Dolly, an year-old aspiring online model, was sitting in her kitchen one day in June when an exciting email arrived. Just like that, Dolly had her first subscriber. Like a growing number of her counterparts in the world of online sexual content, Dolly is trying to start converting her social media following into a paid customer base. Models are using Twitter , Facebook -owned Instagram and Snapchat to promote their premium offerings on sites like OnlyFans, Fancentro and Patreon , where they can charge a recurring subscription. In the opaque online porn industry, where billions of dollars a year flow to websites powered by ads and premium subscriptions, Dolly and others are aiming to wrest some control from the content distributors and take a bigger slice of the economic pie. Just as independent musicians are trying to make money by going directly to their fans on SoundCloud and Bandcamp , and comedians are turning to Comedy Central's Stand-Up Direct to sell uncut performances, women in porn are adopting the direct-to-consumer business model on the web and mobile devices.
