If you’re a skint student, there’s a lot of jobs you can turn to in order to make some extra cash – bar work, waitressing, stocking supermarket shelves, being squashed by plus-size models…
Yes, it turns out that’s a thing. Some men will actually pay handsomely to watch a petite woman crushed by larger ladies.
Odette Delacroix, from Los Angeles, is just 5ft tall and weighs a slender 6st 2lb, and she will sometimes be crushed by up to five women who can clock in at a combined 125 stone or more.
It means she sometimes has to hold her breath for up to four minutes at a time and she claims she has even feared for her life on more than one occasion.
But while that may sound like a tough day at the office to the rest of us, Odette says she adores her work.
Speaking to the Mirror, she said:
I know it sounds weird, but I love being squashed – it’s a thrill. I get such a physical pleasure from being pinned down, trapped or surrounded. It’s the opposite of claustrophobia for me.
Women with size 102ZZZ breasts have pressed up against me and I couldn’t breathe at all, yet I felt so calm. And in the last few years I’ve been squashed by some of the biggest butts and boobs in the world. I once had a model with a 7ft bum sit on me.
Odette now regularly posts videos of herself being crushed by bulky women on porn and fetish sites. And her chosen career has proven extremely lucrative – she’s brought in more than £125,000, bought a three-bedroom house and been on a number of luxurious holidays.
Odette became involved in the bizarre profession when she was 19 and started nude modelling.
I was hired by some of my art student friends to model for their paintings. I realised how much I enjoyed nude modelling and one of the artists suggested I try fetish modelling. I did a few bondage-style shoots, earning up to £700 per week. Over time, I expanded what I was willing to do and set up my own website to showcase my modelling work.
Then in 2011, while I was at university, I received a request from a fan of my photos, asking if I’d consider being squashed. I’d never heard of it, but he assured me men would pay good money if I put a clip up on my website. I thought I’d give it a go.
It’s certainly not what Odette expected to be doing for a living – apparently her dream was to become a literary editor – but we guess being crushed by larger women beats the mundanity of working in an office!
