Rebekka Blue, who previously worked as an exotic dancer, is now selling her body - not how most people would imagine.
The former dancer is selling her body parts, including toenails, dead foot skin, spit, and even dandruff. As if that is not strange enough, she has turned herself into a millionaire before hitting 30 by running this "unique" business.
TikTok videos that show her journey from poverty to riches have racked up thousands of views. She said that she is usually keeping things she should be throwing in the trash in a bag to sell later.
Blue is from Wilmington, North Carolina, and she spoke to the media about her bizarre business. Based on the amount of money she has made selling parts of her body, it is clear that many people want to own a piece of her.
She calls herself a "Professional Goddess," and she can make between $5,000 and $10,000 a month selling things people would consider gross.
Some of her merchandise include used tissues and panty liners. She considers what she is doing similar to the practice of celebrities selling off things they have used.
In a video with 2.5 million views, Blue described how she was selling Q-tips for $5 each.
The strange business started when the exotic dancer, who has 1.1 million followers on TikTok, sold one of her stripping outfits for $20. She did not think much of the sale, although the buyer was "overjoyed."
When she became a webcam model, she realized a demand for used items such as socks and underwear. She also started to sell other peculiar things on the side.
For instance, she would burp into bags before sealing them and selling them off. She has also sold used tissues, dirty shoes, and worn sportswear.
When she visits the salon to have her toes done, she asks for the flip-flops and the toenail dividers. She also tries to make her client pay for everyone's pedicures.
She uses these upselling tricks and also sells off her garbage. One person's trash can be someone else's treasure.
The decision to sell herself has paid off. She was making about $50 a week when she started, but now, she has earned over $1 million in just a decade.
She realizes that talking about her strange business on TikTok has made her business more profitable.
Blue had no reservations about sharing her experience on social media. The decision has not just boosted her business but has also allowed her to launch an entertainment company.
Today, she hires people to help her sell her products full-time.
Her products are appealing to her customers because they have her scent. That is why she vacuum seals the products to help them retain her pheromones.
She has continued to expand her product line, and currently, she also sells bottles of her spit.
The strangest thing she has sold so far is an IUD (intrauterine device), which she got from her doctor's trash.
The client who bought the device thought it was "godly" because it had been in her body for five years. This client has also purchased strange things from her, such as panty-liners, stuffed animals, and other things.
He was willing to fork out four figures to get his hands on Blue's IUD. Blue admits that this was the highlight of her career.
Another customer wanted a used pregnancy test from Blue. The customer wanted her to act as a wife trying to have a baby.
Blue bought a pregnancy test from the dollar store and created the pregnancy test fantasy for her customer. She was so serious about it that she almost wrote a script.
Still, this was not as strange as the time someone asked to buy a diaper she had worn. At this point, she said she could not go on since things got even "weirder."
Blue has had to turn down some of the requests she gets due to concerns over her safety and privacy.
To most people, selling off leftovers might seem bizarre, but Blue feels she is making the world a better place through her business.
She knows that people think what she is doing is crazy. However, she feels that she is selling hope, joy, and love to people in a safe manner.
The former exotic dancer has also launched a female-centered knife-making company known as Blades For Babes.
She has also written a book titled "Slutrepreneur Secrets: The Keys to Start your E-Commerce Empire." The book seeks to teach women how to sell their things.
Eventually, Blue would like to offer support and education to those who want to make careers out of selling "themselves" online.
She would like to bring about legal changes that give rights to people like her because payment processors don't protect them, and their security is not guaranteed.
Blue insists they run legitimate businesses and deserve to be handled like other business owners.
Blue is not the only person who sells parts of herself on the web. Stephanie Matto, the 90 Day Fiance star, has also made a lot of money by selling strange items such as bottles of boob sweat and farts in jars.
