7 Signs You Have An OnlyFans Addiction

OnlyFans seems like a dream come true to many, especially to content creators. But that's far from the truth.

As of January 2021, the average OnlyFans content creator makes $180 dollars a month. And that amount is slowly going down as the market saturates with new content creators every day.

The more money spent by an OnlyFans consumer, the more lonely and addicted they tend to be.

Today, I want to focus on the latter group, the consumers of OnlyFans.

If that is you, you are awesome.

Not just because it's true, but because you care about your well-being. You are introspective enough to consider whether or not you have a problem that needs to be addressed in your life.

These are the 7 signs of OnlyFans addiction, which are derived from the criteria found in porn and internet addiction.

Without further ado, let's get to it.

Signs Of OnlyFans Addiction

1. More niche and taboo content is needed

So that one subscription wasn't enough to feel satisfied.

But what about having three subscriptions? What about having five of them and you give tips often?

Does it feel like you need more content, but as soon as you get it, you slowly get bored of it?

There is a reason we are never satisfied with what we have. Our brains provide us with an innate desire for novelty.

This is why when you get that new lewd video from xBunny69xo, you end up desensitized to it and are left wanting more.

This is a clear sign that you have built a tolerance to the OnlyFans content you currently have. Building a tolerance is one of the neurological effects found in both internet and porn addiction.

2. You overspent your budget for OnlyFans

You shouldn't cut back on your groceries or your data plan in order to spend more money on OnlyFans.

If you exceed your monthly budget for OnlyFans, you have likely become more impulsive as a result of OnlyFans addiction.

Impulsively is another neurological effect found in both internet and porn addiction.

In fact, a 2012 study showed the severity of internet addiction is positivity correlated with impulsivity. So the more addicted you to OnlyFans, the more impulsive you tend to be.

3. You frequently check your phone for OnlyFans notifications

With addiction, comes sensitization to cues that trigger your desire for your fix.

One clear cue is OnlyFans notifications.

When you see the notification that Thot_Chomp2 replied, you get a nice rush of chemicals in your brain similar to drug addiction.

But what happens when that vibration from your phone is just a text from Steve asking about the group project work due on Wednesday?

Anger. Irritability. Fuck you Steve.

If you have been in a similar situation, you are likely overinvested in OnlyFans.

4. You get upset when content creators take too long to reply

So here you are, waiting for BigTittyG0thGirl to reply to the compliment you gave on her small boobs.

Two hours go by... damn. Now it's eight hours, the fuck is going on here?

One day later you get the "lol thx" response.

Sorry bro, but she's likely too busy replying to the 53 other people who said that to her.

If you are too invested in the outcome, you are too invested in OnlyFans.

5. You built a love obsession over a content creator

I'm sorry, but you aren't special to cumGuzzlerJane. You are just client #920 to her.

She is not here for your personality, she's here for your money.

It may truly seem like she is flirting to you, but that is likely far from the truth. Remember, she is being nice and flirty with you because you are paying for that experience.

And the more subscribers she has, the more likely you aren't talking to her or even a girl for that matter.

It's highly likely that she outsourced her responses to a third party in order to save time and money. Less time replying means more content and time to spend with her boyfriend.

I'm being an asshole here because I don't want you to suffer. I truly believe this will only lead to heartache and wasting your time.

6. You've given up on getting a significant other IRL

If you try to get your needs for intimacy and connection met with a virtual girlfriend online, you most definitely have a limiting belief to overcome.

You aren't fulfilling your love needs, you are simulating them. And it's mediocre, short-lived fulfillment at best.

You can't have sex or cuddle with the content creator. And most importantly, you can't build a truly intimate relationship with them.

An intimate relationship, like every other enriching relationship, requires equal reciprocity and genuine connection. OnlyFans doesn't give you that at all, it's all superficial interaction.

OnlyFans is merely a bandage put over your unmet love needs. It doesn't provide you with the satisfaction an intimate relationship provides, you are always left wanting the real thing.

I'm not here saying that personality is all that matters or any other bullshit many people say. You and me both know physical attractive plays the major role in initial attraction.

But even if you are short and have other genetics features that filter out majority of your dating pool options, giving up completely means a guaranteed 0% chance of having a significant other.

Life is unfair and unforgiving, but that doesn't mean you should give up. You have to work with the cards you are dealt with.

That means slowly learning how to accept the things you can't change and focusing on the things that you can change to make yourself a more attractive candidate to date.

I know I know, it's much easier said than done.

But I'll tell you one thing, it's definitely more fulfilling having hope and working towards getting a significant other instead of giving that all up for BaeMary69's male responder sending you generic good morning DMs.

7. OnlyFans is used to cope with loneliness

If there is a clear answer in knowing whether or not you have a problem with OnlyFans, this is it.

Loneliness is by far the most common reason people pay for OnlyFans subscriptions. It's also the biggest indication you have some work to do on yourself.

Loneliness is hard. It's an innate part of human nature that we are all burdened to suffer from. For some, it's much more severe than the majority can even fathom.

Unfortunately, OnlyFans is one of the worst places to overcome feelings of loneliness. You never truly feel relief from your loneliness using OnlyFans, you're just consuming salt water.

Again, it's because it's all just superficial interaction incentivized by your wallet. You aren't truly connecting with the content creators. At best, you amuse them once and a while.

While loneliness causes us suffering, it doesn't mean that those feelings are there just to fuck with us. It's there to tell you that you've got some problem(s) to solve.

OnlyFans is merely a symptom of your loneliness.

And it may not even be as obvious as getting a significant other. It could really mean you have low self-esteem and no direction for your life. As a result, you may be codependent on others for happiness and are uncomfortable being alone.


There you have it, 7 signs of OnlyFans addiction.

Keep in mind, I've never had an OnlyFans. I am basing these signs off the criteria for diagnosing internet and porn addiction. Like with everything you read online, you must use your best judgement.

If you found out you don't have a problem, great! You can assuredly continue doing what makes you happy.

If you found out you have a problem, great! I highly suggest you take action to stop your OnlyFans addiction.
