Aussie OnlyFans star reveals the downside of becoming a porn creator

The trend of young women joining the subscription platform OnlyFans and creating X-rated content has taken off in Australia, but creator Maddie Miller has shared the downside.

Ms Miller, 19, earns roughly $2500 monthly from her successful OnlyFans but told news.com.au that being on the platform has made her grow up “too fast”.

“I feel like doing sex work definitely changed me straight away,” she said.

The Western Australian local said becoming a porn star from the comfort of her bedroom has come at a cost, and at a very young age, she’s stuck navigating some very adult realities.

“My downside to my OnlyFans has been two main things. I’ve lost family and friends and grown up too fast,” she said.

Miller started her OnlyFans when she was fresh out of high school and only 18 years old, but on reflection, she wished she’d waited.

“I personally felt like I was ready when I started at 18, but I recommend waiting until at least 19 or 20,” she said.

Ms Miller was always aware that creating an online profile would mean that explicit photos of her could end up on the internet forever, but she wasn’t prepared for how the people she knew would betray her.

Recently, she went on a camping trip with a bunch of mates, a rite of passage for any young person who wants to holiday with friends. However, when she arrived, someone in the group was a subscriber to her account and had been cruelly sharing the images around with others.

“It can be hard knowing the people you once knew as mates have been showing my porn to others as a joke behind my back,” she explained.

When those things happen, Ms Miller explained she tries to brush it off and remind herself that she’s still “getting paid”, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a cost.

Ultimately, even though she tries not to let these moments define her, she says it’s impossible to pretend they don’t change how people treat her.

“I’m not shy when it comes to showing my personality online but doing so has definitely had an impact on how I and others view me,” she said.

Ms Miller is part of the crew of women who were able to quit their jobs once their porn careers took off, but even that luxury isn’t always “fun”.

“I quit my full-time job thinking I would only be working a few hours a week. Now, my brain is focused on my work pretty much 24/7,” she said.

Ms Miller said once creating X-rated content becomes your career, it becomes just like any other job, and you have to become reliable and show up if you want to make money.

“Unfortunately, I will have days where I don’t have a choice other than to film – like most people have days they aren’t in the mood for going to work,” she said.
