The majority of us make it to pay day every month by putting in a lot of hard work and sometimes across unsociable hours. Some of us have jobs that are so stressful that we pour our blood sweat and tears into it every single day.
Melisande Sin, 25, can teach you everything there is to know about BDSM – but be prepared to pay for it (in both pain and money). The dominatrix from Gdansk, Poland, makes £15,000 per month torturing men in inventive ways – from leaving them in a cell for days to tying them up and whipping them.
People can be attracted to virtually anything on the planet. Some act on those desires and others keep it in a realm of fantasy. There’s foot fetishes, scat fetishes, bondage fetishes, car fetishes…you get the picture.

A man who has been paying women to give him wedgies for around five years estimates that he’s gone through between 110 to 140 pairs of underwear. He said: “Sometimes I will climax as it’s happening. Other times it’s not until later, I’ll be thinking about it and I will probably masturbate to it.”

An erotica model has splurged over £33,000 on plastic surgery to enhance her body in a bid to look like a fetish sex doll. When Ariane Saint-Amour, 28, from Montreal, Canada, left college, she began to strip in clubs to pay for body modifications and latex bodysuits.

Making a living by sharing pictures of yourself on social media sounds like a dream job. Not even just for the vainest among us, either (I mean, we all like to look nice, but…) – it’d sound amazing to almost anyone, because a ten-second working day can’t really be topped.
