MAFS star Jessika Power joins OnlyFans, slams 'quick buck' trolls
Blonde Aussie beauty Jessika Power responded to critics who accused her of trying to make a quick buck by joining the app in an Instagram video
Married at First Sight Australia's Jessika Power has shot back at her critics after she announced last week she would be joining the adult content subscription service OnlyFans.
The 29-year-old reality TV star took to Instagram on Sunday night, August 29, to share a post from The Wash, which explained how it had become normal for explicit content to be shared on a variety of social media platforms. This comes just days after OnlyFans decided to reverse its ban on pornographic content following a backlash.
The blonde beauty shared a video on Instagram responding to fans who had allegedly accused her of trying to make a quick buck by joining the app. “Honestly we’re all living behind the times,” she wrote in the caption. “Comment what you will on this post, just know that IDGAF because I’m doing what any confident, beautiful female would do in this day and age.”
"Literally all I'm doing is what any sane girl in this day and time would do," Jessika explained in the video. "I'm gonna be removing all of my lingerie photos from my Instagram... not saying it's just going to be lingerie," she added with a smirk. "If you follow the swipe-up links in this Instagram there might be a bit of fun content for you to follow in the future."
Jessika, who also starred in Big Brother VIP, insisted that she was using her OnlyFans to share content that she felt comfortable with. “I know everyone is going to have an adverse opinion on this and I never thought I’d see myself on this app, but if I can create a better life for myself and my family through an app, why the HELL wouldn’t I?!” she wrote. “Ladies and men please know from me to you, that you should never feel ashamed, embarrassed, or guilty for sharing yourself on any app. It’s your body, it’s your mind and it’s your life - do with it what you want.”
It's worth noting that Jessika, who is charging $25 per month for members-only content on her page, is one of several former MAFS participants who have already joined the controversial platform. Season 8 star Alana Lister signed up last month and asked fans $20 a month for exclusive access to her content. Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 30-year-old reality TV star said she decided to join OnlyFans after getting "sick of the Karens" trying to dictate what she could and couldn't post on her public social media accounts. “People have a problem with anything I do either way. Women should be allowed to feel sexy,” Lister said.
Meanwhile, a number of MAFS contestants from season 7 have also reportedly joined the subscription service. Mishel Karen charges $14.99 a month for her exclusive content, while Hayley Vernon, who charges $15, claims that she is in the top 0.4% of creators worldwide. In July, Michael Goonan teased that he and his fitness model girlfriend Cheyenne Donaghey were also contemplating joining the website.
