We’ll go through each of these options and you can determine which option is best for you.
If you really wanted to make money believe it or not you can use Craiglist to sell nude photos of yourself. However, there are a lot of risks and headaches involved with this. Your biggest risk is that your post will be flagged for removal. Even though “nude photos of yourself” are not included in Craigslist’s list of prohibited items for sale it seems like the posts that do show up there do get flagged for removal. Here’s an example. In Google I found this Craiglist’s posting, “Nude photos available”:
Here you can see this person was trying to sell “nude photos of myself for $20.” If you click on the search result you get “this posting has been flagged”:
If your post did manage to stay up then you would have a shot at selling your photos. You could use paypal for payment. When people decide to buy your photos they will paypal you the payment and then you can email them the photos. That’s the ideal situation, but it might be difficult to attract buyers since there’s no guarantee that you’ll email them the photos. Not to say that you would, but I know for me, I’d be weary about sending a random person money for the promise of naked photos.
Amateur Porn Websites
There are a lot of porn websites out there and they are always looking for new models. The good news is they pay really well. The bad news is it’s porn so they aren’t just looking for a naked body. They want some kind of sexual act or implied sexual act. If you are comfortable with that then this isn’t for you. Also, depending on the site, they want higher quality photos so this means self shots with cell phone cameras aren’t going to cut it. Here’s an example of what Starway Models is looking for and what you can expect in terms of payment and benefits:
- Send 3 Photos [this means they have to choose you]
- Shoot video & photos in an exciting environment [you have to take photos with a bunch of strangers while having sex]
- Work with a fun and professional crew [definitely a plus]
- Comfortable with R and XXX [if you aren’t comfortable with this move on to something else]
- Must be 18+
- Top models can earn up to $7,000 dollars for a weekend of shooting [that’s good money]
- Travel and lodging are also taken care of [another plus!]
While the money is good keep in mind you aren’t getting paid for individual photos. You are getting paid to model and they have to choose you. If they don’t choose you then you have ZERO chance of making money. That could be a big obstacle in your quest for naked photo income.
Nude Online Membership Galleries
Nude membership gallery websites are websites where they featured nude models typically done in a tasteful manner and in order to view those photos viewers have to buy a monthly membership. Typically you don’t get paid directly for each photo they use, but you get paid for time spent modeling. Most of these sites are a “celebration of the artistic beauty of the naked female form.” Compared to the porn websites these sites will seem a lot more classy. The good thing is these websites don’t make you do lewd obscene things like regular porn sites. However, the bigger problem is like porn websites they may not want your naked photos. They seem a lot more picky (at least the higher quality websites like Hegre Art) here’s an example of what they are looking for:
Experience is not necessary; however it is good to keep in mind that our ideal candidates are between 18 and 25 years of age and height/weight proportionate. Most importantly, you must be comfortable in your own skin and exhibit a high degree of confidence in front of others…If this sounds like you and you have what it takes to be a model, you will be invited to be photographed by award-winning photographer Petter Hegre, paid a modeling fee, and of course be given prominent exposure here at Hegre-Art.com.
And in case you aren’t sure what the “ideal candidate” looks like rest assured that you if you look anything like the woman below you definitely have a promising career in nude photography.
Unfortunately if you wanted to make money off each of the photos taken of you it doesn’t seem like this is the best place to do it. Normally these websites work directly with photographers.
Create Your Own Membership Website
Rather than joining someone else’s membership site you can be more ambitious and just simply start your own. However, of all the options this is the most challenging for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is all the stuff you have to manage. You have to:
- Build your own membership website
- Setup a payment system
- Market your website
- Manage the website
- Handle customer service
- And much much more
You have to do all that and also find time to take naked photos of yourself. On top of that, even if you manage to do all of the above there is no guarantee anyone will join your website. All that time and investment potentially wasted.
Extra Lunch Money was created to put the power back into the hands of the models and people taking their own nude photos. We looked at all the options and find a simple way for people to sell naked pictures of themselves. Nude pictures are just one part of the Extra Lunch Money vision of enabling people to literally sell the best parts of themselves…and if that happens to be you naked then more power to you.
What makes Extra Lunch Money different than all the other websites?
- It’s a marketplace: We aren’t a membership site or porn site. We showcase who you are and connect you with people who want to buy photos or other services involving you (this does NOT mean prostitution).
- Not just nude photos: While we allow you to sell custom nude photos we also allow you to sell non-nude photos of yourself: pictures of you in a bikini, school girl outfit, Scooby Doo costume, etc… It’s up to you.
- You control everything: You set the prices, you decide who will take your pictures (probably yourself if you are shy), and you decide what type of photos you are comfortable selling. Extra Lunch Money is just here to handle to transaction and make sure you get paid.
We are still adding a lot of the functionality to the website, but if you are interested in joining, don’t hesitate to sign up by visiting Extra Lunch Money.
