Opinions on onlyfans and adult entertainment industry

I have been a dancer in Dublin for a decade started in my early 20s a lot of the girls I work with are sound and believe me it’s definitely nothing you see on tv. However Ireland seems to have this negative attitude towards women in this industry or deems us all sex addicts or easy when the woman who gets bread in her local supermarket could be doing all kinds of dirty things that’s way worse than dancing and it seems to be okay because she’s doing it for free I don’t get the mindset of some of these people we have stage names in work to protect our identity.

Part of this job comes with a lot of stigma there’s been a few girls who had people find out their day jobs and contact their boss to try and get them fired it’s normally women who rat them out and try to ruin their lives over it. There’s nothing I’d love more than to be open about my job and how it’s helped me get through some dark times in my life but I just couldn’t handle all the derogatory labels and insults and lows people will go to try and ruin your life over it. Since covid hit I don’t know how the strip club industry in Dublin is going to survive.

I want to know what your opinions are on strippers and the likes of using onlyfans to make money nothing you say is going to bother me it’s more curios why people have a begrudging attitude towards these things when they do worse things for free with their husbands boyfriend or a random Jack the lad from coppers In Dublin on a night out.

I've no problem with it or anything else that falls under the umbrella of sex work.

Others will have issues from a moral or religious point of view, will see it as seedy or perverted etc.

As long as it's safe, and no one is exploited, it should be up to the women and audience to decide if they participate or not.

I wouldn't wan't a family member or someone I'm close to putting up material online on the likes of OnlyFans. For me the risk is if they decide after a short spell that it wasn't for them, the images would still be circulated and could come back years or decades down the line.

But each to their own, there's worse things you could be doing so I certainly wouldn't demonise anyone who does it.

People are free to do whatever they want. If that's how women want to make money then all power to them.

However, I wouldn't want my daughter doing it. I wouldn't want my partner doing it. If I went on a date with someone and they were on onlyfans then I wouldn't be taking it any further. If I was with a partner and they started doing it I don't think there'd be a future for us.

Those pictures and videos, once out there, will never go away.

Do you dance in front of married men? Or only single guys?

If it were single guys or the married guys wives knew and were fine ..i would have no issue with it.

My young fella makes a fortune on it.
I've given up work myself to manage his social media, some awful weirdos out there but sure it keeps him in designer threads and pays the pcp on the cars

People should mind their own business. Wouldn't bother me, if you can make money and then it's up to you.

Can't see why anyone would judge rather then the men paying for it. Not saying that they should be judged either but can never understand why it's those providing the service that have to endure the stigma.

Entirely down to personal choice, if that's how you want to make money. I'd be heartbroken if my daughter went down this route, and I can't pretend otherwise. One note of caution, If a few years down the line you'd rather photos or videos of yourself weren't there, it's virtually impossible to stop them and they're there for all to see in perpetuity. You'll be playing whack a mole (innuendo in there in this context?) with takedown requests on a hundred a one porn sites forever, and for every 10 people paying, there's probably hundreds who aren't.

Yes I agree with the rude content on onlyfans using toys and such that is out there forever but a lot of girls use it for underwear posts not nude just the type of photos every girl posts on Instagram lately. Most lads I talk to are okay with their girl doing it just not posting nudes and talking dirty to strange dudes every night sending him videos. I don’t think that’s fair on the boyfriend then again if he trusts the girl and accepts that it’s her job then it shouldn’t bother him because she’s still the same girl to him.

Wouldn't really bother me if my daughter worked as a stripper. Once it was what she wanted to do.

It's not really any of my business.

If i had a daughter...and it was safe ...and she only allowed single men to be her clients ....i would have no issue and be proud of her.

If she took money from married men who had wives who didn't know. I would feel a failure. Because i would feel i failed to teach her empathy.

If she was just doing porn..i would be much happier its safer ..and i don't have an issue with married men looking at porn videos.

But i would want her to be safe and happy and healthy. Not all parts of the industry are like that. Not people would be ok in that industry.

My grandmother worked as a prostitute ...but she was coming form homelessness....she didnt have the greatest opinion of some of the people she met ..both men and women.

But I agree the stigma needs to be taken away.

I think women fear that the whole industry undermines them. They feel afraid it encourages toxic masculinity and ignores consent. I mean in porn films you never see condoms or consent. Its all about men etc. I think women who work in the industry and those who dont need to come together to establish more power for women.

Exactly. She knows its likely many are.

And i am certain a lot of clients have even told her. And told her the wife doesn't know.
