A “vile” man paid by OnlyFans subscribers to film himself performing sex acts and urinating on London Underground trains has been jailed.
Nikki Darke, 37, of Earlham Grove, east London, posted videos on the social media platform under the pseudonym “public p*****”, according to British Transport Police (BTP).
OnlyFans – which is often used by sex workers but also celebrities, musicians and comedians – allows “creators” to share pictures and videos with their paying subscribers.
Darke also posted videos on Twitter.
Inner London Crown Court heard how he committed multiple indecent acts, including urinating on seats and masturbating in front of other passengers while travelling on the Piccadilly line between February and July.
He was arrested on 4 September after being spotted by plain-clothed police officers.
The seizure of his mobile phone led to the discovery that he also used his online accounts to obtain indecent images of children.

When asked in interview about the content he was sharing, he replied: “It’s me doing really stupid things in public places.”
He added that he earned money by taking requests for what he should do.
“The people that pay, that’s what they want to see,” he explained.
Darke was charged with outraging public decency, criminal damage and making indecent images of children.
On 3 December, he was sentenced to 16 months in prison and handed a 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order – banning him from taking photographs or videos in public.
Detective Constable Christopher Pretty, of BTP, said: “This was a foul and frankly absurd case, and I’m pleased to see such a vile offender taken off the network.
“It’s clear Darke’s actions were for his own selfish amusement and gratification, yet a number of passengers were subjected to witnessing his odious behaviour.
“As a result of our extensive enquiries, we not only reprimanded Darke for the damage he caused to railway property and the indecent acts he was committing, but also for the utterly indefensible indecent images he gathered.”
