Revealed: The X-rated lives of Gold Coast’s OnlyFans stars

 

THESE Gold Coast women are used to earning big bucks for their day job, but it wasn't always the way.

About 12 months ago Teagan Kaye was unemployed during the coronavirus pandemic when she turned to content sharing platform OnlyFans.

The subscription-based website has built a reputation for offering X-rated photos of women for a fee.

The 20-year-old Gold Coaster said on the first day of using the site, she made about $2000 - and she's not alone.

The Bulletin has listed the Gold Coast women who say they earn six figure incomes from the site and what they did before becoming an X-rated star.

Gold Coast stripper and model Tyana Hansen says she earns six figures a year on OnlyFans but admits adult entertainment is a world away from who she was when she first arrived on the Gold Coast in her late teens.

"It was a complete shock coming to the Gold Coast - the Gold Coast is corrupt," she says, laughing.

"I was a sweet innocent girl, I was. I am. But I came to the Gold Coast, I went to uni, I was doing a double degree."

She started working as a stripper and travelling five or six times a year overseas.

"I would take breaks from stripping, I went to work as a safety officer at one point for a big mining company. It was Work Health and Safety. Ran the site, ran the toolbox meetings.

"I did it for a year but I was like 'This is boring, I can make $250,000 a year working for myself for two days a week'. Or I can work for someone else and get yelled at for $1200 a week. People hate safety officers," she reflects.

At the time, McGreachin told her 70,000 Instagram followers: "We rescued piglets a few months ago and I am now being charged with rescuing them and those two piglets have now been taken and put in a holding area for the meantime. I'm not really sure where they are or how they are, which sucks".

FOR Teagan Kaye OnlyFans is more than a website to sell X-rated photos - it's a stepping stone to building a dream career.

The 20-year-old from the Gold Coast started using the online subscription site when she was without work.

"I started because I couldn't find a job. I thought I would give it a go for a month and it went really, really well," she told the Bulletin.

Ms Kaye was tight-lipped on her weekly earnings, but revealed she is among the top 2.2 per cent of creators earning money on the site.

"I used to work at Subway and got $200 a week. When I started Only Fans, I made about $1000 to $2000 on the first day.

"That was crazy for me. I had never earned so much money in a day."

Kennedy told news.com.au she had always felt "super comfortable" in her body and because she already had a significant male following on her Instagram account, where she posts pole dancing videos, she decided to give OnlyFans a go.

In an interview with the Kyle and Jackie O Show in January, the couple revealed how Kennedy's X-rated job works and why they believe it is the secret to their successful marriage.

Her OnlyFans biograph says she is in the top two per cent of profiles and provides nude photos and videos.

GOLD Coast tennis star Bernard Tomic's girlfriend Vanessa Sierra revealed in March she was a millionaire thanks to selling raunchy photos on OnlyFans.

Sierra also suggested she was the bigger earner in her relationship with Tomic.

The former Love Island contestant describes herself as a businesswoman and runs an account on OnlyFans where people pay to see bikini and Playboy style nude photos and videos of her.

In an unorthodox move she also doubles as Tomic's tennis coach.

"I have had a lot of comments saying that I am using him for his money," Sierra told 60 Minutes.

"And I just don't think people realise how much money I earn, to be honest.

"I am definitely not the WAG.

"I won't get into exact numbers but if I wanted to retire today I could do so comfortably.

"I really don't want to go into exact figures (about her OnlyFans earnings) but I have earnt over one million dollars."

Tomic has famously appeared in her videos and clearly has no problem with her online business endeavours.

"When my partner met me he already knew what I was doing, so I think if someone was to have an issue with it they wouldn't choose to date me in the first place," she said.

"I don't see anything to be ashamed of.

"It is such a backwards way of thinking to think that you should be ashamed of your body or ashamed of being comfortable in your own skin."
