Tyler Posey has said doing OnlyFans has been “mentally draining” and that he shies away from nudity because it makes him “feel like an object”.
The Teen Wolf heartthrob gave a candid interview to E!’s The Rundown where he revealed what it’s like to be on OnlyFans, where he has more than 123,000 likes.
Last year, the 29-year-old announced his jump to the the peer-to-peer subscription app, where people pay for content such as video of him sitting on a stool, naked.
He called on fans to come “get wet” with him – around 5,000 people subscribed in less than a day.
But as much as Posey has spoken with pride about his body and being nude, he won’t be baring all on OnlyFans anytime soon.
“OnlyFans is bizarre,” he admitted, “it’s really, sort of mentally draining
“You really feel like an object on OnlyFans. I’m trying my hardest to be artistic as possible with the content I put out ’cause I don’t want it to just be porn, you know?
“That’s not what I do and I don’t want to take it away from the people that are doing that. I just want to be artistic and stay in touch with my fans.”
Tyler Posey: ‘I just can’t pose naked and take myself seriously’
Much of Tyler Posey’s OnlyFans content leans on the creative side, including a series directed by fellow OnlyFans user Bella Thorne that saw him pose semi-naked in a chef’s apron, skate around and strum a guitar in a metallic suit.
He added: “If I’m going to be somewhat nude, I want to not take myself seriously and be kind of funny.
“I just can’t pose naked and take myself seriously. It’s weird, it feels stupid, I feel like an object. I’m still figuring out my footing in it and we’ll see where it goes.”
His pivot to OnlyFans, however, immediately rankled some sex workers. Many are growing increasingly frustrated with already affluent celebrities joining the platform that is a financial lifeline to many.
Many also offset how people responded to Posey’s jump to OnlyFans – mainly by thirsty subscribing – to that of Thorne, who suffered stinging criticism. The latest example, some fans felt, of sexism and double standards.
