Onlyfans Content Creators & Body Dysmorphia

Onlyfans Content Creators & Body Dysmorphia

We all know that the internet is filled with content, but the vast majority of creators have a lot going on behind the scenes.. And yet, there are some people who are able to make a living doing what they love. How do they do it?

In this article, we will be placing more of a focus on OnlyFans & Instagram content creators, the same applies to content creators on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook - or anywhere you broadcast or livestream!

The rise of social media has made it easier than ever to compare ourselves to others and actually develop body dysmorphia. The problem is that we're not just comparing ourselves to friends and celebrities on social media, we're also comparing ourselves to the curated Instagram feeds of people we don't know. And it's taking a toll on our mental health.

Body dysmorphia, also known as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), is a mental health condition in which someone becomes obsessed with the idea that there is something wrong with their appearance. They may think they are too fat or not muscular enough, for example. It's a common misconception that people with body dysmorphia are often seeking cosmetic surgery to fix their perceived flaws. However, most people with BDD are not satisfied with the results of surgery and still think that something is wrong with their appearance even after the surgery is complete. If you think you might have BDD, it's important to talk to your doctor about it.

The expectations of female celebrities' bodies have been a topic of debate for decades. The public's fascination with the size and shape of female celebrities' bodies is nothing new, but it has become more pronounced in recent years - especially with content creators on OnlyFans and Instagram.

Just the whole process of meticulously adjusting your appearance for likes, shares, approval and validation can take a major toll on their mental health. To look a certain way, act a certain way, have full energy for hours on end - this is very taxing on a person.

It's no secret that the comments section on social media can be a very toxic affair - and even one comment can have someone look at their body or behaviours a different way. From a comment about their face shape, how they've "gained" or "lost" weight - they are always being judged.

On Instagram, photos and videos are often Photoshopped or edited using FaceTune on their phone to look perfect. On OnlyFans, there's this expectation to look a certain way for your fans if they respond a certain way for you. This often leads to again - gaining or losing weight and being mentally over-critical about the uniqueness of your body.

The important thing to remember here is that you should celebrate your flaws!

Every single individual is unique! And that's a good thing!

Taking time to really appreciate yourself is important. That mole, birthmark, the clicking noise you make with your jaw when you eat, the fact you don't like spiders, what number the scale says - all of this is a good thing - not something to be ashamed of!

If 1000 people were in a room together and they all looked the same, had the same interests and acted in a similar fashion. That would be super boring.

Everyone has different attractions, and no matter what you do - not everyone is going to like you. 

You know who is always going to like you? Yes - you guessed it - it's YOU!

Remind yourself:

To be be proud of who you are.
That you're beautiful.
You're confident in yourself - and not what others perceive.
Bullying yourself is NOT going to help.

It's important to be your true self and to showcase that wherever you are. If you create a fake online persona with this impossible standard - this can create a very unhealthy period of "catching up" to this perfection and setting too high of expectations on yourself. You have nothing to prove to any of your viewers, and rest assured being your true self will resonate with a higher quality of viewer.
