Brand Protection for Models & Content Creators

Beyond the Classroom: 2 millennial teachers were punished for posting adult content on OnlyFans.

28-year-old Brianna Coppage and 31-year-old Megan Gaither, two English teachers in a small Missouri town have experienced the negative aspects head-on around the stigma of being an adult content creator after-hours. They shared a secret, both being active creators on OnlyFans, which in the relatively low-paying profession like teaching this extra money came in handy, though has cost them dearly once suspended from their teaching job at the high school. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought so much improvement for adult creators, as the industry has been booming since. Being able to provide a steady and significant source of income should not result in occupational discrimination or the fact that being a sex worker is a taboo or something to be shameful of.
I do not regret joining OnlyFans, Coppage told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Gaither, who also coached cheerleading, said she used her OF income to pay off student loans. Using an alias or not showing her face was not enough to convince the high school of keeping the two staff members on board. Fortunately, the publicity that came with the revelation of their secret was that their incomes have increased significantly since, the teachers revealed to several news outlets. Are they victims of employment discrimination? Community members have had varying reactions. “As a society, if we’ve come to think that it’s OK for children to be seeing their teacher having sex, that’s outrageous,” said Kurt Moritz, the father of a 7-year-old boy in the district. “We shouldn’t be giving children an extra reason to fantasize over their teachers.” At the same time, other people highlight the need to protect children from harmful material while still ensuring that educators have a reasonable income. What rights do employers have to intervene in the personal lives of their staff? Becoming the moral police will result in even more discussion and where will it end? As our reliance on technology grows, these types of occurrences make us think about how our boundaries, both personal and professional, are changing. When discussions progress, it’s important to think about how people’s choices may affect others and the world at large. Isn’t it time for the world to get rid of the stigma around sex work in the 21st century, as it clearly brings a lot of pleasure to many. Source:
