One thing about the pandemic is it opened our eyes to new ways of making money outside the traditional 9-5.
Some women have set the bar for creativity by boosting their income stripping in the metaverse. You read right; as we continue to transition into the virtual realm, women are sharing how they have already begun to capitalize on industries within the metaverse.
Metaverse 3D avatar Vixen Mamia Orio claims she makes over $100,000 a year creating adult content with just her avatar.
A virtual adult entertainment industry where women earn money without having to partake in traditional sex work if they don’t want to or show their faces.
“If you don’t [have] to show your real self, and you just have to show your fake self or fake avatar, [I’m not] mad at it. It’s easy money, and honestly, this is just another stream of income that you can curate in the verse,” TikTok Ashley France notes.
Sex work in the metaverse could be the next big thing in an industry that has already thrived online in recent years thanks to OnlyFans.
OnlyFans also provided a platform for sex workers to find more autonomy in their careers instead of existing only in the controversial porn industry. The metaverse could afford those in the industry the same freedoms.
The new trend of earning money has sparked an interest among many TikToker users, and many were curious about how this works.
France said the first step is to buy a VR headset to experience the met averse and then
set up an account on the app and link the VR headset.
The last thing to do would be to create an avatar to create a virtual presence. From there, the avatar can become a dancer or a stripper.
“There’s a search bar where you can search different restaurants, you can literally type in restaurants, clothing stores, whatever it is that you want to do,” France added.
“So obviously for what I mentioned being a video vixen or a spicy dancer, you would type in something like ‘a spicy dancer club’, it pops up, you click one. One of the most popular ones is called club ruby. You go in there, you talk to the people, and you get hired.”
There is also a payment option within the app so users can get paid virtually.
The hiring process is similar to what it would be in real life, but because it’s the met averse. Luckily, one can create what they want to look like and not link it to their own image — thus eliminating some safety concerns.
