I've been on this site over the past six months, and was shocked to learn that I spent $ 500 over the course of 6 months on this site. It is out of character for me to spend a penny on any porn, and in fact, do not recall ever having a porn subscription or paying for porn in the course of the history of the internet going back to dial-up in 1992. Some of the expenditures included $ 50 for a face-pic. Guess this means I must have had some fun to part with money like that over time.
Maybe it's not that much money compared to what an escortceller would normally pay.

I'm going to evaluate if there is any benefits from this in terms of not looking at any other types of porn, or escort ads, and see this has weaned me out of porn in general or if the exercise was a complete waste of time/detrimental. I've stopped it because lust is sinful full stop. Hopefully lust will be eradicated out of my system over time after a cold-turkey quit.

So, take my advice, don't go on this site, and save your money.

Wow. 500? Could have invested that money. Paying 500 and not physical touch. Why not use free porn hub? Or would have been better spend with an escort.

It didn't start that way. It started with a free subscription here and there. Then a cheap subscription which was just $ 5 or $10. When I paid that $ 5, it felt weird and I was worried the earth would shake below me and swallow me up because it just felt wrong.

This is just dealing with where it ended. I find it weird given my apprehension about that site in the first place and even paying for a very cheap subscription. How would I get so comfortable that I'd end up spending that much over time? That part is a mystery to me.

When I started this back in October last year, I didn't expect to spend that much money. So something can be free, cheap, $ 5 or $ 10, but the end-game could cost allot more than you bargain for.

@biggoal, also, if you google OnlyFans addiction, there are lots reddit threads or other places you can check as to why this is an addiction that is worst than porn. There are some good insights people have written that resonate with why I had liked onlyfans and spent money on there. (ie that porn for the most part is disgusting, degrading and exploitative while onlyfans is more like a DIY girl-next-door experience, and you could interact with the woman. It's the closest to a girlfriend experience in the realm of porn).

I'm not going to be defending onlyfans for purposes of this thread since I'm quitting it. It's not just addictive with me.

$500 on only fans???? That's madness.
As my other post said, its spread over 6 months for context. That works out to around $ 80/mth.

Would it make a difference if the same amount was spread over a year, five years, lifetime etc....? Is the principle of $ 500 spent the issue or monthly break-down?

Maybe go down to the bar and spend that money there if you're just looking for some company.

I don't interact with the public outside of the internet. I'm either at home, inside my car, or walking in a park. My father goes into stores (he got vaxxed). All interaction is mediated through the internet. That includes work, or any activity that's there. I even have a VR headset. There is a 6th wave in Ontario and I didn't get vaxxed/waiting for Novax, etc... I'm trying to remember the last in-person interaction in public that was not a distant hand gesture....probably a cashier about a month or two ago from one store. Lets face it, anyone could have covid right?

Oh fvck that sh!t. I'd probably be on Onlyfans too if my government made me a prisoner in my own home.

Although I've had no desire to visit this site, I think that it's great that you made this posting.

You probably knew beforehand that you might receive some crap about being a member and spending that kind of money... but for the sake of helping your fellow sosuave brother, you did it anyway.

Lots of respect for you on this.

Never spent money on online porn, but in the pre internet days I would visit sex shops and spend quite a bit on adult movies. This ultimately culminated into full blown porn addiction as I got internet access and pornograpjy induced erectile disfunction in my 30s.

Yeah, I remember those days. I was a minor during that time and I'd duck and hide when the store owner would look at the back section if I was near that part of the store. It was always a shame going there and getting caught. I saw a neighbour girl's pvssy as a kid though and I showed her my thing. Some grumpy old man from an opposite back yard ratted us out to the girl's parents, lol! Any access to porn came from finding stashes my dad hid away in the basement or trunk of his car. I was always hoping to accidentally find something (of course I'd throw it away afterwards because I knew it was wrong).

I have to discipline myself to stay away from porn despite having access to the internet. Too much access for mouse-clicks, and you can watch this on your devices anywhere. Such a big difference between the magical 80s to the semi-dystopia of today.

You were a teen or young adult during the 80s?

Nah, the 90s. The sex shops were vanilla compared to what you can get online these days. The Internet made it 100 times worse. Back in the day you had to be somewhat brazen to get porn by going to a store and hoping nobody you knew saw you going in.

I'm a little confused over what this site actually does. Are these all famous people, porn stars, or can any woman get on there and start collecting money? What does your money get you? Access to someone's catalog of videos, or are you able to chat her up yourself? Do you get to request her to do stuff? Just wondering.

Best of luck to you with your efforts on quitting.

It is interesting to connect with digital immigrants on here, such as myself, to see how things have changed with the internet. Is my privilege of growing up in a non-internet/non-digital world creating a sort of psychological space where I may be viewing a site like OnlyFans differently compared to someone who as born in the late 90s or early 00s where broadband internet / streaming /digital to them would be like TV and toilet paper to us. But to the younger generation they are feeling more directly threatened by this. If you look at post from @Zimbabwe, he is 25 years old and is an example of a digital native and he has very extreme views against OnlyFans. Is there a difference of perception of these sites between digital immigrants and digital natives?
