(Chicago, IL / February 8, 2023) — Elaina St. James, OnlyFans’ most popular content creator over the age of 55, explains the secret to her professional success on the platform in a revealing new interview with Business Insider.
The 5’10” brunette beauty, who dreamed of success as print and runway model as a teen, has earned $630,000 over the past two years via her 3,400 subscribers by simply being herself: a “wholesome, funny, positive, smiling, a little quirky Midwest mom”.
St. James spent her formative years in a series of sales and office jobs that kept her financially afloat but unfulfilled, but in April 2021, after seeing others’ incredible financial success with the wildly-popular social service during the pandemic, she left the world of ‘normal’ jobs and made the leap to OnlyFans as well.
Now enjoying a fan base of enthusiastic followers of all ages that keep her busy with a constant stream of fresh content requests, St. James says that being able to pay for a new car, life insurance, vacations, retirement and her son’s college fund is a blessing. “I wouldn’t have been able to afford it” without OnlyFans, she says.
While she admits that being called an inspiration by younger, up & coming creators is a nice job perk – “it makes me feel so much better about myself” – she jokes that she is grateful to her teenage son for maintaining a practical levity about her online fame at home. “He rolls his eyes and calls it cringy.”
