Actress and comedian Syd Wilder said her newly found success as an OnlyFans model was inspired by a mocking comment from an ex who was breaking things off with her.
According to Ladbible, Syd Wilder became an OnlyFans model last April and has spent the last year rising through the ranks to become part of the top 0.6% of creators on the website.
This success is thanks to a mean spirited comment from an ex, she tells the outlet.
“I was going through a break-up, and he was like, ‘Well, join OnlyFans then,’ and I was like, ‘I will,’” Wilder recalled.
Syd set up an account on the content subscription site last April, and within a year, she has reached the top one percent – or to be precise, top 0.6 percent – of creators on OnlyFans. She owes this success, in part, to the sneering advice of her ex.
“And so I did – and I wasn’t expecting it to be successful,” Syd Wilder said of her newly-found career as an OnlyFans model.
“I’m making enough to like cover my bills and everything, but you’ve got to buy lingerie and different things in order to keep your customers happy,” she explained.
“It’s a business, just like anything else. That’s what people don’t understand. Like, it’s a full time job.”
According to The Daily Star, Wilder has also found a way to use the site via monetizing so called d*ck pics, previously an unwanted issue in her entertainment career.
She continued: “I would get d**k pics when I was doing stand up and all that stuff.”The Daily Star
“I actually made a ‘d*ckumentary’ as my closer for my show, it was like a montage of all the d**k pics that I was sent,” Syd Wilder said of her comedy career prior to her OnlyFans model work.
“Anyway, I didn’t ask for any of this, all unsolicited. So I’ve been kind of a little disturbed by all that, you know… but I’m just kind of comfortable with getting them now. Not that I enjoy them. But I’m not fazed by anything. Let’s just put it that way.”
She’s now found a way to monetize the previously unwanted pictures by charging people to send them.
Wilder charges $50 for a written rating of the picture and $100 for a voice note, per picture.

“I was like, I want to make money off of this,” OnlyFans model Syd Wilder says of her rating system.
“If I could have made money off all the d*cks that I saw prior to this, I could be a millionaire.”
OnlyFans has become a profitable venture for a number of people looking for other lines of work during the pandemic.
The Mirror reported that model Eliza Rose Watson, who stole money from her mother and was homeless at one point, is now a millionaire thanks to her work on the platform.
She has now racked up £1million from the site in the past 12 months, crediting OpenFans for keeping her “sane and sober” as the pandemic took a toll on some many people’s mental health.The Mirror
