By selling his used socks online, a man earns £1,600 (Rs 1.53 lakh) per month.


Until someone asked about it on his OnlyFnas page, Billy-Joe Gray, 25, had no idea there was a market for worn socks.

He sells used socks for £10 to £30 per pair, and he can sell up to 12 pairs per week.

Gray, who lives in Chelsea, London, claims to wear the socks for days at a time before packing them in zip-lock bags and mailing them to customers. Customers’ particular requirements are also taken into account – for an additional fee.

Gray goes on to say that his family and friends are supportive of his unique employment choice.


Gray was quoted as saying by Mirror, “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,”

He said, “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.”

He added, “We’ll then talk about a price and how much they’d be happy to pay. It’s on an individual basis how much they sell for. If I can sell my used socks for £10, £20 or £30 a time, I will.”

“The sweatier and more stenched they are, the better. I’ll go running and stuff, and put them in a zip lock bag, and then put them in discreet packaging – in case they live at home with their parents, their husband or wife,” he explained.
