How I Was Able to Make Money Traveling & Doing Sexy Content!

I write this blog two days prior to me leaving for Sicily on my birthday trip! I never really thought that the day I picked up a camera, my Iphone, and a tripod, it would lead me down this road. The road which ultimately led me to having financial freedom, being able to travel and make money anywhere I went, and create sexy content in the process. I know this may sound like the beginning of an MLM scheme's "inspirational" story, but there is truth behind my words and there is no scheme here at all. While I created content for my Unfiltrd, I was able to also document my travels for my social media, bring in more and more interested viewers to my page, and see the world! I even documented one trip to Paris, during which I sold tickets to an online event of me losing my celibacy (yes, crazy, I know), but more on that later...


One of the biggest draws to being a spicy content creator is that it is a job that you can do anywhere. You can do it from home, you can do it while you're traveling, and for me, at one point in time, it was a job that made sense because I was able to do it while I was very sick. In 2016 I was diagnosed with a rare bone marrow failure condition called Aplastic Anemia. Don't be fooled by the name, because it is nothing like Anemia. In fact, Aplastic Anemia is treated as a cancer, and so I spent 3-4 days per week in an Oncology/Hematology center getting blood and platelet transfusions. I certainly was not a good candidate for a regular 9-5 job during this time, and even after treatment, I had a very low immune system and low platelets which put me at constant danger of infections and uncontrollable bleeding. Being a sexy creator allowed me to make money, from home, on my time. In many ways, having this income to fall back on really saved me. This is not the only story of it's kind - many creators with health challenges rely on the sex work industry to support themselves.


Now let's get into the sexy part!


Although creating sexy content was a huge life saver for me while I was sick, I did (fortunately) end up going into a stable remission. And at this point, I felt like the world was my oyster. I had great income, I was able to support myself and those around me. For years I worked from home, unable to leave, and now the door was wide open. My first year of being well again, I traveled to Spain, Austria, Czech Republic, Turks & Caicos, France, and Italy. I was on a mission to see as much of the world as possible. And while many would think that these trips would come at a HUGE cost, I actually ended up making money on these trips. I made enough money to not only cover the cost of the trip, but to actually make the trip a financially beneficial event. Each vacation that I took, I'd encourage my followers to subscribe to my Unfiltrd in order to gain behind the scenes access to what I was doing. If they wanted to see the bikini pics and all the naughty in-betweens, they'd have to pay. For many of my followers who were bored at home, this was a one way ticket to a sexy Stepanka Euro-trip!


On one of these trips, to Paris, I made nearly $20,000 selling behind the scenes access. I was planning on having a sexual awakening that summer (being sick for several years really puts a damper on your libido), and met someone online from Paris that agreed he would be a part of this project! I sold tickets to my trip for interested viewers, and then additionally sold photos and videos from the trip to those that didn't purchase tickets. It was a wild idea, but at the time it felt right, and made me a great deal of money. It was so successful, that I even ended up doing it again a week after my Paris trip when I went to Italy with my girlfriend! We frolicked on the Amalfi Coast in our bikinis, and took sexy photos and videos in our AirBnb that we then sold for thousands!


To many creators, the idea of this sounds like a dream, but it doesn't have to be! My biggest advice to creators who have this goal in mind is to be realistic in the beginning but set your sights high! During the two years that I was sick and unable to travel or do much, I really did my best to build up my engagement and relationships with fans. I focused fully on my health and my wealth. This ended up paying off years down the line when I had established enough income to be able to eventually travel. The key is patience, and knowing that your end goal will not come immediately. All good things take time, so while you are growing your Unfiltrd, or whatever fan subscription platform you are on, do your research on how to improve, collaborate with others, stay consistent, and grow your social media in the process. In the end, hard work and consistency will always pay off - and you will find yourself on a beach somewhere, someday, making money and living your dream!
