The star, 50, who rose to fame as a sex symbol during the ’90s, tells PEOPLE “it was like a no-brainer” to join the OnlyFans subscription-based service to create content for her fans.
“I just felt like, ‘Yeah, I need to do this,'” Electra shares. “I, for once, have this opportunity to be my own boss and have my own creative vision to share with my fans without someone standing over me, telling me, ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that. Cover up this.’ ”
“People are going to do what they want to do anyway with your photos, you might as well be in control of them and follow what you feel like doing inside,” she says.
“It does feel really good to stand up for yourself,” she says. “I think what we’re going through now is people are finally standing up for themselves and who they are … It’s not always easy to do, but I do respect people that can stand up for who they are and be honest about it.”
“It’s kind of a yearly thing because then all of my friends can come and I get a house and we just have fun. And I like to treat my friends, that’s just how I am,” Electra adds. “I pay for the house and then we just have the best time barbecuing and swimming. I love it there, so I have a home away from home.”
