When times get tough, we sometimes need to do extra things on the side to boost our finances. Some people do a spot of freelancing, others opt to flog some form of juice diet all over Facebook (not annoying at all).
Sonia Pellizzari, however, decided to sell saucy pictures and videos which ended up costing her a job.
Pellizzari, 28, was a council office worker dealing with admin issues in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. She claimed that her salary was not enough and she had decided to boost it by selling online images and then later erotic videos.
The young woman said she had never made a secret of the fact that she used
her free time to make videos which helped to pay towards her student fees and rent.
Sonia started working for the local council in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires back in 2011 and had decided to move into modelling and making erotic videos in 2017.
She told local media: "I do not want to say how much I earn with the videos, but it is a lot. I use it for paying the rent and other things."
All of her colleagues apparently knew about what she was doing, but she was fired when the
saucy videos and pictures were made public.
She said she did not know who had posted the images, explaining: "Firstly, a video in which I was with a friend topless was leaked. We were naked but it was only a few seconds long. Then other videos appeared."
She admitted that the other videos included sex scenes, but insisted it was wrong of the council to fire her.
She also rejected suggestions that she was a prostitute, saying that all the men that she had sex with on the videos were also professionals who had signed up to be recorded and to share the footage that was taken.
Sonia added: "I am not embarrassed about the videos, my family has known about what I've been doing right from the start, and my work colleagues too. I never hid it. But when the managers heard and one of the videos went viral, they got annoyed about it."
However, council chiefs have denied that the decision to fire her was taken because of the nature of the videos she was making.
They said the problem was that her work at the council was suffering, alleging that she had taken too much time off work - an allegation which she rejects.
