She quit being an ICU nurse to make six figures on OnlyFans

« I’ve always seen myself in nursing, » explains Allie Rae.

It was the hard part getting there. At 17, she enlisted in the Navy and served as a privateer, assisting the admirals and writing awards literature whenever someone received a medal. She married her husband when she was 18 and they had two children. Rae – who uses her stage name – decided to leave the Navy in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina. She had been stationed in New Orleans during the disaster, and witnessing the devastation and loss of life firsthand had taken its toll. After a brief stint in marketing, she enrolled in nursing school and eventually ended up in the maternity ward of a top Massachusetts hospital.

And she soon realized that she had a gift for helping people.

“I started labor and delivery where I always wanted to be,” says Rae. « Then I realized that every time something went wrong with a baby, I was incredibly nervous, so I forced myself to shadow myself in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] to overcome my fear and eventually fell in love with her. I can say with full confidence that I was a fantastic NICU nurse.”

Rae worked 14 hour days in the NICU, which she describes as « exhausting for my body » and « emotionally draining ». But she loved your work. To blow off steam — and to entertain himself — Rae began posting revealing shots of himself on Instagram and The Chive under the alias « Allie Rae. »

In December 2020, after almost nine years on the job, six nurses from her department came across some of her photos online and reported them to their boss.

« They notified my manager and I was called into the office about their social media policy, » Rae shares. « It got uncomfortable when I felt like people were more focused on my performance outside of the hospital than my performance in the hospital. »

Because she used a pseudonym, didn’t identify her place of work, and didn’t post anything too risqué, Rae was fired with a warning.

Three months later, in March 2021, curious nurses found Raes OnlyFans.

« They subscribed to my OnlyFans account and paid to take a screenshot of it and bring it to my manager, » Rae recalls. « It was like mean girls for adults. »

« They called the principal and it was like, ‘You have to get rid of this account or we can’t let you work here.’ That Yes, really bothered me,” Rae admits.

So she quit.

« The stigma against people in the sex industry and OnlyFans drove a really good nurse out of the hospital, » says Rae. « I didn’t even need the money — I made more money doing OnlyFans than I did as a nurse and I just did it because I loved it — but when I became ‘the girl who makes OnlyFans’, it tore me up. ”

« I was just a typical girl… »

Thanks to her bikini pics on Instagram and The Chive, Rae had amassed a decent online following. In the early months of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic turned the lives of people around the world upside down, OnlyFans exploded as lonely, caged men flocked (mainly) to the adult subscription site to quench their sexual thirst to breastfeed. Rae started receiving DMs from her Instagram followers telling her to open an OnlyFans account, so she and her husband thought let’s see what the fuss is about. They launched their OnlyFans in September 2020 and the feedback has been, well, extremely positive.

« I posted a few photos and by the end of the day I had 20 subscribers, » she recalls. « So I posted every day — or every other day — and by the end of our first month we had made $8,000, which exceeded my monthly nursing pay. And it was COVID, so it wasn’t the most comfortable time at work. To see so much money coming in with so little effort…” she murmurs and falls silent.

« And it was COVID, so it wasn’t the most comfortable time at work. To see so much money coming in with so little effort…

“It was a whole new frontier. I was just a typical girl, » she adds. « The way it felt, my husband and I were married very young, so it was liberating. »

What started with a handful of nude photos has evolved into far more racy images and pay-per-view videos – including Rae masturbating and engaging in sexual acts with her husband. She calls her OnlyFans a « behind-the-scenes version of our lives. »

“We definitely broadened our horizons from the start,” she says. « For example, I’ve never seen us sell videos of us having sex to strangers online, but now we do. In addition, there were many nightly conversations and joint discussions.”

Rae, 37, now pulls in an average of $65,000 to $75,000 a month from her OnlyFans through a combination of subscriptions, which cost $12.99, and the pay-per-view sex clips you watch between the ages of 7 and Cost $30 each (The Daily Beast viewed documents confirming Rae’s OnlyFans earnings.)

« We’re trying to provide a stunning experience and I think that’s been a big part of our success during the pandemic, » Rae explains. « It’s a full-time job for me now, but I never want to feel like I’m ‘selling’ myself online. We’re just having fun and enjoying ourselves.”

While Rae’s husband has always been closely involved in her OnlyFans activities, their three children, aged 12, 17 and 18, have been largely kept in the dark. Only recently have she and her husband somehow broke the news to her two eldest children.

« We took the two older kids over to dinner and I told them I do influencer work and they said, ‘We get it. It’s all right. We know it,” Rae recalls. “It was an unspoken thing that I’m sure they understand where we’re trying. They were pretty open about it. And we’ve blocked her – and her friends – on all our platforms. »

Rae and her husband currently reside in Florida, where they relocated after she left the hospital in March, just months before receiving her nursing PhD. They’re considering buying a property down there with all of OnlyFans’ money, but are so flush with it that they’re « not sure where to put the rest. »

Despite her wealth, Rae misses nursing – and is still haunted by the way she was cruelly thrown out of the hospital.

« I didn’t like the way I was looked at and treated and labeled. All postponed,” she claims. « But nursing takes a toll, and after I get over the fact, ‘How could everyone be so mean?’ I realized that I could spend more time with my kids, making them breakfast every morning and being there for dinner every night. Those were things I could never do as a nurse with a 14 hour day. So there were a lot of positive results.”

« I still feel a little sad for him, » she continues. « That’s going to come back a lot because I had a passion for what I was doing – to do something worthwhile. It’s the purpose I’ll miss the most. I won’t say what I do now is empty because I give a lot of advice to people who are struggling with their relationships… but I miss nursing. The wound is still fresh.”

She also finds it odd how much more she’s making from OnlyFans compared to her much busier days as a nurse.

« It’s very, very little money to save a life every day — especially in the NICU, » she says with a deep sigh. « It really opened my eyes. There is definitely an underestimate for nurses.”
