Porn star Belle Delphine makes $1.2 million in a month from OnlyFans, and she plans to ‘milk’ her fans for more

Reading Time: 2 minutes

In June 2020, Belle Delphine announced in a viral YouTube video that she planned to make a “big bag” — slang for a lot of money — on OnlyFans. Six months later, she shared a screenshot of her November OnlyFans earnings with Insider that shows she makes $1.2 million a month. Mission accomplished. 

OnlyFans has exploded in popularity as more than 450,000 creators, many of whom are sex workers, sell direct-to-consumer content. Delphine, 21, has become a phenomenon in the online porn world alongside the growth of OnlyFans, and it made perfect sense for her to start using the platform in 2020. 

Delphine is well-practiced in the art of lewd photos, which are sexual in nature but don’t technically qualify as porn. She first built an audience on Instagram, where her strange, sexy “kawaii” (Japanese for “cute”) photos attracted more than 4.5 million followers. But Delphine’s online antics, which included selling $30 jars of her own used “gamer girl” bathwater, got her permanently banned from Instagram in July 2019. 

On OnlyFans, Delphine first sold content of a similar nature that was semi-nude or partially censored. On Christmas Day 2020, she released her first hardcore porn on OnlyFans.

Delphine is best known for being a provocateur, but her large social media following also makes her somewhat of an influencer. She’s not the only influencer or content creator to pursue OnlyFans. YouTubers like Tana Mongeau and Erika Costell have launched successful OnlyFans accounts, and celebrities like Cardi B and Bella Thorne have also marketed behind-the-scenes content on the platform. 

Delphine told Insider that she planned to “milk” her porn career indefinitely, but that she would consider other online career paths, like Twitch streaming, once her content’s appeal wears off. She cautions other young provocateurs who are looking to make the same kind of “bag” that she secured from OnlyFans, since Delphine’s pre-existing fanbase is why she’s able to profit so much from the platform. 

“People can see me and see my numbers and think, ‘Oh, she’s doing really well so that means I can do really well,'” Delphine said in an interview with Insider.

“For every one successful girl you see, there are thousands of other girls working really hard and not earning anything.”
