The saying goes, “Behind every great man is a woman.” But for Kelly Stark, it’s more like, “Behind every great woman’s X-rated snaps is a man.”
While his 50-hours-per-week job as an IT manager pays $250K a year, Stark’s husband has an unusual side gig: Shooting racy material of Kelly for strangers to lust over online.
“Who doesn’t want to take sexy photos of their partner?” the Phoenix, Ariz., dad told The Post. “I can do it — and have someone fund our next vacation!”
Clients of the wildly popular OnlyFans app fork over a $9.99 monthly subscription to ogle his pictures and videos of Kelly posing naked in the desert near the couple’s home, soaping up in the shower or wearing lacy underwear and toasting waffles in the kitchen.
Those with deep pockets can shell out an extra $25 per minute for pre-recorded custom videos showing her using a sex toy while saying their name.
“It’s a fun thing we do together,” said mom-of-two Kelly, 45, of the teamwork with her spouse, which brings an average $6K into the household every month and helps fund the $20K per year she spends on tuition and textbooks for nursing college.
Meanwhile, her significant other, who asked for his name to be withheld for fear of repercussions from bosses at his firm, explained that the sessions add spark to their 18-year marriage.
After all, while having the extra money is key, the boost it gives to their marriage is the real benefit of the project. “It puts the best versions of ourselves out there,” added the other half. He noted that Kelly works hard to maintain her great shape (including no longer drinking alcohol while following a plant-based diet) and he follows suit.
The result is a healthy couple with strong carnal desires that perfectly match.
“There is a sexual charge to it,” he said, explaining how their already active love life has been boosted by the filming sessions. “It can be a turn-on.”
Kelly chimed in: “When you’re [behaving] sexy, I feel like it carries over. My love language is words of affirmation. When we are doing photographs, my husband is constantly giving me praise. That love turns into sexual feelings.
“We’ve stopped many times [during shoots] to enjoy each other’s company.”
This physical and emotional connections reinforced their bond and brought them even closer together.
As for “sharing” Kelly’s charms with other admirers, her 51-year-old soulmate believes it’s a privilege.
He said: “I learned early on that Kelly turns heads wherever we go. “Many years ago, our youngest son said to me: ‘Hey Dad, did you see the way that guy looked at Mom?’ and I explained how, if I got upset every time someone admired Kelly, I would be angry all the time.
“I’ve taken the approach that it’s a compliment to me.”
He described Kelly’s appeal as “a little bit like her super power,” adding: “I’ve never met anyone who came across Kelly and didn’t adore her in some way. Who am I to get in the way of that?”
Kelly launched her OnlyFans account in the summer of 2019 to meet demand from her 167K Instagram followers who wanted to see more of the 5-foot-6.5, 133-lb. blond.
She started modeling in 2002, a year after getting married, by sending risque bikini shots to swimwear company Malibu Strings in return for free products.
“I got turned on to the brand because we’d booked an adults-only vacation to the Temptation resort in Cancun and I wanted some sexy micro-bikinis,” recalled Kelly, who has always been a highly sensual person.
At the same time, she contributed to the sofcore porn website Southern Charms, which posts amateur photos of nude and partially-clothed women.
“We’d take pictures in the backyard near the pool once the kids had gone to bed,” recalled the mom, whose boys are now ages 24 and 21. “None of our neighbors said anything.”
Then, in 2007, in a bid to “express myself sexually” even further and earn dollars while indulging her pleasure, she began stripping and pole-dancing at Phoenix nightclubs three nights a week between 7 p.m. and 2 a.m.
“I did it for about five years but then the appeal began to wear thin of taking to the stage in eight-inch platform heels,” she joked. “So I took a break for seven years.”
Fast forward to June 2019 when — in tandem with studying to be a registered nurse and simultaneously pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing — she decided to make a comeback with her biggest cash cow, the OnlyFans site.
Kelly’s earnings have tripled since the start of the pandemic last March.
It has led to busy evenings and weekends shooting fresh material, which Kelly juggles with her nursing classes due to be completed when she qualifies this December.
“I use a Nikon D7200 for outdoor shots or an iPhone12,” said her cameraman, who has no professional photography training.
One of his most challenging tasks is subtly telling his wife how to show off her assets to their best advantage.
“The last thing I want to be is mean,” he explained. “So I use code. If I say: ‘Hey, get on your toes, that’s code for: ‘your bottom doesn’t look right in this photo so get on your toes just to flex so that it does.’
“[But] there are times when I have to say: ‘Do this, suck it in, or push the breasts together.’”
The tech exec thinks it’s probably best if Kelly’s loyal subscribers fantasizing about his wife don’t know her other half is behind the lens.
“It might be better for them if they thought someone else is taking the pictures — like a stranger or maybe some sexy woman,” he laughed.
As for anyone who might judge him, the silver fox has little patience.
“I am sure there are some people who would say: ‘You take photos of your wife? Why would you do that?’ he said.
“I’m like: ‘My view of happiness and love is different from yours. If this is something you couldn’t do or [you don’t] share your wife’s beauty, then I’m sorry, I feel differently about it.’”
