Make Money Selling Nude Photos and Videos

Taking Perfect Selfie

Guide: Where To Sell Nude Photos / Videos

The most common question / request we receive at Webcam Startup is “Where can I sell my nudes?”. There’s plenty of places where you can sell your nudes and plenty of ways to go about it. Are you trying to make money off “selfie content”? Are you trying to sell full clips or videos? Depending on what you’re trying to do, different options might work better than others. Here’s all the ways you can make money off your nude photos and videos.


Charging Per Photo Vs Subscription Services

The first question you should ask is what type of business model do you want to go with. There’s two main options here: Per-piece or via subscription service. With a subscription service, you build a residual income from the rebills (or sell ‘lifetime access”, if that’s more your style). Charging per-piece is fairly self explanatory. We’ve got a list of some of the sites you can use for the various business models.


Selling Subscriptions

If you want to go the subscription route, there’s tons of different platforms you can check out and several different ways to go about it. Here are some of the best ways to make money from adult fanclubs / premium subscriptions:



OnlyFans – The Social Network That Gets You Paid

OnlyFans looks and behaves exactly like a social media site. The only difference is that users are able to set their price and users must subscribe to their page in order to access the content. This creates a residual income, as the users will have to keep paying the monthly subscription rate to access the content. The more subscribers, the greater the monthly income!

If selling selfie-style content is what you’re wanting to do, OnlyFans is a great network. With the mobile version, your browser can sync with your phone and camera, and you can easily upload selfies or short clips. Your fans can like and comment on the posts you make, just like a normal social network. There’s also a messaging system you can use to keep up with your fans, or send locked content through for extra revenue.

Selling Private Snapchat Subscriptions

Premium Snapchat is another route that you can go for premium subscriptions. Snapchat is a popular messaging app, therefore it’s something that a lot of users already have. Just keep in mind that nude and explicit content isn’t allowed on Snapchat, so if you post that it could get your account suspended! There’s models that do post explicit content on their premium Snapchat and those that keep it non-nude but still sexy. It’s possible to sell subscriptions to other social media, like Instagram for example, but premium Snapchat is definitely the most popular.


Main Sites For Premium Snapchat:

FanCentro – FanCentro is the main site for premium Snapchat subscriptions. FanCentro also supports Instagram subscriptions, and a fanclub platform built directly into the site.

ManyVids – ManyVids is primarily a clip site, meaning they specialize in video sales. If you’re not also selling videos on the site, you’re not going to have much success selling the other services on the site. If you are also selling videos, it’s a great site to sell your other services as well, including premium Snapchat.  There’s two ways to sell Snapchat on ManyVids: through the texting functionality or using a custom store item.

Membershyp – Membershyp is another network that specializes in premium Snapchat sales. In addition to Snapchat, performers can also sell subscriptions for Instagram, Kik and WhatsApp.

More Sites – There’s a lot of sites out there that support the sale of Snapchat subscriptions. Some of them focus specifically on premium Snap, while others just support it.


Selling Nudes Per-Photo

If you are looking to charge per photo, then you will likely be sending them through a messaging app. Some people combine a Snapchat subscription with the ability to also request specific photos for additional payment, or they send the photos through a messaging app or sexting platform after receiving payment (some sexting platforms even charge them to open the photo when they open it!)


Messaging Apps For Sending Nudes:

Snapchat – Not only is a great way to sell subscriptions (see the section above), but it can also be used to deliver individual photos or short clips as well.

Kik – Kik is a popular messaging app. Kik is a great way to deliver individual photos that customers purchase. Kik sessions are another way that models can make money off of Kik. Kik sessions are sexting sessions done through the app.

Twitter – Twitter DMs are another way to send the content. Twitter is a good choice, as it’s one of the most popular social networks. Twitter is also a good way to promote your services.


Sites Where You Can Charge Per-Message:

OnlyFans – We discussed OnlyFans in detail above. One of the features is the ability to send locked content. Your subscribers will have to pay to unlock the content. If you don’t want to charge for subscriptions (which you should) and only want to send nudes via locked content, you can do so by setting the subscription to zero dollars.

JustForFans – JustForFans is primarily a fanclub platform and clip store, but supports paid messages as well. JustForFans is open to all genders and orientations, but is primarily a male / gay network. That makes the site one of the best options for males.

NiteFlirt – NiteFlirt is primarily a phone sex site, but one of their features is the ability to send photo messages as well.

SextPanther – SextPanther is another phone sex site that offers the ability to send photo messages. Please note: SextPanther is semi-exclusive about their model-base and may not accept performers that don’t have enough experience or a big enough following.



SquarePeep: Members Pay To Uncensor Photos

SquarePeep is a newer network that is worth mentioning. With SquarePeep, models upload and censor photos. Members have to pay to uncensor those photos. Models get paid when their photos are uncensored. Being a newer network, it doesn’t have the traffic as some of the established clip sites. But being that the entire focus of the site is monetizing photos, it’s worth a mention here.

Selling Photo Galleries / Pic Sets

In addition to selling individual nudes and selfie-style content, it’s also possible to sell entire galleries / photo sets. This requires a little bit more work than just snapping a nude selfie, but opens up a lot more options not available with individual photos. Here are the main sites for selling photo sets.

BentBox – BentBox is a platform for both mainstream and adult content producers. BentBox is really popular with the adult glamour models, but can be used to sell explicit photo content as well. With BentBox, users organize various files (photo, video, ect) in “Boxes” that are priced and sold. To create a photo gallery, simply create a box for the themed photo gallery, upload the photos and set the price!

SideDaddy – SideDaddy is another site that supports photo sets. Unlike BentBox, SideDaddy is 100% adult-oriented. Creating a photo set is simple; upload your photos, set the price and the pic set will appear on your profile and be available for purchase.

ModelCentro – ModelCentro is a platform for easily deploying free membership sites. ModelCentro works on a revshare model, so there’s zero upfront costs, outside of the website name. It’s possible to upload photo galleries and video, and place them behind a paywall. Members will have to subscribe before they can access the photo galleries and other content.

Clip Sites With Custom Store Items – Many of the clip sites support custom store items. These items can be used to sell photo galleries, although it’s a little more complex than the networks that support photo galleries specifically. It’s possible to create a store item for each gallery. When someone purchases the gallery, you’ll have to manually get them the photo content, however.


More Info On Selling Nudes


What’s Easier: Selling Nudes Through Subscription or Per Photo?

Selling through subscription is easier to manage simply because you are catering to a wider audience, the earning potential is higher since if you consider you are selling x amount of photos for x amount of money to x amount of customers, and that amount of customers is high, you will be making more than selling to one individual person. The success of subscription also varies depending on the quantity of photos you take, the quality of photos you take, and the amount of subscription renewals you get. For some people who don’t prefer to take nude photos often, selling them individually or doing custom photo orders may work better than running a subscription based social media app.


How Much Should I Charge For My Nudes?

The price you set for your nudes depends entirely on what you value them to be. Keep in mind that the cheaper you price them the more likely you are to sell them, but this can serve as a double edged sword if you feel “cheaped out” by pricing them too low. If the quality of your photos is great, you will likely be able to charge more and sell it.

For example, if you’re taking your photos on a high quality DSLR that puts out HD photos then you will be able to make more from that than a cell phone picture that isn’t in HD. You must also keep in mind that the photo may be redistributed without your permission, which will count as a loss towards your profit. Make sure you consider watermarking!

Many models have found success in subscriptions due to the fact that most people viewing these do not expect consistent high quality all of the time. Since a majority of the services are phone based, the model is pretty limited to the capability of their phone camera and the compressing of the app. As well as including photos, some subscription running models also find it convenient to post short videos to keep the audience entertained as well which can be easier than setting up and posing for multiple photos.
