Why Demi Rose decided to create the hottest OnlyFans account around
When it comes to content Rose is looking to create on the new platform, it will be more on the lines of what celebrities like Cardi B, Jordyn Woods and Tyga have focused on
Demi Rose has been posting seductive and drool-worthy pictures of herself on her Instagram for years, but only recently decided to join the subscription-based service OnlyFans -- which has shot to fame for its collection of adult content -- as she wanted an increased control over the content she wanted to create.
The British model recently opened up in an interview with Radio 1 Newsbeat about joining the fast-growing platform. The model said the main issue with posting photos on Instagram was monetizing her posts, despite having done sponsored posts for some big online fashion retailers.
"I've been posting online for years and most of my shots are free, some are paid collaborations but I haven't been able to monetize it properly," she said.
When did she decide to join OnlyFans?
Rose said that her decision to join OnlyFans was not a sudden one. It only happened after she was approached a number of times with several offers. Although OnlyFans boasts of having an array of content creators ranging from fitness coaches to beauty bloggers, the site has become notorious for adult content and porn. Even then, the exclusivity of the content, which can only be accessed by a subscription fee, made it one of the fastest-growing websites during the pandemic, according to Regulator Ofcom's 2020 media report. So much so that the platform experienced a 75 percent increase in new creators in May last year.
However, even with its popularity and global recognition, the platform was seen as a taboo in the United Kingdom. "There's always been a stigma in the UK," Rose said. "I was always cautious about joining, but I've been watching more creators and artists joining and I was like, 'OK wow it's becoming more accepted.'"
Kind of content Rose wants to create on OnlyFans
When it comes to the content Rose is looking to create on the platform, it will be more on the lines of what Cardi B, Jordyn Woods and Tyga have focused on, which is mostly behind-the-scenes images of photoshoots or backstage footage.
Adding that her OnlyFans posts will be different from her other social media accounts, she gave a glimpse of what it could potentially include. She said that she could post videos of her cooking, or playing her instruments in her underwear. Incidentally, she has become interested in learning the harp. Most of all, Rose is simply glad that she is finally getting to fully have control over the kind of content she creates in the future.
"I'm finally taking more creative control and being artistic, I'm finding my shoots fun and they [the subscribers] are happy with what I'm putting on there," she added. "It makes me feel empowered".
