A 20-year-old woman who grew up on food stamps reveals she is now wealthy from selling photos of her hairy body.
The woman who goes by Cherry The Mistress online said after living on food stamps, she worked in a coffee shop before leaving her job to start selling photos online.
She added in an interview to DailyStar that this decision has completely changed her life.
Earlier this year, she celebrated making her first $500,000 by selling hairy nudes.
The 20-year-old, who boasts more than 85,000 followers on Twitter, started selling her photos after moving out of her mother’s house when she was starting college.
Dubbing herself a “no shave babe”, she works to produce hairy content, which basically means she doesn’t shave her private parts.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, Cherry said: “Sometimes it doesn’t even feel real if I am being honest – maybe because I work so much I never have time to really take it all in.
“But I do feel incredibly grateful, especially since I grew up poor.
“I was raised by a single, immigrant mother and for a while we lived on food stamps, so I never imagined that I would even be making this much money.”
She continued: “It’s pretty uncommon to make a living wage doing this kind of work, because it is incredibly hard, way harder than people think.”
On the flipside, Cherry explained there are also creators who make over $100,000 a month – even though it’s very rare.
She said it’s “crazy” how much money some people do rake in, even though it’s not often you see someone who takes home thousands each month.
Cherry said she made the decision to become a content creator after she moved out and realised she needed to find a way to keep up with the ever-growing bills.
This made her think it may be a good idea to take the plunge and try it out.
Her dedication to the new work led her to quit her job making coffee, and she even dropped out of college, as she ended up making so much money in what started out as a side-hustle.
Cherry said: “I think a huge reason why business has been doing better is because in the spring a lot of people in the US get their taxes back, and are recovering financially from the holiday season.
“But I also have been really focusing a lot on building my social media presence, and it has been paying off!”
More women are choosing to forego shaving their body hairs and have been vocal about it, with many showing it off on social media.
Holly Betty is another woman popular for making money by creating content around her hairy body.
She said trolls call her “unclean” but she embraces her natural look and insists she can still be hot while keeping her body hair unshaved.
She added that her natural look has brought her income that she is now able to buy “better clothes and better everything”.
