A man is making a whopping £1,600 a month – by selling his socks online.
Billy-Joe Gray, 25, runs an OnlyFans page with his fiancee and had no idea there was a market for used socks until someone messaged the page about it.
Now, he sells worn socks for between £10 and £30 a pair, and he sells up to 12 pairs a week – which adds up to £360.
He claims to wear the socks for days at a time before mailing them off in zip-lock bags, and even takes customers’ requests into consideration – for an extra charge. Despite his highly-unusual choice of career, Billy-Joe says he is open about his job to friends and family, who are supportive of his endeavour.
One clip in which Billy-Joe takes viewers through his gym routine in order to generate enough moisture for his socks has racked up more than 80,000 views on TikTok, as viewers are left in shock at his unusual job choice.
Billy-Joe, from Chelsea, London, said: “I started OnlyFans just over a year ago and through OnlyFans, you get requests for items of clothing, whether that be socks, boxers or gym tops.
“A lot of guys had interest in it, because I have massive support from the LGBTQ+ community. They’re like my main audience.
“They help support my page and I do videos and content for them on my website as well as through TikTok and Instagram.
“I have a lot of Americans who buy my used underwear and my used socks and keep them for their own enjoyment.
“I get regular buyers who will buy used socks all the time. I’ll go to the gym on specific days for them and wear them over the course of one to three days for them.
