We offer a list of the easiest ways to make money on your body and a rough estimate of how much money you can get for it.

No. 1. Sell ​​Plasma

Plasma is the clear liquid found in blood.

It contains proteins, water, antibodies and some enzymes.

Doctors use it to create products that help people with bleeding disorders and other blood-related complications.

And since there is a demand for plasma, people sell it. The donation process is very similar to blood donation.

You go to the plasma center where they will draw blood from your vein. The doctors will give you a saline injection instead of the plasma they took. The whole process takes about two hours for the first time and about 90 minutes for each subsequent trip.

There are several requirements for selling your plasma:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must weigh at least 50 kg
  • You must not have HIV, hepatitis or other viruses
  • You must have adequate levels of protein and hemoglobin in your blood

Before each session, you will be tested for the above with a rapid blood test.

Now about the good. How much can you earn selling plasma?

The amount varies by state and location. The average amount you receive from donating blood plasma is between $25 and $50 at a time.

If you go to donation centers, you can only sell your plasma every 28 days, or about once a month.

If you go to plasma centers, there are no restrictions, and in many states you can go twice a week. This is a great way for college students to earn extra income.

To find plasma donation centers, do an online plasma donor search near you or visit the American Red Cross.

#2 Sell breast milk

If you have given birth to a child and you have excess breast milk or you cannot breastfeed your baby for any reason, sell your breast milk for a lot of money.

Who buys it?

Other moms who want to breastfeed their baby but can't are ideal candidates. Sometimes these moms don't produce enough milk, or they don't want to breastfeed for fear of pain, or they're just too busy.

Milk banks also buy breast milk - these centers supply it to those in need.

But the biggest buyers are bodybuilders. Yes, they also drink breast milk. The reason is that milk contains growth factors that some bodybuilders trust.

In any case, breast milk can make good money. When selling to moms or milk cans, you can expect to earn about $1 an ounce. But if you're selling to bodybuilders, there's a real possibility of getting $2 or $3 an ounce. So if you have breast milk in abundance, you can sell.

On the subject: Utah woman sells 118 liters of her breast milk to help with baby food shortage

Let's say you average 5 ounces of milk at a time and pump twice a day for a total of 10 ounces. Within one month, you will have 300 ounces of breast milk. If you sell it to a bodybuilder for $2 an ounce, you'll make $600.

Number 3. Make money from lactation

This method is not for most people, but thanks to it it is possible to earn a serious amount of money, which is why it is here.

There are men who have a milk fetish. This means that they enjoy drinking milk from the female breast.

In most cases, a man simply sucks on the breast of a nursing woman. You can advertise your services online on sites like Craigslist. Any fetish forums or sites are places for advertising.

How much money can you earn?

Given that not many women offer this service, you can up your bid and easily charge $500 or more per session. If you don't want to physically interact with other people, sell adult breastfeeding videos and photos as an option.

True, this will bring you less money than a personal meeting.

#4 Get paid for taking pictures of your body

Many sell photos of their bodies in various clothes. You don't have to be naked to make money. You can be in a swimsuit, underwear or other clothes - the idea is different: leave something to the imagination.

The easiest way to get started with this idea is to create an OnlyFans page and charge for photos. You can even shoot video.

If you charge $10 per month for membership, then if you have 25 clients, you will receive $250 per month. Some OnlyFans models earn tens of thousands of dollars a year. But for such success, you need to promote your page in order to attract as many subscribers as possible.

#5: Sell photos of legs

As strange as it may sound, selling photos of your feet can make you some good money.

These shots can be used to promote foot products such as shoes, anklets, nail polishes, and blogs.

Potential buyers for photographs of your feet include:

  • Bloggers who write articles about foot related subjects and also illustrate anything in their articles
  • Physical magazines using legs to market a product in their article or illustration
  • Small businesses such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, Spas, and shoe retailers who need to advertise their products and services
  • People with foot fetish

Who you sell your feet to will determine how much money you can make.

At the low end, expect around $100 per month. But if you go the foot fetish route, you can earn over $75 a year.

#6 Become a sperm donor

Sperm donation is a concept that has been around for a long time.

To become a sperm donor, you must be:

  • Older than 18 years
  • 1,47 m tall or taller
  • Healthy (meaning no autoimmune disease). To determine your health, the doctor asks you to fill out a questionnaire about your medical history

In addition, you should write the medical history of your immediate and distant relatives. This is done in order to exclude the presence of hereditary diseases. The doctor performs a physical examination to find out if there are any medical problems that you have not yet been diagnosed with. Then your semen is taken for analysis to determine its condition, including activity and the number of sperm in it.

Sperm donation pays an average of $50.

But you can earn more. The doctor freezes your sperm for six months. If after that it is viable, you have the right to become a permanent donor. If your sample goes through the freezing process, you will earn an additional $20. Sperm can be donated weekly or up to 10 times a month.

This will bring you $500 in income, since the additional $20 will appear only after 6 months.

Some sperm banks will even pay you a referral bonus for having your friends donate as well. The biggest snag is that many men find that their sperm will not survive the 6 month freeze test to become a regular donor. Keep this in mind as this option can be a one-time source of income for some.

#7 Become a surrogate mother

This is a great way to make money using your female body.

If you decide to become a surrogate mother, then dedicate your efforts and time to helping another family have children. Many of the expenses you incur during pregnancy are covered by your biological parents. Of course, there is the possibility of negotiation, as some families may be willing to cover additional costs.

Typical covered costs include:

  • Clothes for pregnant women
  • Cleaning
  • Food
  • Childcare
  • Travel to doctor appointments
  • Insurance supplement
  • Health products

In the event that you lose your child, the intended parents will pay you up to the time of the miscarriage.

The average amount of money it is possible to earn as a surrogate varies, but the average is between $50 and $000. This includes expenses incurred during pregnancy.

While this is not a bad amount of money, remember that you will be carrying a baby for 9 months, so you need to take care of yourself and pay attention to what you eat.

In addition, it will affect your personal life.

No. 8. Participate in clinical trials

Clinical trials and focus groups determine whether new treatments and tests work for health problems or not. Researchers may also use them to explain certain scientific or medical phenomena. Some refer to clinical trial participants as guinea pigs. You can participate in a clinical study or focus group if you are in good health or if you are sick.

For example, a popular clinical study has been linked to the sleep of healthy people. Researchers are just trying to understand the importance of sleep. For those looking for patients with a disease, they can use you to determine exactly how and if certain drugs work.

The amount paid for clinical trials varies from trial to trial.

Payment depends on how many nights you spend at the facility, the total length of the trial period, and the number of outpatient visits. Payment can range from $2 to $000 per study.

After one test, you need to take a break of 1-3 months before participating in the next. Although a few thousand for research is a good income, you must understand the risks. In the sleep study example, you sleep at the study site for at least a month, and sometimes longer. In addition, most health insurances do not cover problems arising from a clinical trial. This means that any visits to the doctor or treatment will be paid out of your own pocket, which can be a significant disadvantage.

#9 Sell Your Hair

Did you know that you can sell your hair?

There are charities that collect donated hair to make wigs for cancer patients. But there is also a big market that will pay you for them. To sell your hair, make sure it's the same length - at least 38 cm.

Hair that has never been dyed (called virgin hair) is the most sought after. Among the colors, red hair is most in demand, since it is less common than blond or black. Most companies buy hair to make wigs or use it for hair extensions.

There are many websites on the internet that help with this process. You simply create an ad on one of them and describe your hair and the price you want. For beginner sellers, some sites have a calculator to help you figure out how much money to ask for.

You can contact buyers directly. In addition to selling your physical hair, you can actually sell their image in a photo or video. Buyers can be salon owners, companies that make hair products like shampoos and conditioners, or bloggers and trade magazines.

Real income in this case will vary. Some people get $250 per sale, while others earn up to $4000 per sale. Your annual income will depend on how long it takes you to grow your hair.

No. 10. Become a hand model

Just like in the case of selling photos of your feet, you can earn additional income by working as a hand model.

Your hands will be in demand to advertise jewelry such as rings and bracelets, hand lotion, nail polish, and more. This work mainly involves print advertising, but Spa owners may also be interested in working with you.

Of course, there is also the hand fetish market, which involves the sale of photographs of one's hands on the Internet.

To get started, contact a modeling agency with the photos you have or start selling them on social platforms yourself. This can net you about $10 for television ads and $000 for print projects.

And if you follow the path of hand fetish, then you will be able to earn several thousand a year.

#11. Work on Modeling Body Parts

Looking for a great idea to make good money without much work?

Become a model of body parts.

Specific body parts include:

  • Legs
  • Back
  • Stomach
  • Eyes
  • Teeth
  • lips

This option is suitable for both men and women. The best way to make money in this case is to advertise clothes, glasses, makeup, health and fitness products.

The amount for such services varies greatly depending on this. But on average, models manage to earn between $100 and $200 per session.

As you gain experience, you can qualify for a higher fee.

#12 Get paid for hugs

If you like hugging, become a professional in this business and earn money while doing it.

And if you think that there is no market for this field of activity, then you are mistaken. You can advertise your services with online classifieds to find customers. And when you find at least a few clients, then over time there will be more of them thanks to the recommendations.

No matter how strange this option may sound, you can make good money on it. How much does a professional hugger earn? On average, this is $60 per hour, and if you work out two sessions a day, 4 days a week, then your income will be about $2000 per month.

#13 Sell Your Eggs

If you are not interested in surrogacy, it makes sense to become an egg donor.

In order to sell your eggs, the couple or recipient must first choose you.

There are 3 main ways to donate eggs:

  • Through an agency
  • Targeted Egg Donation
  • Through a clinic with a donor service

Each has its own pros and cons, so be sure to research each option before deciding which one to pick. It is important to know that the maximum amount of sperm donation is 6 times. Egg donation payments range from $6 to $000. This amount varies depending on your general health, egg quality, and quantity sold. However, this amount can easily approach $8 if you meet certain criteria or if the couple is looking for something specific you have. For example, a certain genealogical background or a high level of education.

#14 Sell your poop

Perhaps this is one of the strangest ways to make money with your body.

The money in this case is paid for providing fecal samples. There is a new treatment called Fecal Microbiota Transplant, in which healthy stool is transferred into the intestines of a sick person.

The idea is that it helps in the treatment of Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and even obesity and autism.

To sell your feces, you must meet the following criteria:

  • The presence of a chair that meets the specified requirements
  • No disease treated with FMT
  • Leading a healthy lifestyle
  • No allergies
  • Having a healthy metabolic rate and weight
  • No drugs, piercings, or tattoos in the body within the past six months

The biggest problem for many donors is that you have to constantly and unsystematically supply material.

This is because many programs put you on a set schedule for when they need your feces.

And now about the good - how much does it cost.

Each donation will net you an average of $40 if accepted. If sample collections are frequent, selling your feces could earn you up to $13 a year.

#15. Act like a doppelgänger

If you look like any celebrity, you have a chance to earn about $350 a day.

People and companies constantly pay doubles for various services and their appearance. You will be able to earn a lot of money if you participate in photo shoots, performances and other events.

Some rich people pay look-alikes to reenact movie scenes or simply attend their parties. And it's really lucky if a celebrity you look like decides to hire you to confuse the paparazzi.

How much money can you make as a doppelgänger?

Income here will vary greatly.

For photography and performances, you can count on several hundred dollars a month. If you are lucky enough to work with a celebrity that you look like, then we will be talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars.

#16 Be a Model

This is one of the most common ways to make money with your body.

There are many options to earn money as a model:

  • Shooting for high fashion magazines
  • TV commercials and shows
  • Advertising campaigns
  • Shooting for brochures
  • Filming for catalogs
  • Filming for billboards
  • Shooting for calendars
  • Exhibitions
  • Posing at drawing lessons from nature

Models earn an average of $150 an hour. If you're a trade show model, your income will be around $300 per day and around $75 per hour for print ads.

To earn a significant amount of money as a model, you need to become famous. In this case, you do not need to look for a job - it will come to you.

#17 Dare a Voice Actor

Do you have a unique voice? Or maybe you can speak in different voices?

Then you have a chance to earn easily as a voice actor. And when it comes to making money, there are many options. Offer your services as a narrator for TV as well as movies, or be the voice of a character in an animated film. And then there is advertising on radio and television, and finally, the world of audiobooks.

Authors need voice actors to read their books for this format. A radio commercial can earn you a few hundred dollars, while reading an audiobook or narrating an animated film can earn you thousands.

#18 Take the risk of being a stunt double

Using your body to make money as a body double is an underrated way to generate extra income.

Films often involve body doubles performing stunts that can be dangerous, too risky, or very difficult for the actor to perform.

Most stunt doubles are used in action scenes, including:

  • Riding
  • Gymnastics
  • Sword work
  • stage fight
  • Martial arts
  • Vehicle maneuvering
  • Jumping, running, swimming and more
  • intimate scenes

How much you earn depends on the tricks you agree to perform.

Some of them are simple, while others are dangerous and can even lead to serious injury.

The average salary of an understudy is about $85 per year. To get into this industry, you need to connect with people in the acting community.

#19 Be a virtual friend

Do you like to hang out in companies? Do you like meeting new and interesting people?

Then become a virtual friend for someone.

These relationships can be formed and developed online, in person, or a combination of both.

Most people looking for a virtual friend are in a quiet area or have moved to a new area and don't know anyone.

Your job is to become a friend to such a person and show him everything around. This is a purely platonic relationship, and there is nothing funny about it. Most virtual friends are paid hourly, averaging around $25 an hour.

#20 Sell yourself

Body advertising became popular many years ago when a man sold his forehead to a company.

Then he got a tattoo with the logo of that company on his forehead. You are not required to be so extreme, although you can if you want. But there is an easier option - use a temporary tattoo.

Other options include wearing logo t-shirts, making videos of the company's products, etc. The amount of money that can actually be made varies widely.

If you live in a city with a large population, you may be able to claim higher pay. The same is true if you travel a lot.

On average, it is realistic to earn on this type of service from several hundred to a couple of thousand dollars.

#21 Donate your body to science

By donating your body to science after death, you will receive a free cremation, but no money.

There is a donation of the whole body, some of its parts and organs, or only organs. However, the biggest downside is that you don't get any benefit from it in your lifetime. But such a decision could save someone's life. And it's not just about organ donation for someone else to use. Many former soccer players have begun donating their brains to science to try to better understand CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy).
