OnlyFans Receives Huge Backlash After Banning ‘S3xually Explicit Content’

OnlyFans Receives Huge Backlash After Banning ‘S3xually Explicit Content’

OnlyFans, a subscription service primarily known for content made by sex workers, has announced a ban on ‘pornography’ on the platform.

The decision has been met with ire from both sex workers and external commentators, given the reliance of thousands of people on OnlyFans for a reliable income.

OnlyFans has reportedly decided to ban sexually explicit material after pressure from banks and payment processors. However, it will still allow nudity.

Taylor Lorenz and Alyssa Lukpay, reporters for The New York Times, spoke to content creators who used the platform about the consequences this ban will have.

One said, “people are not going to be able to make ends meets.”

A 22 year old creator in New York, who began making content during the pandemic, explained that “OnlyFans is how I pay my rent. I feed myself from this.” He has been using his income from the plaform to pay off his student loans.

Other sex workers have taken to Twitter to express their frustration and anger at the platform’s decision.

 

 

Part of the reason why OnlyFans has been so popular is that it is often safer than other forms of sex work, or the porn industry. Creators, though, must pay the platform 20 per cent of their income.

A statement from the company given to Bloomberg said: “In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of our platform, and continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.”

Prior to this decision, OnlyFans has come under pressure for various reasons. For example, it introduced a new app featuring top content creators – but no nudity, despite sex work being the platform’s most notable output. 

Earlier this August, US congresswoman Ann Wagner began a bipartisan colaition calling for the platform to be investigated by the Department of Justice over concerns it was being used for underage content.

Whether OnlyFans will be able to survive the change is unclear, as a number of journalists, comedians and commentators have expressed solidarity with OnlyFans creators online.
