Rick n Griff – the social media stars who are giving us what we want to see
Rick n Griff are a gym-buff couple who keep us motivated with their muscle-worship-worthy posts and bedroom shenanigans.
We caught up with the guys for a behind-the-scenes look at their online life.
You kind of fell into the business of being an Insta-couple by accident – did you ever have to sit down and figure out how you were going to navigate this journey as a couple, or has it just evolved organically?
Usually what we do is very go-with-the-flow. We try lots of different things and see what people respond to or don’t respond to, and let that steer us in the right direction.
You’ve made the move into OnlyFans. What led you to realise that you were ready to go there with the explicit content?
At first, our OnlyFans was more ‘lifestyle’ blog-ish – workouts, naked chef vids, that kind of thing.
We slowly started to get more comfortable with the idea of getting more explicit when we realised that it really didn’t go against anything that was already a part of who we were.
We’ve shared explicit content for free for a while on Tumblr and dating apps. One day, it just dawned on us – why give it away for free if people are willing to subscribe to see what they want to see?
Do you get a lot of requests from fans about specific stuff they want to see you do – especially now you’re creating explicit content?
Yes, for sure. Generally we don’t take requests. But it’s not outside the realm of possibility if their request falls in line with stuff we’d be into anyway.
You recently opened your online store, Two Kings Unlimited. In your range of merch, you sell dildo replicas of your dicks. How does this not get super-competitive?
Our dicks are so different from the other, so each appeals to its own market. Griff’s is Husband Dick and Rick’s we call the Louisville Slugger.
We also have the Deluxe DP model, which is both of ours moulded together for anyone out there who wants to know what both feel like simultaneously. The DP model is by far the best seller.
Not many relationships could withstand the intensity of living together, working together, and building a business together – especially when the business is based around presenting the relationship to your audience. Do you have a structured approach to ensuring that you get time by yourselves, or do you call it out and take a time-out when you feel you need it?
In the beginning, it was a bit more of a strain on our personal time – building a brand and a following is very time-consuming.
Now that we’re more established, we are able to relax more. We have so much content in our archives now that we can pull from that if we need some R&R with each other away from social media.
