Model Kazumi Squirt became a millionaire within two years by posting content on OnlyFans.
The online sex worker told Insider that she also wants to have an avatar in the metaverse.
Aside from her content creation, she is exploring opportunities in crypto and real estate.
An OnlyFans model who says she became a millionaire two years after joining the platform believes that other digital spaces, like the metaverse, offer huge potential for sex workers.
Kazumi Squirt, as she is known to her fans, said she also sold her first NFT — a photo collage of herself — for the equivalent of $400.
She shared documentation with Insider that verified her gross earnings from modeling work as of January 2022.
Squirt said she grew up in a very strict culture and wasn’t allowed to go outside, unless she was with her family or going to school, until she was 17. She also said she wasn’t allowed to have a phone until she was 18, and credits her online success to the digital skills she developed while socializing on the internet.
Squirt told Insider that despite her strict upbringing, “sex work has always been something that piqued my interest, and I think I have always been internally horny.” Squirt, who is of Filipino descent, also said she’s keen to represent Asian sex workers.
She added: “I’ve always been about sex positivity, and before I started to monetize my content, I was already going to sex events while being a marketing executive,” as she believed that she should keep “business and pleasure” separated.
Her goal was to become a leader in the marketing agency where she was working, but when the pandemic hit, it pushed her to focus on her OnlyFans site.
Squirt wants to invest money so she can sustain her lifestyle.
Becoming a sex worker in the metaverse
Squirt told Insider that she has always been hungry for success and is now looking to get into the crypto community. She said she hasn’t fully thrown herself into the crypto industry, in part because it needs to answer for “the weird impact on the environment,” but she recognizes its financial potential.
She is also contemplating creating an avatar in the metaverse and becoming a virtual sex worker, because, she said, “There is so much potential for digital sex.”
The idea of being a sex worker in the metaverse appears unlikely, however, based on Meta’s past moderation of nudity content on its platforms.
Meta did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment on the possibility of allowing sex workers in the metaverse.
Imposter syndrome is also a recurring feeling for Kazumi. She said that despite the fact that she’s already made a good amount of money, her regular income is still unstable.
OnlyFans’ announcement that it was banning sexually explicit content last year, before quickly reversing the decision, did not help her feel reassured about her financial stability.
While Squirt has made a name for herself by selling explicit content online, she ultimately wants to find a way to make passive residual income. “Crypto is the future,” she said, hence her interest in discovering more about it, but she also wants to get involved in the real-estate industry.
“I think this is part of being a porn star. Everyone I know in the sex industry is interested in real estate.” For people like her, who want to make a lot more money, the real-estate industry is “where it’s happening,” she added.
Although she has found a good balance between creating content and maintaining her personal life, she works a lot – and enjoys doing so – but prioritizes looking after her mental health.
“I have so much more life to live,” she said. “I love the lifestyle I have built for myself, and it’s very expensive. I want to make sure that my investments are able to keep that up, even when I’m no longer as sexy or relevant on the internet.”
