90 Day Fiance star Stephanie Matto has defended her decision to sell nude photos and videos of herself, and says she’s not ashamed of it and doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon.
Stephanie, a 29-year-old social media influencer from Yonkers, NY, will be appearing on the fourth season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days beginning Sunday along with her love interest whom she met online, Erika, a 24-year-old photographer from Australia.
Stephanie and Erika will be the first same-sex couple to ever star on the franchise, and viewers will apparently come to discover Stephanie is more than confident in her own skin and unabashedly embraces her sexuality.
For starters, Stephanie posts sexy videos and photos of herself on her “Stepanka” YouTube channel which has more than 350,000 subscribers.
And according to Starcasm, Stephanie also has a Patreon account with varying subscription levels that enable her fans to pay a monthly fee from $1 to $50 to gain access to exclusive content — which includes, if the price is right, nude photos and videos.
While a $50 monthly subscription reportedly pays for a burlesque-style video, a sexy photo shoot each month and more, Stephanie also offers a customized nude video for a monthly fee of $100, but that tier is currently unavailable.
Top-level subscribers also receive access to Stephanie’s private social media accounts.
“Its amazing supplemental income and a fun side job for me! Some people sell poop tea, I sell me!” Stephanie wrote Friday on an Instagram posting.
“I’m currently filming a Qn’A about my sexy + risque content that I post on my Patreon!…Want to know about my earnings? Details of my work? Are you curious what it’s like and the type of content I do? ASK ME ANYTHING! Try to keep the questions respectful but I will do my best to answer as many as I can!”
Stephanie has also reportedly proudly called herself “a hoe” and a “dumbass” as well as an advocate, writer, and content creator.
“I’m allowed to be everything. I am allowed to love whoever I want. I am not definable,” she reportedly told her followers.
According to Starcasm, Stephanie recently attempted to clear things up for those confused about her career.
“I sell naked photos of myself online,” Stephanie reportedly wrote in a recent Instagram Stories posting. “Some people think that’s wrong, some say that’s gross, some will call me a wh0re.”
“Your opinion is exactly that: YOURS,” she added. “And I respect you for having one and voicing it. I actually have pretty strong morals about my body.”
Stephanie claims her mature content available on Patreon is part of a larger business model that supports her financially and also helps her provide for her family.
“Money I make from sponsorships and certain investments I have are all a pool of my income. I do well for myself. My younger brother lives with me, I am now financially responsible for him. I pay for health insurance, rent, bills, and also help friends and people out and lam so proud of that,” Stephanie added in additional Instagram Stories postings, Starcasm reported.
“Over the coming weeks, I am sure more and more of my sexy content will be out in the open and people will have sh*t to say. My content on Patreon has helped fund my documentary, my other creative projects, and it has also allowed to fill in the gaps with income ever since YouTube ad money went to sh*t about a year or so ago.”
Stephanie told people they can call her whatever they want and judge her all they want, but she apparently doesn’t care.
“That’s cool,” she reportedly said. “But don’t get any of it twisted — I am proud of my work, I enjoy it, it makes people happy, and makes a lot of things possible for me. I will never be ashamed.”
TLC teased Erika has been keeping her own sexual orientation a secret from her family, and Stephanie is unsure how to break the news to her parents she’ll be traveling to Australia to meet a woman she loves.
“To further complicate the situation, [Stephanie] has a rare bone marrow disorder that requires clearance from her doctors to travel, as well as several medications to keep her stable. Stephanie is risking her health to meet the woman of her dreams, but is Erika only in love with her online persona or with the real Stephanie?” TLC revealed.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days’ fourth season is currently airs on Sunday nights at 8PM ET/PT on TLC.
