A 69 year-old OnlyFans model has shared her story of how she films steamy sex scenes with younger “volunteers” to make more money than she’s ever had in her life.
Profiled in a Vice World News documentary, Michelle revealed how her journey into the adult side of the internet has been motivated by a desire to financially support her disabled son while she battles a debilitating heart condition.
But despite this immediate success, Michelle acknowledged the discrimination she had faced because of her age.
“Nobody wants to picture their parents having sex, and you sure don’t want to picture your grandparents having sex,” she said.
“People think that if you’re past a certain age, you should be crocheting blankets and not having sex, but do you know what, you can crochet blankets and have sex.”
Still, unfazed by any online abuse directed her way, Michelle explained that she set up her OnlyFans channel at the start of January 2020, and has since made made more than $200,000 (£146k).
And despite treating herself to a new car, Michelle revealed that the money she makes is not intended to sustain a luxurious lifestyle, but instead to support her disabled son.
With a recurring heart condition, the model confessed her fears that her boy will not be able to support herself if she passes away suddenly.
Unsurprisingly therefore, Michelle is thankful for the opportunities sex work has granted her, grateful for the fact that finally, at the age of almost 70, she no longer worries about money.
“Every human being has the fight to have sexual pleasure in her life. It’s a very empowering platform,” she stressed.
Michelle admitted that sex work had never initially been an obvious career path.
She remembered how she turned to the industry after finding herself unemployed from her role with an investment company at the age of 55.
A friend recommended she try full body tantric massages – a sensual massage practice – before clients gradually suggested that she go even further.
And after having surgery, Michelle claimed that she needed time off to recover, so set up a page on the popular adult image and video sharing site OnlyFans, where she could publish racy content to paying followers.
With her page immediately a roaring success, Michelle soon began recruiting younger volunteers to film content for her OnlyFans with.
Anthony is one man who took Michelle up on her offer, and he described her as “one of a kind”
“I think it’s more exciting for older guys to have a younger woman… she’s got the OnlyFans and all these guys want to be with her, so I feel special,” he described.
Michelle continued: “I have absolutely no problem being paid for the service I provide, any more than a plumber would have a problem, and so… I take care of their plumbing.”
