How To Sell Nudes Online
Selling nudes online is a fantastic way to make an income. Here I have outlined the step-by-step process on how to get started.
1.Gather your equipment
When you’re starting out, you won’t need too much equipment. A phone with a good quality camera or digital camera. A ring light is a must, it really transforms the quality of your photos. A tripod is very useful for getting the best angles. And last but not least, a selection of sexy outfits. Below is the equipment I use and a selection of cute outfits.
2. Take a selection of pictures
You don’t have to take a ton of pictures initially, a selection of 20-30 pictures in different lingerie and poses is a great start. Take some nude and non-nude pics.
Non-nude pictures or lingerie pictures are great to use as profile pictures, posting to Twitter or Reddit. Nudes are best saved for PPVs or locked behind paywalls. You always want to save your most x-rated content for paying customers.
3. Pick a nickname
When entering the adult industry, it’s important to protect your real identity. You should pick a nickname that your customers I encourage you to pick a double barrel name. This helps guys to remember who you are. Below is a selection of username ideas:
4.Set up a Twitter account
Having a Twitter account is a popular way to promote your nude pictures. Make sure you set up a new Twitter account with your chosen nickname. You can post your lingerie pictures and use hashtags to attract new customers.
5. Sign up to platforms
There are plenty of platforms to sell your nudes. Below I have outlined the best sites to sell your nude pictures and how much percentage each platform pays. I recommend that you pick at least 2-3 platforms to sell nudes (or more if you can handle it). The more platforms you use, the more potential customers can see your services.
Where To Sell Nudes Online
Onlyfans is undoubtedly the most popular place to sell your nudes online. In the last 2 years, Onlyfans has become a household name for adult content. Women just like me and you can build a stable and pretty large income.
I joined Onlyfans many years ago (before it became popular in 2020) and I’ve gradually built up a steady following and income.
However, starting an Onlyfans isn’t as easy as it looks. Many newcomers think it’s as easy as slipping off a bit of clothing, taking some hot selfies and posting them, only for flocks of horny men to pay them. I wish 😅
Starting an Onlyfans is no different to starting a business. You have to pick a niche or brand that sets you aside from the 100,000 other models. Then you have to create good quality content, a mixture of pictures and videos (long or short videos). You have to think about sending PPV mails, how much you’ll charge and what services you’re going to offer.
And most importantly, you have to promote your Onlyfans. The platform has zero on-site traffic, so your marketing is fully in your hands. Many models use Reddit, TikTok and Twitter to promote their Onlyfans.
If you’re willing to take it somewhat seriously and put in the effort, there’s no reason why you cannot earn a four or even five-figure monthly income.
Manyvids is another great platform for selling nudes. And what’s even better, Manyvids does have on-site traffic, so the pressures of marketing are taken off your shoulders.
Manyvids is an adult video platform. The main focus of this platform is to sell video content. So if you’re only up for selling pictures, you may want to give Manyvids a miss.
The platform offers so many ways to make money, from video sales to live camming to fan page sales. They offer reasonable and fast payouts and getting verified on Manyvids is far easier than Onlyfans.
With regular weekly video uploads and picking some great niches, you can earn such a great regular income from this platform (which has tons of traffic).
LoyalFans has become a very popular platform. Although it’s mainly aimed at dommes or findoms. It still has a place for those who want to sell nudes.
LoyalFans also has its own on-site traffic, although it’s not as popular as the other two platforms.
LoyalFans has many ways to make money. Its main function is to run a fan page subscription, where you can sell pictures and/or video content. You can charge for DM chats and you can also sell custom clips.
Iwantclips is a very busy platform, with the best on-site traffic. However, Iwantclips’ audience seems to be more into Fetish or Femdom content. Iwantclips has never been a platform I’ve had to promote, to get an influx of sales.
Although I am a domme and my content is very suited to the platform.
On Iwantclips you can mostly earn money via selling video content, custom videos, selling pictures, PTV mails and phone calls.
If you are new and creating fetish or femdom content, this is a great place to start.
How Much Can You Make Selling Nudes Online?
You can make very good money selling nudes online, the amount you will earn will depend on how much effort you put into it and which platforms you choose. The average monthly earnings for a woman selling nudes is $1000 per month. This is based on picture content only, if you decide to sell nude videos, this amount will increase drastically.
If you are prepared to film video content, then your earning potential is unlimited. Video content sells extremely well and is a great passive income. If you choose to accept paid custom video requests, this will also drastically increase your earning potential.
Since 2020 selling nudes online, become popular overnight. So the competition is pretty high, but don’t let that put you off. It just means that you have to make yourself stand out from the crowd. You can do that by specializing in a niche, this could be a particular fetish or two.
How To Sell Nudes on Snapchat
Selling nudes on Snapchat is a good approach for those who just want a side hustle kinda money. There is less pressure with this approach and less work to do, as you would only need your phone and that’s it.
The best way to sell nudes on Snapchat is to have a free Snapchat and a paid Snapchat account. For the free account, you’ll post non-nude and sexy content, but not nudes. This is the account that you will use to promote your paid and exclusive Snapchat. This way, guys can get a sneak peek into what you have to offer.
For your paid account, you can choose what you charge. Some models charge a monthly fee (although it’s harder to keep on top of that) and others charge a one-off fee. This account is where you can post your nudes, chat with subscribers and offer paid sexting sessions.
I’d recommend that you don’t chat with guys on your free account, you would exhaust yourself daily just talking to potential freeloaders. Save that for your paid account as an incentive to join.
Sell Nudes on Reddit
Reddit has become a very popular place to promote nudes. With a huge NSFW community, you certainly won’t have any trouble finding new guys.
What is great about Reddit is they have a ton of subreddits for different NSFW niches. I’ve been using NSFW subreddits for years, here’s how to get new guys.
1. Set up your Reddit profile
Add a profile picture and write a small bio, including what kind of niches you cover or some details about your content. You can also add your links below this, links to your platforms and Twitter.
2. Join subreddits
Now it’s time to join some subreddits. You can type in keywords that apply to you, like “tattoo” “blonde” “BBW”. You can then find all the subreddits that relate to you and your image. Below I’ve listed some popular Snapchat subreddits to get you started.
3. Start posting regularly
Posting to all of your subreddits regularly is the key to success. If you have chosen to have a free and paid Snapchat account, you can freely promote your free Snapchat handle. Once those guys are on that account, you can then encourage them to pay for your paid NSFW one.
I recommend posting 3 times per week across all of your chosen subreddits, to keep a good inflow of new guys.
I use Social Rise to schedule my Reddit posts. It saves me having to remember to post as this will automatically send my posts to my chosen subreddit.
Stay Safe Selling Nudes
It’s really important to keep some privacy when selling nudes online. You should never reveal your real name to any guys. While most guys are pretty safe, you never truly know someone (even if they seem so sweet). You should use a stage name or some other name to go by.
You should also never share your direct location or city. It’s best to be pretty vague when telling guys where you’re from.
Ideally, it’s best to keep your personal life completely separate from your work. Try not to go live in a city or place that could be recognizable. The more guys know about you, the more you are at risk.
As I said, 99% of guys are fine, but we never truly know who the creeps are and some guys can be pretty deranged.
Selling Nudes Tips
Don’t get fooled by guys who ask for things and promise payment afterwards, they are out to scam you and they will never send the payment.
Never accept PayPal for your services, not only does PayPal not allow NSFW transactions and will close your account. It’s very easy for a guy to pay you and then reverse the payment after he has your goods.
Always keep payments to CashApp or use one of the platforms recommended in this article.
Instead of “just selling nudes”, ensure that you pick your own niche and uniques. Perhaps you are a BBW model with tattoos. These things will be your selling point. Or perhaps you will decide to specialize in a particular fetish. It’s best to set yourself aside from the rest.
There are so many women online selling nudes, that it’s really difficult for guys to find you if you don’t cater to a specific audience.
I used to specialize in the smoking fetish and, despite it being a smaller audience, I made far more money from this fetish than I did from “general nudity”. The content I created would always sell and I made sure to put myself on the platforms where this content is popular, like Iwantclips and Manyvids.
And lastly, never do things you’re not comfortable with just for money. Believe me, it’ll never be worth it and you will end up regretting it. Set your limits and don’t stretch them, despite how much a guy might talk you into doing it.
Being a non-nude in the adult industry is a thing. I’m currently a non-nude model and a domme. Most dommes or findoms are non-nude, it’s a known thing.
But even vanilla models can be non-nude. Not all guys are interested in a sexual experience with you. Plenty of guys really enjoy “the girlfriend experience” and will pay lots of money to talk to you.
Non-nude models will usually wear seductive lingerie, they still offer the element of tease and seduction, without actually showing their nudity bits 😬.
With the Internet being influxed with nudes everywhere you turn, it’s quite refreshing to see a non-nude model. Guys just like a beautiful woman to talk to, flirt with and build a friendship with. You should still charge them for your time, despite not being non-nude.
I personally made incredible money being non-nude. In fact, I make more money non-nude than I did nude. Not sure what that says about my lady bits 😂. Jokes aside, I believe this is because I am pretty good at teasing and seduction. I get paid enough money to not have to get nude. This was my experience as a vanilla model. As a domme, it’s just normal to be non-nude.
If you do choose this road, you should either become a dominatrix or “the girlfriend experience”, otherwise known as GFE. These are the two niches that attract a male audience who likes a non-nude model.
