'The 7 questions I get asked all the time since I quit my job to work on OnlyFans.'

My name is Charli, and I'm a full-time influencer and OnlyFans creator from Canada, currently living in Australia.

I don't believe in marriage or monogamy. I left my stable job back home to become an OnlyFans creator and travel the world. I'm covered in tattoos. I don't want kids.

And I am currently the happiest I've been in my entire life.

But this wasn't always my story. Just a couple of years ago, I was living back home in Canada and was working full-time as a hairdresser. I grew up in a super-conservative home, where sex was something that wasn't spoken about. If you had told me 10 years ago that I'd be where I am today, I never would've believed you. So – how did I leave all of that behind and get into OnlyFans?

It all started during the pandemic. My business was dwindling, and I started questioning a lot of things in my life. My upbringing, my choices, and being true to myself.

I have always felt different and my sexuality was something that didn't align with the values I was taught as a kid. I started coming to terms with myself and felt more courageous to show up online and share my feelings: I'm Charli, I don't believe in marriage, I don't believe in monogamy, I like men and women, and I enjoy making erotic content.


I started creating content on TikTok and Instagram and really quickly started gaining a following. It was really insane to see. I thought it would be fun to make videos but I could never have expected them to resonate with so many people.

Today, a little over a year later, I have more than 150k fans across different platforms, who are amazing and loving and who have changed my life forever.

I was able to quit my job and commit to making content full-time; I now earn a six-figure salary and spend my time travelling the world, making content, and connecting with my fans. I am so grateful for the platform and the experience. I get to speak to so many amazing fans of mine – they make my day better, and I do everything I can to make theirs better too.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions I get: 

What are you going to do when you're older? Aren't you scared you'll regret it one day?

I try to stay in the present as much as possible. Right now, I enjoy doing what I do so much and it has brought me tremendous joy and freedom in my life. Regarding regret, I am not hurting anybody or doing anything bad, so I don't see myself regretting anything in the future.

Have you ever had fans ask you to do anything crazy?

I mean, it depends on what you define as 'crazy'. I’ve made several custom videos for my closer fans. One time a fan made me underwear with his face on it and I wore it for him and made him a video. I thought it was really cute!

What's your most controversial opinion?

Marriage is a scam. I mean, you do you, but it's not for me.

Does your family know? How did they react?

Yes, they know. It's not always simple and they don't understand everything but I always try to lead with compassion. My parents and my family think differently than me and that's okay. 

They found out by my videos reaching them without my consent, so it was a very awful way for them to find out. We didn't talk for a while but we are good now. There are just things we don't talk about. I know what I do is for myself, and myself only, and anybody in my life will have to accept that.


Have you lost any friends due to your lifestyle?

I did. I knew some people would have a hard time with it but I didn't realise to what extent. I think some people just can't see beyond themselves and really project their insecurities onto others. The people who are in my life now are happy for me, even if they don't understand anything. And anyone who wasn't, isn't in my life anymore.

Is there anything you wish people knew about OnlyFans creators?

It is way more work than people think. I've heard a lot of people online say things like, "Get a real job!" or insinuate that doing OnlyFans is for lazy women who want to make a quick buck. It's the complete opposite, really. I work much more than a full-time job (some days 12 hours and more) and the reason I've been successful is my dedication to my fans and the time and effort I put into it.

From making content to promoting yourself to chatting with your fans and maintaining that connection – it's not for everyone. But I am in no way complaining, I work hard but I absolutely love what I do.

How do you take care of your physical and mental health?

Meditation! Every single day. Three times a week I also do yoga to stretch, breathe, relax, and let go.
