Model Alexis Griswold says money she's earning from selling OnlyFans snaps is going towards paying off her parents' rent.
The brunette beauty, who has 473,000 followers on TikTok and 207,000 followers on Instagram, decided to join the adults only platform in September last year.
As the coronavirus pandemic made it more difficult for the influencer to secure brand deals, she decided to diversify.
The 22-year-old, who lives in Los Angeles, signed up to the saucy subscription site where she now has more than 600 subscribers paying $16.99 (£12.17) per month.
And she's making sure she's helping her family – who are supportive of her OnlyFans career – with her earnings.
Alexis told LADBible: "I do help my parents out and send them money. I'm really thankful for that. My family, luckily, is really supportive."
Despite reaping the cash benefits from being on the subscription-based site, Alexis says she has also faced some negativity since joining OnlyFans.
She refuses to let this hold her back though – as she believes the site is being transformed by influencers like herself.
While some use the platform to post pornographic content, the model's page is more of a way to connect with her followers.
Alexis says she shares Q&A videos on OnlyFans and 'more personal stuff' than on her other social media channels.
On her profile, she adds: "Subscribe to see exclusive photos, videos, behind the scenes, get to know me, and more!"
She continued: "Some friends have made comments on it, but I try to just like not let that get to me and explain to them the bigger picture about it.
"It [OnlyFans] does have a bad reputation, but I feel like it's almost changing with how everyone is starting to use it for different things, other than what it was perceived to be as."
"I feel like people's perspectives are kind of changing on it and it's not as bad as when it first came out.
"It kind of started off as more of a sexual thing, rather than a fan base platform like it was supposed to be; it kind of got turned into something else.
"But I feel like the influencer community has kind of taken over it now and it's starting to become something different."
As well as OnlyFans, Alexis says she feels like people also have a false impression of influencing.
She claims it isn't easy and is "a lot more work than what people think it is".
The bombshell also said you can't become an influencer "overnight" just from posting one snap – she said you have to put in the work and effort to become a success.
