OnlyFans stars make 270 times more than the average worker

The world’s oldest industry is also one of today’s better-paid ones.

Top creators on subscription service OnlyFans rake in hundreds of times more money than the average Brit who followed a more traditional career path, a new report has found.

MrQ, a UK-based gaming software website, crunched the numbers on the best paid OnlyFan users and compared their income to existing data regarding what more customary professionals also make: Those who make a name for themselves on the adult content platform, researchers found, bring in a far better income than those who stick to well-traveled job paths like doctors, lawyers and teachers.

The most popular OnlyFans user, gem101, makes over $29.4 million while the 10th most popular, capriceG92, rakes in $4.3 million annually.

To calculate these findings, researchers looked at creators’ subscription costs and subscriber numbers to calculate estimated monthly and annual incomes. The 20% cut that OnlyFans takes from its users was also factored into findings.

“Among the most popular accounts with listed subscribers, gem101 ranks as the highest earner, with an estimated [$29.4 million] in annual income, earning an eye-watering [$2.49 million] each month,” a release for the analysis stated. “This comes from a $29 subscription charge per month and 102,800 subscribers to the account.”

By comparison, after 20 years in the field, English doctors — the top paid industry — will only bring in an average income of $109,000. The second best-paid professionals, lawyers, never even hit an annual average take-home of six digits: After 20 plus years of work in the industry, their income average tops out at $90,000 annually.

“While boning up on hard subjects at university might earn a decent amount as doctors at the pinnacle of their career will earn an average of a little over [$109,000] annually (around [$9,152] a month), top models like gem101 earn more than 22 times as much in one month alone,” report authors wrote. “That’s nearly 270 times as much a year.”

And what average income workers take home looks even more meager in comparison.

“A marketing professional earns just [$55,391] while a teacher earns [$48,467] and a journalist earns [$52,620],” researchers offered in stark contrast.
