That's one way to do it!
Honestly? You better work, bitch.
An OnlyFans creator who goes by the name Kitty Lixo said on the podcast "No Jumper" that after her Instagram account got banned, she managed to get it reinstated by systematically having sex with Meta employees (formerly known as Facebook employees).
Lixo didn't say what got her banned in the short clip podcast host Adam Grandmaison posted on Twitter yesterday. But she did say that the first time it happened, she started sleeping with a friend at the company to get the account restored.
Later on, when she got banned again, she said she approached things even more organized manner.
"I went on his LinkedIn and I searched up [his connections] in the integrity department," Lixo said in the clip. "We met up. I fucked a couple of them. I was able to get my account back two, three times."

Let's be unequivocally clear here.
It sucks that in 2022 one of the most viable and lucrative career options is sex work. It sucks that sexist algorithms are unfairly stacked against creators, especially those of color, and against sex workers in general — especially while literal terrorist manifestos go unnoticed for months.
And it also sucks that the systems to appeal those decisions appear to be so arbitrary and flawed, even at the world's largest social media company, that you can apparently trade sex for special treatment.
What arguably doesn't suck, though, is that Lixo is a clever businesswoman who worked around that flawed system to fix the problem — especially since her income and wellbeing relies on it.
As the youngsters would say: Gaslight. Gatekeep. Girlboss.
