Wether they think so or not, yes they are. That's what her entire brand and marketing angles hinges on, wether in a conscious or unconscious way. Same way a bloke who buys a BMW or a fancy watch is doing it because on some level, he buys into all the ideas of class and status that marketing has cleverly cultivated to go along with it, wether he thinks he is or not.
Maybe I'm reading too much into it because taking business studies alongside sociology in sixth form and then discovering psychedelics early has utterly ruined my worldview. But I don't think it's a particularly healthy or ethical business model. It just happens to be one that thrives in our completely amoral consumerist environment.

I think paying to see someone's tits is very different to buying a rolex - you likely wouldn't be telling the neighbours about the former, for a start.

She doesn't even get her tits out. Her onlyfans is censored, and the shots that need censoring are very few and far between. That's the whole point, that's why it's not the same as just paying your favourite porn actress for some personalised pics.
Her business isn't built on porn, it's built on the parasocial relationship lonely autistic gamer virgins will easily form with a girl like her. We're it not for that, she wouldn't be making this kind of money, she'd be an average softcore model making average softcore model money, which is to say fuck all.

Both the example of consumer capitalism and of coomer capitalism you give are exploitative on some level, yes. That's inherent in the capitalism part. But buying an expensive status symbol is not having a parasocial relationship.
The point I was making is that Belle's business model is relatively harmless*.
*It turns out she sometimes sells merchandise using other people's illustrations of her without permission, which is IP theft and fairly shitty behaviour. But as she owns her likeness, they can't sell those images either so it's not particularly impactful, mostly just rude.

You keep saying that but you haven't shown it to be more true than the evidence we've already seen of people into her for the meme.
|>>|| No. 41670
I wasn't saying saying it is, I was pointing out that it's marketing, like any other product.
What evidence? She had to be popular before she became bathwater meme girl, and you don't think that was a complete accident do you?
|>>|| No. 41671
Her videos are still doing sexy dances and rubbing vibrators on her (censored) fanny - it's porn, just not very good porn.
I understand anyone on onlyfans is there because of 'marketing' i.e. people know who they are and want to wank to them, but she's not selling being your waifu, she's selling titillation. She rarely even talks on video.

>She had to be popular before she became bathwater meme girl
Yes, she was popular because photos of her doing the ahego face were memed.
>you don't think that was a complete accident do you?
I don't think she chose her genes or strategically figured out ahead of time that doing the ahego face would rocket her to bathwater-level stardom.
Also what >>41671 says, I'm not sure why her not getting her chabuddies or clunge out on camera makes it less porn. Some people find that sexier.
|>>|| No. 41683
You're right, but I think there's definitely merit to what otherlad is saying. Why else is she offering personalised this and personalised that. Her USP is the feeling that she's "real", unlike all those other porn models.
It's a bit like how on the surface, facebook is for posting cat memes and getting angry at your nan's bigoted politics, but the real money spinner is aactually data mining and advertising. The little personal twist is her KFC secret spices.
I mean, the lass is not thick, clearly. You shouldn't discount her as just another camgirl because that doesn't explain why she's raking in so much.
|>>|| No. 41684
The personalised stuff is by no means unique to Delphine - softcore/cosplay bints like Meg Turney and Jessica Nigiri have been offering things like signed polaroids and custom shoots for high tier contributors for nigh on a decade now.
From where I'm standing she had a reasonable but small following, and her bathwater idea was funny and memeable enough to be an unexpectedly popular idea that really put her name out there, and she seems to have effectively capitalised on that coverage.

Otherlad again, not a direct comparison obviously but yeah that's what I'm getting at, it's sort of a hidden ploy that works because customers don't at first, or don't consciously, notice it. She's far from the only one to be doing it either, of course, but it is definitely A Thing if you ask me.
I consider it unethical for similar reasons that I consider maybe 75% of consumer marketing unethical, it just winds me up that it always seems to get a free pass because being a glorified camslut is somehow seen as empowering for lasses nowadays.
|>>|| No. 41687
No such thing as ethical capitalism m8. I make my money flying plebs to benidorm on overpriced tickets and ruining the planet as we go, and I don't make nearly as much as she does. I'm doing objectively more harm than her and I get a free pass from (most of) society too, despite not being an empowered woman.
|>>|| No. 41688
Why are you saying that as if it's something resembling a counter argument? I think you're parasitic scum too ladm8.
|>>|| No. 41689
No doubt, and unless you're currently stoking the engines on the Rainbow Warrior III then I doubt your job is that ethical either, or if you don't have a job you're still in The System - but that isn't really the point - I'm trying to say that you seem to take exception to her particularly brand of capitalism being ignored, when clearly it's not really any more or less awful (or gets any more of a free pass) than anything else we do.
|>>|| No. 41690
I work in healthcare so my job actually is a fair bit more ethical than most, arguably. It does generate a horrifying amount of plastic waste, is perhaps one thing.
That's really not a point though overall is it. It's a bit like someone criticising Nestle and you saying "Well you don't seem that bothered about BP, do you?"
I'm criticising her here because it's the subject that came up, and you lot are being a big set of simps. Yes, I said it, simps!
|>>|| No. 41692
Since no one else seems willing to admit it I will.
I'd rather like to fuck Belle Delphine.

>It's a bit like someone criticising Nestle and you saying "Well you don't seem that bothered about BP, do you?"
Point taken, but you were directly pointing out that she was getting a free pass, while my opinion is that nearly everyone is getting a free pass.
Because I make loads of money and the airline I work for is not going anywhere.

Oh yeah I'd fuck her for sure, she's very attractive.
Even if she wasn't, I'd still want to fuck her, just for the story.
|>>|| No. 41696
I clicked through a handful; she does an impressive job of explicitly fucking herself on camera without ever showing more than a hint of labia.
|>>|| No. 41697
I was confused by that bit too - presumably one has to pay extra to see the flaps?
|>>|| No. 41698
I don't think she shows the flaps to anyone - or maybe that's what 2115 quid gets you?
|>>|| No. 41699
I think she just never shows them. They're too humanising, it would destroy her anime-girl mystique. Other lad thinks her USP is being more "real" than other porn stars, I don't think that's true. Her USP is being more anime than human.
|>>|| No. 41700
It's the internet so I'm sure if she'd gotten out her flaps we'd know about it.
I reckon she's slowly working her way up to hardcore over the next few years to extend the duration of interest. The situation is like one of those porn games where they make $40k+ a month in patreon money so there's every incentive to never finish unlike with traditional game companies that set hard deadlines. Or how pornstars don't jump right into interracial and anal.
Not him but unsure how I feel about this. Sure everyone is more filth when it's not real life but if you want an anime character you can just look at cartoons, she's anime with a human face where people pay for the personal touch. As Gianna Michaels taught her as young lads with our trousers round our ankles: personality and spunk make a world of difference.
And to avoid the horror of what real anime people would look like:

Those face softening and eye embiggening filters put her too far into the uncanny valley to wank to.

Nigri will eventually get her tits out.
I see it as her nuclear option. She's certainly not in the limelight as she once was.
Trouble she has is opening Pandora's box means she can't close it again.

Can you really call yourself a "thinking man" if you watch the news on CBBC?

How else would you know wot the yoof are thinking? By hanging around them like Adam Buxton?

That's not fair, I'm way more in love with her that you are. I even learnt how to spell her name and everything.
|>>|| No. 41772
Your claim is illegitimate, as I found/poster her here first.
Anyway, I don't believe I'm exaggerating when I say she has the most beautiful eyes imaginable. A withering look from her would be devastating.
|>>|| No. 41773
I've met a few blonde Irish girls with eyes like that, they can be intimidating to talk to.

>That Dr Becky
I thought I was the only lad who liked her. I would love for her to show me her telescope and teach me about the stars. I find it romantic.

Has she got a willy? Most of the YouTube lady nerds I fancy have got willies.

She seems a bit tomboyish too, which is also a great .gs staple.
I wouldn't care if she did, I'd give that a good going too. She's absolutely lovely.
