Student Quits Job After Making £15k In Two Weeks On OnlyFans
A student who says she was called a 'whore' for setting up an OnlyFans account has had the last laugh after raking in a whopping £15,000 in just two weeks, meaning she has been able to quit her job.
Lenny Holmes, 21, says she signed up to OnlyFans to sell nude photos - fast forward two weeks and she's now got 1,500 subscribers, all paying a tenner a month.
The cash has meant Lenny, a second-year journalism student, has been able to quit her 30-hour a week job as a retail assistant at Victoria's Secret and she plans to move out of her student digs into a one-bed apartment in Leeds. She's also been able to pay off some debts and is planning a dream trip to America.
But it hasn't all been plain sailing for Lenny, who says she's been sent some vile abuse from keyboard warriors who have branded her a 'slag' and even sent death threats for choosing to sell nude photos of herself.
Lenny said: "Strangers on the internet are the worst, and people can say nasty things. I have had really brutal messages including death threats from random trolls.
"People have called me a whore and a slag and told me I'm not intelligent. I've been told to get some GCSEs and do something with my life, but people don't realise I have those and I'm at university.
"They are the same people who watch porn every weekend - they just don't like what I do because they have to pay."
Lenny's subscribers pay a monthly fee but can also pay between £20 and £100 to receive private photos and videos.
The photos she shares include lingerie and naked shots - and have differing prices.
Lenny said: "I don't have a partner and if I met someone I'd hope they weren't bothered by it, but that's on them.
"I don't see it going anywhere long term, it's not a career prospect for me but it's fun for now.
"I was already posting lingerie photos on Twitter and people were telling me I could make so much money.

Although she's quit her 30-hours-a-week job, Lenny says filming and posting content is almost as much work as a full-time job - however, it fits around lectures and studying better.
Despite the online backlash, Lenny says the money she earns isn't 'dirty' and her parents approve of what she's doing.
She said: "It feels great to take my own assets and monetise them.
"I always had a job at university so I've never been really skint, but I could definitely have done with a bit more to be able to do what I wanted with my life.
"Now, I have hundreds of girls asking for advice and I just tell them they need a thick skin.
"You can't accept s*** from people but for every negative comment, you get 10 positive ones.
"My parents are really on side. As long as I don't feel pressured into doing anything I don't want to do, then they're fine with it."
