Showing that for some parents there’s never too much information, the mother of OnlyFans star Jack the Lad said she’s proud of her son’s occupation and reminded viewers she had a hand in making what he's profiting from. The mother of Cameron Cook revealed the information in a video her son, aka Jack, posted to TikTok, and jokingly adding she wanted a cut from the profits generated.
“I made that D,” said the proud mom of the 19-year-old on the video. “I want a percentage.”
The special moment of motherly love came in response to a question from a view who wanted to know what mum thought of Cook’s job as "special accountant," adding “bet she’s so proud of you.”
It turns out, mom was very proud, indeed given that she's benefited.
“Right, so mom, you know how I am a ‘special account?’” Cook asked his mother, adding “What are your thoughts about it? Are you proud of me?”
Mum didn’t need to give the question much thought to her response.
“Of course, I’m proud,” gushed mom with a laugh. “I’m your number one fan. I always have been. You know that. I made that D. I want a percentage." She went on to rattle off that she's gotten driving lessons and a big TV as a result from the revenue.
The response to the video was overwhelmingly supportive.
One commenter noted how comforting it was to see “families support sex workers.”
Another fan said simply that “this is pride.” In addition to having a well-followed OnlyFans, Cook boasts over 1 million followers on TikTok. There, he revealed in August that he had been paid out over $14,000 by July 2020.
The homemade gay porn market has exploded in the past five years. Sites like OnlyFans and JustForFans allow performers to film, edit, and publish their own content, and profit directly from their work. Some performers can net as much as (or more than) $10,000 a month from the subscription-based sites. Actress Bella Thorne reportedly generated over $1 million in revenue within 24 hours of announcing the launch of her OnlyFans page. Milk of RuPaul’s Drag Race season six and All Stars season three is on OnlyFans as well. Not all accounts require a paid subscription, and most celebrities post on the site for free. Many adult content posters, like Cook, charge for their work.
