People hate my side hustle – but I LOVE it… I made £24k a year and I’ve tripled my pension

A PENSIONER who joined OnlyFans in her sixties says her haters can get stuffed – because she’s earning £24,000 a-year doing it.

Lesley Banks, 63, flogs saucy snaps and fun content to legions of fans who came across her lingerie Instagram posts and wanted more.

So three years ago, boyfriend Andrew, 58, signed her up to OnlyFans and the pair never looked back.

Lesley, from Berkshire, told The Sun: “I earn three times my pension, about £2,000-a-month, but I only do an hour to an hour-and-a-half each day.

“I will send topless photographs out, that doesn’t bother me, I don’t ask for money, I don’t necessarily need it at this stage in my life.

“The guys give me tips and treat me like a therapist, they say I look amazing for 63, obviously that does your ego good, why wouldn’t it?”

Lesley, who is a classically trained singer, ran a theatre school putting youngsters into West End productions before retiring.

Looking to fill her days and whet her appetite for socialising and getting creative, she realised OnlyFans offered the perfect solution.

The mum, who has a son, 35 and a daughter, 29, explained: “Before I entered the world of OnlyFans I assumed it was for women who had a good body and it was all about sharing sexy stuff.

“But I have never done anything pornographic or against my own moral compass.”

Lesley – who has 133,000 Instagram followers – insists her racier photos form only a fraction of her content.

She spends much of her time writing comedy with fans, sharing music and even funny memes.

“It’s really just chatting, since Covid, people are more lonely, I fill in little gaps in their lives”, the Welsh Valleys native says.

Boyfriend Andrew is fully supportive of Lesley’s endeavours and even takes some of her photos.

The pensioner has never had a bad experience on OnlyFans and will never ask if her subscribers are married or have families, unless they tell her.

“I get to know about their lives, I have quite a few high powered people who just like to chat”, she says.

She even has wives of fans chatting to her, which she says is a “bizarre experience” but stresses it’s none of her business to judge what people get up to behind closed doors.

Reflecting on her new found stardom, she says OnlyFans gives her so much more than just extra cash – though she admits it does help.

The mum added: “People tend to think life after 60 isn’t terribly good, I’m finding it’s amazing, I don’t feel invisible, I’m just loving it!

“I never would have believed I’d have made a good income from OnlyFans at 63 but I am loving the financial flexibility it has given me.

“I have bought a caravan down in the New Forest.”

Despite the good fortune OnlyFans has given Lesley, she fears becoming a “sad person” if she spent anymore than an hour-a-day on the site.

“I don’t want to be living my life virtually all the time, I want to dip into it then go and do some exercise, read a book”, she explained.

Looking to the future, Lesley hopes to carry on creating content and may even branch out into motivational speaking and influencer marketing.

But she stresses: “I would implore anyone at any age to find the fun in their every day. Laughter is so important.

“And as I’ve gotten older my confidence has grown. Now I don’t give a damn what people think of me.”
