Woman drops out of medical school after earning thousands of dollars a week selling her spit
| Last updated
A British medical student has quit her studies and shelved her job as she now makes thousands per week in a rather interesting career change.
Despite dreaming about graduating from university with the honorific title of 'doctor' added to her name, her life took a bit of a turn when she ran into money troubles.
She had £11,000 (£20,790, USD$13,585) in debt to clear, so she began selling excretions from her body to people online.
And she reckons it is way easier than getting your kit off on OnlyFans.
"It all started as a fluke, and now I've been doing it for four years," the 22-year-old said.
"I started doing OnlyFans, and through that, I got weird requests for shower water. I always knew it was a thing but didn’t know it was so easily accessible."
"I did a lot of research and dug deep into the industry to fulfil the unusual requests I get. I use sites that aren’t known or spoken about like OnlyFans."
But when she received the first-ever order for a jar of her own spit she realised there was more to the content-selling game than meets the eye.
"I thought it was a joke at first and that it couldn't be serious until I realised it was," she said.
"I agreed and asked for £300 ($AUD567). I couldn't believe how easy it was."
"It's much easier than OnlyFans and taking photos that's for sure."
And, in a moment that bore a striking resemblance to when ‘90s supermodel Linda Evangelista revealed she 'won't get out of bed for less than USD$10,000 (AUD$15,300, £8,000) a day', Jones added that she is a stone-cold hustler.
She has had people ask for bedsheets after she slept in them for a week, gym clothes that are really sweaty, bathwater, toothbrushes, and toothpaste spit.
"Anything you can think of, people want it," she said.
She has been taken by surprise with people asking for her spit.
"Spit is a popular one, and I will do them a few times a week. I don’t sell my spit for just £250 (AUD$472, $USD308). I gauge it by each customer - if I know they will pay a lot, I will charge more," she said.
"I do negotiate to some extent, but I don’t sell for less than £200 ($247).
"The most I have made from spit is £1,500 ($USD1,852, AUD$2,834). I knew the guy had money, and he was happy to pay it."
Jones has now been able to leave her supermarket job and university.
She's paid off her mother's debts, her own, and even purchased a new horse for a sister and lives a lavish life all thanks to a jar of spit.
She added: "I studied biomedical science and wanted to be a doctor - something I'd wanted to do for my whole life.
"I never thought this would be my career, but I'm happy that it is. I love it. The freedom it gives you and the money is a big thing for me, as I've never grown up with money.
"I never knew what it felt like to go out and buy whatever I wanted."
From requests alone, the 22-year-old now makes up to £5,000 (AUD$9,400) per week
However, there has been a slight downside to revealing to her mother how she's able to pay off people's debts.
"Everyone around me is really supportive. Everyone laughs about it. The only person I don’t speak to now because of my job is my mum. I've never had a good relationship with her anyway," she said.
"However, my boyfriend is really supportive and my twin sister loves it too.
"It’s a wild world out there.”
