A second teacher at a small Missouri high school that recently went viral has been suspended over her OnlyFans account.

Now, over the past few years, we've seen a growing number of people turn to OnlyFans to earn themselves a bit of extra cash alongside their "regular jobs."

But it seems as though at some point the nature of their content jeopardizes their other careers so they're forced to make a difficult decision - and for others, like 31-year-old Megan Gaither, that decision is made for them.

Gaither, who is an English teacher and varsity cheerleading coach at St. Clair High School in Franklin County, was recently put on leave after officials at the establishment discovered that she was a creator on the adult platform.

Speaking to the St Louis Post-Dispatch, Gaither revealed that she set up an OnlyFans account back in May to help pay back more than $125,000 in student loans, earning herself about $47,500 in only one year.

"Teaching does not financially support a person," she told the outlet. "It’s really hard to stretch those paychecks during the summer. That's why I did it."

However, despite keeping her face directly out of the X-rated content she produces, she said a student slipped a note under her classroom door to say they "knew her secret."

But the 31-year-old stated that she deactivated her account after she saw the consequences of having an OnlyFans through another English teacher at the school.

Brianna Coppage quit her teaching job after administrators at the school discovered her risqué side hustle.

Speaking to Fox News, she has now opened up about how she managed to make it into a million-dollar empire.

"I started it, one, to just supplement my income and kind of see what happens and possibly make extra money," she told the outlet. "Like, I have student loans. I was working on my third degree. So, I also have a master’s degree in education, and then I was working on my specialist degree."

However, after receiving reports of her OnlyFans content, Coppage was placed on leave, just like Gaither currently is.

"They specifically said they got a report from an adult in the Sullivan School District, and they asked, do I have any other income streams like outside of teaching? And I said, 'Yes, I do have an OnlyFans," she recalled. "They asked how long I had been doing it, if it was during my own time or...anything at school, which I told them."

She assured the school that her work on the adult website was "completely separate" from her professional life.

However, it doesn't seem to have bothered the former teacher too much as since she's quit her teaching job, she's managed to secure herself a whopping $1.5 million on the platform just from subscribers and other people paying for her content.

"I will also say that I have tens of thousands of fans now. And I have, you know, far exceeded my teacher salary for the year," she said.

When asked if she regrets any of her actions, she said that she would do it again.

"I don’t regret it. I still strongly feel that. People are allowed to have personal lives outside of their career. And I’ve seen a lot of comments like, 'Well, what if the students found it or it’s online? People are going to see it,'" she said. "And I don’t necessarily disagree with that."

"I know for a fact that, one, students are not the ones who found it," she added. "They’re not the ones who reported it. And they didn’t see it until adults posted my link in a community group."
