A mum who signed up to OnlyFans to help pay for her daughter's law degree now rakes in $20,000 (£14,000) a month.
Marcela Alonso, from New York in the US, joined OnlyFans in 2017 to get a bit of extra cash to help her daughter pay for her studies.
But when the pandemic hit, OnlyFans became Marcela's main source of income and she set herself a target to pay off her daughter's £46,000 ($63,000) student loans to ensure she doesn't finish university with piles of debt.
She said: "My focus has always been to better my daughter's life and provide her with the opportunities I didn't have growing up.
"In the US, Hispanic women are the lowest on the totem pole when it comes to income, so it's important for me to raise a well-educated child and give her the opportunities that I didn't have.
"Debt is so high here and I don't want her to have the burden of debts.
"My daughter is very independent and has always loved school and done a great job.
"I want her to feel free to study whatever she wants, and she expressed an interest in law school so I have to support that - plus it's always good to have a lawyer in the family."
Marcela previously worked as a stripper, but quit six years ago to start a 'vanilla' job.
However, she quickly realised it wasn't paying enough for a secure future and when the pandemic hit she was out of work for seven months.
With more time on her hands, Marcela was able to put more effort into her OnlyFans and now has subscribers paying $4.55 (£3.29) a month to see her content, or coughing up $100 (£72.30) for a 20 minute phone call.
"My content is mostly topless and I cater to a bilingual audience as I am fluent in Spanish," Marcela explained.
"I also cater to a large amount of fetish fans - they love everything from feet, pantyhose and being humiliated about their penis size.
"I also do video calls which I love the most as I really enjoy chatting with my fans.
"I have a lot of younger subscribers who like an older woman who is more confident, doesn't play games and will be direct with them.
"A lot of younger guys were lonely during the pandemic and couldn't date, and I was able to video chat with them and interact."
Although it's lucrative for Marcela, she says OnlyFans is not an easy option and involves a lot of hard work, but it's all worth it to help secure her daughter's future.
She added: "My daughter means so much to me and I would do anything in the world for her. She's a wonderful daughter and right now she's studying all the time and focusing on her goals.
"I've always made sure she had better than I had growing up and with that comes education.
"It's very important to me that she achieve her dreams."
