- Lauren Spencer is a 47 year old OnlyFans model and is in the top 0.5% of earners on the platform.

- She earns around $16,000 a month and receives requests for roles as Diana.
In less than two years, Lauren Spencer has broken into the top 0.5% of earners on OnlyFans, which she said puts her on a par with Princess Diana.
Before switching to content creation, she owned a cleaning company with her husband for over 10 years, but when the pandemic struck, her work dried up due to restrictions.
“We went from normal income to zero overnight,” he told Insider. So he signed up for OnlyFans to earn money sitting at home.
The 47-year-old used to get in trouble doing webcam-modelling work, where viewers would join a chat room and pay to watch explicit content live. But the cleaning business isn’t working out anymore, with fans saying Spencer looks like Princess Diana, suggesting she just try the fences.
“I often get comments from fans saying, ‘You remind me of him.’ Every time I’m told that, I’m flattered,” Spencer said.
The OnlyFans creator said that she would sometimes dress as Diana upon request from her fans. Now she is earning an average of $16,000 per month.
“When people ask me for custom movies, I do that, but it’s not how I dress day to day,” she told Insider.
She customized a top and skirt to recreate Diana’s “Revenge Dress,” An off-the-shoulder black dress Diana wore to a 1994 event on the day her then-husband, King Charles, admitted to cheating on her.
She said she works more than 60 hours a week as an OnlyFans creator, which translates to about nine hours a day, including weekends.
Spencer said the majority of his earnings come from subscriptions: “So far this month, I’ve made over $16,000 and of that about $15,350 is from subscriptions, and about $725 is from tips.”
Her day consists of answering customer messages in the morning, taking photos and videos and livestreaming on Instagram and other platforms like TikTok to market herself and attract new customers.
She learned through trial and error to shoot, edit, and upload her own content using the iMovie video-editing app.
“Promotion is the be all and end all, and social media is the primary way,” she said. She uses hashtags that are relevant to her target audience and comments on other creators’ posts to boost their engagement.
Fans sometimes ask Spencer to pretend they are King Charles and tell them “naughty stories” about how she’s cheating on them with drivers or butlers, she said.
She states that she does “tasteful nudity”, reads erotic stories, and compares her content style to “old school flirting”. She also provides up-close photos to fans for a subscription fee of $9.99 per month.
He said that one fan even went so far as to send Spencer a photo of Diana with every message she sent on OnlyFans.
She added, “The fact that I remind a lot of people of Diana has certainly helped. For some people it is strange to see a proper and decent woman like her in her underwear.”
The advantages of being an onlyfans model “far outweighed” Spencer’s drawbacks. “I think OnlyFans is sometimes portrayed as the last stop for women who can’t do anything else or who don’t have any skills or are desperate, but that’s just not true,” she said. Said. “I love it. I have complete control over the content I put on.”
Spencer said his goal is to save enough money to open an animal sanctuary.
She said the downside is that she is now working longer hours, and that sometimes people stigmatize sex work. “I have less time now than in the cleaning business, but I love it,” she said.
She prefers not to employ staff anymore, saying “It used to be the biggest curse of my life, because people didn’t turn up for work and problems escalated.”
“It’s far more fun, it’s not physically taxing on my body and there’s no limit to how much I can earn,” Spencer said.
