Carmen Electra, 50, joins OnlyFans and declares it feels 'really good' to 'be in control' of her saucy snaps... after modeling for Playboy for decades
Carmen Electra joined OnlyFans on Wednesday just four weeks after celebrating her 50th birthday.
The blonde bombshell, who became a sex symbol on Baywatch in the 1990s and for appearing on the cover of Playboy, has now followed in the footsteps of a slew of stars on the subscription service.
She dished to People that 'it was like a no-brainer' to launch an OnlyFans where she can 'be in control' of her pictures and be uninhibited by the sort of censorship she has to subject her saucy snaps to on Instagram.

'I just felt like: "Yeah, I need to do this." 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."'
Said she: '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.'
Carmen, who has taken to suing strip clubs that neglect to get her approval before using her likeness, declared: 'It does feel really good to stand up for yourself.'
The Ohio native explained: '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.

'Wednesday! i have a huge announcement only for my fans. are you a fan?' the smoldering glamour model teased in the caption.
A string of celebrities have previously joined OnlyFans, including Cardi B, Aaron Carter, Blac Chyna, Bella Thorne and Bachelorette alum Chad Johnson.
Bella set off a scandal in 2020 after she was accused of charging her OnlyFans subscribers $200 for a 'naked' photo and then sending a non-nude picture instead.
However Bella told the Los Angeles Times that the post promising a 'naked' picture was falsified as her real social media clarified she would not be offering nudes.

OnlyFans then imposed payment caps and holds on the platform, and although they publicly said the change was 'not based on any one user' Bella received blowback.
Many creators who used OnlyFans to make genuine pornography were furious with Bella whom they felt had thrown a wrench in their business model.
Bella insisted on Twitter that she had 'risked my career a few times to remove the stigma behind sex work' and apologized for having 'hurt' the pornographers.
