Both lower the levels of stress-causing hormones cortisone and adrenaline. Both cause a surge of endorphins, which relax and de-stress. In fact, along with chocolate, laughter and sex are two of the most immediate ways a person can chemically alter their mood in a positive way.
Now OnlyFans.com, best known for its adult content (although 35% of content has always been non-adult, including things such as sport, fitness, music lessons and nutrition, yet the tabloids have very much focussed more on the former) is getting in on the um… action, adding a number of comedians to its roster of content creators.
OnlyFans.com was set up to be a space where people could create whatever content their fans wanted to see, and with an over-18s only policy, the restrictions on what comics can and cannot say are far less limited than on Facebook, YouTube or Instagram.
This means that performers are potentially able to create something more akin to their usual comedy club material, with the freedom to rant and swear and crack eyebrow raising jokes should they wish to. And with 23 million subscribers, with numbers during lockdown growing by up to 100,000 a day, comics are hoping to not only direct current fans to a new way to watch their content, but also to find a brand-new audience along the way.
Today a slew of new comedy accounts has been launched – meaning people can click the links to the pages today, and content will begin to be regularly uploaded over the coming weeks and months. New comedy recruits are:
DUSTY LIMITS: Dusty Limits is a singer, comic and cabaret artist and one of the leading figures on the new cabaret scene.

SANDRA LONDON: Upon entering the world of drag cabaret, Sandra realised it was the perfect way to get the attention she’d always craved and make some cash that didn’t involve lying on a mac in the back of a Fiat Punto. After 30 years of singing, cracking jokes and shaking her money maker all over the place, Sandra is still one of the best performers on the scene. Now she’s bringing her many talents to OnlyFans. Sandra says: “I’ve been working the scene for nearly three decades and I’m known for filthy fun that’s certainly not family friendly, so I was thrilled to be asked to join OnlyFans as that’s the place for me. I’m home at last! I can’t wait to see what people think of my shows and I hope the OnlyFans audiences will get what I do. I’ve always loved performing live on stage so I can interact with my audiences, but the Go Live option on OnlyFans means I can do the same, but it gets me beamed directly into people’s homes. So lock up your silverware… and your husbands too” https://onlyfans.com/sandralondon
