How to build a side hustle as a ‘findomme’ to make money from pay pigs – Business Insider


  • “Ellie Paige” has created a side hustle from men who like to be financially dominated by women.
  • She has been moonlighting as a “findomme” since the pandemic struck to increase her savings.
  • Here’s how to get started and the risks to consider before starting out as a findomme.

Ellie Paige (not her real name) built a side hustle from “pay pigs” – mostly men who like to be financially dominated – to earn extra money during the pandemic. She stumbled on “findom”, or financial domination, on Twitter.

“The findom world bled into the regular Twitter timeline,” she said.

Ellie has since been moonlighting off and on as a “findomme” – a dominant woman – but has been posting regularly since June.

“It’s important to get the money first,” she said. “It makes it pretty easy to figure out who is there to waste your time.”

Findommes can then post their images on Twitter using hashtags such as paypig and findom. 

There are a number of risks to consider before deciding to get involved. Your friends, family or employer could find it and you could also be subjected to online abuse from trolls.

“That’s a risk I have to take and I’ll cross that bridge if I have to, but you need to be okay with that possibility.”

People may not be prepared or comfortable with what findom can really entail, Ellie says, as she has been sent nude pictures, threatening or overly sexual messages.
