This is something that can not be done on Instagram as they have quite strict laws on sexual content or nudity that can have your account closed or banned.

But Tiktok has become a loophole and people will be there gathered watching and paying for those lives done very late at night.

Some even go ahead and host the platforms for girls to be coming online to expose themselves and once they get paid, they also pay their dues to the host.
