A woman who ditched her shaving razor 10 years ago and embraced her body hair has revealed how she earns big bucks online.

Cassandra Sunshine, from Oregon, US, decided to stop shaving her legs, armpits and other areas a decade ago as the process was 'more hassle than it's worth'.

Razor-free for 10 years

The 28-year-old lives with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a chronic condition that causes very flexible joints and stretchy and fragile skin.

Cassie would often accidentally dislocate her shoulder and wrist or damage her skin while shaving so in 2011 she gave up altogether and let her body hair grow out.

"Shaving caused me agony and it was more hassle than it was worth," she told Caters News.

"There were times when I lifted my arm to shave my armpits and dislocated my shoulder.

"I've also lost count of the number of times that I've dislocated my wrist when shaving my legs."

'My body, my choice'

While Cassie has wholeheartedly embraced her razor-less lifestyle, not everyone is on board.

"My body hair upsets my family and partner, who doesn't wish to be named, but I don't care," she said.

Even though Cassie's boyfriend has offered to shave her in the past, she declined.

"I am happy with the hair," she explained. "It's my body and my choice."

At 6ft 5in, Cassie is sometimes mistaken as a man by members of the public while out and about, but it doesn't bother her these days.

"I used to care what people think but now I don't at all.

"If someone is upset by my hair then that is their problem, not mine."

She's keen to normalise body hair and challenge the belief that 'women should be hairless to be beautiful'.

OnlyFans income

Whilst some people aren't fans of Cassie's body hair, others pay good money to see it.

She has an OnlyFans account where she sells racy photos of herself, earning her hundreds of US dollars a month.

"I am fetishized as I'm super tall with big feet and hairy.

"I have combined all three of my quirks and sell images online to those with fetishes.

"I make a few hundred per month without promoting my page - it's just enough to cover the costs of the experimental treatments I do for my [Ehlers-Danlos] condition."
