Brit woman, 21, earns more than doctor parents £200k salary thanks to OnlyFans

A woman, 21, is pocketing more money than her doctor parents who earn a combined salary of £200,000.

Mercedes Valentine, from Brighton, turned her back on her promising career as a neuroscientist to become an OnlyFans model.

She swapped her uniform of lab coats for underwear where she is now in the top 0.1% of creators on the saucy site.

After being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome at 15, she was left wheelchair-bound and having to relearn how to walk again.

Then two years of strenuous physical therapy, Mercedes was mobile again and prepared to follow in her parents' footsteps.

But when she joined her university gym, she also signed up for weekly pole dancing lessons which turned her head slightly.

She became a stripper after finishing her degree when a friend from her pole dancing class suggested she gave it a go.

Since embarking on stripping and OnlyFans, which sees her earn up to £1,000 a night, she pockets more than her doctor parents.

The model, who boasts 134,000 followers on Instagram, said: "I have no regrets, I absolutely love it.

"Because of my condition, my joints are more bendy so I was able to pick pole dancing up pretty quick.

"My parents are both doctors and know what I do but my dad can't bring himself to say pole dancer and opts for 'pole gymnastics'."

She revealed how both of her parents, who earn a combined salary of £200,000 a year, were a bit stunned by her career path.

Mercedes added: "I think at first they were a bit shocked I didn't follow the path they had in mind for me.

"We're a family of doctors and my sister is a lawyer so this is a bit different, but they've got used to it now and are really supportive."

The model began stripping in January 2020 where she found she was a natural.

But while she enjoys her line of work, she admits there have been some "strange encounters".

She revealed: "One time there was this couple and the guy seemed really quiet and shy.

"I tried to get him out of his shell and danced a little closer and started speaking to him.

"He tried to whisper in my ear but I couldn't really hear him. When I turned around, he managed to press his nose into my bum.

"It was really weird, I wasn't expecting it. I've also had a guy say I look like his daughter and try it on with me. I felt a bit sick then.

"But for the most part it is really fun – I basically walk around and wriggle my bum cheeks and I make hundreds of pounds a night."

After two months of working as a stripper, the world went into a lockdown leaving Mercedes without a source of income.

Not keen to return to science, she created an OnlyFans account in April 2021 where she started sharing raunchy content.

She said: "I've mostly saved the money and haven't splashed it around on expensive things.

"If I'm able to use my now-functioning body to help set me up for life, then I will.

"I'm always scared that I'll be back in a wheelchair by time I'm 30 and want to use my body."
