OnlyFans is it ban or no ban?

In mid-late August 2021, OnlyFans announced starting in October, the company will prohibit creators from posting material with sexually explicit conduct on its website, which many sex workers use to sell fans explicit content. 

A few days later, OnlyFans is canceling its upcoming ban on the sexually explicit content that built the subscription platform. The company tweeted on August 25 that it “secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and has suspended the planned October 1 policy change.”

OnlyFans did not elaborate on what changed, only thanking users and creators “for making your voices heard” and adding that a message would go out to creators soon. “OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators,” the company added.

OnlyFans is a site where fans pay a monthly subscription fee between $5 and $50 to view images and videos from creators. Fans can also pay for exclusive content and give “tips” for custom pictures or videos.

The news disappointed some of the sex workers who’ve come to rely on OnlyFans.  It is also a good wake up call to all sex workers. It seems like the company was seeking to do what so many others had: build a business on the back of adult content then abandon it when mainstream success came calling.
