From 2017 to 2021, Roxie Roots made a fortune from pornography and pornography. She’s been active on OnlyFans for almost as long as the platform has existed. “That was the biggest mistake of my life,” she said today.
Roxie: Actually quite classic in terms of shape. I met a woman much younger than me. She told me that she does “glamor modeling,” which means she’s photographed naked or in her underwear. She made a lot of money that way.
So I thought why don’t you check it out? Anyone can sell their own photos online, the woman said. People like me – I looked quite alternative and androgynous back then – were popular and marketable. This came in handy for me as I lost my normal company job once again.
Roxie: Yeah, it’s my whole life. I clean, cook and work in customer service for large companies. I lived first in Ireland and then in the UK for five years. But none of my jobs lasted more than a year. I am a very unstable person.
Roxie: I’ve always felt out of place, different and not belonging. I know now that it was a result of the child sexual abuse I experienced. I was traumatized and lived on the fringes of society.
When I was on the verge of needing help again and asking my parents for money, the offer to sell my photos online was just what I needed. I want to avoid the stigma of not being able to show anything when I’m almost 30.
How much money were you told you will make from these photos?
Roxie: Yes, they say 50 pounds an hour. It sounded good at first. But of course I don’t know how often I’m booked. Or what I usually get myself into.
