’m worried about what my parents will think, what other family members will think, what our friends will think, and more importantly, what will my young children think,” which is a big Consideration. Would you be proud to tell your kids about it? ‘Mum and I are taking nude pictures of ourselves and putting them online? If you’re comfortable with that, then you can.

Andrew “Chef” Lanier: It’s a scary thought. I hate being Debbie Downer. But it’s a scary, scary thought. You’d somehow make yourself in the top 1% of OnlyFans, just lounging in bed with just a cup of coffee and a sheet suggestively wrapped around your shoulders. I don’t think that’s how OnlyFans work. Plus, once the content is out, you can never get it back. I hope you don’t have any jobs that require you to face the public. I know people can make money out of it, but if your business plan is naked, try this. First, try polling your friends. Ask your friends, “How many of you are willing to pay to see us naked together?” I bet the answer will be zero. Your business plan is right there. Just talk to your friends and see what they think.

oops: I only have one piece of advice for them. Just don’t give up your main job. If you’re going to have a side hustle – by the way, as someone who loves a side hustle, that’s my business. Always keep your main job, I always advise you, Nick.

Nick Crescia: you do. I’ll put up something else and say, “Go ahead.”

oops: Keep the main thing, the main thing. If you want a chance to see if you can make a little money, go for it! On your OnlyFans account, you can do whatever you want. As for your friends talking about you and what people have to say, this is what I’ve learned in life anyway: if you’re rich, if you’re poor, there’s always going to be people talking about you and they’re talking bad about you behind your back. So don’t worry about what other people will say, Nick.

gap: Well, the line has to be drawn here. These guys definitely don’t like this guy, and I’m going to rehash the other stuff you said, oops. You can do a lot of weird, weird, questionable things with a little bit of money, but on this one, I think they should stick with what you do, plus a little DoorDash or something. They just don’t fit in at this point.

oops: fair answer.

Ursula: Great answer, Nick. Good answer.
