Nude photographs are everywhere, and people love them. Every day, social media models entice us with suggestive images, while platforms like OnlyFans make it very easy to sell nudes and capitalize on that thirst.
You’ll find no shortage of popular content creators like Corinna Kopf, Amouranth, or Alinity; vloggers like Stepanka, Annalise Mishler, and Tara Babcock; and celebrities like Bella Thorne, and Tana Mongeau, or porn stars like Mia Khalifa expanding their fortunes via OnlyFans accounts.
However, nowadays people from all walks of life can earn on the platform, or similar ones (such as ManyVids).
In fact, doing so is easier than you think, and you can smoothly slip into the party, show off some skin, and make money rain. To help you with that, let’s shed some light on how to sell nudes online.
This article will cover:
- The equipment you’ll need to take nudes

- How to take nudes that sell
- Where to sell nudes online

To Sell Nudes, You’ll Need Some Equipment
As you might imagine, you can only sell nudes after making them, and for that, you’ll need a camera. No matter what different industry veterans might consider essential, the reality is that everything aside from it (and your sex appeal) is optional.
Also, a camera will be useful if you’re considering other ways of earning within the porn industry. Examples include making money on Pornhub, earning on Chaturbate, or becoming a cam girl on any other platform.
So, what’s the first thing you should consider about buying a camera? For starters, you should figure out whether you need one to begin with, as your phone just might be good enough.
Modern phone cameras have an excellent price-to-quality ratio. This makes them the most commonly-used piece of equipment in the nudes business.
In addition, because they include smart features that automatically adjust your images, they are extremely convenient. You won’t need any photo editing experience; just snap a shot, and the software will make the photo look good.
And if you happen to want to do some photo editing, plenty of apps are widely available on the Google Play store and App Store.
DSLRs, or digital single-lens reflex cameras, are notably more expensive than most cameras on the market. These bad boys sport higher-quality hardware than their smartphone counterparts, so if you’re looking for the absolute best image quality, get one.
Cameras are like kinks — everyone is different — so we won’t tell you which specific DSLR will hit your sweet spot.
Instead, we suggest that you head over to Camera Decision. Their on-site toys will help you pick the one that’ll send you (and your audience) over the edge.
However, before swiping that credit card, you should know that DSLRs aren’t entirely plug-and-play.
To get the most out of one and properly capture yourself, you’ll need some photography knowledge and skills. For help with that, check out this beginner’s guide.
If you don’t feel like learning photography, consider getting someone you trust and feel comfortable around to take your photos. In fact, you may want to do so even if you’re familiar with the art.
DSLRs don’t do as much processing and auto-adjustment as smartphones. So, having someone dynamically tweak the ISO, zoom, and focus will bring your nudes to the next level.
All in all, a DSLR is not for everyone, but if you can make use of its full potential, your nudes will be right up there with the best.
You can take a thousand photos of yourself, but if they don’t show off your goods, no one will be interested in buying them. To ensure that all your features shine through to your customers, you should invest in lighting.
You have plenty of options, but we heartily recommend ring lights. They’re relatively cheap (around $20 on Amazon), and will ensure that no one misses your best features.
Sexy Lingerie & Outfits
Like the missionary position, plain old nudes will never go out of style. However, once you take a hundred, the 101st one won’t be that interesting to your customers.
To spice things up and keep them coming back, consider buying some sexy lingerie, sex toys, or just props. The more options you have, the more interesting photos you’ll be able to take.
If you’re on a budget, you can create an Amazon wishlist and publicly share it on your profile on your sales platform of choice (covered below). You can bet your nips that there’ll be fans willing to part with a few bucks to see you in a specific outfit.
And you should never say no to free gifts, especially when they can lead to additional earnings.
Also, you could offer these (somewhat) clothed photos for free, instead of selling them. It’ll be a way to entice potential customers into becoming paying clients, but we’ll cover that later.
Think of Polaroids as premature ejaculators among cameras. They use a special type of instant film that develops photos seconds after they are taken.
While this is a lot costlier than a digital solution in the long run, these authentic physical images also fetch high prices on websites like Etsy.
So, a Polaroid is for you if you wish to sell nudes as personalized, physical goods to a select clientele. It’ll make the process much easier, entirely removing the film development or photo printing steps.
As a downside, you obviously won’t be able to touch these pics up in Photoshop or similar software. However, for many, that won’t necessarily be bad.
Namely, Polaroids give a retro feel to the images they produce, which some prefer over cleaner, modern solutions. Many find that the grainier pictures remind them of better, simpler times, and may even be interested in their digital versions.
Therefore, you can have your polaroids scanned, and also offer those scans for sale. Vintage fans will appreciate them, and you’ll make even more money.
Shaking is only good with orgasms. If you’re having trouble keeping your camera stable, a tripod will be your photographic viagra.
These aren’t entirely necessary, but having one would allow a lot of variety for your pics, while increasing their quality. Even better, they’re rather accessible.
These aren’t condoms, so make sure to check if a tripod will fit your camera’s model and brand before clicking buy.
If you’ll be using a phone camera, though, that’ll be easy, as most of them are one-size-fits-all. DSLR and Polaroid cameras, on the other hand, might have special mounting mechanisms.
Types of Nudes That You Can Sell Online
Believe it or not, people who buy nudes don’t just want to see you flashing your tits or spreading that WAP. This gig is equal parts erotica and art, and there’s a fair bit of stuff going on under the hood.
For starters, there are several types of pics that you can take and offer, based on content and format. We’ll elaborate on them below, and we suggest experimenting to find what works for you and your audience.
Selfies are the easiest and most common type of nude photo that you can take and sell. They’re the biz’s bread and butter, as they require nothing more than a camera and your birthday suit.
Sadly, selfies’ main boner killer is the fact that they provide very little in terms of angle and composition. Even if you’re the world champion of handjobs, the human arm can only extend or bend so much.
Polaroids make for great exclusive items that you can sell, whether individually or in sets.
Think of them as higher-tier products in your store. They’re physical items meant to evoke a certain vibe, so you can tag them as exclusive, premium goods, and set a higher price for them.
These days, just about anyone can snap a pic. That’s why having material products for sale will set you apart from the competition.
To further play up the exclusivity angle, you can give your polaroids a personal touch by adding signatures or dedications to them. It’s all about creating a connection between you and your clientele.
They’re also popular among older audience members. So, if you’re looking to land an online sugar daddy, you can’t go wrong with offering polaroids here and there.
If Freud knew that 75 percent of people have at least one fetish, he’d temporarily stop polishing his boner (pun intended) to roll over in his grave. So, if you’re reluctant to take fetish nudes because you think kinks are some rare phenomenon, you should think again.
Also, not all kinks have to be uncomfortable or complicated. Sometimes, all it takes is for you to show your feet or put on some nylons, and your clients will go crazy.
There are countless fetishes out there to choose from. We suggest looking into porn niches to find something you’re comfortable with, and then simply produce content for that niche.
Most nude models do not offer individual pictures for sale. Instead, they sell nudes as full image sets, starting with at least 20, and going up from there.
While making a set may seem complicated, they are actually very quick and simple to create.
All you’ll need to do is to put on (or take off) a sexy outfit, and take a bit of time shooting yourself in different poses. The whole thing will rarely take more than 15 minutes — or even less if you’ve got a photographer.
These are both common and popular, as they give clients a big bang for their buck. They also aren’t nearly as basic as you might think.
For instance, a virtual strip show is a particularly popular kind of image set. These are sequences where each picture shows you with one less clothing item, culminating in one or several nude shots.
And if you insist on not selling in bulk, nothing’s stopping you from shooting a set, then individually selling each image in it. Just keep in mind that these won’t sell nearly as well as a full set.
How To Take Nudes That Sell
The best way to learn what makes a great naughty pic is to check what successful models are doing. Research big names, study their content, release schedule, niche, pricing, and anything else that you can note down.
Check out their poses and angles, and practice recreating the ones you like and think that you can pull off. Don’t get frustrated if you don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera just yet; you’ll get the hang of it.
Are you unsure where to start that research? Bigshots have been using the websites listed below to sell nudes for years, so we suggest giving those a whirl.
Another option (that sadly isn’t free) is to hire a professional photographer for a high-tier photoshoot. Boudoir photographers will know how to put your assets to great use, and create pics your fans will just eat up.
If you prefer to experiment on your own, though, that’s completely fine. Here’s a quick step-by-step guide that you’ll want to follow when making nudes.
Step 1: Getting Ready
Going off prematurely is never good. So, before you start shooting, you’ll need to do some mental and physical preparation.
Let’s start with the headspace. Simply, if you’re not in the mood for a session, you shouldn’t force yourself through it.
Buyers will be able to smell the disinterest in your photos, and if they aren’t pleased with their purchase, you probably won’t see them again.
However, if you really need to release a photo set and the gears just won’t click, you can resort to a tried-and-true industry trick. Just have a glass of wine or another alcoholic beverage, and let it do its thing.
Booze is an ancient social lubricant, and it’ll help you slide right into a relaxed mindset. Just don’t go too far, as alcoholism generally isn’t considered sexy.
Once you’re ready to make some magic, you’ll want to decide on the specific type of nude(s) you’d like to shoot, then figure out the posing in advance.
Next, pick an outfit that will highlight what you’re aiming to show. For instance, if you’re putting your boobs front and center, get a wet or transparent top, push-up bra, or something else to make them pop.
After choosing the outfit, consider putting on makeup and styling your hair. While the au naturel look is sure to have its fans, you’ll find it easiest to sell nudes where you’re just picture perfect.
That being said, there’s no need to go all-out by seeing a hair stylist or makeup artist — unless you really want to leave everyone breathless.
Instead, we suggest doing it yourself, in your own home. You’ll save money, and get better at creating killer looks in the process.
Step 2: Prepare The Scene
Once you’re in top shape, you’ll need to prepare your shooting location or set. That will typically include cleaning the place up and removing any mess or clutter.
Remember, you’re the star of the show. As such, you’ll want your buyers’ attention on you — not on background distractions.
If you’ll be taking any mirror selfies, clean that mirror up before reaching for the camera. And speaking of mirrors and cameras, do the same with its lens from time to time.
It’s also important to set the lighting to highlight your features. This can be as simple as moving curtains, or as complex as wiring and setting up a ring light in the right place.
Finally, remember to ensure your privacy during the shoot. Unless you’d like to recreate that popular porn scenario where someone barges in and catches you half-naked, lock your doors.
Step 3: Start Shooting
Once both you and the scene are set, you can begin.
During the session, experiment with your camera’s location, settings and timers, and take as many photos as possible. Feel free to change clothes and move the scene, and experiment with poses to highlight different features.
Once you’re done shooting, doing some edits is always a good idea. Play around with your camera’s filters, or log into your favorite social media platform to give its filters a shot.
For example, Instagram and Snapchat are popular, easy to use, and chock-full of special effects that you can use.
And once you’re happy with what you have, it’s time to choose where you’ll actually sell nudes.
Where To Sell Nudes Online
Three platforms stand out among the many places where you can do business:
We’ll cover those in detail, then quickly go over some other decent options.
Established in 2016, OnlyFans has become the largest and most famous website for premium adult content. It’s now the go-to spot for influencers to sell their NSFW wares that platforms like YouTube, Twitch, and Instagram just won’t allow.
OnlyFans is one of your best choices for selling nudes due to a number of reasons.
Before everything else, OnlyFans is the first site that comes to mind when anyone mentions buying and selling nudes. That means that if you go for it, you’ll have a huge potential audience at your disposal.
Second, the website will let you release as much content as you want, and you won’t be limited to just selling photos. You can also organize cam shows, offer videos, sext, and sell pretty much any other kind of homemade porn.
Fourth, OnlyFans also lets you publish posts that will only unlock upon additional payment. Therefore, you could make your subscription fee low (or even make your account free) to entice buyers before offering premium content on a pay-to-view basis.
And on top of all those perks, the site takes only 20% of your gross monthly earnings, leaving the rest in your pocket. If you’re interested, here’s a detailed guide to help you sell nudes on the platform.
If OnlyFans has a downside, it’s how much beginners make on it. The platform does nothing to promote new faces, so if you don’t have an existing fan base, you may want to start elsewhere.
Currently, OnlyFans is limited to bank transfers, e-wallet payments, and Paxum.
Depending on where you live and whether you’d like to keep your naughty career private, that might be bothersome.
On the upside, these limitations mean that your earnings will be fully legitimized. Depending on your country’s laws, you may even get various freelance benefits.
Therefore, you’ll need to link a bank account to your OnlyFans account before you can receive your money. You can update that info at any time.
The platform makes daily payments. So whenever you have money on your balance, it will be sent to you that very day.
Despite its name, ManyVids will also let you sell photos. While it is a smaller platform than OnlyFans, it still has a loyal audience.
Primarily, people with distinct tastes that can’t be sated on large platforms like OnlyFans often turn to ManyVids to scratch that itch. That means that you can easily claim a profitable niche and get a dedicated and eager-to-buy fanbase on it.
Next, ManyVids is kinder to new creators than OnlyFans due to having a discovery feed. As a result, you won’t have as much trouble reaching an audience and getting big.
On top of all that, they will mostly keep their hands in their pockets for the first year, and only take 10% of your gross subscription earnings. After the 12-month mark, though, they’ll move to the 20% industry standard.
They’re much greedier when it comes to individual video sales, though — taking 40% from those. However, if you stick to photos and subscription models, you won’t really feel the difference.
ManyVids offers direct deposit, Bitsafe, Paxum, and Cosmopayment as payout options, leaving OnlyFans in the dust. Therefore, it’s a great choice if you’re worried about privacy or if OnlyFans won’t work with your bank.
They’ll pay you automatically — on the 1st and 16th of each month — if you’ve met the $50 minimum payout requirement.
For the transfer to take place, you’ll need to reach that minimum amount by 7 p.m. EST on the previous day. Payments that fall on weekends or holidays will be sent at the earliest opportunity.
Most payouts arrive within 2 to 7 business days, depending on the payment method you choose.
Patreon is one of the most popular online money-making platforms for gamers, bloggers, musicians, and models.
The site gained popularity in 2016/17, when the YouTube adpocalypse cucked most YouTubers out of making a living solely from ad revenue. Expectedly, adult creators soon joined the show.
Like your SFW colleagues on the platform, you can create multiple monthly subscription tiers. Sadly — and also like them — you can’t have any nudity on your entrance page.
In practice, this means that you will have to mark nude photos as patrons only content before you can sell them on Patreon. There are no samples — fans need to sign up before they can see your work.
Because of this rule, it is only a good choice if you already have an established audience — similarly to Onlyfans.
Getting big purely from Patreon traffic is not a viable possibility, but the low fees and multi-tiered system make it very attractive for models with dedicated fans.
We’ve saved the best for last: after processing fees, Patreon retains between 5% and 12% of your gross earnings. This is the lowest cut out of our big three, meaning that you’ll get to keep almost all of your hard-earned money!
Patreon lets you withdraw to a bank account, Payoneer, or PayPal, depending on your chosen currency and location. Exclusively for US citizens, they also offer Stripe.
These are more convenient than what our other two main options will let you use. So, if you can leap over Patreon’s high bar, you’ll enjoy unmatched payment flexibility when you sell nudes.
Schedule-wise, Patreon processes payments on the first of each month. They recommend waiting until the 5th before initiating withdrawal, as this will ensure that all payments are processed in time to be included.
Depending on the payout method you go with, deposits usually arrive within 1-5 business days.
These are our Top 3 picks, but if neither of them gets you excited, we’ve got more. For a quick look at some other great websites to sell nudes, check the list below.

Please note that specialized adult marketplaces like SofiaGray and Kinkie will not take any commission from your sales. Instead, they require sellers to pay a $15 monthly membership fee.
That means that once you get the ball rolling and start selling a large number of nudes on them, nearly everything you make will be yours.
How to Sell Nudes Independently
Selling your nudes without having major platforms reach into your pocket can be hard to pull off, but it absolutely can be done.
Keep in mind, though, that those platforms are large for good reason. So, if you take this alternative route, you’ll likely end up making an overall lower number of sales.
Going independent is also a good option if you want to provide other services, like video chats or sexting.
Sell Nudes via Social Media (Using Unlockt)
In theory, you can sell nudes over direct messaging on any social media platform. Some popular choices include:
- Snapchat: Selling nudes via the platform’s direct messaging feature is a tried-and-true way to make some bucks.
- Instagram: There’s no shortage of horndogs here; just make sure to keep your public profile relatively tame.
- Telegram: This platform is exceptionally private and secure, and lets you send timed, self-deleting messages.
Granted, since those platforms weren’t made for selling nudes, you’ll need an external tool to handle the payment — and possibly even the exchange. Luckily, a convenient little app called Unlockt has you covered in that regard.
You can use it right after installation; after starting it up, you’ll see an initial import screen. The screen will have an Add Media section, a Set Price block, and a Generate Link button.
By tapping the Add Media surface, you’ll open a browsing menu. Find and mark the file or files you wish to sell, and confirm your choice.
Back on the initial screen (with your selected files displayed), you’ll need to set your price. To do so, click the Set Price block, and enter a number.
Finally, press Generate Link, and the screen will change once more. You’ll then be shown a URL under a blurred version of the media section, and a Copy Link button.
Tapping the button will copy the link, making it easy for you to paste it to your buyer over your usual communication channel.
All that’s left is for them to pay your price. With that done, the files you sent will unlock for them, and you’ll get the money.
Using the app is free, but it will keep 20% from all sales made over it.
However, if selling over social media doesn’t quite vibe with you, you can shoot for the skies and launch your own website. These days, with flexible themes and affordable web design services, the option isn’t nearly as expensive as you might think.
Alternatives to Unlockt
As we’ve already explained, Unlockt is your all-in one solution for exchanging both content and money. If you can’t or don’t want to use it, though, you can still send your nudes over the social media platforms above, and handle payment via Cash App or Venmo.
Just keep in mind that doing so is less convenient, and might be risky based on your platform of choice.
To elaborate, Cash App is popular among nude pic sellers because it takes no percentage from the transferred amount. They also won’t cockblock you with any anti-nudity rules.
As another benefit, the government won’t charge any additional fees for your CashApp transactions.
It is currently supported only in the US and UK.
Like CashApp, Venmo is a mobile payment app. Payments take about three days to process, much like wire transfers.
Unlike CashApp, though, Venmo takes a 1% or $10 fee (whichever is less) for debit card deposits. The service is currently available in the US.
We’ve actually covered the best adult payment processors, so we suggest checking that article out. You’ll find it especially useful if you plan on launching your own model website.
How Much to Sell Nudes For
Nudes may be art pieces, but you shouldn’t make them too expensive. Doing so would limit your exposure (pun intended), and for adult content creators, fame is the name of the game.
A good price range for individual pics is between $2 and $5, with the former being a good starting point. As your audience expands, you can increase your prices and drift closer to $20.
Nude photo sets typically go between $10 and $100 based on the number of pics in the set (5 is the usual minimum), their quality, your niche, and your audience’s dedication.
Again, stay around the lower end of the range until you have a stable and recurring audience.
How to Promote Your Nudes Online
Even if your nudes are hot enough to give a grumpy old grandpa a stiffy, you’ll get no value out of them if no one sees them. That’s why you’ll need to put yourself out there, and you’ll find the best platforms to do it, below.
Twitter is an easy place to promote your nudes. Not only does the platform allow it, but its tagging system will let you quickly and easily target potential customers with your posts.
That being said, you still probably won’t want to get too hardcore with what you share. Remember, the end goal is to sell nudes, not give them up for free.
So, post enticing (possibly censored) pics, use relevant tags (such as #nsfw), and keep your juiciest work behind a paywall.
Include links to your sales platform(s) in your posts and bio. That way, potential buyers will be able to check them before their blood rushes back to their brains.
Finally, make sure to regularly visit the platform and respond to DMs whenever possible. Given that famous models won’t have the time to engage with their audience, this personal touch will be your major selling point.
If you’re familiar with Instagram, you probably know that bikini pics are about as raunchy as they’re willing to get. Post any actual nudes, and you get the boot.
As we’ve pointed out for Twitter, though, you generally won’t want to go all tits-out with your promotional materials, anyway. Be sexy, imply that you’ve got naughtier material somewhere out there, and let the platform do its magic.
You’ll do that by regularly posting some enticing (yet still restrained) pics to your feed and as your story.
Include relevant hashtags such as #babe, #sexy, as well as anything else that describes your work. On the other hand, don’t use overtly sexual tags like #pornstar, or you’ll risk getting shadowbanned.
Now, while you won’t be able to directly link to your sales platform(s) in your bio, you can fool the system with a trick.
Namely, you can create a Linktree account, add a link to your store there, then include the Linktree URL in your Instagram bio.
That way, interested parties will see your posts, check your profile, and subsequently navigate to where the goods are. Easy-peasy boob-squeazy.
Given how clean TikTok looks at first glance, no one would blame you for writing it off. That would be a mistake, though, as plenty of adult stars regularly promote themselves there.
If it’s good for OnlyFans creators such as Rubi Rose, Katie Sigmond, and Pia Mia, you can bet that it’ll be great for you.
Just make sure to keep your clothes on in your videos — and no, your birthday suit won’t count. Flash your junk or a nip, and you’ll be gone in a flash.
Similarly, you’ll want to keep what you write under wraps. Don’t include words such as sex, porn, or even sexy in your posts or bio, or you’ll get shadowbanned like on Instagram.
Otherwise, there’s not much to do but follow trends. Browse the platform, do the popular dances, and give them your unique spin.
Include the #fakebody tag in your posts. It may seem strange, but adult content creators commonly use it to distinguish themselves.
Now comes the iffy part: smuggling in a link to your sales platform. If you’re thinking about the Linktree trick from above, you’ve got the right idea — with a twist.
Namely, TikTok won’t let you add links to your bio without getting approved for a business account. And just to make everything even more difficult, you’ll need 1,000 or more followers to apply for one.
Until you reach that milestone, though, we recommend another trick. To make use of it, you’ll require an Instagram account with a Linktree URL in your platform bio.
With that taken care of, just use TikTok as we’ve described above — but add the caption What you’re looking for is on Instagram to the videos you post.
It’s roundabout, but it costs nothing and will help you sell nudes.
Reddit is a wild place, but it still has rules that you’ll have to follow if you intend to use it for promotion.
Sure, the site has countless adult subreddits for all sorts of porn that you can — and cannot — imagine. However, a lot of them won’t let you directly promote yourself, and breaking those rules will get you banned.
Still, you can make the platform work for you in three simple steps:
- Add a link leading to your sales platform of choice to your Reddit bio
- Read up on adult subreddits — this is a good starting point
- Post teasers on subreddits that you find relevant for your content.
Now, a teaser will typically include a suggestive picture of you, along with some writing. And the nature of the written content will depend on whether the subreddit allows promotion.
If the answer is yes, you can link to your sales platform in each post — no worries. Otherwise, just invite the natives to check your profile for more content.
Either way, you’ll expose plenty of horny coomers to your work, leading to increased sales.
While a private Snapchat is a great way to sell nudes, a public account is an incredible promotion tool. Just don’t get the two confused, as publicly posting lewds is a quick way to the chopping block.
Think of the platform as your own personal picture and video diary. As such, you’ll get best results by making the minor details of your life available for everyone to see.
Did you have a fine day, or a particularly bad one? Did a rude stranger piss you off? Is there something you want to get off your chest?
Just take your phone, snap a pic or video, and get it all out there! You’ll look spontaneous and relatable, and more and more platform users will check your profile to see what you’re about.
What they’ll find there, of course, will be a Linktree URL, containing a link to your sales platform.
The Pros & Cons of Selling Nudes Online
Are you still unsure if the nudes gig is for you?
That’s fine. Here are some pros to get you hot on the idea, along with a handful of cons that you may want to consider.
The Pros of Selling Nudes Online
Before everything else, selling nudes is convenient. You won’t have to travel, put on fancy clothes — or wear any clothes at all — to close a deal.
In contrast to stripping or working as an escort, you could run your nude photo business online, from the comfort of your home. You also won’t need to invest into any special equipment — especially early on.
Just as importantly, this line of work will leave you with an extremely flexible schedule. Unlike, say, a live cam model, you won’t have to make yourself available at any particular moment.
Instead, you’ll be able to spread your time around however it suits you — shoot, post, and promote nudes in your own time, at your own pace.
Furthermore, selling nudes online is completely safe, as you’ll be doing it from your own place.
You won’t have to meet a stranger in a seedy bar and exchange the goods under the table — though nothing’s stopping you if the scenario gets you going.
Next, having someone purchase your nudes is a major confidence booster.
Think about it; no one would spend money on something they dislike. Thus, as your business swells, so will your sense of self-worth.
Lastly, you can rest assured that selling nudes is entirely legal, as long as you’re over the age of majority. If you have any doubts on the matter, we recommend checking out our article on the topic.
The Cons of Selling Nudes Online
Firstly, your earnings will depend on the number and generosity of your paying clients, making them inconsistent.
However, your average will be pretty high — between $8k and $15k per month. Just make sure to plan around the dryer months.
Second, you may have to deal with a fair bit of prejudice. Back in the day, showing up in revealing photos was seen as immoral or gross — and offering them up for sale was worse.
Thankfully, those times have gone the way of grandpa’s erections. Nowadays, nude shots are becoming more common in mainstream media — films, ads, and entertainment in general.
Soon, making one’s living in the adult industry will be seen as just another — albeit very sexy — profession.
Thirdly, you may want to take certain steps to address privacy concerns, especially if you’d like to keep your nude hustle under wraps. Your biggest potential issue in this regard will be having your buyers reuse and sell your photographs without permission.
You can minimize the chances of that happening by signing a written agreement with each of them. Have the agreement forbid the reproduction and redistribution of your work, and the buyers will likely respect it.
If they happen to break the agreement, you’ll have grounds for legal compensation. And in that case, you can always hire a specialized agency to delete your leaked pics from the web.
In summary, if you decide to sell nudes, you’ll enjoy the quickest way to make honest, real money online, at your own pace, in your own time, and from the comfort of your home. Relax, flaunt your sex appeal, and make the kind of dough that only the adult industry can deliver!
