An OnlyFans model who embraces her body hair has shared the hate she receives online.
The 28-year-old used to make $1,000 (£780) a month when shaved and now makes $8,000 (£6,200) “on my lowest months”.
While she has seen success since ditching the razor, she still receives negative comments online.
She told Daily Star exclusively: "I don’t respond to negative comments so much anymore but I used to love replying with a simple 'why?' and get them to explain their silly reason behind their hate which often leaves them looking a fool.
"The most common hate I get is things like 'no man will love you', 'single forever' or 'that’s disgusting' and 'you must smell bad', etc."
Fenella believes men who hate women having natural hair are insecure and it’s a “projection of their own poor hygiene”.
She doesn't let these comments get her down though, especially since she receives a variety of positive ones.
The model added: "I’ve had a lot of men and women say that I’ve made them feel more comfortable with their natural body or their partners."
The 28-year-old wants to help normalise body hair, which she believes is becoming more accepted.
She encourages women to question why they shave, why they wear makeup and the reason they feel bad about their bodies.
"Question everything and explore what comes up for you! Do you shave because you want to or because you feel pressured to?" she queried.
"Has someone taught you to feel that way? Has a company? An advert? Brands like Gillette profit off women shaving their legs and have been convincing women for many years now that it’s the thing to do.
"If it wasn’t for brands like Gillette would we still shave our legs? Or would we simply accept it as a normal part of being human just as men have with their own?"
If you are looking to grow out your body hair, Fenella has shared one important piece of advice.
She said: "At first it will grow through prickly and I found that with time it becomes softer so be patient with your body!
“Allow time for it to flourish, at least one month!"
