OnlyFans model Belle Delphine has hit back at critics who say a recent social media post of hers is “promoting rape”.
The 21-year-old earns nearly £1m ($1.2m) a month charging fans for saucy OnlyFans videos and even sold bath water she had “played in”.
But her latest Twitter post has left people fuming, with one person saying men will “see this and think this is normal”.
In the tweet, Belle is seen tied up with her feet and hands bound and tape covering her mouth.
She is also seen in the boot of a vehicle and then having sex with a man wearing a black/camo top and a black balaclava.
The post, which has been shared more than 9,000 times and liked more than 57,000 times, was shared with the caption: “My perfect first date.”
A Twitter user wrote: “Belle Delphine promoting the fetishization of rape, great job.”
In response to Belle’s tweet, another user replied: “I’ve never had a problem with Belle but this is messed up and I really hope she (and everyone else) can see how this is harmful. This isn’t hot or sexy.
“It’s traumatizing and a dangerous reality. If you think this is hot, please consider getting help.”
Another wrote: “The issue isn’t having this kink, it’s the fact that a lot of males here will see this and think this is normal.
“They don’t know about the safe words, long discussions, and therapy that take place before engaging in a scene like this. They just see rape.”
One industry leader has even warned, “actions like this will end porn as we know it”.
Alana Evans, President of the Adult Performance Artists Guild Union, is one of the people to have criticised Belle for sharing the images.
She tweeted: “Super shocked that while our industry of adult performers is still reeling from the @pornhub purge, Belle Delphine creates a video mocking kidnapping and rape.
“You suck, Belle! Sincerely real adult performers.
“Actions like this will end porn as we know it. Make better choices.”
But Belle has disputed Alana’s comment, saying “porn like this has been around since the 80’s.”
And Belle has also hit back at her other critics, telling the Daily Star: “There is nothing wrong with enjoying power-play and BDSM where both people are consensual.
“I think saying because I enjoy consensual non-consent is promoting rape, is the same as the argument that violence in video games promotes violence.”
She went on: “I made it very clear in the caption of my photo, and anything written about it that I was enjoying it and that is was consensual, I never said the word rape, or anything against my will.
“This is what other people have put onto it. I enjoy the idea of being tied up and used (with my consent, obviously).”
She also disputes “insane” accusations that she was “trying to dress like a child” in the photos.
Belle added that she has made it clear that the Twitter account shares hardcore porn and says anyone upset by her content shouldn’t follow her.
She said: “No one likes rape, no one wants rape to exist.”
Adding that she consented to being tied up and having rough sex, Belle said: “I am not apologising for anything, what I did wasn’t wrong, and much more normal than people think.”
“Sex is complex and explorative, but should always be consensual,” she said.
Belle added: “As for people saying I should’ve used a trigger warning my whole Twitter/OnlyFans have constant themes of kink since I do porn as a job and I will not put a trigger warning on all my posts.
“Do not follow me if you require trigger warnings before posts.”
The gamer girl recently claimed no one would talk to her in real life as she is “uneducated” and realised “the only real way to make money is to be sexual online”.
Belle, real name Mary, of Hove, East Sussex, told the Spectator: “No one is going to speak to me if I am sat there not wearing anything to comment on, but if I’m wearing something crazy people will say ‘That’s crazy’ and start a conversation.
“I can’t start a conversation with anyone.”
