Meet the parents turned pornstars who decided to film their realistic sex life and share it online - and now rake in £35k ($46,178) a month and say their kids don't mind.
The couple, who have been together for 10 years, have been adult stars for four years and still love what they do and say they never get bored of having sex with each other in front of a camera.
They rake in a whopping £35,000 per month selling the sexy snaps and saucy videos and have built up a following of 900,000 loyal fans who subscribe to their work.
Jess and Mike chatted to Real Fix – which features real people telling extraordinary stories – about the day-to-day life of being pornstars.
Jess, a former semi-permanent make-up artist, from Southend, England, said: "It never gets boring for us.
"I doesn't really feel like were pornstars - as we're just doing what we normally would but filming it.
"A lot of people who watch us say it’s nice to see real love.
“We put a camera in the room and people can see what it’s really like when we have sex."
Mike, a former personal trainer, said: "I get to have sex with my wife every day and love life and get paid for it.
"It's great and made us stronger as a couple."
Mike and Jess first met in August 2012 when he worked as a personal trainer at the gym she attended.
Mike asked her on a date to Thorpe Park in October 2012 and they became a couple on the same day after a first kiss confirmed that Jess was the one.
Jess said: "When I first saw Mike I thought: 'How have they got someone so fit working at the gym?'"
After hitting it off the couple married in June 2017, and had a son, now eight, together as well as bringing up Jess' daughter, 12, from a previous relationship.
The pair started posting their saucy videos on Pornhub in December 2018 and say their videos help others.
"I had seen that Pornhub would pay based on how well your videos did," Mike said.
"We were struggling to have quality time together because we were stressed with our businesses so I thought this might be a great side hustle for us."
"As soon as he suggested it, I said yes straight away," Jess said.
The couple kept their antics a secret to start with, but revealed their job to friends and family in February 2020 and received a mostly positive response.
Mike said: "We decided we wouldn't tell anyone to start with, but it only took a month for someone to find out.
Jess said: "My friend messaged me asking if I was a pornstar and my heart sank as I didn't know how she knew.
"So, I told my mum from there and she was really chilled about it.
"All our families care about is that we are happily married and that we love each other."
Eventually, they confessed to their children what they did for a living in 2020.
"Our eldest knows pretty much everything," Jess said.
"I ask him what he thinks and he just says: 'It's none of my business.'"
Mike said: "One is too young to fully know what we do, our eldest was very mature and said as long as we are happy and love them then it’s not a problem at all."
The couple get requests from subscribers and plan their content each week.
"I've had someone ask me to dress up as Elsa and play the Frozen song in the background," Jess said.
"I said no to that one.
"We've made £150 just for a video of us tickling each other."
The pair have also started introducing a third girl to their videos.
"We delved into threesomes recently," Jess said.
"It was nerve-wracking, but we see it as work and we're all professional."
The couple said it has also improved their own relationship and brought them closer together.
"We do get nasty comments online, but it doesn't affect us," Mike said.
"We're happy and our kids are happy so that's all that matters."
Jess said: "People like to watch us too because we’re a real couple and tell us it’s even saved their relationship - it's done wonders for our relationship too.
“It’s brought us closer together and our bond is stronger than it's ever been.
“It’s made our relationship even better, it's stronger than ever.”
