There seems to be an influx of celebrities turning to the subscription-based adult content site, OnlyFans, as quarantine continues for another month.
The newest to join is Jordyn Woods, who used to be Kylie Jenner’s best friend until Woods made headlines for getting involved with NBA player Tristan Thompson, who is Khloe Kardashian’s on-and-off boyfriend and the father of her daughter, True.
For a monthly fee of $20, fans can access the 23-year-old’s page. But she’s made it clear that she’s not joining the site to take away income from sex workers — which was an accusation that former Disney star Bella Thorne dealt with back in late August.
“[I’m] not coming on there to take away from anything that [sex workers or anyone on the platform] already built,” Woods told Complex. “I just felt like the bigger picture is that it can be a space for people to be on there, to not be judged, and to be authentic to ourselves.”
Woods also added that she grew up being ashamed of her curvy body and being dubbed “provocative” for wearing shorts and a tank top on a summer day in Los Angeles when no one would ever say the same thing to a “skinny girl.”
Woods also announced that she’s partnered up with photographer Steven Gomillion for her OnlyFans posts.
“We’re creating art on here; we’re not posting just random selfies,” Woods told Complex. “There’s going to be really edgy, iconic photos of me on there, and it felt like OnlyFans was the right platform to launch this project because it’s completely different than anything that I’ve ever done.”
Thorne received backlash after being accused of “scamming” her subscribers on the platform and threatening the livelihood of sex workers who depend on OnlyFans for income. Even with Woods’ prior scandal in the press, she didn’t seem too concerned about what people will say about her joining the site.
“I knew that because of everything I’ve gone through, I knew it could be very controversial and I could avoid the controversy. But to me, it’s about the bigger picture and the opportunity that I see is there,” she added. “I bet it’s going to be shocking to people, but when they understand the bigger picture, I think it’ll all make sense.”
