The former star of adult movies, Mia Khalifa, spent only three months in the business, but it is still haunting her. That's why she decided to take matters into her own hands.
She created the OnlyFans account to take back power and her voice. The account features various photos and videos, and the monthly subscription is $11.99 (£9.28).
What do you get for your money
Khalifa shared with her Instagram followers that she's opening her OnlyFans page, which will be similar to her Instagram, only with more juicy content.
Addressing her many fans, Mia wrote:
"THANK YOU SO F***ING MUCH for supporting me on this new and exciting platform. I am finally growing into my self-confidence in who I am and the decisions I make for me. This is my way of being myself outside the perimeters of conventional social media. Even though I will not be creating nude content, I am going to be treating this page like my Instagram without terms of service lol.I want to take my power back and just post what I want and what makes me feel good, and I'm just so thankful that y'all are along for this wild ride.This is all very new to me, I've never been on a platform as fan-facing, so any suggestions for improving my presence here is greatly appreciated! I love you!"
Khalifa in the adult video industry
Mia became one of the most popular porn stars in the world despite only starring in a handful of productions. But she has since warned others against joining the industry.
She wrote on Instagram:
Those 11 videos will haunt me until I die, and I don't want another girl to go through that – because no one should.
Long story short: don't do porn. And if you do, don't do it with a company. Do it for yourself, on your own terms.
And if you consume porn, make sure it's ethical and not from giant corporations who profit off exploiting women. Like your groceries, shop local, and direct from the creators.
Though she only made 12,000 dollars in the movies, the company she's referring to is still making money, promoting her old material as her comeback. She made a series of tweets explaining her situation.
"I just want B*angbros to stop actively putting me in harm's way by promoting my 6-year-old videos like they're new, making millions of ppl think I'm still active. The death threats are emotionally crippling; I haven't felt safe, even going to the grocery store alone in years."
1.8 million people signed Justice For Mia Khalifa petition on change.org. The petition aims to have her videos removed and her domain names returned to her.
Her OnlyFans account is a helping hand as she's growing her business as an influencer and sports commentator. Yes, she was 21 when she made her adult videos, but Khalifa paid her dues, and it's only normal to request control over the rest of her life.
The porn industry is vicious, as you probably heard from much more famous stars. Mia's message is a precautionary tale to all younger ladies. And luckily, people are starting to recognize the issue!
