A week in the life of an Australian OnlyFans creator

“I always forget how tiring and time consuming it is taking content.”

Earlier this year, the Sex Work Decriminalisation Act was passed by the Victorian Parliament and became law. These news laws recognise sex work as a legitimate line of work and make room for industry-wide regulations. And work it is.

With an ever-increasing number of people entering the sex work industry through websites like OnlyFans, a site that allows sex workers to create content and earn money through digital means, competition is fierce. But what is actually involved in OnlyFans content creation? To find out, I asked full-time OnlyFans creator, lash technician and entrepreneur, Priscilla Martin, to spill the tea on what she gets up to in a typical week.

Day one, Tuesday

8.30am

Woke up and checked my socials, replied to messages and checked my content plans for the week. I’m working on content for an agency that is trying to scout me to run my OnlyFans and social media (they take a percentage of the income). I partied on the weekend and have so much to catch up on.

10am

Quickly run to the lash salon where I work to do a client. I’m hungry but will worry about that on the way home.

12pm

Grabbed a ham and cheese croissant from Gloria Jeans on my way to do more admin at home, where I did my make up and listened to some tunes to get the vibes up. Made a mental note to post a picture on my Instagram story later. Was meant to go shopping with my dad but will delay that for another day.

2pm

Checked what was trending on TikTok and created three videos. Also made three drafts which I’ll save for later tonight or on a rainy day. Social media/content creation is a big part of building my brand and promoting my OnlyFans. When I make TikToks I have to constantly save the video and exit to find the best hashtags, because I always forget while writing a caption. At this point in the day, I’m already drained.

4pm

Decided to go to the gym with my bestie, Christian, in an attempt to make me feel as though I’ve done something productive today. When I arrived at her house, I got her to take some photos of me that I will post on Instagram, plus some content for this week’s reels and TikToks. We smashed out a good gym session for an hour – I want to love the gym but sadly, I really hate it. I persist as I really want my ass to grow.

8pm

Ordered and picked up Domino’s – I got garlic bread and a classic-crust pizza. Thought about getting a deep-dish base but can never trust that it’s made with love. 

9pm

Took some sexy, winter-themed content in my spare room/walk-in wardrobe, wearing a white lingerie set with a Playboy jumper. I then checked over them and told my employees that I’ll have them ready to go for later this week – my employees are people I pay to chat and interact with subscribers on my OnlyFans, as I don’t always have the time. I hope to make at least $200 to $500 just for these few photos. 

Day two, Wednesday

8am

Woke up and peeped out the window to see it was a cloudy, gloomy day. I always just want to sleep all day when the weather is like this, but I remembered what my dad always says: “Just shower, get up and wash your face and brush your teeth to wake up”.

So I drag myself out of bed and do just that. I also fill up my cat’s food and water bowl and check the litter. I have to shoot some content today for brands including my OnlyFans. It sometimes gets overwhelming because even one day’s worth of content might only last a week and the week goes by so quickly.

9am

Lately, my work seems to be taking a mental toll on me, especially after some recent personal events which have been heartbreaking. I’m usually the type to hustle when I’m feeling sad and turn that sadness into money, so I downloaded the app Bloom and decided it’s time to put effort into my mental health again. I did some activities on the app such as a daily check-in (emotions), daily quotes (I’m a sucker for affirmations) and trying to calm my anxiety. 

10am

I finally worked up the effort to go to the gym.

1.30pm

I showered, brushed my hair, and had three packages at home waiting for me to open, including one big one which always makes me excited. This one was from a vape company, that sent me some vapes in a cute little box with a card – I can’t even get a boy to put in this kind of effort.

I was also sent a plumping lip gloss from Lekiki cosmetics which I’m so excited to try (lip injections/fillers have given me so much PTSD). I posted it with a boomy song and will later take a feed photo to post on my next content day.

4pm

Did a few lash clients at my home salon. I love working on my beauty side of things, as it always re-grounds me and gives me a break from content creation and OnlyFans.

9pm

Had a quick oven pizza meal – my favourite is the Aldi meat lovers, which is basically a dupe for McCain’s. My mind is still in work mode since I finished late, so I decided to use this to my advantage and took some new content for my lash, beauty and cosmetic supplies website.

I took some photos of my new heart mirrors and glue stones, as well as some videos that I will use as reel content on my beauty Instagram. I also had to post a promo photo for an event company, promoting a DJ event for this Saturday.

Day three, Thursday

9am

Slept through my alarm but I clearly must have needed the sleep. This week has been very on-the-go so I’m feeling pretty drained and weak. I rush and get ready for work at the salon – working from the shop means I have to dress 100 per cent professionally, so I can’t just wear basic, comfy clothes. A cute gym outfit will do though, right?

10am

I work with clients doing their lashes and brows, including a set I did using my own brand’s lashes, which are sold on my online store.

4pm

I go home and have a quick beauty (pre-turn-up) nap.

6pm

I start getting ready for dinner with the girls at Mr Chicka, starting with a shower and a face scrub. I haven’t been bothered to tan this week, so a long-sleeve outfit is a MUST. I split my routine by straightening only half my hair, and then continuing with makeup before finishing the rest of my hair. This makes me feel as though time is going quicker.

I start my makeup with brows – as long as they’re sleek and outlined, my whole face will look amazing, trust me. I always leave picking an outfit to last. I like to think I’m known for having a good fashion sense, but last-minute decisions don’t always make for the most amazing outfit choices.

8pm

My friends Taylor and Angela have finally arrived. After screwing around for 45 minutes, I’ve now had two outfit changes, taken photos, asked my friends for their thoughts and put my final outfit on with an extra straightening of my hair. I love girls’ nights and getting dressed up, having a few cocktails (my fave) and of course, getting some content too.

11pm

Dinner has inevitably led to a dance at the club, but how could we not, right? The Brisbane clubs on a Thursday are pretty boring, but with the right company and vibes any place can be fun. I had a double shot vodka OJ.

Day four, Friday

7.30am

Time to wake up! I do my daily mindfulness routine on the Bloom app and have a shower, preparing for my personal training session at the gym (after last night’s antics, I’m going to die).

9.30am

I’m a bit late to the gym session as usual. It was a hard, quick session, but I’m grateful for my friend and trainer, Amber, who pushes me whether I love it or not. We laughed together as I could barely walk down the stairs leaving the gym afterwards. I’m going to be so sore tomorrow.

12pm

I’ve finished a lash client at my home salon and am waiting for my friend, Takita, to come over so we can swap services and do each other’s lashes. She’s almost a student of mine as I also teach lashing. I use my brand’s product on both of us. I love getting my own lashes done, it’s so relaxing on a day where I don’t have much on – if I’ve been lashing all day, getting my own lashes done and laying down is the last thing I want to do!

7.30pm

We are finally done. This time I got cute, gold sparkle spikes and playboy bunny decals in my lashes (my OnlyFans subs will love this). After the emotional week I’ve had, we decided to run to KFC and also stopped by The Bottle-O to get my favourite white wine from Brown Brothers.

8.30pm

We then start our makeup and head to our local pub for a few cocktails and a dance. I rushed and wore something super casual and comfy again – still no fake tan so my body was mostly covered (I don’t know why I do this to myself). At least I was warm with the cold weather. And of course, it’s always when you want to stay lowkey and have a casual night that you bump into everyone you know and have a big one.

Day five, Saturday

9am

Finally got home and I’m so hungover. I’ll definitely be spending all day in bed watching Netflix.

3pm

Deciding it was time to get up and function, I posted a few TikToks and checked my socials, doing my regular Instagram feed scroll. I was heavily contemplating partying again tonight – I had to fulfil a promo for a brand and always have a good time with my friends and some good music.

6pm

I ended up going out for a bit and filmed a few TikToks that I put in my drafts for later in the week. I try to aim for seven a week and also aim for content I can post on reels as well. I log onto my OnlyFans to check that my employees (chatters) are making sales and chatting to my fans. 

Day six, Sunday

9am

It’s Mother’s Day. I love buying people presents, especially for my mummy! I got her a customised hard-copy cartoon book of us with poems. We both were a bit teary, but I’m so glad she liked it. 

1pm

Mum and I went to the local fish and chip shop that we love at the moment. In my opinion, the quality of fish and chips is all in the chip quality and fish batter. I spent the afternoon working on my content plan for the week, with my next content day starting tomorrow.

3pm

I spent the rest of the day scheduling meetings with my OnlyFans chatters. These meetings involve discussing targets, content ideas and content strategies. We also discuss which times my fans are most active, and look at client/fan analysis.

Day seven, Monday

7.30am

Woke up early to do morning meditation to try and smooth my mind and prepare for a new week.

9.30am

I finally get up and drive to get a ham and cheese croissant, before heading back home to straighten my hair. I always feel like when my hair is straightened I get more content done or I’m more willing to take stories or content – I don’t know why.

11.30am

I head to the gym with Christian where we train legs and a bit of arms – she tries to get me to do more but honestly, I’m more focused on building my ass. We smash out a good 1.5-hour session and finish it off with a photo because, well, pic or it didn’t happen. We then go into the exercise studio and film a few TikToks, one of which I posted and has seemed to pop off in the last 24 hours.

2.30pm

I finally arrive home with my car music blasting – I always love listening to some Megan Thee Stallion and other boss-bitch playlists to hype myself up for taking more content. I tried to remind myself that if I get it done now then at least I’ll have the rest of the week to relax.

3pm

I have a shower and it’s such cold rainy weather outside that I just want to jump into bed. If I get a bit of content done then at least I can relax later. I opened up my notes where I keep some content ideas and layout my walk-in wardrobe to film.

My mum used to make curtains (she’s a master at everything really), so she put curtain tracks on the roof for me to do regular shoots with different backdrops. Today I’m doing a lolly wonderland type theme, with lollipops I’ve made up with prints, straws and a candy-coloured, psychedelic backdrop. I use my clear chair as a prop – even the smallest of things can make a pic seem more than what it is. 

5pm

I always forget how tiring and time consuming it is taking content. I also filmed a cake promo for a brand to post tomorrow on my story.

7.30pm

Had a relaxing bath and used the bubbles to cover my boobs and take some pictures. The best way to make money on OnlyFans is to take photos of your daily life but make it cheeky. 

8.30pm

I’m tucked up in bed, have written my to-do list for tomorrow in my notes and it’s time to get my beauty sleep.
