Mum struggling to eat began stripping to pay bills – and is now a millionaire

A new mum who was struggling to even have enough money to eat is now a millionaire after turning to stripping on OnlyFans.

Karmen Karma, 30, from California, US, and her husband Alex had just welcomed their daughter Vienna but were finding it difficult to get by on a single salary.

Although Karmen’s husband was working full time in the Navy while stationed in Hawaii, the new mum often found herself scrimping on food.

She even had to turn to the government’s Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) scheme for help.

However, after stripping off on OnlyFans, Karmen is now raking in the cash.

“We had enough to pay the rent and bills but when it came to buying food, there was never much left and I would spend hours trying to calculate everything,” Karmen told Jam Press.

“Every penny was accounted for, I had just enough to eat but obviously with a new baby and breastfeeding I needed nutritious food – and lots of it.

“I felt like I was always hungry.

“Luckily we qualified for the government’s WIC program, which provided help for the baby.”

Sick of struggling to get by each month, Karmen brought up the idea of working in the sex industry again with her husband.

She continued: “From the ages of 21 to 25, I had worked as an adult actress but had grown weary of the business.

“There’s a dark side to the world of porn that not many people talk about or maybe experience but leaving that side of my life had been a huge deal for me.

“A company I’d previously worked with offered me a huge deal for a small amount of filming so I decided to go for it.

“The night before filming I lay in bed wide awake, I couldn’t sleep, I was so nervous about going back to that work again.

“I worried what people would think.”

Karmen began doing the occasional shoot to boost the family’s income but the reality of going back to work in porn was having a heavy impact on her mental health.

She said: “I didn’t like being on sets anymore or being away from my baby.

“I’ve got nothing against working in adult films and some people love it.

“For me I just felt like I’d outgrown it. It really got me down every time I went to shoot a scene.”

The mum carried on shooting the occasional scene so the family could get by but when the pandemic hit and the film industry was shut down, she admits it was almost a relief.

She said: “I think a lot of people felt a sense of relief when some industries were forced to shut during lockdown and they couldn’t work.

“However, then you immediately start worrying about money.”

Karmen turned her attention to OnlyFans, which was something she felt more positive about as it could all be done at home.

The model said: “I started working online and was soon making more money than I ever had in the sex industry.

“As much as it’s about posting sexy content, a lot of it is about interacting with my followers – that’s where I earn most of my money.

“I can earn $300 (£218) a session sexting with just one guy, which can easily turn into $160,000 (£116,000) a month.”

Karmen, who also shares sexy snaps with her 41,300 followers on Instagram ( now pockets an eye-watering $2million ( £1.4million) a year by posting sexy snaps and chatting with people online.

The couple also welcomed another daughter five months ago but it hasn’t stopped Karmen from working hard for her family.

She said: “I’ve already paid for both of my daughters' college funds, they both have savings accounts too that I put everything into.

“I don’t want them to ever have to worry about money.

“I hope my girls will respect the decision I made and the work I do. I hope they’ll be open-minded about it.

“I’m not fussed about them being doctors or lawyers, they can be anything they want.

“I would like them to be their own bosses though, be entrepreneurs.

“Working for myself and earning my own money has given me such a sense of pride and accomplishment.

“If either of my daughters wanted to work in the sex industry I would support them all the way but I would tell them about my experience and the risks it has.

“It’s not for everyone but it’s given me a dream life.”
