Former Disney star Dan Benson is no longer pushing out kid-friendly content.
The "Wizards of Waverly Place" alum took to TikTok recently to explain his transition from child star to the X-rated world.
"One of the questions I get asked all the time is: 'What? Huh? What do you mean?' " Dan, 35, said in his video. "So anyway, I thought I'd take just a minute to explain how I kind of tripped and fell into doing adult entertainment."
Dan explained that he would often get messages from attractive women while he was starring alongside Selena Gomez in the Disney show. He would often reply back.
"Turns out, messaging those women — who turned out not to be who they said they were — was not the best idea, because I would send nude photos to them, and they would take those nude photos and then post them onto online websites," he said.
Dan copped to being embarrassed and did everything he could do have those pictures removed from the Internet, but that turned out to be an impossible task. The "negative impact" from those images nearly cost him a job, he added.
Soon, though, the ex-Disney star had an epiphany.
"Eventually I decided to stop fighting against it and instead go the other direction and completely lean into it," he said. "Instead of letting these people sell my privacy, my — you know what I mean — I decided to say, 'All right, screw you, I'm gonna sell it myself.' "
Last year, he quickly began an X-rated OnlyFans page.
"I've been having a tremendous amount of fun. I met a lot of great people in the adult entertainment industry, and it's changed my life for the better," he said. "Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches."
In ending his video, he cautioned, "Don't do what I do, necessarily, unless you want to."
