I don't follow #celebrities of all sorts, but regardless, people should be free to entertain others, whether they're singers, dancers, YouTubers, or even an OnlyFans creator. However, they must not be forced into this field by a "pipeline of success" which takes especially incredible amounts of emotional labour. Now with #vtubers becoming an industry too, will the increasing mental toll on the entertainer being further away from the audience, as they are concealed by a virtual figure?
So #onlyfans creators are now being pumped out of the "#socialmedia engagement" assembly line that actively exploits sex workers, low-wage "chatters," and desperate customers alike. Sex work is one of the oldest jobs on earth, yet many still avoid the topic like a plague. When can sex work be normalized so that it can be free from the unregulated darkness of exploitation? When can sex workers feel safe doing their work solely on their own volition?
