Marcela Alonso has never been in higher demand. The 41-year-old Latina, who calls New York City her home, has been inundated with OnlyFans requests during the pandemic—and nearly all of them, she says, are coming from young, lonely men craving intimacy.
“They come to an older woman because it became very hard for these younger guys to date, and they do have sexual needs. But I’m also giving them this guidance on what to do. One of my fans was asking if they should go back to school for their master’s, and another wanted dating tips,” she says, adding, “I’ve made more money now than I ever did when I was younger.”
According to Alonso, she’s been pulling in about $20,000 a month during the pandemic off of OnlyFans alone—though a chunk of that goes toward paying for marketing costs and assistants to help manage her accounts. The surge began in March and April at the start of the pandemic, where she says she was “waking up with $300 requests for video calls” and “had to raise my price because of the heavy demand.”
