With so many people turning to online subscription platforms like Patreon and OnlyFans in this here pandemic (and beyond), the likelihood of the average person being friends with someone who has one is pretty high. Slathering baby oil on your bits and posing in front of your webcam or phone is the NEW NORM now people. With everyone stuck indoors, how else can we all get paid? Everybody is at it!
The big question is: when you know (or suspect) your friend has a subscription platform, how do you approach them about it?
Well now, let me put my SEXY ETIQUETTE hat on for this as there is very much a right and a wrong way to go about things, and it all depends on your situation, your friend, and HOW YOU KNOW THEM so read carefully!
P.S. - To make it simple and easy to understand I have implemented a Spice Girls-inspired traffic light system, because why not?
RED LIGHT - STOP RIGHT NOW (THANK YOU VERY MUCH)
YOU STUMBLE UPON BY ACCIDENT
With all of these people the answer is don’t approach them at all.
ESPECIALLY if the site is secret and they haven’t told you about it themselves. They might not want you (or anyone) to know about it, so don’t go blabbing! Everyone has a right to privacy and just because they are doing something that you might not deem especially private, approaching them about it is a violation of trust and could ruin your relationship with them, or worse, cause them harm or personal problems.
To listen to the lyrics of that all important Spice Girls song: "caught in a craze, it's just a phase - or will this be around forever?" - basically you don't know if this is something they are just having a play around with and you don't want to cause them permanent damage (violence/job loss) by being a dick about it.
In this case it is very important that you:
DON’T tell their family or work colleagues.
DON’T post about it online
DON’T join up and start spying on them.
C’mon now, you don’t want to be known as that creepy narc who dobbed them in, FFS.
AMBER LIGHT - APPROACH WITH CAUTION
THE ONLINE FRIEND/CASUAL ACQUAINTANCE THAT YOU KIND OF KNOWN (BUT NOT REALLY)
If you have a casual acquaintance who has a subscription platform, and they are open about it, the best way to approach them is to be upfront and ask them about it privately in a DM or text, or privately in person (not drunk, or in a big group). Try to approach the subject in a non-judgemental way.
Such as: “Hey, I saw that you are on OnlyFans - what’s that all about then?”
NOT: “I joined your OnlyFans six months ago and I love all your dirty pics, what does your partner think about people like me wanking and spunking over you?”
In this case it is very important that you:
DON’T join their subscription site without speaking to them first
DON’T ask them for freebies
DON’T ask too many personal or explicit questions
THE FACEBOOK FRIEND
This one has happened to me, and probably most other sexy content creators. We all have old school friends that may have had crushes on us back in the day and there is a high likelihood that they will turn up on our OnlyFans one day, or at least ask us about it.
With mine, they didn’t join my subscription page, but they asked me for a custom (via Facebook!) when they were drunk, and were actually quite respectful about it, considering. I politely declined, and it didn’t affect our friendship because he was upfront and I am open with him about what I do. He is also the kind of guy to do exactly that, so it didn’t surprise me in any way because I know him and knew it wasn’t personal, he's just a dirty horny bastard (my husband thinks it is weird tho).
With this one it really depends on the person, your relationship with them, and whether you still talk to them or not. If it’s someone that you know well then you will probably be able to talk about it normally and laugh it off, but it really depends on how you approach them.
But whatever you do:
DON’T JOIN THEIR SUBSCRIPTION SITE!!! - There is honestly nothing worse. If you know the person well enough to have them on Facebook, you can send them a private DM asking about it, JOINING WITHOUT ASKING IS CREEPY and if they are cagey when you approach them about it then don’t push any further - this is a RED LIGHT signal!
THE GOOD FRIEND
If it's your BEST MATE and they have set up some kind of sexy page, then chances are they will have told you about it - if they haven't it's an AMBER or RED light, depending on their circumstances.
In all circumstances with this one, WAIT FOR THEM TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT IT.
GREEN LIGHT - GO FOR IT
If you are a creator and you know someone else in your friendship circle is a creator also then by all means approach them for help and advice via a DM or email. Be sure to ASK THEM FIRST, as a courtesy before joining their subscription site, as they might have a separate page for creator help or S4S, or they might not like being followed by other creators.
IN ALL SITUATIONS:
As you can tell, the answer in ALL cases is DO NOT JOIN THEIR PAGE. This is the most important rule of play and ignoring it will cause many many problems.
Also, DO NOT approach someone unless you know FOR SURE they are open about what they do.
The basic rule of thumb is if you know someone well enough to have their Facebook or phone number then THAT is the place you should be asking - not from within their private sexy realm. The amount of times people have done this to me now and I have completely blocked them out of my life (yes, that means YOU my old manager at McDonalds you creepy fucking bastard!) is beyond a joke. Don't be that creepy guy (or girl).
Anyway, I hope my tips helped and well done on having such sexy friends!
