Can you tell us a bit about your wife?
My wife is on OnlyFans. She’s from the Middle East and shows her face, which is exceptionally rare. I think that has helped her success immensely.
What country is she from in the Middle East? Are you Middle Eastern too?
She’s from Iraq. I’m American, born and raised.
How old are you both?
How has her background influenced her journey?
She grew up in Iraq but moved to the states in her mid-20s. She can never go back to her country; they would probably kill her. The amount of hate, online attacks, hate groups, and death threats is insane. But most of the time, our attitude is “fuck ’em, they hate us cause they ain’t us.”
How long did it take you to get to this point in terms of success and earnings?
About 3 years. The first year was a couple of thousand a month. The second year was about 10k-15k per month. This year it has really blown up.
What is she earning monthly?
40k-60k before taxes and costs.
That’s impressive! So, roughly half a mil a year?
Yes, this year is looking like over 500k before taxes and costs. Right now, her plan is to transition into a production company. Basically, everything stays the same, but she hires a girl to do her part.
How many hours per day or week does she have to work?
That is tough to say, she works a lot. That being said some of it I think isn’t really work. She spends a lot of time on social media conducting ‘research’ on other girls or getting into fights with trolls lol. I would say at least a few hours per day. Most days at least half of the day is her on calls with the people that run her social and planning shoots. Lots of lawyers too.
What are some pro tips to get to that point?
Find a niche. Bonus tip: stay independent, like OF or Fansly. It’s more work, but at the end of the day, YOU make the money, and YOU own the content, not the production companies.
I feel content is more timeless when it’s owned by a production company, though. What’s your take on that?
It’s the internet; it’s never going away. Most individuals in the industry are in it for the money.
Did your wife experience anxiety before committing to this profession?
No. She loves it. She’s confident, and she LOVES the attention. She’d probably still do it even if she didn’t make any money.
Are you involved in the content creation?
I am not really involved. Though, if you go through her entire catalog, my hand has made a few guest appearances.
So, is this a business-only venture for her, or is there an ‘open relationship’ aspect to it?
Not an open relationship. We’ve been occasional swingers in the past, but on sets and photo shoots, it’s very much business. It’s acting.
How do you both handle leaked content?
It’s a huge pain. Anything uploaded to OF gets a watermark. If you find content with that watermark and report it, OF will take it down. We also have DMCA services and lawyers on retainer to handle these things.
How has this profession impacted your personal life and relationship?
The biggest upside is freedom. We can go wherever we want, whenever we want. The downside is that I live this crazy life with all these experiences, and I can’t tell anyone.
Are you worried that at some point she might want to divorce you because she realizes that she’s independent and might not need you anymore?
Not really worried. When we first met, she was not a very independent woman. New country, new culture, new language, I cannot imagine. I basically had to force her to learn to drive even though she was scared. I told her I needed her to be an independent woman because I needed to know she is with me because she loves me, not because she needs me. If she left me now, its because she doesn’t love me, and I’m okay with that. It would suck but thats life.
Do you ever think about leading a better private life with somebody else?
I love her. We were married a few years before she ever went into modeling. We do have a private life and i cannot imagine it being any better.
Do you both have plans for children?
No kids, and we’re not planning on any.
What cars do you each drive? And do you work?
We have 2 cars. A newer pickup that we got to drag a 5th wheel around the US on a month long camping trip. We also drive a 09 Saturn sedan.
My wife doesn’t drive much so she doesn’t mind the older car while we are saving up for a house.
I am a business analyst.
What do you do for fun (hobbies/passions)? What does your wife do for fun?
I love hunting, fishing, camping, the outdoors in general I guess. Headed to Michigan soon the get into the salmon run here soon.
My wife likes the outdoors as well and will tag along on my adventures often. She doesn’t get into the fishing and hunting as much.
We have dog now that we like to spoil with little adventures outdoors too. Otherwise, she loves the spa, and treatments and all kinds of stuff that I don’t get personally. Also, we like to party down when we can. Woot Woot! Right now. League of Legends with the homies, Total war series, WoW for the first time recently, phas, golf with your friends, Rocket league for like a decade now.
What’s her OF?
Lastly, how do you handle the negative comments and judgments from others?
It’s challenging, but we’ve learned to brush off the hate. We focus on our love for each other and the life we’ve built together.
