In a new interview with El Pais, Mia Khalifa delves into her experience with sex work, finding a safe space on OnlyFans and her high fashion era.

It’s no secret that Khalifa has a short stint as an adult entertainer, yet everywhere she turns she has to deal with trolls and ultimately, sex-negative people. “I don’t recognize myself in that person,” she told the publication. “And I feel sorry for her, for where she was mentally and how little I loved and respected myself and how she tried to win the approval of others.”

As for whether porn was empowering, “the answer is no.” But thankfully, her community hosted on OnlyFans has offered a new outlet for empowerment. “I do things my own way on there, there’s no nudity, I don’t do what people expect when they get on there. I post fun, beautiful pictures that make me feel empowered.” As for trolls, “It also makes me feel powerful to block people who say rude things to me,” she added. “It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to say no” or her favorite “Fuck off.”

But for those seeking to pigeonhole her into respectability politics, she’s not having it. When asked about her new, modest take, she quickly made it clear she knew the real question being asked. “I don’t like to call it modest. I think it’s a matter of preference. There are probably a lot more pressures and barriers for women from certain religious or social backgrounds than for others… I also don’t say the thing about not doing nudity on OnlyFans in a pretentious way or to be better than others. Sometimes I don’t like to say it, actually, because I feel like some people might interpret that I’m saying I’m better than those who do, and it’s not that at all. I’m comfortable like that now.”

As for whether she’ll ever pose nude again, Khalifa is on the fence. ”I’m really afraid that my nudes will start circulating around again, but lately working in Europe I’ve been feeling good about creating artistically beautiful things and that has been giving me confidence to show more. Even when I’ve done photos without a top, I’ve felt more comfortable because I haven’t felt overtly sexual. Anyway, if someone sexualizes those photos it’s their problem, not mine.”

We love to see it.
